I will be reviewing the MAC Fix+ in this post.

The Claims
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! 

The Reality

I use the MAC fix+ as a finishing spray after I've applied my makeup. The spray instantly lifts my makeup and gives me a smooth and dewy finish. I think it works particularly well when using powder foundation to make your face look fresh and dewy rather then matt and powdery.  

I like to spray fix+ over my face to freshen up and hydrate my face throughout the day, especially on hot days.  

The product also works well as a toner. It absorbs well into the skin, it does not dry my skin out and also smells lovely too.

I love the versatility of this product and also occasional use it with eyeshadow, I just spray a little bit on the brush and then use the shadow as a liner or to foil eyeshadow. 

I will point out that what this spray does not do is to make makeup last longer, this is by no means a setting spray, and it doesn't claim to be either. 

It is a bit on the expensive side in terms of price. I've never tried any similar products just stuck to the fix+ as I've liked it, so if anyone does have any cheaper alternatives please suggest them in the comments below.

The Price 
MAC Cosmetics: £13.50/100ml

The Packaging 
I do like the packaging and that I can easily spray it on my face. I like that you can lock the spray so that you don't get any accidents when its in your bag. 

The Ultimate Question: Would I Repurchase?

The Overall Score: 4.5/5

Have you tried the MAC fix+? What are your thoughts?
