MAC Superb Extra Dimension Skinfinish + Morning Rose Lipstick from the MAC Magnetic Nude Collection Swatches/Review


This collection has stolen my heart and I’ve already placed yet another order (so lucky it was available!) for one of the Extra Dimension blushes in Autoerotique, so stay tuned for that one! For now, you can always refer to my swatches/review for Carnal Instinct, a gorgeous brick red with golden frost. So, I picked up the Superb Extra Dimension Skinfinish because I’m in love with rose golds on my skintone AND I also grabbed Morning Rose lipstick (yes, thanks to my MAC girls for these again!).  Superb is STILL AVAILABLE (at the moment of this review) on the MAC site, but hurry – this collection is LIMITED EDITION. Sorry, I just have a THING with LIMITED EDITIONS.


Let’s start with Superb. The name says it all – it’s just Superb epitomized. It’s a sheer (at first swipe) rose gold skinfinish to give you an amazing glow on your skin. You can build it up if you prefer, but I did just a few slight swipes to get it to highlight wherever I needed. I highlight my browbone, cupid’s bow (area above lip) and above my blush (I am wearing Milani Rose Powder Blush in Flora Passion. This combination would be great on Valentine’s Day, as well. Very glowy and flirty!



And, then there’s Morning Rose, a cremesheen, that sparkles. It’s unbelievably beautiful. I thought MANY times to skip it, but am really glad I didn’t. It’s great for giving your face an effortless look. For me, cremesheens are moisturizing, and this was no exception, it felt much like a lip balm and this is what my lips need in the Winter.


And, quickly before we take a look at my face look – here are the swatches on my arm.



What do you think? Will you be grabbing Superb before it sells out for good?


Purchased by me. All opinions are honest and my own.
