I couldn’t wait to try this new foundation out — Fit Me from Maybelline. I’ve been seeing the ads in every magazine I pick up, not to mention that it’s screaming at me to try it every time I walk down a drugstore cosmetics aisle. So I bought it. And the concealer too.
Here’s what Maybelline has to say about Fit Me:
FLAWLESS LETS THE REAL YOU COME THROUGH
BEYOND MATCHING: FRESH, BREATHING, NATURAL SKIN
It’s makeup that fits you.
- 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
Well, I chose color 320, Honey Beige which I wear in other Maybelline foundations, and it’s a decent match. Not perfect, but close. So I assumed that Fit Me would be spot on. But it was dark. And according to my makeup artist extraordinaire friend Patrick (former International Training Director for M.A.C—orangey. Boooo. I’m very disappointed.
