Maybelline Fit Me Matte Poreless Foundation Review

By Rutuja Bhagwat - November 17, 2018


After my L'Oreal Paris True Match foundation––which was a decent, full coverage one––I was making up without any full coverage. I just had a Maybelline BB cream, which I regret buying, an L.A.Girl pro concealer tube, which is running out, and a Bharat & Dorris foundation, which doesn't provide a full coverage. I was therefore on a hunt for a foundation with decent coverage and the one that is easy to apply, has a runny consistency, and doesn't crease. Honestly, I had never thought the Fit Me to be a smooth, liquidy foundation; I always assumed it to be rough and as bad as the L'Oreal one I owned before. But then, one day, out of nowhere, I asked my friend and she suggested me the Fit Me. (Psst! She has never tried it out but had heard some great reviews about it.)

I started my research and convinced, was about to buy it online. However, I thought I should try the shades and get a demo of its consistency. So last evening, I visited a beauty store and checked the product myself. Maybelline has also launched a Superstay foundation but I was not rushing to buy it. I finalised on the Fit Me foundation in the shade 130 Buff Beige. I have tried it twice so far, with and without a primer. 


PACKAGING & APPLICATION


The packaging is decent. In fact, my assumptions about it being a coarse foundation were due to its packaging. The product comes in a glass bottle with a plastic cap. It does not have a pump dispenser so you need to literally pour the foundation in order to use it. 


The application is flawless. The foundation doesn't glide but absorbs in your skin thus giving a smooth, soft, and flawless looking face. To apply, simply pour the foundation on the back of your palm and spread it all over your face and neck using a damp sponge. For best results, dab the sponge instead of stroking. 

CONSISTENCY & COVERAGE

The consistency is liquidy. It blends amazingly well and gives a medium coverage. I tried it on my acne spot and the spot just faded, however, it wasn't invisible. The under the eye worked pretty well, if you have lighter dark circles, however, an additional layer of concealer is required. 

The foundation looks like your own skin from afar. Only on taking a closer look can one notice the foundation. 


LASTING POWER


I tried it on without a primer and it lasted pretty well from 1:30 pm to 7:30 pm. So you can say, the lasting is pretty good. Another thing, it did not crease near my smile lines, which is brilliant!


PROS

- Watery consistency
- Looks natural on the skin
- Affordable
- Blends easily
- Matte finish
- Good for normal to oily skin


CONS


- No pump dispenser
- Medium coverage
- Glass body, risky while travelling


CONCLUSION

The Fit Me foundation fares well for a beginner or someone with a budget who is looking for a medium coverage. It can be used with or without a concealer and can be used as a base makeup for special occasions like festivals and parties. Since the foundation is matte, use some moisturiser beforehand for greater results. 

In the above collage, I tried the foundation on a layer of moisturiser and sunscreen. I did not use a primer before or a compact/loose powder after the application. So whatever result you see is purely of the foundation. 

I honestly wanted something that hides my acne spots better than what this one does. Also, I had heard some great reviews about it, however, it's not that up to the mark. But for a full coverage, when there are no acne spots, it's a good foundation. So if you're looking for something to brighten your skin and give an even tone throughout your face, this one's a wonderful choice.
