Great shimmer powder/highlighter. Don't think I'll ever run out.
I read a lot of reviews saying that it has huge chunks of glitter in it, but that is not the case in my opinion... It just looks like finely milled shimmer powder on my face. Maybe other people got a dodgy one? :P Anyway, I think it looks very natural and makes your skin look alive and fresh.
Love this highlighter because it's multi-use. I can use it as an eye shadow, a highlighter around the inner corners of my eyes, on the brow bone, to blend out my blush, and on top of my cheekbones. Many people complain it's too loose and glittery, but I solved that by using a smaller contouring brush and wetting it a tiny bit. It then stays exactly where you want it. On a usual day I swipe this over my blush or bronzer that I've put on my cheeks and then swipe it over my lids. Quick, easy and gives a fantastic natural golden shimmer. Quite pricey at $40, but worth it to me as I use it daily.
I like this highlighter, I think if applied with a very light hand it looks gorgeous and gives the skin a golden glow. I wear it only on the tops of my cheeks, I tried to use it to highlight the other high points of the face, for example the bridge of my nose but I just found it too shimmery to do that. Overall this is a great product, it's a bit if a cult product and I do think it's a tad over priced but it is a gorgeous product and will last a long time.
Love this highlighter, I use it on my cheek bones, on the bridge/tip of my nose, cupids bow, brow bones, and chin. Yes that is alot of highlighter, but I love the glow I receive, highlighter really changes your face and bring a look from cute to red carpet ready glam.
I don't know what to say about this highlighter, actually.... It's not one of my most used highlighter - but not one of the less used either! It's not the best and not the worst, it is what it is. It gives a great glow when applied, but it tend to be quite chunky and glittery. Applied lightly it looks more glittery and sparkly - but applied with for example a strippling brush it looks just glowy and pretty. I feel like I have to dig with my brush to get ALL the pigmentation on to the brush, it's not like it's the most pigmented higlighter in the world... I like it, but I won't repurchase it if I lost it or ran out of it (which I guess never happens....), and it's not the highlighter I first reach at. It's totally ok. Oh, it doesn't stay on all the day by the way. Disappears in about 4-5 hours. And that's not okay, that's bad!
I feel like this is a lot of people's first highlighter. It was my first. I bought it because of all the youtube hype it got, and because of that I thought it was amazing. At first. Then I purchased The Balm's Mary-Lou Manizer. Compared to that, MAC's soft and gentle is very chunky. It's more glittery than shimmery and glowy. After using mary-lou manizer, I can never go back to using soft and gentle. It's so much chunkier. I use it on my eyes sometimes, or when I'm just running errands and I don't care too much how I look. But I never use soft and gentle on a date or when I'm trying to look my best.
If you love this product, and you think it's very finely milled and non-chunky, try The Balm's Mary-Lou Manizer. You will realise that this in fact is chunky and not very finely milled. Then your opinion of this product will change. Probably will use it up, but definitely won't re-purchase.
Normally I love all Mac products and I feel like even when I go to other high end brands, I always come back to Mac. So I bought this as my first highlighter and when she applied it on my face I liked it. The colour was so pretty. But OMG in every picture I have taken with this highlighter on is just DISGRACEFUL LOL I don't know whether its just me or this product. It comes off really WHITE and weird. Its just way too SHIMMERING! I didn't find it flattering to me. Even when i used a little bit, it just doesn't look right. I'm on the look out for other nice highlighters but this highlighter has put me off. One of my products that i regret.
Best product ever!! Literally cudnt live without it!!! It's perfect with minimum makeup, no makeup or night time make up!! Makes skin look so healthy and glowy!! Perfect product!!
This is my favorite highlighter! I use it everyday. it's nice and light feeling on the skin and gives it an amazing glow, no other highlighter has compared to it for me
I love this stuff. It is my HG highlighter. I literally use it everyday, whether its a simple no makeup look or going clubbing kinda night I'm always reaching for my soft and gentle:)
