Begin Slideshow A good highlighter can perform makeup miracles — the ability to zap some life back into even the dullest, most hungover-looking visage, for example. And color correctors? Those are pretty magical, too. The hues can counteract redness, shadows, and more. If you’re a fan of both worlds and let’s be real, you’d be crazy if you weren’t , you’re about to be obsessed with the new MAC Strobe Creams.

M∙A∙C Cosmetics Prep + Prime Highlighter Info

Each palette has three products cased in a two-tiered mirrored square compact to contour, shape and highlight with one Cream Color Base 4. All the colors in this launch appear to be available for purchase individually with the exception of one of the Cream Color Bases in the Medium Dark Palette Naked Universe — so you may want to keep that in mind before buying one.

I think they make great bases for powder eyeshadow or as a blush highlighter. Onto the products in each palettes — the quality and texture of the products in the palette is the same as the individual options. These are emollient solid cream based products that gives a soft dewy finish of color or highlight.

If you have oily skin you may find they get a bit shiny by mid-day. For my normal combination skin they last all day without fading or budging. Sculpting Powders are available in several different formats as well. In the past they have been available separately similar to the MAC blushes. These are semi-sheer matte powders that are darker in color designed to create natural looking shadows.

I find these are best applied with a light and loose fluffy brush and also with a light hand — they go on the skin smoothly but as with any darker colored powder you want to lightly sculpt and build to create natural dimension. Shaping Powders are lighter in color compared to the Sculpting Powders.

They are are available individually in similar formats to the the Sculpting Powders with most of the Shaping Powder shades available in Pro Palette Form. The Shaping Powders have an ultra fine shimmer in them — but on my skin they have more of a satiny finish.

The shimmer gives the powders depth and dimension. Finish is semi-sheer but buildable. I often do add a bit of a darker powder or bronzer as a soft contour applied in loose soft sweeping motions around the edges of my face to add depth, but I rarely take the time to do an actual contour along the cheekbones, nose or eyes.

I do appreciate that MAC has launched these in travel-friendly packaging and that they have created four options for different skintones.

Onto swatches of the palettes side by side and then close ups of each option: For the Sculpt or Shaping Powders — the compact is on the small side so taking a large fluffy brush will most likely mix the colors. If you want more detailed highlighting or eye contour — any eyeshadow brush works. If you already own a lot of contouring products these will probably replicate many of the colors you already own. In terms of contouring powders go I think MAC is on par with the Marc Jacobs Beauty Instamarc Duos for quality and having a natural look — the Marc Jacobs powders are softer and have a more velvetly matte finish while the MAC is harder in texture with a slight shimmer in the Shaping Powders.

I feel the texture of the Marc Jacobs is more velvety and powdery and some of the light shades can almost be used as a setting powder for under eyes while the MAC has a more natural less matte look if that makes sense. Have you checked these out yet? Light sent as a press sample. Other shades purchased by me.

Brand new Strobe Creams too?! We can’t cope either. Yup, there are now four NEW Strobe Creams along with the existing original formula which will now be called Pinklite, thanks to it’s pinky-pearl finish. Here’s what these glow givers look like IRL MACcosmetics “This is a highlighter and a half. The frosty powder gives cheeks a shimmer but the lack of chunky glitter flecks keeps it looking cool as opposed to try-hard. The duo-chrome effect means that in natural light my skin had a champagne glow, but under a spotlight it had a rose-gold finish.
