MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle

Hey Everyone!

You know when you want a product for ages, and ages, and ages and you finally get it and its really disappointing and not worth it? Well this is not one of those situations at all!!

I'm sure by now you'll be aware (by my constant references to it in blog posts and tweets) that I'm head over heels with MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle at the moment. It was a birthday gift from my cousin (here) and I honestly can't believe I have gone so long without having it.

The packaging is very sophisticated and high end- as with all MAC products it comes in a sturdy black plastic case with flecks of silver. The baked powder looks absolutely gorgeous- very marble like. The only problem I have with this product (getting it out of the way quickly) is that its quite messy and the powder gets all over the packaging even when its just sitting on a flat surface all day. I just use my brush to clean up most of it though.

To apply, I use a medium sized fluffy powder brush and sweep and dab it up my cheekbones. A little goes a long way with this rich, almost creamy powder and it blends easily. The gold flecks catch the light beautifully and it gives a lovely glow. It is the most gorgeous highlighter I've used and in my opinion transforms your whole makeup look.

I have been wearing it with my Bourjois Rose D'Or Blush and the two compliment each other beautifully. My cheeks are now the attention grabbers of my makeup!

Although this comes with a heavy price tag, I would highly recommend this as an essential for any makeup lovers collection. It is my new HG cheek product and I don't think any other highlight will ever come close to being as good as it!

Have you tried it? What do you think?
