MY TAKE ON MAYBELLINE NEW YORK FACESTUDIO MASTER STROBING CREAM
Packaging: The strobing cream comes in a travel friendly and pretty looking tube. The nozzle is tiny which delivers the required amount of product.
Texture: The strobing cream is nothing but a pearly cream that blends in amazingly into your skin without looking streaky. I did not quite expect this product to look so subtle and natural without feeling greasy or sticky! This is just a cream version of the strobing sticks from maybelline.
Shade: Just like the strobing stick, these too come in 2 shades- Nude and Pink. Below is a summary on each-
Nude- This is a neutral shade that looks very natural on Indian skin tones. Will suit all skin tones.
Pink- To my surprise, this isn’t blinding like the strobing stick ‘Pink’ shade but goes on subtle just like the nude shade but with a hint of pale pink to it. Will suit all skin tones.
Fragrance: These do have some mildly sweet but plastic smell which I am not a big fan of.
How I use and staying power: To use, simply mix it with your foundation, use it as a primer or apply it on top as a highlighter on highlighting sides of your face.
I am not a big fan of liquid highlighters or strobing creams because I have combination skin and I only prefer dewy-matte products. I am so happy with the fact that these strobing creams blend in so easily and you won’t even feel it on your face! They look so natural that people won’t even know if you have applied anything for your ‘natural’ glow. Skin looks naturally healthy and glowy and does not feel sticky/oily even after hours. When you mix it with your foundation, it does not change the texture of your foundation and adds a healthy glow to your face! I am totally in love with this product and I am sure both the shades should go well with all skin tones and all skin types.
