Mini-haul: MAC 168 Brush, Soft & Gentle Mineralise Skinfinish, Plum Foolery Blush

I picked up a few bits and pieces from MAC on a recent work trip to Seattle.  I've not bought any products from MAC in a long, long time - like all makeup lovers I went through a phase of buying up pieces from every new collection, but after I realised I was effectively buying the same stuff over and over again, I gave up.  I've retained a love for their Mineralise Skinfinishes, though - and when I popped into Nordstrom to pick one up, I couldn't resist a blush and a new brush too.

The MAC 168 brush is a slanted blush brush which gives you precision and control when applying to the cheeks.  The bristles are very, very soft and dense.

I chose to pick up the Sheertone Shimmer blush in Plum Foolery as well as Soft and Gentle Mineralise Skinfinish.

Plum Foolery is a rich, cool plum with golden shimmer.

Soft and Gentle is a shimmering champagne with veins of deeper bronze and softer gold.  It makes a beautiful highlighter, provided you use a soft touch, because...

Soft and Gentle is extremely shimmery, with an almost metallic gleam.  The MUA at Nordstrom really layered it up on my cheekbones, and it was only after I got back to my hotel after dinner that I realised I had an almost robotic cheekbone-shine going on.  Plum Foolery is also pretty shimmery, but it's not as intense as Soft and Gentle.  Both are well pigmented, softly textured, and easy to blend.
