Ever since I’ve seen them, I wanted at least one MSF in my stash. I’d have never cared for it before but being a blogger has really changed my outlook. I don’t binge buy products but I have some special products which may/may not be in my regular rolling but are with me like a proverbial Kanjeevaram saree (excuse the metaphor)

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in ‘Soft and Gentle’ is a compact powder highlighter with a frosty metallic finish. MAC describes it as a ‘gilded peach bronze’ colour, which is really true to form but I also spot a hint of ‘champagne’ there.

Cost : $30

I first saw Elessa Jade of Pursebuzz wearing it in a panel 2yrs back and she looked so lovely with minimal makeup and  a lovely warm bronzy look that I just HAD to ask her. She said she was pressed on time so skipped everything and was just wearing this super awesome thing called “soft n gentle” . I saw it on a MAC display later on but the shimmer and the price tag kept me away from it *sob sob*.  It wasn’t until recently that I just gave in and finally bought my own and everyday I look at it like a prized heirloom – one day I’m going to give a pack of SnG to my child (I’m damn sure I will have a baby girl some day).

So, this is a beautiful warm-toned highlighter which initially I thought only warm skinned beauties would like but I’ve seen people of every color and undertone rock this baby(yeah, girls & boys!). It has overall peach shimmer with bronze veining. The beauty of these MSFs is in the veining. no two MSFs are exactly the same so a lot of times, people’s opinions are mixed. I use it mostly to highlight my upper cheeks and inner tear duct but also sometimes as an eyeshadow. I mostly do my makeup in a hurry so I usually get products that are multi-use. It gives a perfect amount of glow and I also use it to diffuse out excess/dark blush. I have used it with a matte bronzer so many times. I apply it with my finger or a large shadow brush and it blends beautifully on me. Even though it’s all shimmer, it doesn’t not make my pores look hideous.

In one sentence : I love it!!!  I’ve used it HERE too!
