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.

Great multitasker!

I love this stuff. Like the description says, I wear it under makeup or by itself. Makes my skin look way less tired than it actually is and works well as a primer. Lightweight and doesn't make me look too shiny or feel too heavy like some products do.

I hate any sheen in my makeup... you look shiny, greasy and your wrinkles are magnified!

I didn't understand this product. without foundation it's too shiny, under foundation it's invisible. too dry to use it as primer

I received this in my sample box and it has become a fast favorite. I use it before applying my bb cream and I am set to go! Very practical and pretty.

Great minimal product!

I love putting this on for a minimalist look. It has just the slightest sheen which is great for a day look.

Nice primer
Sampled

I haven’t had a shimmer primer before but I liked it. I personally felt self conscious that my face looked greasy. It didn’t feel like it but because of the added shimmer/shine It felt that way.

I love MAC products and this one was really good too, but for the price point I’ve found other products that work just as well for a lower cost like IPKN Radiant primer.
