I’m as sure as I can be that the forthcoming MAC Redlite Strobe Cream is going to be a sell-out. I saw this being tested back stage a couple of seasons ago and just knew then that when it hits, it will fly!

I first saw the new Stobes being tested at the Jean Pierre Braganza show in September 2016 (above) so it’s taken all this time for them to become a consumer product. I’m not so interested in Goldlite – there are so many gold highlighters in many versions around, but Redlite is another story.

You can see that they’re markedly different in tone – all the same smooth cream application as usual Strobe, but that red shift!

It’s something more than a rose-gold although there is a gold element to MAC Redlite Strobe Cream – we’re talking degrees of shift here but while rose-gold can go a bit coppery this one seems to stay a truer pinky/red. It also greatly depends upon the light you’re in. When I swatched these yesterday and there was sunlight it was much more generous with the red hint than it is today when it’s cloudy.

Goldlite is a pale gold – more of a white gold than a yellow gold and very pretty.  Joining MAC Redlite Strobe Cream and Goldlite will be Peachlite, Silverlite and a rename of the original strobe, Pinklite. They’re HERE for £24.50 each.
