Its like MAC's Fix+ but better...

I love, love, love Mac's fix+. Its a must in my makeup routine. It feels and smells good. I spray it on my face before and after I put my makeup. Also, I use it as a refresher when its too hot outside just to keep my face feeling cool and moisturize. On the other hand, I recently discovered Mark's Mist Opportunity, which is a multi tasking refresher and, I must say that fix+ has found its competition.
Mac's FIX+
An aqua-spritz of vitamin and minerals, infused with a calm-the-skin blend of green tea, chamomile, cucumber, topped off with the fresh, natural, energizing scent of Sugi. Adds radiance, finishes makeup. Spray it on. Skin drinks it up! (source: Mac website)

  • can be used before makeup application.

  • can be used to set your makeup.

  • it smells really nice.

  • can be used for foiling eye shadows.

  • gets rid of powdery or cakey look on the face.

  • can be used anytime of the day to refresh your face.

  • 100 ml/3.4 US fl oz

  • price: $18.00

A multi-tasking refresher. A light weight facial mist that refreshes the skin, minimize pores and sets makeup in place. Its for all skin types. This clear, alcohol-free mist contains uplifting plant extracts that replenish skin with important nutrients. Lemongrass and grapefruit extracts cleanse. Kiwi extract's antioxidants help protect the skin against environmental pollutants. (source: Mark's skincare brochure)

  • can be used after cleansing or anytime face could use a quick pick-me-up.

  • can be used on face after applying makeup to help your look stay in place.

  • gets rid of pwdery or cakey look on the face.

  • can be used foiling eye shadows

  • smells like baby powder in my opinion instead of the fruit extracts. i was hoping for a more stronger scent of the fruit extracts (i have a weird nose).

  • 200 ml/6.7 fl oz.

  • price: $8.00

I honestly like both of them and I find myself alternating between the two. As you can see they're practically the same in terms of their purpose. They both smells and feels good. The only difference I found was their scent, size and price. Mac's Fix+ has a stronger scent, more expensive and has less product than the Mark's Mist Opportinity.
Fix+ is $18.00
100 ml/3.4 fl oz
Mist Opportunity is $8.00
200ml/6.7 fl oz
Mark's Mist Opportunity can be purchased at my E-Botique
click on shop, the MARK tab :)

  3. Never tried both but I love products with comparison to MAC quality for lesser price, Thanks for the review!

  4. wow! a MAC Fix+ dupe?? love it! I've been seeing Mark products on line!!! I hope it gets easily accessible for international buyers!

  5. oh wow! mark has a mist? I'm always interested in facial sprays, I love my clinique one :)

  6. Cute!! I've been wanting to try the Mark mist. Have you seen the metallic earrings? I so want them! hahaha. They're cute.

    Ahhh.. Really? The wrong product? Sucks! Customer service totally lags for me, but it does get it done.

  7. wow!
    how cool

    a great alternative for half the price..
    that's such a great find!

  8. im deff guna try that mark spray thanksss :)

  9. winner halos naka menos ka php500., sana meron ng MARK dito :C

  10. ohhhh. Dont think we have that here though. Was going to do a review on mac fix+. you gotta love that stuff! :D

  11. Nice. I must try Mist Opportunity when I have a chance.

  12. thanks for the dupes! :) It's hard for me to get MARK stuff here so I guess I'm stuck with fix+ :P I don't mind though because it does last a long time ^_^

  13. i am definitely going to look out for that, it sounds like a great product!

  14. hey that's a great alternative since it's 50% cheaper than Mac's! Great for me with all my $$$$ furniture buying these days!

    Hehe I saw Heidi Montag's performance on Miss Universe, Donald Trump must be really suffering from a recession to hire her to perform. Her outfit reminds me so much of Britney Spears' outfit from the MTV music award (?) like 8 years ago!

  15. im def gonna try this out.
    & why the hell haven't i followed your blog earlier? you're gorgeous, babe :)

  16. I love mac spray fix! esp for the summer so refreshing! i wanted to work out so bad but Dr wouldn't let me. my pubic bone split when I was pregnant with my second child. So by my third child it just got worse. long story short I was suppose to wait a year to work out but I'm only allow to do light weight work out nothing hardcore.. The food diet really help and played a very big roll though.. purple are sooo beautiful! There's so much you can do with it.. add pinks to it orange, black and ect.. love your blog btw!

  17. OH! thanks for the review!! gonna try when i get a chance.

  18. It does smell amazing, so refreshing! I might change the bottle though so it sprays more evenly on my face, i find it difficult the way it is now!

  19. That was for the Mac one, unfortunately I dont think I can find the other one..

  20. Thanks for sharing! I gotta try those..
