Whisper of Gilt MAC /Extra Dimension Skinfinish/

First for those of you who don’t know – What is MAC Wisper of Gilt? As described by Mac – Extra Dimension Skinfinish which is a liquid-powder highlighter with prismatic reflections that sculpts, highlights and models the face. The cool, creamy near-fluid formula creates a luminous, well-defined finish and wears ten hours.


In other words, its a beautiful most sought after soft gold highlighter with a metallic finish, which you apply on the high points of your face like on high points of you cheek bones, bridge of the nose, cupids bow, under the brow bone & even inner corners of your eyes to get that extra polish and also when light hits those parts of your face it looks incredible, glowing and healthy.

MAC’s ‘Whisper of Gilt’ Skinfinish ($29.00) was initially a part of their Extra Dimension Range that was released in the MAC Glamour Daze Collection for Holiday 2012 made quite a buzz and became the cult favorite in the beauty community. There were two Extra Dimension Skinfinish that were featured in this collection namely – * Whisper of Gilt – Light soft white gold with shimmery sheen * Superb – Soft peachy nude with multidimensional shimmer. Of course, these were sold out very quickly.

Nutcracker Sweet

And now one more time, the ‘almost impossible to get your hands on’, cult classic MAC Whisper of Gilt Extra Dimension Skinfinish has made another return!! It is a part of the Limited edition Holiday 2016 MAC Nutcracker Sweet Collection. And this time I was able to snag it!! Firstly, the whole Nutcracker theme and packaging this holiday collection looks INCREDIBLE! it looks like a perfectly wrapped present with gold embroidery on it, almost too good to open!! The highlighter comes in a gorgeous Face Compact duo, with a Deep Rose blush called Pleasure Model. Both the highlighter & blush are very soft and buttery. I wore it a couple of times and just fell in love with it! It wore well on me for 8 hours. Now I know why, its the, best of the best, crème de la crème highlighter!!

OK Since my romance with WOG is not transitory, I just HAD to get it sooner or later, but you were able to get your hands on Wisper of Gilt, there are other highlighters or even dupes that will give similar results. I don’t know why this is not permanent in their MSF collection, I think MAC should definitely consider making Whisper of Gilt permanent because it so gorgeous and so many people love it!
