REVIEW | MAC Prep & Prime Fix +

Hey everyone! Today I have a review for you on a purchase I made a few weeks ago. I've never tried any kind of makeup setting spray or makeup spritz but have been interested in purchasing one of them for a while. MAC's infamous Fix + is one I've heard a lot about and so I finally gave in and bought it from my local MAC stand. 
Today I shall share my thoughts and feelings on it - enjoy!


Price: £17.00
Where to Buy? Here.

So firstly, let me tell you a bit about this product and its intended use. MAC describe this product as "a lightweight, mineral rich finishing mist that refreshes the skin and finishes makeup." It is a clear liquid formula and is designed as described to create an even surface for makeup prior to application and also as a spritz to finish it. 

In terms of packaging, I am always a fan of MAC and theirs. The bottle is sleek and see-through which allows you to actually see how much you product you have left. The nozzle locks with a simple twist and the spritz itself is fairly fine which I like.


This product has a slight scent which is very pleasant and not at all that noticeable - especially when on the skin. As described, it definitely refreshes the skin and provides it with a cooling mist of application. The product dries into the skin within a few seconds and having applied it with full makeup on (including eyeliner and mascara), it definitely doesn't make any of it run or slip off.


Overall I'm really pleased and actually pleasantly surprised with this product. It does a fantastic job of priming my face for makeup as well as eradicating that cakey, powdery look we've all had. It provides me with a soft, smooth and moisturised base for foundation as well as a dewy finish to the skin when used as a finishing spray. 

I would stress however that this product is NOT a setting spray and isn't great for oil control. I use this in conjunction with a setting spray / or powder in the t-zone to eliminate oil build-up and I love the result. You don't need much - a spray is enough for me so for that reason, I think it's a pretty good deal for the price especially considering it's MAC. 

Have you tried this product? What are your thoughts and feelings on it if so?

Thanks for reading! <3
