Soft Gentle

I know I am late to the party but I wanted to share my thoughts and review on MAC Soft and Gentle Mineralized Skin Finish.

I will be the first to admit that MAC was never my first makeup brand choice originally – I like the packaging and I liked the idea but I hadn’t quite found the product that made me want to try anything else. Till this product.

Soft Gentle 1

The MAC Mineralized Skin finish in Soft & Gentle is a cult classic. It has been majorly hyped for so many year and I was always hesitant to give in to the hype, like most products to be honest.

It is a baked highlighter in a peachy champagne tone and I think it would suit most skin tones apart from very very fair and has a lovely sheen rather than a glittery chunky mess.

I would describe my skin as NW15 so if you’re lighter than that then this might be a smidge too dark for you.

Soft Gentle 2

The packaging is not my favourite MAC packaging I have used but it’s practical. The closure is magnetic rather than a clip or snap shut.

I use this on the tops of my ‘cheek bones’ (I don’t really have any but if I did, where they might be), the tip of my nose and on my cupids bow and it always looks flawless.

Soft Gentle 3

All in all I have been completely blown away by this product and I am so glad I did eventually give in to the hype (5 years too late). It definitely spurred me on to buy more from MAC and so far I am trying more and more things that I really enjoy.

I would definitely put this down as a product from MAC you should try at least once, even if you weren’t a fan of MAC. Soft & Gentle really is a smooth entry level product that will leave you wanting more.

Have you tried this product? Fancy getting your hands on Soft & Gentle?
