Product Rave: MAC Mineralize Skinfinish-Soft And Gentle

Hey Dolls! I hope your day is going fab-TGIF!

As I may have mentioned, I am really into highlighting my face lately. I have become very fond of how highlighters can make your face glow (in a good way-if done right!) like it is something that comes from within. I stopped by MAC the other day and originally wanted to pick up the Mineralize Skinfinish called By Candlelight, which came out with the Warm and Cozy collection. But unfortunately, it was sold out. I guess I jumped late on that bandwagon.

The very nice mua at MAC told me to try Soft And Gentle Mineralize Skinfinish ($27.00) because it was somewhat similar to By Candlelight except for the fact that By Candlelight was a bit warmer. I decided to go for it and purchased Soft And Gentle. I noticed how it was a peachy/bronze warm color with a ton of gold shimmer. like whoa! I love how this product is very finely milled-it is very smooth to the touch.

I applied Soft And Gentle on my cheekbones, temples, bridge of the nose, and tip of my chin. At first when I tried this out I admit, I applied WAY too much! So much that it emphasized the pores on my cheeks-No bueno. And not to mention it was a complete glitter overload. But I managed to get the hang of it, and please believe me when I say a little definitely goes a long way.

Overall, I love how this perks my face up and gives me a nice lit-from within glow, and I would repurchase again-whenever I run out because this stuff is sure to last me a good while. I believe this would look amazing on all skin tones.
