I remember all the enthusiasm about MAC In Extra Dimension last April (particularly the highlighters). I assume it did well, because this April there will be a new In Extra Dimension Collection (in Belgium it will be available on April 12th)! I want to quickly show you Fiery Impact Blush (RRP in Belgium: 24 euros. Their regular blushes go for 21 euros here, so I assume the RRP in the US will be a bit higher than their regular blushes as well) just so you can get an idea.
The packaging of Fiery Impact is no different from the regular MAC blushes, and it also contains 6 grams of product.
The texture has to be the most special thing about Fiery Impact. I don’t own anything from last year’s In Extra Dimension, but I have tried the Estee Lauder’s Gelee Powder formula, and it feels very similar. Basically, the powder is so extremely fine that it feels more like a gel or cream instead.
MAC Fiery Impact Blush is described as a burnt red bronze. In the pan it looks closer to a brick red, and it has a lot of tiny shimmer. When swatched heavily, it looks like a rosy bronze. Once sheered out, it looks like a brownish rose with a sheen. I don’t really see the shimmer anymore, and that’s a promising sign! I have the impression that it can be blended and built up very easily, but since I haven’t had the opportunity to test drive the blush, I will save my observation for a more detailed post later!
Here is how Fiery Impact swatches on me, both heavily and blended out:
I will test it out and show you how it looks on my cheeks so stay tuned!
