I needed a drugstore foundation and after spending about an hour (I had a lot of time on my hands lol) I decided on this one. The foundation isn't too runny and goes on just like any other liquid foundation. It does make my face feel like it can't breathe, and a little oily after sometime. shades 230 and 310 have seem to be the right shades for me, nc37.
I wanted to like FitMe. I really did. I tried the samples, I tried my friend's. But it just isn't very good as a foundation.
Let me explain. During my class' senior play, the director was in charge of cosmetics, and seeing Maybelline on sale, bought four shades of FitMe for our class, enough to match all of us and mix if we needed to. I matched the second lightest shade, 115, and I am a hair lighter than NW15 in MAC, leaning neutral. This foundation is slightly cool toned. If you are fair-skinned and have no olive or yellow tones in your skin, 115 is probably your color. It blended into my skin very well, but didn't set easily and took quite a bit of setting powder before it finally felt like it would stay on without sliding off. The formula does transfer easily. It's important not to rub your face and touch-up if you blow your nose, scratch an itch, etc. That irritated me, as being on-stage is nerve racking and the last thing you want to worry about is smudging your costume with makeup.
When I first put it on the coverage was medium, it resembled the finish of MUFE HD without accentuating my dry patches, and it covered more than MUFE HD. It was not sparkly at all like Revlon Photoready, and left my skin looking natural while covering redness and masking most blemishes so I needed very little concealer.
However, an hour later I went to touch up and noticed most of the coverage had faded, showing my acne and redness like I was hardly wearing foundation at all.
I'm glad I had the chance to try FitMe but I would never buy it with my own money. It's definitley not the right foundation if you have the least bit of oilyness. My skin is combination but mostly dry, and while I didn't find it to accentuate my dryness at all it wasn't extremely moisturizing either and seemed to sit on top of my skin until it just disappeared. It didn't accentuate pores, but didn't do much to cover them. It's a very do-nothing foundation.
That said maybe it would work if your skin was very dry, but the fading is the biggest issue.
for the first hour it looks really nice and dewy but after awhile it makes my skin really oily. the packaging isn't that great and its a real inconvenience to work with. overall, i wouldnt buy it again.
I've heard that this product works best for those with darker skin tones. However, I'm just the opposite, pale as heck. I applied this foundation with a wet cosmetic sponge and at first it did look flawless! I was so excited! But a couple hours later it sort of crumbled off, and what was left looked sort of cakey. The only good thing I have to say about this foundation, is that it gives decent coverage for skin without much to cover, but doesn't feel too thick and like you're wearing a mask. I would not buy this product again.
This was amazing for me! I have normal skin, not oily or acne prone, so I just needed something for under the eyes, since my schedule doesn't allow me much sleep... maybe four five hours on a good day. This was perfect! I apply it under the eyes and it lasts the entire day, not giving me breakouts or fading slowly! Only reason it didn't get the last lippie is because it looks slightly greasy if you use too much (on those all-nighter days, I HAVE to set it with powder, otherwise it's very oily looking). All in all, a good product, and the color selection is amazing for my light Indian tan... caramel is the one I got, slightly brighter than my skintone since it tends to run thin and that way the dark and light even out. This is a really good product, but don't get it if you have oily skin or are acne prone... I loved it!
Not atrocious, not fabulous. Just there being 'meh'.
I have really sensitive skin so I needed a product that could provide coverage for imperfections without clogging my pores and causing me to break out even more. I also have a VERY difficult time matching any products to my skin color because I have strong yellow undertones. I don't wear foundation/cover-up regularly(I use it to cover breakouts, cuts, mosquito bites, etc) so I wanted something inexpensive. Fit Me foundation provides lightweight even coverage that won't clog your pores.
Side note, I actually use the concealer much more and love it!
great foundation. it is buildable, and matches skin tones perfectly. i love it!!!! buy it! its not a waste of money. i am number 120. i have the foundation, pressed powder, and concealer. great stuff.
Love! I refuse to buy really expensive foundation, and I think I've finally found my match! I bought this at Target, for around $7. The shades tend to run light, so go a shade or two darker than you think you'll need. I have combination skin, so before putting this on I have to exfoliate and moisturize, so I don't flake. The only reason I gave this a 4 overall is because it makes my T-zone shiny. Because of this, I have to apply the FitMe powder, which is brilliant, btw. I end up with a smooth and natural looking face. This foundation covers all my bumps and blends and matches perfectly! I do wish it came in a pump, instead of a bottle, because it comes out really fast. A little goes a long way! :)
I thought that this was going to be a great foundation.
But surprise surprise. I was let down.
The colour selection was pretty good, and it seemed like it had a good concept to it. Have a good colour selection, be lightweight, cover flaws and don't cause breakouts.
Well one out of four doesn't cut it with me.
Colour selection was great. I got Classic Ivory (401 I think) and it matched me nicely. However that is where the good ends and the bad begins.
It was lightweight but too light. It was pretty much a tinted lotion. It went on and just sat there. It covered nothing and just blended into nothing. Great.
And of course like every other Maybelline foundation...It caused breakouts! Shocking. I know.
Thank goodness I got this on sale at Wal Mart and only paid $7CDN.
Maybelline I think it is time to get your s**t together.
