mac soft and gentle

May I just start off by putting it out there that this is by FAR my favourite highlight and despite it being a luxurious £21.50 it is well worth the money and I will be repurchasing again and again most definitely. I have many friends who share my love for this particular mineralize skin finish who have used it pretty much everyday for the past six months and are yet to hit pan which is a testament to the longevity and worth of this product.

The marbleised swirls of gold, bronze, and peach can seem somewhat daunting in pan form especially if, like me, you're not one to want to over do it with the glitter, however, once applied it is much lighter as the texture is buttery smooth and refined so not to unleash a glitter bomb across your cheeks. It blends into my foundation and powder like a dream leaving my skin looking a lot more luminous and alive so I can't sing its praises enough.

I only used the slightest touch of this product along the tops of my cheekbones, nose, and brow line using my real techniques contour brush and I'm immediately left with the desired glowing skin that I dare say we all desperately seek. For a deeper shimmer just add a bit more product but I wouldn't personally want to go overboard with this and less is more in this case. I think the peachy bronze shade will compliment a vast array of skin tones and it is extremely flattering and therefore become a staple item of mine.
