I am probably the last blogger in the world to review the Maybelline Fit Me foundations.
The thing is, I hate pour out foundations (I’m looking at you, Estee Lauder Double Wear). So while I was confident I could find my shade in the US range, I just couldn’t deal with the lack of pump. I wanted the UK packaging which is a squeeze tube but I could never seem to find any dark shades.
Luckily, a few weeks ago, the stars aligned and I was able to purchase quite a few of the darker shades in the UK packagaing, so here I am with a review. Because the UK shades are different from the American shades (why do brands do that btw? So annoying!) I will also include swatches of these and my other foundations.
MAYBELLINE FIT ME MATTE & PORELESS FOUNDATION REVIEW
Here’s what it looks like on my face. I wear the shade 350 Caramel
Fit Me Matte & Poreless has been designed for normal to oily skin. Its blurring micro powders refines pores while shine is being absorbed for a natural matte finish.
Fit Me Matte & Poreless foundation fits both skin and texture for natural finish and poreless looking skin.
MAYBELLINE FIT ME MATTE & PORELESS SWATCHES
Here they are compared to some of my other foundations.
This gave me a natural matte finish like it claimed to, and it didn’t emphasize my pores, but it didn’t exactly make my skin look “poreless” either. It didn’t settle into my smile lines or break me out.
The undertones of these foundations run more neutral/red. I have golden yellow undertones so this was a bit of a problem, it can look a bit ashy, but once I applied my Laura Mercier powder it all came together.
I needed to blot during the day, but that’s pretty normal for my oily skin in this climate.
I think it’s a good everyday foundation for oily combination skin. I can see myself wearing it to the movies, hangouts, shorts errands or just on a casual day to day basis.
When paired with a good primer and the Laura Mercier powder, it lasts for pretty much the whole day.
I like this, and while it’s not a holygrail product for me, I think it is good for the price.
I really hope they expand the shade range in the UK. I hate when brands have 5467 shades in their US range of a product and then have only a limited selection in the UK/European market.
I will need Lancome and Maybelline to explain this to me because I don’t understand it. Anyway, that’s it for this review.
Have you tried this foundation? What do you think? Does the Maybelline Fit Me fit you? 🙄 (sorry I couldn’t resist saying that)
