A little late for this post, since I have been using this product for a few months now.
The Maybelline Fit Me foundation comes in 2 variety: Matte and Poreless and Dewy and Smooth. One is tailored for more oily skin and one if for drier skin girls. Now I have dry skin but I still decided to try the Matte and powerless formula because Tati (one of my fav youtubers) said she likes it better even though she has dry skin 🙂
“Fit Me! Matte + Poreless from Maybelline New York goes beyond skin tone matching to fit the unique texture issues of normal to oily skin for the ultimate natural skin fit.
- contains genius blurring micro-powders that erase pores and absorb oil for a naturally matte and poreless-looking finish.
- Dermatologist and allergy tested.
- Does not clog pores.
There are around 24 shades of this foundation which makes it possible to find a shade for all skin tones.
It retains for around 8-9 CAD and you can always find deals on it like buy one get one 50% off. Just keep an eye out on different stores. In Canada you can get this from Walmart, Superstore, London Drugs, Shoppers (all drugstores carry maybelline)
The Dewy + Smooth formula has 14 shades and also contains SPF 18.
It is very bendable and easy to apply. I either use a foundation buffer brush or sometimes even my fingers and it goes on very smoothly. I always set this foundation with a translucent powder (my holy grail : Laura Mercier Translucent Setting powder) because it does oxidize on me and also use a primer for the same reason. It gives light coverage which I can build it up to medium. I usually reach for it when I don’t really feel like wearing a lot of makeup and when I don’t have a very long day ahead of me. It usually lasts 4-5 hours (sitting in an office). It doesn’t break up after, that just sort of fades away.
It gives a beautiful finish and doesn’t make my skin look dry or crappy.
I am in the shade 220 Natural Beige
Does it live up to the claim?
It does not clog my pores or make me break out which is a huge plus. But at the same time I don’t find it does anything miraculous for my pores.
- Wide range of shades
- Light weight
- Good for everyday wear
- No Pump
- Lasts 4-5 hours
I quite like this foundation for what it offers in the price. Its a great beginner foundation or if your looking for a light-medium coverage every day foundation. One of my friend who has oily skin swears by this foundation and wears it everyday, it’s her holy grail.
