MAC's Strobe Cream: A big 'ol Drink of Water
MAC states that this product acts as a vitamin packed illuminating moisturizer of sorts. I have used similar products with stronger illuminating pigment properties before, so that aspect of the cream is off the table for me, but there is something about this cream that I really like.
I used this product as a primer for a foundation application. I did not mix it in with a moisturizer; I applied it straight from the tube to the face blending it in with a flat paddle foundation brush. I was pleasantly surprised with the result.
With this cream, you only need a small amount...a little goes along way. After applying this product, (I applied it over moisturizer) I noticed that my model's pores were significantly smaller and her complexion had an overall refreshed look. I applied foundation, and it looked fabulous. Her skin was not overtly dewey looking like some similar products have a tendency to do. Some may say that it's because of the illuminating properties, but I think there's a little more to it than that. I liken using this product to giving the skin a big 'ol drink of water. Her foundation stayed in place and very refreshed looking through a grueling 5 hours of intense stage lighting. MAC's Strobe Cream now has a permanent place in my kit.
A vitamin bomb for your skin
I love this product, the glow it gives and how great the skin looks and feels. You have to watch out though, since it has so many vitamins in it, you are not supposed to use it everyday, max 2-3 times a week, because when the skin receives so much nutrition repeatedly it stops making it on it's own. The smell is great and the texture is good, I mix it with foundations, sometimes I even use it as an highlighter over the foundation.
Love this luminizer.
I wanted a glowy, dewy look but sometimes I just couldn't achieve it with regular foundation and luminizing powders. Enter MAC Strobe Cream. I got addicted and used it like every day. It has a really nice texture, goes on cool and smooth and dries fast. Gives such a great glow you don't even need foundation if you have clear skin!
This was sort of an impulse buy. I wasn't looking for a highlighter, but they ladies at MAC convinced me that I needed it. I actually like it a lot! It's very light weight. I use it as a highlighter around my eyes. It gives a nice subtle shimmer without being overpoweringly sparkly.
I've been mixing this product with my full coverage creme foundation and it leaves a beautiful finish! I've tried it with M.A.C. Studio Sculpt and Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation and they both produced a lovely finish!! Plus, this product is full of antioxidants so you can't go wrong there!!
this cream is amazing
I decided to try and change up my prepping method before foundation and purchased this cream along with Mac oil control lotion. I must say this stuff is good I have extremely oily skin and it has always been a big concern, I mix this with a very small amount of Mac's oil control lotion and now I no longer need a foundation primer. My skin looks and feels better really such an amazing product can't believe I waited so long to try it (:
Although it is quite tempting to overlook M.A.Cs line of skin care, you would be missing out if you did. This moisturizer really is a power blend for skin. It has a plethora of anti oxidants, treats dry skin the way it should be treated and leaves your skin with a luminous glow due to the Mineral particles infused with the blend. Overall it creates ideal skin... soft... dewy.. luminous.. glowing.. without irritants. The only downside is that this moisturizer contains Fragrance, however the amount is very low and should cause no issue.
