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.

Back of the sample says not for sale! I bought a sample I could have gotten for free at the makeup store! Yes it’s only 10 dollars but come on!

Better as Highlighter
Sampled

Tried it all over my face (I have dry skin), & dried it out severely. My facial makeup was just setting on my face. So I tried it as a highlighter instead and it worked better that way. If you have dry/sensitive skin I recommend NOT putting it all over your face. It's better to just use as a highlighter.

Not good for sensitive skin

I was excited to try this, but the day after one application my skin was red and itchy. Oh well!

Amazing cream!

This is a delicious product. From the text to the scent to the wear! It’s non greasy and sinks right in. Smells like heaven!! I’d like to keep this in my routine!

Nice luminous primer
Sampled

This cream is good for brightening but doesn't really work for me because I have a very oily skin so the last thing I need is to look shinier. For someone with dry or normals skin this could be great

Surprise new fave
Sampled

This strobe cream is the subtle gleam my dull winter skin needed. The sample size has lasted a while, and I know I'll be buying this when I run out.

Using this as a primer underneath your face makeup, leaves you with a glowy look all day long. This product lasted the entire night I was out and gave me a more natural glowing look under my foundation. This product can also be used as a cream-like highlighter, however it is a bit white looking on the skin if used in that way.

glow like a filter
Sampled

I love MAC and I love this product. This highlighter makes my skin glow in all the right places like I'm lit correctly and have a photo filter on. A little goes a long way.
