Although I know that the concept of this line of makeup isn't new (L'Oreal's True Match line is similar as far as advertising), I had heard about this for a while and it intrigued me. Sometimes I run into the problem of mismatching my concealer when I don't use its coordinating foundation, or sometimes I end up buying a blush that's too light for my skin. So, this is indeed a nice idea especially for those who don't want to take too much time guessing which shades go together.
I was able to find part of the collection at my Target (I drove to my CVS, Walgreens, Ulta, and Walmart looking for it to no avail. GAAAH!). I noticed that not all of the shades were available in the display, but I'm assuming it will be complete next month when it's officially released. Furthermore, only the foundation and pressed powder were available in my display. Both were $6.99 and I purchased both. :)
I actually am quite impressed with their shade selection. Not many drugstore foundations have anything yellow/beige enough for my skin. I'm NC30 and I found 2 good matches good with shades 210 (Sandy Beige) and 220 (Natural Beige). I could get away with wearing both shades, but 210 is a much safer bet for me now that it's winter. I was also able to swatch 230 (peachy-yellow toned) and 235 (beige/pink). I would say that 220 may also match NC35's, and it's comparable in color to Classic Beige in Maybelline's 24 Hour Superstay foundation.
I was worried that this foundation may not work for me because I'm quite oily. Surprisingly, despite the satin/glowy finish, I thought it lasted for a decent amount of time given that I didn't wash my face or put any face primer on. Thus, I'm sure it would last even longer if I didn't skip those steps. I have since worn this foundation with a primer and a setting powder, and I still can say it lasted for a reasonable amount of time. I also don't have a whole lot to cover, so I found that the light-medium coverage was perfect for me. I used my fingers to apply it at first, but I experimented some more and now I prefer to apply it with a foundation brush. However, you can also apply with a flat top brush to attain full coverage.
I must admit, Maybelline Fit Me! Foundation is not my favourite, but I like it enough to list some pros and cons for you.
First of all, thank you Maybelline for the amazing range of colours! They have three categories - light, medium and darker skin tones - and 4 shades in each category, for a total of 12.
Number 105, which I have, is the lightest, as I said, and it is actually a pretty good match, although a tad bit darker, to be precise.
The packaging is very simple, a clear bottle with a very handy pump. Basic and functional, I like that.
The product itself is very liquidy but it turns into a more thick consistency when you rub it into your skin. It provides a very light coverage, although buildable, it feels incredibly light on your face and it has a dewy finish. I like to apply it with my fingertips, for a more natural finish, but a dense synthetic brush, like Sigma's, can work too.
I really like the fact that it is very light-weighted, as many other brands have come out with similar products too lately, but I really can't stand the finish on me, after a little while.
I like the glow but I definitely need to powder my skin 5 minutes after applying the foundation, or it will sink into my pores and accentuate fine lines.
In conclusion, I guess it's not the right foundation if you have combination to oily/very oily skin, but I bet it works well with more normal skintypes.
I have combination to normal skin, although not extremely oily in the t-zone, but I don't mind using a setting powder on certain areas to prevent the product to melt, as I do it with pretty much any foundation I use. Therefore, I still use and enjoy this foundation.
But if you're looking for a matte or very high-coverage and long-lasting foundation and you don't want to be bothered with extra products like powders and such, that's not for you.
For the price though, I'd give this a try.

After using the maybelline matte mousse I wanted to go back and use a liquid foundation , a few of my friends recommended this foundation because we all have different skin types and shades I was interested to see how this foundation would work on on my skin. Just like the matte mousse this foundation did give coverage and hide my spots and blemishes for a while. Although the colour fitted me perfectly and I haven't had any patchiness or dryness like I did with the matte mousse this foundation doesn't provide a wide range of shades and is even more limited in smaller drugstores , which is not idea for anyone who has to buy two foundations so they can mix the shades together or does not see their shade available. So far this is the best liquid drug store foundation I have tried so I will have check out other makeup brands to get an even better coverage.
I kept seeing this foundation everywhere, it was commercially very active and Beyonce did advertise it very well, and seeing it could "fit" her skin tone, I thought, this foundation must be something. I had just finished using my previous foundation, so I thought I'd give this one a try. At first, I honestly didn't have much hope in it, since it was a drugstore product and not all of them end up looking nice on my skin and even start to break me out. It was on sale for like 12 Euros, I thought it was quite a lot for this type of product but I bought it anyway. It is a liquid based foundation, I normally prefer something more wax based so that I get more coverage out of it since the reason I use it because I have quite a bit of discoloration on my face. I knew this one wouldn't have a lot of strong coverage and I was right. The moment I used it, it was kind of dripping down my fingers and I thought, was this a good choice? :s I went with it anyway, knowing its probably not going to change anything on my skin. What it did perfectly was actually FIT my skin tone, when you first apply it, you think oh god I will have patches of foundation on my face, but after a while it sets in and it actually does start to FIT your skin tone. It evened out my skin colour perfectly but didn't do great coverage at all. I didn't have a lot of hopes in it anyway, I still do use this foundation because it wasn't really a waste of my money, it was just another simple foundation that I would wear daily, not if I want a full coverage.
I purchased this Maybelline Fit Me foundation from Boots fairly recently. I picked this one as there were 12 different shades to choose from, and one of them, Nude Beige, was a very good match for my skin.
This comes in a very classy glass bottle, square and uncluttered, with a chunky square black lid. This is very smart and stylish, and actually makes this foundation look more expensive than it actually it, at a very reasonable £7.99. I was slightly surprised when I removed the cap, as it was just an open necked bottle - I'd been expecting some kind of small pump to make measuring easier, so was slightly flummoxed by having to pour out the foundation onto my sponge. I did find this a tricky, and somewhat wasteful process, as often I'd end up with more coming out than I needed, which was almost impossible to get back into the bottle.
The foundation does spread well on the skin, it is quite thin which is a pain in the pouring but great when it comes to getting a consistent, even light coverage. I find this gives my skin an almost flawless finish, making fine lines and large pores less obvious, although actual spots do benefit from a little concealer to help things along. It has a nice matte finish, and is easy to blend which makes it easy to avoid obvious tide lines. It has an SPF factor of 18, so offers an element of skin protection, although I would never rely on makeup alone to protect me from the suns rays.
I use this with a primer, and find it will easily take me through an 8 hour day, from 9 til 5, though I would need to reapply for a night out. This is fairly standard for foundation though, I've yet to find one that lasts much longer on my skin without clogging my pores up. This foundation is also easy to remove at the end of the day, with moist wipes removing it with ease.
Personally, I find this is one of the better foundations I have found in terms of being almost weightless on my face, and giving a good skin matched finish. However, the lack of proper dispenser is messy, wasteful, and annoying, and neccessitates the deduction of not just one, but two stars. If they change the packaging, I'll happily go back to buying this, but until then I'll be using something that is less messy and wasteful to dispense. 3 stars.
I'm quite a big fan of Loreal and Maxfactor foundation but as it is so expensive I tend to use Maybeline because it's really good and a fair bit cheaper than the slightly more luxurious brands. I've used the Maybelline Mousse and often use the Dream Satin Liquid. I decided to give this one a try as it was new to the range when I first saw it and I love to try new products out.
The Maybelline Fit Me foundation variety stands out on the make up stand as the packaging looks much more sophisticated and expensive than that of their other foundations and products. It comes in a clear, thick glass bottle which is square shaped with a black, square lid which has FIT written on in big silver letters. It looks like quite an expensive brand like MAC or something from a distance. It says on the advert that the Maybelline Fit me foundation can match any skin tone so it looks more natural.
The black, plastic lid screws off the top off the bottle to reveal the bottle neck. This is one thing I dislike majorly as there is no pump so you have to tip the bottle up to get the foundation out. I don't use a make-up sponge or brush either so I have to try and get it on my fingers without getting it everywhere else which has proved quite tricky on more than one occasion. It's quite difficult to determine how much foundation comes out so I have to get it out bit at a time quite slowly to avoid waste or using too much.
The foundation is available in 18 shades, from a very pale ivory to darker sunny beige colours and everything inbetween. The large shade variety means you're able to get a colour that closely resembles your skin colour which I like. I opted for the sandy beige colour. I normally wear fawn in the Maybelline liquid but they didn't have it in store when I bought this so I got what looked like the closest thing.
The foundation, once you've got it out the bottle, spreads accross the skin with ease so you don't have to use very much to get quite good coverage. It blends in well and seems to match my skintone quite accurately. I don't cake my foundation on and use it to even out my skin tone and cover minor blemishes which it did well. It feels quite light on the skin so you don't feel as though your face is heavy or dirty which I've experienced in the past with other foundations. It doesn't offer the best coverage, my blemishes are quite minor and I had to use a little extra foundation on these areas to try and even it out.
The foundation feels quite good and gives the skin quite an even, almost blemish free look. It doesn't make my face look shiny either which means I don't have to put powder ontop if I don't want to. It doesn't last paticularly well and I felt it needed re-applying after about 4-5 hours but this is the average kind of time for most foundations that I wear. I think I must touch my face a lot during the day without realising.
This foundation could be good for use in the summer (If we get one this year!) as it has an SPF of 18 which is quite good but as I said it doesn't last paticualrly well and may not last as well in the heat meaning if you don't re-apply, you also lose the SPF. I really dislike the lack of pump which for me is a deal-breaker. I'd rather pay a little extra for the pump or carry on using the Maybelline Liquid satin foundation that has one on it as it's just easier, cleaner and allows you to properly finish the foundation off as you can take the lid off it when it's almost empty and get the last little bits out but you can't do this with this foundation.
The Fit Me range also do colour-matching concealers that go hand in hand with the foundations as well as powders so if you like the range, you can use the same products allover which I think is good. I think the Fit Me range is available wherever Maybelline cosmetics are sold now as it's been out for a while. I've seen it in Boots and Superdrug as well as their online stores though I'd recommend buying foundation in store to get a true colour match.
A bottle of this foundation will set you back £7.99 which is about the average price for foundation these days. It's not the best foundation I've used but it's certainly not the worst either. For the same price and brand though, I'd rather use the liquid satin as it has a pump and slightly better coverage.
When I saw the new FIT foundation I was quite excited, as I love trying new products and the concept of fitting with your skin tone sounded great. I liked the fact that you could also buy a concealer and compact powder from the same range.
Once I got over my excitement, as you can tell I don't get out often, I scooped up my new FIT foundation 210, concealer and compact and went on my merry way. Once I got in I wiped off all my 'morning make up' And began the process. I squirted about about a pump full of foundation and found it to be rather runny, I continued to apply it to my face using a foundation brush. The coverage seemed to be good but my face did look a bit oily. After this I applied the compact foundation and this seemed to take the shine off my face. I Finished my make up regime in a record time of 20 minutes and went off to work.
Throughout the day I checked my complexion, as you do, and found my face to be quite patchy and streaky. I got a clean tissue to try and even out the foundation and once I took the tissue away from my face it looked like it had been tangoed! Streaky orange was not the look I was going for, but if I had been then this would have been great.
Overall I would not buy this foundation again. The idea is great and the bottle is a good design as it is clear and has a pump down applicator. But the colour did not match my complex at all, it would have been closer to a umpa lumpas. The colour and consistency needs to be adjusted. Sorry Maybelline, it just doesn't FIT.
WHAT IS IT?
Maybelline Fit Me foundation is a new foundation that they were giving out free samples of online. It is available to buy now and is a gel foundation that will match any skin tone and is better for the skin than cream foundations.
I think this foundation is very pleasing to use because it has got a soft and smooth texture. It spreads across my skin easy with my foundation brush and does not clog up in any areas, it provides a light coverage and blends very easy without causing me to have patches of uneven colour or lines. My foundation is Buff Beige and that is a natural shade that would suit most people who have got a little bit of a tan but are still pale and natural in their skin tone.
WHAT I THINK
I have used this foundation on my own skin and one of my clients also and we have both had the same experience. The foundation stops the skin from being shiny and it is very good unless you have blemishes on your skin because it does not cover them very good. It gives me a healthy colour and I like how even the tones of my skin are when I am wearing this foundation, I sometimes apply powder over the top but that is not always something I have to do because it is quite matt by itself. It is comfortable to wear and has never made me itch or feel uncomfortable even if I have had it on my skin all day.
It does not last for a full day on my skin and it would not be a foundation to wear if I was going out at night because it does not make my skin look flawless like other foundations do. It is too matt sometimes also and that makes it look quite fake but when I put my blusher on and the rest of my make up that makes it look better, I wore it as part of a natural look last week with nude lipstick and the finish of the foundation made me look sick and pale so now I will only use it when I am applying full make up.
It stains clothing badly and I know this because I smeared a tiny small amount on my top when I was getting ready yesterday and even though I used Vanish in my washing it still hasn't been removed so the top is ruined. I have noticed that if I get a little bit of foundation on my white bathroom sink it stains that also and then it is hard to clean off. It is easy to wash off the face though but it wears off through the day so I think there is not very much left by the time that I have to remove my make up.
Fit Me foundation costs £7.99 and you can buy it in 12 different shades. It contains sunscreen of SPF 18.
3 Dooyoo Stars.
Once again i was drawn to this foundation due to the amount of attention it had got from reviews and the media, so i was very excited to try it out, but i was very disappointed and did not like it very much at all.
The bottle for the foundation is clear, so you can easily see when it is coming to an end and i like the colours of the lid, the blacks and whites made it look very expensive and professional.
I got it home and squirted some out onto my hand, i find applying my foundation easiest this way, as i can easily dip the brush on my hand, in my opinion brushes have the best coverage. My first impression was that it was quite runny, so it did not give me the right first impression, i always find runny foundations give the worst coverage, and this one was no different.
I applied it to my brush and began applying it to my face. It went on very smoothly and left an ok coverage, but it was the after affect where it began to go down hill. I would not recommend this if you have oily skin as after a few hours i began to see a horrible shin on my face the foundation had began to orange and streaky, so found myself taking it off and reapplying it, which can be a nightmare if you do not have the time to do so during the day. I also found this really encourages a break out of spots and i have never had this occur with a foundation before as i always clean my face properly after applying make up. I began cleaning my face more often and it still did nothing, i continued to see my skin flair up, so i have recently stopped using it.
Overall i would not recommend this foundation, it has a nice bottle design but other than that, i can honestly say it is one of the worst foundations i have tried. I especially would not recommend this product to anyone who like me has oily skin, Stay clear and try something else.
After recently running out of my usual foundation, I thought I'd give a different one a try. I do like my usual foundation but thought there might be something better out there and so I purchased the Fit Me Foundation by Maybelline.
What does the product do?
The purpose of the product is to improve the appearance and complexion of your skin. It promises to do so without the usual waxes, oils and fillers which you find in foundations and will give you a translucent gel based coverage which will apparently merge with the skin. It claims that it will have a natural finish and feel, and with an SPF18 included, your skin will be protected from sun damage too.
The product comes in a range of shades which each have a fairly self explanatory name such as Ivory, Nude Beige and caramel. The website has a sort quiz which helps you to find the right shade for you. The shades are split into three groups; fair (100) medium (200) and dark (300) and then you have to decide if your skin has pink or yellow undertones. The quiz will then tell you the three shades which should best suit you. I used this to help me choose my shade and I settled for bottle number 125.
Packaging and Price
The foundation comes contained within a clear glass bottle so you can see the product inside which helps you to know which colour to choose. It has a black screw top lid and the mouth of the bottle is open which means it's difficult to control how much comes out, especially if you are heavy handed like me. It leads to quite a bit of wastage and mess. The product will cost you about £8 and it can be bought from department stores such as Boots, large supermarkets and also from a range of online websites.
Application and Performance
The product is difficult to dispense from the bottle. It is super runny and you have to pour from the bottle. I pour it onto the back of my hand and then use the fingers on the other hand to dab and apply the product to my skin. I have enlarged pores so I use Porefessional by Benefit first to ensure I'm applying it to a smooth surface. It has quite a silky texture and it is easy to apply to the skin. You do have enough time to work with the product before it dries, so you won't end up with streaks or patchy appearance. The product does match my skin quite well and although it looks natural, it does seem to cover most of my imperfections and lightens the circles under my eyes.
It is light and refreshing on the skin so it won't make you feel heavily made up which makes it a good one for day wear. The product does have a dewy finish which is not ideal on an oily skinned person like myself but I always wear a mattifying powder anyway which takes the shininess off my skin. I think it makes my skin a little oilier after a few hours which I don't get because it is supposed to be oil free. It is fairly long last but does start to fade with time and I wouldn't wear this one on a night out. It hasn't caused me to develop any blemishes and it hasn't irritated my skin. It is easily removed using my usual make up remover.
All in all, this is a nice foundation for the day. The packaging is annoying and it's difficult to dispense the foundation but it does glide onto the skin nicely and covers up some of my imperfections. It has a natural but dewy finish and it does make my skin look a bit shiny but it is covered well with a mattifying powder. I do like this foundation but I don't love it so although I'll finish my bottle I probably wouldn't repurchase.
I had recently gone to Boots and had a colour match carried out after which I bought a No 7 foundation. It is a great foundation however I have found that recently my normally clear skin has had a few blemishes of late and also some redness which I think is due to the cold weather. The foundation I had purchased in Boots was only sheer to light coverage so it wasn't enough to hide the redness.
I received a sample of this foundation from Maybelline by liking their Facebook page. I was impressed so I decided to go out and buy a bottle. It normally costs around £8 but I got it on promotion in Tesco for £5, I also bought the powder.
The foundation comes in a variety of shades. To choose your perfect shade you start by selecting your skin shade choosing from 100's which are fair, 200's which are medium and 300's which are dark. You then choose what undertone your skin has between yellow and pink. The shade finder will then recommend the shades which should suit you. I have fair skin and I tried a couple of shades in the shop and decided on 125 which is described as nude beige.
The foundation comes in a simple glass bottle with the shade number printed on the bottom. It has a black plastic lid which has the word FIT across it. The foundation is described by Maybelline as being gel based and containing no oil, no waxes and no fillers. The foundation also contains SPF 18 which is important for me as I like to protect my skin. The foundation states that it won't block pores but will offer even coverage while still allowing your skin to look natural and breathe. For best results you are recommended to apply with your fingers.
To use the foundation you simply dispense using the pump action nozzle and apply. I prefer to use a foundation brush as I find it gives better coverage than my fingers. The foundation when it comes out of the bottle is very gel like and has a different texture to other foundations I have tried. The colour is exactly as it looks in the bottle. As the foundation has a gel formula is glides effortlessly onto the skin. I have also found that I need to use a lot less than I would have used with other brands I have tried. One thing I did notice is the foundation has a lovely cooling effect on the skin. I also noticed that the texture felt slightly greasy which may not make it ideal for oily skin.
The foundation blends well and you can add more where you need it and it still blends in seemlessly. There is also no tell tale 'tide mark'. I would describe the foundation as medium coverage for me it covered my blemishes and also the red patches around my cheeks and nose without the need for any concealer. If you do need to use a concealer though the range has a matching concealer and powder to compliment the foundation. My skin also felt moisturised after use and I have dry skin with a slightly oily T Zone. The first time I used the foundation I didn't use the matching powder and I found that it lasted most of the day but it was a little 'dewy' looking on my nose. I then went out and purchased the powder to compliment the shade I had chosen, after applying my foundation I applied a layer of powder and this gave amazing staying power. I work long shifts and even after applying at 6am it is still in place at 6pm. For me a good test was looking in the mirror in the loo's in work as they have horrible white LED bulbs which if your wearing a bad foundation make you look cakey and made up, I found that this foundation looked natural without looking caked on, it wasn't too heavy or thick and didn't make me look like I was heavily made up which is something I hate.
I would definately buy this product again, it is reasonably priced and lasts for ages, I have had this about 3 months and I used it 4-5 times a week, I have only used a 1/4 of the bottle. I also find that for me it has amazing staying power. I recommended this to my friend who has extremelly greasy skin and she found it slid off after a few hours but since she has started using the powder too she finds the foundation lasts a lot longer and she doesn't get the shiny look.
I love this foundation and won't be going back to the more expensive Benefit and Mac products I have bought in the past.
5 out of 5 from me.
After searching around in my local Ulta for a new foundation, I saw Maybelline's Fit Me Liquid Foundation. Right off the bat I loved the wide variety of different colors they had. From the palest pale to all the ladies with a deep rich skin tone. So, it was very easy for me to find my perfect skin tone match.
Another aspect that really caught my eye was the packaging. I never really liked the packaging on other Maybelline foundations, they just seemed very cheap looking. Although, if I had to choose a foundation just by its packaging, this would definitely be my first pick. It has a very sleek and simple design, which it made look very high end and professional.
I love how the product just glides onto you're skin. It gives a very medium but natural coverage. Although, you could add layers on top to make it full coverage if you have a lot of redness. It covered up all the veins on the side of my nostrils, and all the discoloration around my mouth, chin, and nose. It was a breeze to cover up blackheads on my nose and cheek area too. And no matter how much I build the product on my skin, it still didnt cake and my skin could breath!
One thing I learned when using this product, is it just makes you look very greasy in just a couple of hours. I found my self using more and more powder to cover up the unattractive oiliness around my t-zone. Later, I found out that this is an oil based foundation, which is a big no-no for already very oily skin. By the end of the day I just looked like I had rubbed grease on my face. After, just a couple of days of use my face really started breaking out in these huge zits. So, I would definitely not recommend this for anyone who has already naturally oily skin since it will just clog up you're pores and make you break out. It also really bothered me that it didnt have a pump, so i had to pour out and sometimes that just gets really messy, especially when you're in a rush in the morning to get to work or school.
Overall, I hope Maybelline comes out with a Fit Me foundation for oily skin, because this product was just perfect in covering up all my imperfections.
Maybelline Fit Me Foundation is a Gel Foundation with no waxes and fillers / Coverage that looks and feels 100% you.
