Maybelline Fit Me Loose Finishing Powder Review and Swatches | Shade 15 Light - India
Maybelline Fit Me Loose Finishing Powder | Shade 15 Light


Hello Everyone! Hope you all are doing well. Recently, Maybelline Fit Me Loose Powder is launched in India and I wanted to try my hands on it. I love Maybelline. It is no doubt, one of my favorite or I will say my favorite makeup brand. But, I was confused because the Fit Me Range, which is loved by everyone, has slightly different impressions on my skin. The concealer dried my under eye skin and the Fit Me Foundation, being good, made my few dry patches visible because no matter how much I moisturize my skin, it was drying. But when I saw YouTubers loving it, I just decided to go for it and in honestly, it is the best. I am loving it. Let us get into the review.

Price: Rs.695/- for 20 gm

I bought it on Discount from Nykaa.com


Shade: 15 Light

In India, it is launched in 4 Shades I guess but I have seen on YouTube that in foreign markets, it is definitely in lots of shades including a good range of medium to deep and from cool to warm undertones.

Usually, selecting shades online is a tough job but with this, it was quite easy. I saw Malvika talking on her channel that the shade Light/Medium is bit dark so it was definitely, Light for me. Also, this light shade is a perfect match for my skin. It is in the beige shade with a peachy tint to it which will suit all the neutral to beige skin tones.

Maybelline Fit Me Loose Finishing Powder Review


My Skin Type: Light/Beige with Neutral to Pink Undertones. Combination to Oily, Sensitive and Acne-Prone Skin.

Packaging: It directly comes in a Plastic Box secured with a twist-and-lock kind of lid. It is also being compared by Huda Beauty Baking Powder and seriously these two look same. I was surprised as it doesn't have any outer box or something but It came in perfectly fine without any damage or mess. Usually, with loose powders, it is a thing that you will open the lid the powder will be everywhere. But, the packaging of this fit me loose powder is so smart, that it won't spill up in any case. It has a high neck where the powder is collected so even if you take a lot or tilt the product upside down, there won't be any spillage or wastage or mess. Love it!

Only thing is, it doesn't come with an applicator so you will need to carry your powder brush or beauty blender with you if you are traveling with it. But that's okay. I am happy with brush and blender and as most of the time, applicators don't work like the way you want.

My Experience with Fit Me Loose Finishing Powder

Soft and Smooth Texture

When I first took some powder and rubbed it between my fingertips, it literally felt super soft. Then I tried a little buy rubbing onto my wrist and I definitely notice the difference in skin texture. The area where I applied the powder was looking so blurred and smooth. This took my excitement level onto the next point.

Application with a Powder Brush

I tried this with both, a powder brush and with a beauty blender. With a brush, I took a tiny amount and dusted all over my face especially over my T-Zone area because it gets oily first. I also took some amount and patted over my under eye area to set my concealer in place. And with the brush application, what I noticed was, it definitely, instantly smoothes and blurs the area giving a filtered kind of texture. It gives a slightly matte look without drying. My under eye area, no doubt, looked way more soft, smooth and even toned.

Application with a Beauty Blender

When I took some liberal amount with the help of tip of beauty blender and dabbed under my eyes, it was magic. With a blender, it took more amount of powder and the application and the effect was more Intense, I will say. My under eye area look filtered. It made those tiny pores and texture disappeared. The area looked and felt soft and smooth. And I also applied the powder on my T-Zone area and on my smile lines with beauty blender as well. With the beauty blender, the application was much better especially for under eyes and smile lines.

So what I do, when I am wearing foundation and concealer or simply I have enough of time and I want the more filtered look, I use my beauty blender, otherwise, I will swirl the brush over my face and I am all set. That's a quick process. Haha! In both the cases, it sets the makeup pretty well. It is just with the blender it looks more smooth than with a brush.

Instantly Blurs and Smoothes the Skin Texture

The effect is instantly visible. When I applied the powder under my one eye, both eye areas looked totally different. The powdered area was much better, soft, smooth, and looked filtered. It instantly blurred the texture going on.

Sets Makeup in Place and Prevents Creasing for Good 6 Hours

I guess we all face the under eye creasing the most. It is an unavoidable thing but we can delay it with loose powders. Of course, it instantly filters everything but what matters the most that for how long it will be like this. And I will say all the effect it has, be it preventing creasing or excess shine or oil, it will be for max 6 hours only which is pretty good. After 6 hours or so, I noticed shine and oil on my nose and my under eye creasing was there.

Prevents Excess Oil and Shine for 6 Hours

As I mentioned above, the effect lasts long for 6 hours. I have combination skin and my T-Zone area gets oily first especially around the nose and this fit me loose powder controlled the shine and greasiness for almost 6 hours which isn't bad. For an event or party, 6 hours is good I guess. 😃

Doesn't Dries up my Skin

I hate it when I feel stretchy or dryness on my face after makeup. I want my skin to feel healthy and nourished after makeup. Yes, I have oily T-zone and I want to avoid that but I don't want to feel dry at all. This loose powder gave me that hint of a matte look, controlled the excess oil without making my skin feel dry. That is just so awesome.

Is there any coverage?

It has tint. Or I will say it has the pigmentation. But there wasn't any coverage. Whatever the pigmentation it has, it was helping in evening out and blurring the skin. And it itself claims that it has translucent kind of coverage which was quite true.

Any Flashback?

Nope! And I also believe that the reason for this could be also that it matches my skin tone. It isn't too bright for me. Neither it is extremely yellow or white like Banana or Translucent Powder. It has that perfect beige tone with a peachy tint to it which matches my skin and helps in setting my makeup, blurring the texture and evening out my skin without being too excessive.

I tried it with just Moisturizer

It says it can be worn alone so I tried it over my moisturizer and concealer and it worked quite well. There wasn't any coverage or I will say very sheer coverage but the pigmentation it has evened out the skin making it slightly better. So yes, it definitely can be worn alone for an even and smooth look.

Can you bake your makeup with it?

Of course, you can. Take a good amount and place it under your eyes or smile lines, let it sit for seconds or a minute and dust it off. And you are done. Sometimes I feel like it all depends on our mood. Sometimes we are in hurry and brush it all and sometimes we set and dab and bake and what not. 😃

Any Skin Irritation or Breakouts? Nope!

Yay! No Breakouts. Having Sensitive and Acne-Prone skin is so challenging and it feels so happy when a product works for you. I tried it all possible ways such as wearing alone or over makeup for continuous 2-3 days and there wasn't any skin irritation or itching or a pimple. Everything worked out smoothly. 😃

As you can see in the hand swatches there is hardly any noticeable coverage but the area looks quite settled down, blurred and soft. And to show the effect little more, here I am attaching my picture where I set my makeup, especially under the eyes, around the nose, cheek area and on the T-Zone with the Maybelline Fit Me Loose Powder in the Shade "Light".

Maybelline Fit Me Loose Finishing Powder vs. FACES Ultime Pro Mineral Loose Powder

First of all, both are finishing powder and both are mineral based powder. FACES Loose Powder is loved by everyone and I loved that too. Both are quite the same but the Fit Me one is 20gm for Rs.695/- whereas the FACES one is only 7gm for Rs.799/-. Isn't it a huge difference? FACES one comes with an applicator but still, you will need a brush. You can go for anyone, but because Maybelline is cost-effective and both Maybelline and FACES loose powders are quite the same, I will recommend you to go for Maybelline one.

In short,
Maybelline Fit Me Loose Powder is a fabulous and cost-effective loose finishing/setting powder. The packaging is super smart and there won't be any mess and wastage. The texture is super soft and smooth and Instantly blurs the skin texture giving a smooth, even and filtered look without any flashback. Gives a slight matte effect without drying my skin. It prevents creasing, excess oil and shine for good 6 hours. Doesn't give me any irritation or breakout. I simply Loved it.
