M.A.C Cosmetics Prep + Prime Fix + Review
M.A.C Prep + Prime Fix + is a blend of vitamin and minerals, infused with a blend of green tea, chamomile, and cucumber. The spritz has a natural scent of sugi and helps set makeup. Available in Rose, Lavender, Coconut and Original.
This is a great spray when used for the purpose it’s designed for. That sounds like a no-brainer, but I admit to using it as a refresher spray on more than one occasion and it definitely doesn’t excel in that area, particularly over lighter coverage makeup.
As a primer, though, it lends just the right amount of tackiness to the face to help foundation stick longer. I would recommend holding it as far away from your face as possible, as it can get more spritz close-up than mist.
I use this product every day to hydrate and refresh my skin prior to applying makeup, and throughout! I love to spritz some on my beauty sponge when blending foundation and find that it helps to melt all the products together seamlessly. I even use this alone on some days when I just want to add some moisture to my skin! It makes a big difference and is worth the hype.
It’s very lightweight, I can’t tell it is on my skin, other than the fact that everything lasts longer, and it smells really fresh too. Most importantly this is one of those products that I feel confident in using liberally, as it’s almost completely natural.
I now use it regularly after applying any body foundation or concealer. Secondly it amplifies the pigment of any of my shimmery eyeshadows.
I spritz the eyeshadow brush a couple of times and then dip into the eyeshadow and apply to my lids. You can get the same effect if you spritz straight after applying any shimmery shadow to your lids but I end up getting it in my eyes (don’t ask!) so have stopped doing that.
