M.A.C Cosmetics Prep + Prime Fix+ (Shimmer)
Okay, so, I liked this at first. But not really anymore. First off, After years of using the regular fix+ I decided to try this and realized...there are soooo many other new setting sprays out there with better sprays!!!!! The fix+ bottles' spray is sooo stiff compared to other brands and it does not mist well when it sprays. It just squirts out. Well, now that I got this shimmer one...I have an issue with this. This didn't happen at first, but now that I am almost done with the bottle - I noticed that all the glitter that is left at the bottom....it sprays out in chunks now. So now when I spray it, the glitter is clumped up on my face no matter how much I shake it before. And believe me, I REALLY SHAKE IT HARD. So I basically walk out with chunks of gold shimmer on my face. YUP. I will not repurchase ever again. In fact, when I am done with this I will buy a new brand with a better spray nozzle! Sorry, MAC.
I love the pink lite fix plus! I have very dry skin and was looking for something to give me that natural glowy boost! I was going to try just the regular MAC fix plus but when I went into the store I saw that they had just come out with the pink and gold lite versions. I sprayed them both (one on each arm)... I didn't see too much of a difference in the store but the girl that worked there assured me out in the sun it was a whole different ball game so I went for it. I'm so glad I did, because it gives me a very beautiful glow, without being glittery or too much. This is exactly what I was hoping it would be! The MAC lady told me that the gold lite is more for medium to dark skin tones and the pink is for fair to medium.
M.A.C Cosmetics Prep + Prime Fix+ (Shimmer) I couldn’t decide if I wanted to rate this a 3, or a 4. I really do love the way it makes my skin glow, but the way it dispenses is so annoying. Normally with a bottle that is close to empty, you will get that camel-like spit spray, but this is just how this one is all the time. It will dispense way to much in one area, and ruin an area of foundation. When it sprays properly though, it is beautiful.
This added a little bit too much shimmer on my face before my make up. I thought it was going to make my face look radiant or glowing but really it just look like I put shimmer eyeshadow or highlight all over my face before I put my foundation on. It was kind a hard to cover up
Let me start off saying I am a Mac Fix + Junkie! I put fix + on before makeup application, the middle, after application, and spray it throughout the day. When I saw Mac came out with something sparkly I went RUNNING to my nearest Sephora. Sadly, I think I will stick to the original Mac Fix +. The shimmer version really doesn’t do anything. The sprayer on this is HARSH. I’m not sure if I got a defective one (just my luck🙃) but when applying it feels like I’m being sandblasted by puddles of water. I don’t notice any shimmer, or results using this product. I will go through the rest of the bottle, but I definitely will be buying the original from now on.
Super refreshing. The highlight in it is really pretty. It's not super noticeable so it won't overwhelm yer face. While I like it, i don't feel like it does a lot for my makeup. It still wears and separates the same as it would if I didn't use it. Other than that haha it's great for a hot day and to spray yer brushes to apply a shimmer shadow
The Fix Plus is a iconic, legendary spray! It leaves a dewy finish on the skin with speckles of the shimmer. You can put it as your primer and go set on top of your makeup. It isn’t too much so that’s good because it makes my makeup very natural and glowy at the same times. I’ve already went through 3 bottles already!
Review for: Other more...
So I don’t actually have or use the shimmer ones, this review is for the original formula without the shimmer and glitter. I absolutely love this product. anytime I put this on I can see my makeup just melt into my skin and give my foundation a more skin like look, so it appears like I’ve applied much less products to my face than I actually have. the scent is something that i wasn’t a fan of at first, but I have slowly gotten into it, it smells pretty refreshing. i do wish the sprayer was a little different as it does disperse a lot of product at once, and while I don’t mind a good douse, it really just makes the bottle go much quicker than it should.
I purchased the MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ Shimmer in goldlite & pinklite. They give a very very very subtle shimmer. If you’re looking for a glow or a more glam, this is not the product for you. Plus the shimmer is inconsistent from bottle to bottle.
I absolutely love this product. ...The way it blends the blush/bronzer with my foundation is worth every penny spent! You won't be sorry you bought this. I used the original and I don't find it sticky whatsoever, just refreshing! But if you what a natural glow you definitely have to buy this one with shimmer.
