This must be one of the most well-known products ever: The MAC Cosmetics Prep and Prime Fix+ setting spray. Every makeup lover knows about this and I think most of the makeup lovers have ever owned one. This setting spray is a hit and MAC knows it. So they’ve created a couple of Prep and Prime Fix+ with different scents. Is the formula still the same?Does it smell nice? I’m answering these questions in today’s blog post!
Right now, there are 4 different MAC Cosmetics Prep and Prime Fix+ setting sprays. The original one, a rose-scented one, a lavender scented one, and a coconut scented one. The last one is the one I got since I love the smell of coconut. All four bottles contain the same amount of product and the same formula. The only difference is the scent.
MAC Cosmetics Prep and Prime Fix+ with Coconut scent
I started using it as a primer, which I don’t know if a lot of people use it for the same purpose. A lot of people in the beauty community use this to wet your brush before applying eyeshadow, as a setting spray or to refresh your makeup.
I have to admit I understand why everyone loves this product, it’s really nice and the coconut scent is amazing. The scent is not really overwhelming so that’s good. I spray the Fix+ before I start doing my makeup and it really makes my makeup more flawless. Besides using it as a primer, I like to use this to wet my brush or sponge as well. I also grab this once in a while to use it as a setting spray. It’s very diverse as you can read.
This is what is stated on the MAC Cosmetics website:
A lightweight mist of water packed with vitamins and minerals, infused with a blend of green tea, chamomile and cucumber to gently soothe and refresh the skin. Gives an instant boost of hydration while delivering a soft sheen to refresh and finish makeup. This holy grail of hydrating mists can be used with other products in near-endless ways – to sheer out foundation, intensify colour, improve and extend the wear of makeup, or moisturize and soothe tired skin. A delicious twist in a permanent romantic rose scent, calming lavender scent, or creamy coconut scent.
I definitely agree with them saying it’s a lightweight mist and refreshing the skin. However, I haven’t seen the soft sheen myself. I think it’s hard to tell if this Fix+ is really hydrating and moisturizing but it’s not drying so that’s something I guess lol. Overall, it’s a good product and I love using it to wet my brush. It makes my eyeshadow pop a lot more.
As you can tell, I almost run out of my Fix+ so I already bought a new one! If I buy a replacement than that’s a good sign.
