This is actually under the 'Skincare' section on the MAC site listed as a moisturiser. I tried it out as this at first but found that when I applied the rest of my make up on top of it, I couldn't really tell I had it on. Then I tried applying it on top of my foundation and blush but that made the rest of my make up rub off. I was a little concerned at this point as it doesn't come cheap at £25 for a 50 ml tube and I didn't want to be disappointed by it. After a quick Google, I found that it seemed to work best mixing a blob in with your foundation.
MAC describes it 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."
I had asked for the travel sized 30 ml tube but as I don't live near an actual MAC store, the only thing available at the counter was the full sized version. The packaging is a hard plastic tube which you just squeeze to get the product out. Although I don't really find that I end up squirting too much cream out I do think it might work better in a softer tube like the smaller version or even with a pump just for that little bit extra control as you end up 'blobbing' it out rather than being able to pump an exact amount. Nevertheless, it's not a huge issue and I'm really just trying to analyse the packaging... rambling now!
It doesn't have any fragrance that I can smell and it hasn't caused my skin to breakout in anyway as I had read some people had trouble with this.
I do have normal/dry skin depending on the weather and I think you might struggle with or dislike this product if you have fairly oily skin as it might just highlight trouble zones on your skin.
However, it leaves my skin looking dewy and radiant without any hint of glitter particles, just a completely natural look as if my skin just glows with health (if only!)
Have you tried Strobe Cream? Do you have any other skin illuminators you like?
