Hi Guys! Today I have a foundation review for you! I have been searching for this new Maybelline Fit Me Shine Free Foundation Stick, and I found it yesterday at Wal Mart. I was super excited to try this foundation, I figured that since it was in a stick, it would be easy to apply.
There were 10 shades to choose from, I picked the third lightest shade, 120. I was going to pick 115, but that shade leans more warm toned, and I usually wear cooler toned foundations.
This foundation was marked $6.94, but there was a $2 off peely coupon on it, so I only paid $4.94! What a deal. Now, the first thing I noticed when I opened it up was that they don’t give you much product. This is a picture of it rolled up all the way.
Now, onto the review. It has a layer of foundation on the outside, but on the inside it is supposed to be a core of some type of anti shine powder that will keep your face matte. I have dry skin, so I don’t ever get oily. If you have oily skin, I’m not sure that this would be a great foundation for you, because since it is a cream, it gives a dewy finish already.
I applied this foundation using a flat top stippling brush. I swiped the stick directly onto my skin in stripes, and blended it out with my brush. I was surprised at how easy this was to blend, and the color matched my skin perfect. I would say that it gives medium coverage, I only needed to use concealer under my eyes with this. I did not set this with a powder, because I thought it gave a nice finish. It lasted pretty much all day, I wore it for 9 hours.
Overall, this is a great foundation. I love how it is a stick, it’s easy to travel with, it’s not messy, and you can just toss it in your bag. It doesn’t offer full coverage though, so if you are a full coverage gal, or you tend to get oily, I would probably skip this one. For me, it worked good, and I will continue to use it!
Hope you guys enjoyed this review, and let my know if you try it!
Thanks for reading! 🙂
