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.

Surprisingly AMAZING

I didn't exactly know what the product was for...but I eventually learned that you can use it as a moisturizer/primer. So I have been using it for a week in place of my Primer and my skin looks SO much healthier and less red. It's winter now, so I suspect my face was in need of hydration and this is the perfect product. It leaves my skin dewy without melting my makeup that's on top of it. The smell is not great though, so hopefully MAC will improve that in the future.

Love this stuff!

I love how light weight and luminous this is! I mix it with my tinted moisturizer and go, it really helps with coverage.

I have never used a product like this before, I am on only day two of it. We will see after a full week of use, maybe I will actually enjoy. The product itself is not all that bad!

Nothing special
Sampled

Didn’t notice much difference compared to other primers, plus this brand tests on animals in order to sell in China, so I’ll pass

This made my skin super soft and it had a surprisingly strong smell which I typically don’t like but it was really pleasant

I had a sample of this one its small but a little goes along way. You can use it alone too. Its beautiful pearly opalescent.

Fine product but I wouldn’t buy
Sampled

I don’t feel like this did anything for my skin. It was also a very tiny sample. I did not notice any real positive changes or impacts after using it.
