#9 Maybelline FIT me foundation review

FIT me foundation by Maybelline $8.79 at CVS pharmacy

If you take a look at my makeup collection there is one type of item that I do not have alot of.  I recently started using foundation (maybe 2 years ago) after going years and years without using any (not even once!).  I didn't know how to use it and I never really needed it because I've been very lucky to have a clear complexion.  Over the past 2 years I started using tinted moisturizers and foundations to help protect my skin from the sun, even out my skin tone and cover up small freckles.  I don't buy too much so I only have two other foundations besides the Fit Me one. 

I've been using this foundation for the past 3 weeks on the regular.  It can be found at local drugstores, Target, Walmart, etc.  I got mine at CVS in the shade 210 Sandy Beige (pictured above).  The FIT me foundation boasts a natural tone, seamless blending, and allows for skin to breath.  No marketing scams on this one! I agree with everything they say.  It was a little tricky trying to match my color at the drugstore without opening the product.  However, I am happy with the color I chose because it matches my skin tone really well.  It is easy to blend and doesn't dry up too fast so you have time to really blend it well and it definitely blends seamlessly.  In my opinion it offers a medium to full coverage depending on how much product you need to use.  The best part is that it doesn't look like you have foundation on!  It gives me a nice even skin tone and doesn't feel heavy or cakey.  It also leaves a slight dewiness which gives a nice glow. But if you don't like dewy then you can easily make it more matte by setting it with a powder (also available in the FIT me line) 

*Best thing about this line is that is doesn't just stop with foundation!  The FIT me line also has powder and concealer that match your color for the perfect shade and finish.  Check it out!*
