Quickie Holy Grail Post - MAC Fix+ Spray!

Time for another Quickie Holy Grail post!!



Today it's MAC Fix+ spray!



An oldie but a goody, I first discovered MAC Fix+ way back when I discovered Makeup Geek and realised people put makeup tutorials on teh interwebz and it's been a HG item ever since. Honestly, its my most repurchased cosmetic item ever.

MAC Fix+ sitting on my counter 

What I love about it: 

It's the perfect weapon for erasing too much powder or too heavily applied foundation. It also smells great and feels hydrating on your skin. Also it doubles as a handy hair product for dialling down that awful super crunchy/powdery look from using too much dry shampoo. 

Is the hype true? 

Yes and No. Yes it's awesome to finish makeup, adding back in a glowy quality to the skin and reducing any over-powdering that may have happened, but no it doesn't "set" your makeup. Use a primer under your foundation for longevity instead :) 

Repurchase? 

Oh hells yes! LOL I go through at least 4 bottles a year....and that's as an average every day women who isn't a makeup artist and doesn't wear makeup every day. Back in my single days when I was out clubbing a lot I would go through more as I was wearing makeup more often.

Cost: 

$27 AUD from MAC counters in both Myer and David Jones
or MAC stores (Eastern states) 

Ingredients: 

Can be found here 

Anything else?

It's also available in these freaking adorable travel size bottles!! *squee*
You can also open the bottles and refill them - I tend to have a few bottles on the go at the same time and will sometimes decant them into one bottle. You can even put plain water and leave-in conditioner in a bottle, shake it up and use it as a DIY hair detangler/spritzer :) 

in front is the adorable travel size edition that lives in my handbag and behind is my ever growing collection of empties

the spritz in action! as you can see its a super fine mist that only requires a half press to achieve
