MAC in Extra Dimension Skin finish in SUPERB
Ordering MAC limited edition items that are constantly out of stock has let me try out multiple companies like Dillards and Nordstroms. Nordstroms is the more forgiving of the two with free shipping (although my products came in an untaped, unsecure box). Dillards, on the other hand, has $8 flat rate shipping and guess what? My back up of the Reel Sexy l/s is out of stock and they’re still “searching” for it. Anyway…
I ordered the MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Superb ($29) a few days after the collection was released (lucky me for finding it in stock! The other two are still in stock on Nordstroms). I wasn’t too interested and then I read reviews about how it’s a dupe to Estee Lauder Modern Mercury and the texture of these is well…”superb”. So I took the plunge!
The texture of these is so buttery smooth and the shimmer is very understated for being a MAC MSF. I really love how beautifully it blends that I’m considering getting Whisper of Gilt as well… but I own sooo many highlighters especially of that color so I’m not sure.
Superb is an extremely unique highlighting shade. Many say it’s universal and judging from reviews, I’d say so! It’s a very rose gold metallic shade that looks radiant and natural on the skin because it has fine shimmers as opposed to glittery chunks.
My thoughts on Superb? If you’re in the market for another highlighter and get the chance to try Superb, please do so! It might be a bit pricey but for the amount of product you’re getting for this color and texture, you’re getting quite the bargain!
