Blinging Beauty Product Review: Maybelline Fit Me Foundation

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:

SPF 18

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
  • Non-comedogenic, dermatologist-tested

  • 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.
    The feel however was lovely, not at all heavy.  The coverage was medium and easily buildable. I love that Fit Me has an SPF of 18—I’m huge on SPF in my foundation.
    Should I try a 310, a shade lighter?  I don’t know.  Here is a model wearing that color—doesn’t look like me at all.  But all too often I find that this online color matching this is just plain off.
    So without having a perfect “Fit” in color, I can’t give this foundation a 5 bling review.  Yet.  I think I’m going to take it back and try it again.  So until I get a the right fit, Maybelline Fit Me gets 3 Blings.

    As a side note, I also bought the concealer, and it was dark too.  But good texture.
