Maybelline Fit Me! Skin-Fit Powder Foundation in Warm Nude
Bought for: P349
Bought from: Maybelline
I would start this blog by venting out because our internet connection isn't stable right now. I had to keep on reloading and relaunching my browser just because the connection is very bad. So here's me - admitting that my rest day won't be as productive as I would want.
Anyway, for today, I will be sharing my thoughts on a powder foundation that has been out in the market for quite some time but is still one of the newest products of Maybelline. I purchased Maybelline Fit Me! Skin-Fit Powder Foundation in Warm Nude a few months ago but never had the chance to use as I limit myself to using makeups. When I had the chance to do a play time, I decided to open this one up and I'm really surprised. I feel like I've found my go-to powder foundation!
Fit Me Powder foundation offers ultra-smooth poreless coverage that blurs pores on the face. It gives you the smoothest-looking skin with the smoothest powder.
Refined micro velvet powder fits perfectly to the skin's texture. No caking, lightweight and with SPF 32 PA+++. Available in 8 skin-fitting shades.
Shades available: Natural Beige, Porcelain, Classic Ivory, Warm Nude, Natural Buff, Pure Beige, Pure Beige, Sun Beige, Toffee.
Product comes in a black cardboard box which contains a few information about the product such the shade and the benefits. The powder itself is housed in a sleek, black compact packaging with a full-sized mirror. It honestly looks aesthetically pleasing but is not exactly like my ideal kind of packaging. It's not very sturdy in my opinion. It's the kind of plastic that would go easily useless after you accidentally drop it. Also, it can look dirty as it attracts dirt and fingerprints would show up.
This isn't a major issue for me as I make sure to properly store my makeups in a way that they won't be disturbed. Also, I don't bring them with me often so. Still, I'd prefer the square type compact powders because it takes lesser space and is more ergonomic.
The product comes with a mini sponge. I don't really like this type of sponges to apply powder foundations as I prefer buffer brushes. I still keep them though because you reuse them as disposable sponges when doing someone else's makeup. Spare sponges like this can be used for baking too or removing excess makeup. So there - don't just simply throw out sponges!
TEXTURE AND EASE OF APPLICATION
It's true - this powder has a very refined texture so it would fit you whether you have smooth or textured skin type. The powder pigments is super fine that it fills out the pores making it look poreless and smooth. At first, I thought it's probably a reformulation of the old Maybelline Matte+Poreless Powder but it's actually way different. This is probably 5x more lightweight and it offers a very sheer coverage. It's very easy to blend and it doesn't crease or move around and it doesn't disturb makeup underneath.
COVERAGE AND LONGEVITY
As I have mentioned, coverage is sheer but it's still able to blur the pores and imperfections making you look fresh all day. Powder stays for a good 4 hours on my skin before I become in need of a retouch. I have a very oily skin so 4 hours is already an achievement for me. This product oxidize very little so that's a good thing. Since coverage is not very good (and if you are after it), I would suggest to use a liquid foundation underneath and the good thing is, it works well with anything I put on. I've tried almost all of my liquid foundations in my stash together with this Skin-fit and I'm amazed at how it's able to mattify the skin and make my base look even more flawless.
If you are looking for a powder foundation that would give you a very natural finish, look no further. This powder will definitely give you that 'skin but better' finish. It would fill in the pores without going overboard. This is even perfect for the kind of weather we have here in the Philippines. I, myself, doesn't really need heavy makeup so this is my preference. It's non-sticky and non-irritating. This is perfect to use on a daily basis especially it has a decent amount of SPF. Despite that, it doesn't look like it's giving me much flashback on photos. Also, it doesn't look too flat matte so your skin's natural glow will still show up.
Since it has a total of only 8 shades, those who have darker skin tones won't be able to find their exact match. That's the only thing I find off-putting. And I think that's it. You can never go wrong with a powder foundation worth P349 which usually go on sale from time to time. Let me know what you think of this product by sharing your comment down below!
