I had a gift card for MAC from my birthday and I spent a long time deliberating over what to spend it on – everything on the MAC website just looks so interesting to me and I want to try it all! But I’m a big highlighter fan, and I decided I wanted to expand my collection to include more different tones and colours of highlight and so I bought the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle.
I think the clue is in the name with this one, it’s a lovely subtle, natural highlight which I think is great just for an everyday look. My staple highlighter has been the Maryloumanizer by The Balm, which is an intense golden, pearly highlight which I absolutely love, but Soft & Gentle is a lot less in your face, and the pinky tones really add to the natural look and add some gentle colour to the face. If you’re new to highlight I also think this is great because it’s very buildable, so you won’t end up looking like a walking glitterball with one sweep of your brush!
I am so impressed with this product, the packaging is lovely too and I’m so excited to keep expanding my MAC collection – I’ve got my eyes on the Give Me Sun bronzer next!
