Mac MSF - Soft & Gentle


Mac MSF - Soft & Gentle 


Okay, I know this is probably one of the most raved about and reviewed items in the whole entire blogosphere but I just had to post some pretty pictures and give you my two pence worth! It is none other than Mac's MSF in 'Soft and Gentle'. Personally, I see Mac as a high end brand and I am lucky if I can afford to splurge on some products and treat myself, it's not a brand I own a lot from but the few items I own I love, and I also think about them a lot before I buy them. After all, I am a student with a budget! 

Mac's MSF soft and gentle retails at a whopping £21.50 in store, however I was lucky enough to encourage my sister to grab this at the airport for me - although I think it was basically the same price after you take into account the conversion rates and charges for using a uk card! The question is, is it actually worth it?  



YES! Oh my gosh, this is possibly the prettiest product I have owned. Not only do you get a whopping 10g of product which will last you a good year or two, it also has several uses! Mac describes this as " A luxurious velvet-soft powder with a high-frost metallic finish" which can be used to highlight cheeks, brows and anywhere else on the body. And it's exactly that. A gorgeous peach/champagne highlight which works well to brighten cheekbones and highlight other areas such as under the brow bone. I've also used this to add a bit of shimmer on top of eyeshadows and as an all-over finish when I fancy a bit of sparkle. Considering the fact that I have never found a highlighter that I've actually got on with, and that hasn't made me look like a complete and utter disco-ball (liquid highlighters, I'm looking at you) then this product is 100% worth the money. It's going to last a very long time, and is just an absolutely beautiful shade! 

Are you a fan of Mac MSF's? Any other skint students out there who just can't help lusting over pretty makeup? I'm off to work now, and then going to stay at my dad's house tonight and then I plan on enjoying a good few days off uni and work - although I do have a lot of uni work to be getting on with. I procrastinate so so much these days. I also have a giveaway running on my blog which you can enter here
