MAC Extra Dimension Blush in Hushed Tone | Review

MAC Extra Dimension Blush Hushed Tone

Among MAC’s blushes, the Extra Dimension ones has always been my absolute favorite. They used to be only limited edition items in selected collections and I have always wished before that MAC will make them permanent eventually. And they did make them permanent. Last summer, MAC finally released a whole new variety of Extra Dimension blushes as a part of their permanent range. I’m slowly rediscovering them with the shade Hushed Tone.

A modern hybrid blush — combining the smoothness of a cream, blendability of a liquid and finish of a powder with long-wearing colour and prismatic reflections. From soft pastels to corals and plums, this blush delivers polished textures that reflect light and leave a smooth second-skin finish.

Hushed Tone is described as a neutralized pink peach. It seems darker on the pan than how it is actually described. For me, it looks like a peachy orange with a lot of fine micro-shimmers. They’re not detectable with my swatch below but when the light hits it, they give off a very beautiful glow that doesn’t look overly frosty or metallic.

The formula of this blush is just as similar as how I remembered them from before. They’re soft and incredibly pigmented, blending easily and smoothly on the cheeks. They’re easy to build up with a few more layers but just a light touch of my brush against the pan is enough to catch the color and deposit it on my light skin. It lasts for quite a long time on me too.

And because of the glow I mentioned earlier, I finally figured out the reason why I love the ED blushes so much. The first time I used them back then, I wasn’t into any highlighters as much as I am right now. I think the glow these blushes give me is somewhat akin to a subtle highlight.

I am highly giving them my approval guys, TWO THUMBS UP! I can’t wait to get my hands on the rest of the shades. But not too soon. They are permanent items so I can wait for a while before purchasing another one.

Each ED Blush retails for $29 and… I don’t remember how much it costs here in the Philippines. The price in the box is scratched off and they don’t post the prices on the MAC Cosmetics PH website. I do know it is more than Php 1,000.

Who else is in love with the Extra Dimension blushes, or just the whole Extra Dimension range?
