There are a number of makeup products with holy grail status and for me, the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle has always been one of them. Even back when I first started blogging and watching YouTube videos, Soft & Gentle was the product everyone seemed to be raving about. It may have taken me over 6 years.. but I’ve finally managed to get my hands on my own Soft & Gentle and I couldn’t be more in love with it. I had some vouchers left over from my birthday so I swiftly headed to my nearest MAC counter and picked up this beauty!
As you can see, Soft & Gentle is stunning in the pan. MAC describe it as a “gilded peach bronze” which I do agree with, although I would say that it’s a lot more gold than it is peachy or bronze when it’s swatched and applied to the skin. I think this golden highlighter will be absolutely perfect for the spring and summer months when paired with a tan, although it’s one that I see myself wearing all year round as it gives such a beautiful and natural glow to the skin.
Soft & Gentle has amazing payoff so you really don’t need to add much to your brush, and it also applies like a dream as it’s velvety soft. This highlighter is packed with glitter but don’t let that put you off as you’re definitely not left looking like a disco ball – instead your skin will be left with a beautiful looking sheen that’s still natural and perfect for everyday wear.
While the MAC Mineralize Skinfinishes do come with a hefty price tag of £24.50, I think they’re an investment worth making as you get a lot of product for your money – the 10g pan is huge and I’m sure it’ll last a very long time indeed. Soft & Gentle certainly lived up to the hype for me and it’s now the highlighter I reach for every morning without fail. I’d love to know.. have you given in to the Soft & Gentle hype, and if so, what did you think?
