From a quite a long time I have been trying out a new foundation (new in my stash and not in the market) and that is Maybelline Fit Dewy+Smooth Foundation. From quite a long time I have been hunting for a good budgeted dewy foundation and 2 foundations caught my eye, one was the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Foundation and the other was Maybelline Dewy+Smooth Foundation. There were rave reviews about the Neutrogena Healty Skin Foundation as well as Maybelline Dewy and Smooth and I zeroed on this one as Neutrogena Healthy Skin Foundation was a lil expensive than this one. Price of Maybelline Foundation was somewhere around $7-$9 and the Neutrogena foundation is priced at $15.
I mix two shades to match my color 115 Ivory+230 Natural Buff. 115 Ivory has pink undertone and 230 Natural Buff has yellow undertone. So for a perfect color match I mix both taking 2 drops of 230 Natural Buff and one drop of 115 Ivory. It has creamy consistency and the foundation is runny and that can be a bit messy as it does not come with a dispenser or so. Packaging is quite sturdy and comes in square shaped glass bottle with a black lid with the shade number written on top of it. Its best suited for Normal to Dry and I have combination skin (normal to oily) but still it works out really well and gives the right amount of dewiness. But if you are someone with an oily skin I would rather suggest you to skip this.
It gives medium coverage which I liked as I usually don’t go for full coverage foundations as it gives me an artificial look and besides that there is no harm in showing off your flaws.
Overall I quite liked this foundation and would love to try out Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless Foundation as that is again the cult favorite from the brand. Wish they launch in India as well.
You can buy it from Amazon.com
