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.

Very good pigmentation and lasts all day! Works well over powder foundation without messing it up.

Strobe cream

I did not like this or find good usage for this. Wasn’t like a highlighter and didn’t like the texture to use as a primer.

Love this!

Not a girl who wears a lot of makeup. This was perfect for a little glow without being heavy on those hot summer days.
