Review: Maybelline Fit Me Liquid Foundation

Twitter & Instagram: tinaHL82

Maybelline Fit Me Liquid Foundation:

• No oils, no waxes, no nonsense
• Natural coverage that leaves skin the way it was meant to be…fresh, breathing, natural
• Exclusive translucent base and lightweight pigments allow skin's natural highs and lows to show through
• Non-comedogenic, dermatologist-tested

To summarise what I reviewed in the video, this foundation gives a light to light/medium coverage, feels light weight and gives a smooth slightly powdered finish.  It went on really well using a kabuki brush leaving no streaks, did not separate, move, or disappear on my combination/oily skin throughout the day either.  It also lasted a good full day, say from 7am til about 7pm, so staying power is pretty good.  However, I do use primer & powder when using this foundation, as it transfers really easily, so you need to be cautious when using this foundation.  If you are one of those that touches your face throughout the day etc, I definitely do not recommend this foundation.  Another thing to note is it did oxidise throughout the day, and though it didn't affect me much as I'm sort of between two shades anyway, those with paler skin may want to buy the next shade down.

People I do not recommend this to are those with dry skin as the powdery finish can emphasise any dry areas, & definitely not for those with really oily skin as I guess the transfer will only be worse with really oily skin!

The bottle comes with a pump which is nice, however, the pump does release quite a fair amount in one pump so just use one pump first and if you need more then go for another.  The foundation comes out quite watery, however, it does provide the stated coverage when applied.

Overall, I've used this foundation for over a month now & still grab for it once in a while.  I like the finish it gives me, and I learnt not to touch my face whenever I have foundation on which is another added bonus I guess.  The shade fits me well - I bought 220 (I'm an NC25-27) and like I said, it lasts all day.  It's also the only drug-store liquid foundation that hasn't broken me out, so I'm impressed with that as well.  While it's not the best foundation out there, for the price, packaging and formula, I consider it pretty good!

Comes in around 12 shades (from Boots) & caters for both pink and yellow undertones.
Price: 7.99GBP
