Hey everyone! Today im here with a review of the Maybelline 'fit me' range. I'll be reviewing the foundation, concealer and compact powder from the fit me line. Who does the Fit me range really target and is this range for you or not? Keep reading to find out!
Maybelline Fit Me Foundation In 120:
Starting with the packaging, its pretty convenient, its a clear glass bottle with a plastic cap and a plastic pump, though i've heard there are some versions out there without a pump??
Anyway coming to the product it self, it has a mild flowery scent, the formula is really liquidy, bit runny. The foundation in the bottle looks so dark, but doesnt come out as dark, so finding the right match might be a bit confusing. On application, this feels very light almost like a tinted moisturiser. Gives a really nice, natural dewy finish and a medium coverage which is buildable to some extent.
Now the staying power varies a lot! Oilies should steer clear of this, its not for u. Dry skinned people and combinations, this should work for u, and that too in winters. As much as i love the finish, the stay is not so good, I get shiny in about 3/4 hours in warmer seasons, but it gives a much better wear in winters and is actually very moisturising for dry skins. Use a primer and set it with a powder and it will last you 6/7 hours for sure, maybe longer for some people (winters again). I do not use a moisturiser under this, most people might not need to, but if you're very dry skinned, then you might need to.
This foundation is actually targeted for younger, smoother and not so problematic skins. People who just want to give their skin a little boost. The coverage is medium, you will definitely need a concealer if you have dark circles or problem areas.
And one MAJOR thing to mention, it does blend into your skin like a dream, like you have nothing on your skin.

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer In 15 (Fair) And 25 (Medium):
The concealers from the Fit me line are probably the best product they have in their line! They are in plastic tubes and have application wands attached to the caps. Again the scent is mild.
Coming to the product quality, they are great! Well pigmented and long staying. They cover redness and under eye dark circles VERY well. I usually have no use for a concealer excpet for dark circles and these are pretty much perfect for covering dark circles up.
I dot these on to the required areas and then pat with my ring finger to cover the desired area. I use the shade 25 for covering up the under eye area, and it looks very natural, not cakey at all neither ashy. And then i set it with a loose translucent powder, which is a must with any concealer you use otherwise it might settle into your fine lines under eyes. I tried using the shade 15 under my eyes too, but it looks too ashy, so i use it for highlighting and its great for that!
I,ll be doing an in depth review of this concealer soon, stay tuned!

Maybelline Fit me Pressed Powder In 130:
The pressed powder from the Fit me line is again targeted to people who are not looking for a heavy coverage, dry skins and the not so problematic skins.
The packaging is kinda bulky but perfect for travelling and on the go touch ups, with a huge mirror and a powder puff for application. I like it!
Coming to the product, it does NOT have any coverage really, it blends into a pearly light layer, its not heavy at all, does not appear cakey, the best use for this is to set your foundation. As my readers would know i am not much of a powder person and i hate a flat matte face. So i like this powder because it isnt heavy, has minimal coverage and sets your makeup with out making you look flat matte. I use it to set my makeup on my T-zone and also as a highlighter as you can see the powder is much lighter as compared to the foundation (again in winters). But the drawback, the only thing it has to do is set your makeup, and its not really long lasting at that and not much of oil control either :s. So yeah...

- Light coverage (its a con for most people i suppose)
- Poor stay time
- Poor oil control

- Not for oily skins
Conclusion And Ratings:
As much as i want to love the foundation and powder for the perfect dewy, natural finish, medium coverage, light weight feel and moisturising properties, the poor wear time is really a turn off :(
But the concealer rocks! its perfect ^_^
