Dupe For Mac Fix Plus

Jul 20, 2016 Another good foundation dupe is for the MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation ($27). Try the NYX Stay Matte but Not Flat Powder Foundation ($9.50) as a cheaper option. The MAC Prep + Prime Skin primer will cost you $31. Try the Rimmel Stay Matte Primer for only $6.50.

If there is one product that I see Makeup Artists continuously use in tutorials it's Fix+ by Mac: 'Helps create an even surface for a smooth makeup application.' I've always been intrigued to see if it would make a difference to the finish of my makeup and when I found a dupe for it on Pinterest I had to give it a try. I picked up a bottle of the Nivea Refreshing Toner and also bought a travel sized spray bottle from Superdrug to transfer it into.

This multipurpose makeup fixing mist from E.L.F is one of the most affordable MAC Fix Plus dupes available in the market. It gives you a matte finish and is infused with vitamins B & E which are quite beneficial for the skin. This mist is great for oily skin and lasts well as the quantity is good for the price. Check price on Amazon. This has become my FAVORITE setting sprays. This has quickly taken the place of both my urban decay all nighter and my mac fix plus. It is so similar to mac fix plus being multi use. I use it to intensify pigment hydrate the face and of course set the face.

Mac Fix+ and the Nivea Refreshing Toner are both water based products with similar ingredients such as glycerin and hydrogenated caster oil.

As I suffer from dry/dehydrated skin I find this so refreshing and hydrating to apply before makeup and after I set it so that it appears less 'powdery.'

Skin Refresher/ Finishing Mist NOT a setting spray.

Best Dupe For Mac Fix Plus

Spritz onto beauty blender before applying foundation for a more natural finish.
Spritz onto eyeshadow brush before applying baked/shimmer eyeshadows to give a more vibrant effect.
Spray after setting with powder so the powder sets into your skin and the finish is less 'cakey'.
Use with gel liner that has hardened in the pot to break up the product so that it will glide on easily.

The Nivea Refreshing Toner retails for €4.79 for 200ml in comparison to Mac Fix+ which costs around €18.50 for only 100ml.
If you have any makeup or skincare dupes I would love to hear them!
Mac fix plus spray review

There is a simple -yet magic- recipe that is gonna turn your high-end setting spray almost into a useless product(!).

The natural ingredients of this DIY setting spray give a really dewy finish and help a lot on easy blending on foundation and concealer.

Comparing this to MAC Mineralize Charged Water (which I bought as MAC Fix plus has been always out of stock), it’s definately a win-win-win! I find the DIY setting spray’s scent much more sweet and natural -definately not chemical- and it is also much more helping on giving a luminous base that comes from within as it offers high hydration.

You can use it prior your foundation and before you blend the liquid products on your face in order to avoid a cakey finish and light/sheer the texture of any heavy foundation.

What you will need:

  • Water (2 parts)
  • Glycerin (1 part)
  • Rose water (1 part)
  • Spray bottle

For a rose water-free version use 3 parts water and 1 part glycerin. If you have really oily skin, you can use more water and rose water and less glycerin.

It will feel even fresher on the face and last longer, if you keep it in your fridge. It’s preferable to use small spray bottles -as well- in order to be able to carry it in you makeup bag, everyday bag etc.

Overall, I am super satisfied by the quality of this DIY product which cost me -in total- less than 10 euros (rosewater 3,5 euros, glycerin 3,30 euros and bottle 2,50 euros) and also having the opportunity to create maaany mL of setting spray for such a low price.
