WHY YOU SHOULD SKIP THIS PRODUCT
I had wanted to LOVE it, but I just can’t help thinking I could just use normal water for this purpose. I tried so hard to love it and used it so many times before writing this review, but I honestly have to say that I don’t even like it. The money spend on this product can be used on other, better products. Let me explain…

I had wanted to try this out at the beginning because I’ve heard that it can be used as a fix for makeup. However, after doing a little research and hearing from different gurus with different opinions…I had found out that it’s actually not a fix. (I double confirmed with the sale rep at MAC just to make sure). I was a little relief to find out that it wasn’t a fix because honestly, it did nothing as a fix. It doesn’t even come close to Urban Decay’s All-Nighter Spray. My makeup lasted so much longer when I used the Urban Decay fix comparing to the Fix+.

Then, I’m not really looking for a refreshing spray because I always set my makeup with my Urban Decay’s All-Nighter Spray so there’s no point in “refreshing” it. As a toner, it really doesn’t do much. I find that it’s not super moist and it sometimes leave my skin feeling really tight. And for $19 USD, I can get a much better toner. Let me continue, I don’t foil my shadows nor do I use/own pigments. So I can’t use the spray for that. (Even if I wanted to foil, I would honestly just use water to light damp my brush or somethng, haha!). Then the last use, for the hair and scalp, I put so much product in my hair already to make it not dry and I really didn’t need another product. So in the end, I don’t really have much use for the Fix+.

Overall, the only good thing about the product is the smell. It does have a very fresh rose smell that I really like. But to pay close to $20 for a nice bottle of water with a rosey smell is a little too much in my opinion.

RATING
Product (1/5) – A point just for the nice smell.
Cost (3/5) – Quite pricey for a bottle of water.
Ease of Use (2/5) – Not enough instructions on the box to tell you what’s the exact use of the product.
Packaging (5/5)
