It made my face very oily and shiny if I had it on for longer than 3 hours. It also caused acne. Maybe it wouldn't have caused so much shine had i bothered to use a primer or mattifying powder, but I don't know what i could have done about the acne. If you don't have acne prone skin, then this will probably be a great product for you to use. Oh, and you CAN NOT apply with a sponge or it looks really realllly cakey. You have to use your fingers like the website says.
PROS: blend able (with fingers)
Not much coverage if you like that thing
Very dewy if you like that thing
CONS: Broke me out baddddd
Too Dewey for my taste
Not enough coverage for me
Couldn't find a good enough color
I really like how this foundation gave me a nice dewy finish with some glow to my skin. But I'm giving it a 3 because it accentuates my pores on my forehead. If you have really dry skin or really oily skin, it wouldn't be good to buy though.
i typically use Avon foundation because Covergirl and Revlon make me break out like none other! but once i was out of foundation and couldn't reorder for another two weeks, i had to find something! this was it! my T-zone is oily, but everywhere else is normal-dry. for me, this stuff was perfect! i was a bit skeptical, since it was a drug store foundation and they always make me break out, but i tried it out anway. i dont break out, and my skin is back to porcelain smooth(: im constantly complimented, and i find myself wearing less foundation and concealer because of this product. it covers imperfections perfectly,and doesnt settle into lines, and you can blend it in easily. i definitely recommend it!
I am a dedicated MAC Mineralize Satinfinish user. I got mini swatch-worthy samples in the November Glamour so I decided to use the $1 off coupon and give it a try. I've just worn it for one day but so far it's held up well. I break out really easily with low-quality makeup but this excellent! The application was easy and it blends into the skin well. I think I'll make this my new daily foundation and save the MAC for special occasions. My only complaint is the horrible bottle-n-cap system. How am I supposed to get a controlled amount of foundation out with that huge bottle opening? It's probably because I'm used to the pump system. Tip: Apply it with clean fingers instead of sponges or brushes as it will warm the foundation and help it set in better!
Even though I have oily skin, I actually don't mind this product. Yeah this product is not at all good for people with oily skin, but I love the way it blends into my face. Whenever I put it on, I get compliments on it, and it never feels like I'm wearing a foundation, which I LOVE! I like the smell of it also, but its not overwhelming, which is great. I actually don't know if I'll buy this again, but I don't hate it. If this didn't make my skin a little more oily, I would buy it in a heartbeat, but because it makes my oily skin even more oily, I don't know. As for now, I'm still going to keep using it, cause I really like it.
I should state that I am not a lover of full coverage makeup. To me, it always looks to masky, not matter what the price tag. I still have some of my Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick left, since my low key life had me only using it very lightly in the center of the face.Lately, it's just not doing what it did for me in my thirties. Gasp! Time for more coverage!
I asked my friend (a pro artist) what she kept in her box and what she used. She declared Fit Me her all time favorite. She was right on the money.
The coverage is medium but buildable if you use a good moisturizer. It glides on and leaves your skin feeling naked. It's SPF 18. It contains zero mineral oil and wax. It doesn't crease in my smile lines or worry lines on the forehead.
The color selection is broad. In the my area it costs a mere $8.99 and I feel like I am putting on a $40 dollar product. For the first time since companies were showering me with free foundation during my pro artist days, I look forward to wearing foundation. Crazy!
I did my Internet research on this product before buying it. It seems to be a hit with the dry, normal to dry, and combo skin crowd--especially if they're not *ahem* twenty five or under. (No offense to the younglings) Set it with a sheer powder and you're good to go!
Tip: buy this in a store where you can hold the bottle up to your face or the inside of your arm in natural light so you get the right shade. I got mine at Walgreens for that reason. Also if a color seems a touch off, don't fret. It's not masky. Though I bought the lightest shade, I think I could have worn the next step darker just as well.
This is not a very good foundation for skin that is oily or acne prone. This made me break out within a couple hours of wearing it. For dry skin it isn't even good. The dry patches on my cheeks did not absorb the foundation at all. It just looked very cakey and made my skin look like it was peeling. I got the colour 110. It went on pretty well for my pinkish, pale skin. But that was the only pro. I will not buy this again.
This is my second drugstore foundation. I first bought loreal true match in w6. Big waste of $$. It was way too powdery looking and it oxidized orange. Not to mention it separated into oily, patches. Yuck! This foundation however is opposite of that. It applies beautifully with a stippling brush. It leaves a healthy glow to the face. For me it's light -light/medium coverage, which I like. Not really buildable in my opinion. I've worn it for 7+ hours and it still looked great. I set it with my covergirl clean pressed powder for sensitive skin. My foundation in 315 soft honey matched my nc35-40 skin. The packaging is really nice compared to other drugstore foundations, a pump would be nice but I can live without it. The only con I can think of is the fragrance. It has this kind of powder scent. Like the purple johnsons baby powder. I can smell it after I apply it and it can be irritating if you're like me and hate scented cosmetics. The coverage is great for someone who wants a wash of even color and a healthy glow. I have almost faded acne scarring and redness and it covers pretty nicely. I have combo/dry and it works really well for me. I could see how it wouldn't be good for someone for oily skin. For me though, it's a keeper :)
Maybelline Fit Me Liquid Foundation (coconut) blends very well into my skin and the coverage is amazing- a little goes a long way, however I wouldn't purchase again only because I have oily skin and this foundation gives a dewy, shiny look which looks like I have makeup on. I definitely have to use a loose or pressed powder after applying to tone it down and every hour or so I continuously have to re-apply powder. The upside is I literally did not need to use a concealer before or after applying this foundation because it covers all blemishes and scars. For someone who has dry skin and want full coverage, this foundation would be perfect and I'll still recommend it to friends and family who's looking for full coverage. I prefer the Revlon Color Stay (Caramel- Oily/Combo Skin Formula).
Definitely an 'iffy' product for me, its good if you want to stay home all day, or run to the market. but all day coverage? forget about it. its a bit watery for my taste, and given i have an oily t-zone, it doesn't like to stay on my skin. it is a good makeup if you have dry skin though.
