Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation Review

Fit Me Matte and Poreless from Maybelline New York is described as the ultimate natural skin fit that goes beyond skin tone matching to solve the unique texture issues of normal to oily skin. Some foundations can exaggerate pores and oily skin, but the Fit Me claims to contain genius blurring micro-powders that erase pores and absorb oil for a naturally matte and poreless-looking finish.

Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless Foundation comes in a clear glass bottle with a black screw cap. This bottle is quite light, does not feel very bulky and the cap is tight and secure, making it travel-friendly. Its shade name and number is mentioned on the sticker at the top of the cap. The only factor that bothered me with its packaging is that it comes without a pump dispenser. This makes it unhygienic and messy to get the product out and also leads to wastage of the product.

My Experience With Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation

I bought this foundation in the shade ‘220 Natural Beige’ for my fair complexion. It was so easy to apply, and a little went a long way. I used my fingers to blend, and to my surprise, it applied very smoothly and evenly. I particularly suggest trying this technique if you are new to using foundation as it’s quick, simple, and it even looks great.

Texture And Fragrance

The Fit Me has a creamy soft texture, and its consistency is slightly runny. So, be careful not to get too much out of the bottle as this will only lead to wastage. It has an extremely faint fragrance that did not bother me one bit.

Coverage And Efficacy

The coverage of this foundation is absolutely incredible – it’s buildable, so you can achieve a medium to high coverage according to what you prefer. It covers acne scars, blemishes, and dark spots beautifully! What I loved most about it is how lightweight it felt on my skin – it actually did not feel like I was even wearing foundation. I got so many compliments while wearing this foundation as my skin looked fabulously dewy.

If you have oily skin, you needn’t worry because this will be your holy grail. It mattifies your skin and makes it look super radiant. I was so thrilled because I did not have to constantly bother myself with touch-ups or even use a compact over this.

If you are someone with dry skin, you need to moisturize and hydrate your skin properly before going in with this foundation. However, even during the winter, when my skin was rather dry and dull, this was my go-to foundation, and it did not highlight my dry patches.

It’s also suitable for sensitive skin – it did not cause any acne or breakouts.

Staying Power

Coming to the staying power, it stays on until you actually take it off at the end of the day. I wore this to the beach, and it conveniently withstood water splashes, so this foundation is water-resistant to a certain extent. Also, what’s remarkable about the Fit Me foundation is that it somehow adapts itself on any skin type – so whether you have dry skin, oily skin, textured, porous or shiny skin, it just works perfectly.

How To Use This Product?

This is applied to the skin and blended with fingertips or an applicator. Read the step by step tutorial for more details.

Barbara Ritzman, a beauty specialist and founder of Barbie’s Beauty Bits, says, “Applying foundation with clean fingertips is a popular method, especially for those looking for a natural finish. Simply dab small amounts of foundation onto your face and blend it using your fingers. However, since your fingers aren’t as effective as sponges or brushes in blending and distributing foundation, extra care must be taken to blend properly.

If you desire a flawless finish, opt for a beauty sponge. Ensure it’s damp to prevent excessive product absorption. Apply the foundation with a gentle dabbing motion, avoiding smudging or swiping. Utilize the pointed tip of the sponge for seamless blending around the nose and eyes.”

Shelf Life: 30 months

Will I Recommend This Product?

I would absolutely recommend the Maybelline Fit Me Matte And Poreless Foundation, especially to women with oily skin. It works beautifully even for normal, dry, and combination skin types. It’s most suitable for those of you looking for a lightweight foundation to even out your skin tone by covering minor imperfections, redness, pigmentation, and marks. It offers buildable coverage, and you have a lot to work with.

Also, if you are someone who is low-maintenance and are on the hunt for a foundation that is extremely easy to use without looking like you have a “heavy base” going on, this is something that you will absolutely love.
