NEW FIT me! Matte & Poreless Foundation
As the Spring has arrived and Summer is only a month or so away, it’s been time for me to have a makeup bag sort out and put my beloved Winter foundation to one side. Okay more like use it up to make room for the new finds but we all do it don’t we…
So this month with the arrival of my first baby and most money being spent on baby items, I knew my luxury spends would need to take a back seat so I hit the high street to see what foundations I could try. I had seen the New Maybelline FIT me! foundation advertised on telly quite a lot recently so thought I’d give it a try and with 35 shades available (amazing) I knew I’d find the perfect match for my skin tone which I did, Shade 110.
Usually with foundations they always come up a little warm on my skin, especially if I don’t have any self tan on so to find a foundation to work with my winter skin is a fab feeling.
Right back to this foundation and how I am finding it. As it’s suitable for an oily skin type which to be honest mine isn’t, only occasionally around my nose I have found it possibly a little too matte but if that’s your preferred finish then you’ll love this product. I’m enjoying using it as it blends so well and is super lightweight on my skin and no need for powder on top so less on the skin, perfect for this warmer weather.
I have found the medium coverage is great for most of my skin but where I’ve got a few breakouts on my cheeks, I just need to apply a little more on those areas for a more full coverage and it’s great.
This foundation does last all day on my skin but may vary for each person. I’d definitely recommend using a primer underneath and on I use is either Charlotte Tilbury – Wonder Glow or MAC –Prep + Prime Skin as I still like a slightly dewy look to my skin.
The secret to this foundations is it features micro-powders to control shine and blur pores. If you have any concerns in either of these area’s you’ll love the finish you get. Don’t get me wrong, you won’t get a heavy finish but a natural lightweight finish with a great cover.
So, it’s time to update your makeup bag and go try out some fab high street brands and for the price of around £4.85 you seriously can’t go wrong. I’d love to hear your thought’s on this foundation and also which foundation you’re loving at the moment.
