This is part 1 of a new blog series about the foundations I've been testing out,
I hope you enjoy it!
I'm sure you've fully grasped by now the ever-growing demand for "dewy" foundations; it was only a matter of time until the drugstore makeup brands joined the bandwagon. FIT ME is Maybelline's newest foundation that caters for that natural, but flawless look. And I love it to bits.
Packaging aside (a pleasant surprise by Maybelline!), there's so much to love about this foundation. It all comes down to its sophisticated formula:
An average foundation usually contains oils, waxes, fillers and powder pigment particles. Fit Me is free from all such ingredients; instead, they're replaced with a transluscent base and lightweight pigments that let the skin breathe, while providing a natural coverage. The result is a glowing, flawless face that looks like skin- and most importantly, there's zero cakiness guaranteed.
Now, all this babble means nothing if the product doesn't deliver what it claims, right? Well, I'm here to tell you that I can feel a massive difference on my face when I wear this foundation.
The thing is, I'm still going through a tough skin phase.
Despite it being oily, my face suffers from dry patches due to not exfoliating properly.
So you can imagine what it looks like when I'm wearing foundation. You guessed it: cakey.
However, whenever I wear this one, my skin looks more like... skin, if it makes sense!
I have no problems with cakiness or that tell-tale line of foundation under the jawline.
Considering that the "drugstore" foundations can reach up to €20 nowadays, Fit Me seems like a good deal at €14,95. Along with the foundation, there's also the Maybelline Fit Me concealer (€7,95) and powder (€12,65).
All in all, it's a lovely foundation for those of you that prefer the natural, glowy finish. Although it's not oily, it may need some powder on top if you've applied a rich moisturiser underneath. Extra little bonus: it contains SPF18, perfect for everyday ;)
What's your experience with Maybelline foundations?
Do you prefer the natural, slightly dewy look or you're a fan of the matte finish?
