I bought this at a Price of AED 61 from Mushrif Mall - Lulu
Maybelline Fit Me Foundation claims to give a Natural, Light to medium coverage that leaves skin the way it was meant to be. Fresh, breathing, flawless
I have oily skin. The lady at the counter told me this suits oily skin and will stay matte.
She tried and finalized that my Shade was 315.
Well, the shade was perfect for my skin and next day I applied it to office. It did not give much coverage but I like the finishing it gave. So I went ahead and bought it!
But only when I started using it did I start regretting. It just wouldn't dry on my skin. I powdered it and thought it would eventually dry but no. I felt like it was melting off my face and I had to constantly blot my face. One hour passed and it still felt all heavy. I went to the washroom to investigate. My face looked worn out and oily. I tried applying more powder but it just made my skin look all caked up. Finally I just decided to wash it off! I wanted to murder the lady at the counter, I had specifically asked her if it would suit oily skin. I should have researched more online than believe her blindly. Either she was desperately trying to get sales or had no idea about the products she was selling.
|To give you an idea about it's coverage, I applied this on my hand where I had done henna. You can see it doesn't provide much coverage and has a shiny finishing.|
The price is much lesser than high end brands but still, money is money. And I was just so furious that it went waste. I couldn't just throw it away. My sister has normal to dry skin, so I told her to give it a try thinking it might suit her more. She said it stayed well on her skin but wouldn't use it again as it made her skin break out too. I checked out more reviews online and found that oily skinned people hated this. Those with normal-to-dry skin found it suited them and some even said this was their favorite.
The 'Wow' factor
- Budget friendly
- A BIG NO for oily skin beauties. It wouldn't dry and melts off from the skin.
- It doesn't stay long and wears off too fast.
- Made mine and my sister's (dry) skin break out.
Every skin reacts differently to different products. Mine and my sister's skin broke out doesn't mean it might be the same for all but I wouldn't personally recommend this to anyone.
