Not every individual is blessed with flawless features. The power of makeup lies in its ability to hide the flaws and highlight the best feature you possess. I love makeup because it makes me feel confident. Glowing skin is the dream of every makeup lover. Highlighters are mainly used to create an illusion of glow. Now, blinding highlighters are quite heavy duty for everyday use. That’s why the concept of strobe creams come into the picture. So, What is a Strobing Cream? Strobing Creams are highlighter like creams that are expected to provide muted and natural glow to the skin. It is ideally a lightweight cream suitable for both everyday makeup and party makeup. Today I am going to share my views on Maybelline Master Strobing Cream Nude.
Maybelline Master Strobing Cream is a illuminating highlighter with micro pearl liquid formula. It adds glow to your skin and creates the radiance from within look.
The ingredients were mentioned in the outer pack. I have thrown it away so can’t show the ingredients.
How to use the Maybelline Master Strobing Cream?

Maybelline Master Strobing Cream Review
Packaging: This Strobing Cream comes in a black squeeze tube. The tube is tiny and very sturdy. It looks almost same as Maybelline’s small Fit Me Foundation Tube. The product is very light-weight so be very careful while squeezing. If you put too much pressure, a lot of product will come out. I once made this mistake and that’s how I wasted some product. Otherwise it’s a good packaging. The size fits easily in most of my purses so I often take it with me for touch-up.
Shade: Maybelline’s Master Strobing range has two shades in India. One is pink and the other is nude. I bought the Nude variant as it has warm-neutral undertone which suits my complexion. This particular shade works across many skin tones. It looks equally good on light, medium and dusky Indian skin.
Texture: The texture of this strobe cream is extremely light. It is a cream which sets into a perfect matte finish. It does not have chunky glitter. The illuminating particles are minuscule. That’s the reason it creates natural looking glow. Once you learn to apply it in correct amount, you can’t even feel there is something on your face.
Fragrance: It is a fragrance free illuminating cream.
I will begin my review by saying this is one of the jewel products from Maybelline. Specially those, who like ‘daily glow’ kind of look more than ‘it’s on your face’ kind of looks, this is certainly a must. This strobe cream can be used before or after foundation. I already have oily skin so I don’t use it at the time of priming. I use it for highlighting the cheek bone, chin, forehead and nose at the end. This is a creamy product but it sets within 3-5 seconds. After that blending becomes tough so I work with it in small sections. The illuminating particles are very small; you can’t even see them with bare eyes. That’s why the finish looks extremely even.
For subtle looks, just a drop of product is enough. For a glam look, I go over another time to increase the glow. The best thing with this is, it doesn’t highlight the textures of the face. I have large pore issues still my face looks even and natural with this. This subtle highlighter does not create annoying flashback in pictures. So, this is my staple product for evening outs or occasions where lots of flash photos will be taken. I sometimes use it with my regular moisturizer, it gives me a ‘glow within’ type look.
