Review: MAC Fix+ - a spray for your face

This is a review of the MAC Fix+. This is a very popular product, so you may be very familiar with it already!



What it does: (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!

Price: $20/100ml

Uses: Contrary to popular belief, this product is not intended to help makeup last longer. It can be sprayed onto skin after makeup to make it look less powdery. I also spray it onto my foundation brush so that it absorbs less foundation.

Pros:
  • The cap can be locked so that it does not accidentally spray.
  • This product sprays out in a very fine mist.
Cons:
  • I think $20 is very expensive for a product which just settles makeup.
  • I loved the spray bottle, but it cannot be refilled! *EDIT: it CAN be refilled!

Notes: remember that you can Back to MAC this container!

Would I repurchase?: No. I can easily substitute distilled water for this product. I do really like the container!

Hope you enjoyed this review!

xoxo, K

  2. The bottle is quite expensive if it can be substitute for distilled water. 

    If you pull the top cap hard enough does it come off?

  7. Thanks for the review! I should really consider a makeup fixative here in Muscat, due to humidity!

  8. Have had a passing interest in this product but will now definitely skip it. Definitely not worth the money for what it does.

  9. The top of the bottle can be taken off by simply twisting it counterclockwise :)

  10. Actually this is a good point. I always thought this was a fixative but never noticed that it helped particularly to fix anything so stopped bothering using it.  It is great for wetting the foundation brush before use though, but that is, like you said quite easily replacable with some distilled water, which is a hell of a lot cheaper!

  11. Wanna great dupe for Fix+?! Hehe.. I use the pink bottle of HADASUI water! I swear it's the exact same thing, & only abt $10USD for a lil over 14oz! I just reused my Fix+ & MAC Charged water spritzer for the container since the spray comes out nice & fine. But I also put some in a travel sprayer for my purse!

  12. I think that can make the makeup have a quick and nice finish after application and also give a seal to it.Nice product which I did not know about.

  13. Now that you mention it, I completely agree that Hadasui is a dupe! Thanks for mentioning that!

  14. "Fix" is a misleading name, isn't it?

  15.  For some reason, I couldn't get it open for the longest time! It even came apart!! But I tried again and it did open. The blog post is edited now!
