MAC Strobe Cream

This stuff has been around for forever, but it was not until recently that I decided to give it a go. As someone with skin on the dry/dehydrated side, anything that claims to give me a gorgeous glow instantly captivates me.

As far as MAC highlighters go, the Mineralized Skinfishes and Cream Colour Bases are wonderful, but both very much shout, 'Hey! I'm wearing a highlighter!'. That's totally fine and I wear them regularly for a gorgeous sheen on the cheeks, however there is something really nice about a subtle glow. I have been searching for the lazy mate that I can throw on when I'm having a low-maintenance day, something that hints at a highlighter and lifts the face, but without being either matte or glittery.

MAC's Strobe Cream (50ml) can be worn all over the face, under make-up, or used on top of a base at the high points of the face for a lifted effect. I either blend this onto the cheekbones, bridge of the nose, chin and forehead underneath my foundation, or on top of my Origins VitaZing if that's my choice of base for the day. It is subtle but really works and I would thoroughly recommend! In the swatch photos below I tried to capture the various stages of blending it into the skin, but photos never do these things justice!
