MAC Cosmetics Magic of the Night Oh, Darling! In Extra Dimension Skinfinish review

Probably the most anticipated product from MAC Cosmetic’s Magic of the Night collection is the Oh, Darling! In Extra Dimension Skinfinish ($38.50 CAD). Why all the fuss? It has been said it’s a near perfect dupe for the ever-illusive Whisper of Gilt highlighter.

Update: Oh, Darling! has returned as of April 2017. Get it here.

“A liquid-powder highlighter that gives a luminous, well-defined finish.”

Described as a metallic gold, Oh, Darling! has a beautiful MAC insignia imprint. This imprint isn’t as firm/waxy as the Extra Dimension blushes so you don’t have to press your brush down in the powder firmly to apply.

With its royal blue metallic packaging and beautiful reflective finish, I just can’t stop taking pictures of this beauty.

MAC Cosmetics Magic of the Night Oh Darling In Extra Dimension Skinfinish swatch comparison

Although I don’t have Whisper of Gilt to compare it too, I did find it was close to Champagne Pop as far as tone/depth but it leans a lot more yellow/bronze. It is also NOT a subtle highlight. If you wanna get dat glow on, this is for you!

Ugh.. so pretty. One more photo for the road…

MAC Cosmetics Magic of the Night Oh Darling In Extra Dimension Skinfinish on NW15 pale skin
On my pale Nw15 skin, this is pretty magical. It’s like the sun punched me in the face. Although in some lights, the shade is a tiny bit darker than my skintone so be warned fair-skinned ladies (I still love it).

The Oh, Darling In Extra Dimension Skinfinish is currently sold out on MACcosmetics.com but it’s available at The Bay online and will be in stores Thursday October 22.

  • Love the packaging of this, the blue is amazing! Looks so pretty on your skin!

  • God that’s stunning. I have Whisper of Gilt so I’ll be passing on it, but damn… still gorgeous. And nice to hear it’s not as firm.

  • It is gorgeous!! Close enough to champagne pop that I will skip but it’s beautiful on you ☺️

    • Yes and no. The shade is close ish, but Champagne has a bit more peach to it. Also the MAC version is more glitter sparkle less shimmer.

      • I’m trying to convince myself I don’t need it! Lol

  • “It’s like the sun punched me in the face.” By far the best line I’ve ever read.

    Hope you do a review of Evening Rendezvous — I’m curious how it compares to Bite’s LLLR#10.

    • I’ll be doing my review later tonight. So far I have comparison swatches to 4 other MAC lipsticks but I can add in LLLR 10 for you too!

      • Sara Kahn Troster

        Thank you!

        • Here you go! It’s really really close!

          • Sara Kahn Troster

            Thank you! It is really close. I love the Bite lipstick, but also have Barberry, which is very close — I don’t need a third one. At least, that’s what I’ll keep telling myself — the packaging is so pretty, though.

  • Sooooo pretty! It’s got even more glowy goodness than Champagne Pop!

  • Jayne

    Oh VERY pretty! That royal blue packaging would have be swooning too!
