Newly on the Maybelline stand is the Fit Me Collection which consists of foundation, concealer
and a pressed powder each of which have been split into three colour categories: light, medium
and dark - I can't seem to source just how many shades are available but after looking at the Maybelline
stand in my local supermarket which is far from well equipped and even that had a great colour selection.
"Flawless that lets the real you come through.
Fit Me Foundation, it's make-up that doesn't mess with you.
No oils, no waxes, no nonsense.
Natural coverage that leaves skin the way it was meant to be fresh, breathing, natural.
Exclusive translucent base and lightweight pigments allow skin's natural highs
and lows to show through."
Maybelline Fit Me Foundation in 220 Natural Beige
The foundation in the Fit Me line comes very well presented within a glass bottle with black
accents and a built in pump which prevents waste from dispensing excess product.
I slot into the medium skin category and have been sent shade 220 natural beige which is a really good match, the foundation itself is a light textured liquid which offers medium to high coverage but can be a little
tricky to blend particularly if you have any dry patches if that is the case I suggest dampening your brush
before application, the plus side is that it does not settle into my enlarged pores and does offer
great coverage so much so that I didn't bother with concealer when I wore tested it.
Maybelline Fit Me foundation settles to a natural dewy finish and wore for around 7 hours before
signs of wear appeared on my oily areas (mainly my t-zone) but I do have to say it is a great high street
foundation that covers well and is comfortable to wear.
Maybelline Fit Me Liquid Concealer in 220 Natural Beige
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer is presented within a long slim tube and has a doe foot applicator
which I loathe in lip gloss products but find it to work very well with this kind of product
as it allows you to dab on the product and then blend out using your fingertips/brush.
The concealer in the Fit Me range is of a creamy liquid consistency and can be used to conceal
blemishes or under eye circles and as it isn't too thick it doesn't gather into fine lines that are
often a problem for the under eye area.
It covers blemishes well and settles to a matte finish and wears for around 8 hours when set
with a powder product and didn't present any problems for my oily skin.
Maybelline Fit Me Pressed Powder in 220 Natural Beige
Maybelline Fit Me Pressed Powder feels rather pricey and looks pretty swish despite being encased
in a plastic square black compact that features a soft facial puff to apply or touch up during the day
and a sizeable mirror which always comes in handy.
Again I was sent Natural Beige which is surprisingly lighter in tone compared to the other Natural Beige
products in the collection, I initially put this down to it perhaps oxidising throughout the day
but that is not the case at all but what I can say is that despite being rather light and almost chalky
in colour when buffed into the skin using a large brush it blends into the skin tone seamlessly.
The Fit Me Pressed Powder has a soft velvet like texture that sets make-up and reduces shine
from the face without masking the face and wore for around 4 hours at a time on my oily skin.
The Maybelline Fit Me* collection is available now at most Maybelline stockists
but has not crept online as of yet!
