Review | MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft N Gentle

Highlighters are the one makeup product that I have never really dabbled in before. I used to use a dupe for Benefits High Beam a few years ago, but I thought it was never really a necessity; I have oily skin, but the sweaty Betty look is not one I am particularly drawn to, but then again neither is the shimmering disco-ball-face look. But last year, after reading countless rave reviews of this Mineralize Skinfinish, I decided to bite the bullet and purchase whilst on holiday in Florida. I love MAC face products, and Mineralize Skinfinish Naturals and Blushes are staples in my every day routine.

I apply this to my cheek bones with my Real Techniques Setting Brush and love the natural gold/peachy glow that is added to my complexion. I find that it adds something a little extra to my makeup and really completes it. I don't wear it every day as I think it could be a little to heavy for when I want light makeup, but I love wearing it on weekends and in the evenings.
MSF last for absolutely ages, I've had my MSFN since last February, and whilst it is nearly gone and in desperate need of a repurchase, it is still being used- that's the sign of a good product!
Pigmentation is incredible, and it transfers exactly how it looks in the pan onto the skin. And come on, any lady who is a sucker for pretty, sparkly things, surely cant resist this, its simply stunning!
I defiantly want to branch out and add more MSF to my collection, but for now; Soft N Gentle is the only one for me right now! What are your thoughts? Have you tried Soft N Gentle?


  1. The shade looks gorgeous, I can see that it'll suit most skintones, xoxo.

  2. It looks like a gorgeous colour, I am so tempted to get this now. Hmmm! I am a new follower :D - Would love for you to check my blog out when you have a minute x

  3. This is so pretty! I've always wanted to try out a MSF because I see them constantly mentioned on blogs and they always look so amazing :) x
