My Faves Part 2: MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Powder in Soft & Gentle

It’s that time of the week again for me to share some of my all-time favourite products with you. If you missed the first ‘My Faves’ post you may not know that this post is all about honouring the products that I love, and aren’t necessarily new to the market. You can catch last week’s post on my Eve Lom Rescue Mask here.

But for today I’m talking all about MAC’s Mineralize Skin Finish Powder in Soft & Gentle. Some of you may be familiar with it, some of you may not, but if you’re not then I’d definitely recommend trying this one out.

Powder shimmer highlighters with excellent pigmentation and staying power are hard to come across I’ve found, which is probably the reason I keep coming back to this little gem. The colour and pigmentation of this powder are excellent, and it gives you a lovely soft shimmer glow without making you look shiny.

The Soft & Gentle shade has an almost golden undertone to it, and as I have olive skin, it is the perfect accompaniment for my makeup.

I don’t always wear it for my everyday makeup, but you’ll never see me leaving the house without this of an evening. Today my skin is tired looking and dehydrated from a weekend of wedding partying, so on days like this, I find a good highlighter really helps to lift the skin and give it a nice glow. Of course there are lots of great highlighters out there, but from a powder perspective, this is without a doubt one of my favourites.


At €31 it’s not the cheapest powder highlighter on the market, but as the pigmentation is so good, you really only need a small amount and therefore it lasts for ages. The fact that it’s mineral too means it’s great for your skin which is always a bonus.

Have you got a favourite highlighter powder or have you tried this one? If so then let me know, it’s all about sharing the beauty love ladies!
