Guide Review - Review of Maybelline Fit Me! Foundation

This foundation is better for dry skin types and if you prefer light, dewy coverage. It doesn't seem to work for combination/oily skin. Those with oily skin have found that the foundation is not long lasting or melt proof. These users have better luck with the foundation in cooler weather. Most users needed to use setting powder. The foundation is lightweight and therefore not meant for discolorations or to correct uneven skin tone.

One good thing about the Fit Me! product line is the Fit Finder number system which helps you match the products to your skin tone. First you are asked questions to help you determine whether you are light, medium or deep. A second question asks whether you have a warm or cool tone and then your shade is selected for you. I went online to find my shade and Caramel (350) matched my skin tone perfectly. This means that I would also use the pressed powder in Caramel. However, since the pressed powder in Coconut (the darkest shade) also blended well with my skin tone, this means that there are not enough shades for rich, dark skin. One consumer complaint on MakeupAlley was that when wearing the deepest shade she "ended up looking like a zombie corpse."

I found that the foundation blended well, however, when I used the pressed powder it made little bumps that I hadn't even noticed on my bare skin become very pronounced. Though combo/oily skin types said that the makeup wore off too quickly as the day progressed, I found that the foundation and the powder started to look better an hour or two after application.

Fit Me #355 fits just right, Member arainac

From one makeup Junkie to another Fit Me #355 is the perfect fit for me, no pun intended! No I am not getting compensated for my review although I hope to be in the future.. Who doesnít want free products? I do I do. What I like about Fit me? It actually does what it says, the coverage is phenomenal and itís very lightweight. I also use the Fit Me foundation to go with this occasionally, but on those days when I am rushing this fits the bill. I only hope that those women who match up their pressed powders incorrectly and then cake it on in hopes that they have achieved flawlessness(we all strive for this) find this powder. You really only have to be in the mere vicinity of you skin color to get this right. The case is compact and fits snuggly in any makeup bag or wristlet if you may. What I also love is that it washes off quite easily I only used a small amount of face wash and I was clean as a button. The variety of colors is also very important ,women and some men that use this come in all colors so when I first bought this product I was quite wary. I didnít want to spend another Sat morning in the return line at CVS because the color was two shades off and at the point of no return. So for the many shades of women out there you are bound to find a color that Fits you just right.
