MAC Goldlite Strobe Cream Review and Swatches

February 6, 2017

Besides the new liquid-powder highlighters, M·A·C Cosmetics introduced extended shades of its iconic Strobe Cream over the winter.

MAC Goldlite Strobe Cream


Super-powered with nutritious vitamins and a mega-dose of green tea, the Strobe Cream is a moisturizer that boosts the look of dull skin and luminizes with iridescent particles.

There are 5 shades available – Silverlite, Goldlite, Redlite, Peachlite and the original, now named Pinklite. For my NC25 skintone, I decided to go with Goldlite (cool gold shimmer) and a to-go size of Pinklite (icy pink shimmer).

On my dehydrated combination skin, the creams added just the slightest bit of moisture (using a moisturizer underneath is recommended if you are on the drier side) but a WHOLE lot of radiance. My skin gleamed and gleamed in an ethereal-but-not-greasy way and unlike MAC Prep + Prime Natural Radiance Illuminating Base, the glow was still visible even after I applied a cushion foundation on top. To really enhance the effect, you can also dab the strobe cream sparingly over makeup as a finishing touch.
