I expected a much harsher product with a name like strobe cream. This would be more aptly named subtle glow moisturizer. It's very pretty. It's a comfortable moisturizer that absorbs well and...

MAC strobe cream really is bomb. As a moisturizer, it’s pretty fluffy and light-weight, so you can layer it with other moisturizers, or I suppose you could use it by itself, although I haven’t...
