Friday First | Pixi Makeup Fixing Mist

I've all but finished this product now, that's how long it's taken me to write up this review...

I own a few too many setting sprays, I always seem to pick a new one up when I'm out shopping, but I'm super faithful to my Urban Decay. I'm now on a setting spray ban, and determined to actually use up all my other setting sprays and try them all out before I buy a replacement for my Urban Decay; so here I am, kicking things off with the Makeup Fixing Mist from Pixi. Pixi state that their Makeup Fixing Mist "prolongs makeup wear... keeps it from moving, melting, and settling into fine lines or pores", contains "rose water and green tea... [that] comforts, protects and balances skin" and somehow "adds a soft-focus finish". As well as setting your makeup, Pixi claim that their Makeup Fixing Mist can "refresh makeup during the day", and can somehow "correct over-powdering" (pixibeauty.co.uk), sounds like the wonder product doesn't it?


I grabbed the Makeup Fixing Mist when I grabbed the Fast Flash Facial! and if I'm honest, it's purely because I saw it contained rose water; what rose has done for my skin lately has been amazing. I've tried a few different setting sprays, and for me, the one thing that can definitely make or break it for me is the spray. I find the Makeup Fixing Mist from Pixi has a soft spray, but it's insanely strong at the same time. Basically, spray this too close to your face and you'll just be a wet mess, so I do have to hold it as far away as possible while holding my head back in some weird fashion.


The soft focus finish claim is something I totally believe in; I always find that my makeup had that extra flawless edge to it when I'm using this setting spray which is something I live for. I wouldn't say that my makeup is prolonged any more than it is when I'm using my beloved Urban Decay, however, I will honestly stand by that claim of my makeup not moving, melting, or settling. When I'm using the Makeup Fixing Mist my makeup will hold for ages, and then all of a sudden I'll notice it breaking around my nose, and I'd say I only ever notice my makeup fading rather than anything else when using this. I can't comment on the use of it to refresh my makeup; I'm an oily girl and I'm often re-powdering rather than refreshing. Also, I have no idea if I've ever overpowerded in my life, or how on earth this would fix it... But there you go.


Will I continue to use Pixi's Makeup Fixing Mist? By the time I'm finally writing up this review, I've basically finished this bottle. But I've used it on nearly a daily basis, and this has lasted me a good few months to be fair.
Will I repurchase Pixi's Makeup Fixing Mist? I actually think I will, and I think it will earn a place next to my beloved Urban Decay Setting Spray in my daily makeup stash. I love the look it adds to my makeup, the subtle scent, and the way it feels on my skin.
Would I recommend Pixi's Makeup Fixing Mist? I find setting sprays are a very personal thing and can be very difficult to recommend. However, if you're after a setting spray that isn't heavy and you'll definitely forget that you have on then definitely give this a go. Overlook the strong, yet soft spray and give it a go.
Overall score out of 5? A 3.5. The look the Makeup Fixing Mist adds to my makeup on a daily basis is 100% worth it, along with the subtle scent and the cooling factor that it seems to have. However, I'm not all for the spray action on this bottle; I love how soft the spray is, but it will also soak my face to the point that I have to stretch both my arm and my neck to get an even spray when using this.
