New MAC Haul - Extra Dimension Skinfinish & Tres Cheek Blush

I have been waiting for the new release of the MAC Extra Dimension and Tres Cheek collection and i was able to get my hands on the products before they sold out!

I am a big fan of the MAC Skinfinishes and when i saw these i knew i had to get them. They are much more smoother in application than the original skinfinishes.

  • MAC Extra Dimesion Skinfinish (Whisper of Guilt, Superb) £21.50 HERE
These products are limited edition and will sell out very quickly.
I only wanted two of the shades (superb and whisper of guilt). These give a beautiful highlighted sheen to the skin and are suitable for all skin tones. I love applying these on my cheekbones, bridge of my nose and temples. They are super pigmented, so a little bit of product goes a long way. 

MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish Superb
Superb is a great highlighter but it has a more pinkier undertone compared with Whisper of Gilt. I think out of all three shades, this is the most wearable for all skin tones.

MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish Whisper of Gilt.
This is a gorgeous champagne colour and sort of reminds me of the MAC Skinfinish in Candlelight, which i never got the chance to purchase.

This shade may look a bit chalky on very dark skins, however on my NC42 skin it looks fab! I would definatly tell you girlies to buy it before it sells out! ;) 

I wasn't sure about the MAC Viva Glam V lipstick until i had swatched it, as soon as i did i knew i had to buy it.

MAC Viva Glam V Lipstick

This shade is a sheer pink on my lips. Its a MAC Lustre lipstick which i prefer wearing. The colour is a my lips but better and the sheen really moisturizes my lips! I prefer more subtle colours to wear throughout the day, because when you have six straight hours of lectures, the last thing on my mind is to reapply lipstick. ;)

The MAC Viva Glam Lipsticks are £13.50 and can be purchased HERE

Also the full price spent (excluding VAT) goes towards men and women affected by HIV and AIDS worldwide.

The last thing i purchased was a MAC Blusher from the Tres Cheek collection. As many of you know i adore oranges and corals.

The new Tres Cheek blushers retail at £17.50 and can be bought HERE

Modern Mandarin is a satin finish blush which can be built up. It is described as a red-orange shade. This shade is flattering for olive, tanned skin tones but would also suit fair skinned people. 

Some people may find this shade intimidating, however it applies sheerly and can then be built up for the desired look.

Have any of you purchased any of the new MAC products? If so, how are you finding them? x


  1. I got superb, love it! love your post :) x

  2. I actually went out & bought one of the few shades of eyeshadow they had left at my local store after seeing your post about this collection on Facebook :-) I got Grand Galaxy, the light metallic lavender shade. Really gorgeous! Unfortunately, I totally lost my mind while I was there, swatching everything in sight, and forgot to ask about skinfinishes & blushes for this lineup :-( Really kicking myself now as that blush looks incredible! So does the skinfinish but, unfortunately, shimmery powders make my pores look horrible :-( I recently ordered some skinfinish in light plus & medium though, as the natural line of skinfinishes are probably more suited to my skin. My pores just do not like shimmer! I can get away with it with blush, but not all over my face. Not even a light dusting. Wish I could though, as they look beautiful!
