After Maybelline baby lips candy wow and white super fresh compacts, Maybelline India has recently launched another range of colored and base makeup products- “Maybelline Fit Me” range. These products are already available worldwide and this is the first time they have been launched in India. The product category list includes foundation, concealer, blush and pressed powder. Though, as of now, the shade versatility in each category is not what it is at the global level but I assume that Maybelline will be launching more shades in India near future. In today’s review I will put forth my opinion on ‘Maybelline Fit Me Foundation Matte+Poreless In Shade Warm Nude 128’

My Take on ‘Maybelline Fit Me Foundation Matte+Poreless In Shade Warm Nude 128’
Maybelline Fit Me foundation comes in a rectangular glass packaging. The black cap bears the shade name and number, and is based on screw open mechanism. It is a see through bottle so allows keeping a watch on the amount of product left. Being made of glass, the bottle is slightly heavy but its compact size compensates for the heaviness and makes it fit easily in any corner of hand bag or vanity kit. Also, as it is a screw-open bottle so there are fewer chances of loosening the cap and spilling the product.
Fit Me ‘Matte and poreless’ range is for combination to oily skin type. It is available in 6 shades- Ivory, Medium Beige, Natural Buff, Sun Beige, Toast, Toffee, which is just 1/4th of the global shade range. A total of 24 pore refining shades are available in Fit Me Matte and Poreless foundation, and considering this wide range 6 shades for Indian market seem quite few. If there will be more additions in Indian range it will give the end users more liberty to choose the perfect shade that really fits their skin tones.
As there is no pump-dispenser so taking out the exact required product is tedious. I pour the foundation on the back of my hand and then use it bit by bit. Doing so with without a pump-dispenser is difficult as it oozes out more product which then leads to wastage. I do not like putting back the excess product for the fear of contamination. And sometimes, if the poured foundation is less than required I use an ear bud to take out more quantity. If a dispenser had been included, using this foundation would have been a lot more convenient.
It is a liquid foundation with water base, which is favorable for oily to combination skin. The texture is smooth and semi-runny, but in the absence of pump-dispenser you have to be carefully while pouring out the foundation. I have applied it both using a brush and with fingertips, and personally like applying it using fingertips. It blends easily giving an even skin tone without any superficial look. It does not only blends easily but settles fast as well, so you have to be quick in blending otherwise once it is settled you will not be able to blend without causing patches.
