Great product


I've just started using this product and so far I'm loving it. As other reviewers have suggested, I am using it as a primer and finishing mist. It's left my skin looking bright and dewy.

Not sure


The shimmer is so subtle you can barely notice it. I think the regular fix it + does the same job.
  1. It works but the shimmer really doesn't show


    My makeup looks pretty and dewy and it lasts well when I use it as a setting spray. The shimmer looks pretty in the bottle, but it's so subtle that you can barely see it when sprayed on. I honestly cannot tell the difference between this and other setting sprays. Just don't expect very obvious shimmer.

  3. Summer glow sorted!


    First time using a setting spray and I'm HOOKED. My friend recommended prep and prime, and I opted for the gold shimmer. I love a dewy finish and it makes any foundation finish look amazing. It's quite shinny in the sun but that's the look I go for.
  4. Versatile


    I love this so much. It makes my skin look refreshed and dewy. I use as both primer and setting spray.
  5. Really love it!


    verified purchaser
    My first time using a setting spray but have become a convert - make up lasts all day and looks fresh. I've started using a powder to set makeup as well which made my skin look too matte for my liking so finishing off with a spritz of this is great. I really like the shimmer in it as it's like a all over highlight and makes me look refreshed.
  6. So shimmery


    verified purchaser
    I love this! So glowy on my skin. Doesn’t feel dry once on or anything. Super light and refreshing
  7. Very gold!


    verified purchaser
    I got the goldlite and the first time I used it I used too much and was VERY shimmery. I've learned to hold it further back and just do one or two light spritz. It has a gorgeous finish.
  8. Glowing


    The gold lite one adds a lovely golden glow to your skin for a summery look and it takes the powdery look off
  9. LOVE!


    I can't fault this product. It's so versatile. I use it under and over my makeup and also for eye shadow. It leaves the skin looking so fresh and luminous. I will always continue to re-purchase.
  10. Pink


    I used the whole bottle of the pink and loved it! The half mark is for the use of the bottle towards the end.
    The glitter comes out in big drops and you have to blend it out. I am not sure if too much can be done to the packaging to fix this..
  11. Love it!


    I bought the goldlite colour and it has the perfect amount of shimmer. Subtle and not over the top. I have been using it with studio fix powder foundation & it gives such a beautiful finish.
  12. worst purchase ever


    This is the worst purchase I have ever made. It is tacky, feels sticky, smells like chemicals and the shimmer looks so bad
  13. Goldlite


    A spray that hydrates sets and refreshes while adding a subtle gold glow! It’s not chunky glitter and makes you look lit from within. The smell is so lovely and refreshing
  14. Love the shimmer!


    I love the shimmer fix+ formula. I feel like it add a nice glow to the skin. I love that the shimmer is not super noticeable and is quite subtle.
  15. Great, Subtle Glow, Makes Foundation Look Better


    The perfect amount of glow, it's absolutely beautiful on the skin and makes it look like a natural radiance from within, can't do my make up without the goldlite!
  16. Not sure


    The shimmer is so subtle you can barely notice it. I think the regular fix it + does the same job.

  18. Sets my makeup perfectly


    After using fix+ for years I was recommended to try this. It sets your makeup, helps your skin look more like skin rather than makeup sitting on the skin (gets rid of the powdery look) plus leaves a subtle shimmer. I’ve repurchased it about 4 times now.
  19. Love it

    Chele Pagno

    I love using the MAC Prep and Prime Fix. It sets my make up so well and it has this nice dewy glow finish. It also keeps my face moisturized and leaves it so fresh. I love it!
  20. great spray


    The bottle definitely looks pretty intense but once you spray it on, it gives a little extra glow to the skin without being too much. The nozzle also locks which is nice
  21. Shimmer me


    I love the shimmer / glitter in this. I’ve used Mac setting spray before (original) but I love this for a night look because of the shimmer. Make sure you shake before spraying for an even look
  22. Glowy


    Loving the goldlite, can spray a little uneven though
  23. Prep & Prime


    i do love this product however i like the one without the shimmer better! i apply before and after my foundation helps keep my makeup on for longer!
  24. As good as the original


    Same amazing smell as the original and the same make up lasting power. I don't notice the glitter in it, but it makes my makeup look very glowy and my skin looks healthy after it's sprayed.
  25. Lovely subtle shimmer.


    I use this spray after I have applied all of my makeup. It makes my skin looks more dewy and my makeup not looked so caked on. I also use it to refresh my makeup during the day, and it makes my makeup looking fresh. The mist is also very fine which is good. I would recommend this to people looking for a subtle glow to the face and not over the top glitter spray looking like a disco ball.
  26. Very shimmery


    leaves such a nice overall flattering glow to your face, can look a little harsh in flash photography making you look a little oily all over your face, but nothing too bad. great product though!
  27. Very shimmery


    I like putting this on to finish my makeup look to make my face a little more dewy and fresh. The sparkles can be flattering however towards the end of the bottle maybe a little
    Too much
  28. Love this


    Beautiful glow and easy to apply
  29. Glowing


    Love this, removes my powdered foundations powdery look, feel light, looks dewy.
  30. like a glittery setting spray


    really glittery and smells great
    only problem is that it can come out a bit patchy and splotchy so to avoid the dots on your face you have to spray it far away and like a mist so in a continuous motion so it doesn't just drop it patches
  31. Love it!


    I've been loving a more dewy look lately and given that Fix+ is a staple in my makeup routine, I thought I would give Pinklite a try. I absolutely adore it! It gives such a beautiful luminescence to the skin and gives you that lit from within glow. I adore this product, all the amazing benefits of the original with added glow!
  32. doesnt spray evenly


    I wanted to give this a good review as I l;ove MAC products, but unfortunately the pump bottle doesn't spray evenly over the face, leaving me have to touch up with my beauty blender after, such a shame.
  33. perfect for setting body highlight


    defs would avoid if you have oily skin but works well to set body highlight and contour
  34. Nice product


    Nice setting spray. Loved the smell. Dewy finish. Holds make up nicely. Little too glittery though, would have liked more a subtle glitter
  35. Dewy finish

    Regina Fuentes

    Love the dewy finish this brings
  36. Really wanted to love this but I don't!


    I love the idea of a spray being able to make your face dewy. Unfortunately for me it was just chunks of glitter on my face and actually ruined my makeup.
  37. Prefer the original


    this product is really great if you're going for a super glowy/dewy look and i have received compliments while wearing it however i find once you get to the end of the product it leaves obvious chunks of glitter rather than looking glowy and shimmery.
  38. With a little shimmer


    this is okay! with a touch of shimmer! i prefer without but its still cute!


    This product is beautiful, the glow it gives is bomb!! X
  40. Nice but not all that shimmery


    Just as good as the scented sprays but I don’t think it added a lot of shimmer which is why I bought it.
  41. Best shimmery setting spray


    This is by far my favourite setting spray with subtle shimmer. Sprays well and evenly. I put this over my makeup to make it more dewy. And if I want more glow and last I also put it under or even just on its own as a bit of glow. Love and will definitely purchase again and again
  42. The bomb


    I use this before AND after my makeup and it has changed EVERYTHING! I love love love this product. Will promote to all my girlfriends!
  43. Yes and no


    This gives me a shimmery look but I find that at times I do not look the finished look while at other times it looks evenly spread on the skin
  44. Easy glow without looking glittery


    Love the glow from this product! The best addition to one of my favourite products. Make sure you shake before use though.
  45. Prep & Prime is exactly what it does!!


    I love this spray! I use it on top of my Mac primer before I add foundation! I also use it as a setting spray to keep my makeup in place. The only problem I have is when I don’t shake it properly and spray too close to my face, which leaves gold blotches everywhere which you can’t blend out. However if you use it properly you’ll have no problem! As well as this, I use it to wet my eyeshadow brushe...

  46. Fun twist on a cult product!


    This gives me a beautiful glow while still setting my makeup - I love it!
  47. Incredible Shimmer


    I have the pinky spray and i is absolutely lovely, gives the face a really beautiful warmth and glow, absolutely adore Mac setting sprays!
  48. Gives a golden glow!


    This has a beautiful finish on the skin and looks lovely throughout the day!
    Also looks great sprayed over the shoulders and neck on a night out as it sparkles in flash photography like an instant photo shop beautiful glow!
  49. Glowing


    Love this not only for how it sets my makeup, but for the beautiful glow it brings to my skin. Love love love.
  50. Holy Grail


    This setting spray is perfection for dry skin!! Gives the most stunning, luminous appearance to the skin and truly helps to make your base last all day. I have tried so many setting sprays and I ALWAYS come back to this one
  51. LOVE


    I love this product!!! It is my absolute new favourite. I would like to get the scent of this product and get it in a perfume bottle. The mist is very fine, unlike some mists I have used in the past. It helps to take away the powdery look after you have set your foundation with a translucent powder. Also when you are using a chrome eyeshadow, wet your brush with some fix plus, dip your brush in th...

  52. A lovely subtle shimmer


    This gave a lovely subtle shimmer to my face. A nice product the only downside is the pump you need to be careful cause sometimes I get the product all in one spot and it is quite a wet product. They could definitely improve on the pump/sprayer other than that a nice product.
  53. Underwhelming...


    I had high expectations for this and was slightly disappointed.
    I brought the shade Pinklite and could not see any difference from the original one.
    It was not very illuminating & did not give me the end result I was expecting.
    Very underwhelming.. I may try the Iconic version instead.
  54. Subtle but Effective.


    This beauty has a slight shimmer in it without being too much. It's great to apply before powder highlighter to ensure your highlighter stays all day. Great for a dewy finish on the chest and décolletage too.
  55. Just a subtle shimmer, it's really nice


    I love using this as it just gives a nice, light shimmer.
  56. Great


    Absolutely love these face mists, the pinklite is my personal favourite, it just makes your skin look so nice! Great for a luminous finish
  57. so nice


    makes me so glowy! I love shaking it and seeing the sparkles! It works well and looks so pretty!!
  58. Gold light is stunning for a night out


    I love this for when I go out at night. It makes my makeup glow, and compliments my highlighter so perfectly. I reccomend this if you wear fake tan too.
  59. Love it


    Love this very refreshing gives you a glow
  60. Glowing Beauty


    I love MAC Fix Plus, but this put the icing on the cake or should I say shimmer. Spray for an extra radiance and glow. Fantastic way to set and add that extra omg to your final look!! Thank you MAC for this fantastic product!!
  61. Shine Bright Like a Diamond (or a Kardashian!)


    The perfect way to set your makeup and give you an insta worthy glow that also looks magical in real life! I love how fresh this spray feels and how it adds an ethereal glow to my face as well as helping my makeup stay put. It also adds a beautiful glow to your décolletage and skin! It’s a soft focus filter that is fun to use and cooling on a hot day. You won’t regret buying this!
  62. So good


    I will repurchase this product forever, along with the range of MAC prep and prime mists. They are amazing and so versatile, I also love that they double as a primer and setting spray. They are lightweight and refreshing on the skin also. This one is especially good for that dewy no makeup look
  63. Glowy Perfection


    AMAZING! Perfect for when you want that dewy complexion - works exactly like the original. Helps makeup last, and adds just the perfect amount of glitter.
  64. Glowing


    Super glowy and shimmery. Leaves glitter on the clothes so I would rather stick to the original Fix + and add highlighter.
  65. Glowing!!!


    I feel you have to really drench the skin to get its full effect. I apply a decent amount before starting my makeup and gently tap it into the skin with a beauty blender. To finish off my look I spritz again all over the face and décolletage to get a real glowing effect. Just don't have your clothes on when spraying as I find it does fall on and stick.
  66. Not what I expected


    There is 0 gold or shimmer when you spray it on. No different to the standard prep and prime, which I do like but I bought this because I wanted shimmer
  67. Alright


    Its cute with the shimmer and does the same good job as the usual fix plus, but personally id stick to the normal one unless I was going natural and wanted a bit of shimmer just on my bare face for makeup free days.
  68. Pinklite is the one!


    Absolutely love these face mists, the pinklite is my personal favourite, it just makes your skin look so nice! 100% recommend
  69. Gorgeous glow!


    Love this product! It leaves a gorgeous glow, and sets my makeup well. It feels more watery compared to other setting sprays which I find can be quite sticky
  70. Dewy skin for oil skins


    I have oily combo skin and there is noway I would be able to wear foundation without setting powder. So the dewy skin look was out of the picture for me. This spray is absolutely fantastic, I can still set with powder then spray this all over for an dewy glowing skin look.
  71. Nice and shimmery!


    I can use this as a primer and to set my makeup to give my skin a nice shimmer. It also enhances my highlighter. Love it!
  72. Love


    So I'm obviously a mac lover and this is a great product too. Lovely light shimmer for a glowing look.
  73. Shimmery set


    No other spray keeps my makeup smudge-free and fresh all day! This has quickly become a staple in my beauty bag
  74. lovely shimmer


    I usually just use the original, but am so pleased I tried this too. I purchased the gold shimmer and will try the other colour next time. I like to use it on my neck and shoulders too.
  75. Refreshing and Hydrating


    It leaves my skin feeling refreshed and hydrated! It also leaves a really nice dewy and glowy look. Just make sure you shake the bottle before you use it to mix the glitter together :)
  76. Lovely setting spray


    Mac setting sprays are great and I love the addition of the shimmer! It gives me a lovely glowing look and radiance. Also great as a body spray to add shimmer. Would definitely recommend
  77. Dewy and Refreshing


    I purchased this in the gold as my skin is a light peachy colour with slight yellow undertones. I definitely much prefer spritzing over my face without make up! It really adds a nice dewy refreshing look to my skin. I'm definitely going to purchase again but in the pink which is going to be great for summer and keeping my skin glowy! :)
  78. Glow Getters Dream Product


    This limited edition Prep + Prime spray is the perfect marriage of the original Mac Fix Spray combined with a gorgeous shimmery/iridescent sparkle throughout the formula. Not to mention this is also very aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Any makeup lover must have this in their collection or at least as a collectors item. I love the extra glow it gives when setting the face and honestly any produ...

  79. Love the glow


    This product is wonderful. I use it in so way many’s. I love it as a before primer and then after to set my face, and a little pick me up during the day. Also great to use on those makeup free days for that subtle glow.
  80. Amazing


    I didn't know I needed this until I bought it! So great and looks super dewy and pretty under makeup


    I purchased this in the gold shade it gives your skin a over all slight glow I use it with or without make up definitely will repurchase
  82. Leaves you looking glowing!


    I have both the original and this product and I love both. This one is great for those days you need a little more glow in the face. Ensure you give it a good shake before use! Overall a great product as always from Mac.
  83. Cult classic


    Mac fix plus is such an iconic multi use product. Who doesn’t have a bottle in their cupboard? Cult classic for a reason. Highly recommend. The added shimmer in this version is a nice touch. Looks pretty on the skin
  84. Gorgeous


    Really nice for creating an extra dewy dimension to the face.
  85. Beautiful over finished makeup


    I've always loved the original Mac Fix + but this is my new fave. It does everything the original did but also adds a beautiful luminescence to my skin without looking too over the top. It leaves my face looking fresh and glowy. Perfect for summer! I bought this is both shades and can't fault it. I wasn't sure about the Goldlite shade on pale skin before purchasing it, but now I'm so glad I did.
  86. Fantastic bump up from ordinary Fix


    I’m so happy I bought this ! I’m a big fan of the regular fix plus but the added shimmer kicks it up a knotch ! I purchased gold lite and it gives me a beautiful dewy golden glow all day ! (Don’t forget to shake it up before use otherwise the shimmer gets a bit chunky on your face )
  87. Luminous


    This spray ensures my makeup stays in place all day and has quickly become a staple in my beauty bag!
  88. Great

    am so happy adore finally stocks mac, i love this setting spray for summer for a quick refresher and that glow from within, super hydrating and long lasting too!!
  90. Radiant glow


    This is amazing! I use it before applying my primer and then I spray this over my face after using a powder! I love it!
  91. Glowing finish !

    Ellisa (Adore Beauty staff)

    Perfect to give you an all over glow before a night out or if you are after an extra little something to brighten your make-up ! Smells amazing and is super refreshing !
  92. Pretty in a bottle

    Danii (Adore Beauty Staff)

    The latest in MAC's Prep + Prime Fix range is my fave! The super subtle yet feminine sheen is so pretty in the bottle. Not to mention, it's super flattering in creating a natural, dewy finished look. Big points to it being sheer, yet still pearlescent, a point loss because I recommend applying mascara post setting spray!
  93. Surprisingly versatile

    Shannon (Adore Beauty Staff)

    I wrote a review for Fix+, but I actually use both the non-shimmer and the shimmer one in Pinklite.

    I'll just paste across my initial review of the original, but first I'll tell you why I like the shimmer one specifically, since there's not much difference other than the shimmer itself, as far as I can tell.

    When I first saw the Fix+ in Pinklite, I assumed it was a gimmic...
