I've been pretty loyal Rimmel Wake Me Up for the last few bottles of foundation but when I saw this new range from Maybelline I of course bought it all. Firstly the packaging is lovely - it's super sleek and could easily be mistaken for high end NARS products. What I also loved about it is there was the most useful POS card next to it that made buying these products simple and stress free. I'm not sure about anyone else but I for one tend to stick to the same skin products just through finding a shade that suits my skin. I've gone through many bottles of foundation where under the harsh store lights it's looked perfect but in the cold light of day doesn't match my skin at all.
Next to the range (I bought mine in Tesco) was a card showing which shades suit - light, medium and dark skin. It was also broken down into whether you had a pink undertone or yellow undertone. This made picking out the right shades so easy and on swatching the tones that the card suggested meant I wasn't left with a hand of foundation unsure as to what any of the swatches actually were.
I'm currently laying off the fake tan so went for shades
Pressed Powder 120
I really like this foundation it glides on well and doesn't sit in any dry patches. It gives a very natural dewy finish without being overly glowy and matches my skin tone perfectly. It's quite runny in consistency but gives a really good medium coverage which can be built up to be pretty much full coverage. It lasts so well and I still have good coverage after a full day at work.
I'm not a huge powder fan but I wanted the whole range so gave this a go. I found that for a powder it sat well on my skin and was perfect for touch ups if I was heading out from work. It set my make-up well and when buffed in gave a really nice finish. I have quite dry skin so usually powders go patchy on my skin but this goes on pretty flawlessly and doesn't make my skin look cakey.
A lot thicker than the foundation in this range I really like the concealer, it covers any blemishes and also brightens my eyes really well too. It doesn't do anything revolutionary in my opinion but it is a very good concealer.
I'm really happy with this range and have been using it non-stop since I bought it. It suits my skin really well and looks lovely. I can't find it anywhere online but I have seen it in most supermarkets I got all of mine in Tesco.
Has anyone else tried the Maybelline Fit Me range?
