I absolutely hate this foundation. The only plus to this product is the look of the packaging. It comes in a slim, rectangular-shaped glass container. It’s very clean looking when you first buy it. I have combination-oily skin and this foundation doesn’t work for me at all. I don’t recommend it for people with normal to oily skin. I have seen positive reviews from those with very dry skin though. If you’re dry skinned, I’d suggest giving it a try. The price is fairly inexpensive. I got both bottles for less than $5.00. Just to throw this out there, I have the exact same opinion about the Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation as I do the Maybelline Fit Me Foundation.
When I first apply the foundation, it looks great and feels great. It covers nicely and it doesn’t feel heavy. However, after an hour or so, everything goes downhill. My face starts to get oily and the foundation starts to feel heavy. Even if I blot and refresh with powder, I’ll be oily again within 30 minutes. Nobody likes to look like a greaseball.
- – The cap is a pain. When you screw it back on the bottle, it doesn’t always line up. Sometimes the front of the cap ends up aligning with the back of the bottle. ANNOYING. It may not be a big deal for some people, but I really hate it when things aren’t orderly and looking clean.
- – My skin gets very oily with this foundation. No amount of blotting sheets or powder will make it stop!
- – With the oily skin comes breakouts and little bumps all over my face.
- – This foundation accentuates bumps and pores when the skin starts to get oily.
- – “Fresh, breathing, natural skin” – definitely NOT! It’s a noticeable foundation. I can tell I have it on my skin and my pores feel very clogged.
- – Rubs off easily. If you have someone you hug regularly, expect them to end up wearing this too. It’ll get on their clothes if you even SLIGHTLY touch them with your face. If you have someone to kiss, this will end up bordering around their mouth. My sweetie is a very pale Caucasian guy and I’m medium-deep skin toned. It really shows on him if my foundation transfers. When he kisses me on the cheek, forehead, nose, etc, this ended up tinting the tip of his nose and bordered around his mouth. It’s silly looking and funny, but I feel bad letting him walk around looking like he got a bad fake tan.
