My beauty wishlist has included MAC's most popular highlighter for the longest time, and I finally added it to my stash recently. I'd put off buying it for so long because I couldn't help but wonder if it was really worth the hefty £23 price tag. That was until I won a £30 gift card in a giveaway - I know I know, it was fate. So obviously I ordered it right away and eagerly awaited it's beautiful little arrival...
If you didn't know, MAC do a range of metallic powders which aim to highlight and add glow to the skin. Soft & Gentle is the most popular of the 5 shades available and is described as a 'gilded peach bronze'. To be honest I'd describe this more of a pearly champagne pink, which is what I like in a highlighter. After looking at the other shades in the range, I think this is the most universal and would suit most skintones, which is probably why it's the most popular. To say it lives up to my expectations is an understatement. It's so unbelievably pigmented which means I literally only need to dab my brush in the pan to get the amount I need to highlight the tops of my cheekbones and anywhere else that tickles my fancy. It can add a glow to the cheekbones, the cupids bow, the browbone, the centre of the nose, the collarbones and heck, even the legs if you wanna go wild. The £23 price tag is most certainly worth it as it will actually last a lifetime and it's certainly the best highlighter I've tried to date.
Have you tried any of MAC's MSFs?
