Must Have: MAC Strobe Cream


I can't even fathom how wonderful this bottle of joy has been in my life and now I wonder why I haven't found this sooner. At first I started out with a sample and after ONE application of this on my skin, I was hooked. From the MAC website Strobe Cream is described as:
"The ultimate quick fix for the skin. Super-powered with potent botanicals; de-snoozes, de-stresses, moistens, freshens and boosts the look of dull, flat or tired-looking skin with a fully loaded vitamin zap and a mega dose of green tea. Brightens and clarifies with iridescent particles and antioxidants. Enhances the effects of light on all skin and in all lighting conditions from sunlight to spotlight."
My skin right now is dry/normal and I'm always needing products that gives my face more moisture & iridescence. This does not completely replace my moisturizer so I use equal parts moisturizer and Strobe Cream. Since using this, it has given my face the most gorgeous glow... It's what I wish my skin would always look like.
Strobe Cream is a thin, white moisturizer with a lotion like consistency and there are different ways to put this on. Some use this as a moisturizer, others use it to highlight certain areas for a sheer glow & others mix this with equal parts their foundation. I can see how some combination/oily/oily types would want to stray away from this.. but for those skin types the trick is to apply it sparingly and in certain areas such as the cheek bones, brow arch and middle of the forehead.
BEFORE (NO MAKEUP) - I KNOW! DON'T JUDGE ME! (Check out my cute little teddy bear! he likes to play with makeup too)
 AFTER (w/ Strobe Cream - buffed in my skin with MAC brush 188)
Hopefully you can tell the difference between the two, the after picture added some moisture and glow to my dull skin. Strobe Cream isn't at all "in-your-face," it's very subtle and beautiful.

 BTW, I looked at this picture and I realized it wasn't blended to the best of my abilities so please don't judge me for that! haha! But as you can tell, it has completely brightened up my skin and added a very luminous look. I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS!

If you are semi-interested in this product, get a tester! I'm sure you'll be hooked after the first application. :)
Until Next Time! :)
