Editor's Pick: Maybelline Fit Me Foundation ReviewDecember 13, 2016
You wouldn’t use a skin care product that isn’t specifically formulated for your skin type and concerns—so, why use a foundation that isn’t? We recently received complimentary samples of Maybelline’s range of Fit Me foundations that are specifically formulated with normal, oily, acne-prone, dry, and sensitive skin types in mind. Find out which foundation is right for you (and, more importantly, your skin type) in our Maybelline Fit Me foundation reviews, below.
MAYBELLINE FIT ME MATTE + PORELESS FOUNDATION REVIEW
Recommended For: Normal to oily skin.
Oily skin types, listen up! Maybelline’s Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation can not only provide your complexion with natural-looking coverage… it can help mattify your complexion and reduce the appearance of large pores, too! Ideal for normal to oily skin types, this non-comedogenic foundation formula is enriched with micro-powders to control shine and blur the visible appearance of skin imperfections, leaving you with a seamless finish.
Why We Love It: Finding a foundation—or skin care product, for that matter—that can mattify the complexion and reduce the appearance of shine without drying out the skin can be hard… but not impossible! Fortunately, you can find a stellar foundation specifically formulated for your oily skin’s concerns at your local drugstore. One of the reasons why I love Maybelline’s Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation is because of its ability to blur skin imperfections and reduce the appearance of large pores—two skin concerns that can be hard to mask with your average foundation, especially when you have oily skin.
How To Use It: After cleansing, moisturizing, and applying a skin protecting SPF to your complexion, use a foundation brush, damp beauty blending sponge, or your fingertips to apply the Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation from Maybelline—starting at the center of your complexion and working your way out. Blend for a flawless-looking finish.
MAYBELLINE FIT ME DEWY + SMOOTH FOUNDATION REVIEW
Recommended For: Normal to dry skin.
Give your complexion a natural-looking, luminous appeal with Maybelline’s Fit Me Dewy + Smooth Foundation. Formulated with normal to dry skin types in mind, this hydrating drugstore foundation can hydrate dry, rough patches on your complexion, protect your skin with SPF 18, and provide the skin with natural-looking coverage. In addition, its gentle formula is enriched with skin hydrating glycerin and is non-comedogenic— meaning, it won’t clog pores— fragrance-free, and allergy tested.
Why We Love It: As someone who prefers BB cream over foundation, I am always hesitant to try a new foundation in fear that it will make me look like I am wearing a tan-colored mask. Fortunately, many foundations—including Maybelline’s Fit Me Dewy + Smooth Foundation—are formulated with skin care in mind and can create more of a second skin than an unsightly makeup mask. One of the reasons why I love Maybelline’s Fit Me Dewy + Smooth Foundation is because it is true to its name. Upon application, my seasonal dry skin appeared hydrated, dewy, soft, and smooth with a natural-looking glow. I would recommend this drugstore foundation to anyone with normal to dry skin looking to give their complexion a boost of visibly illuminating hydration.
How To Use It: Using a foundation brush, damp beauty blending sponge, or your fingertips, apply a small amount of foundation onto the skin—starting at the center of your face and working your way out—and blend. For buildable coverage, repeat until you reach your desired coverage.
MAYBELLINE FIT ME SHINE-FREE + BALANCE STICK FOUNDATION REVIEW
Recommended For: All skin types, including oily and sensitive skin.
Looking for something a little more on-the-go? Reach for Maybelline’s Fit Me Shine-Free + Balance Stick Foundation. The lightweight foundation is a powder foundation stick that is specifically formulated to give the skin a natural-looking, medium-coverage matte finish. In addition, the stick foundation is non-comedogenic, oil-free, fragrance-free, allergy tested, and is gentle enough to use on sensitive skin types. Use the foundation as part of your daily makeup application or toss it in your purse for mid-day touchups.
Why We Love It: As someone who prefers to spend more time applying skin care products and less time fussing over makeup application, I appreciate anything that is made with busy (or lazy… like me) girls in mind. Maybelline’s Fit Me Shine-Free + Balance Stick Foundation comes in an easy-to-use, on-the-go applicator that requires little effort to apply— seriously, all you have to do is swipe the creamy foundation stick across your complexion and blend with your fingertips. Upon application, I noticed that not only did my skin have natural-looking coverage, it appeared smoothed and mattified, too! I would recommend this foundation stick to anyone looking for an effective foundation that ultimately can save them time in their beauty routine.
How To Use It: To use Maybelline’s Fit Me Shine-Free + Balance Stick Foundation, apply the stick directly to a cleansed and moisturized complexion and blend using your fingertips or a damp beauty blending sponge.
MAYBELLINE FIT ME CONCEALER REVIEW
Recommended For: All skin types, including oily skin.
After applying one of Maybelline’s Fit Me foundations to your complexion, follow up with the brand’s Fit Me Concealer. Formulated to cover up unwanted blemishes and impurities on the complexion, this easy-to-use drugstore concealer is formulated for all skin types—including sensitive and oily skin—as it is oil-free, non-comedogenic, and fragrance-free. The formula is enriched with skin-hydrating glycerin and soothing chamomile flower extract, and can provide your complexion with natural-looking coverage and help to temporarily even out the appearance of your skin tone.
Why We Love It: While I (fortunately) do not experience regular breakouts, I do have chronic—read: genetic—puffy eyes and dark circles… so I am always looking for a concealer that can mask the appearance of my tired-looking peepers. One of the reasons why I love Maybelline’s Fit Me Concealer is thanks to its effective ability to reduce the appearance of my skin imperfections with just a few dabs of the applicator wand. Upon application, I noticed that my dark under-eye circles were seemingly non-existent and my puffy eyes appeared smoothed with a natural-looking finish.
How To Use It: To use Maybelline’s Fit Me Concealer, simply dot the concealer onto the affected area using the wand applicator and pat with your ring finger or a damp beauty blending sponge to blend.

Editor’s Tip: Take Maybelline’s Fit Me Concealer one step further and use it to create the perfect contour! You’ll need one darker shade—for sculpting the hollows of your cheeks, the sides of your nose and anywhere else on your complexion that may need shadowing—and one lighter shade for highlighting the bridge of your nose, Cupid’s bow, under-eyes, brow bones, and so on.
