Perfect for dewy skin
Although it's not the setting spray which it's often mistaken for, MAC Fix + is an amazing product with many uses. You can use it as a base, or after make-up and it gives you a beautiful glowy look. It also helps with oxidisation and is great to spray on after a few hours of wear as a pick me up.

Holy Grail product!
I always heard people raving about this but I've never tried it until last month, when I got a gift card and purchased a bottle. Oh my god - if you have dry skin, you need this! It takes away all the flakiness and cakiness, and leaves your skin with a dewy finish. It also sets your makeup so you don't have to worry about hugging people and leaving marks on their clothes. I'm also really loving that it's only a dollar or two more expensive than MAC Fix+ in the USA- excellent job MAC!

Doesn't make my makeup last longer but takes away cakiness
This is actually one of the more affordable and better-value-for-money Mac products in Australia. It is a lightweight hydrating spray with a pleasant smell that takes away the powdery/cakey look of makeup and leaves you looking naturally dewy. I don't believe this makes my foundation last longer and for some reason, it has a tendency to muck up my eyeliner and eyeshadow so I usually spray this after I have 'put on my face' but not my eyes and lips. I like how strong the spray is and how evenly the mist is distributed and I almost feel like keeping the bottle instead of doing a back2mac. It dries to a slightly tacky finish (like freshly applied foundation) on the skin, which I'm not particularly fond of, but it does seem to make my makeup more smudge-proof. I rarely get the cakey foundation look since most of my foundations have light-medium coverage and I usually only apply 1 layer but when I do, this really helps with blending everything in nicely.
Spray on an eyeshadow brush and pack the eyeshadow on your lids and you have the wet eyeshadow technique smack down
Dry/normal/combination skin. Would not recommend for oily skin as it tends to make you look quite shiny unless you're going for that look.

Photoshop in a bottle
I was watching a makeup tutorial by Angel Merino, and he raved about it! He honestly was obsessed with Fix +. So I decided that given the great review's on here and Angel's comments I would give it a go.
It was on my wish list for my Secret Santa and I was so lucky that she gifted it to me, (Thankyou again so much)!
It honestly is amazing! It really is Photoshop in a bottle, it just makes all my makeup blend and settle. I still achieve a dewy finish whilst applying powder. It set's my face and my makeup lasts all day! No patches or red spots. It is my Holy Grail product and I cannot live without it. I have got my friends obsessed with this product as well!
You only need 1-2 sprays and it's perfect! The bottle lasts for ages!

I never knew I needed it til I tried it
Having only recently discovered this product, I am now on to my second bottle. I started to use Fix+ as I found that my make up was not staying on throughout the day and it didn't have the refined look I was after. Now using it, I make sure that I spray a few mists when I'm finished applying my makeup. It certainly also gives your face a refreshed feeling and the smell is also really pleasant

I bought this along with the MAC Softening Lotion on the advice of a MAC makeup artist. Its designed to hydrate the skin prior to going to the park and secondly set makeup. I felt that it did give my skin a mositure boost the time that I have used it. THe product comes in a clear bottle with a spray nozzle. When used, it sprays a fine mist over the skin. I primarily use it prior to makeup application to add a boost of mosturise. Definitely worth a try.

Dewy finish but do not overspray!
Love this finishing spray to set my makeup and get rid of the powdery foundation look. Blends all the makeup together and settles the foundation. Refreshes the skin and also has a lovely scent. The large bottle lasts quite a while as you only need 1-2 spritz for the face. Will definitely repurchase!

Essential for a flawless finish
I love this product! I MAY be slightly addicted to the smell as well as the performance.
I was introduced to Fix+ a few months ago and I haven't looked back, I use a full coverage foundation and have oily combination skin. I use the Fix+ before applying my foundation, I then spray again before putting on my setting powder; add all my blush, eyeshadow, highlighter etc then spray again. My makeup lasts 10 or more hours without shifting. It is great on hot days to refresh the face.
The bottle features a slide/lock on the nozzle which is great for travel or in your handbag. A generous sized bottle for the price.

Not the most perfect setting spray, but
I have found a way to use it that just -works-. I spray it directly on my powder brush, and then swirl it into my Rimmel Stay Matte powder. It makes the powder pretty difficult to use without it (why I chose a cheaper powder for this), but it sets the powder onto the skin, especially on the nose where I find makeup just has a tendency to go away. Love it.

Could be better
I have been using the MAC Fix+ for close to 2 years and have found that it does assist in setting makeup. I like that when sprayed on it transforms the makeup to a finished and refined look (especially for powder). The downside of the product is that for oily skin it does not increase the longevity of the makeup - I still experience makeup being rubbed off and being patchy at the end of the day. The price is a little on the expensive side but as you do receive a large bottle it is worthwhile. Overall a good product but there is better out there.
If running low on the product be aware that the spray droplets are larger and that for powder it can dry and leave light spots on your face. At this stage you would need to use your fingers to lightly blend the fluid out.
