Review: Maybelline FIT Foundation and Pressed Powder in 355....

Friday, March 04, 2011

Hey Everyone!!!

Intially, I was immediately turned off from the Maybelline FIT display in my local Wal-Mart. Why? The color section was lightest, light, lighter.....skip to one lone dark color.:(

So, I got online did a little research, listen to my twitter beauty buddies, and found out that some colors on my display were missing. But still....I'll get into that in a sec.

I purchased 355 ( Coconut) foundation and powder since it looked like the closest color to my skin. It is the darkest color in the collection believe it or not.

FIT Pressed Powder in 355:

I really like this pressed powder over the foundation. Its gives my skin a virtually flawless finish. I apply it with a kabuki brush and buff it out. The only problem I have with it is that it not a "flat" powder, meaning its not matte. FIT Pressed Powder has a bit of a sheen, glow to it. Its almost like a bronzer ( the collection has a bronzer but this is not it). If you were lighter than me, it would be a great bronzer. When I get oily, a couple hours later, I look super oily because of the glowy texture of the powder. I prefer a "flat" or matte pressed powder.
FIT Foundation in 355:

I also like the foundation overall. It has a light to medium coverage and matched perfectly. Its a teeny bit too dark, but for a drugstore foundation its the closest I've gotten in a longgggg time! The only negative would be that I dont like that it pours out of a glass bottle. In today beauty innovation....this should be been in a tube or a pump. The packaging is too old school and I tend to get to much product out when I'm just trying to get a dab.


Maybelline did really well with the FIT regimen. Tweak the packaging of the foundation and add some darker shades and it would be perfect in my book. If you can find your color in this, buy it!
