MAC Monday #1 Soft and gentle Mineralize skinfinish

Last week I had one of those days where I had my organising head on, the first job to be tackled was my Make-up collection! To be fair it wasn't in total chaos but I had things in places that they shouldn't be and it was driving me to distraction. Now that everything is in it's rightful place, my mind as well as my bedroom floor is clutter free which has led me to have more idea's for blog posts! (there really is something to be said for feng-shui) 
I knew that I had a fair amount of MAC goodness stashed away, some used on a daily basis, some given very little attention, so now that I know exactly what I have and where it is, as a way to give it all the love that it deserves I came up with the idea for a new series "MAC Monday" what a genius I am! *sarcasm* 

First up is a beloved product of mine the Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and gentle...

This is one of the products that I own from MAC that gets an almost daily outing, it is my go to highlight, MAC describe it as a 'gilded peach bronze' which at first glance I get too, on application however I find it to be a Champagne coloured highlight which looks peachy gold in certain lights.

Gilded goodness!!

Soft and gentle is super finely milled, it also contains an insane amount of glitter so literally the lightest of hand is needed when applying this bad boy, it will make you resemble Edward Cullen on a Summer's day otherwise ;) I usually tap the excess off of the brush before applying this which (thankfully) gets rid of most of the glitter.

One swipe 

I reach for this highlighter more than any other that I own, I find it gives me the perfect, healthy glow, weather I am having a really pale day or I have been hammering the St.moriz/tropez a little bit too hard. It's multi tonal-ness makes it wearable for most skintones, to demonstrate that I tanned up one of my hands and did a bit of a comparison... 

Left- Applied on tanned skin and Right- Applied on pale skin 

So with that I will be off to tan up the rest of my body to match my left hand ;p 

 Which MSF's are your favourites? 



  1. you've inspired me to go dig out soft and gentle now! looks amazing in these photographs x

  2. I also wear this everyday. Love this color, I think it's the best for everyday wear too, such a subtle pretty highlighter.

    I have several more of the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish but I can't remember the names off the top of my head because I always just wear soft and gentle.

  3. I haven't tried any MSF's yet but this one looks gorgeous and I think it'll compliment my skin tone. A nice little review :) xx

  4. I sooo want this but I so cannot buy atm or justify and so on!!!!

    Roll on a few months and the ban can be lifted if I have used enough of what I have loloollo

  5. @Rach Yay! :)

    @KLEE Ooh good! Thanks chick :))

    @Amelia Definitely I hardly touch my other highlighters either! I really wish I had the petticoat MSF though :)

    @Cara It should do hunni let me know what you think if you get it :)

    @Claire Yeah I know the feeling I'm on an unofficial ban at the moment aswell, Vivo cosmetics do similar ones that are really good and really cheap if you live near a Tesco but soft and gentle is a permanent product so at least you know you will be able to get it unlike some of the msf's :)



Comments make me really happy,thanks for taking the time to leave one lovelies! please check back to see my response to any questions :) xxx
