So you bought MAC Fix+.. now what?
I'm sure you've heard of MAC Fix+ by now, you can't go past a beauty website or make up artist without hearing all about it's amazing abilities. It's a sneaky little bottle and a lot of people don't know it's real purpose.
MAC Fix+ is commonly known as a setting spray to hold your make up in place all day, this is also the reason that so many people dislike the product. It is not a setting spray and it definitely won't make you make up last longer on your skin.
Fix+ is designed to 'fix' your make up, hence the title. It is a make up correcting spray, primarily used for heavy foundation users or those who like a powder foundation. It fixes imperfections or the 'cakey' look of too much make up. It's actually a genius product if you know how to use it correctly and are expecting the right things from it.
If you're like me and you like to set your liquid foundation with powder foundation for extra coverage, this is the product for you. When you spray it on your face it completely takes away all of that 'powder' look and sets into a nice, even, dewy (not oily) coverage.
It is also great for refreshing make up, especially if you have dry skin and find that your make up can look cracked or patchy during the day. A few quick sprays will rehydrate and refresh your make up without having to reapply anything.
Another great use is to even out make up touch-ups during the day, especially for those with oily skin who find that they're powdering their t-zone throughout the day, Fix+ will take away the 'cakey' look of powder.
It is suitable for any skin tone. For oily skin, close your eyes and use 2-3 sprays all over the face after you've finished applying make up. For normal and dry skin 3-5 sprays will be fine, start off with less, add more if needed. Keep your eyes closed for about 20 second after applying the spray and your make up is instantly glowing and fresh.
It can also be used over your arms and legs to rehydrate your skin during the day, in your hair to add extra shine and as a cooling mist on hot days for your chest.
You can also buy it in a small, purse friendly size to carry with you.
I love Fix+, I think everyone should own it, it's a fantastic product.
Disclaimer: I have worked with MAC on a professional level for many years and received a lot of my professional training from MAC. However I have never been employed by MAC and this product was paid for with my own money. I am not being paid for this review, all opinions are my own.
Animal Testing: MAC has always maintained cruelty-free production of products and is against animal testing. There has been some controversy over the past few months but MAC is still maintaining that they do not test on animals.
Some MAC brushes do contain animal hair. MAC maintains that the hair is is farmed ethically and cruelty-free.
