Maybelline Fit Me Liquid Foundation Review

Hey everyone! So after a little bit of a blogging break, I'm back! Today I'm reviewing the Maybelline Fit Me Liquid Foundation! I recently hauled this in a post (which you can check out here) and in the comments of that post, a few of you said that you enjoy this foundation and I totally have to agree with you!

So I got this for around $8 at my CVS, but I'm sure that you can find it for cheaper if you get it on a good sale! My shade is 120 and it's a tad bit light, but it was the only one in my shade and undertone. There was a slightly darker one, but it was too pink for me. Overall, I love their shade selection, though, because they have some yellow, pink, and neutral undertoned foundations and it comes in a wide variety of shades. It has a slightly sweet smell. Nothing that you can smell when it's on your skin and coming from my last foundation (Covergirl Natureluxe) this scent is like nothing! 

So this is my bare skin without the foundation. The light is very flattering in this photo and masks my imperfections, but if you've seen any of my me without makeup posts, you know that I have lots of redness on my cheeks and acne scarring on my cheeks and nose. 

I found the best way for me to apply this foundation is with a brush. I use a paintbrush, funny enough, but it works really well and I might do a post on how I apply my foundation! Fingers work okay, but this is a sheer to medium foundation to start, so fingers might blend it out too much and make it too sheer. You can also build up this foundation, so I do a second coat over my problem areas. 

This is the finished look! So there is still some residual redness on my cheeks and my acne scarring is still visible, but it is much improved. The best thing about this foundation, in my opinion, is the finish! It looks dewy and gorgeous and it doesn't look like you're wearing foundation at all! If you have dry-normal skin, don't set it because it'll hold up okay throughout the day, but if you have oily or combo skin, maybe set it a little with some powder. 

Overall, this is a fantastic product! I have never tried a better foundation for everyday from the drugstore and I know this will be a holy grail! It's also super affordable (no $15 foundations!) and it looks so stunning on the skin. I totally recommend this! If you've tried it, let me know your thoughts on it in the comments!

  1. Great product and lovely review doll....thx a lot for sharing...will give it a try for sure...have a wonderful weekend dear..:-)

  2. I've never tried this foundation, the coverage looks really nice though. May have to give it a shot x

  3. It hasn't worked for me though, my skin is too oily and after only one hour I look like a disco ball. FYI I always apply a mattifying powder on top of my cream/liquid foundations.

  4. Yeah, I have normal to dry skin so it works better on me, but I could totally see it not working for someone with more oily skin! Thanks for sharing!
