My take on Maybelline Fit Me Foundation:

Packaging: I still have no clue on why Maybelline compromised on their packaging. I mean it doesn’t have a pump…what were they even thinking?

So, basically it’s a cuboidal glass bottle with a screw cap and you need to unscrew the cap and pour the bottle, to get your product on your hand, sponge, brush or whatever tool you use. It gets messy using it by pouring out through the bottle since the formula is quiet runny and you cannot really control how much product you are taking out. So, the packaging does no good, which ends up causing a lot of spillage and wastage.

Shade: I’m in shade 230 Natural Buff which has yellow undertones and will suit fair to medium skin tones. They come in a variety of shades so it is easier to find a suitable match for every tone.

Texture: It is quiet runny and liquidy in texture which is extremely easy to blend. I just love every bit of blending process when it comes to this foundation. Its so easy to blend, that even beginners can end up giving it a flawless finish. Look at the image below to see how liquidy the texture is and following images show it’s spread ability and blend ability, it is super smooth.

Fragrance: Maybelline Fit Me Foundation  does have a weird chemical smell but it doesn’t bother me at all and goes away in seconds of application.

Coverage: Its neither low nor high. It is a medium coverage foundation that just gives you an apt coverage for everyday wear. It’s quiet build-able without looking cakey. The only problem with this foundation is that it tends to oxidise a bit if you layer up too much. It starts looking darker than it’s original tone.

Staying power: It has a decent staying power of around 5 to 6 hours, if you have layered it up twice. It fades away sooner if it’s just a single layer on your face. Also, the staying power improved with a primer and makeup fixer so, if you are planning to attend a small event, then may be you can go ahead with this foundation along with primer and fixing spray. I personally never use primer and fixing spray on an everyday basis.

Finish: It says it’s a Matte and Poreless foundation, but it gives an almost dewy finish which can be set into matte look using any compact. If you don’t plan to set it, it will still give you a healthy glow without moving or budging; it doesn’t even feel tacky to touch. It does blur out the facial pores but not to a very large extent. But for a drugstore brand, I feel it is a big deal that this blurs out my pores decently.

Pros:

  • Budget friendly.
  • Easily blendable.
  • Dewy finish.
  • Decent Staying power.
  • Flawless finish.

Cons:

  • Packaging!
  • Slight fragrance
  • It does tend to settle into fine lines, so not a very good option for wrinkly faces.

Rating: 4.5/5

Will I repurchase or recommend? No exaggeration here whatsoever, I literally stock up on this whenever sale starts. I love this foundation to bits to an extent that I am ready to overlook the biggest flaw of packaging of this foundation.

Looking for other foundations?

Until Next Time,

Stay Beautiful♥

  1. Maybelline FIT me was in my wishlist for a long time but then the final decision was made against L’Oreal Infallible 24H foundation… I am really disappointed with it’s packaging but overall I think its a great one…. Thanks for the lovely review…

  2. I have heard so many good things about this foundation but have never tired it. May be because I am not much of a foundation person but I do use sometimes. On a regular basis I use a CC cream or a BB cream. Light to medium coverage is good for me. But I need to try this one for sure. 🙂
