MAC’s Mineralize Skinfinish formula is supposed to add “highlight to the face and body” with a “velvety soft” texture and “radiant finish.” Soft & Gentle had semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable coverage that produces primarily shimmer on my skin tone (medium), but on fairer complexions may also add warmth and some color. It doesn’t have a white base, so it should work on most complexions, but it may be a highlighting blush on some and just a highlighter on others. The texture is soft but dusty, and this made it prone to sheering out–I recommend using less and building in layers to better control the placement of the product. This shade lasted for seven and a half hours on me before fading.
