Most Helpful Positive Review Liked this but...
Idk if anybody realized this but you can buy the travel size that has 1 oz in it for $12. this has 1.7 oz for $33 so you could buy 2 of the $12 ones and get 3 oz more for about $10 less.... I liked this product a lot and will be buying the travel size again lol!
Most Helpful Critical Review WONDERFUL product, best of it's kind! BUT terrible bottle!
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!!

Been using this for a year. Tried it first with the samples and fell in love.
Love light glow
G from California
I love this! I could really see the glow on my face with this product. I also bought the Becca lightening primer and this one to compare which I liked best. This won! The Becca was too subtle and not very noticeable. This is noticeable without being too shiny. Perfect amount of glow and light. I paired it with the Mac studio fix fluid foundation. So pretty!
My favorite mixing medium in the AM.

The Sales Associate at the MAC in Brea gave me the gold one to sample--and it was too yellow for my cool, olive skin. This was back in 2/20. However, what I did like was the gleaming, glowly effect. So, I bought the smaller version of Pinklite and finally took the plunge for the larger one after purchasing another small Pinklite. I've been using this product for a year and a half and I love it. It adds a natural highlight to the skin without looking greasy or oily. I have dry skin, so I mix a small amount with my daily moisturizer and put the 2 products all over my face, neck, and chest area. They work together and absorb into the skin beautifully. I don't have a go-to daily moisturizer, so this product works with several brands. Without makeup, I look hydrated and healthy. With foundation on top, I have a lit-from-within look. Love pinklite. Love strobe cream. Will continue buying it.

for the price I expected my face to look like shiny silk. my expectations were too high I guess. it doesn't last long and in not a fan of the smell either. it looks good going on, but it doesn't stay and gives an underwhelming glow if any at all. however, it could just be my skin type. but for me its just meh.
CM from OR
Not just a glowing primer but great a dose of skincare too! Love it

I have been using this for a week, exact same week I have 5 spots all over my face with cystic acne. It hurts and my skin has never looked this bad... Since I got pregnant more than two years ago, my skin has been great... and this just completely destroyed my face.

Really good product.
Keep the pink light glowing!
Debbie from Livingston LA
Repeat purchaser of this gorgeous product that can't be duped! Love the smooth as glass hydrated and youthful glow with no glitter. Leave that to the highlighter.! This product will have others asking, "what you have on your skin"?!
Strobe Cream is also on must Must-have list...
Romey from Pittsburgh, PA
Another product with magic in the bottle. It's been a great moisturizer for me, and adds a very soft glow to my skin. It's almost pearl like. It also smells amazing, I'm obsessed with the smell. I wish I could bathe in it. I digress. I throw this on in the mornings when I'm running late (READ: WAY OVERSLEPT AND OMG I HAVE A ZOOM MEETING IN LIKE 15 MINS!) This freshens up my skin with minimal effort and feels great after exfoliating.

I was looking for a luminizer to use along with my foundation. MAC is an excellent brand so when the saleswoman recommended it for that purpose I was fine with it. Because of Covid I couldn't sample it to see what it does but I bought it on her recommendation. I liked the smoothness and easy application but I don't feel it gives me the illumination I desire. I'm going to return it which I think is pretty much the way makeup sales are going right now. I already have some Bare Minerals gold powder but it provides too much illumination. I'll ask for something in between.
Makes a good primer
Tasha from Detroit, MI
This isn't my first choice for primer but I use it as a primer a lot for days I'm just running around or not doing a full face or if I'm waiting for a replacement of my primer
Don't use as a highlighter!
EmmaC from Houston
If you want to use this as a highlighter all it did to me was took off my foundation wherever I placed it on my skin! Works good if you mix with your foundation, but if you have oily skin don't do it!
This product is amazing!!
Lovebug from Sacramento
It is silky soft on the face and keeps your foundation looking moist.
Wish it had more pigment
Kaif from Usa
I am about light medium beige, with a very strong olive undertone, and this added absolutely no color but my skin did look better in flourescent and outdoor lighting. However I do not wear foundation, ever, so I wish I would have gotten the peachlite instead of gold. I have acne prone skin also and so far this has not made me breakout and hydrates very well. Even when I have had products that break me out MAC is always really really about returns for allergic reactions/break outs. I might buy the peachlite later. In the photo I uploaded I am wearing only the strobe cream no other face makeup, and some blush and MAC lipstick.
No one does that... but me
Shemistakenlythoughtitsforthelip from Philippines
So an online store just delivered this cream along with these MAC lipstick. Me, who's a newbie in the makeup world have been using this cream for my lips. And yes it does keep them from drying and i dont see cracks since. Never thought this meant to be for my face hahaha. Im still gonna use them tho
Sarah from Iowa
This strobe cream is absolutely perfect. I've mixed it with a semi-matte foundation for a more luminous finish, and have patted it directly on areas I wish to highlight. The soft pink color is perfect for my fair skin, and the glow is just enough so you see it, but not glittery or overly dramatic.
Wanted to love...
Macherie from East coast, USA
I really wanted to love this. I've been wanting to create my perfect J-Lo glow dewy skin look... Idk what I thought I would be getting but I'm pretty underwhelmed.
Sunny from Texas
It's a great primer. You don't need to use a lot and it doesn't irritate my super sensitive skin.
Not for me
Jaml from Connecticut
I was looking for a resplacement for a discontinued product . This item was suggested by the sales person. It made my cheeks look bright oink like I had a fever. Very unflattering on me. I have fair skin.
Sue from Omaha, Nebraska
I love how it melts with my foundation giving me a glowy finish. I really recommend using this product during winter months!
Will always use under my makeup
