Maybelline FIT ME Liquid Foundation

Product: Maybelline FIT ME Liquid Foundation 
Description as Stated on Website: No oils, no waxes, no nonsense. Natural coverage that leaves skin the way it was meant to be fresh, breathing, natural. Exclusive translucent base and lightweight pigments allow skin's natural highs and lows to show through.
Coverage: Sheer to Light. Could be close to Medium coverage if you really pack it on, but you will be wasting your product.
Long Lasting?: No

Price: $7.00 at Walmart

Shade: 210 Sandy Beige

My thoughts: I was really excited when I first heard about this foundation and all the hype, but I was disappointed. It is Light coverage at best. It doesn't really cover anything. This foundation is made for those who are blessed with near perfect skin...as in no acne, no post acne scaring. If you have an uneven skin tone, then yes, this foundation will do the trick and help even it out, otherwise, forget it. This reminds me of a tinted moisturizer.

I have never had good luck in terms of shade selection with Maybelline. Its either too dark, too light or too pink. They hardly make any foundations that have a yellow toned to it...much less yellow toned foundation for light skinned girls, like us NC25'ers :)

Furthermore, since my skin isnt perfect and the shade didn't match, I will not buy this again. Waste of money.
Compared to NC25: I got this in 210. It is slightly too light. The next shade up (220) is a little too dark. Wish they made 215 :) Then it would be perfect.

  2. Yea I was dissapointed too. Oh please, request maybelline all you want. I just wish they made more light skinned yellow toned foundations. Not everyone is PINK! Thank you for viewing.

  3. Here in Europe Maybelline´s mineral liquid foundation "Ivory" shade is rather yellow toned. It matches my skin tone (NC20-25).

    I would like to ask this blog owner a favor: would you be so kind to make a list of foundation swatches for NC25? . It would be so, so useful for us, followers to have a trustworthy list..
    I would be very happy to contribute, as surely as all the blog fans. Thank you. Sara

  5. Yes, that´s it! It would be great, because choosing the right colour of foundation can be so tricky..And it´s such a waste to buy the wrong colours.. We all have a box with our make-up mistakes.. for instance, last week I bought loreal´s lumi magic n3, and it was very close, but not a perfect match :( (perfect yellow but a little dark)...and so,the list would be very helpfull to avoid buying the wrong color of foundation. I will be happy to send a list of my (european) foundation swatches. I´m sure I´m not the only european follower :) Thank you. Sara

  7. Every time we encounter failure and disappointments in life, we run to our friends first rather than to our parents maybe because we are more confident to tell everything to them.Our parent can also be our friend, but sometimes we distance ourselves to them because of fear which should not be in our mindset.
