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 Makeup Primer!
Sampled

I wasn't expecting much from this product but I really love using it! It gives my skin a nice glow and gives it an excellent soft, smooth base for putting on my next makeup products. I thought my foundation, blush, and highlighter looked extra gorgeous and dewy after applying this first.

So shiny looking, a little goes a long way
Sampled

I tried dotting this along my nose, cheekbones and forehead. That just resulted in my looking so shiny. I may try mixing this with my tinted moisturizer for a toned-down glow.

This product is great - even on its own, the Pinklite offers a healthy glow and feels super moisturizing.

I received this in “Pink light”. I already have a lot of pink in my undertone and this made it pinker. I think maybe the shade “silver light” would have better and more what I’m looking for.

I love the MAC brand so i was disappointed that this did nothing for me. Honestly just made my face feel oily.
