A few weeks ago I saw the new collection from Maybelline, Fit Me and just now recently picked up the foundation. The collection carries foundations, concealers, powders, blushes, and bronzer. There is a total of 18 foundation colors, 6 concealers, 18 pressed powders, 12 blushes and 3 bronzers that are meant to compliment one another. According to the Maybelline website they claim that the foundation:
- No oils, no waxes, no nonsense
- Natural coverage that leaves skin the way it was meant to be…fresh, breathing, natural
- Exclusive translucent base and lightweight pigments allow skin’s natural highs and lows to show through
- Non-comedogenic, dermatologist-tested
The foundation is supposed to look like your natural skin only better, “skin perfecting” & “skin tone matching” And I must say that I agree. The first thing that I caught my eye was the new sleek packaging. It has more of a high end feeling to it. Not to mention the price! I got mine at target for only $6.95! When I first put it on it reminded me of my NARS Sheer Glow. It goes on smooth and it is very easy to blend and it is build-able. So you can have a medium to full coverage. It feels so weightless and light, almost the feel you get from a tinted moisturizer. The foundation gives your skin a healthy, dewy glow.
The only bad thing I would say about Fit Me is that it is probably not great for us Super oily chicas. Even if you have dry or normal skin, I find that you do have to powder to set it, so that you don’t look like a big shiny disco ball! If you have combination skin I think it may still work, but maybe not so much in the hot summer months. I live in Texas and there is no way this would last on my face for more than an hour without me having to retouch. But like I said if your not oily you should definitely give this foundation a try! To me it is a dupe for Sheer glow, which is $45 and this one is only $7!
I hope this was helpful to you ladies and let me know what you think of the foundation if you try it out!

I’m a mascara junkie! I’m always on the look out for the next best thing, as I’m sure most of you are. In the not so recent past my HG mascaras have been Dior Show Blackout, Givenchy, CG lashblast, and most recently Loreal Voluminous (LOVE IT!) So recently, I have been tempted by the new Maybelline Falsies’ ads. Even though I know I shouldn’t, since all mascara advertisements and commercials are so over the top that no matter what you do, you’re lashes will never be as full and long as they show. But I couldn’t help myself and had to try it when I was at my local Target and saw it on sale for $5! Plus, I always try to use coupons and it so happened that I had one for $2 off. So you can’t beat $3 for a mascara!
The Maybelline website states
I have to say that it does seem to make them longer. I went to my doctor today and she actually made a comment about how long my lashes were! As for the volume, I was expecting a bit more. 300% more lashes? Not really. So will the new Maybelline Falsies replace my beloved Loreal Voluminous……. I don’t think it will. Overall I think it is a great mascara! I do like the packaging, purple and teal, great combo! It does catch your eye when your strolling the cosmetic isles! You cant beat the price and it did actually work better than some of the other high end mascaras I’ve used. But I don’t think it lives up to the ads or what the website says.
