Beauty Bit- My Love/Hate Relationship With Maybelline Fit Me Shine Free Foundation

Maybelline Fit Me Shine Free Foundation

So I finally bought the Maybelline Fit Me Shine Free Foundation and it had more pros than cons, but the cons were very problematic. I love the this foundation usually retails between $6.94 and $8.99. That means that it is really affordable. I also love that it has a medium to full buildable coverage. The white shine stick in the middle actually mattifies my face without making it look ashy. The two shades I bought were Cappucino and the darker Coconut. I used one to highlight and the other to contour.

The best part of the Maybelline Fit Me Shine Free Foundation is that it looks so natural on my face. You can’t even tell that I have makeup on. I put primer on the second time around because I couldn’t tell if the makeup was straying off my face because it looked so much like my skin.

The worst part of this foundation is that it broke my face out so bad. I mean my face just erupted with acne. I am still trying to get my face back together and I only wore this foundation 3 or 4 times. That is not a good look. Since this foundation is so cheap, I would try it for a few days and see if you like it. I would still be wearing it if it hadn’t broken my face out.

  1. Oh no! I liked the Fit Me original foundation, so was interested in trying this shine free version. I wonder if the formula is different because I had no issues with the original foundation.

    I had this issue with True Match. I hear they’ve improved the formula but I can never go back after it broke me out.
