I’ve had an itchy trigger finger with my new bottle of MAC Fix+ Rose ($17). The stuff’s so great I haven’t been able to keep my hands off it!
MAC took spring and rose waters and infused them with minerals, and the resulting face spray feels about as refreshing on my skin as anything I could imagine.
Too bad it’s limited edition…
It was released with the A Rose Romance collection, so it won’t be around forever.
I think MAC’s original Fix+ Spray ($17) pales in comparison. Fix+ Rose just feels more hydrating to me and doesn’t leave the same heavy film I seem to get with Fix+ Spray.
As for the fragrance?
It’s light and refreshing — a distinctly rose scent that’s not too intense.
I’ve been spraying it on my face repeatedly throughout the day… Before it has even had time to dry, I’m whipping it out again, spraying and spraying, over and over again. I love this stuff!
In the morning, I use it after washing my face and then again after applying my makeup. It adds a dewy finish to foundation and powder.
Throughout the day, I’ll spritz it whenever my skin feels dry, or when I need a refreshing boost.
OOH! You gotta try this: I stuck it in the fridge when it was hella hot one day last week. Talk about refreshing. That took it to the next level.
I’m SO BUMMED it’s limited edition… I may stockpile a couple bottles. MAC, if you’re listening, please add Fix+ Rose to the permanent line. Do it for Tabs.
MAC Fix+ Rose

She’s all that
Have you ever seen She’s All That. It’s a cheesy late ’90s teen flick starring Freddie Prinze, Jr. and Rachel Leigh Cook (whatever happened to her?). It’s on cable every so often, and it was on again last night.
Half of the up-and-coming young stars of the time are in it. Everyone from Paul Walker to Gabrielle Union to Anna Paquin and Usher. It even has one of the Culkins (I can’t remember which one).
I didn’t realize until last night that Lil’ Kim even has a bit part. She plays a high school student. I’d never recognized her in the movie before because she’s actually wearing regular clothes, LOL!
So how’s your Tuesday coming along? What has been the highlight of your day?
