MAC Whisper of Gilt Extra Dimension Skinfinish

Whisper of Gilt Extra Dimension Skinfinish - MAC/Selfridges - £21.50

Finally! I've been so excited to get my hands on this gorgeous product from MAC; it's from their newest collection Glamour Daze and is described as a liquid-powder highlighter to sculpt and highlight the face. 

First of all the limited edition packaging. I know it's not such a crazy, noticeable difference but it's shiny (yey) meaning it won't get dirty in my make up bag, and really it just adds a hint of luxury to it. This isn't the only luxury to the product- just look at the embossed 3d design, how gorgeous! Kind of makes me hesitant in using it, I don't want to ruin the design!

I decided to purchase this rather than Superb mainly because it's suited more to my paler skin, it just looks more natural and compliments the ranges of blushes I use, however I do think that this would flatter most skin tones. The colour is a soft gold, champagne or even a peachy nude with a lovely shimmer. It isn't sparkly or too flashy on the skin, despite the highly metallic finish in the pan, it just gives a great sheen and highlight to the face. 

In terms of texture, MAC describe this product to have a liquid-powder effect. I find that it goes on so smoothly onto the skin, it's very soft, almost creamy but in powder form? MAC claims that it wears for ten hours which I think is definitely true to a point, I would personally say around eight hours then very slight fading. 

One negative, and there is only one in my opinion, is that this product can emphasize my pores if layered to create a more dramatic highlight of the skin. However this isn't too much of a problem because I feel I much prefer this as a day time highlighter, using just a very light application which has little to no effect on my pores. Overall I'm pretty much in love with this skinfinish, it'll last forever thanks to the mighty 9g worth of product you get, it completely compliments my skin tone and it just feels and looks so luxurious!
