MAC In the Spotlight Collection- Photos & Review!

Beauty, MAC

Hey Everyone! Today’s post is all about one of MAC Cosmetics‘ newest releases… best thing is that these products are permanent which means you don’t have to run out & buy them right now. Introducing the In The Spotlight Collection featuring Strobe Cream & Extra Dimension Skin Finishes, quite perfect for all your strobing & highlighting needs. If you want aliens to see you glow from space, you’ve found the products you need to make that happen. If this sounds like you, keep on reading!

MAC Strobe CreamI’m sure many of you have heard of strobe cream before, but MAC has renamed the original strobe cream to Pinklite and has added 4 new shades! I never really knew what strobe cream did or the technology behind it; I just knew that I loved using it & felt a dramatic difference. However, I’ve got the low down from MAC. Strobe Cream is “super-powered with potent botanicals, antioxidants and iridescent pearl particles. Strobe Cream de-stresses, de-snoozes, hydrates, fresher and boosts the look of dull, tired-looking skin.” Can I get a collective YES?! MAC Strobe CreamWhen I first started doing makeup on clients several years ago, I kept hearing that I needed Strobe Cream in my life so I went off & purchased it & it’s been a staple in my kit ever since. You can take dry skin & bring it back to life within minutes. I always remind my clients that in order to have a “flawless face” or “perfect base” you must take care of your skin and remember to moisturize everyday.

You just get that amazing “glow from within” and you can also wear it alone on a no makeup day. For the past two weeks, I’ve been applying the strobe cream (after applying sunscreen) as part of my everyday routine– & then apply foundation & concealer. So many compliments I’m in love!!

How you decide to use the strobe cream is all up to you, but I will give you a few ways that I’ve been using them!

  • you can use the strobe cream as a daily moisturizer
  • apply your sunscreen, apply strobe cream, & then apply foundation
  • mix foundation & strobe cream together // mix tinted moisturizer & strobe cream
  • you can also use the strobe cream on your shoulders/ décolletage for a subtle, yet sexy glow

Overall, I am so happy with the strobe creams & the extra dimension highlighters! MAC did an AMAZING job with the formula! They are absolutely stunning on the skin & very blendable & buildable if you will. The longevity was about 8-9 hours before it started to fade without using a setting spray, & with the use of a setting spray lasted me about 11 hours– a crazy school day… 8am-7pm with compliments about my bangin’ highlight. I also love the intricate designs on the pan, definitely didn’t want to use it at first since they’re so pretty in the pan!! The finish is so smooth & when paired with strobe cream, it gives an even more intense glow!

    I really enjoyed this review! I think I will have to purchase double gleam because it seems the most wearable every day and it looks so good on you. I saw the other swatches on the @maccosmetics IG account.
