Review: MAC Fix+

"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!"

After hearing continuous good reviews about think product I finally brought, I have always resisted buying it because from just looking at it, it just looks like a bottle filled with water however it's much more than that - I'm in love! I've used it everyday since buying it and I'm so pleased I brought it.

As I have quite dry skin (especially in winter!) I find it difficult to find foundations that don't cling to my dry patches and make my skin appear drier, I personally prefer a natural and dewy finish in a foundation rather than a matte finish and I always prefer my makeup an hour or two later after I've applied it as it settles into my skin however with Fix+ I honestly don't have to worry about my dry patches or a matte face because as soon as spray it onto my face, it leaves my skin with a beautiful glow making me look refreshed and radiant - the dewiness it adds to my face is probably my favourite thing about it. This product is extremely versatile as it acts as a refresher and a setting spray. I can imagine this product being amazing in summer because when applied it's so cooling and refreshing. I would agree to an extent that it makes my makeup last longer but I can definitely notice a difference in the longevity of my makeup when I have applied it and when I haven't.

The mist is also packed with vitamins and minerals so it's good for you skin however, I haven't actually seen any improvements or differences in my skin since using it. The mist is fragranced, however the scent is light and I personally really like it, however, if you're not too keen on the scent, after spraying the mist on your face the scent seems to disappear. Less is more with this product, I find a couple of sprays on my face to be more than enough and I hold the bottle roughly 25cm away from my face and then spray, you should be careful not too spray too close as it will take more time to dry.

It is quite expensive at £14.50 (MAC's prices are rising every year - ridiculous!) however I've been using mine everyday for 2/3 months and I still have at least 70% left, so I know this bottle is going to last me a while but when I do run out, I would definitely re-purchase it. MAC Fix+ is available from MAC for £14.50 and this is for the 100ml bottle, if you're travelling and would prefer a smaller bottle or if you want to try the smaller version instead of buying the biggest bottle, a 30ml bottle is available for £8.

  1. I’m the same, I love the dewy look! Such a shame that you haven’t noticed too much of a difference in the longevity though!x

    1. I just love how healthy your skin looks! I know, but if you still love dewy skin and find makeup clinging to dry patches - I'd still definitely recommend it! x

  2. I really want to try this as I love dewy skin!

  3. I love Fix+! I used to also mix this with eyeshadows to make it into an eyeliner. Not used this in years. Will have to make a re-purchase!
