Makeup Revolution Ultra Strobe Cream | Review & Giveaway

The act of 'strobing' seems to be all the rage at the moment and getting that radiant complexion is simply a must! A lot of different brands are chucking their spice into the mix bringing out lots of hilighting products in all types and textures.

I have to say that whenever Makeup Revolution launch a new product (especially any to do with highlighting) I always get really excited. I know it's going to be great quality at an even better price.

 I had to get my hands on MUR's cream version which is officially called the Ultra Strobe Cream. Getting hold of this little beauty was not as easy as just popping to my local Superdrug and it seemed  to be sold out everywhere....with a little perseverance I managed to track a couple down.....So let's talk details.

Packaging wise I really like it, it is basic but I prefer the minimalist design. It comes in a squeeze bottle with a screw-click cap. The only downside was that there was no foil seal, meaning anyone could have squeezed it in the store making in not amazingly hygienic.

Apart from that I really liked the packaging, it also had a holographic sticker which called out to me as I am a sucker for anything shiny.

So the product can be used in a couple of different ways, you could use it as a primer or illuminating base. The texture is nice and light so it doesn't make your makeup feel cake,uncomfortable or cakey.

The consistency is actually quite thick when it comes out but it seeps into the skin seamlessly leaving a faint wash of shimmer behind. Don't run a mile at the word 'shimmer' its more of a healthy glow that makes your skin look like it has been dipped in candlelight. 

It provides a soft focus finish and is the perfect accompaniment underneath or mixed into your foundation to get that healthy & radiant skin.  Another massive plus is that this product smells divine! This obviously not essential but it was a lovely surprise and its one of my favourite parts of applying it... I am always overwhelmed with how much I love the scent of it. 

The second way I like to use it is as a liquid highlight on top of my makeup and it makes for a beautiful pop of radiance. I use it in all of they typical places, my cheekbones, cupids bow,brow bone etc just to enhance my features and make them a little more defined and it works a treat!

OK so I feel like I can swoon over this product forever as it is also amazingly priced at £8 but there is a teeny, tiny downside.....It is not the longest lasting in its category. I would say its effects start to wear off after around 4 hours which is not ideal but there has to be a compromise somewhere I guess.
