The sloka you're looking for belongs to Matsya Purana, not Mahabharata.

The whole sloka is as follows (Emphasizing the part mentioned in question):

Matsya Purana, Adhyaya 159,

Namah Kumaaraaya Mahaa Prabhaaya Skandaayacha Skandita daanavaaya,
Navaarka Vidyutdyutaye Namostutey, Namostutey Shanmukha Kaamarupa. ||13||

Pinadwi nanaabharanaaya Bhartrey Namo raney Daarudaaranaaya,
Namostu teyrka pratima prabhhaya, Namostu Guhyaaya Guhyaaya tubhyam. ||14||

Namostu Thrailokya bhaayaapahaaya, Namostutey Baala kripaa paraaya,
Namo Vishaalaamala lochanaaya, Namo Vishaakhaaya Maha Vrataaya ||15||

Namo Namastestu Manoharaaya, Namo namastestu Ranotkataaya,
Namo Mayurojjwala vaahanaaya, Namostu Keyura dharaayatubhyam. ||16||

Namo Dhrutodagna pataakiney Namo Namah Prabaavapranataaya testu,
Namo Namastey Varaveerya shaalininey, Kripaaparo no bhava Bhavyamurtey. ||17||

Kripaaparaa Yagnapatim cha stutwaa, Viromirowam twamaraadhi paadyaah,
Yevam tadaa Shadwadanam tu sendraa mudaa santhushta Guhastatastaan. ||18||

You can read Matsya Purana original Sanskrit text at Vedic Reserve site. You can find the slokas from page no. 667

Here is an English translation by kamakoti:

Our Greetings to You, Kamarupa Shanmukha! You are Kumara, the radiant son of Maha Shiva and the destroyer of Danavas; your physical form is the glow of rising son and of the heat of Agni; you are appropriately adorned, the Army Chief of Devas; the dreadful on the battle front; Guhya Rupa, the abolisher of fear in Trilokas in the Form of a Child; gifted with broad and clear eyes; Vishaakhaa! Our reverences to you as the practitioner of Maha Vratas; you are a terror in battle fields although of pleasant visage otherwise; you have a peacock as your carrier and wear a Keyura / wrist bangles; the high flier of flags; the bestower of boons to devotees; the high profile symbol of courage and strength; you possess a Magnificent Form.This was how Indra and Devas extolled Skanda.
