Review: Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation

Posted by

As I constantly say, finding a liquid foundation that would match my skin tone here in Japan is quite a challenge for me. Maybe this time I’d say that I’ve found something that would solve the issue, only it’s not a Japanese brand. Don Quijote carries this brand and it’s where I purchased this about a month ago or so. First off, let me tell you about my skin condition for the time being.
– acne-prone (no zits at the moment)
– oily (sometimes) & dehydrated
– with reddish and dark acne marks
– large pores
– uneven skin tone
– dull & rough
With these concerns in mind, I’d love to get my hands on a liquid foundation that can at least blur my impurities. I’m not really a fan of heavy coverage base because I feel like it’s not good for my skin that’s prone to pimples and I still want my skin to peep through.

Shade: 220 Natural Beige, 1,500 yen (tax excluded)

  • Ideal for normal to oily skin
  • This matte foundation formula features micro-powders to control shine and blur pores.

Pros

  • Compared to my previous liquid foundation, this one is closer to my tone. Notice the difference in the photo below.

  • I only use a little of it and it’s definitely lightweight in that sense.
  • It can blur my reddish and dark acne marks.
  • It can also refine my large pores a bit.
  • My skin tone appears even with this.
  • Leaves a natural finish.
  • Doesn’t cause pimples.
  • Quick to dry and blendable (I apply it on my face with a brush and finish everything up with a dry triangular sponge.)
  • Easy to dispense

Cons

  • Not transfer-proof
  • It creases (when you take a very close look) when not topped with a setting powder.
  • Can control shine but not for a long time.

    As you can see, it gives me more pros than cons, so I didn’t regret buying this one. I might repurchase if I can’t find something a little bit better than this.
    Have you used this? How’s your experience?

  1. There is nothing worse than the eternal struggle of finding the perfect foundation. If it’s the perfect shade, then it’s usually the formula that’s off. If the formula is perfect, the shade match is off.
    This seems to be a good fit for you, though! It’s great that there are more pros than cons
