You Need These: MAC’s Extra Dimension Blushes – Autoerotique and Pleasure Model

MAC’s Extra Dimension collection came out right after Christmas, and I have to admit, I didn’t pay much attention. Over the years, I have had to force myself not to pay attention as it seemed I was spending loads of money on every Limited Edition collection MAC released. But a week or so ago, something struck a chord with me with this collection. I read reviews, watched vloggers and I suddenly felt compelled to have two blushes from the collection: Autoerotique* and Pleasure Model. I’m glad I caved in because these are amazing. If you are a blush fan, you need to run, and I mean run to your local MAC counter and investigate.

Given it’s been weeks since release, it might be a bit tricky to find these blushes. We all know that Limited Edition often means ‘sold-out’ at many counters. But trust me, these are worth the hunt.

I’ve acquired my share of MAC blushes the last few years but these are different from any MAC blushes I own. I love the look of them in the pan, but more so, I love how these apply. The texture is so smooth and once applied on the cheeks, it gives the most luminous and beautiful glow. They are simply gorgeous.

Autoerotique has coral undertones and is more understated on my skintone. I love that it gives a nice warm glow, especially during the winter.

Pleasure Model has more of a reddish bronze tone and gives a warm flush to the cheeks. To me, this is the most unique of the two blushes. It is pigmented so I try to tap off some of the product before applying on the cheeks. When I wear this, I skip bronzer as this serves a dual purpose on my skintone.

I’ve even layered the two blushes together, creating a third, even more beautiful colour.

Have you tried MAC Extra Dimenson blushes?

    Ooooh I swatched these today but still haven’t made up my mind since there are so many pretty things out there at the moment. You’re right about the textures, they are soooo lovely. My fave is definitely Autoerotique which would be perfect for my skintone. Both look absolutely lovely on you! :)
