Maybelline India launched the Fit Me! Matte + Poreless Foundation along with the concealer, compact and blushes from the same range earlier this year. I’ve been testing out the products since the past few days and here are my initial thoughts on the products. You can buy these online at Amazon.in.
It comes in a square glass bottle which looks nice and classy but a pump would have a good choice. The formula is slightly on the thicker side but blends beautifully into the skin. It gives medium coverage which is buildable but not quite full coverage. It has a soft, natural looking satin finish (not dry matte) and it seems to soften the look of pores and imperfections. It wears well for 9-10 hours with at least one necessary powder blot required halfway through the day. It doesn’t have great oil control but doesn’t make the skin greasy either. I find the shine on the T-zone quite controllable through the day. I love how it gives a natural yet very even and flawless look to the skin. The only downside is that is oxidises a bit after 4-5 hours of wear. Available in 6 shades (in India), I like to mix the 2 medium shades 230 Natural Buff and 310 Sun Beige to get my perfect shade.
Maybelline Fit Me! Concealer (Rs 500)
It comes in a tube packaging with a wand applicator – great for touch-ups and for using on-the-go. The consistency is neither too runny nor too thick. It seems mildly hydrating and is very easy to blend. The coverage is about medium and the finish is very skin-like. It does get a little into the lines (like all concealers) but doesn’t get patchy or caked up in the delicate under eye area. Won’t give full cover to heavy dark circles but a good pick for daily wear. Available in 3 shades (in India), I wear the deepest shade available – Medium.
Maybelline Fit Me! Powder (Rs 475)
Its a satiny powder containing ultra fine shimmer that adds a soft matte look to the skin. The presence of shimmer adds a satin finish to the skin without drawing attention to pores. The powder doesn’t offer great oil control and keeps my T-zone matte for about 2.5 hours or so. Not something I would recommend for very oily skin. I do like using it in the winters when my skin is more combination and less oily. Ideally best suited for normal to dry skin.
Overall, I’m loving the foundation and it works beautifully on my combination skin. The concealer is great too though I wish they had launched more shades in India to cater to all skin tones. I’m wearing the following products in the look below –
