MAC Into the Pink is a slightly warm-toned, medium pink with a metallic finish. It is a permanent blush that retails for $31.00 and contains 0.14 oz.
MAC Into the Pink Extra Dimension Blush ($28.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a light-medium pink with very subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. At first, it seemed like it might have a more frosted shimmer to it, but as I applied and blended out the color, it yielded that same, glowing, luminous finish that I've come to expect from the formula. The blush had opaque pigmentation, but the softer consistency (that wasn't dry or dusty!) made it easy to pickup less product on my brush for less coverage as well. The blush also blended out with ease, so if I felt like I over-applied, I could correct it. This shade wore well for almost nine hours before fading.
The Extra Dimension Blush formula is supposed to have "long-wearing colour with prismatic reflections" that wears for "10 hours." The formula is typically very pigmented with a soft, smooth texture that's firmer in the pan but not difficult to use--I had no issues grabbing color with even my softest brushes--and has no dustiness or powderiness in the pan. The blushes are usually blendable with a luminous glow on the cheeks that did not emphasize my skin's natural texture. With MAC's newly-added permanent shades, the wear time has ranged from eight to ten hours.
