Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless Review

Where to buy: Drugstores
How Much: $5.00-$7.00
Skin Type: Normal to Oily

Claims: Fit Me!® Matte + Poreless from Maybelline New York goes beyond skin tone matching to fit the unique texture issues of normal to oily skin for the ultimate natural skin fit.

While some foundations can exaggerate pores and oily skin, only our pore-minimizing foundation contains our genius blurring micro-powders that erase pores and absorb oil for a naturally matte and poreless-looking finish.

Reality: This foundation is everything. The finish is a satin - matte look. It glides on the skin smoothly. The foundation has a very light, airy feel. No cakeyness or heavy feeling when applied to your face. My favorite way to apply this foundation is first with a flat top kabuki brush to get the highest amount of coverage possible, then I go in with my beauty blender to really smooth and blend the foundation. I have combination skin. Normal around the outsides of my face, oily in the t-zone. This foundation kept my boils at bay. After 4 hours of wear I did not have to blot one bit! It was astonishing.

Overall: This foundation went well and above my expectations for a $5 dollar foundation. It definitely gets a 9/10 in my book!
