The name of this blog is Bump, Baby C and Me. We have covered the bump period, I post a lot of posts on Albie so it’s about time you lovely people read some more about me and my likes. I thought I would start this feature with the wonderful Mac Strobe Cream, I know this have been a beauty bloggers favourite for some time but I have just discovered it and what can I say apart from I am a total Strobe Cream addict!!
Mac describes the product as the ‘ ultimate quick fix for the skin. Super-powered with potent botanicals; de-snoozes, de-stresses, moistens, freshens and boosts the look of dull, flat or tired-looking skin with a fully loaded vitamin zap and a mega dose of green tea. Brightens and clarifies with iridescent particles and antioxidants. Enhances the effects of light on all skin and in all lighting conditions from sunlight to spotlight’ It certainly does all the above! However you won’t find this in the highlighter sections of the Mac website, the people over at Mac have put this in the skincare category, although it is great for making your skin look perfectly dewy I do use it more as a highlighter than as part of my skincare routine.
Like all Mac products the packaging of the strobe cream is simple and elegant, white (almost pearlescent tube) with a matt black screw top lid. I mention that the packaging is almost pearlescent, the product itself really is, I love the glow and sheen that it gives me when I am wearing it. As you can see from the picture below it leaves a lovely effect when blended into my hand.
I use this a couple of times during my makeup routine (I told you!!! I can’t leave the house without it on) Firstly I mix a small bit in with my foundation and apply it that way, this really helps to give some glow, I will then apply to all my highlight points on its own, using my fingers, I add extra to my cheekbones, forehead, cupids bow, nose bridge and chin. I let this set for a second and continue with the rest of my makeup application.
Have you used Strobe Cream? I have a feeling this is a new costly addiction ……
