Mac Strobe Cream; Shade Redlite About a week ago I purchased , for the 3rd time- a Mac Strobe Cream. (4th time, if you count my first purchase which was the OG Strobe Liquid! Anyone remember that!?, 2nd was the original Strobe Cream. 3rd was Pinklite, let me just say that to me, (idk if they changed the original Strobe Cream formula now, but when I bought it , it was almost EXACTLY the same shade as Pinklite, except I feel that it had a little more metallic pink lustre to it. I have read that others have noticed this, but upon talking with a Mac Customer Rep, she insisted the formulas haven't changed, but according to my own eyes and a ton of others- they do look different..anyway a week ago I purchased Redlite since I wasn't THAT thrilled with "Pinklite, what little pinksh hue of a metallic glow it had to it did fade pretty quickly. But let me tell you I ABSOLUTELY LOVE how Redlite looks on my skin. I do have light-light medium skin right now, but I am Olive in shade (think Macs NC 30.) The glow is OUTATANDING. I HATE the whole DISCOBALL look personally, but I also don't want to look all one dimension without any glow at all. Well this fits, for me, in-between. Redlite, has the PERFECT intensity of glow for me. I apply it after my holy-grail ride-or-die, mattifying moisturizer (Formula 10.0.6) & a matte spf.( I live in Miami= humid & sunny.) I only apply Redlite on my cheek bones & on top of my gel blush as a Blush-Topper. As a prior Celeb MUA (I say PRIOR = no thanks to PTSD:(, -let me tell you it looks absolutely STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL, hence making me FEEL pretty!!. It makes me look so dewy and glowy when the light hits, but by NO MEANS greasy or like an oil slick. You can even put a little powder highlighter over the top of the highest point of your cheekbones if you would like more intensity, but I prefer to use a liquid highlighter over the top for more Pazam! All in all , yes it's pretty expensive at $35 on Mac.com (in my humble opinion) but considering it lasts FOREVER bc a LITTLE GOES A REALLY LONG WAY!! Butttttt being a babe on a budget I did purchase it on Amazon for only $28 & change. That's almost 10$ less. Prime too, free returns, can't beat that! 5 stars for aesthetically pleasing I dropped a star on packaging as a lot leaks into the screw off top being that the thing is made to stands up on its cap, but hey no biggie. I would definitely purchase this shade of Strobe Cream whether your super fair, or have a darker complexion. Would look divine on the darkest of skin tones for sure :) Ps- Pro Tip- mix some with your fave foundation for a lovely, glowy tinted moisturizer DIY!
