A flawless, solid base is the foundation of any stunning makeup look. There are days when my skin needs some extra coverage and glow – that’s when I found the Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless Foundation - Ivory 115 and I had to try it! Its packaging looked so inviting, and it was available in a whole bunch of shades. In this article, I’m going to review the Maybelline Fit Me Foundation in detail.
If you are a beginner to wearing foundation, don’t fret because it isn’t a terribly complicated makeup product to wear. In fact, Fit Me is the perfect option if you’re just starting out and need a foundation that’s easy to wear. It’s time for the verdict now – read on to find out how it fared in this review.
Fit Me Matte and Poreless from Maybelline New York is described as the ultimate natural skin fit that goes beyond skin tone matching to solve the unique texture issues of normal to oily skin. Some foundations can exaggerate pores and oily skin, but the Fit Me claims to contain genius blurring micro-powders that erase pores and absorb oil for a naturally matte and poreless-looking finish.

The texture of this foundation is smooth and creamy. It’s quite blend-able and blends easily into the skin. It’s consistency is neither too liquid nor too thick. It works well for me in one application and gives a very smooth and matte finish.
Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless Foundation comes in a clear glass bottle with a black screw cap. This bottle is quite light, does not feel very bulky and the cap is tight and secure, making it travel-friendly. Its shade name and number is mentioned on the sticker at the top of the cap. The only factor that bothered me with its packaging is that it comes without a pump dispenser. This makes it unhygienic and messy to get the product out and also leads to wastage of the product.
I bought this foundation in the shade ‘115 Ivory’ for my fair complexion. It was so easy to apply, and a little went a long way. I used my fingers to blend, and to my surprise, it applied very smoothly and evenly. I particularly suggest trying this technique if you are new to using foundation as it’s quick, simple, and it even looks great.
The Fit Me has a creamy soft texture, and its consistency is slightly runny. So, be careful not to get too much out of the bottle as this will only lead to wastage. It has an extremely faint fragrance that did not bother me one bit.
The coverage of this foundation is absolutely incredible – it’s buildable, so you can achieve a medium to high coverage according to what you prefer. It covers acne scars, blemishes, and dark spots beautifully! What I loved most about it is how lightweight it felt on my skin – it actually did not feel like I was even wearing foundation. I got so many compliments while wearing this foundation as my skin looked fabulously dewy.
If you have oily skin, you needn’t worry because this will be your holy grail. It mattifies your skin and makes it look super radiant. I was so thrilled because I did not have to constantly bother myself with touch-ups or even use a compact over this.
If you are someone with dry skin, you need to moisturize and hydrate your skin properly before going in with this foundation. However, even during the winter, when my skin was rather dry and dull, this was my go-to foundation, and it did not highlight my dry patches.
It’s also suitable for sensitive skin – it did not cause any acne or breakouts.
Coming to the staying power, it stays on until you actually take it off at the end of the day. I wore this to the beach, and it conveniently withstood water splashes, so this foundation is water-resistant to a certain extent. Also, what’s remarkable about the Fit Me foundation is that it somehow adapts itself on any skin type – so whether you have dry skin, oily skin, textured, porous or shiny skin, it just works perfectly.
