Maybelline Fit Me! Matte & Poreless Powder Review
Hey guys! It's been a while since I've done a review on a Maybelline product isn't it? I was using the Dream Wonder powder to set my foundation, and then they came out with the Fit Me! Matte & Poreless Powder, and when I ran out of powder, this is the one I got to replace it.
A powder is a must for me for setting foundation. It's one of those staple products you gotta have. For my staples, I love it when I can use a drugstore product that is affordable like this one.
Lets get started with the review!
As you might remember, I am obsessed with the Fit Me! Matte & Poreless foundation (it's everything I've ever needed in a foundation!!). So when I was looking for a new powder I had to get the Matte & Poreless one to see what it was like. I am in shade 112 Natural Ivory in the foundation so I assumed I would be the same shade in the powder since it's the same collection. They don't have that shade though, they have 110 Porcelain and 120 Classic Ivory with nothing inbetween and the Classic Ivory was too dark. So I went with 110 Porcelain, which is actually the perfect match for my foundation so I'm really pleased about that.
There are 8 shades in total and they are mattifying and skin-tone matching.
This powder has a very smooth and silky texture. It's so soft on the skin! They are supposed to provide shine control for up to 12 hours. The coverage is buildable and I love it. This lasts on me all day. No touchups needed. It keeps my foundation in place and it doesn't get cakey. Because it is so pigmented and mattifying, you don't need much though. I don't put a lot on my brush. If you do use too much, then you might get cake-face! It is lightweight and a little goes a long way.
I like that this provides a little extra coverage. I love an airbrushed look and this gives a nice finish on top of my foundation.
The packaging is great and contains a little mirror and a sponge at the bottom. I haven't used the sponge because I just use my brush, but I'm sure it is the same as the other sponges I've used in Maybelline powders and I've always liked them. What always bothered me though was when they got dirty, they weren't exactly washable because they are not the most durable but they are great and do a good job if you don't have a brush handy.
Because this is pressed there is no fallout. I don't have any complaints about this powder. I mean I am not too fussy when it comes to powders, but this one is quite perfect for me and if you want to look matte, it's great for that. I love a powder that properly covers and controls shine and lasts all day. This does that for me and the main reason I use a powder is to set my foundation, and this does it beautifully! I am never shiny at the end of the day, my foundation doesn't break up, this just keeps everything there.
I love this powder and have nothing but good things to say about it. It's been said that it's just as good if not better than a lot of high end powders. If you love the Matte & Poreless foundation you will probably love the powder too. It's very natural looking and gives a beautiful soft matte finish. It does what I need it to do and it's awesome!
