I’ve been using both Model In a Bottle and MAC Fix + sprays for a long time and now I’m able to tell the difference between the two of them. MAC Fix + Spray was my go to spray and I’ve been using it for years and even though I’ve tried some other face sprays this one was still my favorite.
A few months ago I had the possibility to test the new Model In a Bottle Sensitive Skin Formula (review + photos) thanks to Beauty Stop Online which is an online beauty shop offering the best professional beauty products in the industry at some of the lowest prices available. You can buy products usually with $5 – 10 less than other shops. In this case the sensitive formula costs $14.99 while on the official website is $21.00.

Model In a Bottle Sensitive Skin Formula vs MAC Fix + Spray
MAC Fix + Spray ($20.00/ €19.50 for 100 ml/ 3.4 fl oz) has been my make up setting spray for years. My skin drinks it instantly and helps me set my makeup and get ride of that powdery look because it absorbs excess of powder so well. It feels light, it instantly freshens my skin and gives me a smooth finish. I also like to use it on my hair for conditioning so it can be used in many ways. It’s not really such a great makeup setting spray as the Model in a Bottle, because MAC Fix + helps the face powder to melt into the skin and get rid of that cakey makeup look especially if you use to much products. Having a sensitive and combination skin type I notice that after 2-3 hours it makes my face look oily so I always have to carry with me some oil absorbing makeup tissues. It should work great on dry or normal skin types.
Model In a Bottle Sensitive Formula ($14.99 for 60 ml/ 2 fl oz) is more suitable for my skin type as it really makes my makeup last a long time. It’s really a great makeup setting spray, it makes my makeup almost waterproof and I do really recommend to brides, dancers or women that want to have a long-lasting makeup for the entire day.
It doesn’t clog my pores and removes oil excess and keeps oil from ruining my makeup as I have a combination skin type. After I spritz on my face 3-4 times and wait for about 30 seconds I feel like I have nothing on, I don’t feel a heavy makeup when I decide to wear more products and it gives a nice matte finish and holds and seals eyeshadow and foundation in place trough out the day. I didn’t feel the need to retouch my makeup as I didn’t have any oil excess like I sometimes have after the MAC Fix + after a few hours.
It’s a great product to be used if you are living in hot or humid area and works great on combination to oily skin types.
