Hello, gorgeousness! I will be reviewing the Maybelline Fit Me! Matte + Poreless Foundation for you guys today. I know I am kinda late in this bandwagon but let me just say that this foundation is now available in my country. YASSS. I can't help it and immediately went and purchased it. Here's the deal, I'm nowhere near finishing my Sephora 10HR Wear Perfection Foundation (currently in my second bottle) but I was in need of a great drugstore option because I just don't see myself continuously repurchasing an RM78 foundation.

This foundation retails for RM49.90 and it could be cheaper or pricier depending on which drugstore you buy them at. Anyway, it's available at Watsons, Guardian and online. Without any further ado, let's begin!


"This lightweight foundation mattifies and refines pores and leaves a natural, seamless finish. Ideal for normal to oily skin, our exclusive matte foundation formula features micro-powders to control shine and blur pores. Pore minimizing foundation. Dermatology tested. Allergy tested. Non-comedogenic (products that are specially formulated to not cause any blocked pores)"


The packaging is, unfortunately, something that I dislike. Why? Because it doesn't have a pump. It contains no pump which makes it inconvenient for application. I have to carefully pour some product out on the back of my hand and apply it with my beauty blender.


I am in the shade 220 Natural Beige, which is my ideal and perfect shade. I was so skeptical between shade 220 and 230 at first. I don't know what shade to get because the lighting there wasn't the best. After swatching for hundred times, I am so glad I picked 220 because 230 actually was too orange for my skin tone. I have a neutral undertone but 220 is perfect for me and I noticed it didn't oxidize that much on me. I thank the Lord for that.

The formula is matte, creamy and smooth. It's not that runny but not too thick either when I pour a little on the back of my hand, which means it's a slightly lightweight foundation. In my opinion, it has a nice consistency, blends seamlessly and not cakey. It doesn't crease much on me, not patchy whatsoever. I absolutely love it when I wear this foundation, it feels like I am having a good makeup day. That's all I can say.

As far as coverage goes, it has a light to medium coverage. The coverage is buildable and you can definitely layer it up to full coverage but it might get cakey on some people. I usually build it up depending on my mood. I just love the fact that this foundation is customizable to your needs. Y'know what I mean? 


I am pleased to say that the staying power is super impressive. I can safely say that this foundation can last up to 12 hours wear and I didn't turn into an absolute greasy mess as I would when I wear the Sephora foundation. Make no mistake, I did get oily with this foundation but nothing major, I would say. I'm an oily gal, it's normal for me to get a little oily around my T-zone. I'm just pleasantly surprised that I'm not much of an oil slick with the Fit Me foundation.

I think I have found my holy grail foundation! This is all I have been using every day for the past few weeks and I can safely say that I would repurchase this foundation. I wouldn't mind spending 50 ringgit for a foundation because the quality is comparable to high-end ones. Overall, this is a great foundation for people with oily and normal skin types. I absolutely recommend it if you're looking for a long-wearing, buildable and matte foundation that wouldn't break the bank.

Have you tried this foundation? Do you like it?
