      Excellent primer for my dry mature skin! Original scent is very pleasant. I also use it to wet my eye shadow and eyeliner brushes.

          Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Fix+:

          It doesn't really feel like it locks in my makeup, and if I'm not careful, it'll make my mascara bleed after I use it. I'll use it up, but I probably won't repurchase.

            Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Fix+:

            I love this setting spray. It is so light weight and is so easy to control. The design of the bottle really lets you control how much product will be dispensed and still has a nice spray out. It has a very pleasant perfume scent, which I really enjoy. A lot of setting sprays have a weird, chemical smell. It is very hydrating and non-sticky once it dries. It keeps make up looking natural and fresh all day/night. I don't have a single negative thing to say about this spray.

              Okay so I DONT use this as a setting spray. I actually exclusively use this to add pigment to my shadow. I spritz my brush with this and instantly it makes any shimmer like 1000x more pigmented and bright. It is ridiculous. This stuff is like magic!

                I think I'm the only person in the world who doesn't like this product. It does nothing for me! It doesn't set my makeup, it doesn't prime my face, and it doesn't reduce the powdery look. It's over priced good smelling water in my opinion. I've tried everything and have watched so many videos on how to use it for different things. It simply makes my make up wet and smudgy. Not worth all the $$$$$

                Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Fix+:

                This is great to use as a priming spray; it definitely leaves a tacky sort of feel to my skin (I like to pat it in lightly with my fingertips while it dries) that I think helps in my foundation application. Of course, the most famous use is for wetting metallic eyeshadows to increase pigmentation—which it ABSOLUTELY does. I will say that the spray nozzle is pretty intense, so it feels like a bit of a waste to coat a tiny little brush. Definitely try to get the product on the brush and THEN spray, or it could seal your eyeshadow in the pan a little weirdly.

                As for setting a finished look—if you get your face sopping wet with it and dry it down, I guess it creates a bit of a barrier to sweat; but I can still touch my eyelid and have the product transfer. It also makes my fair foundation oxidize a bit. So I say, use it as a primer and a medium to increase eyeshadow intensity, and it's fabulous. No other spray works quite as well as it does in that regard!

                    It's the original formula, now available in four permanent scents. With vitamins and minerals, that give skin an instant boost of hydration, and a lightweight prolonging formula helps your complexion look refreshed while setting makeup.

                    Great question, and yes! MAC Prep+Prime Fix+ can be used before your Moisturizer to lock in hydration, or after makeup is applied to remove an overly matte finish. It won't "set" your makeup, it will refresh and give a hydrated look.
