Mac Soft and Gentle Mineralize Skin Finish £5 dupe?

MAC's mineralize skin finish in Soft and Gentle has been on my wish list for ages now! But I'm trying not to spend money on make-up right now as I'm getting pretty overwhelmed with the amount I already own.
However when I found this dupe for £5 I couldn't help myself!

Soft and Gentle retails for £21.50 here in the UK.
I don't own this product myself so I can't show you swatches (but if you Google search you'll find loads of good images!) but I every time I am near Mac I always swatch it and lust after it so I definitely know what it looks like!

However I was in a different Tesco to the usual one I shop in and found a whole range of Make-up (exclusive to Tesco) which I had never seen before.

The VIVO range is very cheap, with eye shadows starting at £1.50 and palettes at £4.

So I was browsing through their face products when I came across this:

It is sold as a  baked bronzer but for me it has too much shimmer in for a bronzer.
However it's perfect for a highlighter and is soooo similar to Soft and Gentle

The name of the VIVO shade is - Healthy Glow Shade 3 

It is the perfect amount of pigmentation for a highlighter and looks great against my pale skin.
The powder is also very soft to touch and is nice and lightweight.

I can't wait to start using this regularly!

Do you use thsi or any other VIVO products?
Do you have another dupe for MAC products?


  1. Oooh how fab! Great tip Hannah!
    I've never seen any of this range before but I will be keeping an eye out :)


  2. Neither had I until I went to one of the huge 24 hour tescos. It's quite a good range aswell just a potty it's not available in all stores!

  3. Accessorize does a great dupe for soft and gentle too!
