MAC - Strobe Cream

Posted by Rica Francia at 10:21 PM

I got this as a freebie when I bought my MAC Blush Ombres from the Spring Colour Forecast last April. I find MAC quite generous when it comes to samplers because this sampler that I got right here is 30 mL in size. Imagine, 30 mL in size! I bought Benefit's That Gal before and it's just around 20 mL? or 10? I can't remember, but this one is even more!

Anyway, let's continue with the review. As the Sales Assistant from MAC told me, this is like a primer. Use this after your skin care routine, before your foundation. And so, I did. It's in a cream form, in pearly white color, with a very good scent. One thing that turned me off is that it's very sticky when applied into my face. As you guys have known, Hong Kong is a very hot and humid place whenever it's summer time. Best advice for makeup lovers?! Go light. Light on makeups. And this primer from MAC? Well, I can feel that it's very thick when it's applied on my face. About the staying power of this, I think it's ok... I retouch on a whole-day out I think once or twice only (I have a very oily-combination skin). But I love Lavshuca's makeup bases better than this one.

Good thing I just got this as a freebie! I don't think I would buy this for myself. But nothing beats my Benefit - That Gal love. hehe!
