Subtle Glow for that perfect Dewy look! Wouldn't use as moisturizer
Tags +Creamy, digging it!
This is awesome product! I wouldn't use it as a moisturizer as indicated, but more as a highlighter to mix with your foundation or to apply on top of your foundation as a highlighter. I've used many highlighters and this one doesn't give you that sparkly Twilight vampire look but a nice refreshed glow.. and a little bit goes a long way. Stick to your normal regimen with skin care products that actually help with cell turnover, pigmentation and protection. Leave this gem as that extra glow touch to finalize your look. I've used this for a week and haven't noticed any breakouts or irritation. I like that its a mineral based product so it will allow your skin to breath throughout the day... just make sure you are thorough with cleansing your skin at the end of the day. 30 to 60 seconds with your cleanser will do the trick to make sure its thoroughly removed and will allow the ingredients in your facial cleanser to absorb in your skin and do their work! I'll def keep 'strobing' with this gem! Thanks MAC!!! :)

Just as GORGEOUS as the name!
Tags +Creamy, iridescent, gorgeous, healthy skin, clean look
This is my first time using this product and I can tell I already love it! When I look for a moisturizer I want something that will give my skin a great clean dewy look, without looking oily. Strobe cream is absolutely perfect for this look. The iridescent particles are just enough without appearing "glittery". I would recommend this to anyone to use even as a highlighter under the eyes! I don't think I will be wearing this to bed because even though it is a moisturizer, I want to save it for when people will actually notice my skin! Overall I love this and I plan to order it again!

I love this stuff! Holy grail status for sure. My only qualm is the price. How is the travel size $10 for a full ounce and this is $30+ and only 1.7 fl. oz. ??? Doesn't make sense. I will continue to buy the travel size.

Used to highlight
Tags +Creamy
I actually use this as a highlighter. I don't usually wear heavy makeup - I combine this with my Mac BB cream, and it gives a beautiful, dewy glow. I don't notice a heavy fragrance. I have sensitive, acne prone skin and haven't had any trouble with breakouts from this.

I mix this in with my foundation for an all over dewy effect. I wouldn't use it as a moisturizer on its own as that would be too much of this product. Just a small amount mixed with your foundation and its lovely

Stop Selling this
Tags +Creamy
I received this as a complementary travel size and read the reviews and like many others I disregarded it. After I received it I was excited to try it on. I put it on, wore it the whole day then took off with care makeup removal methods.
A few days later I noticed I started getting tiny bumps under my skin. I have had pimples before but never this many. It was a unnoticeable until I saw it in the mirror.
This product breaks skin out and should not be sold any more.

FRAGRANCE Nightmare Skin DESTROYER
Tags +Creamy, Long wearing
I fell in love with this cream upon my first applications despite the heavy obnoxious fragrance it contains hoping it would be fine. Total mistake. Fragrance is not for skin, period. I developed small, hard bumps under my cheekbone and around my jawline similar to what another reviewer reported about their experience with this cream. I also started to notice cystic acne quickly appearing on and around my nose! I do not even have problematic or sensitive skin! This cream, sadly due to the unnecessary added fragrance--is a destroyer of skin. I really wanted to love this cream as it did moisturize my it beautifully and worked exceptionally well under my makeup. My dearest hope is that MAC will remove the fragrance altogether from the strobe cream, or at the very least, create a fragrance-free version for those it severly poses a problem to. Very disappointed and sad cosmetic companies continue to insist on adding unecessary fragrance to their products. Such a disaster idea as fragrance is well known to irritate and aggravate all types of skin off and even worse ages it, too.

This dried me out so badly!!! It felt cool on my face, but it didn't do anything to moisturize. It smells like a chemistry lab. NO THANK YOU.

my new holy grail product.
Tags +Creamy, Long wearing, Color true
I recently purchased this cream. Being that I am lazy with my foundation and I refuse to stop using my studio fix powder, even though my skin is starting to get on the dry side. This cream saved my powder it is moisturizing and gives my powder foundation a nice healthy glow not greasy. I also saw that it makes my pores look smaller while I am wearing this cream , it also has softened my little crease lines under my eyes. I wish for the price we would receive a full 2oz. Come on mac you make the money make this bottle 2oz.

Where has this been????
Tags +Creamy, Long wearing, Hydrating
I live at the beach and have been searching for a great moisturizing cream for my face. Here, your skin tends to dry out with the sun. Thank goodness I have finally found a moisturizer that can handle my dry skin! Thank you MAC!!!

Effective daily moisturizer
Tags +Hydrating, calming
I'm impressed with this - its gives a beautiful glow that is a fantastic base for makeup without being oily. I have been using it every morning as my regular moisturizer and I was a little worried it would cause breakouts on my oily and irritable skin but I think it has actually calmed it down a bit. I feel like it is really doing my skin some good as well as looking pretty.

BEST CREAM EVER FOR DRY SKIN
Tags +Creamy
I bought a sample of this cream to try before I purchased. I love this stuff. I live at the shore and air goes from very humid to very dry and this cream does the job of keeping my skin smooth and flake-free!

Awesome moisturizer!
Tags +Moisturizing, luminizing
I love this cream. I live in a dry climate, and strobe cream both moisturizes and makes my skin look dewy and fresh. If I mix it with a little of my Pro Longwear foundation, it's a great "BB" cream when I want less coverage.

HOLY GRAIL PRODUCT!!
Tags +Hydrating, dewy
This is my holy grail. I have dry skin and could never get the dewy look. I use this right before I apply my foundation, I use this as a night moisturizer, AND I dab a little on certain spots after my foundation to illuminize! Sooo many uses for this! Leaves my skin looking supple and glowy... NOT GREASY OR OILY. Seriously worth the money if you're a dry skinned gal or guy too.

It's okay
The MAC employee swatched it on her skin and it was great. I usually don't buy products without looking at reviews but went for it anyways. I was using this in the areas I would apply my highlight to strobe and it didn't do anything for me. If you really want a bright highlight I wouldn't recommend this product.

I love this product, I use it on top on my foundation and under my powder. It brings out the highlighting that I do on top of my powder. It also easily blends.
