MAC mineralize skinfinish | soft & gentle

At first I wasn't too keen on this product, I'd been intrigued by it after seeing Louise from Sprinkle of Glitter rave about it so much on her YouTube channels. The lovely healthy glow she always had encouraged me to buy it as I wanted to look as glowing as she always did, so I couldn't help but be disappointed when I didn't achieve that & ended up looking like a shimmery glitterball! I stopped using it for ages but over the festive period I gave it another go & ended up absolutely loving it. I've learnt to apply it properly now using a Real Techniques Setting Brush I only use a teeny tiny amount over my cheekbones & brow bones. Originally I was too heavy handed with it & because I'm so pale I had golden peach glittery streaks across my face rather than a nice gentle shimmery glow! It's a really pretty product which I use most days now I know how to use it & definitely gives my a skin a boost, especially when I'm looking extra sleepy! I mainly use this for nights out or special occasions but also use it during the day if my skin needs brightening up. I like to add highlighter to my cheek & brow bones as I think it's the perfect finishing touch to a makeup look!

  1. This has been on my wishlist for ages! I need to buy it asap Xx

  2. I hear so many great things about this! But as you established! I have no idea how to use it! It really does seem like a massive pot to just use on your cheeks and brow bone! It's great to see that you've figured it out! :D

  3. oooh so pretty! i got a gold highlighter in topshop last summer that looks very similar to this actually! i love it! :)

  4. This has always been at the top of my wishlist thanks to Louise! I'm going to buy it once my acne has settled a bit though, because I'm a little bit weary of shimmer at the moment! x
