Another stuff that I bought for emergency because it turned out that I was running out of my VDL Metal Cushion Foundation (well yeah, that was one of the downside of the Metal Cushion, you couldn’t see how much foundation you have left, hence the reason why I forgot to bring a back up foundation, when I have so many in my vanity *sigh* ). Well, that being said, I’ve decided to buy this Maybelline Fit Me! Matte + Poreless Foundation because it was one of the safest option that I could found on that small city. Another reason is because I’ve been wanting to try this line for a while, but I always hold my self because, I still have lots of foundation to finish before they go past their expiration date.

If you follow me for a while, you must be wondering, why I choose the Matte + Poreless one since I have dry skin and always have the tendency to choose foundation with dewy finish. Well, at first, I really want to try the Dewy + Smooth one. However, since the day when I was picking up this foundation I knew that I will always work outdoor, under the sunny days, with approximately 30 ~ 40 degrees celcius, like, almost everyday, I think that, oh well, I just couldn’t afford to touch up my make up and blot my skin every seconds because I literally have lots of things to do. Plus, I notice that there are lots of beauty guru with dry skin weirdly enough love this foundation so much, Kathleenlights is one of them. So, I think that well, it might be safe enough for my dry skin?
I choose shade 120, which fit perfectly on me, and I found that this foundation is eeckingly similar in consistency and application to my Espoir Foundation EX. Weirdly enough, it’s not drying on my skin, I even found that the oil control is not really that the best either (well, due to the reason that I’ve never touch up whenever I wear this foundation, maybe the fault is on my part), but with just a few blotting with tissue paper, the oil will just gone, poof!
The thing that I quite amazed with this foundation is the fact that it has similar consistency to my mid-higher ends foundation, like Espoir and VDL. It feels like skin, never dry my skin out, and really easy to spread. Though I said that the oil control is not that good, the super humid and hot weather is one to blame, though, lol. And I personally never found matte foundation that would stay all day perfectly in Indonesia’s weather (literally all day, I wear this one from 7 am to 11 pm every single day). Even it claims to be matte, the finish is not dead matte, more like satin to soft matte finish, I think.
I have this conversation with my fellow beauty addict friend, and she told me that strangely, when she want to purchase Maybelline Fit Me! Foundation and want to check online review first; she found out that lots of dry skin people would prefer the Matte + Poreless one, while the oily skin girls prefer the Dewy + Smooth finish. And since she has oily skin, she bought the Dewy + Smooth finish, and it works perfectly on her! Well, I think the next time we meet, I would have to borrow her Dewy + Smooth one to make a proof on this theory, lol.
Well, overall, I think Maybelline Fit Me! Foundation Matte + Poreless is one of the best foundation in the drugstore. No wonder lots of people love it. It’s very very affordable, stay pretty much all day, and really reminds me with my more expensive Korean Foundation from VDL and Espoir. This foundation maybe have lack of oil control, but you just need to blot it tissue and voila! It looks as good as the first application again. Will I repurchase it in the future? Definitely!
