MAC Superb Extra Dimension Skinfinish and Comparisons

Superb is one of three skinfinishes that recently released with the MAC In Extra Dimension Collection.
When I saw photos of Superb, my first thought was Estee Lauder Illuminating Powder Gelee in Modern Mercury which sold out before I could get my hands on one.
Another similar product that came to my mind was Laura Mercier Rose Rendezvous Illuminator reviewed here.

Lets compare...

Rose Rendezvous and Superb look very similar in the pan, It's quite difficult to tell the difference.
When applied to my skin, it looks the same... the only way I could tell a difference is when I swatched both products heavily on my arm. I noticed Rose Rendezvous is a bit more pink while Superb has more beige/bronze tones to it.

I thought I'd photograph Superb next to Guerlain Cruel Gardenia since they both kind of belong under the same category.
It's quite obvious that Cruel Gardenia is a lot more on the pink side.

Bottom line, I think Superb is a gorgeous highlighting powder.
 If you missed out on Estee Lauder's Modern Mercury, Laura Mercier's Rose Rendezvous or Guerlain Cruel Gardenia, then this would be a great addition to your collection.

The retail price is $29 and it's selling out pretty quickly, so hurry!



Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and I appreciate your comments :)
