    Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Fix+:

    I use this before I prime my skin and it give me this beautiful glow then I also use it to set my makeup and it melts all the makeup in my skin and makes my face seem flawless like I have a filter on my face I would recommend the lavender one it's the best out of all of them it opens your pores and feels super cooling.

      Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Fix+:

      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.

          if you dont use this, you should

          By Babsalot

          from Oak Ridge Tennessee

          Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Fix+:

          I had tried setting sprays in the past but it either left my makeup looking splotchy and ruined the look or I didn't see any difference with another so i just didn't use one. I had read positive things about this Mac spray and needed spend a little more for free shipping so I bought a little Mac bottle. I love this! I spray it on after my makeup in the am to enhance my look. once I apply this, I am left with a dewy smooth face and I never have any uneven, caked spots on my face after either. I also apply it a couple times during the day when I touch up my makeup just to refresh my skin and to help bring my powder touch up back to a glowing, flawless made up face. I use the Mac pro long wear waterproof foundation also which does last through 12 hrs without any wearing off, and this spray applied after really enhances the benefit and look of the foundation. I use to be an urban decay girl for my face makeup but in the past couple years, I have switched to all things Mac for my face and I couldn't be more pleased. I only wish I had tried these before then.

            I thought the hype around this product was just that. Hype. However, i was wrong, i've tried many facial sprays and this product is in one word...AMAZING! I got the original scent but i would love to purchase the other scents. *I do have combo skin but mostly on the dry side*

            FRAGRANCE! Sensitive skin beware!

            By Amber

            from Fairfax, VA

            Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Fix+:

            I bought this like everyone else bc of the hype from beauty gurus. I have combination oily skin that gets dry in the winter so I like to have a hydrating mist to rotate out in my routine. However, I was unaware of just how over fragranced this product is. I used it one time, and when I took off my makeup at the end of the day my skin had a huge rash across both cheeks, my chin, and a little down my neck! I will not be repurchasing and I hope I warn those with sensitive skin away from this product. Stick to your urban decay chill/all nighter.

                  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.

                  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.

                  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!

                  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.

                  Great question, Christa! MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ can be used in a variety of ways. First, it can be misted onto the skin before moisturizer, which will lock in hydration. It can also be used after makeup as a setting spray, and will remove an overly matte finish. Last, it's great for refreshing the skin and makeup throughout the day.
