This is one of my favorite MAC products. A staple in my kit both for beauty and for fashion. You can do a lot with it. I once achieved a 'plastic' look for a fashion shoot but applying layer upon layer of this. It photographed beautifully. Its amazing as a radiance boosting product as well. If you're feeling a little drained and want to inject a bit of brightness to your skin, apply a bit of the Strobe cream will bright life back to skin. Mixing it with a foundation will create an illuminating, healthy look. Using it as an illuminating primer also allows your foundation/tinted moisturizer to stay on longer and give a healthy glow to the skin. An absolute must-try
This is awesome under foundation as a primer to add a nice glow, as a highlighter and my favorite I put a little blush on add the strobe to my cheekbones blending downwards then add a little more blush over some of the Strobe. It just makes your skin look radiant!
Good, but must know how to use!
This product may have been re-developed since the days of earlier Mac. I use it to create a dewy and subtle finish to skin. Will not flatter skin used alone all over and not great for oily skin types.
The key is to use this in moderation and in the required areas or just in the high plains of the face.
Some of the time, I have mixed it with a liquid foundation to give me the soft lights finish to the skin.
Its growing on me...
I bought this product a few months ago, used it a couple of times and put it back in the drawer... But after a recent clear out I have started using it again and I am finding that it definitely helps my makeup stay on longer and I feel that my skin looks much more 'glowy' than before. I prefer the new MAC BB cream though as it has a bit of colour to it.
I absolutely love love love this product. One of my everyday and all time favorites. Was skeptical at first but it is so pretty and natural. Need no foundation, at least for me personally. Throw on nude lipgloss like boy bait and mascara and good to go. I was originally the one that left the review below.
