MAC Tres Cheek and Extra Dimension Swatches

Hey Dolls! Today I have a treat for you! The MAC Tres Cheek and In Extra Dimension collections launch in-store next Thursday, April 5th, but I have swatches for you today!

The Tres Cheek collection includes 6 springtime blushes that are super pigmented.



I think all these colors are super pigmented and perfect for the spring/summer. The shades are:

  • Pink Tea - Neutral beige pink (Satin)
  • Lovecloud - Bright mid-tone pink (Satin)
  • Peony Petal - Bright blue pink (Satin)
  • Modern Mandarin - Red-orange (Satin)
  • Immortal Flower - Bright peach (Satin)
  • Full of Joy - Lavender (Frost)

Here are the swatches:

Top: Pink Tea, Modern Mandarin, Immortal Flower
Bottom: Lovecloud, Peony Petal, Full of Joy

Top: Pink Tea, Modern Mandarin, Immortal Flower
Bottom: Lovecloud, Peony Petal, Full of Joy


Top: Pink Tea, Modern Mandarin, Immortal Flower
Bottom: Lovecloud, Peony Petal, Full of Joy


Although the pinks aren't that unique, Modern Mandarin and Full of Joy aren't shades we see frequently so I think they will definitely sell out. My personal favorites are Modern Mandarin, Pink Tea, and Lovecloud. I do want to mention that the Reel Sexy collection also launches on the same day and includes two blushes, Pink Cult and Magenta, which look just ok in the pan, but are beautiful on. Unfortunately, I don't have swatches of those, but if you like blush you have to check those out too! (I almost like those shades better than these!)

The In Extra Dimension collection includes 3 skinfinishes that are multi-use highlight powders. The texture of these is completely different from mineralize skinfinishes. These skinfinishes are are super smooth, almost creamlike, metallic powders with an extremely shimmery finish. The good part is they are not glittery. The collection also includes 12 shadows with a similar texture and finish.

Here are swatches of the 3 skinfinishes:

These skinfinishes are described as liquid-powder highlighters that are supposed to wear 10 hours. I haven't worn them on my skin so I can't vouch for that. These are each 9g and cost $29. A regular mineralize skinfinish (MSF) has 10g and costs the same, so these new ones are pretty on par with the MSFs. Because these are so shimmery, less is more, but I think these new skinfinishes are a fun new multi-purpose product.

Are any of these products on your wish-list?

  2. How exciting!! I am definitely going to get the coral blush (pink tea) now and maybe even the orange one. Not sure what I think about the metallic mineralized skin finishes. Need to play around with it some more.

    1. Pink Tea is beautiful! The metallic skinfinishes are definitely very shimmery....so if you like that finish you will like them.
