For a number of reasons, I decided to change up my makeup routine, and that included the need to change and be on the lookout for new foundations that would work for my oily skin. I am someone that likes to stick to what works. I also wouldn't normally buy stuff without getting a review about it, which is what I did for MAYBELLINE FIT ME ,MATTE + PORELESS FOUNDATION.
CONSISTENCYIt has a runny/watery texture, I had to pour a little carefully on the back of my Palm, to avoid excess spillage.
When I applied to skin, I found out it was lightweight, it didn't feel like I had foundation on. I was impressed by this.
COVERAGEIt has a medium coverage, which can be built to a full coverage, it's best to use a concealer with it if you need an extra coverage for spots. I used a pump for all over my face and didn't use a concealer as I wanted to truly find out how well it could cover my scars.
FRAGRANCEIt has a scent, it is not overpowering just a mild smell that goes away after application.
PACKAGINGIt wasn't packaged in a box, it was sold off the shelf to me in a 30ml bottle. Which left me wondering if that's how they are being imported .
DID IT JUSTIFY IT'S CLAIMS ?
Upon application, it mattified/dried instantly, giving me a natural finish as it claimed. I moisturized only, and then did the powder before foundation technique, after which I applied the foundation and finished it off with the ZARON FACE PALLETE MATTIFYING POWDER.
It stayed on my skin for over 8 hours and I only blotted my face with a tissue as I was on the move. I also used my powder brush without applying powder, to brush off any seeping oil on my face.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE
- It oxidizes, it appears darker after it has set on the skin.
- It doesn't have a pump/applicator. Considering its texture, I hoped for a better applicator to help guage the amount of product to use.
It caters for normal to oily skin and I would recommend this Foundation paired with a primer for my fellow greasy dolls. If you have a dry skin, this may not be the best foundation as it mattifies, you may look patchy only if you pair with a hydrating primer and powder. This foundation is a good one for its price. It retails for 4500 Naira(depends on the store,prices may differ).
Till my next read !
