I bought this foundation b/c it's inexpensive and the lightest shade was a great match for my fair skin. I usually have a terrible time finding a foundation light enough for me, so I was initially really excited about this one. Unfortunately, it's terrible for me and my skin. My skin is generally slightly oily in the T-zone but this makeup made my entire face feel like an oil slick. The product felt like it sat right on top of my skin. Within a couple of hours, my face would be so oily I could wipe all the makeup right off with a tissue. It also made my face break out terribly. I couldn't figure out why my skin had suddenly been breaking out worse than it ever had in my entire life. Then I stopped using this makeup and my skin is 100% better. I wouldn't recommend this foundation if you have ANY skin problems whatsoever.
This seems to be a very love it or hate it kind of product. I personally love this foundation. I have quite good skin naturally, so most days I don't want something with a lot of coverage. This is lightweight, light coverage (but can be built up a tad), blends great with fingers or a brush, and has a very natural, slightly dewy finish. I find I do need to touch up with powder later on in the day, but that's also because it's been warmer out lately.
Natural looking and feeling
Fairly large shade range
Packaging (no pump of course)
If you're looking for medium-full coverage, this isn't it
I've been using this foundation since I started wearing makeup. I didn't have enough money to buy high end foundations so I thought I would give Maybelline's a try considering it's my favorite drugstore makeup brand. At the time I had first purchased it, it was winter and I had very dry skin. It was constantly peeling and BB creams, or cream foundations just made it worse. The Liquid Maybelline Foundation, however, worked very well with my dry skin at the time. It has sheer to medium coverage, but you can easily build up a few layers to get full coverage.
On the con side, now it's getting hot a humid because of it being late spring. I have oily skin during this time of year, and the foundation doesn't set very well. I usually go to school with a matte face, but come home being a shiny and streaky mess. Because of the oil buildup, I broke out really bad about a month ago and my skin was awful. I've now been using the Lo'real BB cream and it does the job quite nicely.
Good foundation for those starting out because of the price and color selection. Good for those with dry skin all year round, but be cautious if you have oily skin.
About Me Purchasing the Product:
Shade: 110 to 115
**Keep in mind that this is the first foundation I've tried. I never finished the bottle but ended up purchasing L'Oreal's true match foundation and was much more pleased. I saw a make up artist on youtube using Fit Me and I wanted to give it one last try. Unfortunately I was completely reminded of all the reasons I stopped using it in the first place.
Personally, I really hated this foundation. I bought the 110 (I am very pale) but it was just too white, and gave my dark circles a greyish look. So I tried the 115 but that was just too dark. There was a very obvious color contrast between my face and neck with the 115. I have combination skin, and this foundation just did not do me any justice with my oily T-zone. My skin was extremely shiny throughout the day. Also, this foundation just didn't sit right on my skin AT ALL, no matter how much I blended!! Overall, I was disappointed with the product and will not be repurchasing.
Wouldn't repurch because it makes my skin SUPER oily in less than two hours. Comes off by the end of the day. Great coverage but doesn't cut it. Price is great, very cheap. Didn't like the fact that it has no pump or anything. Overall it's a good foundation but doesn't last.
I initially fell in love with this foundation because of the nice coverage and healthy, natural glow. Unfortunately, after wearing it for a few hours my face got super shiny like an oil slick which caused me to breakout pretty severely. Might be good for dry skin only but even then I think it'd make anyone oily and that isn't a good look.
Like everyone else, I hate that this doesn't have a pump. This also has a faint smell to it. The consistency is light- very watery. I got the shade 230 for the summer, and it matches me pretty nicely. My only complaint is that it doesn't have good staying power. It like disappears from my face- I look almost sick and hav a red tint to my skin. It also makes me more shiny than usual. I like the coverage of maybellines dream liquid mousse- but they don't have my right shade, so I had to resign to this :( won't repurchase, but I will finish it off.
I hate this foundation! The shade looked good in the bottle. I got 115 and it came out too orange on me. I wish it was a pump instead of a pour out bottle. This foundation was entirely TOO heavy on my face. It felt as if I had a pounds of makeup on just with one application and it was greasy and cakey. Gross! It made me break out into horrible cystic acne and took me weeks to get rid of. I don't recommend anyone with acne prone skin like me to use this. I will never ever buy this again. There hasn't been one Maybelline foundation that I have liked. I hope they can step it up and make some really good ones.
I do not mind this foundation. I do use this when I don't have my cover girl foundation with me. The only thing I do not like about this is that it feels very heavy and wet after a while. At first, it does not feel heavy at all until after u set if with powder and everything else. Every so often I would have to blot a lot because it makes me so oily! No matter how much I am blotting, feels like its never enough. I would not repurchase this again because there are so much better foundations out there. This product is not for those with oily skin!!!!!
I have mixed feelings about this product.
My skin often gets oily when I work (I'm a waitress so I'm constantly hustling AND working between hot kitchens and cool dining rooms) and I can never find a good foundation that doesn't make my skin feel greasy or too dry after a good 5 hours of work.
While Fit Me foundation IS a tad dewy (reviewers have made it clear that this foundation has a hard time setting), I've used it for over a year now because:
1) It doesn't make me break out and let's my skin BREATHE
2) Fit Me was created to FIT. Meaning it's ultra running but SUPER blend-able with other foundations AND can create a more natural look
1) While some girls wear their foundations PERFECTLY and look airbrushed, this foundation will not do that. Just saying. It's more like a thick BB cream-look.
2) It does NOT cover blemishes well. I have combo-skin and sometimes break out, well, this just makes the blemish look a tad less dark. But still noticeable.
Sometimes I'll mix this foundation with other Fit Me shades in their line to create a different tone during different seasons (Summer I'm much tanner than winter) and it's great for gals that mix their colors!
Also, for women who wear creams under their makeup, this works well with them. I often mix this with The Body Shop's Nutriganics Smoothing Eye Cream and it mattes the foundation to hold and not smudge so much. Set with powder and viola! :D
It's very smooth and blends well with creams and other foundations!
