REVIEW: Maybelline FITme! Foundation

Monday, November 05, 2012

I recently went into Boots determined to find something so I could get the 3 for 2 offer! I didn't need a new foundation at all but I thought you can never have too many foundations:) So I picked up this one by Maybelline, part of the FITme! range. The aim of the range is to produce products that fit with your skin in order to create a flawless, yet natural base. And I have to say after a few weeks of using this, I am hooked.

The formula has a gel-like consistency and is very light, you can barely feel it on your face which is a strange yet lovely feeling because your skin still looks great! The coverage is medium I would say, its certainly got more than enough coverage for day to day and an evening look at the same time. And the best thing about this foundation is that it looks completely natural, it blends in really well (I use the RT Buffing Brush) and doesn't sit on the face. The finish is not matte but not too dewy at the same time, I thought that with my oily skin it would just make my face look shiny but with a little powder it lasts throughout the day. At the same time I think this foundation would also be good for dry skin because the formula is so light and certainly not drying on the face! Another great thing about this is it has SPF 18, and it doesn't seem to cause flashback either, and the colour range is pretty impressive for a drugstore brand, what more could you want. 
The packaging is really really nice for for a drugstore foundation, it comes in a glass bottle which feels really luxurious in your hands! Plus I may be completely off the mark in saying this but I think this may be a dupe for the famous Nars Sheer Glow foundation, I've only tested Nars Sheer Glow but in my opinion they are very very similar, even the packaging is almost identical!

I love this foundation and I think its a great little gem that will carry me through the Winter months!
