A while ago, I mentioned that I was trying a bunch of drugstore foundations to review. It’s been an interesting experience because I’m just so used to ridiculously expensive foundations from Sephora, but I’ve found a few gems. One such gem is the Maybelline Fit Me! Matte + Poreless Foundation, which can be purchased from Target and similar stores for only $6.
Now, this foundation is not without its flaws, but I’m just stunned that something can perform so well and cost only $6! I was very impressed by the range of shades in this foundation line. They also have two different formulations. I purchased the Matte + Poreless one because I hate looking oily, but they also have a Dewy + Smooth formula if you’re someone who has drier skin or you just prefer a dewy finish.
There are two drawbacks to this foundation. First, it doesn’t last all day. I do find that about halfway through the work day, I feel like the foundation has pretty much completely faded away. Also, I find that I have to apply quite a bit of this foundation in order to get my desired look. But, still, it is only $6 so I don’t mind having to put on a few extra coats.
Overall, I do like this foundation. It blends very easily with the assistance of my damp beauty blender. It creates a medium-coverage, natural-looking finish. Also, it covers my acne pretty well, so I don’t need to use as much concealer afterwards. If you’re on a budget and you need a great foundation, I think this one is a pretty safe bet!
