Review: MAC Soft & Gentle Mineralized Skin Finish

25 Apr

Hello everyone! A highlighter review today and it’s on one of MAC’s best selling item the Soft&Gentle MSF! I’ve had mine for quite some time so it looks a little strange/used but onto the review!

Description: Champagne golden highlighter in a baked mineralize formula.

Review: It has taken me a year to review this product perhaps because I don’t want to tell you all how awesome it is and want to keep it all to myself. But I must let the secret out that this highlighter is extremely amazing on the skin and is awesome. First off the highlighted look that you get with this product is amazing it looks like a subtle sheen on the skin and works well with all skintones. There is a little bit of glitter mixed in the product itself but it is easily wiped off with a clean makeup brush. With the swatch capturing highlighters on camera is a really difficult task but I did my best and that is the resulting shot. As you can tell it will blend easily into the skin and lasting time is 6 hours but this will not look as nice and highlighted around the 5 hour mark. Overall, a great staple and one I would repurchase if I didn’t have an infinite amount of highlighters.

Cost: $34CDN @ Maccosmetics.ca, or at MAC counters @ the Bay, or freestanding stores

Would I recommend this product? I would if you do not have any other highlighters in your makeup stash this works lovely and the glow is just beautiful.

Review: Bonnebell Gel Bronzer in Luminizer

5 Jul

Hello everyone! Summer bronzer time though today’s review is just a highlight but it’s still a bronzy shade.

Review: A gel luminizer adding a golden glow to the skin. This is one of my favourite products to use during the summer as it adds a subtle but tannish sheen to the skin. There are no glitter chunks just fine shimmer to the product. The consistency is really nice it’s not too thick or too watery just a nice cream product which makes blending very easy.  Only a smidgen is needed for this (in the picture I put too much on my hand) and it lasts all day. No scent to report nor any change in texture as I’ve had this for over a year now. Overall, a really nice summer addition to your makeup collection and it just addeds a nice sunny glow to your skin.

Cost: $2-6CDN @ drugstores and Supermarkets

Would I recommend this product? I would it adds a nice subtle glow to the skin with a hint of bronzey glow perfect for the summer!

Review: ELF Natural Radiance Blushers

18 Jun

Hello everyone! The last ELF review for this time around (I will be repurchasing more ELF products and hopefully also order some products from the Studio line next time).

(Glow, Flushed)

Review: As you can tell the blushes are pretty pigmented except Glow which sometimes shows up or sometimes doesn’t show up on my skintone. These blushes are silky smooth as well and they are great blushes with no scent. Glow is a coral color with golden glitters in it (not huge glitter but there is some) and Flushed is a nice raspberry shade with slight glow (silver shimmer is what it looks like) and both shades work great for lighter to darker skintones. It lasts for quite some time I can get about 8 hours if I’m not moving much (office day) and about 5-6 hours if I’m moving about more (exercising). Again packaging is pretty bad it’s a slide out packaging and Glow got stuck on mine which is why it’s all powdery and broken.

Cost: $1.00USD @ eyeslipsface.com

Would I recommend this product? Yes very definately despite the packaging it’s a great product for little cost!
