This foundation...no. My skin gets very oily as the day goes on and this literally separates on my face. It makes me look a hot freakin' mess. Never again.
I was looking for a foundation that would give me a nice glow because I was so sick of my usual loreal true match I thought it looked too mate . So I purchased this , a couple weeks ago , first off I have a lot of acne scars on my cheek area and on my chin & I do have oily skin & they claim it's for normal to oily skin . I would have to say this is a light to medium coverage , defiantly not build able... I could still see my acne scars This does give off a glow finish if u don't set it with a powder. But I set it with some loose powder and by 7 hours it's shiny but not tooooo shiny . It feels very greasy after a while this does oxidize a little bit I'm defiantly going back to my loreal true match ✌️
I'd like to start off buy stating that I love many maybelline's products - 24 hr colour tattoos, falsies mascara, stiletto mascara, colossal mascara, gel liner, master precise, fit me concealer & powder. So it was a huge disappointment when I tried the fit me foundation and it broke me out.
I got the foundation, concealer and powder at the same time, so naturally, I got them all in the same shade - 225. The concealer blended into my skin perfectly, covering up my dark circles and spots and the powder worked a dream. The foundation, however, did not blend into my skin and looked unnatural on my skin as it was yellow and it felt like i was applying bio oil to my face. Regardless, I blended it into my hairline and down my neck. It did cover my spots which is probably the only good thing about it. At school, my friends could tell that I had something on my face and even my male teacher commented that I looked wierd and some random guy asked if I'd applied self tan. Curiously, I rushed to the bathroom and looked at the mirror at my shiny orange face!! It had obviously oxidised within the 3 hours that I had been wearing it and my combination skin means that I get oil on my T-zone but this was shiny EVERYWHERE and I had set it with the rimmel stay matte in translucent which normally does the trick. I looked like an oily oompa loompa. Ewwwwwww!!! My friend gave me face wipes and I removed it straight away and at home with my facewash, toner, cleanser routine that consists of garnier fresh essentials gel wash, simple kind to skin toner and biore combination skin balancing cleanser. The next day, I woke up to several more spots all over my face and an enormous one by the side of my mouth and another on my neck right above my collar bone. I threw it in the bin, not even considering to sell it to someone in my year for a bit of extra cash.
So all in all, NO I do not recommend this to anyone. Do not be tempted because it is only £7.99 and maybelline is a very good brand because it is terrible. Maybe if you have extremely dry skin this wouldn't be too bad but you still have to deal with the fact that it oxidises like crazy and the break outs that you would get.
this is my everyday foundation, it isn't the best but I like going for natural looks instead of looking like a clown. I have really dry skin and this works perfectly for dry skin. if you have oily skin, this is definitely not for you. I would probably buy this again because its the only foundation I've ever used and the only one that has had good reviews for a drugstore product.
Nope. If you have oily skin, STAY AWAY. Actually, if you have normal skin, maybe you should also stay away. This stuff is so greasy! It also starts disappearing after a couple hours. I decided to give this stuff a chance and used it for a month. Every day after a couple hours I would have to reapply. What's the point of buying a foundation that doesn't stay on? The only pro's were that the color matching was good, and it was cheap. Very cheap.
I like this product but it looks terrible when you try to use the brush. that's why you have you use your hands and it just gets a little messy. I think it's worth the money though.
its good for dry skin.normal skin would look glowing in it, oily skin may need blotting or powder. gives decent medium coverage
I bought this for 10.99 at Shoppers Drug Mart as I was out of my usual NARS sheer glow and I just didn't have the money to fork out on more. The product is thin and a little goes a very long way. I applied with a stippling brush and it covered my redness and discolouration around my eyes quite well. I set with Rommel stay matte and I am quite happy with the results. I will definitely repurchase in the future.
What can I say that hasn't already been said. This really does turn your face into an oil slick. It also gave me three new zits after wearing it one day. I thought I would try it because my skin has been so dry lately and at best, this wears similar to a tinted moisturizer. I bought it in the shade 120, but it was far too dark. I wouldn't buy this again but it may work for someone without sensitive skin that doesn't need a lot of coverage because the finish is dewy and decent but more than one layer of this stuff is way too greasy.
I like this foundation. It blends well and stays on for 7 hours which is nice. ( with powder of course) but it makes my skin very oily
