Maybelline (liquid) Fit Me Foundation Review

Wow it has been so long since I've written a review! Today's review will be on Maybelline's Fit Me Foundation (if you couldn't already tell!) I've been on a foundation "kick" lately and I never actually had any intentions of trying this until I decided to see what people were saying on makeupalley(.com).

Well, apparently a lot of people were really loving this, enough to go as far as saying this was their "holy grail" product, which of course, you know what that means!! I've been trying this out for over a week now using different techniques, and now I'm ready to share my thoughts/opinions with you!

(Lightest shade in 110 Porcelain)

The Packaging:

Maybelline's Fit Me Foundation is a liquid formula withen a glass bottle, that unfortunately does not include a pump. I wish everyone would just make the pump a habbit already. But none the less, a part from that, the packaging is pretty. Just remember, it is glass and it will break if you drop it!

The consistency of this formla is runny but not so bad that it's going to slight right off your hand. Be careful when pouring however for it does come out of the bottle a tad too fast. The rim alwaaays gets messy. If only there were a pump :/ 

This is what the foundation looks like spread out a bit. It definitely has shine to it and dries with shine. I have very oily skin myself, so right away I thought I wasn't going to like this. Yet, I bit my tongue and tried a few different ways of wearing it and so far my favorite is using a matte primer.

Using a matte primer helped to keep the shine at bay a bit but not completely. I felt this helped the foundation last longer on my skin throughout the day, without breaking down withen a few hours. After several hours though, my face started to feel pretty cakey as more shine was breaking through. Using a regular primer, I was an oily mess after just a couple of hours. 


Since the side view is so small, I provied a larger picture so you can see the difference better. The first picture is with no primer while the bottom picture is with the Rimmel Stay Matte Primer. The shine is still there but not nearly as much as it was. I highly recommend staying away from this one during the summet months.

My favorite tool to use for application is the beauty blender! (Now that I finally gave it a chance(; ) I can't say for brushes since I have not tried one yet, but I'm there is one that does a beautiful job.

My Overall Thoughts/Opinions

- I feel this foundation would be better suited for those with dry skin. Maybe combination as well.
- But you can definitely make this work if you use some kind of matte primer!
- It doesn't last very long and after a few hours it starts to feel really heavy and cakey.
- You have to be careful about touching your face because this does transfer very easily.
- It's inexpensive and has many shades to choose from!
- It matched my skin pretty good.
- I don't love this but I don't hate it either. I really haven't decided if I will repurchase or not.

Well that's it for today's review, I hope everyone has a fun and safe weekend!

Have you tried this foundation yet?
 Will you?


  1. Great review hillary! I've always kind of wanted to try this but always held back for some reason. I tried out the Loreal true match because everyone loved it and I didn't like it because I didn't think the coverage was good. Someone told me that this Maybelline was similar to that so that's why I haven't picked it up! I haven't had good luck with drugstore foudations other than Covergirl ones haha!

    1. I totally forgot to mention the coverage lol, It has medium coverage, you could build it but for me personally it felt too heavy on my skin. I really love that covergirl read set gorgoues though! There's definitely better choices then this one, I would say save your money!

  2. I hope all is well with you hillary!! I haven't heard from you in a long time!
