OMG. This stuff is *incredible*! Let me just start by saying I'm not one to purchase anything gimmicky; everything in my makeup arsenal has to be practical. I'm not one to buy something just because its cute or whatever. That being said, this is definitely a product that *works* and feels *amazing*. I haven't been this excited about a product since UDPP and Fix+ makes me even happier! Okay, now on to the product itself. Adorable package, lightly and divinely scented. Sprays out a light and refreshing miracle potion onto the skin to do all these wonderful things: creates a luminous natural glow, uncake-ifies your MU, leaves your face comfortable, dewy, and gorgeous, "sets" your makeup, lightly moisturizes, refreshes the entire face. I spritzed in on my face at 10 pm when my MU had been applied at 8 am and it looked like I had just reapplied a whole new face (but better because never before had I been able to capture the dewy look before- I thought I needed a shimmer product, but no! Fix + is all you need for a glow without sparkle or shimmer!) I got compliments like, wow. Your skin looks great. And, you look really...pretty. Etc... This is a wonderful, non- gimmicky miracle product that I would rate higher than a 5 if I could. HG of all HGs. I did not know a few spritzes could make my skin and makeup look so luminous and lovely...thanks MAC!
I really love this stuff! I spray my face liberally with it after using toner and moisturizer. Then I use a thick piece of paper to fan my face afterwards (it feels soo good! lol!). I let it all soak in while I continue getting dressed and whatnot, then apply my makeup. I use it again (lightly) after makeup and it lessens the cakiness. ALSO! If I happen to shmootz my makeup during application, I just spritz it on a cotton ball and wipe it off. It's great that I don't have to use makeup remover, which is usually too greasy for my tastes. I bought it in the original packaging, which I don't really like because it lacks the black sleekiness of MAC, AND it gets dirty. But I noticed when I repurchased it, that the new packaging holds 50 mL less! What's that about!? Oh well, the new packaging looks a lot better! And you can tell exactly how much you have left!
This stuff is just a GREAT all-purpose product!!
Yeeeeeeaaah, no. I picked this up based on rave reviews and claims of "oil control." HA!!! I loved the look and finish this spray gave my mineral makeup - it really does transform powder from looking... powdery... to looking real, fresh, "dewy." The problem I have is that my oily, acne-prone skin has been, throughout a week of use, is greazier than ever. I have never used more blotting papers, and saturated them more thoroughly, in my life. Today I went without Fix+, and my face is thanking me. Though it didn't break me out, I don't need a $15 spray bottle of fancy water to make me greasier. I give up.
I've been setting my mmu with Fiji water in an atomizer with the same positive results, none of the negative.
I also bought this on the strength of the reviews on here and the fact my powders look very powdery on me! I like a semi-matte finish but not so my skin looks like its caked. This is just great for setting for my powders and making my make-up remain fresh looking all day long, even when I fall asleep for a mid-afternoon nap, it still looks good ;-)! itís a fine mist that shoots out quite powerfully so do not hold it too close to your face, MAC recommends 12 inches away. I also caught my eye make-up the first time I sprayed but it did not run and in fact help set it too. Its lightly refreshing and moisturising but not cloying on my oily/combination skin. After 8-9 hours my make-up still looked good but there was some shine breaking through, this is normal for me so I could not attribute this alone to the Fix+.
This is a great addition to my make-up routine and I think will be invaluable when travelling! I have never used a product like this before and was pleasantly surprised at the results, I was a bit sceptical I must admit!!
I bought this product based on the reviews here and I was not dissappointed. The spray gives a nice mist, not as fine as Evian but it doesn't come out in globs either. It also provides just a touch of moisture which is nice during the winter. It did help to set my makeup, I just had to give it about 30 seconds to dry. I sprayed it after applying all my makeup. The price was pretty good $20 CAD for 100 ml. This definitely help set my makeup for the day. At the end of the day my makeup still looked pretty good. I can see a difference on the days I don't use it.
I love this! When the MA first put this on me, I was amazed at how it made the powder look less cakey! It is great as a toner or a refresher for your face! It really does the "set" the foundation and it makes my skin look smoother! I use it both under and over my MAC Studio Fix.
I love this! Wonderful as a toner, makeup-setter, and general refreshing spritzer. I wish I had known about this sooner.
I COULD NOT LIVE WITHOUT FIX+.!!!!!!!!! The review from Stars629 below says it all. If I couldn't spritz this wonderful product on my face after applying double wear powder foundation or liquid DW foundation, I would be lost. Bought this product about two months ago and didn't use it at all. The last month I have used it on a daily basis. The bottle is still quite full. AMAZING STUFF! How did I live without it? All I can say, is spray it on your foundation and blush before you do your eye makeup...otherwise, your eye makeup will smear.
EDIT: I've changed my rating on this product (raised it) and said I would buy it again. I used it with makeup and boy is it fantastic! Using this over makeup is when this product really comes into its own big time! Which is only logical, since that was the original purpose of this product to begin with, to use over makeup. Used over makeup it makes my makeup look totally natural, like I'm not wearing anything, and it also confers this gorgeous radiant glow that looks like it comes from within. Like another reviewer commented when you use this over makeup you don't need any highlighter. I will always have this on hand now to use whenever I wear makeup. I can't for the world use this alone on bare skin though, used alone on bare skin it really makes me look greasy and oily. Definitely meant to be used in conjunction with makeup. = UPDATE = I tried to use just spring water and I really did NOT get the same results as I do with Fix+ so for those of you who were wondering....... Yes I think it really is worth the price of paying for a bottle of Fix+. When I used just spring water the makeup looked less powdery but as soon as the water dried the makeup looked powdery again, as well as streaky since it streaked where the water was flowing! :( Spring water also does not *fix* the makeup and keep it inalterable the whole day long the way Fix+ does. So if you like beautiful, impeccable long-lasting makeup, don't be cheap, you really will NOT get the same great results with spring water as you do with Fix+.
Incredible Product!!! I love this stuff- just repurchased (on my 2nd bottle). I use it with Mineral Makeup to give me a more natural look, I use it after powder foundations to tone down the powdery-ness, I use it in the morning when my face is dry, I spritz on my hand and rub into flaky areas... This stuff is simply amazing. Can't say how much I love it enough!! :)
