Maybelline Fit Me Blush (Summer 2017) Review & Swatches

Maybelline Fit Me Blush ($5.99) have relaunched and have gotten repackaged for Summer 2017. I’m probably living under a rock but I actually don’t really like the Fit Me Collection and I’m not sure why Maybelline is wasting time revising it. It seems like a dated collection to me but maybe it’s a much beloved one?! I dunno…!

Either way, I was a little surprised to see the Fit Me Blush was repackaged and is being repromoted. The price remains at $5.99 and the size is still 0.16 oz but Maybelline ditched the brush that the blush used to come with and houses these in new smaller square packaging (you can get some old shades on sale at Ulta.com for $2.99 which include the brush). They are actually a little smaller than a Bobbi Brown Blush compact but I don’t mind as it makes for easier storage. I don’t use the brush that drugstore makeup comes with anyway so the fact they ditched it is fine by me.

The shade range appears new but I can’t confirm as I never really tried the original Fit Me Blush range. But I compared a few shades of the new versus the old and I don’t see any of the old shades in this new launch. Don’t quote me but it looks like not only the packaging changed pbut also the core colors.

I actually find Maybelline Fit Me Blush as uneventful as Revlon Powder Blush. It’s just a formula I’m not terribly impressed with and for a reason I can’t quite put my finger on.

Maybelline Peach Fit Me Blush

Maybelline Fit Me Blush Swatches (Peach)

The shade I purchased, Peach, should be quite appealing to me as it’s an Orgasm-like golden peach that I’m typically drawn too but the formula failed to impressed me. I can’t explain quite what it is that bugs me about the texture, formulation, and consistency of this blush but I can only say it feels like a very cheap, dry blush. The application is a bit patchy, it looks uneven and far from natural and it clings to drier areas on my cheeks horribly. It takes me back to when I was 12 years old and I’d get those Color Cosmetic Company Gift Sets from relatives that included a slew of different eyeshadows, blushes, and lipsticks. It just has that cheap makeup look and feel. It’s not dusty but it is drier which could be why I’m not loving the formula. The wear time is actually fairly good at around six hours but it looks quite patchy on my drier skin not to mention it gives me a very made up look and is far from natural looking. It is very pigmented so a lighter hand is recommended during application.

I’m find myself struggling to say anything good about it because it’s a blush that just didn’t look good on me nor did it apply well. I simply didn’t like it at all.

Can’t win ’em all I guess right?

I imagine if you liked Maybelline Fit Me Blush in the past perhaps you’ll get on famously with the newly packaged version but personally I won’t be going back for more shades.

Maybelline Fit Me Blush is available now at amazon.com and ulta.com.

    I haven’t tried the Fit Me blushes, but I wanted to because I really enjoy using the Fit Me pressed powder. But now I probably won’t try try blush, haha. I have too many blushes anyway 😉

    I’ve pretty much given up on Maybelline for anything other than some of their mascaras and a lipstick now and again. Repacking the blush in the Fit Me line….. why? If they didn’t tweak the formula and make it better why bother. Folks shouldn’t waste their money. Thanks Muse for this review.

  • Brandy

    Thanks for reviewing these. I usually use drugstore blush and I was curious about these, but I know to skip them now. Btw, you helped me discover Jordana blushes which I absolutely love! Even though it means a trip to the deserted and very sad looking Kmart in my town.

    • Isabella Muse

      LOL OMG we can hold hands and go to kmart together 🙂 Mine is deserted too and scary! But so glad you like those blushes! Def skip the Fit Me, I really didn’t like the formula at all 🙁

      • Brandy

        Lol. Seriously, the makeup displays looked like the sales associates just threw things near where they’re supposed to go and said “Good enough.” I doubt it’s customers making the mess because there aren’t any customers except for maybe a few old ladies who can’t seem to let go of Kmart.

    I have a Fit Me blush, and I never use it. It’s very patchy, and the pigmentation isn’t great. I love the Fit Me foundation and powder, so I was pretty disappointed.

    Today I bought the new Maybelline blush in the mauve color and I absolutely love it!! Sad not many others are enjoying it. Now I didn’t like the old blushes myself but I really did like this shade on my pale skin, formula was much better this time as I didn’t think it was chalky like the old ones.

      I’m glad you liked it Amber 😀 I wasn’t so into it I fear but I’m glad you enjoyed it!
