Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation Review

I received the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless foundation courtesy of Influenster for review. I was really happy to get this since I had been wanting to try this specific foundation out. 

I love Influenster but they first sent me a shade that was way to dark for my complexion in 335 Classic Tan. This apparently happened to a lot of people they sent the product to so they sent everyone out an email the second time around with a shade chart to choose a color that best matched. 

I had a feeling the lightest shade in the options still wouldn't be a great match but I was hopeful. Unfortunately I was right and the second shade I received didn't match. This time around I received 222 True Beige and this was too pink for my skin tone. 

Swatches L to R - 335 Classic Tan,  222 True Beige, and 128 Warm Nude.

I wanted to give a fair review so I just went and purchased a shade at Target that I thought would better match me. I purchased the shade 128 Warm Nude. 

As you can see in the swatches above Warm Nude is much more yellow compared to True Beige. 

Warm Nude is a great match for me. I was happy that I could finally give a fair review! 

First off the packaging is just a regular glass bottle. I do prefer my foundation to come with a pump for sanitary purposes but it's not that big of a deal.

I would say this foundation is a light to medium coverage. If you want more of a medium coverage you have to apply a second layer. 

I usually prefer a more full coverage foundation that I can apply one layer and get the instant coverage I want. With full coverage foundations I also like that I can always sheer them out if I need to with a moisturizer.

So because I had to apply a second layer of the Maybelline Fit Me foundation I found the second layer to start to look cakey, especially around the nose and forehead area. I went in and buffed it out with a damp beauty blender to reduce the cakeness look and it did help.

The next time I wore it I applied one layer and just concealed the redness on my cheeks where I need more coverage. I liked it much more the second time since I didn't look so cakey.

The foundation sets nicely and doesn't feel tacky but I still set it with a powder to really lock it in. 

The foundation wore really well throughout the day. I did get a little shiny on my forehead and around my nose but I wasn't a grease ball by any means lol! I do have oily skin and the foundation never broke down or separated which is great!   

I have worn this numerous times already and I really like it. Most of my foundations are full coverage so I'm actually happy that this ended up having a lighter coverage. 

If you have oily skin and are looking for a lighter coverage foundation I would definitely check this out. 

Another huge plus is this foundation is so affordable! It was only $5 at Target! It's also easily accessible at any drugstore near you!
