MAC Mineralize Skinfinish, Soft and Gentle

Sunday, June 23, 2013


I love the bronzed siren look for the summer season and after trying the Benefit Watts Up highlighter I said for my next highlighter purchase I would either try one of the Benefit liquids (moon beam or sun beam) or the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish.

During my recent hols to Mexico I came across a MAC store so I thought I would see if I could recreate the summer ‘bronze’ look with the purchase of  Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle.



The colour is lovely and gives a very subtle shimmer. I love that the powder is easy to apply with a brush or even with finger tips and is better for controlling the build up of colour as apposed to the cream stick which is quite thick.

I found this product quite reasonably priced at £21.50  especially as it does come in quite a large size so it should last for a while!

I can see why some people would prefer the creams such as Benefit Watts Up over the MAC mineralize powder but for me MAC powder would be my preferred choice, simply because of its buildability even though it may mean more reapplying! Maybe it is because I’m not used to using a highlighter. I might have to work my way up to the creams and liquid versions so for now I think I will stick with the subtler versions ; )
I would definitely re-buy this product although I think it may be a little too subtle for some people.

  2. I much prefer powder highlighters because I think they're more convenient. Soft and Gentle has been on my "to buy" list for quite some time!

  3. It looks like a great highlighter..my problem sometimes with powder highlighter is that the glitters particles are too big and too evident on your face but this looks very compact and smooth :)
