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.
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

  5. 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.
  6. 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!

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

    Ann

    My makeup looks dewy and healthy even though i use a matte foundation bec i use this cream
  11. 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
  12. 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...

  13. Very nice!

    Moni.B

    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!
  14. 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
  15. Glow!

    E

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

    Jen

    Stunning! Especially the gold lite, gives a gorgeous glow
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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!
  20. 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
  21. My best friend

    Strobe queen

    This makes your skin look amazing so beautiful!! Will be buying heaps
  22. 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!
  23. Staple

    Bronte

    This has been a staple in my makeup collection for years! Gives your makeup such a nice glowy/natural look
  24. 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!
  25. Lovely glow

    Jules

    I received as a sampleit gives the skin a nice natural radiance and hydrates the skin good . Highly recommend
  26. dewy dumpling

    I use after my moisturiser as a primer and i always am left looking glowy and gorgeous
  27. So glowy!

    ET

    Received this as a sample. I really like it. I use it’s a primer and it gives a lovely glow! Can’t wait to purchase!
  28. 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
  29. 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.
  30. 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!
  31. 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...

  32. Good

    Abbey

    These strobe creams are pretty good. Looks very glowy and pretty
  33. 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.
  34. 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
  35. A must for a perfect glow

    Emma

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

    Juliet

    Such a beautiful highlighter! Very pigmented and a little does a long way
  37. 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.
  38. 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!
  39. Beautiful

    M

    Love this under foundation. I generally use a pore filling primer first, then this. Gives a lovely glow
  40. 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
  41. 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.
  42. Glow

    Emma

    I love to use this after moisturiser and before foundation. Adds a natural glow. I wish you had redlite available also.
  43. 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
  44. 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
  45. 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.
  46. 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!
  47. 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...

    Ally

    This is lovely under my foundation but I wouldn't use it alone. Gives me a lovely glow
  49. My first primer

    Helena

    I have this silver and pink both. I love the silver one to give the glow and radiance to my skin and pink one to give the healthy tone to my skin. I absolutely love both. I am keen to try on different colours too.
  50. perfect for a glowy look

    Alice

    received a small version of this in the pink shade as a sample gives my skin a beautiful but subtle glow great under makeup or on its on easy to apply as well will definitely be purchasing this product

  52. Best for glowy skin

    Lynsey

    This is my 3rd bottle, love it so much. Use it under makeup and makes it look so glowy & beautiful
  53. avoid if you have oily skin

    monique

    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
  54. 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

  56. 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
  57. 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!

  59. A hydrating highlighter

    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!
  60. Amazing

    michelle

    Great to put under foundation for a nice glow. Even shines through after powder. Only a little needed
  61. 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.
  62. 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.
  63. 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.
  64. Awesome

    judy

    makes the skin look glowy under foundation but does get covered up under powder
  65. Subtle glow

    Krystal

    This gave a subtle dewy glow to my skin after applying it but I found it disappeared after applying foundation over the stop. I now just use it to sheer out some heavier foundations by mixing it in and it works wonders!
  66. Moisturiser booster and makes skin glow

    Alexandra

    This makes my skin GLOW! Perfect to boost my current moisturiser during winter. Don’t be afraid to apply it all over the face!
  67. Replaced my moisturiser and primer

    Ellie

    Love this product and has replaced my moisturiser and primer! Gives a nice subtle glow under the base.
  68. Not a fan

    Ali

    I was not a fan of this strobe cream. I found it was too shiny and did not look very natural. I only had a tester free from Adore Beauty but would not purchase.
  69. Wore it for my engagement party

    Jordan

    The make up artist used this on me for my engagement party and I loved it so much I bought it. It gives a nice glow, I use it as a primer under my foundation as it's also hydrating.
  70. Beautiful Glowy Primer

    Natasha

    I use this under make up as a primer. It makes my dry sling look dewy and healthy without being oily or glittery. It’s also very hydrating.
    I’m not sure about it making makeup last longer but with the finish it gives I don’t mind
  71. Beautifully radiant

    SS15

    I apply this product before my foundation and also as a highlighter, and it gives the most natural, light from within glow! It’s so easy to apply, not greasy, and looks good on my medium to dark skin tone. Absolutely recommend getting this!
  72. Dewy skin

    Tamara

    Love applying this product to my face before I apply my foundation. I find that it gives the skin the most beautiful dewy look, without looking too shiny.
  73. Lit from within look

    Amy

    This product is beautiful and makes the skin looks lit from within under foundation!
    It doesn’t make any of my foundations look different when placed ontop and really looks beautiful!
    Not too glittery and just the right amount of luminosity !
  74. Suuuuper dewy

    Taylor

    I am obsessed with this cream it makes your skin look and feel super healthy but it is SUPER glossy looking so not ideal for a hot summer day but so gorgeous for night time glow
  75. glowy and gorgeous

    katelyn

    this gives the skin the most gorgeous lit from within glow, i mix it with foundation and it makes my skin look radiant and glowing. i love this stuff!
  76. One of my favourites

    Chelsea

    So many uses for this product. I love using it as a highlighter or even putting on with my foundation for more glow and shine.
  77. Glowy primer and highlighter

    Jessica

    I love this as a great versatile product. I use it as a primer under makeup, and also as a liquid highlighter on the high points of the face Gives a lovely sheen to the skin. Wouldn't recommend for people with very oily skin as it may come across as greasy. A little goes a long way.
  78. So many uses for one product!

    Kristy

    I love applying this on my cheekbones and on my cupids bow when I don't want to appear too "highlighted" I use it all over my face as a moisturiser for no makeup days and I've even used it as an eyeshadow primer. I own more highlighters than I can count and this is in my rotation of highlighters I deem worthy. I am a little confused that people use it under foundation (Unless it's being used as a ...

    What a lovely product! Such a subtle glow to natural skin or under foundation, subtle but cute! I love it
  80. Glow lover’s best friend

    Juliet

    I loooooove this product. I use it while prepping my skin for foundation right after my moisturizer sort of as a primer. It also looks amazing on its own on no makeup days.
  81. Couldn’t say enough good things

    Joel

    My god, this is so incredible. This looks amazing under makeup but just stunning over your skincare! It looks like a natural dewy flush on the skin and keeps it looking hydrated and plump all day. The besssst!
  82. More of a light primer

    Melissa

    This product just wasn't for me I usually love mac products but my skin just did not agree with this. It irritated my skin and I had to discontinue use.
  83. SUPER PIGMENTED & GLOWY

    SOC

    Love mixing this with my foundation!
    It gives such a beautiful glow and is super pigmented - a little goes a long way!
    I sometimes mix with my sunscreen on days when I don't wear makeup just to give me healthy glow.

    I have the shade PInklite and will continue repurchasing.
  84. Great as a primer

    Jessica

    I have used this as a primer. It doesn’t do anything incredible but it is shimmery and brightening with some moisturising properties. Blended well with my foundation and wasn’t too oily.
  85. Brightening

    Frances

    Great to use under, over or mixed into your base products. I used the pinklite and it adds a natural bright sheen, but does lean towards a cooler/purple reflect so keep in mind if you have a really warm skin tone.
  86. luminous

    mel

    fantastic glowy product for multi-use. I've used it alone under foundation, mixed in with foundation, to highlight eyelids and cheekbones and even on the shoulders for a summery glow. even though it's pricey, it lasts forever.
  87. LOVE

    Maddy

    This highlighter is one of the best!! Only need such a small amount for blinding highlight but in the best and most natural way possible! The pigment is insane and it is super long wearing!! Absolutely obsessed - couldn't live without!
  88. so useful

    Catherine

    this is a a great multi use product. I can mix this in my foundation to create a very luminous look and its a great highlighter!
  89. Perfect glow from within

    Leila

    This is for if I'm looking for the perfect glow from within look - it makes my skin looking so luminous and dewy and leaves it feeling so hydrated. A definite favourite that I highly recommend!
  90. Lovely on bear skin

    Lina

    I love wearing this as a highlighter on bear skin. It provides a great glow that is natural yet completely mesmerizing. I've never tried it under foundation as I love a matte face but have heard great things about it providing a luminous glow when done so. Highly recommend!!
  91. Dewey and luminous

    Emma

    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 oiler skin.
  92. very glittery

    Abbie

    This is really nice as a creamy primer under a foundation to give that sun kissed glow look, really nice under light coverage foundation. I used this under full coverage foundation and it sort of just hid the glittery look so probably works best under light-med foundation. It is also very creamy so use it in moderation to have the best effect, and the different colours to suit different skin types...

  93. very shiny

    Abbie

    This is great as a base primer for a dewy or shiny make up look! it has little sparkles in there and when the light hits your face it looks so good, especially in photos. Its very light It spreads very easily on the skin and doesn't feel or look cakey. I use the Mac foundations on top of it and they go on flawlessly as if it were any other of their primers. Its nice to wear lightly with a mineral ...

  94. Nice but not special

    M

    Nice cream used sparingly with skincare and light makeup but has been outstripped by newer highlighters on the market. I've used the original light pink pearls for reference which I would mix with sunscreen and light makeup. It was moisturising and had a soft smell but given it is comodogenic I switched to something more natural (FYI: I did not experience clogged pores with this).
  95. Subtle highlights

    Kristy

    I use this for a subtle highlight on my cheekbones and I love it! A little goes a long way and it's so easy to apply! I love this stuff!!
  96. Striking!

    Emma

    Ever since using the ordinary’s coverage foundation in 1.0ns (which has silver highlight in it) i’ve been on the hunt for a highlighting option which used silver instead of the usual suspects like pink and gold, because silver seems to work so much better with my skin tone (i’m very fair, and for example I look better in silver earrings than gold - same goes on my face apparently!). I use ‘silverl...

    Evie

    I use this under my makeup, on it’s own, mixed with my highlighter to make it creamier, anything! It’s so versatile and makes your skin feel amazing as well. I use pink lite, which is great for my fair cool undertoned skin. Love!
  99. So good!

    Marie

    I bought this in goldlite and am so impressed. It gives skin a glowy sheen without looking obviously glittery or pearlescent (unless you look really close up). I've mixed into bb cream for night time and worn it under tinted moisturiser for day time. Love!
