Review: MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish in "Superb"

Hello my wonderful readers,

I have a review for you today...!I have to say I had such a difficult time writing this review due to the nature of this product. I have been using it for a while now but I haven't managed to find the perfect application or the perfect use for it. Enough with the babbling though...let's get on with the review...


  • The colour is reasonably wearable
  • It it also great for many different skin tones. We very rarely encounter a product that could be used by people with different skin tones. 
  • It is easily blendable 
  • It is extremely pigmented
  • It has a unique texture(It resembles a cream when applied but it has a powder-like finish)
  • It is a unique product all around. 
  • The shimmer is a little chunky for every day wear. It is not glitter as such but, as I said, shimmer. 
  • It can look a bit too dark (when used a highlighter) for people with very light/fair skin tones. 
  • You have to apply it either with your fingers or a dense synthetic brush. Other types of brushes won't manage to pick up enough product.
  • The price
My experience: 
As I said, it is a very unique product. I love the finish it gives but because I am extremely pale I think that it doesn't look as good as it would look if I was a bit tanned. I am not talking...Hawaiian Tropic...just a sun-kissed sort of tan. I think it would be amazing for summer and it can double as an all over bronzey highlighter for a night out. I have nothing similar in my collection and I am glad I managed to pick it up. If you are really really fair you can still make it work by blending it in a little more hence taking away a bit of its colour(that is how I am currently using it). And last, but not least, the brush I have been applying it with is the  Sigma P82(it is the precision round from the Sigmax line).

So...this is my review of the Extra Dimension skinfinish in the colour "Superb". I hope it was informative and helpful. If you have anything to add or any comments please do feel free to leave me a comment.


  1. Excellent review!
    I love the pros and cons!!!

    Σε προσκαλώ να ρίξεις μια ματιά και στο δικό μου blog:

  2. great review! that color is sooo pretty but i get what you are saying it does look like it'd be a bit too strong for my skin tone but might be so pretty as a light eye shadow!!

  3. @The scent of glamour:
    Thank you!!Will do :)

    @Lisa: It is an amazing colour but it can be a bit too dark for me as well. I have thought about using it as an eye-shadow and I want to try that soon. The more I have been using it, actually, the more I lean toward the fact that you have to blend it quite well in order to take most of the darkness away and leave that amazing sheen behind.
