Not a new launch but a cult favorite for a reason! Maybelline Fit me Matte +Poreless Foundation has been my go to foundation for daily wear these days and I can swear by it!
Bottle reads suitable for oily to normal skin. Other than for extremely dry skin, the formula is suitable for all skintypes.
Price & availability
The foundation is priced at ₹500/- for 30ml but always discounted around ₹300/- to ₹400/- on Amazon! Also available on Nykaa, Flipkart etc
The packaging is a classic transparent glass bottle with a plastic cap that shuts tighty. Has no applicator so one has to pour it out and apply on face with fingers /brush. There’s always a chance of pouring out more than what you need! Despite the glass body, the bottle is travel friendly thanks to the tight cap.
My skin type is oily combination and sensitive and the shade 310 Sun Beige is a perfect match with yellow undertones. The foundation consistency is neither runny nor thick but workable even with fingers. I use a brush and the foundation blends into my skin effortlessly! Unless you go overboard with layering the foundation will not leave a white cast in flash photography as well .
It spreads well and sets into skin – like matte finish suitable for daily wear with sheer to buildable coverage . You can easily layer it for medium coverage and it still would not look cakey.
It does have an artificial mildly paint – like fragrance which wears down within 10 to 15 minutes of application so will not bother sensitive noses.
In humid climate however it might not be able to control shine but will not cause shine on it’s own . The wear time is easily 7+ hours on my skin in humid climate (Kerala) with an occasional setting with compact powder every 2-3 hours.
It does oxidize a little on skin but not like it would change the color entirely.
So, to summarize :
✔️ Naturally skin like yet mattifying, which won’t accentuate dryness.
✔️ Blends easily even with fingers (i use brush and love how evenly it spreads out).
✔️ Buildable coverage which is good enough for daily use without appearing cakey.
✔️ Suitable for oily, combination and normal skintype.
✔️ Can be easily taken off with micellar water.
✔️ Affordable and truly value for money.
✔️ Easily available online and offline.
❌Absence of a proper dispenser.
❌Glass bottle – heavy for travelling.
❌Won’t hide stubborn acne marks and red blemishes.
⏺️Not the sweetest fragrance out there but wears out in no time.
Overall, you may give Maybelline Fit Me foundation a shot even if you are new to the world of liquid foundations. It is easy on the pocket, does the job well and is super easy to use.
