Fresh skin & lasting make-up - review of MAC Fix+ Spray

I’m going to say something shocking & perhaps slightly controversial.  Ready?  Brace yourself.  I don’t really get all the hype behind MAC products. 

I think I’ve always been a bit intimidated by the MAC counter, staffed with the uber friendly, heavily made up, cool kids.  I have to say, I now think I may have been missing out.  After researching their products & deciding that maybe I DO want to be a MAC girl, I ventured into one of their stores recently.  I walked out with a few new products, some great samples, and a new appreciation for their line. 

One of things I bought, at the recommendation of the salesperson, was Fix+ Spray. 

The product description from their website is as follows:

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!

Sounds great doesn’t it?  Well let me tell you, it is. 

I love this spray & have to restrain myself from using it too much – if there is such a thing.  I use this mainly as a setting spray, lightly spraying it on my face after I’m done my make-up.  I don’t know if it’s all in my head or not but I believe it truly improves the look of my skin and helps my make-up last longer.  It is also meant to absorb any excess powders on your face and give you that dewy look, and I believe it does!  The scent is lovely, light, and slightly floral with a hint of rose.  Since I’ve bought this spray I have discovered that people suggest other ways to use it, as a;

 - refreshing spray, after cleaning your skin or throughout the day
 - moisturizing toner, on clean skin in place of a toner
 - after shaving to calm & soothe the skin
 - mixing medium, spray on make up brushes to apply powder shadows
 - hair & scalp refresher

MAC Fix+ is available at any MAC counter or store and online at, retailing for approximately $22. 

Don’t let the price scare you off because a bottle will last you a long time.  Go to a MAC counter, give yourself a spray & try it.


  1. i have to get it! some are comparing it to evian spray water..but this one also makes dewy finish! and i'm trying to achieve that. i guess you don't use it quickly? how much did you use it until the day you bought it? :)

  2. Passing fancy - it doesn't take more than a few sprays and I'm still on my first bottle, which I bought in about August I believe. Evian is a refresher spray but not as much of a setting spray :)
