Hands down the best dual use spray on the market. This product makes my client's skin feel and look amazing from the inside out. I apply this under and over everyone's looks. It holds makeup in place for hours on end (12-18) and smells super refreshing - every client comments on that.

Mac prep and prime is my second primer and setting spray that Ive used and this is a one stop shop! It's a cool mist that applies by spray. It smooths and evens your pores very well! It has a nice hold as a setting spray and it diminishes some shine but I wouldn't say it's a matte finish. I would recommend this to everyone! Esp those who like myself hate cream primers.

On oily skin (my case) it adds extra sheen which is ok if you're going for a glossy makeup look, but on matte looks I do not really recommends using MAC prep+prime fix, except in winter maybe.
But it is extremely helpful if you are applying makeup on dry skin, as it will helps you to moisture your skin and saves the makeup from breaking. MAC Prep + Prime Fix+

MAC Prep and Prime Fix+ is my holy grail! It's light, sprays as a light mist, and you get so much product for the price. I spray this on my skin after my primer before I start my makeup, spray it on my beauty blender before concealer blending, and always get a nice even spray all over at the end of my routine (I even sometimes spray my foundation brush before I blend in foundation...what can I say, I love this stuff!). Definitely makes an impact when it comes to makeup lasting and not moving around your face throughout the day. Have yet to find another setting spray like this

This is not a setting spray, I repeat, this is not a setting spray! This is a product that you use to prep your skin and give it some needed hydration, OR to "fix" your face. Most of the time after you apply powder your face will look dry and cakey. This is when you would take this product and spray it over your face to allow the powder to melt with the liquid foundation and appear more skin like. I love it for this reason, but don't mistake it as something that can hold your makeup together all day!

I have tried more setting sprays that I can count trying to find the right one. I have repurchased this item more times than I can count. This is a staple in my makeup collection that i use on a daily basis. After applying my makeup I spray my face with this product to help blend my powders into my skin,making it appear more skin-like. If you are a powder fan but hate the powder looks after placing all products on your face, just spray your face with this and no more powder appearance on your skin.

This is my favorite finishing spray. It is definitely NOT a setting spray, but a finishing spray. I think it's pricy but it's SO worth it! I use it to intensify highlighters and shimmery eyeshadows. I also use this every time I do my makeup to finish off the look especially if there was any face powder used. The reason for this is because it will help the powders to really melt into my skin and not look powdery or cakey.

After seeing this advertised everywhere I eventually caved and bought it. It costs the same as the original but I would have to say this one is way better!!! I absolutely love the smell and it leaves my face feeling so hydrated. If you love the original then you should give this one a try

This is a product that I always need to have in my makeup collection! I love to set my face using this product and it takes away any look of powder! It melts the powder right into my face so that everything can look like skin again! It's also great to use before you put on makeup, it's great to amp up shimmer eyeshadow, or to make your highlight more blinding and blend the highlight into the skin! If you have not tried this product yet you need to pick it up because you are missing out on magic!

This is an everyday must for me. I love love love this spray so much. Its super light and smells so darn good. It moisturizes my face for a long time. I use this to set each layer when I am doing my makeup and also at the end. I also spray this after I have applied my moisturizer on the days when I don't wear makeup. I have combination skin and it has helped regulate my skin. you get a lot of product for the price. I have had about four bottles over the past year and I will keep coming back to it.

I've been wanting to give this a try for a very long time now. Been hearing nothing but good things about this product. Now here's my question. Or two. Is this a setting spray? If so, does it help your makeup last longer?
