This is a wonderful product! I received a very generous sample of this from a fabulous and very kind MUAer. I use this as a highlighter after my foundation. I tap on and lightly blend down the bridge of my nose, browbones and top of cheekbones as well as a tiny bit on my chin. Wow, does it make a difference!! I instantly look more defined, polished, and just prettier. Its one of those steps that I just have to do now because the effect is just that nice. I did try it under my foundation a few times, and didn't really notice too big of a difference...very nice product anyway and I will most definitely be buying this once my sample runs out. :) PS. I tried using this under my MU as a an allover moisturizer/highlighter again and it did absolutely nothing. But on top of MU, perfect! I can't tell you how much of a difference this made for my face. It creates a celebrity-like glow. LOVE! **update** Really, really loving this. I definitely notice a difference when I am not wearing it. I have gotten so many compliments from my sister and friends whenever I wear this...people just say my make up looks so good and I look very "sculpted." :) I think its my new killer combo of strobe cream+Chanel blush+187 brush. HG combination!
I use it as a make up base before foundation. It gives
that girly glowy healthy complexion. love the smell and texture.
moisturising and it just feels so nice after application!
never caused me any skin problem. (dry/combination skin)
This looks pretty in the pot, but on my face it is just SO glowy and vibrant that it makes me look like a disco ball. Makes me wanna do the Hustle.
This is a great highlighter. I mix a tiny bit (a little goes a long way) with my moisturizer and it really brightens up my complexion. I will definitely repurchase this.
I love MAC's Strobe Cream! I bought it for the first time on a whim and I've never looked back. I use it when I go out, by dabbing a bit on my cheekbones, nose and chin--over my concealer or foundation. Somehow it makes your face appear more proportionate and sophisticated. Be warned; a little goes a long way! Make sure to use sparingly and blend well.
My fav highlighter so far. Brightens up any dull skin, giving a healthy look.
I'm guessing i could skip moisturizer on t-zone as this is quite moisturizing as well. I apply a tiny bit under foundation and powder; even thought the powder neutralizes a bit its effect the moment you put it on, it'll settle after a while and let Strobe Cream effect arise to the surface. Not greasy at all as one could think at first. The idea of the green tea in it, really pleases me.
Now I want to try this alone without foundation as i've heard it works great too.
This is one of the few highlighters that I actually find myself reaching for on a regular basis. It's a nice soft glow- no glitter at all- that looks good all over. I use it most on my decolletage in the summer, but it works well everywhere I put it. I love using it after Mystic Tanning as well to keep the skin looking fresh and pretty. It works nicely when blended with foundation, but I totally agree with another poster that if you plan on being photographed a lot, you should probably use this sparingly and just highlight areas that you want highlighting rather than all over. I only took off a lippie because it smells terrible....not bad enough to stop using, but bad enough that it's bothersome.
I've already bought another one because I like this product a lot. I put it under my eyes and on my nose and across the bridge of my nose. I dont put it on my cheeks or forehead or anything like that because I just like the subtle glowing look.
It has very tiny shimmer particles. And it does well to brighten up my face. I have an oily tzone but it doesnt seem to mess up with my oilyness.
but.. DONT WEAR THIS IF YOU'RE GOING TO BE IN PHOTOS! Your face ends up looking like a headlight in photos. I've learnt it the hard way...
SO in love with this product. I use it every morning under my makeup. One great use for it: I wear it to the gym when I'm not wearing other makeup and it gives me a nice glowy healthy look without a lot of effort. I like that it doesn't require much to get that dewy look, and also that it doesn't make my face feel greasy. It also provides a nice base to put my foundation on. Excellent product!!!
I was given a sample of this by a lovely MAC SA. I love how this looks when I'm wearing SHEER foundation, I really do glow but under medium foundation it doesn't show. This is a thick cream/lotion with no glitter but pearly sheen and smells plastic-y. It keeps my foundation from caking around my nose and I find I don't need to blot as often. I have not experienced any break outs/bumps from using this. I will buy the full size tube next time I'm at MAC. The only gripe I have is that it's pretty expensive in Australia but I know a little goes a long way so I won't be repurchasing anytime soon.
