However, I did manage to get over myself and my pathetic ways because I haven't gone a day without wearing this. Well at least on the days when I do actually wear make-up which is probably about 4 days out of 7. I purchased this back in late Jan/early Feb, it featured in my haul post here. It's now almost May and as mentioned, I wear this all the time. I have also used it on every client I have had since so you'd expect it to have a nice little dent from over-use, but it hasn't. Its still very much in tact so for the cost of just under 30euro, you will get your moneys worth, and more.
The reason it's lasted so long is because you only need the tiniest amount of this product. Just dab/sweep your brush in gently and you have enough to highlight your cheekbones and cupids bow, which is what I use it for. MAC state that you can use this an an overall powder for a dewy effect but I personally wouldn't because as you will see in the picture below, it gives a serious amount of shine. Putting that all over my face would be a disaster considering I have oily/shiny skin already. Although, it would look quite nice with an even tinier* amount than before brushed down the center of your nose and forehead for a subtle glow.
MAC Soft and Gentle can be purchased at any MAC counter/website or over at Brown Thomas for 29.50euro
*Warning, you may resemble a disco ball so please for the love of God only use a tiny amount.
