About 10 years ago I was at a Me to We event and we left with a swag bag (probably the first big, fancy event swag bag I had ever received) containing a whole bunch of stuff, including a MAC strobe cream, a MAC eyeshadow duo and a MAC lipgloss in this really unflattering pale pink. I was so in love with everything, my first big MAC haul! When an email about the new MAC in the Spotlight collection landed in my inbox, I couldn't help but think back to that swag bag. Today I am here with a review of their new strobe cream in "Silverlight"
Previously MAC's Strobe Cream only came in a soft pink (now called "Pinklight". However the cream you all know and love now comes in pale red, pale gold, pale peach and pale silver. No matter what your skin tone and undertones are, there is now a Strobe Cream for you!
You can tap it on your cheeks as a soft highlighter, or mix it in with your foundation, primer, or moisturizer for a subtle all over glow. I love the soft almost cucumbery scent of this cream, and how versatile it is. Used on its own it is a bit strong, but mixed into various creams it is just lovely!
Sorry for looking so tired! I took this photo on a Monday at work... here I mixed some Strobe Cream in silverlight into my moisturizer, and then also tapped some onto my cheek bones, cupid's bow and nose.
Strobe Cream retails for $33 USD/$40 CAD and is availiable at your local MAC counter or online. They also launched some beautiful new highlighters in this collection that are worth checking out.
Have you tried out these new launches yet? What do you think of them?
