argghh, this is dumb, seriously dumb, i think they are just using any exscuse they can to bring a new collection of somesort out.
thanks for the size thing! i probably will get the little fix plus just because i wanna try it out but def the oil control lotion since it works out better
YES!! Wasn’t the breakdown of the ounces so helpful! Although I’l admit I already assumed it would perhaps be more cost effective to by the full size products…just a hunch!
At the mac warehouse sale in markham, ontario, the mini cleanse off oils and fix+’s have been found for $3! I’m glad MAC is starting to sell them in stores, they are quite handy.
Tip: I poured cleanse off oil into my empty MINI fix+ container and now i can carry it in my overnight bag without spillage!
bleh, i’d never buy travel-size for that. D; That’s way too much when you’re paying for less product!
(it reminds me of shorts…I don’t get why my shorts cost almost the same as my jeans.)
but MAC knows someone will buy it because some people must absolutely have the brand name on their stuff.
or bathing suits. why the hell do you pay $30 for ONE HALF of a bikini? why? -___- lol
got really excited for a minute since we travel international all the time, but this is simply not worth it. And I agree, would love the brush cleaner. Thanks for another great and honest review
they are really cute..but why pay more for less product???
anyway the fix+ mini would be really useful for me when I have dance shows! Indeed I never bring my fix + because it’s too big -____- uffffffff
I love MAC and RARELY do I complain, if not at all but the price for these are ridicilous. I’ll stick to buying the full size. More bang for my buck.
Oh My Badd….. Thanks Again Leesha for the review :)!
This is silly, you cam buy little travel bottles at target for a dollar or so. If there was a mac skin product i totally loved, I’d just fill up another travel bottle.
Sephora just came out with a new Favorites set “In the Glow” which contained some products I was really anxious to try. The sizes are pretty generous for one of their kits, and is only $35.00. Everything in the kit is awesome for summer! The Boscia Black Mask is epic, btw.
MAC seems to think they’re so amazing that they can get away with anything. Wrong.
i like mini sizes of everything because (esp. with mac) it seems like im ALWAYS buying stuff from a new collection. if i have regular-sized products, then i just feel silly for buying more and more when i havent finished the old one!
Leesha, I absolutely agree with you. Bikinis in A&F for example cost more together than a pair of jeans!! Ridiculous.
But yes, paying double the price for less than half the amount is just a little bit ridiculous.
I do think you got it spot on with the travel sized brush cleanser though…
I am probably going to get the MAC travel sized bottles for the sake of the cute little bottles though. Then once I’m out of the product, just fill it back up from the bigger containers of the products. The drugstore stuff I always have issues with coz I hate the way they look so plain and that they don’t have labels etc. This is my biggest downfall, I hate it if my things look rubbish lol :)
I like the idea of travel size MAC items, but as you mentioned the prices are not so great. It does not make sense to pay more for a smaller item when I can purchase a full sized item and find my own CHEAPER means to store it into a smaller package. Great review!
Are they refillable?
Ehh I was having second thoughts of buying the smaller sized after I saw the prices..But I think I may get the Fix+ and Cleansing Oil just to try and have a smaller cuter container for when I do travel. I actually like MAC’s pump bottles :D
Just wondering..whats the different between the Cleanse Off Oil and Cleanse Off Oil Tranquil?
-__- well that stinks! Thanks for the breakdown of price/oz. Very helpful! You don’t think about that when your at the counter! Lol
Sounded like a great idea and I was excited until I scrolled down to the prices. I would much rather buy travel sized bottles at the drugstore and just fill them from my full sized bottles. Sorry MAC, try again!
Can you do a review on Mark Ibiza Sol Marbleized eyeshadow Sticks?? There like marbalized jumbo eyeliner and I think the concept is cool. You can get them on:
I think I’ll pick up a mini Fix+ since I love the product & think it would be handy to toss in my purse/travel bag. I agree that these are overpriced, but most things are these days. It just depends how much you personally are willing to drop.
I love minis too!
wow! they are so cute! but the price is stupid! mac fix+ (regular size) is allowed to be carried on an airplane! but the little one is so cute!!! I’m probably gonna buy it for my purse x: and maybe a strobe cream cos i wanna try that, and its cheaper! minis are so cute, if i used any of the other things, i would prob buy them cos im a sucker for minis /:
I might try out the strobe cream in a mini size, but even still, if I like a product enough to travel with it, I’m obviously going to be using it a ton.
