Maybelline Fit Me Shine-Free Foundation review, before and after photos

It's rare that the Constantine sisters find a foundation they both like.  Joanne has dry, sensitive skin and I have normal skin with an oily t-zone.  Maybelline Fit Me Shine Free Foundation fits us both, much to my surprise (and sadness because I've let Joanne keep the lighter of the two shades we were sent which matches us perfectly.)  Doesn't matter.  She owes me one now....


The Maybelline Fit Me Shine Free Foundation is a stick foundation, but fear not readers, for it is nowt like the Pan Stick foundations we used to use back in the day.  Ah good times.  Colouring your face in with a thick layer of foundation that made it look like you'd a mask on was so 1995....  But we're nearly twenty years (gulp) in the future and things have come a long way since then.  Who'd have known they'd have invented an Anti-Shine Core which has lightweight powders that dissolves excess oil?


All I know is that these look like little nipples and that will never change in my eyes.  Thankfully, these nips are ones you don't mind smearing all over your face on the train on the way to work.  The centre has the anti-shine core that is surrounded by the gel based foundation and they work together, giving you a creamy yet lightweight foundation.


Fit Me gives me a light to medium coverage and evens out my skin tone perfectly, giving a satin finish more than a matte one.  I like to draw shapes on my face and then using a buffing brush, I blend away until I'm left with lovely looking skin!


Now, in terms of longevity, I found that when I applied it over my normal moisturisers, the shine on my schnozz and forehead appeared mid morning, so not great on keeping shine at bay.  However when I used a mattifying moisturiser, or a primer, I was shine free for a good six hours.  And with a dusting of powder right after application, I get 8 hours of wear.


Yes I love it and yes I've been lashing it on like there's no tomorrow.  Yes, I'm going to miss it and yes, I sing Coldplay's "Fix You", changing the words to "Fit Me", every single time I apply this foundation.  I hope I've put it in your noggin now too.  €13.79 is the damage and it'll be in the usual spots in September.

  1. I really enjoyed this product, but honestly, the amount of product you get for £8.99 means I probably won't repurchase! Too much money for too little product! :( xx

  2. I've seen this advertised and was wondering. I may try it now as I'm quite oily. What's a buffing brush?

  9. This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I love seeing websites that understand the value of providing a quality resource for free. It?s the old what goes around comes around routine. Did you acquired lots of links and I see lots of trackbacks??
