Maybelline Fit Me Foundation

I have a confession to make: I am a bit of a foundation whore. I know what one works for me yet I continue to be lured in by adverts and blogger/you tuber recommendations. The latest one to tempt me was Maybelline Fit Me foundation, mainly because of Tanya Burr (Pixi2woo on YouTube or her blog is

The thing I liked most about this was the fact that you can choose a foundation to match either a pink(cool) undertoned skin or a yellow(warm) undertoned skin. However this presented a problem: what undertone is my skin!? I've never been matched up at a makeup counter before and not having any formal makeup training I was a bit stumped but I read a few blogposts etc on how to determine this and long story short chose shade 125 shown above. I really wanted to like this foundation, especially since its less pricey than many others at £7.99 in Boots and Superdrug. It applied well but once on, it just sat on top of my skin. All day. Allllllll day. Even though I powdered to set, it stayed tacky to the touch, patches disappeared off of my face and to be honest I just looked a shiny mess, so I hope you will forgive the fact I haven't shown a pic with this on. I just don't get what the fuss is about, quite frankly in my opinion it's not worth the hype! My oily skin could be a major factor here with Fit Me just NOT fitting me. Maybe it works really well for dry skin. I don't know. What are your experiences with this product?

Thanks for reading, Love Steph xxxxx

  1. I've been wanting to try this foundation for so long! It was out in America for ages before coming to the UK!

    It's a shame it didn't work for you! :(
