As someone who is not exactly the shade of wall putty, I have struggled to find a foundation that matches me my entire life. With time I learned to give up and buy an expensive foundation that cost me an arm and a leg. Due to this when Maybelline came out with fit me the foundation I was beyond excited. It meant that I did not have to save up for an entire year just because I wanted a foundation in my shade because Maybelline is an affordable drugstore brand. The foundation has eighteen shades and it promises to fit all of us.

My skin type

I have a combination skin type and my skin is extremely oily around the t zone and I also have large pores and my skin is prone to clogging and breaking out. I stay out in the sun a lot which is why my complexion keeps switching and I have quite a few spots and I have pigmentation.

Maybelline Fit me foundation Shades

The Maybelline fit me foundation comes in eighteen shades. This is not the most inclusive shade range out there but it isn’t very limited either. The shade range is alright. I doubt that women with very dark skin will able to use it but if you are fair to medium dark this will suit you. This shade range is actually a huge improvement from the monstrosity that is Lakme’s shade range.

The eighteen shades are 115 IVORY, 230 NATURAL BUFF, 310 SUN BEIGE, 320 NATURAL TAN, 125 NUDE BEIGE, 130 BUFF BEIGE, 335 CLASSIC TAN , 338 SPICY BROWN, 330 TOFFEE, 128 WARM NUDE, 120 CLASSIC IVORY, 220 NATURAL BEIGE, 228 SOFT TAN, 235 PURE BEIGE, 238 RICH TAN, 332 GOLDEN CARAMEL.

They have certain fairly dark shades but nothing too revolutionary. If you have beautiful chocolate skin this probably would not fit you. I am in the shade spicy brown.

Maybelline Fit me foundation Price

A thirty Millilitre pack retails for Rs 525. Its shelf life is 30 months.

Packaging

The packaging of the product is very nice with a transparent, lightweight bottle and a screw cap. The bottle does not have any spatula or something of the sort to take the product out which can make the affair messy if you do not use your brain. You can use an old wooden ice-cream stick as a spatula. You can use the back of a plastic spoon etc. I just used the one from my Lakme foundation which had brilliant packaging but no shade range.

Consistency

The texture of the foundation is very light and runny. It dries quickly because of its matte formula. It blends like a dream and sets in place after a few minutes. One thing I hated was that this foundation has slight orange tint which makes you look funny. It can be balanced with cool undertones setting powder.

Apart from this the foundation is very lightweight and feels like nothing on the skin. It has a very matte finish on my skin and it looks like I’m almost wearing nothing. It blends well with everything, whether it be a beauty blender, fingers or brush. There is no streakiness in the product.

Coverage

Despite being lightweight the foundation has good coverage. It is medium to high in the coverage department. The foundation blurs out my spots in the first go itself and it completely hides them on the second coat. The foundation is good for people who want to cover their imperfections without a lot of product and are of yellow undertones.

Staying Power

This is where I have a problem with the product. The product has a really good staying power in winters when I am not getting oily and greasy. It stays up to seven to eight hours in such weather but during summers it’s a different story. My oily skin turns into an oil well and that is when this foundation fails despite everything, in just four to five hours. It, however, does not crease at all.

Final Word

Maybelline Fit me Foundation Review. The foundation has no added fragrance so if you are someone who reacts to fragrant products this is good for you. The foundation is possibly the best foundation for Indian skin tones under five hundred rupees. Even though it’s priced higher I’ve almost always gotten it for cheaper from a place or another at a discount. I am definitely going to repurchase this for my everyday makeup routine. The foundation is not cakey at all and it does not clog the pores either. It’s a great budget buy for everyone who wants a natural finish.
