I love this product and am slowly (because it lasts ages) working my through the different flavours.
This was the first setting spray that I bought, so in the interests of experimentation, I’ve tried a few others, but I keep coming back to this.
Firstly, it works! Sets my makeup beautifully. I really notice the difference if I don’t use it.
I love the coverage the spray /pump gives. I’ve read other reviewers who comment the dispenser is awful. I have to disagree, I find it gives a broad and even coverage of just the right amount - three pumps, left, right and middle of face, done! . I’ve tried Smashbox’s setting spray, and that dispenser is truly awful - very narrow dispense, so to get full face coverage you end up with so much product it’s running down your face.
It dries quickly, so you are not left waiting for it to dry and wondering around looking like you’ve just run a marathon.
Then the the different flavours - some people may prefer no scent, this is an option, but I’ve tried to lavender and coconut so far. The smell is quite subtle, so you are not overpowered by it, just a gentle smell.
As I said, I’ve tried a few other setting sprays, and while some have been ok, this works brilliantly for me, so why bother with second best. Definite fav.

I think this is an amazing product, perfect for before and after your makeup! But it does squirt out a little harsh and to much sometimes so keep about 12inchs from your face when using! But overall I love it😍

Sets your makeup in place amazingly. While also having a soft sheen which is refreshing to the skin. Lasts for a very long time. I will also spray it into highlighter brushes or eyeshadow brushes that I’m used highlighter/ glitter on for extra pigment

This primer's dispenser is awful! It's not spraying, it's splashing your face. The smell of it it's so-so. It kinda smells like chemicals and just a hint of coconut, but does the job.
I believe there are better products (cheaper too) than this one that would do better!

amaaaazing. I have got the coconut scented one which smells dreamy! it preps the skin for before make up, leaving it feeling hydrated and like the perfect canvas to apply on. I also use it to dampen any brushes e.g for a pigment that is applied better when wet. And i also use it at the end to set the make up on my face which stops matte foundations and powders from creasing. I couldn't live without this product! my absolute go-to and seems to last too ! Mac are giving a free sample when purchasing any product at the moment too :) You're welcome.

My fave Mac product HAS to be the Prep & Prime Fix Plus. I used to use pure Rose Water, but I am now a total convert. Rose Water is brilliant, and I do still tone with it, but this Prep & Prime from MAC is definitely my go to product for my makeup if I want a super hydrated, beautifully dewy complexion. It can be used as a primer, spritzed between layers of foundation, concealer, powders, bronzing and contouring, etc. And a final spritz to set your makeup. It is one of my 'must have' products, I seriously could not be without it now. I am in my early 30's), but no one believes I am! This product is truly amazing at helping to keep me looking younger than I really am - None of my makeup settles in to fine lines or pores, not with this bad boy!! If you invest in anything, I highly recommend this product! Ps. I have the Lavender edition, smells divine too - bonus!!

this is the best setting spray. it holds makeup all day and refreshes your face. unlike some other setting sprays which smell awful and make your skin bad, the mac fix plus setting spray smells amazing and has helped my acne

Let's face it MAC, you got me well and truly with the Prep + Prime Fix+ Pinklite, how beautiful did your promo shots look? But then how far did you fall flat, Instagram posts made Pinklite look just like any other Fix+ of yours when Shannon told me she was wearing it to work and I couldn't tell at all, and just how ridiculous does Pinklite actually sound? So I reached for Fix+ Matte instead, let's see how well you can work for an oily girl like me...
If anyone is going to put you through your paces when it comes to mattifying it's going to be me; I use a mattifying serum, and I powder like there is no tomorrow... Believe me, I've been an oily girl for years, I've worked out how to work with my oil. MAC described their Fix+ Mattifying Mist as a "lightweight mattifying spray that refreshes skin while instantly controlling shine and oil... without disturbing make up". What sets it aside from other setting sprays though? Well, MAC's Fix+ Mattifying Mist "contains powders, silica and other oil-absorbing agents to help set make up, rebalance and mattifying skin".
I've actually been reaching for MAC's Fix+ Mattifying Mist every single day since I finished my Pixi Makeup Fixing Mist, and I've barely made a dent in this. It really does instantly set my makeup and control the shine to my face, you can almost feel the oil being kept at bay but my face doesn't feel dry or heavy. I use this while I'm at work and at the end of a 12-hour shift, I'm not a shiny, sweaty mess (even in the crazy weather we had) so it's definitely doing something right! I think this might find a permanent place alongside my De-Slick from Urban Decay...

I love this as a primer as my skin frequently gets clogged with the ordinary primers. It makes my matt foundation to flow on my skin and when I set up my make up it makes it my highlighter and bronzer more intense. I like to spray this after few hours of wearing my foundation to make my makeup look fresh. The true is that there is no dupes of this product. I tried them all and Mac bit them all. If you like dewy fresh look then you will love it. I recommend the coconut one if you don't mind fragrance.

It smelt nice but I didn't know what it actually does. People say it's not a setting spray so what does it actually do? I don't know tbh. At the end of the day, sometimes my makeup would have melted so

I recently bought the coconut scented Fix+ and i am in love! so many uses, i use it before i start my makeup, and i use it after my skin care routine, its great to use before setting spray to stop your makeup looking cakey and dry, also during the day to refresh the look of your makeup, great for making powder products pop! and makes dried up pomades as good as new, although coconut is my favourite scent of them all they are all as equally amazing.

This is a nice mist that dries down quickly and holds makeup in place. I’ve used it as a prepping spray which is cooling and gives a light moisture to the skin. When I first started using this it gave a fine mist but I’ve found as there gets less product in the bottle you can see spots of the product on the face when sprayed, I’m not sure why?? I have the travel size but would purchase the full size however I’d like to try the coconut scented one.

It refreshes my face well on a hot day that I want to use the whole bottle at once, it doesn't make makeup stay longer for me but if my face is way to matte it melts everything in and makes it less matte (I honestly forgot the word for that)

I used previously the Estée Lauder fresh and refresh and I was waiting to finish it to get this one cause it is so famous... then I found how my old one was so good. This is not a setting spray it’s a primer. I have difficult skin and this is how Mac prep fix + works for me: after applying foundation I spray it on my sponge and I apply it on my face. It helps the foundation to look more natural. I know some people thinks this a waste but this is how it works on my skin u may want to try it too. If I spray before foundation nothing happens and if I spray at the end I can see the spray dots.

I'm not entirely sure whether this it 100% beneficial in my make up bag, but will continue to use it until it can convince me otherwise. I want it to work because the reviews are great, but feel that I am conflicted as I just don't know whether its actually working. I will continue to persevere with it. Although this, it is refreshing and light on the skin and hasn't caused me any breakouts. Wouldn't tell anyone not to buy it, however unsure on whether I will be buying again.

I have not been using this for that long but I am happy with it so far. It seems to help control how oily my skin can get in the heat and it makes my skin feel really soft and dewy. I can't say 100% that it makes my make up stay put all day BUT it does 'prep' my skin and my foundation/concealer looks much fresher after applying - I don't normally use primers, as for me personally, I don't like the idea of applying multiple layers of product on the skin - moisturiser, then primer, then foundation, concealer, then power , you get my drift ..but this feels so light and comfortable on the skin.
