Again, not one of MAC's best products. It's a cream that is supposed to make tired skin look more alive. If you have a pale complexion like I do, don't use this. Use Benefit's Moon Beam instead. The texture of the Strobe Cream leaves something to be desired as well. I felt like I was wearing clown makeup.

Strobe Cream was a pretty big disappointment. Its basically a pretty useless product hiding behind a kitchy idea. Its not a moisturizer and its not a highlighter. Its supposed to perk up your skin and produce a pearl glow. I saw nothing. Zip. Nada. No changes in my skin at all. And since its not even a moisturizer, what's the point of using this at all? Well, I think we all know the answer to this one. Tip: To really get a shimmery pearl effect, check out the Gleam Coat in Poly-Pearl.

Fun idea, but a little greasy as is the Hyper Real Foundation. Too much oil in these products!

What a find! A tiny bit gives you a radiance that is totally believable. A definite re-buy

This did'nt do a whole lot except feel like a mask of thick makeup on. It did'nt have a whole lot of shimmer and felt greasy.

This highlighter from MAC is supposed to impart a radiant glow to the skin. It comes in a white tube with a white almost opalescent hue to it. Looks great coming out of the tube. However, when I apply it, I don't really see it at all. Maybe it is so effective, I don't even notice it. But I don't think so. I think I will stick to Prescriptives or Benefit High Beam over this one!

There are many reasons that I didn't like this product. First of all, it didn't show up on my pale skin. (I'm giving it a 2 not a 1 because maybe it will show up better on other complexions.) Second, it made my skin a bit greasy and I think that it might have caused a breakout. Third, I didn't like the smell. Overall, a disappointment.

One of the few MAC products I like! It looks great on my pale skin, alone or over some foundatiogives you a nice luminous, dewy look. Looks even better on tanned skin-which I mostly have- mixed with some foundation gives you the most perfect luminous, dewy , glowing look! I absolutely love this product! Nice to highlight cheeckbones just a little- it is not meant to be a strong highlighter like some people expect! Gives you a very sexy, healthy lookink skin. Especially good for people with dull skin-lets it appear fresher! Absolutely great and definitely will buy again. Even suits my sensitive skin and gave me no brekouts.

Wasn't noticeable on my pale skin... also, it felt very waxy. Not worth the money.

This is not really a highlighter. For that purpose, there are other products that work better to give shimmer. But I use this UNDER my foundation and it really adds a nice luminescence. It comes in a largish tube, hinting that it is for brightening skin overall, like a shimmery moisturizer or base.

It looks good under incandescent and natural light, but not under fluorescent light (nothing, nothing looks good under those green ghoulish bulbs.)
