Beauty - How to Fake a Healthy Glow5:00:00 pm
Highlighter was something I wasn't even aware of before I started blogging so Mac Mineralise Skin Finish Soft and Gentle was definitely a case of 'The Blogger Made Me Buy It', it seems to be something many a blogger uses regularly. I purchased this way back in September 2012 when I had my first Mac make up application, thankfully purchasing this was a massive positive from the negative experience.
Protected by classic Mac packaging this champagne highlight is a delight to have in my make up bag, it's perfect for carrying around in my handbag, until recently it has never given me any grief regarding security due to the click close seal. I say until recently, this will be two years old in September and the click close has unfortunately given up ghost so now my beloved Soft and Gentle stays at home when I'm out and about.
The velvet soft, blendable formula makes this very easy to use and work with, this is proven by the fact that I use this every single day. Its one of those products that I don't really have to put much thought into application, I just buff into my cheek bones, brow bone, and centre of my face, anywhere that the light would naturally hit. If I'm going out somewhere special and want to make more of an effort with contouring I also add this to my cupids bow and inner corner of the eye and to my collar bones to add a bit of interest to the area. The name 'Soft and Gentle' gives the impression that this mineralise skin finish would be similar in texture to the setting powders of the same line but the product itself is actually slightly finer milled ensuring just the right amount of product is picked up by your favourite highlighting brush.
I love how this makes it so simple to achieve healthy looking complexion in seconds, with it making my quest of how to contour a winning battle I truly believe this is worth all the hype it gets. I have been using this on my skin every time I apply make up, to ensure that glow, for nearly eighteen months now and as you can see in the photographs there is still mountains of product left, making the £22.00 price tag slightly more justifiable. I say slightly as this is still a lot of money to spend on one product for your skin so I may try and get my hands on, the similar and more affordable, Prestige Cosmetics Mineral Bronzing Powder.
Soft and Gentle I commend you for being one of my favourite Mac products I own.
