In Detail MAC Strobe Cream Review, Swatches, Demo and My Experience

Let’s start with understanding the meaning of strobing. STROBING is basically intensive highlighting to radiate a youthful look. M.A. C has two types’ strobing creams:-

1. MAC STROBE CREAM ( for normal to dry skin)
2. MAC STROBE LOTION ( for normal to oily skin)

Today I’ll be writing about M.A.C STROBE CREAM which is meant for people with normal to dry skin. M.A.C strobe cream comes in a 50mL white tube with a black cap. The quantity is quite good and long lasting. The white tube has pink iridescent particles which gives a highlight to the tube and also makes it look attractive.

The product is a white cream with purple iridescent particles for highlighting the skin. These iridescent particles give a dimension to your face. I don’t to like to use it on myself as my skin is oily and on a deeper skin tone side. It makes my face look grey and greasy. But I have used it on my clients with fair and dry skin and it has turn out very well and they have never complained about it. Instead they get so much fascinated with its result that many of them bought it for themselves.

It can be used as a skin care product, as apart from giving glow to the skin it also hydrates your skin. It can be used in different ways. Check out these different ways in the application section below.

How to Use MAC Strobe Cream – 4 Different Ways!

There are four ways of using it

1. Use it beneath the foundation

• Moisturize your face well. Then take a very little amount of strobe cream and apply it all over the face using your hand or a foundation/ buffing brush.

2. Mix it with the foundation

• In order to make a matte finish foundation or any foundation dewy, add a drop of strobe cream to it. Then apply the foundation on your face using finger or foundation brush.

3. Make foundation a shade lighter

• In order to make your foundation a shade lighter, add a small drop of strobe cream to it. Mix it well and then apply the foundation on the face.
• But remember that it will also change the properties of your foundation and make it dewy.

4. Apply on highlighting areas

• This application method is best for people with oily skin who have unknowingly bought this product.
• After applying the foundation take drop of strobe cream and apply it on the highlighting areas such as the area right above the eye brows, middle of the eyebrows, down the centre of the nose, middle of your upper lip, middle of the chin and right above the cheek bone. Apply it in a patting motion using a finger or small concealing brush.
• For people with oily skin apply it only on the cheek bones and right above the eyebrows.

MBF Advises

Overall, it is a very good product. Gives a dewy and glamorous look to your face. For best results buff it well into your skin with a buffing brush. And as I have mentioned earlier also it is not suitable for dusky and oily skin people.

MBF Rating


So ladies! What are you waiting for? Look glamorous this wedding season and I am sure people are definitely going to ask you the reason behind your glowing skin.

People with fair but oily skin don’t worry M.A.C has a product for you as well. You can try M.A.C STROBE LOTION which works almost the same way. Well I am not going to be partial with our beautiful dusky Indian skin tone ladies. I will be soon writing about a product that would give you that bollywood diva look but currently that’s a surprise for you all. To know more about it stay tuned with MAKEUP AND BEAUTY FOREVER. 🙂
