Investment purchase

Tuesday, 26 May 2015

I had always been hesitant to spend over R300 on a product when the benefits of the product seemed somewhat unclear to me.
However, moving to a drier climate and having a more draining job meant I was digging deep into my beauty budget for a solution.
MAC Strobe Cream is definitely the miracle solution for tired skin. I applied just a tiny drop above my cheek bones and around my eyes (especially the area between my nose and eyes, where my glasses rest and my eyelids), and I found I needed little else to achieve a luminosity that took years off my appearance.
The cream is light and easy to blend into the skin. It is very lightly fragranced and has a pleasant texture.
Considering how little you need, the 50ml is definitely adequately priced. However, the shape of the bottle is awkward and made of a particularly hard plastic. I was a little worried that I may squeeze too hard and land up wasting a large amount – but being extra careful (this was an investment purchase, after all), I managed to squeeze out just the right amount. I look forward to seeing whether this investment pays out over the long run.
