Probably one of the most talked-about drugstore foundation: Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless finally ended up in my makeup bag. Surprisingly waves of positive reviews and all the beauty bloggers didn’t lose the chance to make a blog post or a youtube video. Curious by nature, but also because was a highly praised foundation, specifically designed for skin with oily tendency like mine, I rushed online to (future to see for myself what’s the fuss about this foundation and of course to share my review with you.

The new Fit Me Foundation Matte & Poreless addresses for those who want to wear foundation, but also provide a more natural finish. It’s recommended, from normal to oily skin, containing microparticles of a powder a formula which absorbs excess sebum and reduces the instant unaesthetic glow of the face. The fine powder particles also serve as a blur effect for those annoying visible pores and imperfections.

Because I ordered it online, I did not know exactly what shade is suitable for my skin colour, usually Ivory is a good match but this time it seemed a tiny bit too dark for my skin so I bought their lightest shade 110 Porcelain which of course was a mistake because, in the end, it turned out to be too “Casper the friendly ghost”. On the website you’ll find five shades available. I did a lot of bit of researching and apparently, on there are a lot more shades for you to choose so for this it gets a thumbs up.

I have to confess that I have mixed feelings about this foundation. I really loved it the first time I applied it has great coverage, minimizes the pores very well and can blend pretty easily either using a Real Techniques brush or a damp makeup sponge. Consistency is good, not too liquid neither too thick, I felt that dries as quickly as it does other foundation that I often use, namely Catrice All Matt Plus Foundation. Since having a matte finish, I don’t think is buildable, I wouldn’t recommend adding too much product, because or else you would end up with that cakey effect.

As far as resistance, I can say that I’ve tested the foundation without a makeup base and with, without powder on top and also with.

Case 1 (without a makeup base and powder): as you would expect it only lasted for a couple of hours until the shine started to appear since I didn’t do too much effort that day I wouldn’t say it looked very unesthetic but neither too flattering so use it together with a makeup base(at the moment I’m using the one from Delia)

Case 2 (with a makeup base and no powder): I say it did a good job, I don’t remember so well but if I’m correct I would say it lasted like 5 or 6 hours before the oils come through(with the mention that I had some chores around the house and also went shopping in a not so pleasant temperature). I was satisfied that it faded away pretty gracefully.

Case 3 (with a makeup base and powder): here is where I didn’t like it so much because having a matte finish and also on top of that adding powder I got the feeling of unnatural, kind like I was wearing a mask(with the mention of course that I didn’t use too much powder) so I didn’t enjoy it and it’s not like it lasted much longer than in case 2.

Also, a minus from my behalf for Fit Me Matte & Poreless is that it clings to your dry patches so therefore, it’s recommended to properly moisturize the skin before applying this foundation.

My overall opinion is that I don’t put it above Catrice All Matt Plus Foundation (so sorry Maybelline), so far I still think that the one from Catrice is almost perfect for my super oily skin.

The range of shades are super ok and if you have light skin like myself I absolutely think you’re gone be satisfied, lasts a decent amount of hours so on a school or workday will be perfect and of course the disappointing parts are that is not buildable, it won’t look natural I assure you and too much of a matte effect for my preference.

If you have a comment or a question I will be happy to respond. Have a wonderful, wonderful day!
