Hey everyone! Welcome to my review of the MAC Prep and Prime Fix+ Finishing Mist. Comment below this post if you need any more clarification; I’d be happy to help!

Age: 25

Skin type: Sensitive, combination (dry in winter, oily in summer, can get oily from the wrong products)

Skin concerns: Moderate acne, hyperpigmentation, redness, itchiness from products

Climates I tested this in: All climates

Length of time tested: Over the past year

How often I used: Once a day (morning)

How much I applied: A thin mist

PROS

  • is very lightweight and watery; feels hydrating but doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy
  • creates a subtle glowy, radiant finish; makes my foundation and powder look more skin-like
  • it contains several calming and healing ingredients, making it more beneficial than plain water
  • if sprayed on your eyeshadow brush before applying shimmery eyeshadow, it amps up the pigmentation
  • has a light, pleasant smell
  • doesn’t clog my pores
  • no harmful alcohol
  • bottle is sturdy and has locking mechanism
  • 2 size options: 1 oz. and 3.4 oz.

CONS

  • the mist isn’t as fine and even as I’d expect from a mid-end product
  • price/amount/quality ratio is ok ($12 for 1 oz., $24 for 3.4 oz.)
  • this isn’t advertised as a setting spray, so if you’re looking for something that controls oil or makes your makeup last, this will likely disappoint
  • contains “fragrance” (although it’s listed third to last and I didn’t experience irritation)
