Foundation bliss has a name for me and that name is Make Up For Ever’s HD Liquid Foundation in shade 153. While I’m firmly entrenched in this makeup staple, I’m still open to trying out different products, most recently Maybelline’s Fit Me Liquid Foundation in shade 235.
Maybelline’s Fit Me Foundation has been around for a few years, but it’s new to me and I’ve had my eyes on it for quite some time. This product is formulated without oils or waxes and is claimed to let your natural skin show through with the benefit of a translucent base and lightweight pigments that offer a light to medium finish.
Dear Mass Market Beauty Brands: Please stick a pump or other type of applicator on your products. Otherwise, they’re ridiculous to deal with. Thanks. Me.
After consulting Findation.com, I purchased shade 235, which is actually a great color match for my skin, which is impressive considering how much of a challenge it is to find that perfect color match at budget-friendly prices.
The finish results, however, leave much to be desired. Namely, the coverage, which is too lightweight for my needs these days. Also, this is not a match with my normal-to-oily skin, pulling a disappearing act after about 3 hours.
My Final Thoughts: While Maybelline Fit Me Liquid Foundation in shade 235 is a great color match for my skin, it’s just a little above average when it comes to wear. It’s nice, but by no means a bargain win in my book.
Availability: Mass market retailers such as Ulta, Walmart, Target, and Walgreens.
