MAC Fix+: Is it Worth the Hype? A Review

I caved in: I got MAC Fix+! After hearing so many positive reviews from using this setting spray, I just had to try it myself and see if it lived up to all of the praise it has been getting in the beauty community.


Now, for those of you who don't know what Fix+ is, it is basically a vitamin and mineral spray that you spritz onto your face to make your makeup look extra flawless. I don't know about you, but I would sometimes catch my skin looking a little too powdery, and it's until I tried this product that I no longer had the "cakeyness" issue. Here is the description of the product taken from maccosmetics.com:

An aqua-spritz of vitamin and minerals, infused with a calm-the-skin blend of green tea, chamomile, cucumber, topped off with the fresh, natural, energizing scent of Sugi. Adds radiance, finishes makeup. Spray it on. Skin drinks it up.



Not only does this mist feel wonderful when the mist hits my face (this will feel especially refreshing on a hot summer day), but it actually locks all the product onto my face and makes everything blend in together nicely. Any color on my face is instantly intensified (in a good way of course), whether it be my blush, bronzer, highlighter, eye shadow, eye liner, etc! I fan my face for about 10-15 seconds to let the spray dry, and I am left with flawless makeup!


The nozzle's design makes the product come out in an extremely fine mist - did I say it feels so nice? It also has a locking mechanism, making it very practical for travelling. When spraying, I hold the bottle 20-25 cm away from my face and spray 3 times: once directly from the front, and twice from the sides of my face. I prefer using it when I am done doing all of my makeup, but you can also spray some on after your foundation and powder application or even as a primer before moving on to the rest of your makeup.



This finishing spray has definitely crossed over to my holy-grail list. I'm actually mad at myself for not trying it sooner! Although it is on the pricier side at CA $25, it is totally worth it in my books! :)

It being my first makeup setting spray, I am very impressed, the difference in my makeup is astonishing - it brings everything out and makes my skin look super healthy!

  1. I love sprays and this one has more ingredients, it's not just water so it feels justified to me. I need to try it! xx

  2. I use the Boots minerals setting spray and it is very nice - and its only $10. I've tried the UD all nighter sprays and wasn't impressed.

  3. Awesome! I'll definitely give it a try as I have a major cakey face problem. I need to wear make up like 24/7 because of my job and I look like a clown most times :(

    Following you from the Social Mix hop

    Happy weekend!

  5. Ah, thanks for the review on this! I had been eyeing it for a while so this has just confirmed my curiosity!
    I'd like to try it out when I can invest in a bit extra savings later this year. I tend to have a bit of cakiness from the foundation.

  7. I have tried the Mac Fix + and it works beautifully. But am I willing to pay that much for setting spray?? I have DIY'd it by mixing 1 part glycerin and 3 parts distilled water. <3
