Most Helpful Positive Review Shake Well
If you do not shake this extremely well, it will leave white dots all over your face and chest. The first time I used it I didn't have a problem. It wasn't until the next time I used it that I noticed white spots all over my face, neck, and chest. The spots eventually go away in about 10 to 15 minutes but I thought it was something to note. However, I definitely love this product and will continue to buy. Keeps me matte and fresh all day plus the smell is a bonus.
Most Helpful Critical Review Disappointed
I went to purchase this product today and I was so excited because I have always loved the original Fix+ spray. I was excited to have long lasting make up. After I finished my makeup I sprayed this and not only did it dull down my look, but it also left me with a white film of residue all over my face completely ruining my make up.

This product is brilliant! It sets my makeup beautifully; controls oil really well; and with this thing, my makeup does not move under my mask. This is definitely one of my favorite MAC products now.
Ash from California
I tried it twice. The first time I thought it left white droplet spots all over my face because I didn't shake it enough. The second time I used it, I shook it very thoroughly and it still left white spots all over my finished makeup so I essentially had to do my face over again which was of course a huge waste of time. I'm definitely returning it.
Very drying and it leave a white residue on my face.

Very drying! White residue on my face
Extremely Soothing and Sets Perfectly
H from Chicago
I read all of the reviews before committing to a full bottle, and I'm glad I saw the ones stressing how important shaking the bottle is.
I forgot 1-2 times to shake it a bunch, and it wasn't until about 3/4 through a work (office-style) day did I start rubbing my hear and did get some of the mattifying stuff on my hands like I was peeling a super thin face mask.
And my eye makeup STAYS exactly where it was at 5am until I get home, sometimes as late as 10pm.It's also awesome to mix with eye shadow to make fun funky eyeliner
Valencia from Indianapolis
This spray left tiny water drop stains all over my face….I'm not sure if the sprayer is defective, but it doesn't give a light misty spray at all.
Remember to shake well
Clurrie from Detroit
This spray is great for keeping my face masks from rubbing foundation off my face. I have oily skin, and this keeps it under control. By the end of my workday, my face doesn't look like half of my foundation melted off. I ran out of it and I am missing it so much that I have to repurchase it.
For reference I wash my face, apply my morning skincare, apply foundation, set foundation with a translucent matte powder, and then after I finish doing my cheeks I set everything with this spray.

Favorite setting spray
Matte Prime Fixe
Confused from GA
I've been using Brume Fixante for years and I like it. When I saw the matte spray, I thought it would be a great asset to my make up regime. I have oily skin and thought this product, Matte Vaporisateur would help with oil control. Instead the product turns white on my skin and looks awful. What a waste of money! I am very disappointed and can't understand how this is good for anyone, especially African Americans.
Magic in a bottle
Sallykate from USA
I count this as one of my top five holy grails of make up. Cannot do without it!! From cleaning of excess eye shadow from beneath my eyes to setting my eye brows to adding depth to my loose dry shadows to setting my make up!! This little number does it all. I live in a hot and humid climate where make up just melts of your face. Thanks to this "gold in a bottle", in literally have just as much make up in at the end of the day as I do at the first of the day. The only thing in would say is a draw back is the bottle nozzle. It tends to clog up so make sure you shake it vigorously before you apply and clean off the nozzle when you are done. Sometimes though it's not enough, my last bottle i only made it half way through the bottle before it closed so bad I couldn't use the rest it because it absolutely would not spray. I was so sad!!! I had to transfer it to another spray bottle I had on hand. But that's the ONLY issue…… this is magic in a bottle.

I've tried several oil reducing setting sprays I still do like this one over the Urban Decay deslick. However much later in the day I still do become oily and have to powder my nose from time to time. I don't think I'll ever find an oil reducing setting spray to truly remove all traces of oil.

I couldn't finish it ):
Sydney from Chesapeake, Virginia
I got this with the understanding that paired with the powder foundation, it'll look like skin and stay on for a long time. It didn't. It did not prolong the wear time, in fact, I've bought cheaper and it's worked better. It didn't even work well as a primer.
Don't waste your money.
not for super oily.
Kayla from California
I don't just have oily skin. I have super super oily skin. unfortunately I do not see any difference after using this. unfortunately I have yet to find a product that works for super super oily skin. also with the California fires my skin got even more oily with all the pollution I'm breathing in.
Pat the product on
Jen from Seattle WA
This seems to be the only mattifying product that actually works on my very oily T zone and it and lasts all day. I cannot use the spray because the product will dry out my under eye area. I will spray a cotton round and pat where needed. I will keep repurchasing.
Love the product hate the nozzle!!!!
Nicole from San Jose
I love that for the most part this product helps minimize oil. But, the nozzle is a joke! It doesn't lightly mist/spray. Not to mention it leaves white specs on my face after I use it. Very disappointed
Holly from Waukesha, WI
Love that I can use it as a base and setting spray. Smell is not too strong (I'm very sensitive to scent).
Made my skin flakey dry and irritated
Mo from Columbus
I am returning it. Made my skin flakey dry and irritated. Even got a breakout near flakey dry area. Also, my makeup didn't hold any better. I guess it made my makeup less cakey looking, but it seemed to rub off easier than without spray. So between that, and the extreme dry skin I got (around chin area), I would not use. Fyi I have combo to dry skin normally. But never flakes of skin peeling off normally.
Best of the best
CM from OR
I waited too long to try this setting spray! It's everything I wanted it to be. It truly sets matte and looks incredibly smoothing. My old fav was all nighter that has alcohol in it which is not good for your skin. I truly love fix plus matte!!
Tater from Arkansas
I was excited to try this Matte spray from MAC but after applying my moisturizer then makeup I really couldn't tell a difference or notice any less shine.
Must Have For Oily Skin
KT from Utah
I have the worst T-zone and it doesn't matter what I do I can't keep it from getting gross. I used this yesterday at a outdoor concert in 90+ degrees for roughly 9 hours and was significantly less oily at the end of the day and took a nap today and everything was not only perfect but I also haven't gotten oily at all.
Jules from MN
I love the product don't get me wrong, but I have noticed over the years that MAC can't seem to fix the nozzle on the spray bottles. I have purchased multiple full sized bottles and not even getting close to using it half way the spray nozzle completely stops working. Which causing me to pour the product into an alternative spay bottle. This is such a frustrating experience for me. MAC I truly hope y'all do something to fix this issue. Otherwise drop the price, because I did not pay this much to have a broken nozzle spray EACH time. 😒
Jackie from Washington, DC
Ladies, please shake the bottle really well. I promise this works for the oily skin ladies. I use it underneath as a primer and my makeup doesn't budge. Sometimes I'll use it as a setting spray as well and I never get the white dots because I shake it so well. It leaves my face looking so natural.
No more shine
Silky from Illinois
I love this product. My skin is very oily. A spritz of this reduces the shine and preps my face for makeup applications
CR from TX
This is the best matte setting spray. I use this religiously every time I do my makeup. I see so many people complain about white dots... What white dots? I give it a good hard shake and have never had any issues. I'm almost down to half my
Dots even after shaking!
adi from US
Very disappointed with this product. Leaves white dots all over my face, which is very inconvenient at the end of my makeup... had to remove everything and redo it!! Read in the reviews that shaking it helps, but even after shaking the bottle really well, it left white dots! I like the other fix+ sprays but the matte one has been a huge disappointment.
