Thursday Thoughts – @maybelline Fit Me! Dewy + Smooth Foundation

I have been a long time fan of the @maybelline Fit Me! Matte + Poreless Foundation, so when my skin began changing from oily to normal/combination and my foundation desires switched from super matte to glowy, I jumped at the chance to try out its counterpart, the @maybelline Fit Me! Dewy + Smooth Foundation ($7.99 for 1 ounce at @ultabeauty – use this link to shop:

What it claims:

πŸ”˜ Dewy and smooth foundation with SPF 18

πŸ”˜ This hydrating foundation smoothes skin’s texture

πŸ”˜ Achieves a naturally luminous and radiant finish

πŸ”˜ Moisturizing foundation ideal for normal to dry skin

πŸ”˜ Dermatologist tested, allergy tested, non-comedogenic and fragrance-free

My experience:

πŸ‘πŸ» I purchased the shade 120 Classic Ivory and it’s almost a perfect match.

πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘ŽπŸ» It gives me medium coverage with one (1) layer. I was able to build it up slightly on the areas of my face I desire more, but be careful with how much additional product you apply because it can start to look heavy.

πŸ‘πŸ» Yesterday, I used it with the @pennyandpine T-Zone Mattifier and today I used it with the @tatcha Silk Canvas Protective Primer and it paired well with both.

πŸ‘πŸ» I wore the foundation for nearly sixteen (16) hours yesterday without blotting my t-zone (the only place I sometimes get oily) and I was so impressed with how it held up! I experienced no fading in any areas of my face.

πŸ‘πŸ» It didn’t sink into any of my fine lines.

πŸ‘ŽπŸ» Probably because I used too much product, but all day, it just looked a little makeup-y. You could definitely tell I was wearing foundation.

πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘ŽπŸ» Today, I went a little lighter in quantity used and I can tell it made a difference in how heavy it looked on my skin. However, I had to give up coverage to achieve a more natural look.

My verdict?

I am very happy to report that, for me, @maybelline has knocked it out of the park with both of their Fit Me! line foundations! If you have normal, dry or combination skin, desire a hydrated base without looking greasy, appreciate a good deal and are OK with medium coverage, I think you will love this, too!

What is your go-to drugstore/affordable foundation?
