Good Bye, MAC Fix+

MAC Fix+, 3.4oz for $18
I used to love Fix+. I've used it every time I've applied foundation for the last... oh jeez, I don't even know. I talked about its uses in an early post, if you recall. A bottle lasts me about 6 months, so at $18 a bottle it is actually one of the cheaper skincare items that I used. Well, I ran out of the stuff two weeks ago, but didn't get around to buying a new bottle. Instead, I decided to add some rosewater to the empty Fix+ bottle and found a great dupe. Application wise, I can't tell the difference between the two at all. It doesn't feel any different on my skin, it's as effective at keeping my foundation from caking and refreshes my makeup just as well. Basically, what I'm saying is that heck, I was very wrong and that to me Fix+ is now just an expensive bottle of scented water.
Sure, there are vitamins and oils and such, but have they really effected my skin in any way? Nope, don't think so. While some people like the scent of this liquid, I personally don't really care for it.
Heritage Products Rosewater,
8oz for around $5
Some homemade versions of Fix+ call for glycerin, but I found that unless your skin is excessively dry it probably won't be necessary in addition to the rosewater. But if your skin is dry, Heritage Products (the brand that makes the rosewater that I buy at Whole Foods) actually does make a rosewater glycerin spray for about $5.

All products shown were purchased by me, for my own use.
