Hey Everyone! Hope you guys are doing really well. Today! I am going to review one of the most loved MAC products. It is Mac strobe cream. Now, talking about this one. What is a strobe cream exactly? After a bit of research the simplest way to explain this is, a strobe cream has illuminating properties. There!

I wanted to buy a good highlighter, but since I don’t really use them that often I got a strobe cream instead.

There are a couple of shades available in this one the one that I got is Goldlite. The other shades are Peachlite, Pinklite, Redlite and Silverlite.

Fragrance of MAC Strobe Cream Hydratant Lumineux: 

It has a mild fragrance, a rather floral fragrance I would say. It is very calming and soothing. I can’t really point out what flower it is, but it is sweet and very mild. I sniffed really hard to figure out. The fragrance does not say for that long. Talking about the texture it has a creamy texture and adds moisture to the skin.

My Experience with MAC Strobe Cream Hydratant Lumineux: 

You can you this product in a couple of ways:

  • As a primer before applying the makeup.
  • Mix it with foundation or bb cream for the healthy glow.
  • Mix it with moisturizer to that natural fresh look.
  • Use as a higher lighter.

And Oh buoy, This one works really well in every aspect. Talking about my skin. I have really dry skin type. So, during the summers my skin looks a little dull as well. I got this one and it is a blessing. I started using this as a highlighter for the forehead and cheek bones. You don’t need a very large amount of product for each application. A very little amount is enough. All you have to do do is dot it with your figures and pat the product in. It does not work as an insane highlighter , but it does give a good glow to the face.

When you use it as a primer, it makes you glow from within. Don’t go overboard with it though. Use a coin size amount for the complete face. If you have oily skin. You don’t want to use it that much. Reduce the quantity according to your skin type.

For an everyday basis I mix it with my bb cream and I am good to go.

It also works really well as a moisturizer. The product works best when applied and blended with the finger tips. I absolutely love it and can’t go without it even for a day. It has never broken out on me or made my skin weird at all.

Pros of MAC Strobe Cream Hydratant Lumineux:
