Both formulae are a hybrid of gel, powder, and water so that you get the blending power of a liquid, but in a compact that’s easy to carry and work with. Both products are very highly pigmented and so are easy to work with and apply. You can use your fingers or a synthetic brush to apply, and they just stick to the skin without any fall-out or flaking.
The difference is that the MAC products seem to be slightly drier, but it doesn’t really impact the product too much. I really liked the Extra Dimension Skinfinishes because they are the perfect highlighters. They just glide on to the skin and you can layer them for high impact highlighting. The Extra Dimension shadows are great too, but the only reason that you would switch to them over regular shadows is that they’re very pigmented.
