REVIEW: Maybelline Matte & Poreless Fit Me Foundation

REVIEW: Maybelline Matte & Poreless Fit Me Foundation

The day I received the Maybelline Matte and Powerless Fit Me Foundation, I was in two minds... I am not a huge fan of drugstore foundations and so I wasn't sure what really to expect... Additionally, it was labelled as something for Normal to Oily skin and hence I concluded that it would not work on my dry skin.

However, I had been hearing such rave reviews about it that I was tempted to give it shot. The first time I applied the foundation I was surprised to see how well it adapted to my skin type and in no time made it look like I was not wearing any foundation at all... I was intrigued and I wore it every single for the next whole week... Needless to say I was hooked!

Price of Maybelline Matte & Powerless Fit Me Foundation

It costs INR 525/-


It comes in a very heavy and an impressive glass bottle with a screw on black coloured cap. It looks expensive and good quality and it really looks pretty... Of course, if the people at Maybelline had added a pump dispenser then the packaging would have been perfect... But well, the absence of it is not really a deal-breaker per se.

Texture & Coverage

Texture wise the Maybelline Matte & Powerless Fit Me Foundation is watery and yet provides medium coverage. I expected the foundation to be creamy but it isn't really... It applies evenly and blends very easily. It doesn't dry up immediately and hence is very easy to work with. I tried applying this foundation using both a beauty sponge as well as a stippling brush and I found using the stippling brush a better option.

Finish & Staying Power

The Maybelline Fit Me Foundation gives a smooth and a matte finish and since I have dry skin I did not even have to top it up with powder. And still it stayed on me for the whole evening that consisted of taking part in a fashion show and an hour of continuous dancing on some awesome music belted out by a DJ. The foundation did not budge and did not even make me greasy! It certainly is very impressive.
Another point to note here is that the foundation made my skin really smooth and flawless almost as if I had applied airbrush makeup :)

Will Maybelline Fit Me Foundation Suit Dry Skin?

I have dry skin and it suited me perfectly. Of course, I needed to apply a thick face cream underneath the foundation and I did not top it with powder.
My skin did not feel dry or stretched and the foundation did not accentuate any dry patches either.

Overall Rating:



I would whole-heartedly recommend this foundation. It is affordable, mattifying (perfect for the upcoming Summers) and gives a smooth finish. However, I did notice getting a few pimples and eruptions a couple of times when I applied this foundation.


  1. When I saw your post on Fb, I wanted to read the review.. I too have dry skin.. So I guess this one would work on my skin.. I am hearing a lot of good reviews about this one..

    1. I know right!!! I had a similar concern regarding dry skin... But I see that it works just fine with a heavy moisturiser underneath :) Plus don't apply powder over the foundation... Hope you like it as much as I did :)

  2. I got this one and have been loving it as well. By the way, did you experience oxidation?

    1. uh oh... I did not experience any oxidation ya, did you?

  3. Nice post. Please visit: for online shopping coupons.

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...

Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue

While doing the "Meet The Bloggers" feature every Saturday, I have realised (and I am sure that you all have too) that Faces is fast becoming a very popular brand amongst us especially the Faces Long Wear pencils. So much so that a lot of people prefer Faces Long Wear pencils to even Colorbar I-Glides and that ladies and gentlemen is quite a feat for a newly launched brand. So anyways, I got myself a "Navy Blue" from this range and I must say that I am very happy with it. This is my second pencil from Faces after "Turquoise Blue" and well it hasn't failed me either.
This particular shade is a beautiful deep blue that looks stunning on the eye lids.
