Remember when I told you a while back that Maybelline was adding more shades to Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation? Well they’ve finally arrived in stores and I couldn’t be happier! I’ve been a fan of Maybelline Fit Me Foundation for years so I was excited to try the new Matte + Poreless formula when it first launched even though the shade range wasn’t too expansive. Especially when it came to darker complexions. Thankfully, Maybelline heard our cries and relaunched Fit Me Matte + Poreless in 8 new shades to better suit fair and deep complexions. Yay!
Influenster decided to help Maybelline celebrate the relaunch of Fit Me Matte + Poreless by including them in their latest Vox Box. In case you’ve missed my previous posts, Influenster is a completely free program that sends you free products to review in exchanging for writing reviews and posting on social media. I’ve received quite a few Vox Boxes over the years so I wasn’t too surprised when I was selected to receive the new Maybelline Make Fit Happen Vox Box. I actually already own the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation but I don’t mind receiving another bottle or telling you all about it again.
So here’s the scoop! Fit Me Matte + Poreless is a creamy, lightweight buildable light to medium coverage foundation with a soft matte finish that minimizes oil and shine for a smooth, even complexion that doesn’t slide off too easily. It’s a formula that’s better suited for normal to oily skin but it works quite well with my dry skin–especially in the summer. Of course, I still have to make sure I moisturize and follow up with a nice hydrating primer to keep it from looking too flat or dry but it isn’t terribly drying without the extra maintenance. It’s not a formula I’d reach for in the winter but I think Fit Me Matte + Poreless is a wonderful summer foundation as it doesn’t slide right off if I bust a sweat and it doesn’t make me look greasy or shiny either. Instead, Fit Me Matte + Poreless stays put all day and leaves me looking flawless even in the hottest conditions.
Fit Me Matte + Poreless doesn’t just last all day. It’s also very easy to apply. Some matte formulas have a tendency to dry and set too quickly making them hard to apply and blend. Maybelline nailed Fit Me Matte + Poreless by giving it a nice, creamy texture that glides across the skin while allowing you plenty of time to smooth and blend without giving your wrists a serious workout. I find that the formula works well with either a sponge or makeup brush so the application options are endless to help you achieve your desired result.
I know it may be hard to believe that a drugstore foundation is this great but believe it! I’ve tried a handful of high end and drugstore foundations and Maybelline Fit Me (both formulas) are still very high up on my list of faves. The original Fit Me Foundation was the first foundation I fell in love with years ago and I still use it from time to time to this day. It’s not just good for a drugstore foundation. It’s solid all the way around! I think the Maybelline Fit Me line (concealer included) rivals some of the higher end formulas with it even outperforming some of the more expensive stuff. Whether you’re a beauty on a budget or simply a foundation junkie I think you’ll enjoy the Maybelline Fit Me line and should definitely give it a go the next time you see it in stores.
