Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless Foundation – Review

Today I am going to be reviewing the Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless! wow that was a mouthful! Haha!! I have the Fit Me dewy foundation and it’s literally my go to foundation for everyday wear, I love it so when I saw that Maybelline released a matte version I wasn;t overly excited, I just think the packaging was putting me off, I like foundations with a pump but I ended up buying it anyway as I heard many good things so I thought, hey why not? 

So first things first the price, I actually purchased this while doing my weekly food shop! I always have a little nosey at the beauty products to see what’s on offer (that’s my way of allowing myself to buy something ha!), saying that, this foundation wasn’t actually on offer but I picked it up anyway and it cost £4 which is pretty cheap for a foundation considering you get a decent amount!

The packaging, as I have already said I don;t really like it, it can get messy and I don’t really know how much I use as it’s not like the normal, one pump or two pumps, with this it’s however much you take out? if that makes sense? Although this isn;t a major issue, but  I prefer a bottle with a pump!

I applied this using the Real Techniques sponge and I have used this with a Morphe blending brush, for those brush lovers I totally felt like it went on smoother with the brush! I actually prefer a brush with thicker foundations!

Th foundation colour was a good match although I am 125 in the Dewy foundation. I got 120 because my shade wasn’t there however, it was perfectly fine I guess with it going into Autumn/Winter months I can use lighter shades without looking out of place! The consistency is slightly thicker than the dewy foundation, but because it’s a matte foundation I was kind of expecting that.

It definitely had a matte finish it, but not the chalky type, it was a nice matte and left my skin looking smooth and my pores were gone, I have tried it with and without a primer, and both times there was not a huge difference! Without the primer, my larger pores were still slightly visible but with a primer, there was nothing my skin looked flawless I was very impressed!

Did it last?…Yes it lasted all day! obviously, it wasn’t as fresh as it looks in the morning but my makeup was still looking amazing at the end of the day I didn’t want to remove it. This is perfect for no makeup days, it doesn’t look cakey at all, I would say the coverage is light to medium but you can definitely build it to look more medium to full!

Lastly, I wanted to add that my makeup stayed matte throughout the day which was pretty amazing, my T-zone always gets oily within 2 hours!
