If you only could own 1 highlight, this is it!
I still remember the first time I bought a highlight that wasn't for my kit, it was MACs Soft and Gentle. I'm very very fair, but tan easy and can get pretty dark, this shade looks great no matter my skin tone. It's truly a Holy Grail. It can be built up for a blinding glow, or softly applied for a lit from within healthy look.. This is a RARE champagne tone that looks lovely on fair skin and is still visable (though I must be honest and if you're very pale, since this isn't an icy silver, it's not gonna be seen from space, but it IS GORGEOUS AND PROBABLY 1 OF THE ONLY IF JOT GUARANTEED THE PRETTIEST CHAMPAGNE HIGHLIGHT FOR PALE SKIN) Because this is made from the same formula as their mineralize skin finishing powder, it doesn't seem to accentuate texture the way alot of other Highlighters do. It also blends into the skin, instead of sitting on it, leaving a beautiful finish. This can be used after powder, or on top of a liquid or cream highlight. You can use a dry brush, or one spritzed with MAC Fix+ (glycerin, distilled water, and rose water)
Final note- this is a must. It's a classic, it's a Holy Grail, and the OG of Highlighters
It's highlighter and not impressed
So I bought a highlighter for the first time and decided to go to MAC as I don't think they do anything disastrous. After speaking to one of the girls there, she showed me soft and gentle and I really liked the way it looked on the back of my had so I bought it. After playing with it for a while now, I do use it but I would like to buy another as I don't feel this product is for me. The colour is beautiful on my NC20 skin, but I just find it glittery and unnatural. I want something with a sheen not sparkle. I actually searched a Bourjouis eyeshadow the other day that I thought would make a beautiful highlight and I am kicking myself for not doing so. Overall: it's okay and serves the purpose but too glittery for me.
jaw dropping glow
I have so many highlighters in my kit, but this my HG product. It gives a flawless glow! I love using Mac MSF on myself and my clients.
I recommend soft and gentle for nc/nw20-nc/nw42 I recommend gold deposit for nc/nw 45-58
Uses: highlight cheekbones/inner corners/browbone/chin/down the nose, can be used wet or dry, can be used for eyeshadow.
I have not been able to find such a beautiful highlight so far. I have tried it on light medium and medium skin tones and it looks amazing. It is the perfect color and the perfect shine to give the beautiful highlight. You will not regret buying this.
I OWN GOLD DEPOSIT AND SOFT AND GENTLE.
SO I OWN 2 IN MY PERSONAL KIT AND I HAVE TO SAY.. BOMB.COM. I LOVE THEM BOTH. THEY WILL LAST AGES. A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY. GREAT FOR A SUMMER GLOW. MUST HAVE IN MY KIT. GOLD DEPOSIT WORKS WITH ALL SKIN TONES AND SOFT AND GENTLE CANT BE USED TO ON LIGHT TO MEDIUM TONES. I LOVE THEM BOTH.
LOVE LOVE LOVE
As an MUA I know about all the most popular highlighters, I have used the highlighter in sin from Urban Decay and High Beam from Benefit because they were the best in my opinion. This blows them WAY out of the water! It has a beautiful color payoff, looks totally natural on my fair skin, and feels weightless! It is the triple threat of highlighters in my opinion. I suggest heading to your nearest MAC counter and having one of the excellently talented women color matching you to the shade that is ideal for you.
Perfect Shade for Fair Skin
I saw a review of this online and loved it! Went straight to my mac store and bought it, so so pretty! It's perfect for highlighting cheekbones and brow bones but be careful on the nose and forehead as you don't want to make yourself look shiny! Matte finishes are better for that :)
Super Pretty Colour!
I had read so many lovely reviews on this highlighter. It was one of my first M.A.C purchases and I'm glad I did! It is such a lovely champagne color, I use it to highlight my brow, inner corner, apples of my cheeks. I've even used it as a eye shadow. I cannot wait to collect more mineralized skinfinishes.
