          I bought this product because all the hype Youtuber's create around it. I like it it does holds makeup (at least longer, before oils start peeking through.) I love to use it to get a better result on glittery/foily eye shadows, it works nice.

            the product is so good! it's super lightweight and helps my makeup literally melt together. but my favorite part is the spray nozzle! it helps the product come out in a fine mist and helps cover distribute the spray evenly. a good setting spray is a must for anyone with makeup!

            Your makeup will crease

            By Anne

            from Kansas

            Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Fix+:

            Wheverer I use this as a setting spray, my makeup creases an immense amount more than normal. Smile lines and eyeshadow especially. I do agree that it makes your highlight look wonderful, but it doesn't dry down fully leaving a tacky finish on the skin.

                Does this leave a matte, or dewy finish?

                  A:

                  More dewy, Ma'Kayla. MAC Prep + prime Fix + instantly boosts hydration while delivering a soft sheen to the skin. Use it to sheer down your foundation, intensify colour, improve and extend the wear of makeup, or moisturize and soothe tired skin.

                  A:

                  While MAC Prep + Prime Fix + won't make you oily it will provide an instant boost of hydration and deliver a soft sheen. More of a dewy effect. Suitable for all skintypes, it can be used to sheer out foundation, intensify colour, improve and extend the wear of makeup, or moisturize and soothe tired skin. We hope you'll give it a try!

                  A:

                  Hi Kiera! MAC Prep Prime Fix + is a hydrating spray that refreshes the skin and sets makeup. While it locks in hydration before and after makeup, it won't act like a traditional Primer that extends the wear of makeup.

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

                  A:

                  The original MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ has a soothing herbal scent. The amount of fragrance in the other scents will be comparable to your trusted favourite, ingredients are listed on the product page. Please feel free to consult with your physician should you have additional concerns.

                  A:

                  Used as a finishing spray, MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ will indeed extend the wear of makeup, Yohanna. This holy grail multi-tasker can also be used alone or under makeup to boost hydration, mixed with Foundation to sheer it down, intensify the colour payoff of eyeshadows and highlighters and much more!

                  We hope you'll see what all the fuss is about soon!

                How different are the four sprays from each other? (The 3 scented and the original)

                Is it just the scent? Does one have calming properties while the other has soothing? Things like that.

                  A:

                  Great question! MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ spray scents all offer a lightweight mist of water packed with vitamins and minerals, infused with a blend of green tea, chamomile and cucumber to gently soothe and refresh the skin. They also improve and extend the wear of makeup and moisturize and soothe tired skin. The individual scents do not offer separate benefits, select the one that appeals to you most.
