Even the most flawlessly applied foundation can be ruined if it is not set properly, which I’m sure everyone’s experienced at some point or another. Between wet and dry powders, mineral powders, and setting sprays (many that suspiciously resemble water), it can be tough to find the right solution for your skin and makeup routine.

So, if you haven’t already met, let me introduce you to MAC Fix+. This is a product I’m rather new to, but one that I instantly loved after the first use. Before I purchased it I did read many online reviews from people who used it for various things. The majority use it as a setting spray, but others also use it as a makeup base, eye shadow primer, and skin refresher for the drier months. Some even apply it to their brushes before applying makeup, as they say it results in a smoother application.

I’ve tried it a few ways, but I found it really works best when used as it was meant to be used, as a final setting spray over foundation. I’ve been using it for about 2 weeks now and I love it. It does absolute wonders in keeping my foundation in place and helping to avoid that flat, over powdered look.

The only drawback to this product is the packaging. The first few times you use it the spray comes out in a lovely fine mist. However, after a few uses I did find that it clogs up and the spray comes out in heavier globs. It then takes a quick hard burst of spray to clear it out and then you’re good to go for another few sprays. That’s not ideal as it does waste a fair amount of product, but it is the best setting spray I’ve come across so far. I’ll live with it until I come across something better, and I will definitely re-buy.

Have you happened across the perfect setting spray? We’d love to hear about it, so please share with us in a comment!
