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.

not my fav
Sampled

I really had high hopes for this product but was disappointed when I used it. It left my cheeks feeling oily and it dint have that "highlighting" effect I thought it would.

This is a non-greasy no budge highlighter. I love that it goes on loose making it easy to blend

Just not for me
Sampled

It pretty well has the intended effect, it's just not for me. Not as heavy as I expected, but it does have staying power.

Blech

This made my skin look terrible. It gave it a pasty sheen and made it shiny. This is the second sample I've tossed of this product. Please don't send this again!

Love this!
Sampled

This is a great product! It moisturizes my skin without leaving it oily. I put it on right before I put on my make-up primer in the morning, and it keeps my skin hydrated all day!

I have dry sensitive skin. wanted this to work. It made my skin feel so dry that it felt like paper. It did make my face look "whiter" not brighter.(I am olive complexioned)

Perfect Skin Prep
Sampled

Perfect cream for a dewy, natural glow. I prep my skin (prior to foundation) and the stobe cream hydrates my skin and keeps my face and makeup looking healthy all day long.

Meh!

Overall, a decent product. But it was not for me. If you like highlighters, it gives you a nice glow.
