Over the past couple of weeks through my agency I have been representing Maybelline and promoting their top selling foundations, the SuperStay 24hr, the Dream Satin and the “Fit Me! Matte & Poreless” foundation.
I first came across this new product before my job with Maybelline after seeing Beautycrush’s (Samantha Maria) snapchat that she was trying it and I was instantly intrigued. A foundation thats £5.99 and has some of the best beauty bloggers in the industry using it?!
So I was super excited to have the chance to look through the entire range of the “Fit me! Matte & Poreless” foundation and I was pleasantly surprised at the shades! As a makeup artist its always nice to see a full range to suit every skin tone, from the very lightest to the darkest. The darkest shade “Espresso” is lovely, with the all important blue undertone rather than orange. The lightest shade (which I am) is nice and neutral, doesn’t make me look too pink or orange at all, perfect!
Its made for normal to oily skin, again which I have, and Ive found even after a long day of wearing it my face was only slightly shiny, whereas usually its like I’ve dipped my face in a bowl of highlighter!
And the fact that its only £5.99 is brilliant. Shall see how long the bottle lasts but at the moment I don’t need much at all for a great coverage on my face when applying with my Real Techniques sponge. I definitely prefer it to Maybelline’s Super Stay 24hr foundation as I find that that foundation didn’t suit my skin at all and that it smeared on my face and left me very oily, whereas this product left me totally matte and comfortable in my own skin!
