Review Monday- Mac Fix+

Hey Pretty Ladies, 

                            Hope you all are doing great. Another week is ahead of us and its review Monday again. This week I will be reviewing Mac Fix+, from my haul from Saudi Arabia if you want to check that out click here . Well ive never owned any mac products until recently, since mac is expensive in Malaysia & Saudi Arabia, So I did a lot of research before deciding what I was going to get and Mac Fix+ was one of the few products that i picked up. 

So lets get on with the review and see if Mac Fix+ does what it's supposed to & is it worth buying...

For those of who don't know what Mac Fix+ is, it is a skin refresher & a finishing spray. It has a soothing moisture mist that refreshes the skin and finishes the make up.

The Packaging

I love the packaging, the bottle comes with a spray nozzle which can be twisted into a locked position and i take this with me to uni and hasn't leaked. And the top can be twisted off in case you want to transfer the product into a different bottle.

    The top              

The Ingredients 

Water,Glycerin(Moisture retention), Butylene Alcohol,Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber for anti inflammatory properties), Fruit Extract,Chamomilla Recutita Extract (To Calm and Sooth skin), Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract (Antibacterial properties), Tocopheryl Acetate (Heals the skin),Caffeine (Simple plain caffeine), Panthenol,Arginine,PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil,PPG-26-Buteth-26,Fragrance,Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol.

The Review

What Mac say's:
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 make-up. Spray it on. Skin drinks it up.

MY Review:

When i first prayed Fix+ didn't like the smell, it smelled like a floral sent but after the second spray i couldn't get enough of it. It felt so fresh and refreshing, i am actually addicted to it now. 

The mist from the bottle is very fine and soothing, although when sprayed up close your face becomes sticky, not sure why but i suggest spraying it about 12" away from your face since this distributes the product evenly.

OK here is the thing this works perfectly as a skin refresher, but not so much as a setting spray. But this product is perfect to Spritz on if you think you have over powdered, what this does is it gets rid of the excess powder so you don't look cakey. What i do is i spray fix+ on a cosmetic sponge and dab my foundation all over, this give you a flawless finish.

Now coming to the factor of if this product is worth the money. Well if it worked as a finishing spray i would say yes, but just as a skin refresher not so much, i could just buy avene spring water for just 17 bucks instead of spending 76 bucks on the same thing from mac. Although fix+ is a multipurpose product, it is a luxury everyone cant afford.

How i use fix+

- I spray this as a moisturizer before applying my foundation, what this does is since fix+ contains glycerin which has moisture retaining properties, it keeps moisture trapped in the skin and helps to keep your face moisturized all day long. I have oily skin and it does not make my face look oily.

- As a skin refresher.

- As a toner if you have dry skin this is perfect. Its great for oily skin as well.

- I spritz this on after applying powder to get rid of cakeyness. 

- I use this on a cosmetic sponge to apply my foundation. 

- I use this as a mixing medium for loose pigments for easy application and gives the pigment a creamy texture

- When i use this with some shimmer eye shadows it give it that extra metallic effect.

- When i feel as though my skin looks cakey in the afternoon I spritz this all over and re apply my foundation or powder foundation.

Extra info

- Its good for people who suffer from Rosacea, Eczema or dry dehydrated skin as many contain calming ingredients.

- Don’t spray fix+ directly into your eye shadow or foundation when the product dries the surface becomes hard and it will be prone to bacterial contamination.

In a nutshell


- Great as a skin refresher
- can be used with foundation for a flawless finish
- can be used as a toner 
- can be used to get rid of cakeyness
- as a mixing medium for pigments
- great for people with dry skin


- Cant be used as a setting spray
- The price

I would rate this product 8/10

And i would re purchase this again and i would recommend this product to everyone. But if your looking for a finishing spray this is not the product for you.

Price: 76 RM/ SAR

Quantity: 100 ML/3.4 US FL OZ
