MAC Mineralize Charged Water Skin Hydrating Mist Review

Hi Girls,

I was away from IMBB for long, but since I am back now, I would be bombarding you with my reviews now. I have many weaknesses and MAC is one of them. I always wanted to try everything from them and I had heard so many good reviews about the MAC Fix+ that when I was doing my wedding shopping, I went to the MAC store to buy it.

The MUA suggested me to buy this instead, she told me as my wedding was in November and that too in North-Indian winters, this would be a better option to make my face look dewy and fresh. I loved this the moment the MUA applied it on me before makeup. Let me come back to the review.

Before moving ahead, I would inform you that I have fairly normal skin which is a bit dry in the winters. My only expectation with this product was to make my skin dewy and fresh looking. Did it succeed? You will know in a little while.

My Experience with MAC Mineralize Charged Water Skin Hydrating Mist:

Well, this has been a great find for me, especially for winters.  I use it before makeup and it energizes my skin so well. It makes my skin look fresh and dewy the whole day. I have not personally used this to set makeup as my makeup is hardly powdery, but I have seen the MUA use it on another girl and I loved the effect!

Yes, price is steep and I would hate wasting even a tiny bit of this, but I do not mind splurging on worthy products and this is one of the products which have become must for me. I do not own Fix+, hence I cannot do the comparison, but when I asked the difference between the two, she told me this is more suitable for dry skin and for winter dry skin, this was more appropriate for me.

Pros of MAC Mineralize Charged Water Skin Hydrating Mist:

  • It does energize the skin.
  • It does not contain any sparkly particles as many products do.
  • The ingredient list is impressive.
  • Can be a versatile product. Used as a toner, makeup fixer and for makeup touch-ups.
  • Packaging is sturdy, does not leak. I would have hated to see it leaking.
  • Very less amount required each time.
  • Does not irritate my skin.
  • Makes skin look supple and dewy.

Cons of MAC Mineralize Charged Water Skin Hydrating Mist:

  • Cost!
  • I am not sure it will be great for oily-skinned beauties.

Final Recommendation:

If not for the cost, I would have told you to grab this beauty as soon as possible. But this is not very cheap; hence I would suggest you to try this and Fix+ both at the store and buy whatever suits you best. For my normal skin, it does wonders but for oily skin it may not be a great option. I hope you found the review useful :)
