Review - Maybelline Fit Me Foundation


I was love trying out new foundations as I am yet to find my perfect foundation. When I saw the advert for the Maybelline Fit Me range I instantly wanted to try it out, so was happy when they were offering a limited number of free samples! I quickly went online and registered for my free sample of the foundation.

The Maybelline website gave a really good shade matcher to ensure they you were ordering the correct shade. I found it really easy to use and was really happy when it arrived and I found the shade matched my skin tone really well. The product does come is a good range of different shades to match different skin tones, so it should be easy to find one perfect for your skin.

The sample size was 10ml which I thought was a really generous size. It gave me and chance to try it out on a few different occasions and apply it in different ways. This was really good as I find you need to try foundations a few times to see how you really feel about them.

When first trying the foundation I found the consistency to be very runny, which is something I don't really like as I tend to go for thicker foundations. The first time I applied it I used my fingers which I found worked well. It applied evenly and smoothly but didn't give me a fuller coverage like I prefer due to the type of skin I have. I would say this foundation gives a light - medium coverage and I found it needed touching up throughout the day as it doesn't last. It did however feel light on the skin and give a dewy finish.

The other time I applied it I tried it with a buffing brush. I found that it applied slightly thicker, with more coverage. It was however harder to apply and the runny consistency cause it to have a streaky look and took a lot of buffing in. I found that if you build it up it does give a cakey look to it and feels slightly heavy on your face. I have quite dry skin and around my worse areas (nose and cheek bones) I did find that it clung slightly to these areas.

In all honesty I probably wouldn't buy this foundation again mainly because it doesn't give the fuller coverage I prefer and isn't easily buildable. I would recommend it to people who prefer a light coverage. It does apply easily with fingers and gives a nice dewy finish once applied.

The full sized product (30ml) retails at £7.99 which I think is a good price for the size you get. There is also a pressed powder and concealer within the range.

Have you tried this foundation? What were your thoughts?
