Review: MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle


I decided it was time for me to venture out and try a new highlighter,  I picked up MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft & Gentle as I had heard some good things about the product.


I am one of those girls who LOVES themselves a good highlight and do go a little over the top sometimes and end up looking like a disco ball…. oops hehe.

I love the packaging of MAC products – Black with silver writing.  I think its simple yet sophisticated.  I also love the window compact so you are able to see the gorgeous highlighter.

It cost me £24 and contains 10g of product and it can be found here and bought *here*!😘

When I first swatched the highlighter I knew it was the beginning of a beautiful friendship😉 haha.  The product is extremely pigmented so a little goes a long way!


The colour is described as a “gilded peach bronze” and is a warm tone.  There is also a champagne colour mixed through.  The highlighter comes off as a frosted sheen on the skin (super stunning). 

This highlighter gives your skin such a healthy glow and really does look amazing on, just make sure to apply with a light hand as I mentioned before its extremely pigmented! It also goes with any makeup look you create and is suited for all skin tones.✨

I love the champagne undertone in this product. A lot of highlighters on the market are white or pink. These shades tend to show up more fake on your skin. However, this champagne shade is ideal for a light glow and perfect if your skin is sun-kissed.

There is no mirror coming with this compact. The compact does, however, have a removable centre to make it easy for an application if you are a makeup artist or in a hurry.

Beauty Tip: There is no need to keep opening and closing the compact. Simply remove the plastic centre to use straight away.

I cant believe I didn’t have this product in my collection until now?! This is definitely my new holy grail highlighter!

Simply brush highlighter over areas you wish to highlight. Areas such as cheekbones, brow bones, nose and cupid’s bow can all be highlighted with this product. You can use this product with makeup or without. Strategically buff on to add highlights to the high points of the face, or blend all over for a sheer luminous polish to the skin.


If you don’t already own this highlighter then girl you are missing out! Get onto it now! 👅
