While in MAC the other day, I decided to pick up Fix+ because I have heard others really liking it and wanted to see what the rave was about. Oh Fix + how I love you! Mac fix + is hands down a must have for me, I can't apply my make up without it. On the other hand I know there are some people who love this product and there are some people who think it's a waste of money and don't like it. Honestly, this did the job for me, it completely gave me the perfect end result for my foundation with a beautiful air brushed finish. I lightly spray it over my face after all my make up is done.
If your skin feels more dry and looks dull especially in the winter spray Fix + over your face before applying your foundation and it will give you a nice dewy look. A lot of people have the impression that Fix + is a setting spray. It's a skin refreshing spray. Fix + is going to help your foundation to not look so powdery. It doesn't make your make up stay any longer then it normally would.
When I was at the MAC store, the MA said that those with oily skin should spray Fix+ on the face before the make-up, to help the make-up adhere to the skin. This will also avoid that shiny look on the face. If you have oily skin, use MAC Fix+ before your primer. And if you have dry/ normal/ combination skin, use Fix+ after the make-up. Simple!
Now the efficacy of Fix+ to keep make-up ‘fixed’ onto the skin, it works! Yes, my make-up stays intact for the whole day with this. Though I do need to touch up once in between around the T-zone with compact powder to keep my skin matte. It does keep the skin hydrated, and I love the mild fragrance.
What Mac Claims:
"An aqua-spritz of vitamins 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 make up. Spray it on. Skin drinks it up!"
Mac Fix + come in a clear plastic bottle with a lock system that has a spray nozzle. I love the bottle itself because you can just throw it in your purse and not worry about it leaking every where. The bottle is translucent and pearly white in color, and has a matte black cap, which can be twisted to lock or unlock the nozzle. The bottle has a spray-pump mechanism for dispensing the liquid. No leakage, no mess!
How To Use:
Hold bottle 12" away from the face and spray evenly. Use before or after make up. One bottle should last a long time, since you only need 2-3 sprays for the entire face.
I think this product does wonders for people with dry skin. I definitely do not think this is a must have for everyone, since everyone has different needs. For me personally I can't live without this stuff. I know there are some other companies that do make these types of setting/refresher sprays but I personally haven't tried them.
The one downside to the product is the price, but for me it's still worth it. In the end I think it's definitely worth a try. I would highly recommend this product!
