Product & Colour:
The Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Whisper of Gilt is a is a densely pigmented and smooth product that allows it'self to be blended out with still maintaining a high pearl shine on the skin. The colour of it is a warm gold that doesn't lean too yellow and looks more natural on my pale skin.

Wear: The beauty powder lasts on my skin past the 12+ hours, this version came close by 1 hours.

Packaging: Crackle foil clear coated compact with a mirror in the lid in a rose gold shade, Whisper of Guilt has an embossed raised snowflake in the centre that doesn't compromise the powder quality which I found impressive considering how deep the embossing is compared to other pressed pattern products.

140SES Full Fan Brush is the same as the standard 140S Full Fan Brush with just a shorter handle. I love the texture metal finish as it gives is shimmer without actual glitter being involved and make the handle uncomfortable to hold. This is a large face brush however and is more suited for applying a dusting out powder than applying highlighter strangely on the face. The shape of the brush is a mix of a paddle brush and fan brush that is dense enough to do buffing tapered at the edge to apply a soft sweep to the skin. My only complaint is I can see wanting the brush handle to be a tiny bit longer, but for me with this type of a large brush, I like to hold it at the base of the brush ferrule anyway.

The bag with the fluffy pompom is cute but very simple compared to last years bags so consider it as a bonus rather than something your paying for in this kit.

MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Whisper of Gilt vs MAC Happy Go Dazzingly Face Powder Opalescent, & Laura Geller Baked Gelato Vivid Swirl Illuminator in Gilded Honey.
Daylight & Flash swatches: MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Whisper of Gilt, MAC Happy Go Dazzingly Face Powder Opalescent,  & Laura Geller Baked Gelato Vivid Swirl Illuminator in Gilded Honey
The MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Whisper of Gilt is warmer almost peachier compared to the yellow based MAC Happy Go Dazzingly Face Powder Opalescent. The Laura Geller Baked Gelato Vivid Swirl Illuminator in Gilded Honey is very similar to Whisper of Gilt, but it leans slightly more yellow gold on the skin.

These 3 products look very similar on the skin once you blended them out.


Verdict:
MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Whisper of Gilt is still a favourite shade of the formula of mine. But whether it worth buying it with a face brush makes this a deal to get is up to you. Personally, I didn't see this in store when it purchased MAC Happy Go Dazzingly Face Powder Opalescent, and I would have gone for this MAC Snow Ball Face Bag in Golden over Happy Go Dazzingly because I prefer the Extra Dimension Skinfinish formula in general.
