M·A·C Cosmetics Strobe Cream

Constantly being followed around by a lighting crew to mimic the perfect strobe effect isn't ideal—a girl can dream, though, right? This skincare-meets-makeup cream helps tired and dull skin look more luminous and achieve that coveted glow—no heavy equipment required. In fact, the vitamin-, green tea-, and botanical-enriched formula is so lightweight that it blends like a dream to give skin a subtle lit-from-within radiance. The Silverite shade gives lighter skin tones a silver sheen while Pinklite reflects a pink sheen on light to medium-dark skin tones. When worn under makeup, it creates a base for all the products layered on afterward. On days when you're feeling a little bit more low-maintenance, it can double as your moisturizer or you can layer over your favorite one for a soft luminescence.

I love this!!!

I thought this was just going to be another dang thing that I had to put on my face, but really, it's kind of nice.
I wear primer, foundation, and powder (gets rid of the 'shiny'), but it can really wash me out. My skin looks smooth, but it's lost it's luster.
This cream seriously puts it back!
A little shimmer under my foundation, and BAM! I'm glowing.
I can't rave about this enough.

I really liked the pink hint of color for this and it was lightweight. I have sensitive skin and was concerned it might irritate me but it didn’t.

Glowing

I used this product under my foundation and on it's own. I would recommend either way. Under foundation you get a slight glow and on it's on my face still looked finished and even.. it wasn't overly shiney at all .. it was just enough!

Could have been great

I really wanted to like this product, however it is just too shiny. It applies nicely and I haven't used enough to see if it hydrates, however it just reflects everything off of me. I like a nice shine if done well, however this was too unnatural and just didn't look good with or without makeup.

Flawless Face in Seconds

Have you ever thought "If I could only use five products for the rest of my life, what would I choose?"
For me, I might change four of those products on a regular basis. However? This strobe cream is without a doubt the one constant. I feel like I don't even need to add makeup after using it, because it is so effective at evening out my skintone and masking imperfections. The glow looks natural, but can easily be glammed up for the evening.

I personally have very dry skin. The strobe cream makes my skin look hydrated and soft. I don’t leave the house without it most days. I would definitely recommend to people with dry skin!

Multi use product
Sampled

I add to foundation, use a little for dewy skin. Add to cheekbones for highlights. Wet eyeshadow with it, intensifies colors. Add to brow bone as highlights...Etc etc. It’s not blingy, so daytime use is okay
