I’ve been waiting in high anticipation of the MAC Extra Dimension Highlighters. Early buzz indicated these would be a similar formula to the Estee Lauder Powder Gelees that were hard to get your hands on.
Out of the three released Superb seemed to be the best fit for me. Whisper of Gilt seemed too light (but would be good if I were looking for JUST a highlighter) and Glorify seemed too brassy and dark (but would look EXCELLENT on someone who is very tanned).
What the MAC website has to say about Extra Dimension Highlighter:
A liquid-powder highlighter with prismatic reflections that sculpts, highlights and models the face. The cool, creamy near-fluid formula creates a luminous, well-defined finish. Wears 10 hours.
9 g / 0.31 US oz
Superb (soft peachy nude with multi-dimensional shimmer) is a shimmery bronzed peach, which actually ends up looking rather natural on the face. The powder is nice and smooth, with just the right amount of pigment for my skin tone. This makes an excellent blush for those around my tone (MAC NW25) or lighter, and a gorgeous highlighter for those with darker tones.
This is one of those products that I’m itching to buy a backup of. Generally, unless it’s something that I use up quite quickly, I’m not a backup buyer. However, I may have a panic attack if I run out of Superb.
Superb is a very near dupe for Estee Lauder Modern Mercury, which I sadly missed out on… but to check out comparison swatches you can head over to visit Danielle at Bloomin’ Beauty!
