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.

This was okay!
Sampled

I feel like, for me at least, strobing is kind of a thing of the past, but I try and work this into my look I. Other ways.

Amazing as a Moisturizer Primer
Sampled

I put this on my skin as a moisturizer. It absorbed quickly. My face felt like smooth satin. I put my foundation on top. It gave my skin a glowing effect. It helped keep my foundation on all day.

Definite glow
Sampled

This product really does give a great glow, I just am not really a fan of MAC just because of some of the ingredients in their products. I have sensitive skin though

Doesn't play well with others
Sampled

I use skin oil instead of foundation, this product did not blend well with the oil. When I applied the product, it caked up and peeled off. I still use this product, but I don't apply my oil to the areas I am highlighting. Also, it is not a good match for my complexion, its too shiny for my "natural" look.

Hate highlighters, love this
Sampled

This does the job that a highlighter is supposed to but few people get highlighter right, they end up looking like the Tin Man. This gives you a very natural glow because the shimmer is very fine, not like you dusted your face with glitter. I've received this sample before but was happy to get it again!

Fun but

It felt greasy. I’m also staying o. The east coast from the west so maybe it was the humidity?
