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.

Enjoyed this but would not purchase. Slight shimmer is nice but have used better highlighters!

Nice strobe
Sampled

Leaves a dewy strobe look to my cheeks, highlights the right areas in a subtle casual way so that I can feel extra without looking too extra for a casual day event

Love this

Been using this for a couple years actually before receiving it in my birch box. I put it on under my make up or just wear it without anything for a natural glow. Doesn’t break me out. Doesn’t make you shiny. Highly recommend. And I really want to try the bronze colored one

Not sure if I’d use it again.

I tried it but didn’t notice a significant difference on my face. A little too expensive for me to buy the full size bottle.

This is great for before you put your makeup on.
I don’t use it a lot but when I do the makeup looks even better.
