Hit or Miss: MAC Fix +

It’s Hit or Miss Monday! I’m trying to be as consistent as I can with this series because according to my stats you guys love it! So please bear with me as I try to get new reviews for you guys up every week.

I’m sure plenty of you have heard of Mac Fix +, especially if you’re a beauty junkie. A lot of beauty vloggers and bloggers talk about it. So a few weeks ago, I decided to try it out and I meant to write about it sooner but wanted to get a better opinion on it. I’ve been using it for few weeks and now I feel like I have a better grasp on it. Before we talk about what I think about it, according to MAC Cosmetics, this product is “a lightweight, mineral rich finishing mist that refreshes the skin and finishes makeup. Helps create an even surface for a smooth makeup application.”

My personal hope was that this would help my makeup last longer. I heard so many people refer to it as a setting spray so that was my plan. However, when speaking with a MAC associate, she told me that it’s great for creating a dewy look but it’s not necessarily a setting spray. She said it may effect the longevity of my makeup but it’s not a sealer. Once I heard DEWY, I thought oh hell no because I’m oily skinned. She said for oily skin, it’s best to apply it before your makeup and primer. Therefore, that’s how I’ve been using it.

What are my thoughts? This product is okay for what it’s advertised as. It does help for a smoother application AND it definitely helps bring out the pigment of my eyeshadows when I spray a bit on the brush. I’ve used it a a setter once or twice just to see if it affects longevity, in my opinion is DOES NOT. It does give you that dewy look though. Other than that, I don’t really think much of it. I definitely don’t hate it so it’s not a MISS but it’s not something I have to have, so it’s not a HIT. It’s a wishy/washy product. I like it more for my eyeshadow more than anything. But I’m not in love with it and I don’t need it. If you have dry skin or love the dewy, J.lo look this product may be for you. But for me, it’s okay nothing special. So, I’m glad I got the travel size.
