After hearing a lot of rave about the new Maybelline fit me range , I thought that I would check some products out and give it a try. So, I ordered the Maybelline fit me foundation in the shade 322 warm honey from nykaa.com. I thought this could be my perfect skin tone match but it turned out darker than my skin tone. I felt so bad on the first because I was looking so dark but then i noticed few things that how the formula has worked on my face.
The Maybelline FIT me foundation comes in a glass bottle with no pump or dropper which is a drawback because it’s kind of difficult to take it out. But I think one can manage with that by taking it out a small amount on the back of the hand and then apply it. The lid is black in colour and opens up on turning it as you can see in the images.
What The Maybelline FIT me foundation claims:
This ultra-lightweight foundation contains micro-powders that absorb oil for a matte and poreless-looking finish
Unique formula goes beyond matching just skin tone and also matches the texture of normal to oily skin for the ultimate natural fit. Dermatologist and allergy tested, this mattifying foundation does not clog pores and is oil-free.
What is my Review:
Although it’s dark for me but it does what it says when I used it. I got a combination skin, my T-zone is oily and the area around mouth is a bit dry. So I really have to cleanse then moisturize my skin and then have to start off with my makeup. The consistency of the Maybelline FIT me foundation is neither too running nor too thick. Its kind of a medium consistency like a creamy consistency. But one important thing is that this foundation dries quickly. You really have to work fast whilst applying it. So when I applied the foundation, I took a small amount of it on the back of my hand and dot it over one side of my face and then blended it using my fingers quickly, and then I repeated the same thing on the other half of my face. It blended so well with the skin, doesn’t feel heavy at all and it feels skin like. It does gave me a matte look which doesn’t look like I have applied foundation. Its perfect for daily use when you need coverage also but don’t wanna have too much on the face.
So, the main thing is to choose the right shade for yourself. You really need to go to some store to get your correct shade and it’s quite affordable. It costed me INR 525 here in India. I am guiding you because I made this mistake of buying it online without knowing my shade, but I really searched online a lot before buying it online. The package was proper and the product was in good condition but I picked the wrong shade. Anyways, I use this to add contour to my face and to give a tan look sometimes.
