Maybelline Fit Me Foundation Review

I've never been an avid foundation wearer because  I can never get myself to wake up early enough to take the time to put on a full face of makeup. However, I do occasionally put on foundation and I stumbled upon a great foundation that works well with my skin tone. 

I have the Maybelline Fit Me Foundation in 120 and let me tell you: every single time I wear this, I ALWAYS get at least one compliment. It doesn't have to be necessarily about my skin but just that "I look good." Whether I'm wearing eye makeup and a nice outfit or rocking a natural face and a "rolled out of bed" outfit, I always receive a compliment if I wear this foundation! It's sort of ridiculous. 

I'm just going to put out there right now that if you have oily skin, this is not the foundation for you. It's quite dewy and definitely gives you this nice illuminating glow--which is awesome for my extremely dry skin--but may make those with oily skin look much oilier. This offers light-medium coverage but I can tell this foundation is very buildable. The product is blendable and covers up redness and evens out my skin tone but more product will cover up tiny blemishes. This foundation lasts throughout the day for me; however, once again, I have extremely dry skin and this product will most likely slip off rapidly on oily skin. I find my shade has quite a strong yellow undertone...perhaps it's just this shade but it suits my skin nicely. The packaging is also sleek for the incredibly cheap price ($5-$8 depending where you're from/what store). It also has SPF 18, which is always a plus. The product also strangely feels good on my skin, almost cool or hydrating if that makes sense. The only con I can say about this foundation is that I sometimes find the product transfers from my skin. For example, when I wear pullover sweaters, the foundation will get on the sweatshirt easily but I guess that applies to most foundations anyways.

I also might add that this product does occasionally give me a big-ish blemish. I don't have proof that it is from the foundation itself though.

Overall, I absolutely love this foundation and will gravitate toward it if I have a little extra time in the mornings--which is a rare occasion. Those with normal-dry skin (more on the drier end though) will probably like this foundation too.
