    Comments about MAC Strobe Cream:

    I absolutely love this cream it's a staple in my makeup bag. I use the shade pinklite and contrary to the name it's not actually pink it's a sort of iridescent white cream. It is jam packed with amazing ingredients and it's so good for your skin I wear this under foundation and alone it's a great moisturizer and can be used as a sheer highlighter. It smells amazing and dries fine it's not sticky or tacky. I love,love,love this cream!!

    WONDERFUL product, best of it's kind! BUT terrible bottle!

    By reviewer72

    from Chicago, IL

    Comments about MAC Strobe Cream:

    PLEASE change the packaging!! I love this moisturizer and the natural looking glow that it gives my face, but the bottle is terrible! It is too rigid and when the product gets low, it is very hard to get out. I feel like a lot is being left behind. I cut the bottle open to get to it and stored in in a plastic bag so it wouldn't dry, but I really don't care to go through that trouble again. I see many of your primers and other skin products use this packaging... until it changes, I will not try these either! Such a shame because I absolutely LOVE MAC Cosmetics!!

    Comments about MAC Strobe Cream:

    I was given a sample of this Strobe Cream in Silver. And when that was gone I purchased full size. I absolutely LOVE this product! It illuminates my skin, my dark spots and uneven skin tone are fading, it is not too greasy, it is affordable, and it does not have a ton of perfume smell which I cannot tolerate. I will continue to purchase for a long time. I am 58 years old, with nice skin, combo/sensitive type. I only use moisturizer on my cheeks and once in awhile on my forehead and this suits me fantastic. I do have the "11" lines between my brows which I don't think this would help but I didn't expect it to. I am still searching for an affordable deep line cream for that but...again, I absolutely love this Strobe cream!

    Tried and true!

    Comments about MAC Strobe Cream:

    It's no wonder that this has long been one of MAC's staples and what they're known for. This works terrifically as either a highlighter you apply after foundation, or in my case, I mix it with my foundation. Mixing it with the foundation gives you just the right "glow". I was previously just using the small samples I would get with my order. Then I decided to finally purchase the full size. SO glad I finally did!

    Love The Glow

    By Bri

    Comments about MAC Strobe Cream:

    This moisturizer is good for my normal to dry skin as a moisturizer and as a primer. Not only does it gives me a natural glow, it's good for my skin and I can see the benefits. My skin looks so good when using this product. I really hope that MAC keeps this product around forever. I finally found a good healthy skin moisturizer that makes me glow and moisturize my skin!

    Strobe Cream Didn't Do It For Me!

    By vampirebat

    from Hawaii

    Comments about MAC Strobe Cream:

    I've heard everyone rave about this product...For years. I definitely expected more out of it when I purchased a bottle. I've seen it as moisturizer, as makeup primer, as a one-and-done for a makeup-less day. I was so excited! However...I was more than disappointed. I have oily/combination skin, so my greatest concern was the strobe cream making me even greasier. That definitely wasn't the case. The strobe creamed dried my skin out, it looked like all the moisture had been sucked from my pores! It made me feel chalky and tight, and made my blemishes stand out! As a primer, I was hoping for the best. Nope. Makes application harder. Makes foundation very streaky. Again, sucked all the moisture from my face, I was a dry, patchy mess! I don't understand the hype. Maybe it'll work for you. The only reason I'm giving it 2 stars, is because swatched on the hand, it's beautiful and perfectly pearlescent. Face? Different story.

    Comments about MAC Strobe Cream:

    I got this the first time as a sample when I purchased a few things from mac, and I instantly loved it! Im a brown complexion and I went and rebought the original one (that's the one I got as the sample) and it is perfect with my skin tone. Adds the right amount of shimmer to my face and it definitely is long lasting! I love this! I have sensitive skin also, so I was hesitant to try it when I got the sample, but it didn't do any wrong to my skin!
