Another drugstore foundation find!
I am always on the hunt for a good drugstore foundation. You know, one you can wear day-to-day and save your expensive high end & good quality foundation for special occasions. I do tend to reach for my high end foundations more than my drugstore because I just haven’t been able to find that one drugstore foundation that just does it for me–until now.
Enter this beauty!
A little background– I have combination/oily skin. My t-zone does not like me and it becomes extremely shiny, even more so with certain foundations even though they say “oil free”. Then I found this. I saw it in a video that one of my many favorite YouTubers made and she has oily skin so I had to go out and buy some. GAH! So glad I did.
When I first try out a foundation, I don’t use a primer since I wan to see how the foundation holds up on it’s own. I do moisturize, like I always do. I am so impressed with how well this foundation held up. I did have to blot and re-powder about mid-day which was perfectly okay with me since I usually have to 3-4 times throughout an 8-10 hour makeup wearing day. The finish is truly matte but not over matte, well for me anyway. It was perfect. It did minimize the appearance of my pores which is always a plus! Since it did hold up so well for me, I did go and purchase the matte+poreless powder to go along with the foundation and I’ll tell you what! They truly are a match made in heaven! Using the matching powder to set my face with really kept me pretty much matte all day long. When a little oil did come through, it just looked luminous and like I was glowing from within. So so so impressed with the Maybelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless Foundation! If you have comb to oily skin, I highly suggest you try this foundation out and see how it works for you. If you do try it, leave me a comment and let me know how it worked.
