MAC Strobe Liquid
Advantages: Easy to use, Healthy looking skin.
MAC is a relatively newish name in the cosmetic industry and they are more geared towards the fashion world, often providing the cosmetics on run ways and fashion shows. It has only be more recently that they have focused their attention on the average person. I wouldn't be surprised if many of you hadn't heard of them before, hopefully this will tell you a little more.
MAC are known well among their groupies to sell high quality, innovative cosmetics, and this Strobe Liquid to no exception.
Basically, Strobe Liquid is a fancy name for a highlighter and it gives your face a natural healthy glow where and when it is applied. The liquid is pearlescent in colouring. It is a smooth cream and on a scale of 1 to 5, If 1 is like water and 5 is like foundation MAC Strobe Liquid would be 3.
I personally use it in a number of different ways:
To just highlight- A single pump onto the tip of your finger is usually more than enough, and then OVER your make up apply lightly onto the cheeks lightly spreading. This leaves a healthy radiant looking glow without looking shiny or sweaty.
As a base - If I'm having a particularly bad skin day, after moisturising but BEFORE applying any makeup I take a few pumps of the strobe liquid and use all over my face, this not only leaves a healthy glow to the skin without over doing it, but reduces the appearance of skin imperfections. Frequently I just us this on its own as it just looks so darn good.
The liquid is absorbed into you skin really quickly and as long as you don't use too much require very little rubbing.
Using Strobe Liquid can seem a bit of an alien thing to do, but once you've applied it a few times and got the knack, it is easier than applying a foundation as you don't have to worry about it going streaky or 'orange' (Yikes)!
I can't comment on it suitability for sensitive but I have had no issues my self.
It is sold in a 50ml bottle with a price tag of £21, ouch right? I have had the same bottle for over a year and I use it on a daily bases so I think it is great value for what you get. The bottle itself has a pump on the top which I have never had any problems with, and can also be 'locked' so not to be pressed down by accident. As I just said, I've had my bottle for over a year and it has never dried out or changed consistency since purchase.
It is a top quality product and I have seen it on sale at Debenhams and Harvey Nichols. It is also sold through MACs official web site:
and that is probably the easiest way to find it - there is also a store locate function on their site.
So overall I would definitely recommend MAC strobe Liquid to any one who wants a natural healthy glow. It is a religious part to my make up routine now and although seeming a little weird at first It has won me over hands down.
Summary: 5 Stars! 100%! 10/10!
