Review: MAC Superb Extra Dimension Skinfinish


Regularly, I consider myself to be pretty organized... that was until I found an untouched, four month old MAC haul. Oops? I probably shouldn't even review this, as it's no longer available, but it's so gorgeous and fun to look at.




Forget your regular MSF, we've entered an Extra Dimension. From the first glance you can see that these are a little different. They have an interesting domed wave design and the MAC logo stamped on the upper half. Once you give them a little swatch, you really notice the unique qualities of this product: it's a cream, liquid and powder hybrid that is so creamy and pigmented... it's a bit crazy actually.

MAC Redhead MSF, MAC Superb Extra Dimension Skinfinish, MAC Perfect Topping MSF

Superb is a soft peachy nude with a hint of a rose gold/coppery sheen.As you can see it's less pink than Redhead, and it's darker and more metallic than Perfect Topping. It's a universally flattering shade that would suit both warm and cool tones nicely. The powder is quite pigmented, so it works nicely as a blush when applied with a light hand, but it can also be used as a typical highlighter.

For those who worry about glitter/shimmer pieces in their MSF, Extra Dimensions are the answer; the texture of the powder is soft, totally smooth and refined. When you run your finger over the product it almost feels like it should be a cream, but when you apply it to your skin it acts like a powder.

Overall, MAC really delivered with this formula. If you didn't pick up on it when it was released, and you get a second chance (blog sale, Ebay, swap, etc...) jump on it! Did you try any of the Extra Dimension Skinfinishes? What did you think of them?

  1. I have Superb and love it. Now I regret not getting the pale gold one too (can't remember the name of that one).
