Hey there pretty girls!
Luminous – Peachy – Golden – Soft – Shimmering – Glowing – Gentle – Highlight. This is what I see when I think of the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Soft and Gentle and this is the perfect short description of this blush.
First things first: I actually like the new packaging of this product way more than the old one, it looks much more sleek and sophisticated.
Now to the actual color: MAC describes this product as
“A luxurious velvet-soft powder with high-frost metallic finish. Smoothes on: adding buffed-up highlights to cheeks and brows, or an overall ultra-deluxe polish to the face”
and the color itself is described as “glided peach bronze”.
It’s a warm-toned, champagne beige with a frosted sheen but since it is a very light skin tone I think it would work best for light to medium skin tones, where you can use it as a blush, highlighter or all over the face.
What you see in the pictures is ONE good swipe of the product, the color pigmentation is just CRAZY!! It is such a beautiful color, very shimmery and glowy, crazy pigmented and I fell in love with it the second I swatched it for the first time. Although when you swatch it, you could get scared by the color since it is so intense, once you apply it on the skin it gives you that beautiful glow from within and that glowy, young, fresh look we all want.
If you want to know, how you could wear a MSF product, you can find here a great blog post on 5 ways to wear them. I prefer to use it as a highlighter on my cheekbones, on the bridge of my nose, on my cupid’s bow and on my browbone. Sometimes I even use it over a blush, just on the apples of my cheeks, to make them pop and to draw the attention to the center of my face. I don’t like to use it for an all-over-the-face-glow, because I have a rather oily t-zone and I don’t want to emphasize it even more but you could, of course, also sweep it very lightly all over your face to give it that beautiful glow.
Let me know, do you have this product at home? How do you like it? How do you like to use it? Do you have any good tips and tricks with this product?
