Dewy not Oily!

I really liked this cream, I don't wear much makeup but I always use this cream. It makes my skin glow and look super dewy without looking oily or sparkly. It looks totally natural!

Most Helpful Criticism

Thick

Cindy

Not really for me as it as a bit too thick for my liking, but it's a good base if you want a dewy look

  2. Best shimmery makeup base

    oenone

    I love the glow my face gets from the strobe cream. It gives a natural but shimmery and glowy look to my face! It’s a must item to achieve a dewy look.
  3. Absolute staple

    Alexandra

    verified purchaser
    I Love this! I have tried other brands but nothing seems to compare. I regularly get comments when I wear this. The colour options are beautiful also. Beware this doesn't work with all foundation fomulas however i use this with a touch of MAC Studio Fix and it creates a beautiful dewy glow.
  4. Amazing glow

    Sav

    This product is a must if you love luminosity and glow. It works amazingly. Im not a High end product type of gal but this is just hands down worth it
  5. glow baby glow

    anomymous

    this strobe cream makes my skin so dewy i love it. i use it underneath my makeup and on days where im not wearing makeup i like to put a thin layer over my face and it just give me this natural glow that makes my skin look so healthy and glowy
  6. Bright base

    D

    Gives my makeup base a brighten up, without looking super white. Just gives it a natural brighten up and the product feels super light on my skin too
  7. Well and truly addicted to these strobe creams

    Adorelover

    I like the Silverlite and Pinklite. I like to put it underneath my foundation to give me a glow although as an oily girl I find I prefer more of a matte look. I don’t reach for it as often anymore and it is quite exxy compared to other brands on the market.
  8. Great for highlighting

    xthutranx

    I don't use this as an all over face primer, (I have oily skin and it can be a bit much) but I love to use it to highlight certain areas of my face prior to applying foundation. This is also a really good product to mix in with a matte or thicker foundation to make it more of a lighter coverage.
  9. Perfect for no makeup days

    Frances

    I use this when I don't want to wear a whole lot of makeup and go for a no-makeup makeup look instead. Gives a really natural glow that works great for my skin when I don't have foundation on.
  10. A little goes a long way

    Mia

    I love using this as a base before I put on my foundation, the highlight it's very subtle and natural yet still gives you that luminous dewy lit from within look! You also don't need that much of it, I usually just use a small dot as I find that a little product does a long way.
  11. Thick

    Cindy

    Not really for me as it as a bit too thick for my liking, but it's a good base if you want a dewy look
  12. Good but not sure of price

    Jessica

    I got a sample of this and I did enjoy the effect it gives. It gives a nice glowy effect. I like to mix it in with my foundation/tinted moisturiser. You only need a little. Texture is pretty nice as well. It is light and it isn't sticky. However, I was surprised when I saw the price. I am more likely to considered something else before considering buying a full size of this.
  13. My secret weapon

    Lana

    This is my secret to radiant skin with or without makeup! It's gorgeous even alone on a makeup free day to give your skin a subtle glow or as a makeup primer.
    My skin can be dry/sensitive and this has never caused any irritation. It helps to add hydration for lasting makeup all day!
  14. Gorgeous base

    Jay

    The gold lite one is sooo pretty, gives your skin a glowy base for dewy foundation
  15. Beautiful illuminator

    Mon57

    Everyone must try the MAC strobe creams. They are so amazing and make the skin look radiant and beautiful.
  16. Perfect glowy base

    Gigi

    The perfect base to keep you moisturised and glowy!
  17. Staple for daily makeup

    Joce

    This is a staple! Can be used as a primer or as a highlighter when applied more heavily after foundation. Reflects like naturally and does not look too 'shimmery. A little does a long way mine never seems to run out!
  18. Illuminating primer - best I have tried

    Lucy

    I have pink undertones to my skin, and the PinkLite is the most incredible primer that I have ever used. Literally makes you glow, and makes makeup over the top glow too. I use whenever I want a 'wow' finish. Foundation never piles on top. Lightweight and absorbs fast. Also reasonably priced. Can't recommend enough!!
  19. Really love this!

    Maria

    I really enjoy using the MAC strobe creams - they add such a beautiful glow to the skin. I love mixing it with my foundation. Peach would be my favourite shade.
  20. Not sure!

    Nida

    I feel as though it moisturised only but it was great I did not feel sticky etc and it gave this glow as well. I liked applying mine before foundation. The price is quite expensive though& I'm aware there are others that do the same job ! Matter of preference : )
  21. Great!

    EmJaneC

    Love this product, mix 50/50 with your foundation for a natural dewy look- a makeup artists secret.
  22. Good luminiser

  24. Helps create a natural glow

    Christina

    I apply this beneath my foundation and it really helps create a natural glow. You only need to use the tiniest bit, so it lasts for ages.
  25. natural glow

    Alice

    Gives gorgeous glow to the skin is great when used alone or under makeup the tube of this is also looks super sleek and is a great size find it blends into the skin the best out of all ive tried
  26. not too sure what it does but it is nice

    Greta

    It is a lovely moisturiser like a soft primer. I am not too sure if it does much else
  27. Glow!

    Jen

    It gives good moisture and a nice natural glow to the skin. I have very dry skin but this didn't irritate my skin at all or make it feel drier.
  28. excellent

    kish

    I bought this product a month ago and it is amazing. I know very little about makeup but I do know that using foundation always left my skin dry before I started using this. I was told about this creme and it has made my make up look professional and my skin is no longer suffering. I love it!

  29. Makes no Difference.

    Melissa

    The Mac Strobe Cream is so highly rated on the Adore Beauty website as being a good luminizor and gives a glow to the skin. I applied it under my makeup, dries quickly, and noticed no Difference in the appearance of my makeup at all. No Glow what so ever. I don't know what I am doing wrong, but I did follow the guidelines on application. Disappointed!
  30. Beautiful glow

    Ru

    I finally purchased this after looking at it online for months. I was initially concerned that this might be too heavy for my combination skin, but I mix this with my tinted moisturizer and it gives me the most beautiful, natural glow. I have this in pinklite and will purchase again.
  31. Not bad

    Av

    It provides a good sheen to the skin and foundation looks good on top of this. I normally use this for events or night outs under the foundation. But it is very pricey for what it does.
  32. Great

    Alice

    This gives my skin a glow and looks good on its own or underneath my foundation
  33. natural glow

    s

    Perfect strobing product that gives me the most perfect, natural glow
  34. So versatile!

    Tayla

    I use this as a day time moisturiser/primer and it makes me look lit within. No chunky glitter or sparked just illuminated.
    You can also apply it over the top of your foundation and it looks beautiful! So hydrating and doesn’t break me out
  35. The key to perfect glowing skin

    Georgia

    I've never found another product similar to Mac strobe cream. There are plenty of other glowy primers on the market, but I haven't found any that give me the PERFECT glow like strobe cream does- not shimmery, not textured, not too obvious. Wearing strobe cream is like having a perfect skin day every day. I like how there's different colours to match all skin tones. I personally have pale skin with...

  36. Nice rosy glow

    SiobhanL

    I got a sample of this in pinklite, and I wasn't quite sure what it was actually for, but I put in on my cheeks and it adds a nice rosy glow. You don't need too much at all, and since this is for dry skin I don't use much of it anyway, since I have more combination/oily skin. It's a bit like a blush-moisturiser. The pinklite is very nice.
  37. The best

    Si

    I have very dry skin but this didn't irritate my skin at all or make it feel drier. I got a sample of this and definitely see why it is such a big hit. It gives good moisture and a nice natural glow to the skin.
  38. Just ok

    Mani

    it is just like another glowing mosturizer nothing special about it. it does made my skin smooth but i already have oily skin so did not want any more shine to it. otherwise feels good on the skin.

  40. Amazing

    T

    This product is great for those days when you want glowing skin. I like to wear it underneath my foundation to give that glowing from within look. I have combination skin and do find that I can get quite oily in my T zone throughout the day with this product, but that is to be expected. So I would recommend touching up with a powder for those with oilier skin.
  41. So beautuful!

    Nadia

    Its subtle and natural yet still gives you that luminous dewy lit from within look! This stuff is dewy good skin in a genie bottle!
  42. amazing

    kah

    The MAC strobe cream is so beautiful when applied under the foundation it gives that dewy glow. I got the gold shade.

    Amazing under the foundation to give glow. Wakes up my make up.
  45. Amazing

    Ann

    My makeup looks dewy and healthy even though i use a matte foundation bec i use this cream
  46. alright

    Luci

    its a good product for people with very tolerant skin but I myself find it a bit too much under makeup, a bit greasy feeling
  47. Lovely glow

    Ella

    This is lovely either alone or under foundation. Gives a lovely luminous glow, that can be seen through foundation when used underneath. Only time I wouldn't use it is on a night out or a day I needed really durable makeup, I don't think it sets and holds my makeup as well as others. When I want a glow though, this is my go to! I use matte foundations for my combination skin, and with this I can s...

    The MAC strobe cream is very nice - i got the peach shade. Looks beautiful under foundation or mixed in with it. Leaves the skin with a nice glow!
  49. sample

    abby

    received a few samples a while ago, i will say it is a good product if you want to do a perfet make up but if you just lazy like me you will not use it everyday, it adds little shine and change a bit you skin's texture. but i will prefer makeup with SPF
  50. Glow!

    E

    Gives my skin the most gorgeous, bright yet natural, goddess-like glow! I highly recommend this, it’s worth the price!
  51. Omg

    Jen

    Stunning! Especially the gold lite, gives a gorgeous glow
  52. Dewy finish

    Krystal

    I love this under lightweight matte finish foundations. I find if I use a foundation that is too heavy, the dewiness doesn't really shine through. A good alternative is the L'oreal infallible primer.
  53. Will purchase forever!

    Kristy

    I love this product! I use it as a moisturiser on days when I don't wear makeup (literally maybe one day a week!) and it gives my skin such a gorgeous glow. My boyfriend last weekend said "you have the most beautiful skin" I was wearing the pink lite however did not tell him that. I said "thanks" hahaha! I do occasionally wear it as a highlighter but I have others I prefer.
  54. Beautiful dewy skin

    Michelle

    This stuff is dewy good skin in a bottle! I got the pinklite which I think is great for fair to light skin tones but really could work for anyone because its subtle and natural yet still gives you that luminous dewy lit from within look!
  55. Love it

    Emma

    Adds a healthy glow and also works as a nice primer. I also mix this with foundation for an extra glow. Wish ab stocked the redlite though, thats my favourite rosy glow
  56. My best friend

    Strobe queen

    This makes your skin look amazing so beautiful!! Will be buying heaps
  57. A nice dewy finish.

    Ren

    I really like this product as a primer. It is easy to apply and has a glowy, dewy and radiant finish!
  58. Staple

    Bronte

    This has been a staple in my makeup collection for years! Gives your makeup such a nice glowy/natural look
  59. versatile holy grail!

    Ash

    Wow, this product is seriously good. I use as a primer before studio fix or mixed in for a more sheet every day look and both ways feel so Luminous and everything stays put! even just on by itself with a little studio fix powder is amazing! and a little goes a long way. new fav!
  60. Lovely glow

  63. Beautiful, healthy glow

    Chai

    Creates such a beautiful, glowing undertone. Can make me look bright and healthy even on my worst skin days even on bare skin. I found it was best to use it sparingly and with caution on oily skin
  64. Amazing moisturizer

    Jess

    I’ve only tried Goldlite and Silverlite but they are both amazing! I have super dry skin, and the strobe cream is so nourishing and adds the perfect amount of glow. It is a lifesaver as it helps foundations not stick to any dry patches and it completely moisturizers them. I personally use it under foundation or sometimes mixed in with a foundation to sheer the foundation foundation out.
  65. Incredible product

    Kyra

    This product is amazing and has so many uses. Alone, or under makeup, it makes your skin appear to glow within. I mix it with my matte foundations for some extra glow. Love this product, in every colour!
  66. Beautiful glow

    Tanya

    The strobe cream is my ultimate holy grail product for whether I wear makeup or not because it is so gorgeous and gives the most natural glow which just makes the skin look super healthy. When I wear it under makeup I find my makeup lasts longer and applies smoother whilst looking dewy. Couldn't recommend this product enough. I also find used in combination with a powder highlight it'll give an ab...

  68. Glow booster

    Frances

    I use this on no makeup days when I want a little extra glow, otherwise it looks amazing mixed in with foundation. I don't particularly love it layered over foundations, so I avoid doing this.
  69. Love the Peach & Gold

    Elizabeth

    This product really does give a subtle, sun kissed glow. It lasts for ages and is really pigmented so only need to use a small amount
  70. A must for a perfect glow

    I love this strobe cream. It really creates the perfect glow.
  71. Beautiful

    Juliet

    Such a beautiful highlighter! Very pigmented and a little does a long way
  72. Great product

    Lizbeth

    I received this as gift and loved it. It's a bit pricey though and I think for summer it's going to make my face too oily.
  73. Stunning to use by itself and with foundation!

    jj

    The Mac stobe cream is amazing! I love using it by itself, it hydrates my skin and leaves it feeling fresh and glowey, however it is just as amazing to use under foundation! It leaves my foundation looking flawless with a dewy affect. I definitely recommend this!
  74. Beautiful

    M

    Love this under foundation. I generally use a pore filling primer first, then this. Gives a lovely glow
  75. great primer

    aron

    great primer, it has a nice shine to it as well so it changes your foundation finish! its very creamy and feels great on the skin
  76. Gorgeous product

    Dominique

    The strobe cream makes my skin look luminous on its own, however i’m not convinced it is seen under my foundation. It does work well as a primer though.
  77. Glow

    Emma

    I love to use this after moisturiser and before foundation. Adds a natural glow. I wish you had redlite available also.
  78. Awesome

    Lilly

    great to go under the makeup, i have naturally dry skin and it can typically look quite dry but this product makes it look luminous
  79. Holy Grail

    Laura

    I love this product I got a sample and have the larger version too and its just my go to under makeup on the top of makeup which doesn't move the product around, it has such a beautiful natural glow and is moisturizing but still very noticeable its genuinely one of my favorite products
  80. Highlighter and base cream

    Vanessa

    it works as both a highlighter and a primer cream. I wish it is fragrance free but overall it is a pleasant product.
  81. Hydrating but really doesn't do much.

    Crystal

    I use this under my makeup and find that the dewy-ness just disappears when you apply foundation over the top of it. I have worn it alone with tinted sunscreen and it looked great!
  82. Amazing glow

    olivia

    I love this primer! I don’t usually reach for primers very often but I do find myself reaching for this one! Even on days I don’t wear makeup after my moisturizer has settled into my skin I pop some of this on and I get the most subtle dewy glow. My skin looks healthy! Under makeup it peaks through got a nice glow and works as a great primer for my makeup. I’ve also used it to sheer down my studio...

    not made for oily skin. looks good for a few minutes then you start to look like a grease ball. a beautiful product despite making me look too oily. defs recommend for people with dry skin types
  89. Great product

    melissa

    Absolutely love this product. I use it for everything! I mix a little bit in with my foundation and it gives such a lovely subtle glow
  90. 3-4 stars

    Lydia

    I don’t dislike this but it’s very pricey when you can get better Luminisers. Under make up or even on its own I love the pinklite but it works out cheaper to buy the travel size.
  91. Lovely sheen

    CM

    I like this product to give a bit of a sheen and highlight. You can use it all over the face for a bit of a dewier look. Very easy to apply. Be cautious that it can be purchased in different colours though for different skin tones
  92. Love this product

    Rebecca

    Beautiful cream, lovely under make up however I mainly wear on its own for a lovely dewy glow, now one of my faves, highly recommend!

    Elisa

    I received this as a sample and loved it. Wearing it on your cheek bones give you an immediate glow. It doesn’t dry out because it’s so hydrating! Almost like a moisturiser!
  95. Amazing

    michelle

    Great to put under foundation for a nice glow. Even shines through after powder. Only a little needed
  96. Loving Pinklite

    Ashley

    I recently picked this up as a new primer but have found myself mixing it with my studiofix and double wear to sheer it down a bit for winter wear. It leaves my skin looking fresh and dewy whilst still wearing fairly matte products. The pink suits my undertones but I would be interested to try the other shades out and see what finish they give.
  97. Peachlite is my fav

    renee

    I tried this strobe cream out for the first time when I got my make up done instore at Mac. I’ve never considered a strobe cream before and I absolutely love the finish it gave my make up. I love this and it’s not a staple in my make up routine.
  98. Love it

    Lizbeth

    Received this as sample on my recent order and I love to wear it especially now it's winter and my skin needs a boost of glow. It is subtle and adds healthy complexion without weighing down my skin. Love it.
