I have had this wonderful highlighter in my collection for quite some time now - as you can tell by the 'old' style packaging. To be honest, this product was my first ever high end spend and boy can I tell you that it was definitely worth the whole £23 I spent on it!
Soft & Gentle is a beautiful bronzey, champagne shade which gives you that gorgeous shimmery glow that we all love. The shimmer is pretty intense but thank goodness there are no chunky bits of glitter in sight, so you do not need to worry about looking like you have just been attacked by the glitter monster!
I personally feel that this highlighter would suit a wide range of skin tones, making this product even more popular. I especially think that this highlighter would suit me even more when I have a tan as it is quite warm-toned which will compliment a tan beautifully.
I like to apply my highlighter to the highest points of my cheek bones, just for that really subtle glow. When I feel particularly fancy I also like to pop a bit of the highlighter on my forehead, down the bridge of my nose, on my cupid's bow and a tiny little bit on my chin just to give that lovely healthy-looking glow.
I have also tried applying this highlighter as an all-over-lid eye shadow which is simply just stunning! I do this by slightly wetting my eye shadow brush with some Mac Fix Plus Spray and generously picking up some of the highlighter with it and gently smoothing that all over my lid. (If you own this highlighter and you have not tried this, I would 100% recommend you to.)
The consistency is silky smooth and quite thin which makes applying the highlighter quick and simple with no fuss. A small amount most certainly goes a very long way with this little gem and I have been using mine for well over a year now and, as you can see, mine has only just started to flatten from where it was originally domed. I can see that this is going to last me a very long time and if it were to ever run out, I would re-purchase without hesitation.
