MAC Strobe Cream 'Pinklite'

After MAC Face & Body Foundation (10 bottles down and still going strong), this is the second best purchase I've made from MAC till date. I remember getting it as an impulse buy when I was on a 'make my face look glowy like those Instagrammers' kind of spree. Similar products that I now own are the NIOD Photography Fluid and the Iconic London Illuminator Drops (review for both coming soon!) but hands down, Strobe Cream tops the list for me. 

MAC now does Strobe Cream in a variety of shades, Goldlite, Silverlite, Redlite, Peachlite - you name it. I chose Pinklite. Firstly, because who doesn't love pink? Secondly, because I thought it would be the perfect shade to counteract all the yellow and green tones on my face. 

When I bought it, I really wasn't sure how I was going to use it. I took some inspiration from Farah Dhukai and Thuy Le on IG and used it after my moisturiser and below my foundation and it was pure heaven! My skin had never looked that good before. I may be a little late to the Strobe Cream bandwagon but if you've ever used this product before, you'll agree with what I mean by using it for the very first time. It instantly makes skin look supple and super hydrated like you've spent weeks doing a juice cleanse, religiously going for a run and occasionally indulging in spa treatments. 

Realistically, who has time for all that? Just slap this on when you want to feel good about your skin. Of course the effect is just amplified if you follow it with a foundation and the rest of your usual make up routine. It acts like a lovely primer and seeps through all the make-up to give this radiant, glossy filter that just melts all the product in place harmoniously. Having said that, if you have combination skin like me, don't be afraid to use this. It's not going to disrupt your make-up or add extra oil to the skin if you simply skip using it on the nose and overall only use a pea-sized amount. 

Since I bought it, there hasn't been a single day I haven't reached for this. It kind of gets addictive as it's a skincare-makeup hybrid kind of a product. You don't feel guilty using it on your off-duty days. Sometimes I use it twice while doing my make-up, dabbing just a tad on the cheekbones and the bridge of the nose. 

On my radar now is to try the Strobe Cream in Goldlite (and the ENTIRE Farsali range). A tiny voice in my head says this should be a staple for the winter months.
