Maybelline Fit Me Collection

Maybelline Fit Me Collection is a new range of blushes, concealers, pressed powders, and foundations in an array of various shades ranging from lighter to darker.  Maybelline’s idea for fitting your correct shade is allowing you to fit your wrist under the cardboard cut out of a particular shade and matching up accordingly. Honestly, matching your wrist to your face is always risky even though its a time honored tradition eh?

Some of the blushes looked really pretty but I’m not so sure about the foundations and such even the concealer failed to excite me but we’ll see eh?

Whatcha think?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I always have a hard time finding a good drugstore foundation that matches my skin tone. They always look too yellow to me. From the pics, their foundation looks orange. But maybe that is the lighting? Did they look better in person?

    • the Muse

      kimi could be me but they look really beige, brown, and muddy in proper lighting……maybe I’m picky though!?

    • katie

      no they don’t but from my experience it is very easy to get out of the bottle unlike most drugstore liquid foundations. i really like this foundation not cakey, not heavy, and very natural

  • Comrade_Garlic

    Well, I bought one of these along with the craptastic Loreal soufflé foundation. I haven’t tried the Maybelline yet. It doesn’t have a pump, so it’s going to be messy. The bottle opening is big and the formula is runny. I’m pretty sure I got the wrong shade. I’m trying it out tomorrow, it will be a 12 plus hour day, so a good test day. Hopefully the color isn’t too off.

    • the Muse

      mmm I suspected as much but they were sealed so couldn’t check comrade. 🙁 No offense it’s prob awful! but don’t quote me!

  • Liz

    Is it just the photos or were some of the shades Oompa Loompa / Jersey Shore orange?

  • Ruthless

    I have always had better luck matching foundation to the back of my hand-of course I have to blend on my face prior to purchase, but it helps narrow down the right tones anyways. Wrist does nothing for me

  • Sara

    I picked up this foundation yesterday, and it honestly looks like your color and as soon as you apply, you look like Snooki. And my shade I picked was only in Natural Beige. It doesnt have a orange tone, but it doesnt have a strong yellow one either, and deffinently not pink tone. Just pure TAN! but without orange. Honestly, this foundation looks like they didnt take much time on the tones and colors. Plus, the names are just not matching up. But when I got home, I blended into my hand, and it seems to blend rather quickly and nicely. I might get a different shade and try it again, but not sure.

  • Casey

    Unlike most people here, I actually appreciate the yellow-y foundations. 90% of foundations are too pink on me because I have strong yellow undertones.

  • Maddie

    I didnt have room to fit my wrist under it =( not too sure if matching my wrist to my face would be a good idea….

  • neutralgirl

    I actually bought this the other day and tried it. The color wasn’t great but that wasn’t the biggest problem. It is runny and made my skin feel greasy halfway thru the day. My friend bought one too and it made her orange. We will both be returning ours. Don’t bother.

  • sam

    looks like another drugstore foundation that claims a wide range of colors. but their deepest shade is for those w. olive tones. i get that blacks are a minority but we like wearing makeup too.

    • the Muse

      sam I don’t think any of the shades will fit lighter skin tones anyway hun, they are all pretty orange-y and I’m personally not orange nor is anyone else aside from Snooki ha!

  • Christie

    I am so happy that I found this site!

    I bought this foundation yesterday because I liked the packaging and the color of the foundation matched my face perfectly. I liked the way it felt on my skin and the coverage was similar to Smashbox Healthy FX foundation. It did not turn my face orange like most drugstore foundations BUT it did cause a bunch of breakouts on my chin. I do have sensitive skin but 4 pimples after wearing this for no more than 6 hours is ridiculous! I wish it would have worked out!

    • the Muse

      aw happy you found me too Christie ;-D Glad you’re enjoyed the coverage on this…but sorry about the break outs 🙁

  • Kristen

    I bought this foundation and pressed powder on monday. I just love both of the products. The products match my skin perfectly. I think it’s geared towards ppl with dry skin, so if you have oily skin, this might not work because it’s a thin consistency.

  • Mia

    I honestly didn’t like this foundation. I bought mine about a month ago and it was just awful. They only had 120 as the lightest shade at my store when 110 is truly the lightest shade they have. I bought the concealer that went with the 120 foundation (in 20 sand) and it was much darker than the 120 foundation that was supposed to match! What is Maybelline thinking!? Not to mention that I’m acne prone and the foundation broke me out. The powder of this collection does nothing. I get oily through out the day and use a powder for touch ups. The foundation alone leaves me a grease ball when my combination skin is never that bad with other foundations. The powder just made me a cakey and greasy mess.

    I’m a pale girl,(I freckle never tan) but I’m sort of in the middle as far a my skin tone goes, all of the Revlon Foundations are too yellow and the Maybelline foundations are all too orangy/pink as well.
    I have tried many of the foundation available in the US ( Drugstore and high-end alike), and was getting ready to venture into the Asian B and B cream Market when I found this product.
    I purchased the Maybelline Fit Me in 110 ( the lightest shade) on a whim even though the color was a bit of an eyebrow raiser.
    Surprisingly it is an almost perfect match to my skin tone, the product is semi transparent so it blends out nicely to really match my skin tone. I will definitely re-buy.
    I have dry sensitive skin but the formula isn’t a problem for me, I’ve had no problems with breakouts.
    I did notice in the store that the concealers looked a lot darker than the foundation matches and the blushes were quite pinky so I skipped on those.

    Wow Sam. I don’t think that blacks are the only ethnicity with skin tones that are orange, olive, beige or tan. Mediterraneans, native americans, mixed ethnicities to name a few — are all people who would probably benefit from these color choices. Not to mention Caucasians who may feel lumped into the “blacks” catagory by your statement, if the shades happen to work for them.
    Having said that, I purchased the 220 concealer, foundation and powder. Blends marvelously! The colors go perfectly with my neutral/olive complexion (I am african american). I tried the 350 also, and yes, it is too orangey to blend. But overal, I think if you have normal to dry skin this product will work wonders. But if you have large pores, the foundation seems to accentuate them.

  • Paloma

    I bought it. I’m number 230. It’s my first time I’ve ever bought liquid foundation and i love it! It’s not orangey on me at all. And it’s so nice and smooth too. I don’t think it’s a heavy coverage, but it’s definitely covering. Next I’m onto their concealers!

  • Kristin Sherman

    I have been using the foundation and powder for a week and a half now and I have zits everywhere. This is not cool!!!

    • the Muse

      all drugstores have it at the moment mary, this shot was taken at harmons.

  • Claudia Kotchick

    I found this foundation to be
    a. runny
    b. provide sheer coverage
    c. made my normally very dry skin look greasy without being hydrating.
    d. strong yellow undertones, which is what I look for in a foundation, but wouldn’t be helpful if its not something you wanted.
    e. even though it is packaged without a pump, its not very messy. Simply dribble out what you need and the rest slides back in.

    Overall, I’m not a very big fan

  • Jenna

    I’ve tried these. The foundation is god awful watery. It made my normal skin look very greasy.. and it wasn’t barely even an hour after putting it on. The powder is ok. Even after using a setting spray it still looked like it had been on for hours instead of just one.

    Someone told me that you’re getting what you pay for. I have to disagree. The Cover Girl Clean products are SO much better.. and they are a dollar cheaper. I know its hit or miss with drugstore make up.. but Maybelline dropped the ball with the foundation and powder.
