I have tried the Maybelline Fit Me range previously a long time ago so I thought I would give them a second chance. I was in boots a few weeks ago and thought I would re purchase them and see what I thought. Over the years my skin has changed, become a lot clearer and hardly any blemishes but its still oily.
So I picked up the Maybelline Fit Me Foundation in the shade 125 “Nude Beige”. Usually across most foundations I range from a nude, nude beige to sand depending on the shade range available. I think boots have approx. 10-12 shades in store or online. My skin itself isn’t pale or dark im in between I guess. Sometimes I tan but not often so I would use this when I haven’t tanned. I did find with this shade it has more of a yellow tone than a pink.
I apply this using my new foundation brush which I love which blends it nicely and gives me good coverage. The foundation itself I would say is a medium coverage and gives a natural look. It leaves a dewy finish which if im honest I prefer a matte finish but I do always apply powder so its something I can live with. If im wanting more coverage I apply Mac’s Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation over the top using my Real Techniques Powder Brush. Iv found it lasts pretty well during the day, as I have oily skin I do have an odd touch up using Soap & Glory's One Heck of a Blot in Translucent.
Onto the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in “Medium”. This comes in 6 shades and I tried to pick the one closet to my foundation shade. One thing I love about this product is how creamy it is. It has a lovely feel and blends in really easily without being thick. If I apply this on top of foundation its good for under eye dark circles. If I need a little extra coverage I will apply a small amount before foundation and then again on top of foundation.
All in all I have to say I do love these two products on there own or together. Its great for a natural daytime look but if I want a full coverage foundation I will opt for my all time favourite Seventeens Stay Time Foundation. I will be reviewing this foundation on my blog soon.
