Maybelline Fit Me! Matte + Poreless Foundation

Wednesday, July 05, 2017

I'll be reviewing the Maybelline Fit Me! Matte + Poreless Foundation for you guys today. I know I'm 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 a MYR78 foundation.

This foundation retails for MYR49.90 but some people get it for even cheaper than that and I'm mad. Anyway, it's currently available at Aeon Wellness and Guardian. 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 isn't something that I like. It's a glass bottle, it's heavy and breakable. What's worst? It doesn't have a pump. Yes, you read that right. 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 sponge.


I'm 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 that helping. After swatching for hundred times, I'm so glad I picked 220 because 230 was way too orange for my skin tone. I have a neutral undertone but 220 perfectly match with me and doesn't oxidizes on me too. Thank god! The color is on-point and doesn't oxidizes on me so I'm good.

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 lightweight foundation. In my opinion, it has a nice consistency, blends seamlessly and not cakey. It doesn't creases on me, not patchy whatsoever. I absolutely love it when I wear this foundation, it feels like I'm having a good makeup day. That's all I can say.

The coverage I would say it's a light to medium coverage. However, it's buildable and you can definitely layer it up to full coverage without looking cakey! That's what I usually do because I have quite a number of dark spots around my cheeks and jaw line, so this foundation can absolutely conceal it. It doesn't crumble and get patchy whatsoever. I just love the fact that this foundation is customizable to your needs. Y'know what I mean? Plus 8 points for that!


I'm pleased to say that the staying power is super impressive! This foundation can last the whole day and I didn't turn into a greasy mess as I would when I wear the Sephora foundation. I would say it stayed put and stayed strong for periods of like 8 hours and more. However, I did find myself a bit oily on my nose area at the end of the day. My nose is my only problematic area, there's nothing I can do even though I've set it with a setting powder. But other than my nose area, the foundation stayed put so I'm all good.

OMG, I think I've found my holy-grail foundation! This is all I've been using everyday for the past few weeks now and I can safely say that I would repurchase this foundation. I wouldn't mind spend 50 ringgit although that price point is quite high up there for a drugstore foundation. It does wonders on my skin though I'll get a little oily on the nose at the end of the day, maybe because I didn't wear primer and I just can blot it anyway. But overall, this is a great foundation for people with oily and normal skin types. I'm all good and I'm certain that I'm happy with my purchase!

Have you tried this foundation? What are your thoughts about it?


  1. Baru nampak foundation ni kat Watsons hari tu. nampak menarik jugak! Siqah nak cuba nanti tapi tunggu foundation sekarang habis. Hehe

    1. Memang betul betul puas hati pakai foundation ni Siqah. Lenne pun ada jual jugak foundation ni hihi just to let you know. Sometimes kat drugstore selalu oos and shade pun tinggal yg utk deeper skin tones je.

  2. My sister use it and says that she loved it too. I used some and yeah loving it as well. The color fits, not too thick, not too runny, stays, not crease - just about everything you just say. I am actually happy you have found your perfect foundation because those things are so tricky!

    1. I knowww! Finding the right shade can be challenging as hell haha! This is my new favorite though, loving it so much :)

  3. I want this so bad! Gotta go and buy these baby at any drugstores asap. Hopefully there still some left. Have you tried Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation? Which is better either those two? 😊

    1. You can order from me if you want! Hehehe. I haven't tried any Bourjois's foundation before so I can't really help T.T But I guess both of them are equally great :)

    2. Really, how much you jual? It's okay, I thought you have tried it before. Hehe I heard about it too and I don't know which one to grab now 😊

    3. I've requested to follow you on twitter! 😄 I guess we can chat more there~

  4. I'm so glad you like it! This is definitely my favourite drugstore foundation of all time :)

    1. It's the best. Nothing beats this baby 😍

  5. nampak macam menarik tapi Nadia tak pandai pakai foundation . Foundation tak pernah ada . Nadia suka pakai BB cream . BB cream dgn foundation lain kan ? Hihi ...

    Tapiiii, baca dkt atas , even lenne review packaging nya glass and breakable . Nadia rasa suka lah dgn packaging nya nampak exclusive hihi

    1. Yup berbeza hehe but function dia sama je sebagai makeup base. Dulu Lenne prefer BB cream over foundation sbb dia ringan. But as time goes, Lenne nak coverage pulak so beralih kepada foundation hehe 😄

      Nampak exclusive but I just don't trust myself with glass products hahaha but memang nampak cantik for display and all :)

    2. Ohhh Bb cream and foundation quite similar but diffierent mcm tue . Baru faham =)

  6. I got mine too! Really love the coverage and it is long lasting. I prefer guna dgn beauty blender sbb finishing lagi flawless gittew hehe. Other than that I really hate it doesn't come with a pump. Super messy bila nak apply since it is liquidy.

    I think i will use this foundation sampai bile2 haha

    1. I'm so happy I purchased this foundation! I'm not reaching other foundations ever since I got this haha. I like to use it with beauty sponge too. It blends like a dream! But the only drawback is it doesn't have a pump right? Always a minus in my eyes T.T

  7. Light to medium coverage je eh.. Huhu.. Still looking for a foundation yang medium to high coverage maybe.. Sebab fatin ada redness (parut merah-merah) kat area pipi. Foundation ni sesuai tak untuk combination-to-dry-skin?
