MAC Haul & Review of Extra Dimension Blush Cheeky Bits

If you read my previous post about my trip to the Crowne Plaza in Blanchardstown, you will know that I couldn't bypass the shopping centre while there. I needed to replenish my MAC Studio Fix Fluid and one thing led to another!



I picked up my holy grail of foundations the Studio Fix fluid (€32) in NW13. This seems to be a love/hate foundation when I talk to others about it, but thankfully it performs really well for me still. I also love the fact that the shade is perfection for me, which I struggle with when it comes to other brands.

I picked up my first MAC lip pencil (€17.50) in the shade Dervish to go with my new favourite MAC lipstick Plumful! It's really creamy and lasts all day on me, I need to build this up with a few strokes but I'm loving it and it will go with a lot of lipsticks that I already have.

MAC Fix+ travel size (€10) is another repurchase and love the many uses this comes in handy for. From intensifying eyeshadow, giving a dewy complexion, or just to finish off and lock in place my makeup. Always a must for my makeup bag.

I then picked up MAC Extra Dimension Blush in the shade Cheeky Bits, it was expensive at €29.00 but I really love the formula of this. It's described as a hybrid of a cream because of its smoothness, the bendability of a liquid, and a powder finish. That all sounds like magic to me especially with the prismatic reflection to give a luminous finish.



The powder is firm in the pan and has no kick up of product and blends beautifully on the skin. It's a pinky coral shade that really changes with the light. I was worried it would show up the texture on my cheeks because of the milia under my skin as it looked frosty in the pan, but this wasn't the case once applied. It lasted fairly well giving me six hours before fading but that was with a light application. This can be built up for a stronger finish and can be used wet for extra intensity.


I can see myself adding more of these to the collection as they are now part of the permanent collection at MAC.

What do you think, would you be tempted?
