Review: MAC MSF in 'Soft and Gentle'

To start 2013 off on a high I'm going to do my first review on a product that I adore. I received this a few months ago from my Mum after she had been in America and had been on a trip to Sephora, just after I bought 'Lightscapade'. This highlighter had been on my wishlist for so long and I wasn't disappointed when I finally got my hands on it.

The colour in the pan is true to how it looks on the skin - a gorgeous peachy bronze sheen that looks lovely sweeped along the tops of cheek bones and under brow bones. I think it will come into its own in the summer when paired with a tan but it also works with other seasons to bring a glow to my not so bronzed winter skin, although paler skin tones will have to be careful when applying this. This looks lovely both in the day or evening, but unlike Lightscapade it is much easier to over do it as the metallic frost is much more pronounced so doesn't need to be built up as much, so use with a light hand. As with the other MSFs, Soft and Gentle is finely milled and easy to blend into your skin without any fall out. I know this will last me a really long time as I've been using it every day for the last month and it looks like it hasn't been touched.

A definite must have for your beauty drawer and a new firm favourite - MAC MSFs really do live up to the hype for me. Have you tried this highlighter before? What are your favourite highlighters and MAC products? xxx


  1. I got this for Christmas and loving it! will look so good in summer :) x

  2. This looks lovely, I think I might be a bit too pale for it though :( I've never tried an MSF from MAC! xx

    1. You could get away with a sheer wash of it I think! Maybe Lightscapade would be more your thing? They are so lovely I really recommend you check them out xx

  3. Oooh I have heard so many good things about this!
