I loved the finish on this, but after a few minutes my face began to itch. When I took it off a few minutes later, I had itchy bumps on my cheek. I don't have sensitive skin, and can wear most moisturizers and sunscreens without problems.

Fit Me! Matte doesn't irritate my skin and is fragrance free, but contains a small amount of alcohol, and is rated higher on Paula's Beautypedia (I guess she doesn't think the amount of alcohol is significant). I also don't love this one because I want a dewy finish.

Both have a very natural looking light coverage, which is what I'm looking for. Too bad they irritate my skin.

I love the Fit Me Matte, but the Dewy and Smooth broke my skin out so bad, and my skin is dry.

I picked up this product when my tan faded in the fall and could no longer use 120 in the Matte and Poreless line. One thing to keep in mind is that the M&P and H&S lines seem to have slightly different undertones, so while 110 in the M&P line did not match, the H&S 110 did.

I do like it as an alternative. Unfortunately since I have naturally oilier skin and acne prone skin, this foundation does not last very long without feeling a little greasy at the end of the day. I am sure someone who has dry skin would match well with this product.

I was initially in love with this foundation! I had been using the Fit Me Matte and poreless throughout the summer in order to combat some of the oiliness, sweatiness, and shine that I was dealing with in the hotter months, but switched to this foundation as the colder months came on and my skin was getting drier. Initially, I had great results with this foundation. It covered my redness really well and didn't sit strangely on my skin at all. It looked like my skin, but better! It was very comfortable and didn't seem like it moved around on my skin. It stayed in place with or without setting spray, and seemed like it was going to be the answer to my foundation woes.

However, the more that I used it and the drier my skin got as winter progressed, the more cakey this foundation looked. I tried using it with different primers and moisturizers, hoping that the issue was my skincare routine. After trying everything I could in the way of switching up my routine, I had to admit that it was the foundation that wasn't working for me. It's gotten to the point where you can see every single one of my pores with this foundation whenever I wear it, and I really can't wait to get through the end of it and move on to something different.

I'm not sure what ended up making this foundation stop working for me, but I definitely don't think I'll be repurchasing this for a couple of reasons. Firstly, either my skin didn't adjust well to it, or the formula isn't right for my skin. Secondly, Maybelline isn't a cruelty-free brand, and I'm much more interested in giving my money to companies who care about the impact they have on the world. This one is definitely a no from me, but I hope it works for others!

Like most Maybelline foundations I've tried, it's perfectly average on me. I have NC15 - NC20 (depending on the season) combination sensitive skin. To be fair I'm a bit biased against it because I prefer matte finishes but I'll do my best to leave that out of my score because it's my fault for buying the wrong type.

I wear shade 120 Classic Ivory which is warm toned (tip: Maybelline foundations ending in a 0 are usually warm, 5 are cool) and when I apply it it looks neutral-leaning-warm and fair on my face but it eventually darkens a few minutes later to be the correct yellow undertone but very slightly too dark. I'm pretty sure it's not a case of it oxidising because this happens so quickly even though I'm wearing mattifying powder and primer (either Urban Decay deslick or Elizabeth Arden Flawless Start) underneath it.

I disagree with the comments on it being light to medium coverage - when I apply this with my beauty blender it is a solid medium finish on me. I could easily build it up to full if I wanted. With other foundations I can use my BB to sheer it out by going over the same areas as it's drying but with this it makes no difference.

My boyfriend says that he really likes this foundation on me because it looks "really natural" and I agree, but that only lasts for the first hour for me. After that it feels too slippery on my face but I think that's because I prefer semi-matte.

I still get a small amount of transfer and a large amount of oil showing through despite using a lot of "sealing" products/methods. My make up layer goes in order: Urban Decay Deslick Spray OR Elizabeth Arden Flawless Start Finish OR Mecca To Save Face SPF30 - Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder - Maybelline Fit Me Foundation - Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder - blush/bronzer - Mac Fix + - Urban Decay Deslick Spray. This product has not (yet) broken me out but I've only been wearing it for a week and don't plan to wear it any longer.

It lasts a good amount of time, although that takes into account my other products. I get ~10 hours even after blotting twice with a paper tissue. It is hands down the best product I have EVER used for smoothing/minimising the appearance of pores (including various products and skin care that are aimed to do that specifically) and it never sinks into them. I get a slight amount rubbed off around my smile lines though, which leaves that dreaded grey line.

I would recommend this to anyone who loves dewy finishes and has very warm toned skin as Maybellines have a tendency of oxidising. I will not repurchase because I'm over spending money on foundations that "work" and and would rather use one that is "great" for my needs. Bit sad, because this foundation does look pretty amazing for the first hour.

At first I thought this foundation was quite good because I wasn't really much of an expert on foundations but recently, I came to a realization that this foundation isn't that good. This foundation oxidizes and tends to become a weird orangey color. I have this foundation in the shade 310 Sun Beige and it has a pinkish undertone which is absolutely not the undertone I need. Under some lighting it doesn't look too bad but under some lighting it really does look awful. I have a medium complexion with yellow undertones and I find it really hard to find a good foundation that matches my undertone at the drugstore. Thankfully, I finally found a foundation that matches me perfectly and that has the right yellow undertone for me. For all yellow undertoned girls like me I would highly recommend the Covergirl Tru Blend Foundation (I use the shade m4 - Sand Beige). Honestly, this foundation doesn't have that great of a coverage and isn't even that blendable and even though it's "dewy and smooth" it looks a bit cakey or not too great on the skin. But the biggest thing that turned me off about it was the color and undertone of it.

I've been on the hunt for a drugstore "dewy" foundation formula for sometime. I've tried Loreal Lumi and the Loreal Infallible Pro-Glow formula (absolutely LOVE the matte formulation in this line) and neither one worked for me. They were either too wet and never dried, slipped and moved all over my face, and the color was not a good match. Tried getting lighter shades and a darker shade to mix to get the color right and set with more translucent powder then I usually use and still a flop on my face. Decided to give this a try -I'm 125 Nude Beige - and I am loving it! The color match is pretty good, medium coverage that can be built to full, dries down yet still maintains that "dewy" finish and doesn't move on my skin. Definitely needs to be set with a powder in my opinion if you don't want to get oily during the day. I have combination skin and setting with more powder in my T-Zone keeps the shine at bay. Can't beat the pricetag either

Background: mid/late 20's skin, slight redness, dry-normal, large pores, unbelievable unconquerable sebacous filaments (they look like black heads, but stick OUT of your pores), pale, some wrinkles forming. Because of said filaments, I have been on the hunt for foundation FOREVER, trying all drugstore brands, and, Good Lord, BareMinerals (powder and liquid), Tarte, Make Up Forever, Benefit, Urban Decay, NARS, Lancome, Clinique, Estee Lauder... I've been through the wringer. Every single foundation has given me some textural issue where my face looks dry or powdery because the filaments stick out (even when I'm oily, it's awesome), or had some other issues. So yeah, I've tried a lot, and experienced a lot of results (have resorted to using BM powder, but it doesn't last or produce the coverage I want). That being said...

Everything about this foundation makes me want to hate it. I am neutral, pale, but have those redness issues, and bought Classic Ivory 120. The reviewers below are right when they say this formula oxidizes -- it does, immediately when applied to skin. But somehow when I blend it in, it lessens and matches my skin perfectly. Odd. Has a light-medium coverage, and is texturally reminiscent of a medium coverage BB cream, which I find extremely appealing.

As it sits on my face, it DOES cover my redness and minor issues, doesn't seem to settle into my fine wrinkles, but still does look and feel like I've applied makeup -- and nobody wants that. Again - something that seems like a strike. I had very little hopes at this point (and the same thing happens every morning...) UNTIL, and here's the key --

I brush on cheap mineral powder on top to set it. BOOM. Perfectly matches my skin color. "Makeup sitting on skin" look disappears. Any foundation streaks that I missed blending are instantly blended in and perfect. I have no idea how, but as soon as I've added powder, this foundation suddenly rivals all other major (and much pricier) foundation brands that I've tried.

And here's the kicker -- because it has a smoother, liquidy consistency, the textural issues on my face are MUCH reduced compared to the other brands -- but it still has buildable coverage. I was so impressed I almost pooped. But seriously.

C- on the packaging, though. I hate that I can't squeeze or pump it out (which honestly has never really bothered me in the past). The glass bottle means I'm dipping my fingers across the top, which probably isn't cool.

Nutshell: seriously surprising, especially considering I experienced a lot of what the negative reviewers on here did. Great buildable, medium coverage, very good texture/consistency once set with powder, does NOT get oily or slide off my face (or exacerbate dry spots because it's liquidy), and good staying powder (12+ hours) (although I confess, I do use a setting spray. Better than other foundations I've used though!). I do understand how color/oxidation can be an issue for people, and it definitely should have been for me with my neutral skin, but surprisingly, it blended in just fine. I really do honestly recommend trying it, I do like a lot. If you get the color right, I feel it's a LOT better than some of the pricier brands!!!!!

Guuuurl this oxidized on me like cray cray. They turn into a brown orange. I used shade 210 and within a few seconds I can start seeing it turn orange/brown on me . I have tried it with many primers with and without silicone and it just doesn't work well on my skin. I have also tried the matte and poreless one and shade 218 is the closest to my skin tone. That oxidized more on meI don't think I will repurchase this again.
