Several weeks ago the Target website offered samples of the entire range of shades from Maybelline’s new Fit Me foundation line. I decided to take advantage of the deal and this morning I received the samples in the mail. The samples also included a $1 Maybelline coupon which I’ll save for another time 🙂
There’s only a tiny amount of product in each of the little shade samples, basically just enough to do a swatch each. I’m not complaining, but it’s definitely not enough to really test out the product and give an informed opinion. So, unfortunately, I won’t be able to review the product.
All I can do is show you swatches and tell you that the Fit Me foundation has an old-school beauty powder scent, kind of like the iconic scent of Coty loose face powder but to a lesser degree. Waaaaay less, actually. The scent of Coty powder is intense! The Fit Me foundation is scented but it’s not overpowering in my opinion.
For reference, I’m typically between an NC15 and an NC20 in the MAC shade range. I’m closer to NC15 in the winter, and closer to NC20 in the summer.
Swatch photos were taken indoors in natural light. No flash.
Sorry about the goosebumps 😛
I tried a little bit on my face and while 115 seems light/dark enough for me, it’s too pink. 110 is more yellow but a little too light and 120 is too dark. I could buy 110 and 115 (or 120) to mix together but I’d rather buy one foundation that matches me than buy two shades from Maybelline Fit Me to mix together to match me. Also, based on past experience, Maybelline foundations tend to oxidize and go pink/orange on me over time.
