Great to stop your face looking too powdery and give more of a refreshed look. My face always ends up way too powdery as I have to set my face and concealer with so much powder to stop it from budging at work. Fix plus fixes this and gives me more a refreshed/dewy fresh look. Stops me from looking too old as too much coverage will do! Also I spray a squirt of this onto my sponge so my foundation is easier to work and blend in. Worth every cent and only 29 dollars! Had mine for a month and have used generously, and on other people too, and have used the tiniest bit!!! This is a product I'll be using for years
Love this product just wish it did more
This stuff is an amazing multi tasker! It's definitely a HG make-up staple. I use it to clean up fallout, prime my face in the morning, refresh my face after a long day, fix my make-up if I went overboard with the powder, I also use it to apply eye shadows wet and like a billion other things. It really does so many things and I think it's well worth the price for being such a multi tasker. It also has a nice fresh smell. However it does not set your make-up, if that's what you are looking for I'd use Urban Decay's All-Nighter.
I'm not sure if this really does anything to be honest. I don't notice a huge difference... But I still enjoy using it lol. Mind games.-_-
First of all, this is not a setting spray! So dont expect to spray this on and have your makeup last any longer. This is simply to refresh your makeup but can be used for many other things like locking in your moisturizer or just refreshing your skin without makeup. It has a fairly pleasant smell, and i like the fact you can buy this in travel size as well. I was a little on the fence about this product at first but now i do like it, just feel like its not an everyday product for me but i do like always having a bottle in my makeup bag!
Bought the MAC Fix+ spray a few weeks ago and it's a staple in my purse now! For reference, I have dry-normal skin, no breakouts.
- light, refreshing, moisturizing feeling with each spritz
- very fresh scent!
- Great pick-me-up after a long day, to refresh my face. My skin drinks it up.
- makes applied powder look dewy (I use MAC Careblend pressed powder)
- makes applied powder blush look dewy, and it lasts all day too! I spray a little on my cheeks after I apply blush. Now I get to use all my leftover almost-forgotten powder blushes.
- spray is temperamental (i guess you have to develop a technique to get a fine spray, and not gobs of water on your face at times). The spray actually leaks a bit when I turn the spray cover.
- first time I tried it, there was a slight itch on my face... but this went away.
- Does not make your products last longer on your skin (but MAC doesn't really claim that FIX+ will do that, i just thought i'd put it out there for those who expect this to be more of a setting spray)
Overall, this is great for kinda "melding" my makeup into one flawless look. Pricey, but if you have $ to spare, this would be a good purchase.
The reason I bought this spray is stop my face looking so matte and powdery and its really worked well also adding moisture to my skin. The packaging isn't great and its fairy expensive but besides that its a great product:)
I just don't get this product. I read so many great reviews on it, so I was super excited to try this out. My skin tends to get quite dry, especially during the wintertime, which sometimes makes my foundation look cakey and cling to my dry spots. I really wanted a product that could turn that cakeyness and dryness into a more natural, dewy look. This was what I was hoping the MAC Fix+ would do for me.
I've tried applying it straight on my brushes before applying my foundation, I've tried spraying it all over my face after my makeup application, and I've tried spraying it a few hours after my makeup application. I've even tried adjusting the distance between my face and the bottle.. No matter what I do, it just doesn't work for me. I look like a greasy mess, and my face just looks super shiny. As well, after spraying it, my foundation looks like it's completely melting off my face.
I feel like I paid $20 for a bottle of water that makes my face greasy. I still have a full bottle sitting in my drawer because I don't know what to do with it...
I've only tried this as a finishing spray because i have a strict skincare routine. As a finishing spray i love this, it will not do a amazing job at prolonging the wear of your makeup but it has some great uses. Great packaging, just little expensive although it does last long.
How I use- When i need my makeup to last long i firstly set my foundation with plenty of powder. This gives the face a very unnatural matte look. Because of this i then spritz the whole of my face with this once and then cover my T zone and spray the rest of my face a couple more times. This gives me a dewy look whilst keeping my T zone matte throughout the night. GORGEOUS xxx
I enjoy using this product, it makes my skin feel fresh and helps my makeup stay on all day. I only use 2-3 squirts of this and that's me sorted for the day! :)
