MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle - review and swatches


"A luxurious velvet-soft powder with high-frost metallic finish. Smoothes on: adds buffed-up highlights to cheeks, brows, anywhere on the body: provides an ultra-deluxe polish to the skin."

This product has been reviewed a thousand times or more... I know... But I have to share my thoughts with you. 
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle is a must have product in everybody's makeup bag. 
Once you start using it, you will know why. I can't imagine my makeup collection and my everyday makeup routine without it now. I use it every day, unless I am having a makeup free day, which doesn't happen very often.


Some might say that it is pricey, but it will last me for a couple of years, so it is worth investing in. 
I will defnitely buy more shades in the future, because I simply love this product. Stereo Rose is next on my wishlist, but it will be hard to get my hands on it.

Soft & Gentle has the most beautiful, frosty metallic shimmer, perfect for adding a gorgeous glow to tired looking skin. I would describe it as a warm champagne shade and I love the way it looks on my face.
The texture is smooth and creamy, applies like a dream and is very easy to blend. 
I use MSF in Soft & Gentle to highlight my cheekbones, under my browbones and in the centre of my nose.  
I also tried it as an eyeshadow and it looks stunning!
It will suit most skintones (from pale to dark olive) and it will add a beautiful glow to your face.
I apply it with a blush brush (cheekbones) or with an eyeshadow brush (browbones).

If you don't have this beaut in you makeup bag yet, I suggest treating yourself asap!
You will love it. I promise!

PS. You will probably get lots of compliments once you start wearing it! ;)

You can buy MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle from MAC, Debenhams, House of Fraser etc.

    1. I've had it for 4 months and use it every single day (a lot of it) and there is hardly a dent in it. Amazing! It will last for years!!! Such great value for money. I would definitely recommend it, you won't regret buying it.
