    Had high hopes because of all the rave reviews but honestly, I'm disappointed. Definitely not effective as a Setting Spray. Smells pretty but that's about it

    Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Fix+:

    I do admit it did make my makeup flawless. But...... I had an allergic reaction to it by the 4th or 5th day. Mac was so kind in letting me have my money back. But if this ever happens to u I would just say I bought and I'm going to deal with that. It was after felt like hours of calls. I went to 6 different people in one sitting.

      I had previously thought all setting sprays were the same and had been using the Elf Makeup Mist & Set setting spray for months. MAC Prep & Prime Fix+ is easily 100x better than the Elf one. Will never use another setting spray, will be buy this again and again.

      Love love LOVE the Mac Fix+. I use the Mario Badesceu to prep my skin and then the Mac to set my makeup. It dries fast and doesn't leave my face feeling sticky. It's also very light which my skin loves.

        Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Fix+:

        I've been using this for about a week now and I don't have any complaints. I bought this to use as a finishing spray but this morning I used it as a primer also. My makeup didn't budge all day. It's works good for my oily skin. I was using urban decay de-slick but I felt like it's using doing enough for $34. The woman at Ulta recommended this because I wanted something a little cheaper. This mist comes out a lot finer than the urban decay so it doesn't feel heavy and I can cover more of my face this less pumps. Now that I've tried it as a primer, I'm even happier with it. I recommend this to anyone with oily skin.

        Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Fix+:

        A never knew how much a setting spray like this would help in my makeup routine. I love it for prepping and hydrating my skin. I love it for melting my powders into my skin and together. I love it for amping up the pigmentation of my eyeshadow. It's now a pivotal part of my makeup whether I'm doing every day makeup or full coverage occasion makeup.

          Does it give a dewey finish or matte?

          • Brand Expert

            A:

            MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ is a hydrating mist that will moisturize and soothe the skin while setting and prolonging wear. Your skin will look dewy when first sprayed and when it dries it will not change the original finish of your foundation and/or powder. It will, however, give your makeup more of a second-skin look, eliminating the appearance of it sitting on the skin.

            Hi there! While all of the scents of MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ work on all skin types, we suggest the Calming Lavender if your skin type is sensitive.

            Hi Jen! MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ in Romantic Rose has a distinct, light rose scent we think you'll swoon for. It's excellent for sensitive skin types, as it adds hydration and will give your makeup a healthy glow.

            A:

            Use up rate varies widely, Kaylnn, it really depends on how much you use it and how often you reapply. We'd say most people would have a use-up rate within 1-3 months with the average falling somewhere within 6-8 weeks.

            A:

            Great question, Eileen. MAC Original Prep + Prime Fix+ can be misted onto the skin before moisturizer to lock in hydration, or misted after makeup is applied for a fresh, all-day finish.

          Is it non comedogenic?
          Asked on 4/11/2018 by Bella from US

          1 answer

          • Brand Expert

            A:

            We use the term "non-acnegenic." If a product is non-acnegenic, it has undergone clinical testing by a board-certified dermatologist and was determined not to increase the number of or worsen acne lesions.

            MAC Original Prep + Prime Fi + is non- acnegenic.

            Hope this helps, Bella!

            A:

            M·A·C does not test on animals. They do not own any animal testing facilities and never ask others to test on animals for them. While some governments conduct animal testing to prove safety before they will allow MAC to sell their products, M·A·C has never tested on animals and continue to be a leader in the movement to end animal testing globally. To this end, they are proud to partner with IIVS (Institute for In Vitro Sciences) to expand the use and acceptance of non-animal testing methods.

        • Q:

          I like using a thicker silicone primer to fill in my large pores on my nose and cheeks and fine lines under my eyes before my powder or liquid foundation, can I mist this all over my face before applying my silicone primer or will it not be compatible when paired together?

            Great question. MAC Original Prep + Prime Fix+ can be applied to skin before your silicone primer. It will lock in hydration and give your skin a refreshing glow before applying makeup.
