Hi makeup junkies!
I didn’t need any foundation. I mean at all. But I just bought it… Why? What for?! Oh, these spontaneous purchases!
That’s how half of my makeup products appeared in my cosmetic bag actually. Well, the hell with it! Such purchases are very useful and great sometimes.
Recently I remembered reading some reviews about this foundation and they were negative. When purchasing I forgot about them, however. Nevertheless, I don’t regret I bought it, because this foundation is really good!
Maybelline New York Fit Me! Foundation
From the manufacturer
Want the perfect foundation fit? It's all about matching skin tone and texture. Mattifying liquid formula ideal for normal to oily skin.
The foundation comes in a plastic tube.
It has a screw cap.
It’s very convenient that the shade is written with big numbers on the front.
The number of the shade is indicated on the back too.
The nozzle was securely closed.
I noticed that the nozzle is so small that not every needle will come through it. I guess that the reason for that is that the product is very liquidy.

Shade, texture and smell
I have it in 110 Porcelain. Remember I said that this buy was spontaneous? Well, I purchased it even without a tester. As far as I understand, this shade is not for me
This shade is light and has rather a yellow than a pinkish undertone.
The foundation has a very liquid texture. It’s water-based and not oily. It’s no surprise, because the shade is meant for normal to oily skin.
It doesn’t have any smell.
My skin type
I have oily skin with occasional breakouts. I have acne spots on my cheeks, which are so annoying. Only thick foundations can cover them up.
Apply foundation onto skin and blend with fingertips or an applicator.
I remember girls complaining about the hard application of this foundation and that it’s visible on skin and sets into pores… Therefore I’ve decided to apply this product with a sponge from a cushion foundation.
Also, I’ve decided to mix this shade, which turned out to be too light for me, with a darker hue.
I bought the Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation in the shade No. 56 for this purpose.
What can I say? It is very convenient and the latter product comes in handy quite often.
I show you close-ups for you to see how this foundation applies to my skin.
Here, I can clearly see some peeling. There was a pimple and now a dry patch is left.
The foundation emphasized it. It’s something to consider if you have a good deal of dry patches on your face. This product will probably be not good for you.
I guess I added too little of the Bourjois foundation, because my face looks a little lighter than my neck, don’t you think?
In general, I love how this foundation looks on me.
My skin was totally matte and an oily sheen appeared only towards evening. It’s an awesome result for me!
What I used in my makeup:
covers up all blemishes
mattifies my skin
doesn’t clog my pores
the wear time is good
Outcome: I managed to adjust this shade to my skin tone, although it was still not right for me. Girls, I recommend you purchase your favorite and already tested foundation and add it to all the light products, for example, when it’s summertime.
I don’t know why I decided to apply this foundation with a cushion, but this way has worked really well and now I want to apply all of my foundations with this sponge
The coverage is thin and I’d call it silky.
This foundation is especially good for summer, as it mattifies well. More than that, it doesn’t dry out my skin. I can definitely say that I’m really pleased with the results. It does have some cons, but they are insignificant for me.
