I am back with yet another MUA review for you all and this time its their Pro-Base Fixing Mist. I always wanted to try a fixing spray to fix my makeup so that it lasts longer and doesn’t slide off my face. MAC’s Fix+ has always been in my wish list but to shell out 30$ for face mist…I wasn’t so sure. So while placing my MUA order I came across this fixing mist and since the price was ok I thought why not try it out.
Fixes your makeup in place all day long. Protects against heat, humidity, cold and windy conditions; whatever your day throws at you – your makeup will hold in place!
Apply makeup as normal. Shake your fixing mist and then hold at arms length and spray in a horizontal swishing motion until you have your desired cover. Avoid direct contact with eyes Moisturizes and hydrates skin Micro-fine mist for easy application Up to 8 hours fixing time.
‘Makeup Setting Sprays are used to create a luminous finish after you have applied your makeup. Not only do they allow your skin to remain hydrated, but they work as a moderate sealer, preventing your makeup from making a mess ‘- Karla Powell, MUA’s Head of Make-up Artistry.
My experience with MUA Pro Base Fixing Mist:
I have been using this for about a month now and I do like it a lot. To start off I have combination to oily skin which is prone to breaks out so I am very careful when choosing products for my skin. MUA Pro Base Fixing Mist comes in small plastic type spray bottle and contains about 60ml of product. The plastic cap shuts tight so there are no chances of leakage and the spray opening is quite fine so you won’t get drenched in it either.
I first used the spray on my bare hands and observed that it almost dries super quick into semi matte finish! I was impressed and tried it on my face and it definitely takes away all the cakiness of the foundation and gives a healthy dewy finish but there is a catch here..if you spray way too much it definitely makes you extremely dewy which can be mistaken for oiliness! The first time I sprayed a little too much and I felt so oily and greasy! So next time I sprayed 2 to 3 times from an arm distance and it was perfect!
I don’t wear foundations everyday but when I am going out to a party or any special night out I prefer to use foundation and thats when I use this. My makeup starts to slide off after 5 to 6 hours especially in hot and humid climate and this spray works very well in keeping my makeup fresh longer. With this spray my makeup stays in place for 8+ hours..though gets a little shiny after sometime but nothing way too and nothing that small compact touch up cannot handle.
Often matte foundations can make one look cakey and made up and this is a wonderful drugstore mist which really moisturizes the skin and keeping the making looking fresh all through out the day. It has never broken me out either. A wonderful option for MAC Fix+ without burning hole in your pocket. I cannot compare it to MAC Fix+ since I don’t own it but its definitely a good product to keep your makeup stay in place.
Pros of MUA Pro Base Fixing Mist:
-> Travel-friendly packing.
-> The spray nozzle is small so it spray’s just the right amount of product.
-> Mild fragrance which does not last long, almost fragrance free.

-> Did not break me out.
