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.

Nah! I don't need my face to mimic the perfect strobe effect. LOL

The glow and pigment is very pretty. I really like how the product is part skin care .

Dewy look

This cream creates quite a pretty effect! I will say that it is most noticeable on top of moisturizer, although it is a nice texture as a moisturizer alone. I have dry, thirsty skin this time of year so it might work better if you've got less-dry skin...

Any thing by mac is a great product. Goes on smooth but is not necessarily something I would choose to buy or would buy again

Perfectly highlights with out sparkling- its like a good night sleep in a tube. It makes me look more refreshed than I actually am. This will be permanent part of my makeup routine

Glo like J Lo

I thought this was a fun sample to try as it seems to have a cult-like following! It creates a nice shimmer and seems like there are many ways to use which I am still playing with. The little sample goes a long way! But I don’t think I will invest in a full size as it isn’t so much different than other highlighters I’ve used.

I like this one But not sure if it’s beneficial? Smells good and feels soft.

Not for me

I use primer regularly but do not like this brand, nor do I enjoy the concept of a pink glow under my makeup with my skin undertones. Will not be using.
