The Maybelline Fit Me foundation has been very popular both for its tone matching capabilities as well as for its quality. When I tried the original Fit Me formula and thought it was a great foundation, however when the Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless formula was released, I thought it would be a god sent for my combination to oily skin.

This foundation targets normal to oily skin types. It focuses on problem areas such as enlarged pores and excessive oil and shine typically in the t-zone. The formula is both mattifying and poreless which means it will reduce oil and shine as well blur your pores making them appear invisible.
This foundation comes in a variety of shades for women of color. I bought the shade Spicy Brown, #338. I have golden undertones in my skin and I found this color to match me very well.
Applying this foundation was so easy. It blends flawlessly into the skin and truly does provide that blurred, airbrushed effect. Once this foundation sets, it provides a demi-matte finish which controls shine but also allows for a natural and flawless look. This foundation is medium coverage therefore it is not too sheer, however you can still see some imperfections through the foundation. I do not mind this because I like my foundations to look and feel natural. Although the foundation has medium coverage, it is buildable without looking and feeling cakey. As for how the foundation wears throughout the day, I still get oily in my t-zone which is typical for my combination to oily skin no matter what type of foundation I use. I do set this foundation with a translucent powder, however I also need to blot once or twice during the day. Having to blot is normal for me and is not an inconvenience, therefore it does not lessen my enjoyment of this foundation.
The Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless foundation is $6-$8 depending on where you get it. I have found that Ulta typically has the entire spectrum of colors in stock as opposed to Walmart or drugstores. Overall, I really like this foundation and I am surprised by the quality considering the $7.99 price tag. This could easily pass for a higher end foundation. Therefore if you have normal to oily skin or even drier skin types (considering the foundation is not too mattifying) and are looking for an affordable foundation, I would absolutely recommend it! You may purchase this foundation from from Ulta or any drugstore.
