Maybelline’s Fit Me line has been around for quite some time. I was an avid user of the Fit Me Bronzer and Blush for years. Recently, I’ve seen tons of Youtubers and Beauty Influencers recommending the Fit Me Foundations, Concealers and Powders for their favorite drug store products so I figured I would give it try! I was able to grab the “Matte & Poreless” foundation and powder in my color but the Concealer was all sold out in my shade.
This “Matte & Poreless” foundation is packaged really beautiful for an inexpensive brand! This comes in a glass bottle with a black cap. The lettering is a sleek black and teal; overall very nice presentation. I do wish this had a pump on it, rather than just an opening to pour the product out, but that’s just a personal preference.
This blends into the skin nicely and wears well throughout the day. I would recommend a beauty sponge instead of a brush- just because the formula is thick, I’ve seen better results using a sponge.
The formula is matte, however that’s the final product after I powder. I never wear foundation alone . My skin does not get oily wearing this which is great! If you have dry skin, or dry patches, this might not be the best product for you. I did notice the product grabbing on to areas of dry skin on my cheeks when I wore it without a moisturizing primer (but that’s because my skin is combo and this winter has been rough!) I wouldn’t say the poreless claim is true. If you have large pores, I would recommend a pore minimizing primer with this- Benefit’s Porefessional or NYX Pore Filler are great- so that you can get a smoother overall appearance.
This foundation is very build-able, which I love! I can do a thin layer for a carefree makeup day, or layer it up for more glam days (I recommend letting it dry before a second coat)! The coverage is really nice when it comes to acne, I like how opaque this is over red areas, dark circles and imperfections. I will say that this took my a few tries to really love. The first few times I went too heavy with the products and felt very cakey. Just be mindful of your application- thin layers, with a few minutes in between to dry will give you the best results!
The loose powder is packaged well, the cap unscrews easily and the powder is secure under a plastic sifter. I love that it comes out slow enough so you don’t end up with a huge dust cloud and you can kind of control the amount of product you want to dispense, since the sifter is sized appropriately. The unit is plastic, but very durable. Keeping with the theme, it also has sleek black cap.
The texture on this powder is lovely! It is soft and finely milled so it applies flawlessly to the skin. This does seem to give a little extra coverage, since its a tinted powder, rather than a translucent powder. I would compare the texture to Cody Air Spun because it has that soft, velvet touch. This powder is not scented at all.
If you have pale skin- the 05 Fair shade is wonderful for baking the undereyes!! I have fair skin and most powders are too dark to highlight the under eye area. This however works really well! I use a sponge to set my bake under the eyes and then brush it off with a large fluffy brush. I then use that same large brush to buff the powder into he remainder of my face. I would highly recommend using this sparingly- too much powder can give you cake face!
I really love both of these items! I find myself reaching for the powder a lot, it’s just the perfect shade for my fair skin. The foundation is great to have too, I tend to grab for it when I am having breakouts or if the bags under my eyes are really dark- the coverage is real!
These products are $5.99 each, so you really can’t go wrong grabbing both for $12! If you haven’t tried these, its worth giving it a go. Just be mindful of your skin type and the amount of product you are using- like I mentioned above it took me a few times to realize I was applying too much at first, this stuff is pigmented!
Now that I’ve tried this Matte & Poreless, I really want to try the Dewy & Smooth! Let me know in the comments if you would like to read a review on that one too!
