2014 has just kicked off and is it possible I already have a new favorite product?
I have been loyal to my MAC's Soft and Gentle highlighter for the past few months, but with the release of the MAC Magnitude collection, and the promise of Extra Dimension highlighters, someone had to take a peek...
Described by MAC as a “peach with dimensional pearly green.” This can be used as a blush and/or highlight which is what I have been favoring for everyday.
When comparing Fairly Precious against Soft and Gentle you can see the differences in the swatches.
Soft and Gentle has more of a white beige reflective sheen on the skin. Fairly precious gives off a peachy thus more warm sheen that flatters my warm skin tone better. It looks to work more in synergy with my skin, and less obvious but still has the reflective effect I love for everyday use.
MAC describes Fairly Precious to have a green ... you are able to catch the green in the pan under certain lights, but on the skin, I do not see it translated.
*Note* All swatches are heavy
I find the texture of Fairly Precious to be smoother than that of Soft and Gentle, and slightly softer.
On the skin, I think this is one of the most natural highlight shades I have found and could not be more excited to have found this.
On paler skins I have seen people use this as a blush, but I prefer the lighter finish and highlighter purpose.
2014 has already begun with a beauty win!
On a semi unrelated note, like many make up lovers at the turn of the New Year "streamlining" seems to have been a big resolution I saw across a few blogs.
Meet my new everyday make up storage. I love it.
The whimsical characters, the daily reminders I require to try to remember all the lyrics to the classic song, and perfect sized storage for my everyday slap.
Getting this 50% off during the post holiday sales only sweetened this little tin.
Let's see how long this little tin can hold before I add in a few additional compartments ;)
