Review | MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Highlighter in Soft & Gentle

I was recently going through my make-up bag which mostly involves me tipping the contents of my 'most-used make-up' make-up bag upside down on my bed and saying "wow, I wondered where that went". Every now and then I like to move a few products from my make-up storage into my make-up bag and visa-versa, just so I get out of my little make-up rut and so I can rediscover some old favourites. Which is where I re-discovered this beauty, the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Highlighter in Soft & Gentle.

About the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Highlighter in Soft & Gentle:
"A luxurious, slow-baked, velvety soft, domed face powder with a radiant finish. Strategically buff on to add highlights to the high points of the face, or blend all over for a sheer luminous polish to the skin."

The MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Highlighter in Soft & Gentle is a beautiful peachy bronze shade with golden tones running throughout. I would describe it as a very natural highlighter, perhaps the most natural highlighter I own. It is just like its name suggests - it is soft and gentle. It is the perfect highlighter for 'no make-up' make-up. It isn't too shimmery or in your face, instead it gives a very natural glow to the face and looks lovely on the cheekbones.

Soft & Gentle is very easy to apply and blends lovely on the face. One dip of a brush is enough but I like to build the highlight up a little, just to make it more obvious rather than subtle. The highlighter gives a lovely radiant glow to the face which isn't too shimmery or glittery, nor does it have big chunks of glitter in it. I think if you were just starting to use highlighters and were a little unsure which products to try first, this highlighter would definitely be a great place to start.

I know MAC products can appear to be quite pricey but actually I think they are great value for money. All of the MAC products I have tried have lasted me for so long and this Mineralize Skinfinish Highlighter is guaranteed to last you a very, very long time. Soft & Gentle is a very pretty, subtle, peachy highlighter which has golden tones running throughout. It really perks up the skin and gives a very subtle, natural glow. You can easily build the highlighter up to make the shade more intense but overall, it is a really nice highlighter, one which should definitely be swatched next time you are passing a MAC counter!
