Review for: Show Gold, Bleaming Blush, Other more...
I am a full fledged highlighter junkie and MAC’s Extra Dimension Skinfinish is one of my favorites on the market. I own the following shades:

1. Show Gold (Peach that breaks pink)
2. Beaming Blush (Pink that breaks gold)
3. Doublegleam (Beige that breaks silver)
4. Whisper of Gilt (Light soft white with shimmery sheen)
5. Oh, Darling! (Metallic Gold)

All of the shades mentioned above are permanent except for Whisper of Gilt which to the best to my knowledge is only permanent in the U.K. (I purchased Whisper of Gilt during Holiday 2016 and 2017 when it was re-released as limited edition.) I don’t own the shades Soft Frost (white that breaks violet) or Superb (Patina Bronze.) The shade range is very inclusive. There’s really something for everyone in this collection.

Formula: The Extra Dimension Skinfinish is a hybrid liquid-powder formula. These long lasting highlighters have prismatic reflections designed to sculpt and highlight your face, leaving a luminous, well-defined finish. They are highly pigmented, silky smooth and deliver an intense glow. I use a tapered brush such as the Morphe M501 Pro Pointed Blender or the Luxie Beauty 181 to apply this product. FYI: Whisper of Gilt and Show Gold have visible glitter.

Packaging: I like that these highlighters have a clear window so that you can see which shade you’re picking up. The powder is embossed with the MAC logo which is a nice touch. The packaging definitely doesn’t look cheap.

Pricing: For $34 you receive 9 g/0.31 US oz of product. I’d consider this a fair price point for a prestige brand highlighter. Plus, I highly doubt that you’ll ever hit pan.

Availability: The Extra Dimension Skinfinish Collection can be purchased at any MAC location as well as major department stores such as Macy’s, Nordstrom and Dillard’s.

Final Thoughts: Yes, I would recommend this product. However, it’s not for the faint of heart. I hope that MAC will make Whisper of Gilt permanent in the USA soon!

Review for: Whisper of Guilt more...
This highlight is definitely not for the people looking for a natural subtle look. There is a iridescent purple sort of sha-bang going on with this highlight but aside from an everday look, I would highly reccomend. The formul is very smooth and glides nicely onto the skin and the powder doesn’t carry any large chunks of glitter. The powder is a compact and carries 9 grams of product. Although not the usual gold/silver shade, it really does sit nicely on the skin, and doesn’t look streaky or in any way obscure. I could not reccomened a better highlight for a festival look either, and with a spritz of any sort of facial spray of water onto the applicating brush, the highlight becomes even more pigmented for a more intense highlight!

Review for: Oh Darling! more...
A makeup artist tried this on me during a makeover.
I have been hooked ever since! 

This gives a bright shimmery (not sparkly) glow. It’s light golden but not yellow. It looks very natural and can be worn during the day. 

You can use a little for a natural look or more for a more glamorous look. 

I brush this on the tops of my cheeks and a little down my nose. 

I have been using the same one since last April when I purchased it. Will definitely purchase it again.

Review for: Whisper of Guilt more...
This is the perfect highlight if you are looking for something that is somewhere in between subtle and blinding! I will say that I have very light, warm toned skin so I’m sure it shows up better on my skin than it would on deeper shades. It has also become my go to if I think an eye look gets a little too dramatic, I can always just put a little of this on top of the look and it calms the color down while keeping the sparkle. I end up reaching for it in one way or another about 75% of the time I’m putting on my makeup, so if you’re considering it, I highly recommend it!

Beautiful pale gold highlighter. Don’t go heavy handed because this goes a long way. Easy to apply but build it up because it is intense. Has a dryer formula but goes on so glossy. One of my favorite formulas of highlighter. I have the limited edition winter one with a mirror so I love that packaging.

Review for: Double-Gleam more...
I saw one of my favorite youtubers rave about this highlighter as one of her favorites for very fair skin so I had to have it. It was hard to track down. I ordered through MAC and it was on back order so long I ended up with a refund. I ended up purchasing from Poshmark as I was desperate. Such a beautiful highlighter. I use it everyday as a highlighter and an eyeshadow.

Review for: Whisper of Guilt more...
I love highlighters and sometimes I really enjoy more colourful ones. I love the light lavender/purple shift this highlighter has. I find it quite flattering on my skin tone. The formula is a bit shimmer, but I don’t mind because the shade is absolutely gorgeous. It gives me mermaid vibes and I cannot express how beautiful I think it looks when the sun hits it. It’s such a gorgeous product.

Review for: Bleaming Blush more...
These have an insane amount of shine and the colors are beautiful. I do have to be careful how much I put on because some colors can get dark on my skin tone. There is some glitter visible in these that show up on the face but I seem to really like it in this soft formula. It’s very eye catching on the skin and I love wearing it for special occasions

this skin finish is excellent for a soft, or glam highlight. the color range is great for all skin tones and has a minimal glittery effect. dimensional is the perfect description of the formula, a little goes a long way. and to amp up a look dab a bit into the corners of the eyes and the cupids bow for a monochromatic look.
