Maybelline Fit Me Makeup Range | Foundation, Concealer & Powder

Maybelline Fit Me Makeup Range | Foundation, Concealer & Powder

It's been a long time since I talked about base makeup on my blog, usually when I find a foundation that I love I stick with it for a good while until it stops working its magic, then I look for something better. It was only by chance that I got to try out the Maybelline Fit Me foundation, thanks to my mum and since trying the foundation I've been doing the whole of my base makeup with the Maybelline Fit Me Range. I can't remember when I last used quite a few products on my face from the same brand, but I'm addicted to this range and I love the results so I thought it was about time I shared with you guys what I really think.

The thing that is key for me with this makeup is the fact that these products work best for people like me who have oily/combination skin. Oily skin is the worst and anyone else who has it will understand my trouble and the nightmares of getting any makeup to be long lasting. Unfortunately theres been too many occasion where I've gotten half way though my day, looked into a mirror and be horrified to see my face is a slippery shiny mess. The other trouble with oily skin is buying foundations that are so matte, they make my skin look really dull and cakey; It's so hard to find that right balance in foundation and I always want the best of both - My skin to look radiant and glowing, but for my face oils to stay hidden behind my makeup. All three base products from the Maybelline Fit Me Range, that's foundation, concealer and powder do give me the best of both and I really love how they make my skin look and they instantly give me that little confidence boost whenever I apply all three.

Foundation; I love this foundation so much that I've actually repurchased it twice and am now on my third bottle. As I said the Maybelline Fit Me Foundation is perfect for oily/combination skin types and I just love how this sits on my skin. I would say that this is a medium coverage foundation, but can easily be built up. What I love most about it is that this foundation gives my skin a little bit of a glow, without it looking shiny or greasy. I've always envied people who can wear dewy foundations and this one gives me skin a little bit of that dewy look, but its still long lasting at the same time, which is the best thing ever. It sits really comfortable on my skin and with a good setting spray (my favourite is the Urban Decay All Nighter - Review here), this will last on my skin all day.

Concealer; Before trying any of the Fit Me Range, I  heard so much talk and hype about this concealer from Maybelline. Apparently its supposed to be a good dupe of the Nars Creamy concealer; Its something that I've always wanted to try, but could never justify spending that much on it. I think the secret about this concealer being a very close dupe to Nars is out, because I found this really difficult to get hold of. Every time I popped into my local Boots or Superdrug, it was always sold out, so much so that there weren't any testers on show. I finally got lucky after a good few weeks of hunting and its honestly one of my new favourite things; I wished I had stocked up while Superdrug had loads in stock. The thing I love most about this concealer is how brightening it is and its perfect for under eye circles. I have so many sleepless and long nights with Archie, so this has been the perfect cover up. The concealer is really creamy and blends out so well with my beauty blender. I personally wouldn't use this to cover up any spots or blemishes as its quite light weight, but for under my eyes its perfect.

Powder; For years the only powder I've used has been my trusty Stay Matte from Rimmel, but I thought it was time to change things up a bit. I decided to try the Fit Me one from Maybelline because I've been so impressed with the foundation and concealer, so thought why not try another product in the range? I tell you, this powder did not disappoint. One thing I've noticed I'm struggling more with as I get older is larger pores. I think its just a thing that comes with oily skin, they are much more notable and it sucks that they seem to be getting bigger. Don't get me wrong, my primer and foundation do a great job at minimising them, but I can still clearly see them. However this powder does an amazing job at buffing them away. As soon as I work the powder into my skin (my cheeks especially) my pores are significantly reduced, so much so that I have to look close up to the mirror to actually see them. I've never tried a powder before that works so well on my pores and for this reason its become my new go to. It also does a great job at fixing my makeup and doesn't take away any of that dullness that the foundation has given my skin, so it gets a huge thumbs up from me. I also love the packaging of this one.

I think Maybelline have made an amazing range here and I'm someone who used to use Maybelline all the time when I first started wearing makeup, so its nice to go back to a brand where my love for makeup all started from.

Have you tried anything from the Fit Me range? Whats your favourite base makeup?

  1. Their fit me concealer is my favourite and only thing to be honest I like from maybelline. I love how light it is specially when I don't have much to cover to start with, but I've covered pimples with this. I've heard so many things about their stuff in the line as well just, have the heart to try them out I may try the powder. Also I feel you on the stalk in stores on these products, either they have them or they have nothing and your are grasping at nothing there.

  3. I love the powder too, it is one of my drugstore go-to. Sadly, even the lightest shade of the concealer is too dark for me, but the formula is amazing indeed.
