Maybelline Fit? Not so fit!

Maybelline Fit

Well, I have heard, and read lots of mixed reviews about this latest product from Maybelline. I refused to listen to bad stuff, so I went ahead and bought one for myself.
Since I have used and tried many concealers and foundations from department stores, and Sephora, I was a bit skeptical about drugstore foundations. THAT, I have to admit. Why? Because it has always been so hard for me to get a good match. It's either too light or too dark. Unfortunately. Besides that, the color is either too pinkish, or too orange. =/
Well, this Maybelline Fit's promises sound good to be true. I guess it works for most girls, but not for me. The reasons are:

  • It's too greasy for my skin. A bit runny, and does not provide good coverage. Or maybe I read it wrong? Is it supposed to be a tinted mosturizer kind of foundation? hmmmm.....
  • The color matched good at the beginning, but turned ashy on me. =/
  • It doesn't stay longer than an hour, max!
  • I need to layer with lots of powder foundation which defeats the purpose of having a foundation to begin with. A foundation on a foundation is gross! Too thick. I don't really like it, unless I do a party makeup.
  • It gives me red bumps and zits, especially on the T-zone area. Yikes!
Oh well. I just wish that these problems did not occur, you know. I don't want to have a bad skin, so I have to put this away. I think this formula is great for those who do not have a sensitive skin.

Well, there goes my review on Maybelline Fit foundation. Have you guys tried it? And is it working for you? Do tell!!

Wanted to try it out since I need a new foundation but I saw a few videos & the extra dewy appearance looked more like a sweaty look to me, so I stayed away from it especially since my T-zone gets oily.

Thanks for this review. I wanted to try this one out, but I have really sensitive skin too, so I think I better pass.

HAHAHA, FINALLY a review that speaks some truth. Not saying that everybody who tried this is lying about it, but I'm so sick of reading review after review with people loving it. It's MAYBELLINE. It can't be that freaking great >_<"

Great review Rinz, I normally love Maybelline and am waiting for this one to come out over here. Most reviews I have read havent been good, but I always like to try for myself :) xxx

Lol ladies if u guys would like to give it a try just for few days... Sure! As long as there is a return policy.. It was probably me that did not like the formula, but you guys might find it different.:)

I hate shopping for drugstore makeup too - I got really lucky with my Colorstay purchase. It's too bad FIT didn't work for you - I think I've read more negative reviews on this foundation than I have positive :/
