Sale Alert for my readers-

Ask anybody about their favorite foundation, Maybelline Fit Me Foundation will be on their list. Maybelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless Foundation is a cult favorite foundation as it comes in I guess 40 shades, it is lightweight, perfect for everyday use, and it doesn’t burn a hole in the pocket. The availability of the shades might differ across the globe. 

It took me a long time to find my love for this foundation but when I did, I realized why it is everyone’s favorite and mine now as well.

So after two whole years, here I am sharing my experience and review for the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation (Normal to Oily Skin) and the Swatches for the Shade “120 Classic Ivory” and along with a makeup look I created using Maybelline Foundation.

My Experience

When I saw the world going crazy for one particular foundation, I decided to go for it for sure and see what’s in there which is making everyone crazy.   Even though it is matte and is ideal for normal to oily skin, I have seen people with dry skin claiming Maybelline Fit Me Foundation as their favorite. 

Didn’t work for me During Winters

When I bought this, my oily skin was becoming slightly dry due to winters and when I first used it, I didn’t like it at all. Literally.    Even though it is not that 100% matte instead it is a comfortable matte, my dry skin was not feeling satisfied with it. My skin was feeling and looking drier. I wondered how dry skin people are loving it?   I didn’t use the foundation for months.

Tried it Again During Summers

I again put this foundation to use when there was summer and my skin was again back to oily. I am a person who loves a natural finish when it comes to foundation. I don’t like extremely dewy base neither a total matte one. I love my skin to have that nourished, glowy and healthy look.  

Because I didn’t like the foundation at first and found it too matte, the Inner Me was not willing to give this another try with 101% excitement.   

But the moment I tried it during the summer season when my skin was oily, I fell in love with the Maybelline Fit Me Foundation. 

Best Foundation for Oily Skin

It was so lightweight as if I didn’t apply any foundation at all. I blended it with my fingers and it blended so well giving a medium and even coverage. There was no uncomfortable matte-ness. My Oily skin was feeling like it found a perfect and best foundation for summers. The matte-ness helped to control the excess shine without making the skin look dry.   

It really helped me to achieve a Natural Makeup Look.  

I used it daily and it went so well without giving any allergic reactions or breakouts. I didn’t even use any makeup fixer or setting powder and it stayed well without creasing. But if you plan to use this foundation for the whole day or for a special occasion, do set it with a loose powder so that the oils don’t peak through after hours and with a makeup fixer to increase the longevity.  

If you are working or college-going and looking for the best everyday foundation for oily skin within budget, Maybelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless Foundation is for you.

Coming to the claims of blurring the pores, I didn’t notice anything as such. I do not have that major problem of open pores but yes, there are visible pores. The foundation neither blurred them nor highlighted them so it was all good. 

Best Lightweight Foundation for Everyday Use

It helps in achieving an even base for your “No-Makeup” Makeup Look.    And the best part, it does not transfer. During humid days I will advise you to set it with a loose powder to avoid and transferring caused by sweating otherwise I didn’t face any issue as such.

Summing Up

It is super lightweight with comfortable matte formula and blends easily with fingers, giving a medium coverage. It doesn’t crease, oxidize, or transfer. Gives a natural finish for a “no-makeup” makeup look. But, didn’t work for me during winters when my skin turned dry.
