Maybelline Fit Me - Shine Free Foundation

 So a few days ago I received a little pack and was really surprised that I did, because I couldn't remember ordering something that fit in such a small envelope. When I opened it, I spotted the new Maybelline Fit Me - Shine Free Foundation Stick. I have applied to be a tester of this foundation & they obviously chose me (this is not a sponsored thing, literally everyone could take part there!) which made me really happy, because I like trying out new things :) Getting sent a foundation is also great for me, because I absolutely hate going into a drug store to buy a foundation, as there seems to be nothing available that matches my fair skin, so I always procrastinate that bit. (I also just have one foundation apart from that new one now!)

The foundation has a gel bit outside & a powdery core, which is supposed to make your skin matter. 

Right after I got it I obviously wanted to test it out straight away. It feels really smooth when you apply it onto your skin. For blending it I found that my Real Techniques stippling brush works best, I blend this foundation doing circular motions. What I love about this foundation, is that I think it matches my skin tone quite well (I got the colour 120 classic Ivory) and it doesn't look cakey at all.

I wore this foundation on saturday when I worked for 9 hours and I must admit, that it didn't keep my skin matte for the entire day, but I honestly didn't expect that it would do so, because obviously I am sweating etc. What I loved about it though, was that it felt like I had no foundation on at all, it just felt really light on my skin! I would describe the coverage as medium, as it covered most of my redness, but  not my spots or other blemishes I have, but my favourite concealer which is from the Fit me range, too, fixed this perfectly :)
On these photos I am wearing the foundation without any powder or concealer on top. You can obv. still see my freckles & my blemishes, but this can be minimised by adding some concealer :)

All in all, I think this foundation is great if you don't want to cover up your face entirely. I wouldn't recommend it, if you have super oily skin, unless you don't mind touching up your make up during the day (which I obviously couldn't do as I was working).

The foundation currently costs 11,99€ or& £8.99

Have a looooovely sunday evening :) xxx
