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.

Please stop sending discontinued items! It’s a tease and not what I pay for.

What?
Sampled

Strobe Cream? Is this supposed to be a highlighter? Or is it supposed to be a moisturizer cream or what? I don't know, I tried it and it is is nice enough I guess, it just doesn't have much use in my routine really

Strobe cream allergy
Sampled

I am allergic to many of the products of this brand. For example, the oil face cleanser gave me a rash on my face and the frost lipstick in the December box caused my lips to react, burn and peel. Please do not send me any more products in this brand.

Doesnt do anything

This product doesn’t look like it does anything when applied. Not really any highlighting effect.

Nah

Why would anyone want to be this luminous? Maybe I’m officially in the older category? It felt oily and overall not good and not flattering.

Not what I’m looking for. Not my style. I don’t like wearing foundation.

Shiny face
Sampled

I don't understand the point of this product. All it does is make your face look shiny, to the point of looking greasy, which isn't something I thought anyone wanted. If you put foundation over it, you can't see the effect at all (which is a good thing), and if you use it on top of foundation, you don't see much of anything. Maybe a little sparkle.

It seems like a few years ago, everybody wanted a matte look, and now the trendy thing is to look shiny. No thanks.
