Tried it Tuesday-- Fit Me! Choose me! Love me!

.... does that quote ring a bell to anyone? ;)

Today I am finally doing a review of Maybelline's Fit Me! foundation, concealer, and pressed powder. I wanted to give it a good week of trial before reporting back!

What it is:
Fit Me! Foundation, $7.99: A flawless foundation that lets the real you come through. No oils, no waxes, no nonsense. Exclusive translucent base and lightweight pigments allow skin's natural highs and lows to shine through. Contains SPF 18. 
Fit Me! Concealer, $6.49:  A concealer that goes beyond matching to fresh, breathing, natural skin. It's makeup that doesn't mess with you. (The rest is same as the foundation). 
Fit Me! Pressed Powder, $7.99: A powder with a flawless, natural finish. Natural coverage that leaves skin the way it was meant to be... fresh, breathing, flawless. 

There is also blush and bronzer, $5.49 each, but I really am not in need of more blush or bronzer so I held off on purchasing those~

This line is neat in that you find which foundation works for you, and then you pick up the other products in the same number and they all coordinate. Not exactly a new idea-- L'Oreal and CoverGirl have done this-- but it still is convenient!!

I love the packaging! Sleek and simple, but it has personality, too.

It has such a large mirror! Score!
For comparison: Foundation on left, bare skin on right. 
For comparison: Closeup of Foundation + Concealer on left, bare skin on right. 
Foundation + Concealer = Flawless!!
I always have such funny faces... Foundation + Concealer + Powder on left, bare skin on right. 

Go get all three of these. Now. 

I'm serious.

I've never liked a foundation as much as this one! First of all, let's consider the packaging. Nice, sleek bottle, and the opening is just small enough that you can put your finger over the top and do the "shake" thing to get the product on your finger, you know what I mean? Haha-- so nice to not have to use a Qtip or something. I also like that it's not shiny/shimmery, but it leaves your skin looking so polished and healthy. HOWEVER-- this formula does NOT contain anything for oil control, so if you have very oily skin, you might not prefer the liquid foundation, but rather the pressed powder. 

At Ulta and some Walgreens they have little sample vials on display where you can see which color works for you. For the love of Pete, do NOT test it on your hand-- your hand hardly ever matches your face-- simply find a mirror and try it on your jawline and forehead, and choose the one that appears to disappear. 

The concealer is to die for. I adore it-- it blends SO SEAMLESSLY!! The *only* complaint I have is that it settles into the crease under my eyes, but it does so after a few minutes, (say, the time it takes to do my mascara), and then I gently wipe it off and do a sweep of the pressed powder, and it doesn't happen again. Done.

The powder is great in that you put it on and your face doesn't look powdery and chalky. Although, it does tend to show my large pores, but I really think you can't get away from that with a powder. I haven't used it just by itself yet, but it is excellent for touch-ups throughout the day!

They seem to have a good range of shades, and the stores that carry it have great return policies, so keep your receipt and if the color doesn't match or you don't like it, exchange or take it back~

What do you think? What are you currently using? Wanting to try this one? Leave some thoughts! =)

Until next time--

  1. I've been using all 3 of these since last Friday and LOVE them! I've been strictly a Clinique pressed powder girl for years, but I love this whole system!

  2. OOO isn't it great??! I used to not think you could find fantastic products at the drugstore, but many of them are made side-by-side with the department store ones! Go, Maybelline. =)
