Controversial but i'm not sure that I like it.....

I only have one Mac Mineralize Skinfinish and that is is By Candlelight. Now I know many people love MSFs and By Candlelight seems to be a fairly popular one but I'm not so sure I like it. Maybe I'm applying in wrong or I'm applying too much but I find it fairly bold and it seems to make my foundation wear off quicker. I apply it to the top of my cheekbones and I feel that my skin is far from a candlelight glow. I'm not too sure on the colour, maybe its too peachy toned for me but I'm not a lover.

I know I prefer liquid or cream highlighters such as highbeam/moonbeam by benefit and my Jemma Kidd dewy glow but I do have other powder highlighters that I prefer more than this. I love the idea of MSFs (and love the natural one) but this one put me off them and have yet to purchase any more. Maybe it will look better in summer when my skin is a few shades darker, but for now, I'm not a fan.



  1. I didn't like it either! I'm definitely with you on preferring cream highlighters. I've had my eye on JK dewy glow for a while i might have to check it out :)

  2. i dont any MSFs... they've never really appealed to me. i always felt a little bit like i was missing out on something, so thanks for making me feel a bit better, lol xoxo

  3. @ Imogen, cream highlighters all the way, def check the jemma kidd product out its my favourite highlighter x

    @peachykeen, Glad you agree, they are so hyped up but we know better :o) x
