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.

Love this product!
Tags +Long wearing
Bought this as a sample to try out first and simply fell in love! Hope MAC never discontinues this product. It is non-oily but gives your skin just the correct amount of moisture with a nice glow underneath makeup. I apply it about 10 minutes before and let my skin soak it in. I had been wearing makeup for 4 days consecutively which i never do because it usually wears out my skin and with this underneath my skin has actually been looking better than ever! Highly recommended :)

Miracle in a bottle
Tags +Hydrating, Non-Oily, Skin brightening
I don't know what it is about this product, but no matter how tired I look, it adds like an immediate awakening and brightening effect to my face. Try to let it absorb for 10 minutes before applying foundation for maximum effect.

I like this cream...took off one star because it doesn't show through every foundation like previous posts said. It's still beautiful, none the less.

It's Ok
I saw some you-tubers use this so I went out and ordered this. For me, this is so-so. I did not think it gave such a dewy look or some kind of luminosity with its "iridescent" particles. On a positive note, this leans towards being more matte-looking rather than oily or greasy looking and was not glittery or sparkly. I prefer more of a dramatic look than subtly or at least show a very noticeable difference.....this did not make much of a difference on me esp for the price. I did not think this was particularly moisturizing. Nor did I think it "de-snoozes, de-stresses, 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." I did not notice. I hate to be so harsh and it kills me to write this;) I love MAC products but this one disappointed me. I think there are other products that claim to do what this does much better. I do think it is overpriced. $33 for 1.7 ounce. I was expecting a much bigger product. Would I buy again? Nope. Maybe I received a lemon;)
