My Experience with MAC Strobe Cream :

Strobe cream is one awesome product that MAC offers. It is a light cream with purply pearly finish. You can use it

  • Underneath your foundation to give a glow to your dull looking face.
  • only on the high points of your face and use it as a highlighter,
  • mix it with foundation to make your foundation more dewy
I use it all three ways depending on the occasion. When you swatch it , it may look like it has shimmers but once it goes on face, it just adds a sheen. Even in broad day light it you don’t look like a disco ball. And it photographs pretty well. I am wearing strobe Cream underneath my foundation HEREย This is pretty good highlighter for those who have big pores because it does not have any chunky shimmers or glitters that would accentuate your pores. If I am going out for a dinner I HAVE to HAVE strobe cream either mixed with my foundation or applying it underneath my foundation.
If you are someone who like matte finishes for your foundation, this may not be for you. If you have oily skin, this may work for you because the product is not oily or greasy. Totally depends on your personal makeup preference.
The only thing you always have to be careful about the strobe cream is that one should use a very little quantity of it . one may end up looking oil slik with too much of it.
It comes in an effective and transparent pump bottle. It is expensive but the product is good for good 2 years.

Swatch :

Overall, strobe cream is for people who want some dewiness, a radiant glow on their face. It is not an every day product but you can use it as a highlighter every single day as well. It makes your skin look more alive and fresh. Best for those with dry to combination skin types.
