MAC Mineralize Skin Finish – Soft and Gentle review

I have been so in love with my highlighter; Mary-Lou Manizer by The balm for the longest time that I never cared to try any other highlighter…   But with great sadness I hit pan on the Mary-Lou Manizer 😦

So I decided it was time for me to venture out and try a new highlighter,  I picked up MAC mineralize skin finish in soft and gentle as I had heard some good things about the product.

I am one of those girls who LOVES themselves a good highlight and do go a little over the top sometimes and end up looking like a disco ball…. oops hehe. 

I love the packaging of MAC products – Black with silver writing.  I think its simple yet sophisticated.  I also love the window compact so you are able to see the gorgeous highlighter.

It cost me $47 and contains 10g of product 🙂

When I first swatched the highlighter I knew it was the beginning of a beautiful friendship 😉 haha.  The product is extremely pigmented so a little goes a long way! 

The colour is described as a “gilded peach bronze” and is a warm tone.  There is also a champagne colour mixed through.  The highlighter comes off as a frosted sheen on the skin (super stunning). 

This highlighter gives your skin such a healthy glow and really does look amazing on, just make sure to apply with a light hand as I mentioned before its extremely pigmented! It also goes with any makeup look you create and is suited for all skin tones.

I cant believe I didn’t have this product in my collection until now?! I am sorry to say Mary-Lou but you have been replaced… My new holy grail highlighter is now Mac mineralize skin finish; soft and gentle.

If you don’t already own this highlighter then girl you are missing out! Get onto it now 🙂

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you enjoyed this post.

Want that designer look but don’t want to pay the designer price? Well here’s the solution for you! ☺️

 

 

If you like are one of those girls who draw inspiration from those pictures of designer labels worn by celebs and models then your not alone. With my love of fashion I am always faced with the dilemma on whether or not the hefty price tag is worth it, especially if it is for a dress that i am only going to be wearing once or twice. Now you could do what I usually do and find a cheaper alternative or ‘copy’ of the design you like but sometimes they just don’t have the same look as an original piece or lack in quality.

There is a solution to this dilemma and it is as simple as hiring that dress/playsuit instead of spending hundreds of dollars! Hiring designer dresses is becoming more and more popular in recent times and it provides us with a simple solution which can save us hundreds.

 I recently acquired 2 playsuits which were sent to me by the girls at Designer Night  both of which retail for around the $500 dollar mark. To me this price tag is something I could never see myself spending as I have other areas of my life where I also need to focus my earnings (savings and bills) like most people. 

The playsuits I received cost only $80 each to hire which includes the cost of dry cleaning.

For me this is a very reasonable price to pay, and again if your like myself there is no point in paying full price for something that will get worn once or twice then find its way to the back of the wardrobe. 

  

This was my favourite playsuit – Zimmerman Silk Veil Essenence playsuit. It is so stunning! 

 

 This playsuit is different to what I usually go for but I loved it!  The colour and the print was incredible. This is a Camilla brand playsuit in the print “Xanadu”. 

 So if your looking for that something special whether it be for an upcoming birthday or a special date where you really want to stand out in a crowd and impress, I highly recommend hiring an amazing designer brand outfit and paying a fraction of the cost.

There are many designer hire websites now but I highly recommen checking out Designer Night as they were so lovely to deal with. 

I hope you have enjoyed this post!

You can dress them up and dress them down. My favourite pair of black jeans at the moment are the Santiago Jean from Factorie.  They are the comfiest jeans ever, you can literally move around and do anything in these jeans. They are almost like jeggings but with better quality denim material.  They RRP $39.95 so extremely affordable, defiantly check them out! ☺️

Sunday fun day- meet Simon ☺️ 

Hey hey! ☺️ 

Everybody meet my boyfriend Simon! I have been with him for nearly 3 years, we live together and have Ceasar who you all meet last week.  He is honestly my rock and I don’t know what I would do without him.  He is super supportive of me and even takes some of my photos for my blog haha. 



Today is Sunday and as its my only day off work Simon took me out for lunch at my favourite cafe/restaurant- Buddah Thai 😍 

As you can tell by the name its Thai food! My ultimate favourite food… Yum! 



I always get pad thai but today decided to get something different and got the hot and spicy noodles with chicken, it was delicious!
