Must have

By Gg

Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Fix+:

I bought this on a beauty steal. Always wanted to try it. I love it!! My makeup stays on all day and doesn't run or smudge. Even after working out and in the summer heat. I use it mostly as a setting spray. Will definitely buy again,even at full price. Worth. Every. Penny.

Love it love it

By Jess

from Delano CA

Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Fix+:

I use it as a primer to prep my skin along with a blurring primer and let me tell youuuu bitchhh my makeup looks booomb , it's also soooo refreshing and doesn't make me so dry when I use matte foundation. It's sticky ( not like candy sticky , like sticky where it keeps your foundation locked in ) it smells really good too.

smelly and sticky

By lula

from USA

Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Fix+:

This does NOT work as setting spray. It is sticky feeling on the skin and makes me look extra oily. It has an awful smell as well. It didn't do anything for me. I'd rather use Mario Badescu as face prep and all nighter to set.

    Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Fix+:

    I finally bought this after hearing a lot about it, and after experimenting with when to apply this (at what stage of makeup application), this is the order I like the best: Moisturizer --> Mac Prep & Prime --> Benefit PoreFessional Primer --> Dior Forever Foundation. This combo really works for me. I also spray it on an eyeshadow brush when I need a color to pop, especially a metallic.

      Best primer I've ever used

      By Hannah

      from MI, USA

      Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Fix+:

      My skin doesn't take well to primers made with silicone, so I tried fix plus and it has helped consistently with the wear time of my makeup. It keeps my foundation from creasing around my nose, and my eyeshadow doesn't crease throughout the day as well. I love it and would recommend it to anyone!

        • Brand Expert

          A:

          MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ is dermatologist-tested and non-acnegenic. If a product is non-acnegenic, it has undergone clinical testing by a board-certified dermatologist and was determined not to increase the number of or worsen acne lesions. Hope this helps, Savanah!

      • Q:

        will the product make my eyeshadow more pigmented and vibrant?
        Asked on 5/27/2018 by yesenia from napa

        1 answer

        • Brand Expert

          A:

          Absolutely, Yesenia! That is just one of the benefits of using MAC Prep + Prime Fix+. Just spray your brush before dipping into your Eye Shadow. For the most vibrant looks, we suggest using it with MAC Extra Dimension Eyeshadows, which are perfect for creating sultry summer looks.

      • Q:

        Does this make your makeup matte? I'm looking for a spray that can prolong my makeup while keeping it looking nice and dewy.
        Asked on 5/26/2018 by NNK from chicago, il

        1 answer

        • Brand Expert

          A:

          MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ is a hydrating mist that will moisturize and soothe the skin while setting and prolonging wear. Your skin will look dewy when first sprayed, but when it dries down, it will not change the original finish of your foundation and/or powder. It will, however, give your makeup more of a second-skin look, eliminating the appearance of it sitting on the skin.

      • Q:

        Are there any differences in use for each scent? Is the calming lavender formula different from the original? Are some skin types suited for different scents? I have rosacea and combo skin.
        Asked on 5/24/2018 by Kelly from Wilmington, NC

        1 answer

        • Brand Expert

          A:

          Great question, Kelly. MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ contains fragrance notes, but formula-wise, there is no difference depending on the scent.

          Answered on 5/24/2018 by Brand Expert from MAC
      • Q:

        hi! so I'm wondering if the different scents only effect the scent of the product or the color that my makeup will be? if that makes sense?
        Asked on 5/22/2018 by Blake from US

        1 answer

        • Brand Expert

          A:

          MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ scents are all clear and do not affect the colour of your makeup. When misting skin after makeup application it will remove any powdery residue and prolong wear.

          Answered on 5/22/2018 by Brand Expert from MAC
      • Q:

        Can I use this as a primer? Most primers I find have Dimethicone in it, which I'm allergic to. But I need a primer because I have a sweating illness, otherwise my make up won't last 30 minutes.
        Asked on 5/21/2018 by DMBlovr from Kansas

        1 answer

        • Brand Expert

          A:

          MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ is a setting spray, not a foundation primer. It can be used before makeup application to moisturize and soothe tired skin, when used after makeup application it improves and extends the wear of makeup.

          Answered on 5/22/2018 by Brand Expert from MAC
      • Q:

        Can this be used as a daily and nightly moisturizer on combo oily/dehydrated skin to help reduce fine lines?
        Asked on 5/21/2018 by Kelly from Louisiana

        1 answer

        • Brand Expert

          A:

          MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ will provide an instant boost of hydration, if you are very dehydrated try MAC Oil Control Lotion, an oil-free moisturizer that offers lightweight hydration and no-shine oil control. It provides instant and long-term hydration, controls oil, is dermatologist tested, ophthalmologist tested and non-acnegenic.

          Hi Sheyla! All scents of MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ are suitable for oily skin (there isn't one that's more ideal for your skin type).
