Oh, MAC, how I love you for you Extra Dimension line! I'll preface my review by saying that I am of highlight ilk, and love to strobe so hard that Mars waves at me. So here's my experience with 2 of these:
Beaming Blush -- HOLY GRAIL of golds!!! It's pink in the pan, breaks gold on the skin. Here's the kicker tho, and the reason I love it. It's a gold that's on the lighter end of so many of the gold toned highlighters out there. It's true gold, none of this champagne business, just that it's a paler version, as opposed to the others on the market that are deep golds and borderline bronzers. It's perfect on my NC20 skin. I bought this in Nov. 2016 when it just released and thought I'd have to wait for spring/summer to really pull it off..nope! Wore it straight thru winter and now into spring. What also makes this holy grail is that it's a true iridescent, it borders on metallic when you spritz it with a setting spray and it's stunning. I get at least 8-10 hours wear easily. No transfer, no fading. LOVE IT.
Show Gold -- Stunning pink! It's rose gold in the pan, but breaks pink on the skin. It's particularly gorgeous because it's a TRUE duo-chrome,and the different tonalities of pink, depending on the lighting and where it hits, is unmatched. Spray it w/ Fix+ or setting spray, and you can achieve the loveliest metallic. And I returned it...OMG it broke my heart to do so, it is such a gorgeous and unique highlight. BUT, it's a glitter bomb. If they'd kept the formulation to just iridescence and metallic without the teenager-y glitter, I'd have kept it. I struggled with the decision because it's perfection in every other way, but I couldn't justify the cost for all that glitter. I have yet to find another pink so striking or so beautiful. Come on Mac, work with me here.
I've been using Mac foundations, Spray and lip wear for a while and thought I'd give this blush a try since I've been satisfied with other MAC products. I have sensitive skin and only tolerates certain makeup brands (Sheishedo and BareMinerals) besides MAC. The blush goes on beautifully and love the look and finish but for some reason this product broke me out.
I was given a sample earlier by a friend which worked beautifully in Soft Frost which seemed to work well and did not see any issues with my skin. Not sure if the product I bought was expired or not stored correctly but I could see the difference in the quality between the two blushes.

For my allergies and sensitive skin, I had to switch to extra dimension skin finish for my highlighter from the MAC mineralize skin finish in soft and gentle which, honestly, is still the best highlighter I have ever used so if you can use either, I would still go with that one. But, if you are like me and need to use the extra dimension skin finish, I love Double Gleam. It is a perfect soft, champagne tending toward silver, highlighter that is not too glittery and not too streaky, and not too gold like another shade I tried was. It is exactly what I needed for my NC20 skin color. I use extra dimension skin finish in double gleam as my daily highlighter. Thanks to MAC for their excellent customer service in helping me find a dupe for Soft and Gentle. I am so happy to have found this!
Great highlighter--i just picked the wrong color. Beaming Blush was too gold on my skin (light NC20 in foundations). I wanted something closer to the Mineralize Soft and Gentle highlighter, but I cannot use that any longer--this Extra Dimension product is allowed for my allergies and super sensitive skin. I am going to try Double Gleam instead as it was recommended as closer to Soft and Gentle which I adored. Stellar customer service with Mac which gave me a refund right away and helped me find a (hopefully) better match for my needs.

I love this product, I usually dodge Mac because it's products are very expensive but this one is worth it. Looks flawless on the nose and cheekbones, I can get a strong and powerful glow from this highlighter because I spray my highlighter brush and the product with my Morphe setting spray. I LOVE IT! I've seen someone say that it irritates their skin, it can be your brush. Have you cleaned it recently? It could not be working with the product because of the you used the brush for another products do they aren't combining good at all. It's possible, if you really don't like this product PLEASE go try the "Ofra Cosmetics: Rodeo drive highlighter" (get the mini if you want something more affordable) ITS. WORTH THE HYPE!

This stuff is so cool. I have a natural tone, and just took a risk on a whim and recent sale to try soft frost. Wow. It's great in light doses as a highlighter with a little something extra. I don't think most people would notice the bit of purple in it until they were right on top of you. I like to use a lot and make my skin look very 'alien'. Love this stuff, and now I want every color.

Applies really nicely. The shimmer isn't too much — just enough. Blends easily.

This highlighting powder is gorgeous. It is one of my favorite highlighters/powders of all time. It imparts a sheet, natural looking glow. It is almost impossible to make this powder look too heavy, cakey, or dry. It is the perfect powder. I love it!!!

I got double-gleam and it is gorgeous. It's beaming but looks smooth and flawless on the skin. Love it!

I have used Becca and IT cosmetics highlighters and they have all fallen flat. Oh not MAC highlighter. I got double gleam and it's amazing. It brightens my face with no glitter. It makes my skin look amazing and bright but not over the top brightness. I would definitely recommend this it's my new go to highlighter.

My daughter 28 & I both have sensitive skin. She has a passion for make-up. We both love MAC & purchased this highlighter. She's in Chicago, I'm in Atlanta, but we both noticed our skin gets blotchy & red, after it's been on. We could not figure out what was going on till we compared notes. Every time we use, we get blotchy & red. This has never happened with MAC before.

This product is the bomb ! Spray some fix plus on your. Face after full makeup application and use the highlighter on top ! It looks amazing

I am obsessed with luminous face powders. This powder is perfect as a light dusting all over the face and elsewhere very light handed with a loose fluffy brush. Double tap the high points and it looks so natural! Especially with a tan. Love it!
Ireland from Kentucky
I think it's beautiful but it's a very glittery highlight rather than a blinding, dewy highlight! It's buildable though and you get a lot of product! I probably won't repurchase but it is nice if you want to give it a try! It lasts all day!
erica from california
I love this highlighter. A lot of powdered highlighters end up enhancing my skin texture, but this one looks so smooth, radiant and natural on me. I think I'll be reaching for this more often!
NanciC73 from Ohio
These highlighters are so lovely!! Not glittery, but not a natural highlighter either! Exudes a perfect balance between brightening and glowy that can give you that lit from within look or full on shiny glam with a heavier/wet application. This shade is especially suited to pale/fair skin babes.
Aloy from USA
I, personally, love this highlighter. It's very smooth and doesn't accentuate texture. Also, very versatile. It can be used very naturally where it's a soft shine applied over a larger area. Or it can be buffed in and built up into a quite intense highlight without wearing down product underneath. However, it is a dry highlighter but I find that helps it buff into being extremely light catching. Be aware there are small amounts of fine glitter in the highlighter. I don't mind it at all, as the glitter is very fine and far between. The shade double gleam is quite yellow but pale enough to suit fair skin tones with warm/yellow undertones. Overall, a very pretty and easy to use highlighter. I use it regularly

This is an amazing color and texture, I love this one so much I got them all. But you don't need them all this looks so close to oh darling.
Beautiful gold shade, and bold perfect for medium skin tones texture is smooth and crisp.
Great summer shade, one of the best shade for tan skin. I love the texture and quality of it.
