Maybelline Fit Me Foundation Review

Does Maybelline's Fit Me Foundation Fit Us? Find Out.

I'm always on the lookout for a lightweight foundation that also gives good coverage — and if it happens to be reasonably priced, that's even better. Enter Maybelline's recently launched Fit Me line. The 18-shade foundation and powder collection (with six coordinating concealers) marks the brand's largest color range to date, spanning fair to dark skin tones. These oil-free formulas are numbered by intensity, which makes it easy to coordinate products. (For instance, I'm fair, so I wear shade 110 in foundation and concealer shade 10. Someone with caramel-toned skin might go for shade 350 and concealer shade 30.)

For our full review, keep reading.

The Fit Me foundation (SPF 18) and concealer duo is one of my favorite discoveries in some time. The foundation ($7.99) goes on smoothly and feels completely weightless on skin. Despite its light consistency, it provides medium coverage that looks natural. You don't look like you're wearing makeup; instead, it just seems like you have an even complexion. For blemishes and my under-eye area, I turn to the matching concealer ($6.49), which is pigmented enough to cover even the darkest circles. And not that this should matter, but the sleek, minimalistic packaging looks more expensive than it is.

The shade range is excellent, too. I have lighter skin, and our super editorial assistant Brittney has darker skin. Both of us found shades that match our skin perfectly. (Like me, Britt raves about how the foundation looks like skin and weighs nothing.) Total rave over here, especially if you're seeking that "no makeup, just perfect skin" look. And who isn't?

Anon96, if you love your concealer (which one? curious) then stick with it. Why not try the Fit Me foundation and then see how your existing concealer works with it? It can't hurt, and if you don't like the results, then you can consider buying the Fit Me concealer.

I ended up buying the concealer, powder and foundation and I have to say it is the most comfortable and natural looking makeup I have ever used, all fairly priced too (I think every product I bought was $6-$7 at Ulta). I bought 115 (Ulta had testers, but none of the 110 for some reason. In all foundations I'm always the second to lightest shade so I tested it out and it seemed to match pretty well, but I'm not sure if it's the lighting I'm in or not, but it seems to have more pink undertones, and I'm more neutral (my go to before this was L'Oreal true match in Neutral 2). I might try to test it out in different lighting to see if it's just the fact that most of the lighting around me has a yellow cast. Oh and oily skin wise, I have very oily skin and no matter what makeup I use I tend to get oily very fast. This didn't make my face feel or look like an oil slick when I put it on, but after a couple hours I did get shiny, but I'd blot some of the powder on and I was good to go, didn't cake at all or get gross like some other makeup/powders do. Sorry for the huge novel here but feared maybe the comment would help some of the gals on here if they weren't sure about this!

Anon 11, I have combination skin -- oily in my t-zone. I haven't had any problems with it looking shiny or anything like that. Definitely hasn't aggravated my acne. ktwa39, oh no! Sorry the powder didn't work well for you. I didn't try it (not really a powder girl) but I know talc can irritate some peoples' skin. But you'll find that in high-end makeup, too. Anon 7, if you try it, let me know what you think.

I got this in powder and it looked amazing, but I have very sensitive skin and I have a rash all over my face now... don't buy if you have sensitive skin that reacts to cheap drug store stuff. Otherwise it looked great!

As Annie mentioned in the post, I have darker, caramel-colored skin, but I've found that the products match pretty perfectly (I'm a 30 in the concealer, 350 in foundation, and 355 in pressed powder). I've never had such a spot-on color match with drugstore foundation, so I was really impressed with Maybelline on this one. I would definitely recommend it to darker-skinned ladies. If it fails, you're only out 7 or 8 bucks, and most drugstores have pretty good return policies with makeup nowadays. Give it a shot!

Surprisingly FIT ME! is a good FIT. Tested #355 on my hand and it blended perfectly. If I decide to buy, my preference is powder over liquid.

They probably have ones with yellow undertones. Most do :) I actually want to try this, too. I just usually break out when I buy cheap drug store foundations. I don't know why.

You would need a shade that is warm or neutral. Cool shades have more of a pink undertone to compliment cool skin tones. If you have yellow undertones, look for a shade labelled as warm or neutral.
