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.

To start with, I am not a fan of the MAC brand. This primer is ok. Not the best primer I have ever used, but it does go on smooth and it also leaves a nice shimmer effect. It is not a product that I would use everyday to go to work, but it is something that I would use for special occasions such as New Years Eve. It is not a product that I feel I would be purchasing in the future.

Amazing! Love every product I've tried from this brand! The eye makeup remover is the best I've tried! Small amount takes off even the most stubborn products! Will def be buying full size!

It works well & quickly. It is easy to wipe away the makeup.

Not for me

I think the product is probably perfect for what it’s intended for. But for me personally, I have a mixed background (half Mexican, half Caucasian) and “dewy” is not something that’s appealing to me as an end result of any kind of skin product. So I rated in the middle because the product definitely does what it intends to do, but lowered because it’s not something I prefer.

MAC strobe

MAC is an awesome brand however this product is not great on oily/combination skin it absorbs clean and fast however the issue is an hur later almost that makes the complexion very oily and no amount of powder will help with that traslucent or otherwise. Not for me

I liked it okay. I've never really been into the super shiny face look. if I put it on under my makeup the effect seemed lost but if I put it on over my makeup it would streak and smear. I started using it on days I don't wear makeup instead.

I have a Pacifica brand highlighter that is nearly the same thing. That being said this highlighter wasn’t a great color for my skin.
