Review of MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle by maria80
Without having searched too long, to be honest, I think I have found my HG highlighter. I rarely use it on my face, not that there is anything wrong with the product of course, it is just me with my strong features who can hardly tolerate any shimmer on my skin. However, as a highlighter under my brow or in my tear duct, S&G definitely rocks. I used to have Stila Kitten for this purpose, which looks a bit cooler on me, but I noticed that it was more pigmented and therefore harder to correct in case I made a mistake. So I experimented with long forgotten S&G and have stuck with it since. This is exactly the right color for me and I found that it matches both my warm and cool eyeshadows, while in the past I used ricepaper as a highlighter for bronzey/coppery eyeshadows. Plus, when I use only one eyeshadow all over the lid, I discovered that a vertical line of S&G across my lid made with my small finger really brightens up my look and makes even the quickest eye make up look carefully prepared. Overall, I am very happy with this product and I think the way I use it it will last for ever. There may be better highlighters out there, I know, but I thank S&G for being in my make up case and giving me some ideas on how to have a nice, simple eye make up in no time.
