New foundation alert!
After reading an article about Kim Kardashion’s favourite foundations, I decided that I had to try at least one of them. The Maybelline FIT Me Foundation (Matte + Poreless) is not just good, it’s amazing. I usually purchase high end foundations for my combination/sensitive skin, so I was on the fence at first but I decided it was worth a try especially since it receives great reviews on plenty of makeup sites.
Here’s why I love this foundation:
If you have oily/combination skin and prefer a medium-full coverage then this foundation is right up your alley. The best part? It doesn’t cost as much as higher end foundations. It is completely fragrance free and has not given my sensitive acne-prone skin any bad reactions. I don’t need to touch up throughout the day because it is a matte foundation. There are 12 shades to choose from and the colour matching is beyond what I expected. It really does help minimize the appearance of pores as well!
I bought the shade Natural Beige in #220. This foundation dries quickly and it dries to a velvety finish and while it does work well applied with fingers or a buffing brush, I found the most natural application was with a beautyblender sponge which can be purchased at Sephora. If you want light coverage, simply apply a dime size amount of the foundation to your face and blend it with a damp beautyblender. If you prefer heavier coverage, you can apply more product to the beautyblender and you’re set! This foundation is very easy to blend into the skin, the only downside is that it isn’t buildable.
I’ve been using this foundation for a month now and I simply love the longevity and the way it feels on my skin. I do use a setting powder by Laura Mercier (but I also got a good 8 hours of coverage before blotting when I didn’t set it with powder) and it’s affordable which makes it the perfect foundation for me.
Have you tried this foundation yet?
