Maybelline has recently added a Loose Finishing Powder ($7.99) to their Fit Me! line. I haven’t come across this locally yet so I ordered mine off of Amazon. There are 8 different colors available.
The all plastic square packaging unscrews to reveal a sifter like top. There is no applicator brush, sponge or puff included with this powder, which doesn’t bother me at all.
I ordered the second lightest shade in the line, Fair Light. I was initially pretty nervous because in the packaging it looked quite dark to me with a hint of peach to it. But once it’s on the skin, it blends out much lighter than it looks in the packaging.
This Fit Me! loose powder offers a good amount of both pigmentation and added coverage. On one hand that is a good thing and on the other hand it can get a little cakey if you’re not careful.
If you go a little overboard with application, your skin can start to look dry and powdery, especially when used over a highly matte foundation. I’ve found that with this powder, less is more.
A light dusting is really all you really need. The ultra fine texture really does smooth out my skin nicely and leaves me with a matte finish, not necessarily “natural” as the package suggests.
I do find that this Fit Me! loose powder does help my makeup stay on a bit longer than usual. My nose still gets a bit shiny but not as much as it normally does and the rest of my makeup stays fresh all day.
Overall I’m really enjoying this Maybelline powder as long as I use it sparingly. It’s a great price, offers extra coverage and helps my makeup stay in place longer.
