Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation in 330 Toffee Caramel : ReviewTuesday, January 12, 2016
You all must be aware by now that Maybelline recently launched its Fit Me! range which consists of foundations, concealers and blushes. I instantly grabbed the foundation of my shade. It seems like I've found my HG foundation. Want to know how? Simply keep reading!
● Mattifies and refines pores
● Matches natural tones
● Natural, seamless finish
Price: Rs. 525/- for 30 ml
Maybelline Fit Me! foundation comes in a glass bottle with a black screw cap. I wish it had an applicator attached with cap. It has to be handled with care to avoid accidental dropping and breaking it. However, packaging looks stylish.
My Experience: Matte + Poreless catched my attention and for my oily skin, this couldn't be better! It is water based and not heavy at all unlike other foundation. Its consistency is very light. It gave me a break from my lakme foundation. It has a mild smell that isn't overpowering.
Since this foundation comes in 6 shades, I picked the Toffee Caramel 330 which seemed fit for my dusky skin but it's 2 shades darker than my face. Thankfully compact takes care of that. It is the darkest shade of this range. Warm Honey is also a shade for medium to dusky skin which is second last darkest shade. I'd recommend swatching it in the store itself to find your matching shade.
I apply it after moisturizing my face and it spreads evenly. It mattifies my face and I can see my pores a bit blurred. It's best for normal to oily skin and dry skinned girls would have to moisturize their face adequately before application. It imparts a sheer coverage which can be build by adding layers giving a medium to full coverage. I love the fact that it looks natural. Sometimes I use it as a concealer under my BB cream and it works great that way.
Its staying power is 5 hours and if set with compact it stays for 7-8 hours. It surely is long lasting. I'm glad that Maybelline has also catered for dusky girls this time and a foundation of their match. Thumbs up for that Maybelline! ;)
Here's me wearing this foundation!

● Light, water based foundation that isn't oily at all!
● Reasonable price for the quality it offers.
● Decent staying power.
● Doesn't look cakey and unnatural.
● Ladies who want full coverage would be a bit disappointed.
Final Word: Well, you can see that pros outweigh cons. If you are a matte foundation lover then this is a right pick. Its staying power is too good, is water based and I love using it! Definitely recommended!
