I am not a girl who uses foundation on daily basis. Foundations keep lying in my makeup stash unused or half used. On daily basis, I apply only general day and night cremes and BB or CC creams. On special occasions only I apply foundations that too in a very little amount. So, foundations are hard for me to finish by. But seeing a new foundation Maybelline Fit me Matte + Poreless Foundation to be launched in the Indian market and whole of the online marketing and all your favourite blogger are raving about it. Then who can resist the charm of buying it??? I cannot for sure.
So, when Maybelline came up with their new fit me range, the whole online fashion circle got crazy about it. They have launched foundations, compacts and many other things under this range. I was tempted and my old stash of foundations was coming to a close now. So, I thought of why not try with this new baby – Maybelline Fit me Matte + Poreless Foundation and here follows the review of the same.

Directions to use Maybelline Foundation
Wash your face with a gentle face wash and let it air dry. Now, begin by applying a primer or light moisturizer to your face. Then take a pea-sized amount of Maybelline foundation and apply it through a makeup sponge or beauty blender. You can also apply the Maybelline foundation directly on your face and blend it using your fingers.
My Take on the Maybelline Fit me Foundation
Packaging / Availability of Maybelline Fit me Foundation Review
The foundation comes in a pretty glass packaging that has the product name and other minimal details written over it. The bottle is transparent and made of thick glass. It will easily break down once it is dropped so make sure that you handle it with care. The bottle does not come with any dispenser or pump packaging.
So, you need to tilt the product to get the foundation out and you cannot control the amount of foundation which is required or which comes out. Also, the foundation is a thick liquid it is difficult that it to go into the jar again. That leads to product wastage which is a huge minus for me.
Maybelline Foundation Fit me Shades
The foundation shade which I chose is sand beige. I am W42 in Mac and in this way I find this shade is fine for me. It is exactly my skin colour a bit lighter. So, when I spread it on my face it looks like my skin only but more polished and clean and refined and all those goody things.
Consistency of Maybelline Foundation Fit Me
The foundation is a bit thicker and so don’t even think of applying it to your face directly. Dilute the foundation with a bit of Gulab Jal and then mix it and spread it on your face. Also, if you apply the foundation directly then it can be a bit drying on your face. And it can also leave skin freckles and all.
So, apply a moisturizing primer underneath. And if you are the one with oily skin then no need for a primer for the miniaturization part just go with any normal primer.
Finish Maybelline Fit me Matte and Poreless Foundation
The foundation has a matte finish. It sets on completely matte. So, I think people like me who like dewy skin finish will not like it that much. But you can always make it work around with some makeup fixing spray which will give you a dewy finish. The foundation stays on for pretty long.
Under AC environments it stays on for easily 10 hours. In humid conditions, it can survive for 6-8 hours. It controls the sweat and oil on your face. But it is not waterproof so after washing doesn’t expect to be on your face. The coverage of this foundation is lighter to full. You can build up the coverage as per your choice.
Final Recommendation On Maybelline Fit me Matte and Poreless Foundation
for me, this is a good foundation for everyday wear. It can easily replace your BB or CC creams if you are looking for fuller coverage in terms of your problematic skin. I give this foundation a thumb up and it is in my “must try” list.
Rating on Maybelline Matte and Poreless Foundation: 4/5
