Never will I forget the moment I fist laid eyes on MAC Strobe Cream. I remember just thinking ‘oh my goodness, a strobe cream’. I mean, there was something about the word strobe that completely and utterly captured my imagination. I had visions of being able to be spotted from outer space. It was such an appealing concept!

Of course I bought it, and a life long love affair with highlighting ensued. There are times when I have been more obsessed and others less, but right now, highlighting is huge. MAC is celebrating having invented the strobing concept (that took the beauty industry well over 10 years to pick up) by adding new shades of the iconic product Strobe Cream.

MAC Strobe Cream New Shades

The new  MAC Strobe Cream shades have been tested backstage at Fashion Month for a couple of seasons and it was originally thought that they’d only choose one new shade. The good news is, there are going to be four new shades:

  • Silver
  • Rose gold
  • Peach
  • Red

The red sounds pretty crazy doesn’t it? But I’m told this is actually a coppery tone which I definitely like the sound of. Apparently peach was most popular backstage, and I can’t wait to see that, but I don’t think I’ll be alone in my excitement for Rose Gold! A MAC Strobe Cream in rose gold! I think I may have dreamt of it once!!

I don’t have an exact date, but the new shades will launch later this year. I will update as soon as I can. Follow me on Instagram for beauty updates.

  1. You’re far from being the only one excited about Rose Gold! Ever since I was a kid I’ve been fascinated with rose gold; it always seemed so mystical for some reason. Now that I’ve become a skincare/beauty junkie I love using any kind of rose gold highlight because it compliments my pink-toned skin and copper-blond hair incredibly well. It makes me feel so confident and powerful and, after all, isn’t that what beauty items are meant to do?

    1. you can use them in a few ways – i used to use my to highlight, but you can mix with moisturiser for glow, or your foundation. It is really good on the body too. Nice down the centre of the legs x
