Review: Maybelline FitMe! Foundation

2012-03-12 15.01.47

See this bottle? A lot of people don’t like this bottle. Seriously, I have seen so many bad reviews about this foundation. But, honestly? I like it. . .

This is the bottle, front and back. I wear shade 120 classic ivory.

This is the advertising campaign, which I do think is accurate. This foundation line has a large range of colors for every skin tone.

When this foundation first came out, there were samples for it EVERYWHERE. There were pull-outs in magazines, Maybelline was sending out sample sheets, and in the end, I had 3 full sets of samples for every shade/color in the line. And nothing to do with them.
Which is partly what sparked this review. I was sitting there, with all of these samples FOR MONTHS, wondering, what on earth can I do with a s**t-ton of samples that aren’t even in my shade range. And then, when I started this blog, it hit me! Swatchers heaven:)

So, that is what I’m doing. But, just as a before and after shot, the picture above is what I started with.

This is what I ended with. Well, this and a Fry’s grocery bag filled with bits and pieces of trash.

So, swatches first, an actual review later: (NOTE: For all swatch pictures, the swatch on the left side of my hand is the actual swatch. The color is blended into my hand on the right side of my hand)

The bottle is a pour-top bottle, which I’m not a huge fan of, but whatever, at least it’s sanitary.

A lot of people have said that this doesn’t last all day and the pigmentation sucks and grrrrrr.

I agree with that to a point. For me, it lasts all day, except in the summertime because I live in Arizona and no makeup lasts all day. but, in order for it to last all day at all, I need an excellent face primer and a lot of makeup setting spray.

The pigmentation is good, and the foundation doesn’t smell weird, but it could be better.

There’s not really a whole not to talk about with this foundation that hasn’t been said before. This was mainly just a swatch post that I wanted to give you guys with a really mini review.

My rating? 3/5 stars.
