Maybelline NY FITme Matte + Poreless

Maybelline NY’s popular FITme foundation has had a makeover and today I want to introduce you to the new FITme Matte + Poreless range. Before I go into detail, I want to remind you of the top foundations feature that we have been putting together, as I really have to add this little beauty in there.

What do you expect from a foundation that has an RRP of just $21.95? I was expecting something that I could just use as a budget foundation for those days where you just have to duck down to the shop and bumping into people isn’t really on the cards. What I found instead when I applied this product was so much more than that. I don’t know if it is because the shade I picked up was the perfect match for my skintone, or if the concerns I have such as wanting to conceal my pores and eliminate shine were met – but this is genuinely one of my new favourite foundations.


The look is natural but I still get the daily coverage I want, and I do like a matte finish. It is almost an airbrushed look, and for me it seems to smooth and cover everything I want it to without feeling oily or dry.

There are 6 shades to choose from and while it can be a bit of a challenge to find the right one, once you do you will want to stick with it:

  • Porcelain
  • Ivory
  • Classic Ivory
  • Natural Beige
  • Pure Beige
  • Sun Beige

While I do really feel like foundation is such a personal choice, if you have normal to oily skin, budget conscious and are worried about your pores I would definitely be seeking out a tester at my nearest stockist.

Get it from supermarkets, pharmacies and variety and independent stores.
