Most Helpful Positive Review Healthy glow
If you are confused with the mixed reviews this product receives, I hope to help by telling you this: this is not a highlighter, it is not supposed to work like one, it will not give you the topical glow you need on your cheekbones. This is a great fixing spray which DOES add a dash of summery glow all over your face. You can't really see it, but that's the point: when the make-up is done well, you see the face... not the make-up. I would repurchase. It does not look oily in my 30-year-old combination skin.
Most Helpful Critical Review Didn't live up to the hype
I was so excited for this product. I had been waiting for the launch and ordering the gold lite shade right away. I am obsessed with fix plus and strobe cream so i was beyond excited for this product. I was so shocked to see the minimal and tiny amount of the goldlite pigment. It has the smallest amount of shimmer and cannot even be seen when sprayed anywhere. This is just normal fix plus with maybe a hint of shimmer that really can't be seen! Would love this with triple the amount of pigment

This formula was my favorite, it gave the perfect youthful glow and subtle shimmer. I went through half a bottle, and purchased a back up bottle for my birthday thinking that I found true "gold". But all the sudden one day out of no where, something went wrong with the spritzer or the gold particles. I would spray my face and the end of my makeup and have to redo my whole make up routine because it would just make my face look like I was drenched in globs of gold. I'm so grateful the manager at my local Ulta let me exchange it, even though I had made a good sized dent in the bottle. Guys, It's not worth the gamble of having to redo your whole make up routine if it malfunctions! Stick to the other formulas!
Where's my sparkle?
KrysC from Stockton
Am I doing it wrong? Shake & spray, right? WHY DONT I SPARKLE?! Booooo! I'll stick with the regular prep + prime because this doesn't seem to actually do anything...
Abby from Phoenix
This was amazing until it got about half full, then giant globs of gold shimmer were all over my face and I had to redo my makeup many times. Would love to try the pink one and hope it works better.
Learning curve for goldlite
Katie from Ny
So I have this in goldlite and while I do really enjoy it, there is definitely ways to use it and ways NOT to use it. First you must shake it every time before you apply. Read the directions and take it seriously when they say spray 12 inches away from your face. If you spray too close, you will end up with gold globs. I have discovered that this does not pair well with most foundations that already claim to be glowy. It just adds too much and you end up looking like a strobe light. Seriously, the glow could fry an ant if you caught it right in the sun. I like to wear this on days where I am not wearing foundation and have concealer and other light makeup on. It makes my skin look PERFECT that way. I can spray this lightly over matte foundations as well. I do really enjoy this even with the learning curve that came with using it. I'm a huge advocate of macs setting spray. There's nothing else like it. Their matte spray is also amazing!
I would purchase this product each time
Erica from Spartanburg, SC
I used this product before I applied my foundation and as a finisher
Amazing. Worth the price
MacySee from Green Bay
I've been using this product for almost a year now. I only use it on days that I'm going to be out the whole day, but this is very very long lasting; as if you've just freshly put on makeup. I love this setting spray. Way better than any other spray. The urban decay isn't long lasting and it looks to greasy at the end of the day (I have dryyyy skin) where as this one it looks amazing.
Not for oily skin
M Andrews from North Carolina
I've used this like 2 or 3 times and I've decided I hate it. It makes my face so greasy and sticky feeling (when I use it with or without foundation). Maybe it would be better for people with normal or dry skin. I have combination skin that tends to get oily in the T-zone and this made it a thousand times worse. Won't be using again.
Shelby beauty from Boston
Love this product! This will give you a beautiful, flawless, dewy summer glow that sets your makeup. Hold far away from your face to sprayer makes it comes out a bit gloppy. I would definitely repurchase this again!
I am buying again...
Carol the Amazing from Melbourne, FL
I am 53 and love dewy glowy skin but can't stand all of these obvious over highlighted faces - nothing about it looks healthy and natural. I use other products that highlight and provide that lit from within glow and this one is fantastic as an all over finish. The glow is subtle but beautiful. You shouldn't sparkle like a piece of glitter especially at my age - skin should have a healthy radiance and this provides that. I'm very pleased with it.
Yanice from Puerto Rico
This product is beyond amazing
Miss954 from Fort Lauderdale
I initially saw this on one of my coworkers who is well over 50 years old. It made her skin look so pretty and youthful. I wear it on top of makeup. It helps to diffuse any texture or fine lines. Give it a try if you want to add a little sparkle to your makeup routine!
I would buy it again
Mari from Bakersfield, CA
I really loved this product. I use it every day.
Gave my skin a dewy youthful glow!
Julie from Columbia, MO
I used as a setting spray, also tried it under my foundation! Awesome thanks!
Becky from Massachusetts
The perfect amount of glow, it's absolutely beautiful on the skin and makes it look like a natural radiance from within, can't do my make up without the goldlite!
Nozzle wasn't working
TrinAA from Dhaka
I have bought this product from KL airport when I opened the packet found the nozzle blocked. Therefore I made a small hole then The spray was coming out like water drops :(
Can someone help me about the nozzle? Or mine one was defected , since there was no hole :/
Chalsey from Pittsburgh Pa
I ordered this hoping for the best and my goodness it is!! Gives a slight glow that I just love! Gives you a nice sheen all over without looking like your sweaty. Sets my makeup for hours!! Please don't ever stop selling this product I will definitely buy again!!
I want a lifetime supply
Liz from Florida
I am struggling which one has been my favorite setting spray and this one just knocked them all out of the park. The fact that you get shimmer all over your body where you spray is HUGE. The smell is another factor . Most sprays smell like chemical. Love it MAC
nataliakaaate from 92345
makes me glow with or without make up and the best setting sprsy even looked good after i napped with it on.
Nothing like prep, prime, AND GLOW!
Glow is fabulous! from Virginia
Perfect setting spray. Smells excellent. It dries perfectly. My skin is VERY sensitive, and it works for me, unlike some sprays that break my face out. I love the glow that it leaves, and the way it keeps my makeup fresh.
Love this product!
FLNana from Florida
I have dry, aging, caucasian skin and this product is by far the best I have ever used and I am a makeup junkie! I spray this on and makes my drab skin go to dewy skin instantly. As a mature woman I dont like the glimmer and sparkles that belong to the younger generation. This product does not present that way at all I just get a dewy and soft glow. I receive many compliments on my makeup. I have not tried the golden mist but this one is a 5 star product.
Morgan from Michigan
This is a product I've bought so many times! I use it to set my base, which makes it not so powdery looking. I get loads of compliments on my makeup. Mostly saying it's flawless... so def recommend.
How do you say no to MAC
callmefafi from Lake Monroe, Florida
After exchanging a product, this caught my eye. I tried it in store and was sold. I had just matched a foundation and purchased it, so what better way to try this was on top. Love! Any ever so slight glow with a semi-dewy finish. I've always loved the smell of Fix+. The MAC guy told me all the ways I can use it and I can't wait to try. MAC and I had a falling out some years ago, but I just can't let go. I keep coming back. Definitely must try! I prefer that rose color but maybe your thing is gold. 😘
Great, Subtle Glow, Makes Foundation Look Better
Gabbie from EU
I have dry skin but I still don't like too dewy or shiny/glittery things. At first I was afraid this spray would make me look weird, but I'm glad I got it! It's perfect for the summer or any sunny weather. When the sun shines on the skin it looks amazing, with the Pinklights one there is an interesting kind of pink glow, but it doesn't look like I have glitter on my face, it's more naturally glowy. I tried both the Pinklights and Goldlights one on my arms and the golden one left actual golden glitter dots, which I'm not sure I'd like. The pink one is like a subtle pink highlighter moment. I'm definitely using this on the beach all over my face and chest! About the wearing power, I'm not sure, if I was wearing heavy eyeshadow I'd probably tell more easily. To the people who complain it's not shiny enough: combine it with a similar highlighter. I saw a guide to that in my local store.
Bre from West Palm Beach,FL
This is a BEAUTIFUL setting spray! I prep my face with it before too and it's very hydrating. I don't get oily with it on hours later, so in my experience it stays matte.
I have bought this product over and over. Love it!!
Kimi the Make-up Guru from Alabama
I use this product to not only set my make-up but also to spray my brushes before application. It helps everything go on so smoothly. I have an oily nose. So this product along with Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder, is Amazing for me. No shine break-through.
