    Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Fix+:

    I bought this product because it's all the talk in the makeup world, and honestly, it deserves all the hype its worth. It melts my makeup together and makes it look flawless, not cakey or powdery. It smells nice and does not burn my skin or make my skin feel tight like other setting sprays tend to do. If my contour lines look to rough, I can pat them out with a sponge after applying the spray and it melts together. This setting spray is also fantastic to refresh makeup after a few hours and for wetting brushes to apply shimmer eyeshadows.

      I use this for so many things.. prepping my skin for makeup.. spraying my eyeshadow brush to intensify pigment in shadows.. I spray on my face after using powder.. takes away any powderyness.. it's a cult favorite for a reason.

      Doesn't live up to the hype

      By JNS

      from Pittsburgh

      Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Fix+:

      This isn't a bad product, but there are others out there that perform much better. Given the cult status, I was expecting more. I wish the spray were a finer mist. Instead, it comes out very unevenly and leaves large droplets on the skin. It's good for spraying on a brush to foil eye shadows, but to prime and/ or set the skin, I would absolutely reach for Smashbox's Photo Finish andUrban Decay's All Nighter over this.

      Will repurchase

      By Nikki

      from Denver

      Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Fix+:

      Bought on suggestion from Laura Lee. I've tested it out in several different ways. My favorites are to spray on my beauty blender before I do my concealer or spray on beauty blender as I set my under-eye with powder. I also, of course, like it to use to enhance eye shadows and prep my skin. The product does what it claims to do.

      Love the original. The scent should
      be made into a perfume. After moisturizer I use it before and after my makeup and it looks beautiful. It hydrates my skin, looks dewy and it makes my skin look amazing. Will repurchase every time

          Because this is so dewy, it does not work well with people who have oily areas. I have combination skin and it just made my oily zones extra oily.

              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.

              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.

            • 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?

            • Brand Expert

              A:

              Great question, Arlene. MAC Original Prep + Prime Fix + is a setting spray and a whole lot more! Use alone or to finish makeup.

              For face products, apply your favourite powder and/or foundation and lightly mist all over face to set and hydrate.

              For colour products, apply your favourite eye shadow or pigment to your preferred brush, lightly mist bristles and sweep across lids for an intensified shadow look.

              We hope this helps!

              MAC Original Prep + Prime Fix+ is alcohol-free, Alley. Mist it over skin after makeup application to remove any powdery residue that will leave you with a skin-like finish!
