MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft and Gentle: Review and Swatch

MAC Mineralize skin finishes in general are a much hyped product. Women all over the globe sing praises of the same. But is "Soft and gentle" as good as its brothers and sisters?
 Keep reading to find out!

Mac Mineralize in Soft and Gentle is the only highlighter I own, and it is the only highlighter I need!

It comes in a large round pot and has a dome shaped appearance like all baked products. It definitely falls on the slightly pricey side, but considering the fact that this is a highlighter, you use very little of it, and it comes in a huge round pot, it's bound to last forever! 
So, might as well pay a good price and get a fab product that will last a long time!

As you can see, it is a beautiful swirling mixture of rose gold, peach and pale gold.

When you swipe your brush through the whole product you get a very beautiful luminous pale gold color.
The best part about this product is that it looks stunning on women of any skin color! I have seen girls of very pale white skin rock this as an all over glow, and girls with medium skin color like mine, and ever darker women can rock this shade without worrying too much about the application!

A concentrated swipe on the back of my hand looks like this, but obviously, you will be using a fluffy brush to blend it out on the high points of your face when you use it, so you will not get such a concentrated finish on your face.

The glow you can see on my face in these pictures are from the use of MAC Mineralize in Soft and Gentle.
I feel the pictures really do not do justice to the actual glow, since the glow is more 3D :P
 if you know what I mean. 
Also, from the pictures one can gather that, this highlighter goes with any look. You don't necessarily have to reserve it for any particular look alone. You can even incorporate it into your daily routine, if used with a light hand. 
After all, you don't want to come across as a shimmer ball at your work place, glowing goddess would be more appropriate. ;) 
And, when girls come and ask you for your secret, you can say, "I drink plenty of water!" :p
Buhuhahahaha. Just kidding ladies. 

The only down side is that, MAC products have the reputation of shattering quite easily. So you have to be very careful when you have one of these. Drop it once, and cry forever!
Although, I have traveled with this compact in multiple occasions, I made sure to pack it tight, and it has survived me for so long.

So, yes, I love MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft and Gentle. I don't think I'll ever buy a highlighter again!
It is available in all MAC stores.
In Kuwait, there are MAC stores in The Avenues Mall, and Marina Mall.


  1. Awesome review! I was wondering if I should buy it or not. Thank you! Quick question. Where do you apply it for best effect and with which brush?

    1. you can apply it right on the high point of your cheeks with a regular blush brush and a light hand. for an extra glow, you can also go over the bridge of your nose, the center of your forehead and chin with the same. I'll make a video on the same soon!
