Maybelline Fit Me Foundation Review

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation
I got this foundation from Fragrance Direct as I had been wanting to try it for ages. I got the shade 110 Porcelain, which I have found to be an almost perfect colour match.

Unfortunately this foundation does not have a pump, however if you buy it in Boots or Superdrug it does have a pump. I like foundations that have pumps as I find that it is easier and less messier to get the product out. 

This is what the Boots website says 'Flawless. Lets the real you come through. Beyond Matching: Fresh, Breathing, Natural Skin. SPF 18' 

I like foundation that is offers light coverage and I try to make sure that I get a foundation which has SPF in it. This has SPF 18 which is unusal as most foundations I own seem to only have SPF 15.

Now onto my thoughts of the product, as you can see from the swatches this foundation is very watery and without a pump it means I end up wasting a lot of product as I often pour too much out. When I first tried it I used my Real Techniques Buffing Brush which is what I use for all my foundation but I found that when I used it for this foundation it seemed to take ages to blend and it looked streaky once it had blended. After a couple more tries of using it with the brush I wrote it off as a bad foundation and put it back into my collection. It wasn't until I bought a makeup sponge from H&M that I thought I would try it again. The sponge is a dupe for the Beauty Blender but it is a fraction of the price at £1.99. When I used the sponge I instantly noticed a difference in the foundation, it blended easier and it didn't look streaky on my face. In fact my foundation looked flawless and I loved the way it looked on my skin. My experience shows that the tools used to apply foundation can make all the difference, a brush that is good for one foundation may not be the best for another. 

Have you tried?
