There is a bit of debate as for the use of MAC's Fix+. Contrary to the name, it's not supposed to 'fix' your makeup (confusing much) but is meant to combat the powdery look that a lot of makeup can create in addition to refresh skin.
When winter rolls around I definitely have to step up my skincare regime with more heavy products to avoid makeup settling into pores and dry skin patches. Because of this I have mostly used this product as a pre-foundation product and to combat dryness throughout the day.
I found it to be very refreshing on the face, and particularly effective in soothing any tightness which allowed for a more smooth application when it came to applying my make up. I have avoided spraying the product directly over my full face after makeup application as I have been wearing liquid/gel based liners recently, and after painstakingly trying to get the eyes symmetrical (other liner wearers know what I'm talking about!) I don't fancy the chance of my liner bleeding. However that's just probably myself being overly cautious, as when I have used the product over my skin areas there was no running and it gave a more dewy/natural sheen to my matte effect foundation.
