This is official description and half of it I barely understand what’s supposed to mean but I am going to make it much simpler – HOLY GRAIL MATERIAL! MUST HAVE! I have to worn you this post is very picture heavy 🙂
I have been in love with Soft and gentle since 2008. That’s the first time I bought it and it lasted me until couple of months ago. So that’s over 4 years. Considering the price, the amount of product and how amazing it is this is probably one of my all time best makeup purchases. This is my second time buying it since it is part of MAC’s permanent range. They better never discontinue this beauty!
Soft and gentle started my addiction towards MAC Mineralize skinfinishes. I loved it so much that I later got many more, mostly limited edition ones. And I use them more than any other face/cheek product.
Soft and gentle is bronzy golden peachy color with a golden sheen. It does have shimmer and it’s not subtle at all. Honestly I do not mind it. More shimmer the better. But I am not sure it is for someone who likes more of a subtle glow, or is light skined with pink undertones. Powder is very smooth and blends easily. I apply it with many different brushes, mostly with MAC or Smashbox fan brushes, MAC 109, 188 or 187 and it works great with all of them. I did not notice that it looks better applied with one than another.
Even though it looks like it only has golden shimmer I tried to capture all the multi colored shimmer in direct sunlight. Click for the larger photo. Love it <3 <3 <3
