MAC Mineralized Skinfinish Soft and Gentle Review

I've been wanting to get this particular product from MAC ever since I first bought my MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural. With the natural as my everyday powder that can provide sheer cover that I sometimes use alone or as a setting powder, I wanted to try the Skinfinish that acts as a highlight. I'm almost hitting pan on the browbone eyeshadow of the Wet n Wild Trio, Walking on Eggshells which I've been using as an everyday face highlighter so I guess it's time to invest on a new one. I've mentioned buying this product in my recent haul.

This SF retails for $28 and though it's a bit pricey but this 10 gram product will go a really long way when you use this as a highlighter. I've been using my MSF Natural almost everyday for 8 months now and it still hasn't even reached pan. 

Soft and Gentle is peach with a hint of pink with gold shimmers in it. It is so pretty that it gives you such a wonderful, healthy glow. The texture is smooth and it is very pigmented. Very little goes a long way with this particular product because it's very shimmery so be wary.  

Before writing this review I actually read and watched some reviews on this product and most said that they didn't like this purely because of the shimmer. You can always work with the shimmer and not go overboard when using it. I love to use my Sigma F40 Bunny brush to apply this. I think this is perfect for a healthy glowing look especially that it is winter now and I really like how it looks on me. I must admit that there are a lot of drugstore dupes for this one but I like having this particular product. I'm not sure if I would repurchase this though as this would probably last me for a really long time and I also like trying other products so I might end up buying other highlighters. I'm already eyeing some products. :)

  2. I am in love with your blog. :)

  3. Strangely as a recovering MAC addict, I still haven't tried their MSFs! I prefer NARS Multiples for highlighting but I should really experiment with some others.
