Maybelline Fit Me! Matte & Poreless is a new line of both liquid foundation and finishing powder for normal to oily skin. Both products come in a nice range of colors and I chose Natural Ivory in the liquid and Classic Ivory in the powder.
The foundation comes in a glass bottle but no pump on this one. The powder flips open to reveal both a mirror and a sponge applicator.
Matte seems to be all the rage these days and I couldn’t be happier since I have oily skin. I’ve tested this foundation by applying it with both a brush and my Beauty Blender sponge.
It gives my skin medium coverage and easily masks redness and trouble spots. It does have a fairly matte finish but not overly dry looking. It gives your skin a natural looking finish, even with a light dusting of the powder.
I do love that the powder is very finely milled and gives my skin a nice overall finish. It seems to blur out my fine lines and pores, but don’t apply too much.
The combination of this foundation with a medium to heavy application of the powder starts to look very dry and cakey. Ending with a finishing spray can help combat that though.
Sadly I had some oxidation and wear time issues with the Fit Me! Matte & Poreless. By the end of the day it was a bit on the orange side, which is not how it started off right after application.
Wear time was also a bummer for me. The foundation and powder combo doesn’t hold up on my oily t-zone very well at all. I still get pretty greasy looking at around the 5 hour mark.
I was really hoping to love this Maybelline matte line but it just doesn’t perform that great for me. I have much better luck with the L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation and highly recommend that one for my fellow greasy gals over this one.
