MAC describes it as;
A luxurious velvet-soft powder with high-frost metallic finish. Smoothes on: adds buffed-up highlights to cheeks, brows, anywhere on the body: provides an ultra-deluxe polish to the skin.
If you don't know what highlighters are,
Highlighters are shimmery powder or liquids that give your face that extra glow. I am obsessed with highlighters and can't get enough of them. So, I was reading alot of reviews about this Skinfinish by MAC that makes an amazing highlighter, I decided to get it and I can honestly say I'm not disappointed.
I rarely buy high-end makeup, just because I feel that I can get the same stuff from the more affordable brands. So, why shell out so much money on high-end brands?! But, there are exceptions. Some, products are well worth your money. MAC is an amazing brand. The lipsticks, the foundations and concealers are gorgeous.
Anyways, back to my review.
Soft and Gentle is a gorgeous, soft champagne-gold, very finely milled shimmer powder, which suits almost all skin tones.I can't say enough good things about this product. It is so versatile and I use it virtually everywhere on my face, wherever I want a natural healthy glow.
It's very pigmented. You get ALOT of product and you only need to use very little. This product can actually last you for years, so its worth the bucks. It makes your skin look luminous, glowy and beautiful. You can also use this product for multiple purposes like as an eyeshadow, brow bone highlight etc. You can apply it lightly for a subtle, natural glow or build it up for a glamorous makeup look..

Although, some people find it very shimmery, I don't. I believe it's the way you apply it. If it is blended properly it will look natural.
This Mineralize Skinfinish retails for 155 Sr, and you can find it in any MAC stores.
In my next post, I'll be sharing all the ways in which you can use this product.
What was your first MAC purchase? Leave me a comment, I'd love to know.
