My Experience with Maybelline Fit Me Foundation:

I think I share a love-hate relationship with this foundation.  I have had it with me for almost ten months now and I have used it on several occasions across many seasons, so I think I will be able to make up my mind about how I feel about it now.

For one, I love the chic glass bottle that it comes in. I believe that the UK version of this foundation comes with a pump (I’m not entirely sure, but I think it does). I have the US version of the bottle and it comes with a regular screw cap, which of course makes it harder to use. But I think the packaging looks sleek and classy.

I have the shade 315 (which I chose from the 18 shades available—the shade range is very impressive).  I would say that 315 is a close match to my skin, but is a little on the darker side (if you’re MAC NC 41-42, this will match you). The shades are divided into three categories for light, medium and tan skin, making it easier for you to select your shade. Additionally, the Fit Me range has corresponding concealers and face powders for the available foundation shades.

I was drawn to this foundation because of two reasons. The first being its wide shade range and the second being its gel-like, oil-free light and breathable formula. I was at that time looking for something that looked natural, dewy, provided medium coverage and didn’t clog my pores. This foundation totally seemed to fit the bill. I also loved the price and so I picked it up.

The formula is certainly lightweight and gel-like. It provides a natural, dewy finish to the skin. I would have liked it even more if the shade matched my skin better. However, it’s not too off the mark either, so I can make it work by mixing and blending. However, I don’t think I would recommend this if you have oily skin. Because then it might end up looking oily on your face (as the hours go by) rather than dewy. I think that this would suit dry, normal and combination skin the most.

On my dry to combination skin, I sometimes find that it begins to look sort of oily. That’s why I like to blot this foundation soon after applying it and definitely like to set it with powder.

The SPF content can lend this foundation a very slight and subtle whitish cast (not noticeable as such) that may show up in flash photography. I would recommend this more for daytime wear if you are going to be out all day and need something lightweight on your skin.

As far as coverage is concerned, I think that this is a light to medium coverage foundation that can be built up, but I would much rather wear this as a light base and use concealer over the imperfections that need coverage.

Although you can apply this and blend it in with your fingers, I prefer to go for a more even and flawless finish with my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush.

Finally, I don’t like that this foundation contains parabens. It makes me wear this one less often than I would otherwise.

Pros of Maybelline Fit Me Foundation:

  • Lightweight, gel-like formula that is oil-free and wax-free.
  • Provides natural looking light to medium coverage, but can be built up for more coverage.
  • Contains an SPF of 18.
  • Can be applied and blended in with fingers as well as with brush.
  • Wide range of shades available.
  • Packaging is sleek and classy.
  • Retails at a good price:

Cons of Maybelline Fit Me Foundation:

  • Contains parabens.
  • Some variants of the bottle don’t have a pump dispenser.
  • SPF content can result in slight whitish cast when using flash photography.
  • Can end up looking too dewy and somewhat oily on oily skin and if not set with powder.

My Verdict on Maybelline Fit Me Foundation:

If you are on a budget and need a dependable, natural-looking, easy-to-wear foundation, then this one is a really good bet. You’re very likely to find a good shade match.

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation Swatches

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation

Several weeks ago the Target website offered samples of the entire range of shades from Maybelline’s new Fit Me foundation line. I decided to take advantage of the deal and this morning I received the samples in the mail. The samples also included a $1 Maybelline coupon which I’ll save for another time 🙂

There’s only a tiny amount of product in each of the little shade samples, basically just enough to do a swatch each. I’m not complaining, but it’s definitely not enough to really test out the product and give an informed opinion. So, unfortunately, I won’t be able to review the product.

All I can do is show you swatches and tell you that the Fit Me foundation has an old-school beauty powder scent, kind of like the iconic scent of Coty loose face powder but to a lesser degree. Waaaaay less, actually. The scent of Coty powder is intense! The Fit Me foundation is scented but it’s not overpowering in my opinion.

For reference, I’m typically between an NC15 and an NC20 in the MAC shade range. I’m closer to NC15 in the winter, and closer to NC20 in the summer.

Sorry about the goosebumps 😛

I tried a little bit on my face and while 115 seems light/dark enough for me, it’s too pink. 110 is more yellow but a little too light and 120 is too dark. I could buy 110 and 115 (or 120) to mix together but I’d rather buy one foundation that matches me than buy two shades from Maybelline Fit Me to mix together to match me. Also, based on past experience, Maybelline foundations tend to oxidize and go pink/orange on me over time.

Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless foundation

Lately I have found myself on a major foundation kick. I’ve been trying new releases left and right. Moreover, where I normally opt for a light coverage foundation, I have also been dabbling with full coverage ones. Another type of foundation I’ve been trying out is the matte foundation. So many people swear by those and I just wanted to see what the fuss was all about. When I saw that Maybelline finally launched their Fit Me Matte & Poreless foundation in The Netherlands, I decided to try it and see what I think.

Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless foundation 110 Porcelain

I tried the original Fit Me foundation years ago, but didn’t like it. The reason being that it caused an allergic reaction and hence it didn’t work out too well for me. My skin has improved greatly this past year though and I would be curious to try it again to see if it would still have the same effect. But I thought I’d try something new first. At €9.99 the Maybelline Matte & Poreless foundation is a very affordable drugstore foundation and comes in €5 cheaper than the original Fit Me.

The Packaging

What I like about this product is that it comes in a squeezy tube. So much easier than a glass bottle with a pump! It is lighter and less fragile, which means it is easier to travel with. It is also not too bulky which means it is easy to store. The fact that you squeeze out the product, also makes for a hygienic application that is easy to dose. All in all, we’re off to a good start.

Additionally, the tube I comes sealed as well. So it is easy to check in stores whether someone has already opened it. In any case it is a fail safe way of ensuring you’re truly buying a fresh tube. A tube contains 30 ml of product which is standard for a foundation.

The Product

This product is formulated for normal to oily skin. I have dry/ dehydrated, combination skin so I was a bit hesitant at first. It should blur imperfections, minimize pores and match flawlessly with your skin. The ingredients on this product are a long lists of chemicals, but I never truly figured out what my skin reacted to, so each foundation purchase always feels like a gamble.

The texture of this is surprisingly liquid for a matte foundation aimed at normal to oily skin. I had expected this to be drier and less emollient. When you squeeze out one drop, you will also find that it goes a long way. Coverage is good, I’d say medium and buildable to more if you feel you need more. One thing I noticed immediately is how easy it was to blend this foundation. Despite the claims that this is a matte foundation, it doesn’t look cakey and keeps a certain amount of luminosity.

The Swatch

Before – Half/ Half – Full Face

I tested this out on a good skin day. I don’t get too many blemishes and don’t suffer from too much texture unless you look at my skin up close. The only reason why I like to cover things up is the amount of redness in my face. In short, I look for a foundation that evens out my skin tone and if it can hide that red splodge above my eyebrow all the better.

In applying this foundation to the face I was indeed pleasantly surprised. You can barely see a difference between the two halves of my face because it blended in so smoothly and just looked like skin. It does a good job of covering up most of the redness, but I did apply concealer to cover any discoloration and redness that was still visible.

Wear time on this was great. It lasted well all day and definitely survives a work day. It didn’t bunch up or crease on itself which I think is mostly due to the fact that it is such a lightweight formula. You only need a little bit to cover your entire face and while it doesn’t cover everything, I loved how natural this foundation looked. The shade match was also spot on for me and they even do one shade that is lighter.

The Conclusion

My verdict? The Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless foundation is one of the best drugstore foundations I’ve tried. This has definitely beat the Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation from its top spot. For years that has been my favorite drugstore foundation, but this Maybelline one has one thing that the Bourjois doesn’t have: the perfect shade. Moreover, it has a lovely texture, easy application and natural look. In short, it has everything I am looking for in a great everyday foundation.

This foundation is the ONLY one I've tried that is a near perfect match for my skintone (as in light enough, and not too pink), so for that reason alone it's a part of my everyday makeup. The coverage is too sheer for my taste, and while it is buildable to some degree, I would prefer a bit better coverage. It has a nice consistency, easy to work with. It's accessible and affordable. I use it on the lower part of my face, towards the neck. If you don't want full coverage, and you pair it with a nice concealer, it's a gorgeous foundation. The finish is natural on my skin, not too dry not too dewy. I usually only set it only in a few places, on my skin looks the best without powder, maybe because my skin is really dry. It is really pale, while still being a natural skintone.
