I woke up extremely early today and took Angie to the vet for a regular check up. Carrying her around is like working out in the gym. Thanks to her, I was sweating like crazy by the time I got to the doctor's office. So, I was sitting there with all the dogs and cats around me. I can already notice that my makeup was melting off of my face, so I took out my Make Up For Ever Mist & Fix ($27). Yes, I was touching up my makeup with the bulldog staring at me.
More about the product : A light and comfortable spray that sets all types of makeup and prolongs hold, even under extreme conditions. For busy women who want to go from work to an evening dinner out and don't have time to go home for touch ups, spray mist and fix on a thick tissue and pat gently on the face to refresh your makeup. Then apply a veil of compact powder to give your complexion a velvety texture for the evening.
I would say that this is an excellent alternative to the MAC F+ ($18). They pretty much do the same thing. Spray a thin layer over your tired face or foundation, and it instantly refreshes the look. I didn't notice any differences between the two products. The only flaw with the Mist & Fix is that this contains a very strong perfumed fragrance. It is quite strong when first applied but quickly disappears after a short while. I would only recommend the MAC one or this alternative if you really feel a need for these products. Otherwise, any hydrating sprays such as the Evian Large Mineral Water Spray ($15) or even a bottled water with spray cap would do the same trick with much more affordable prices.
