REVIEW: MAC Soft and Gentle MSF - My Holy Grail Highlighter


I was very kindly gifted this at christmas but it is only now that I have got round to writing out a full review - how disorganised am I?  

This Mineralize Skin Finish, is one of the , if not THE, most hyped Mac products in my opinion which is why I took a risk at buying this with only a finger swatch and not trialling it on my cheeks.

Fortunately my risk payed off and although, at first, I couldn't get this to work on my skin, I have found the perfect way to use this and it is now my holy grail highlighter.

The finely milled powder has small particles of shimmer that gives a beautiful bronze/ highlight to your cheek bones with the smallest amount or that can be built up to give a more intense shine. To do this I use my ELF Bronzing Brush which is a natural haired angled contour brush or I use the RT contour brush as it applies the MSF precisely to your cheeks.

As well as a highlight, I also love using this MSF as an eyeshadow too as I find it doesnt crease but is actually more long lasting and creaseproof than the 5 MAC eyeshadows that I have tried and find hard to work with.

I love this MSF and urge you to try it if you have never ventured into the depths of MAC MSFs before!

Whats your favourite highlighter?
