I received the new Maybelline Fit-Me Shine Foundation from Maybelline to test out and review. I was honestly a little hesitant at this one because I am not really a stick makeup sort of lady. I decided to try it anyway, so here are my thoughts.
First impression before application: The packaging appeals to me because it is sleek and will fit great in my purse. Visually it looks very thick, almost like a stick concealer. There is no obvious scent which is great for sensitive skin.
Thoughts after application: The product is much smoother than it looks. My skin didn’t have that heavy mask feeling you get when you wear some foundations. It feels very soft and velvety. I blended it with my fingers the first day. It turned out alright but a little uneven. The second day I blended it using my flat head buffing brush. It really made a huge difference. It created a perfect medium coverage and helped hide my pores and uneven skin. It dried to a powdery finish and left my face feeling very soft. I didn’t even have to wear a powder with it. I love finding a product that allows me to skip steps!
Thoughts after 8 hours: I am still not shiny after 8 hours which is amazing. I was outside in 100+ degree weather for over an hour and it didn’t get messy on me. It didn’t seem to settle into my pores and fine lines like most do. I have extremely sensitive skin and I haven’t had any problems with this product so far. The product didn’t melt in my purse in the heat either which means this is great for travel or on the go use.
Conclusion: Although this isn’t a full coverage foundation, it really had great staying power. It is also readily available and has a low price point. The color I chose was a tad too yellow on me but very close. I think these sticks would be perfect for foundation contouring. I would love to see more than 12 shades in the future. I would definitely recommend this product. Since then I have purchases another one that was a more perfect color match.
I received this product free of charge from Maybelline via MakeupTalk.com in exchange for my honest review. Please read my disclosure statement for more information.
