The Wonder Product ; MAC Strobe Cream


Have you ever bought a product that you just thought was the most wonderful product in the whole wide world? For me, it was MAC's Strobe Cream. 

I picked this up on a whim from the 'Sized to Go' section of Nottingham's MAC store a few months back, as I was upset that I'd only be leaving with a concealer and I hardly ever go for shopping trips. But when I got it home I was a little confused... What even is this product? Is it a moisturiser? Is it a highlighter? What do I do with it? I scoured the internet and everyone had different uses for it, so I gave them all a go. 

First I tried mixing it in with foundation, but it changed the consistency of my foundation to one that didn't glide across my skin very well and left my foundation brush a little sticky and gross. 

I also tried using this as a moisturiser and it wasn't that bad in all honesty, it makes your skin glow amazingly! But I'd definitely recommend covering it over with foundation to create a subtle glow otherwise you just look overly shiny. 

What I really love this product as is a highlighter. I've been a fan of Benefit's High Beam for so long, but that has a pink tinge and I don't always want a pink cheeked look. This has more of a transparent almost white tinge, it just makes you look more glowy and contoured when applied on the cheekbones, down the nose and under the eyebrows. I also sometimes apply this to my collarbones when I'm wearing a strapless top as they look so much better when highlighted. 

This product just makes a face of makeup look ten times better. I picked this up for only £12.50 for 30ml, whereas a full sized bottle gives you 50ml for £23.50. The sized to go tube is actually better value for money! 

Do you have this product? What do you think of it?

  1. This sounds gorgeous, I'd have to just use it as a highlighter though as otherwise I'd end up a bit too luminous!

  3. Great review! I must try this, because I also really like the benefit high beam, but don't like having pink cheeks all of the time.
