Soft & Gentle

Monday, May 19, 2014

MAC Soft & Gentle - a highly talked about cheek highlighter that deserves all the hype it receives. I own only two highlighters, Soft & Gentle and NARS Albatross. They're two very different highlighters but I personally really prefer the MAC offering.

This stunning shade delivers a peachy/bronzey/rosy glow to the tops of your cheek bones to really emphasize your cheek bones and make them stand out. I use this product whenever I wear makeup to give me a bit of a glow and sheen since I do tend to wear more mattifying foundations due to my combination skin type. I personally only use this on the tops of my cheek bones but I do know several people use this on the bridge of their nose and their cupids bow.

Although once being used in the pan it can look very glittery but once applied there are no signs of chunky glitter and just a gentle shimmer. This highlighter isn't subtle or natural looking, but it isn't over the top either. I personally (along with thousands of others!) think that it is so perfect and that you can't find a better highlighter!

Since you use such a small amount as your cheek bones are such a small area - this product has lasted me (and you!) AGES. Like I said, I bought it last year and there is hardly a dent and I use it daily. The only real sign of use is the shimmer around the packaging. I tend to apply mine with a small stippling brush for less product or the Real Techniques Contour Brush if I really want to glooooow.

  1. Soft and Gentle seems to be something everyone loves it seems so good i really need to get it!

    1. You really do, Andrew! It's such a beautiful product, I can't imagine using any other highlighter basically haha!

  2. Ah, I forgot this highlighter existed! It was one of the first MAC items I had first wanted, but this product has been less talked about in the past few months that I had even forgot it existed. Doubt I would ever pick this up now though, currently in love with the Balm's Mary Lou!
