So the Fit Me! series has been a in drugstore hauls of various beauty bloggers around the world and for the most part, it has got glowing reviews. So when the Fit Me! range came to India, I really wanted to give it a whirl. I did go around shopping a couple of times but didn’t have the time to try the product and get my shade. Anyhoo, I made time for it this Saturday and got around to the Maybelline counter at Shoppers Stop.
Before I review the product, can I please briefly rant about the women at the counters? Most of these women are rude and uninterested and almost always annoyingly pushy. When you ask to see a product, some seem so uninterested, it makes you not want to buy from that brand- which sucks because these are the people who could really sway you. Also, some of them are really unhygienic- smelly, unclean nails- and that’s not saying good things about the brand. Phew. *rant over*
So, the Maybelline Fit Me range has foundations, compact powders and concealers, blushes and more but that’s all I saw on that day. They were out of concealers on the day I went there and this seems to be a common problem- they run out of products in this range. Maybelline, if you are listening, stock up yo.
Anyway, here’s the review.
Maybelline Fit Me! Foundation in Sun Beige (310)
Feel: The product comes in a glass bottle with a black cap. You’ve to pour out the product but I don’t think it’s that big a deal. Most people do prefer a pump though. The feels lightweight and it’s perfectly liquid-y. By which I mean it doesn’t sit there like a lump but also doesn’t run off your hand, so I like the feel a lot.
Fragrance: So this is really weird but this smells like, erm, mascara? Yes. Like mascara. That’s weird but okay as long as it does the job.
Price: Rs. 525 for 30ml
Verdict: I am sold on this product. I’ve said this before and at the sake of sounding repetitive, I have decently clear skin and hate packing on products I don’t need. This foundation works like magic. It’s almost weightless, feels extremely silky and gives medium coverage. At the price point it comes at, it’s a steal. They’ve about 6 shades, I think and they do have corresponding concealers but the shade number is different. I would strongly recommend this one for sturdy, everyday use.
Plus, it is matte and it does make pores look smaller so it delivers on its promise which is super.
Update: I now have Youtube! Here’s the review in video.
