THE BEAUTY CHRONICLE: MAYBELLINE 'FIT ME' FOUNDATION


Makeup that fits you




- Around two years ago on this very blog, I babbled on about a foundation that my aunt 
(who lives in America I might add) kindly gave me.
That very foundation was
Maybelline's 'Fit Me'
I can remember including it in a monthly favourites video and stating that I couldn't find it in
the UK anywhere.
Well, now I know why!

Since then more of us UK girlies have been wearing the Fit Me foundation as it is now
available in the UK.
*Hooray*

One thing that struck me about this foundation the first time around was the lightness of the product on my face, prior to trying it I had been wearing Bourjois' 'Healthy Mix' - which is also a light wearing foundation.
Fit Me felt even lighter.


My reason for picking up this new(old) foundation was simple.
I was getting a little tiresome of my current Collection 'Lasting Perfection'foundation as it is very thick and although it doesn't apply cakey, it is a very creamy and a very thick foundation to work with.
My poor MAC 130 was always clogged up to the nines with product.
I simply fancied a change and not only this but non of my foundations actually matched my skin tone anymore!
Since shunning the tan I needed something much paler in tone.

So why Maybelline's 'Fit Me'?
They say:

  • No oils, no waxes, no nonsense
  • Natural coverage that leaves skin the way it was meant to be…fresh, breathing, natural  
  • Exclusive translucent base and lightweight pigments allow skin's natural highs and lows to show through
  • Non-comedogenic, dermatologist-tested

I picked the foundation up for a reasonable £7.99 in Superdrug.
In light of my natural skintone I chose the shade '120 Classic Ivory' which is a part of the 'fair' tones.
It is a very smooth liquid foundation and applies lightly.
I found that it is a medium buildable coverage, I usually dispense a thumbnail amount of the product onto the back of my hand and apply generously.


I love the fact that our verison of this foundation includes a pump applicator as the US version does not.
The bottle feels quite luxurious as it a glass bottle with a glossy black lid.

You couldn't get away with just wearing this foundation alone (something I do love about the  Collection 'Lasting Perfection' foundation - you certianly need a concealer to blur out any sparse areas, dark circles or redness.

I love this foundation to wear everyday it feels very effortless and has caused my (usually) problematic skin no hiccups.

Have you ever tried this foundation?
What did you think?

  3. I use Avon's Ideal Flawless, which has a fantastic shade range, and is a medium to heavy coverage without feeling heavy..it last well, if you use an oil free moisturiser beneath it, as it is an oil free foundation.
