Mac Fix + Review


This is a long overdue review, I know. I was curious to know if  Mac Fix + lives up to all the hype, and now I do know.

What is MAC Fix +? 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!

Quantity ~ 100 ml / 3.4 US fl oz.

Price ~ Rs.900/-

Review
Likes ~ I love how fresh it smells. It smells like all those ingredients together.It cools down my face and it is like a drink of water to my skin right after cleansing. I also spray my brush with it before dipping it in pigment- no fallouts that way.
It does fix makeup, in a way. My face always look kinda glossy after it. It intensifies the look of eyeshadows a little, which makes sense since the same happens when you apply powder eyeshadows with a wet brush.
I love the bottle. I might keep this for other face sprays.

Dislikes~ Because my skin is on the oily side, it can make it look too shiny and emphasizes my pores, especially in photos with flash. I used it in this LOTD 
It is not inexpensive (Gawd! Can you imagine what the hubs has to say about it?! You bought water for 900 bucks?!!!)

This could be an awesome product for those with dry skin & for those who chase after the dewy look, but I can live without it. The Delhi heat gives me enough dewiness already. Had it been any other less popular brand than MAC, I think very less people would pay 900 bucks for this #justsaying.

How I use it now ~  Since I don't want to use it over makeup in the daytime, I use it for night time to set my night products. I spray it over my night creams and serums. I also use it  instead of toner sometimes.
*If I use it over makeup: I tilt my head up, hold the bottle at a 90 degree angle under my chin, spray it in the air above my face and let the mist fall on my face. This way my face doesn't get too wet.

Repurchase? Nope. I'd rather buy a lipstick.

Rating ~ ♥♥♥♥♥ 3.5/5

  3. hahaha! i was supposed to get this but got mac's charged water instead because the SA couldn't tell me what the difference was. it also seemes that charged water is good for the skin and were at the same price range. i am loving it because it's summer in my country and i use it as a facial mist whenever it's super hot! =)

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
