*UPDATE* These MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish Strobe Powders are available now for $33 at NORDSTROM.


MAC Cosmetics will be launching a bunch of new products in the next few months for holiday 2016  including the Nutcracker Sweet Collection which was announced today. But what I currently have my eye on and can’t wait for the launch is the above MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish Strobe Powders which will be launching sometime in October/November.

The MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish Strobe Powders will come in four shades;

  • Double Gleam
  • Show Gold
  • Soft Frost
  • Beaming Blush

Each shade of the above highlighting powders features a duo chrome finish. I do love the formula for MAC’s highlighters so I’m expecting these highlighters to maintain the same standard I’ve come to expect from MAC highlighters.

These MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish strobe powders will be part of the MAC ‘In The Spotlight’ collection which will include various other products including strobe creams.

Extra Dimension Skinfinish is a technical marvel!! It gives you the skin that dreams are made of. What makes it so stunning is the complex slurry of pigments and pearls that reflect and refract light!! What this means is that you get multi dimensional shine due to some pearls reflecting like a mirror, and other refracting like a prism!!

Show Gold – Peach pearl which reflects pink
Beaming Blush – Pink pearl which reflects gold
Double Gleam – Beige pearl which reflects silver
Soft Frost – White pearl which reflects violet

Another tip from @ashley_rudder is that if you use Prep + Prime Fix + or Mineralized Charged Water Spray, you can get a more intense glow.

While Soft Frost which reflects violets has captured my attention, honestly if I could get all of them, I would be in heaven. These will be permanent.
