REVIEW: Maybelline Fit Me Foundation and Powder!

I'm sure many of you are already familiar with this new Fit Me line that Maybelline recently came out with. I've been wearing this foundation enough so i can give a full review based on my experience with these products. I purchased both the foundation and powder from Target for $6.99, which is a great price for a foundation and powder. They also have available concealer, blush and bronzer (which i REALLY want to try) for just under $6.
Fit Me Foundation in 220 
The shade that i picked up that look more yellow undertoned is 220 Natural Beige. Here's what it says on the bottle: 
  • Matches Natural Tone
  • Blends Seamlessly 
  • Let's Skin Breathe
First thing i noticed that i don't like is that it doesn't have a pump. I feel like it's such so messy when working with a bottled foundation. The foundation itself has a very soft creamy consistency which i love and it's very easy to blend and work with. It does have a smell, which doesn't really bother me. It's like a fresh baby powder sort of smell so i kind of like it. It didn't feel heavy on my face but me being oily skinned i noticed that it's extremely oily so i need to powder my face several times a day. I'm personally not a big fan of the dewy look from foundations, i'd rather apply highlight powders to get the glow that i want. Having a dewy look makes my skin look like very greasy and messy. The coverage is decent i really like it, except that it fades away quickly. If you have trouble skin and need full coverage i wouldn't recommend this foundation. As it fades you might end up looking blotchy and dirty. I don't think i would re-purchase this foundation just because of its oily feel on my face and the short lasting power. 

Fit Me Pressed Powder in 220 
I picked up the shade that matched the foundation in Natural Beige. 
I like how nice it combined with the foundation on the skin to help it set. What i really don't like is that it smudges onto clothes extremely easily and i don't like that. I tried applying a translucent powder over it and it just looked like a powdery mess on my face. It does leave my skin feeling and looking very soft but the fact that it transfers onto things really easy bugs me a lot. Even though it's the same shade as the foundation, it makes the foundation look a lot darker. So if you're a NC30 for example, the foundation will match you but with the powder you will look like NC35-NC37. I doubt i would wear the powder often. 

Overall Opinion:
Even though it's a great affordable foundation, i don't see myelf rushing to buy another one anytime soon. The fact that it doesn't last me all day doesn't sit very well with me. I don't have time to re-apply foundations all day so i need something that has a decent lasting power and won't look like a mess by the end of the day. My skin is somewhat sensitive and pretty oily so wearing the foundation every single day made me break out a little bit so i don't want to use it everyday or on bad skin days. I would recommend it for thos of you with dryer skin and don't need that full coverage like me. I will however give the blushes and bronzers a try because of the variety and how pretty they look. Ill keep you posted when i do. 

I will post a picture with me wearing it soon...
