Product Review – Mac’s Extra Dimension Skinfinish

Mac's Extra Dimension Skinfinish (Definitely Defined)

Highlighting is one of my favorite tricks when it comes to makeup.  My usual highlighting products include Mac’s Cream Blushes (Shades – Hush and Shell) and Mac’s  Iridescent Powder (Shade – Silver Dusk).

While shopping at Mac a few weeks ago I came across their Extra Dimension Skinfinish.  It is a liquid-powder highlighter that sculpts, highlights, and adds dimension to your face.  It comes in three shades: Definitely Defined, Double Definition and Shape the Future.  See below for a description of each.  I purchased Definitely Defined as I felt it would be more fitting for my skin tone.  The cost….30 bucks!

Shades

  • Definitely Defined – silvery pink/soft rose with shimmer
  • Shape the Future – pastel pink with iridescence/soft brick with light shimmer
  • Double Definition – soft shimmery gold, patina bronze

Today while doing my makeup, I decided to make my cheekbones the focal point of today’s look.  I kept my eyes simple with just a little eyeliner and mascara.  For my lips, I lined and filled them in with Urban Decay’s Lip Liner (Shade – Naked).  For my cheeks, I used Mac’s Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Definitely Defined.  I applied the silvery pink as a highlight for my cheekbone and the soft rose on my cheeks for scultping.  See the pic below.

Review

I can honestly say that this highlighter definitely sculpts, highlights and adds dimension!  I have a fat face (don’t judge me and my pudge lol) and this product helped sculpt/define my cheek bones, making my face look slimmer.  My face also had a radiant glow after using this product. When I applied the highlighter, I used my Real Techniques Blush Brush but found that using my fingers provided a better application because the Techniques brush didn’t pick up as much product.  You can see in the picture how my fingers picked up a lot of the product….sometimes your fingers are the best tools when it comes to makeup.   I would like to see how this product looks when applied wet.  Maybe I will try that tomorrow or in a video tutorial.  Overall, I think this is a great product.  It provides a natural highlight and glow; perfect for day and night!
