Today I will be reviewing MAC’s Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle. I first tried this product when my best friend let me borrow hers. I was instantly in love and just had to buy it!
It is a metallic finish mineral powder which is used for adding a glow to the skin. As a highlighting product it can be used on the face and body. I usually tend to use it for nights out and I highlight my cheekbones and brow bones with it. Personally, as I have oily skin I try to avoid products which add too much glow all over my face (especially in the forehead and nose area), as I spend most my time finding products which will mattify my skin.
This product is £22.00, but for that price you get a very finely milled and pigmented highlighter which lasts an absolute lifetime! I have used it so much over the last nine months, but I’m amazed at how well it has lasted.
MAC describe this Skinfinish shade as a ‘gilded peach bronze’, I have to say I think that it is more of a champagne toned shade with hints of peach running through it. It is a beautiful shade, but for those people who may want a more silvery highlighter this may not be the product for them.
This product is quite shimmery, and therefore if you are after more of a subtle glow, a delicate hand may be needed (but I believe this is only due to how amazingly pigmented the product is!). It adds dimension to my skin and I find it to be the perfect finishing touch when I am after a radiant, glowy finish to my make up look. Although I only use it on my face, I have seen other bloggers say that they use it on their collarbones and down the front of the legs.
To conclude, I absolutely love this product! I personally find it to be quite a glittery, shimmery highlighter, but it does not look over the top as it is so finely milled. It gives a lovely sheen to my skin and whenever I wear it I feel like my skin looks so much more radiant. It could seem quite a pricey product, but the amount of usage you get out of one is amazing due to the fantastic pigment of it.
