Review: Maybelline Fit Me! Matte + Poreless Foundation

Hi guys!

Today I’ve got a review for y’all on the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation. Ever since I heard that they were coming out with a matte version of the Fit Me! I was soo excited and BUMMED out that it wouldn’t be released in Australia until later. But the time has finally come now and us Aussies have access to it! Anyway on to my review.

First Impression Review: Maybelline Dream Wonder Fluid-Touch Foundation

Hi guys,

So today I’m doing my first ever first impression review and it’s going to be on the Maybelline Dream Wonder Fluid-Touch Foundation (what a mouth full!). I love mostly all of Maybelline’s products that I’ve tried so I was eager to give this a go.

The product claims:

The fluid touch formula with skin fusion pigments is lightweight and blends with your skin, yet so concentrated it coverscompletely. The exclusive dropper precisely delivers each precious drop for a finish that’s impeccable yet undetectable.

Did You Know Makeup & Skincare Expires?

Hi guys!

I thought I’d make a post on this as I didn’t know about it until recently, and that is that makeup does in fact expire! There’s a quick an easy way to tell when your makeup expires and it’s by looking at the back of your product – it should have a small jar with 6M, 12M, 24M, etc on the back of it – this means the product expires from 6 months, 12 months, 24 months, etc after you open it.

This foundation needs to be used thrown out after 12 months.

I did some research on the typical expiry dates on makeup in case your product doesn’t have this symbol as it was on the packaging that you threw out.

Priceline 40% Off Haul

Hi guys,

So I’ve got a quick haul for you all! Priceline emailed me saying that all cosmetics is 40% off for two days – who can resist that! Today I headed over and bought a few things, hehe.

First I picked up these provocalips which means I have got 6 now – I haven’t had a chance to go out and wear them in public (but I did wear it in my house and it lasted forever, ahaha ๐Ÿ˜‰ ), so I’ve definitely got a review for these coming up in the next two weeks, especially because I know some of you have been asking for one. I had to buy these while on sale because they’re normally $18 and I got them for about $11 each, which is a huge bargain if you ask me.

Colours from top to bottom: Skinny Dipping, I’ll Call You, Dare to Pink and Make Your Move.

These baby lips have had so much hype and great things said about them, so I went ahead and finally bought one. I’ve got sensitive lips so I didn’t want to buy too many just in case they reacted badly. These were originally $4 and I got them for about $2.30. They also smell AMAZING, like actual mango!

Maybelline Baby Lips in ‘Mango Pie’

I needed a new, high quality gel liner so I picked up the maybelline one – I read some reviews on this and it seemed pretty good, so I will try it out. I really hope it doesn’t budge or smudge, haha, and will definitely do a review on this. This was originally $17 and I got it for about $10.

Maybelline Gel Liner in ‘Blackest Black’.

Now funny story, I spent like 50 minutes in the store trying to decide what shade I wore in these foundations -_- I hate how I am so indecisive! I have heard great reviews and raves about the following two foundations so I really wanted to try them out for my combo/oily skin.

I got the Covergirl Outlast 3 in 1 foundation in the darkest colour which I was unsure about, but the shade under it was a bit too light, so I took a gamble and picked up the darkest one. It was orginally $20 and I got it for about $12.

Covergirl Outlast 3 in 1 Foundation in ‘Golden Tan’.

Lastly, I got the much loved Revlon Colourstay Foundation in soft beige, which is the third lightest colour. I realise that this is such a big contrast to my covergirl one, but yeah… It does match, but I do look a little paler which can be fixed by bronzer. I bought this shade because the medium ones had a more pink tone which doesn’t match me at all as I’m sort of olivey. This one is normally $35 and I got it for about $21.

I also wanted to purchase the ‘Stay Matte’ primer by Rimmel and the Maybelline ‘Fit Me’ concealer but they didn’t have any in stock, however I got the main items I wanted so I am soo happy!

Hope you guys enjoyed this quick post & I apologise for the lack of posts recently but I have exams currently (ugh ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ). Let me know what you’ve recently bought or if you went to priceline too!

Review: Maybelline Fit Me Foundation (Fit Me! Dewy & Smooth Foundation)

Hellooo guys.

I’ve got a quick review for you all on the Maybelline Fit Me Foundation (I wear the shade 210). Also I’ve realised they’ve released a new fit me foundation – the matte and poreless one! I definitely want to go and try that one out, have any of you tried it yet?

Price: $18.95

Packaging: I love the packaging of this foundation. I like that it is simple, chic and made of glass. The cap is very secure and will not fall off if you carry it in your bag. The only con for the packaging is that it does not come with a pump, which makes the usage and distribution more difficult (you may pour out too much, etc).

Pros:

The consistency of the foundation is very smooth and applies easily with either a brush or fingers. The coverage is exceptional for a drug store foundation, it can cover all my acne scars and acne to an extent. Another pro is that the foundation comes in a lot of different shades which suits many skin tones (mine matches almost perfectly!). When applied the foundation does not appear as cakey, but if not set with a powder it is very shiny – I set mine with the Fit Me powder and it looks near flawless.

Cons:

It lasts an average length of time, does wear off during the day and it does get oily after a few hours (although this can be fixed by oil blotting sheets). As stated above, if the foundation is not set with a powder, it appears very shiny and unnatural. The foundation also feels a little heavy on the face, compared to my Covergirl one, but this is acceptable for the coverage it gives. The greatest con for me, however, is that it does not come with a pump. This is not a friendly foundation for oily skin.

Recommend?

I would recommend this foundation to anyone (unless you have oily skin). It is probably one of the best drug store foundations out there and provides great coverage. It is easy to apply and definitely suitable for special occasions or everyday wear.

Rate: 3/5


What are your thoughts on this foundation? Also leave down below any other good drug store foundations because I’d love to try out some more! ๐Ÿ™‚

PS. I’m pretty sure I’m like the last person on earth to do a review on this product, hahaha!
