I have very oily, acne prone skin but spots sometimes feel dry and tight because of this Canadian winter. I tried this product and I regret it. It did not set my makeup or make it look exceedingly dewy. The product quickly smudged and disappeared on the oily parts of my face and did nothing to add lasting moisture to the dry parts. The worst part is after one use I got 11 new blemishes! My jawline and cheeks were covered in tiny white heads, and my forehead had new black heads. The worst is that I got one new cyst. I have never had a product break me out like this! :( Reconsider if you have breakout prone skin.
Hydrating (not to make it last longer, despite the name) spray that adds glow to the makeup. Great to avoid the over-powdered look.
This spray leaves an amazingly natural result if I have put on too much powder and/or foundation. It's also great to moisten a damp sponge with and stipple over makeup for a natural just-like-skin result.
Unfortunately, this makes my skin break out. I've tried it so many times hoping it wasn't this one, but it can be traced back to applying Fix+ every single time. Another downside is the impractical pump - I wish it would dispense the product in a finer mist. Sometimes big drops can spray out which, if they dry in on top of the foundation, are visible.
All in all a good product, but since it makes me break out badly one lippie off for that, and one lippie off for packaging issues. I do recommend trying it out despite this, especially if you want to add a little glow to the skin.
Love this product.. it sets my makeup beautifully and leaves me with a perfect dewy glow. Also adds hydration back into the skin and helps to blend powders and liquids. Great for finishing your makeup. This product has many many uses and I will repurchase once I run out. The 100ml bottle I've had has lasted me a year already and I'm a little more than half way through with it but I do, do a full face of makeup almost daily. That's pretty good if you ask me!
LOVE this. I use it after I put on my makeup to"set" it and it kind of just makes everything more vibrant and really sets the makeup. It's also great for a pick me up in the afternoon making you feel refreshed. I even use it when I'm not wearing any makeup like before I go to the gym. It creates a subtle natural glow. Well worth the money!
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this product. I can understand why some are unsure about this product. let me convince you. My skin is dehydrated and very dry sometimes, also a bit oily on my forehead and cheeks.
Below is 32 reasons why you should get this ☺
1.I use this many different ways, I spritz during the day at work, using the 15ml,
2.between each stage of putting on a cream,
3.I also spritz on dryer areas of my body before using a body lotion,
4.I use it to keep my makeup dewy,
5.finish my makeup,
6.keep the cakeyness of 4+ powders and foundation, concealer, highlighter and whatever else away,
7.I spritz on a beauty blender and then put my foundation on with that,
8.if Iíve used too many powders with too much enthusiasm I will spray on a large kabuki brush and sweep upwards and into my skin lightly to get rid of excess product,
9.I spritz on a a stippling brush when using MAC's Face and Body and other foundations that can stick to patches of dry skin,
10. a refresher when at the beach,
11.on my nephew's dry forearms (get a dermatologist to check this out before you do it)
12.I spray on an eye shadow brush to re-blend shadows that have creased during the day
13I add to my cleanser a little sometimes
14.I add this to a dry shadow and make it a wet by spraying on a brush and applying,
15.I spray on a lip brush to be more pliable too,
16. I make my boyfriend use this, he feels like heís not doing anything too emasculating by spraying and not touching his face again,
17.if my liquid liner has dried up a bit I will spray a bit on there to wet it again,
18.If I need to thin a foundation I will spray this in a little bowl, if I need too thin out a lot I will use something like MACís Strobe cream or Clarinsís Beauty Flash Balm,
19.This can also be sprayed on a moist wipe thing for added oomph,
20.Itís also an amazing hydrator in flight or on a long trip when you donít have time to go through the 73 million steps we seem to put ourselves through to look good,
21.This is actually quite good on mild-ish sunburn
22.Speaking of sun, this takes away that sunscreen-y feeling that you can get sometimes from a drugstore sunscreen when applied underneath and over,
23.Good for busy women like mothers, cleanse, spray, sunscreen and moisturize only if you need too,
24.Stops flaking on a cold and windy day,
25.It gives a lovely dewy finish for a glowing, J-LO makeup look
26.Great for young girls first being introduced to makeup and skincare, its easy, quick, natural it works and is a great multi-tasker,
28.Great present for a person who has everything
29. When mixed with a concealer that can be a bit drying or used underneath while the skin has not totally absorbed it can fix the powdery finish
30. My 30th reason to buy this is the smell and the price. I adore the fresh scent it leaves for the 10 seconds it has been sprayed and the price, $27AUD for 100ml of heaven that you will never stop loving? Itís worth every cent to me.
31. This also contains soothing properties for inflamed skin
32. There are lots of vitamins and minerals so it cant be bad at all
Get creative with this, makeup is all about fun so experiment!
Way too expensive (in Australia at least) for something that does not work for me.
I've been eyeing this product for FOREVER and when i found out that they came out with a little travel size i decided to purchase it. The thing is about me is that i love purchasing mini samples/travel sizes of products so i can try out that product first and determine whether i love it or not from there. Alright back on topic, I'm so disappointed in this product. I have sensitive/dry/combo skin it's really weird. Lately my face has been super dry since it's winter and i just got on acne medication. The first time i sprayed this on my face it looked really greasy not dewy. It gave me too much shine and on top of that it actually emphasized my dark spots. Thank god for the travel size because i won't be repurchasing it!
I havent decided if I like this product or not. I apply it all over my face after my foundation and primer and it feels good but a couple of hours later i feel like my face is too shiney. I already oily skin so it isn't a good look at all. Maybe this product is suited more for dryer skin. I bought it because i read it takes the "powdery" look away and since i use foundation and powder to cover acne scars,I thought this would become a HG. I will try it out a few days longer to see if I magically fall in love but i am pretty sure i will be returning it.
Love Fix+ and a staple in my collection for many, many, many years. I don't use this to set my make-up, but as a versatile and multifunctional product to add antioxidants (cucumber, green tea, chamomile, caffeine, arginine), vitamin B5, and hydration to my skin. I use Fix+ to add hydration to my face if I need it before foundation application, to ride of the over powdered face, to dampen brushes or sponges for makeup application, during the day if my skin or makeup feels/looks dry, especially during the winter, and at night on occasion as a toner during my skin care regime. Definitely an item I can not live without.
I first began using Fix+ during this past summer, when it was outrageously hot and my skin needed a break from the constant barrage of heat and dry air. At first, I too thought it was merely just water in an overpriced bottle, as I didn't notice clear results until after a few periodic uses of it. However, after continued use of it, I noticed a sort of fluidity in the application of makeup that would otherwise appear powdery without Fix+. The packaging is pretty standard for most MAC bottles, which I appreciate and am used to. I particularly enjoy this product not only because of the calming sensation it brings to the skin, but also because it blends flawlessly with non-MAC products; furthermore meaning most of the ingredients in this synchronize well with others in my makeup collection. I would gladly repurchase this over and over, provided the formula stays the same and the cost remains doable.
