MAC Oh, Darling Review and Swatches

Last weekend we saw the first round of releases from the MAC Holiday Collection for 2015 called Magic of the Night. 

There was one item that hands down was the star of that release and it has to be the Oh, Darling Extra Dimension Skinfinish.

It is so gorgeous that you can't even use the word gorgeous to describe it. There has to be a better word.

It is the goddess of all highlighters.

It is described as a metallic gold. Even that description seems flat.

It should say something like an explosion of gold drenched greatness.

It truly is a sight to behold.

I love how when you photograph it in the light you get the blue reflection from the packaging.

Without flash it can appear almost like a bronze, but with flash lookout! It is a stunning gold.

I love it so much that I took so many pictures of it in an attempt to capture its greatness, which I have to say was hard to do.

The picture below is swatched in direct sunlight.

This one is in natural lighting.

and one more with my Starbucks Crown Tumbler.

See what I mean when I say that it is hard to capture its stunning beauty?

You can definitely tell from all of the swatches that the color is saturated.

It retails for $33 and is currently sold out everywhere.

It was available at MAC online, Macy's, Nordstrom, and Dillard's.

You may still be able to track one down in MAC stores (though it might be highly doubtful, but not impossible).

The only other place you can currently get your hands on it is on eBay and the prices are highly inflated with them ranging from $57 to $250.00.

If you weren't able to get it when it was released and you really have your heart set on it, I would recommend stalking the websites above.

It is a limited edition holiday item, but there have been times when items like this have been restocked.

I wore it last night for about 8 hours and I could still see it on my face when I got ready to remove my makeup.

It is pigmented and long lasting as well as beautiful.

It gives a nice golden glow to the skin.

Do you own the MAC Oh, Darling Extra Dimension Skinfinish? What are your thoughts on it?
