MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish Soft Frost

It’s snowing! Time for more ethereal glow!

This is the MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish in the color Soft Frost. I’ve wanted this since it came out, but many others wanted it too and so it was very often sold out. Luckily, this is a permanent item and keeps getting restocked so I finally have mine. In the pan it looks plain white, only when you tilt it just right you can see the purple shimmer.

Swatch! It’s purple alright. There’s not much of a color shift to it, it changes a little from more pink purple to more blue purple, but that’s only when you look very closely. So, there’s no duochrome quality to it. The base color does not apply as far as I can tell. On me it looks completely invisible unless the light hits in which case it looks like in this swatch. You can buff it out some to make it more subtle as well. So this should be wearable for all skintones despite looking stark white in the pan, but I only tested it on my skin of course.

The shimmer is very fine. I can see no sparkles in it. This is one of the finest highlighters I own.

On my cheeks it lasts about nine hours. Qualitywise one of the best highlighters I own and despite the fact that it’s purple it’s surprisingly wearable. The price is a bit steep though, imo. I do want to mention that Nyx has a very similar highlighter for a lot less money, the color pulls a bit more blue though.

  1. This is stunning! I’m having an internal dialogue with myself to stop buying any more highlighters… it’s a challenge when I see all these beautiful ones. 😛 The MAC Extra Dimension formula is so wonderful, I was so happy they made them permanent!
