MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in "Soft and Gentle" Swatch + Review

MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in "Soft and Gentle"
Now that I'm back home from my vacation, I'm finally getting around to posting reviews about all the goodies I picked up. Keep your eyes peeled for an upcoming haul. I got a lot of good stuff but the MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in "Soft and Gentle" has me over the moon. It's official--I'm in love. Over the years of blogging I've heard people rave about this product but I never really gave it a second look whenever I was at the MAC counter because this stuff is super expensive! It costs $30 for 10 grams of product but it isn't a waste. This stuff is holy grail material.

But what makes it so special? One of the things that I absolutely love about this product is its opacity. A lot of champagne highlight colors are a bit sheer and require a bit of work to get enough product on the face. Also, this shade blends beautifully. It's a fantastic color for the inner corner or on the brown bone or one the cheeks--it looks fantastic everywhere and anywhere. I know the price seems a bit insane (I don't know what compelled me to purchase it in the first place) but there is enough product to last ages.

Here is a up close look at the products. Isn't it simple gorgeous? It's the most beautiful shimmery nude, champagne color. There is a reason that everyone and their mother raves about this stuff.

This is the product applied rather heavily on the skin. It looks a bit intimidating but when applied to the skin with a light hand, it adds a gorgeous subtle shimmery glow to the face. 

-Beautiful shimmery champagne color
-Versatile (works as an eye shadow and highlighter)
-Lots of product (30 grams)
-Sleek packaging

-Price ($30)

In conclusion, the MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in "Soft and Gentle" is an expensive purchase but if you have a little extra money and are looking to splurge, I can't recommend it enough. It is a blogger favorite for a reason and I know (as much as it would hurt my wallet) that when I run out, I'm going to have to rush out and repurchase. I don't think my makeup routine would be complete without it.
