Maybelline Fit me Foundation Review

My go to foundation brand is Lakme as they have a good range ,is affordable and I mostly find my true match here .But ever since Lakme has hiked their prices considerably without making any significant quality changes, I have been looking at other brands too .

I had heard of perfect fit jeans but a "Perfect fit foundation" !
Maybelline is a budget brand with good quality so when the SA convinced me that this was the best match for my skin I brought it home.
Here is my review after trying it out a few more times .

                                                           


Price  Rs 525/-  for 30 ml .It claims to have  25 percent anti shine perlite, micro blurring powders, to make visible pores and shine disappear, getting you the perfect selfie ready look .



                                         PROS of Maybelline Fit Me Foundation


                                                            


  1. Affordable and easily available offline and online 
  2. Fit me foundation comes in two finishes-  the Fit Me matte  for normal to oily, and Fit me Dewy - for dry to normal skin .
  3. Maybelline Fit Me Matte  Poreless foundation is available in 6 shades.The shades are - 115 (Ivory) ,230 (Natural buff) ,310 (sun Beige ),322(warm Honey ),330 (toffee) and 128 (medium Beige ). I was matched to 322 Warm Honey which matched my skin tone quite well .
  4. Lightweight formula which is easy to blend and gives me a matte finish though the SA advised me to use a primer or moisturiser underneath to get better results especially in the cold dry weather .
  5. I did not need any loose powder to set it into a matte finish but after a few hours you may need a bit of powdering .
  6. It stayed put for a good 4 hours on my oily skin in pleasant weather (neither sultry nor dry ).
  7. It gives moderate coverage ,which means minor flaws are well covered but darker discolourations and pits would still need concealing .




                                                  CONS of Maybelline Fit Me Foundation

  1.  I feel six shades are still not enough in a country like ours, some of you might need to mix two shades to achieve the right shade . 
  2. Can be difficult to spread easily in winters so I recommend using a moisturiser before applying it especially in dry weather .
  3. No sun protection .
  4. No illuminating effect .
  5. No plumping effect  on the skin .
  6. I do not like the fact that it has no dispenser .


                                               


FINAL VERDICT  - As a long lasting , mattifying foundation it works very well for my complexion . It will be good for medium complexioned , oily skin beauties especially for summer season as the face does not get shiny or oily for a good 4-6 hours . 
I rate it 3.5 / 5 .


                                               


Repurchase - maybe ... maybe not !
