This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Rating System:  Poor, Okay, Average, Good, Excellent

Brand: M.A.C

Color:  Soft and Gentle

Formula:  Good

Staying Power:  Good

Amount of Product:  10g / 0.35 US oz

Price:  $34 USD, $34 CA, €28,00 DE, £ 21.50 UK,

Availability:  Soft and Gentle is part of the permanent range of products.  So you can purchase it from MAC counters and MAC websites worldwide.

Use:  Most people tend to use this particular shade of MSF as a highlight, on the brow bone, inner corners of the eyes, check bones, done the nose, and on the cupids bow.  While I like to use it these ways myself, I have also found that this works nicely on my eyelids on it’s own or layered over other shadows.  I particularly like to apply it over the Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze (On and On Bronze in Europe).  I think this would also be great to mix with blushes as well.

What I liked:  I just adore Soft and Gentle.  You get a substantial amount of product and a little definitely goes a long way.  So this will last you ages.

What I didn’t like:  You do experience some fall out during application.  Also, I find that this tends to shift slightly throughout the day.  Keep in mind though, that this will wear differently on everyone.  I was also surprised that this didn’t have a softer silkier texture.

My two cents:  This has become one of my most used products in my makeup collection.  I would recommend this to just about anyone as I think it would suit a multitude of skin tones.  When the sad day inevitably comes that I use up all of my Soft and Gentle, I can one hundred percent say that I will be running to repurchase it.

Tips:  Always use a gentle hand and build up to achieve the finish you are looking for.  I would also recommend using a smaller duo fiber type brush to allow for more precise application.  I like to use my Real Techniques Setting brush.
