This was the first highlighter I've ever bought. I really liked it for a while,thought it was settle and really subtle but after owning Mac Lightscapade and The Balm Mary Lou Manizer I find it so glittery !! I wear it only at night time now, where I went a more intense look but I just don't like the finish for day time anymore.
Hands down, my HG highlighter. i use this literally E v e r y d a y. Beautiful champagne color. Super pigmented. i can apply this lightly to give me a nice everyday gentle glow or use it wet when i go out at night. You are also able to build with this product also. Either way, it looks amazing. And it comes with so much product! if i ever run out, im definitely going to buy again. Worth every penny
Absolutely love Soft & Gentle! I haven't used many highlighters in the past but I'm glad I didn't have to kiss too many frogs to find this prince <3 Such a nice sharp sheen to it. If it's layered, it'll give a sunkissed effect. But for everyday use, just a small amount and you're looking dewy and amazing. continued >>
One of the best products sold at MAC, hands down. This highlighter is a beautiful champagne shimmer with some gold veining in it. I have light to medium skin. This makes me skin look like its glowy and dewy in the most perfect way. It is a bit pricey but the quality and the amount you get is so worth it! If you have light/medium skin you must check this out! I will definitely repurchase.
I got this over the weekend after looking around the Mac counter (I originally went there to get another Dazzleglass in Like Venus so that I will have a backup when I run out of the first one, I liked it so much lol), after they said that they were sold out of the lighter shade like this one. This one looked like a bronzer in the pan, but when I swatched it, it was so beautiful and shimmery, and very sheer. i have very pale skin, so bronzers usually scare me, but this is definately a highlighter and doesn't really bronze you. I applied this to the bridge of my nose and my cheekbones, and it's just beautiful. I know that this will last me for quite some time seeing how big the compact is, but when I do run out, I will definalty be getting this again!!
One of friends introduced the MOST perfect highlighter (this one) I've ever seen, she tried it on me & I fell in loveee. It's much better than the Hard Candy Bronzer in Tiki! I have THAT one, probably thinking about getting me this one though :) haaaa. So people out there! You must try this thing! I'm telling you! YOU will FALL in LOVE! ^-^
P.s. its more pricey than my Hard Candy one, debatinggg! continued >>
this is one of my favorite products I own. I use it as a highlight on my cheekbones, down my nose/ whatever and it's perfect. if only the product was smaller and less expensive! I've owned mine probably for about a year and it's not even halfway gone (i did stop using it for a while at one point to experience with other products). if there was less product and a less expensive price, i could try out other MSF without wasting the one I already own, or I could continue to repurchase it because i feel like overtime it is collecting bacteria and whathaveyou thus I'll need to replace it soon enough anyway...regardless of how much product I still have left :/ 4 1/2 stars for that reason!
I have just used this for the first time today, and after watching a a few tutorials, i put it all over my face - only to notice id turned into a living glitter bomb explosion! (Im like NC15).
So dusted off and started again, and like most people say - its a fabulous cheek highlight, catches the light in all the right places, and very fine, i love it, but NEVER ever all over the face again!
I really like this product but only for cheekbones. I'm one of those who HATES a matte complexion. I love a fresh, dewy complexion all year round, therefore I do not even possess a face powder, but I have numerous highlighters for cheekbones, forehead, nose and chin. I will NEVER be seen without one! I actually bought this product with the intention of using it everywhere, but I quickly realised it is not the best for all-over highlighting because of the shimmer aspect and the noticeable gold glitter. On the cheekbones, this is VERY pretty - it neutralises any strong blusher outlines and gives such a beautiful finish to my blush. Even if the blush I'm wearing has shimmer in - I often use BeneFit Coralista, SugarBomb or Dandelion - this still makes them look even better so I am never without it for this reason. But on other areas of my face, it just doesn't work for me. I much prefer my Bobbi Brown Beige Shimmer Brick (or the Bronze one in the summer) as the shimmer is more finely-milled and is nowhere near as obvious as this is. Lately, I have also discovered Boots No. 7 Vital Enlightening Highlighter Powder, and this is just as impressive as Bobbi Brown, so I am using that on the rest of my face. What I have noticed, however, is that the MSF is starting to lose some of the gold veins the more I use it. I seem to have one side which has all but lost the gold veins and the other side which still has some considerable veining. The colour itself is beautiful - it gives a peachy glow, and I personally prefer it without the gold veins. But for those who want it for the glitter effect, this might be disappointing... Overall though, a great highlighter which is definitely more suited to cheekbones than all-over highlighting.
brought this finally. gotta say i love it more then perfect topping and candle light now. a little goes a long way. it is glittery but then again thats how its meant to be to give you that glowly shiny look, perfect for evening looks nights out etc, will show well.
