MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft and Gentle

Apart from lipsticks, I am a sucker for cheek products. I love trying out new blushers, highlighters and more recently, bronzers. The only sad thing is that it's really hard to find different brands of cheek products here so I'm always rotating between the few that I think is worth trying. This time around I'll be sharing with you guys my thoughts on MAC MSF in Soft and Gentle!

MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft and Gentle

This is probably hands down my favourite powder highlighter! The packaging itself is very compact and straight to the point, as it is with most of MAC's products (Which I love!). I always wanted to try out the other limited edition MSFs that are released by MAC from time to time but its almost impossible to get my hands on them. Luckily this one, along with the other MSF, Gold Deposit is part of their permanent line so you can get this anytime you walk in a MAC store!

Soft and Gentle is a light pink highlighter with specks of gold glitter and is quite shimmery, but nothing too crazy. When applied to the tops of the cheeks it gives this really glowy and dewy finish to the skin. I usually apply this whenever I'm using a matte foundation because sometimes using the foundation alone can make my skin look a little flat and blargh. So I just pop this on and it immediately makes my skin look a lot healthier! It photographs very beautifully as well!

Swatch of MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft and Gentle

 I know that The Body Shop also sells mineralized highlighters and Bronzers but I'm not sure if they have similar shades to this particular one. I do have one of their liquid highlighters and it is super gorgeous as well! Wanted to do a review on it but the one I had was discontinued which is really sad. The MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft and Gentle retails for GBP21.50 which is a tad expensive but I've had it for over a year now and had barely made a dent on it! I'm sure it will last me another good few years at the very least! The closest place I know where you can purchase this is in One Borneo, KK.


  1. wow cool, I never really dare to bring myself wear out any shimmery-type blushes.

  2. Ooo thanks for the review and swatch, looks like something I'd like! The only highlighter I have is Benefit high beam, which I don't like. Good thing I only have a small one that came in a set :P Have you tried theBalm's mary lou manizer? I have my eye on that one.

  3. @ImahAziz me too before this! But now that I've tried this I can never go back to not using em! lol

    @Jacqui I haven't tried the Balm Mary-Lou Manizer and I'm curious to try it out too~ I've heard many good things about it!
