How are you all hanging in there ? Yep, the month has ended again, just like that . I cant believe June is upon us , at this rate we will soon be exchanging Christmas greetings . I must say it’s been an eventful first half 🙂
I guess you know by now my obsession with foundation/ powder and makeup /beauty products in general. I am constantly trying and experimenting , looking for what will suit our skin tone, that is safe (wont cause breakout) ,works with our tropical weather and is affordable.
The Maybelline Fit Me poreless foundation has 24 shades in all but the most suitable for our skin tones are 8 shades – 322 Warm honey, 330 Tofee, 332 Golden caramel, 335 Classic Tan, 338 Spicy brown, 340 Cappuccino, 355 coconut, 360 Mocha
For those Familiar with Mary Kay foundation , I did a close comparison.
322 Warm Honey- Mary Kay 500( with a little beige undertone)
330 Tofee – Mary Kay 500
332 Golden Caramel -( for those in between Mary Kay 507 and 607)
335 Classic Tan – Mary Kay 507& 607
338 Spicy brown – Mary Kay 607/507
340 Cappuccino – Mary Kay 600 / 708
355 coconut -Mary Kay 607
360 Mocha- Mary Kay 607 /708
Unfortunately for me, the darkest shade (my shade )is not available. Mocha is the darkest shade , I hope they manufacture for dark skin soon,A shade that will match Maybelline cacao powder (With rich black undertone and not red)
Read My Verdict after the pictures.
I used Maybelline Fit me Matte Poreless foundation in Coconut on Iyanu
Its a liquid foundation that feels lightweight and has medium coverage
It sets relatively fast
Use with a primer and it wont oxidize( goes darker after a while)
It stays on decently well.
It gives a semi matte finish for those with super oily skin.
You do have to touch up during the day, just a little blot or something( especially under Nigeria Sun and heat)
It highlights dry patches if not properly blended or if you do not use a primer.
The packaging is a big turnoff, it is in a bottle which means it can break easily and doesn’t come with a pump .
The foundation is liquid and comes out very fast so it’s a mess and waste of product
It’s has always been a challenge to find a good foundation works with our tropical weather and skin tone. I got mine from a certified Maybelline distributor. It retails for N4200 or just give me a call.
Have you used this foundation before , kindly share your experience in the comment box
Till my next post,
love and kisses.
