Maybelline Review: Fit Me Foundation + Lash Sensational Mascara

Tuesday, February 10, 2015

It's beauty Tuesday! 








Today, I'm bringing you guys a review of two new Maybelline products.

The first one is the Fit Me foundation, which has a matte and poreless finish. I was seeing this foundation a lot on my Instagram feed from a lot of different girls so I decided to give it a try myself. Whenever I see the word "matte" I'm already sold lol. I always look for any types of matte finishes because my skin is oily so I don't need a dewy finish. I bought mine at Harmon's for $6.29.

The other Maybelline product I picked up was the lash sensational mascara. I picked that up at Harmon's as well, for 6.99. I'm not big on trying so many different mascaras because once I found my holy grail mascara (The Great Lash by Maybelline as well) I've been using it for years. To this day, I have yet to find something else that comes close to it. However, when I saw the brush style and it was Maybelline brand, I said "what the heck, let's give it try."

So let's review these babies!





Let's start off with the foundation... 

It comes in about 11 different shades, with my color being #330 Toffee Caramel. I used a real technique brush to apply it. When I first applied it, it applied super smooth and buffed in my skin right away. One thing I recommend is to use it in sections on your face instead of your whole face right away because it dries pretty quickly. It seriously goes to work right away.

I loved that it dried right away. It felt smooth and very matte. I almost felt like I wasn't wearing anything on my face. It felt super lightweight and breathable. That's perfect for the warmer months, so I will definitely include this one in my spring and summer foundation rotation. Overall, I would recommend this foundation if you're looking for a very lightweight feel, good coverage and  a matte finish.
I was currently using the Maybelline mousse foundation but this one is my new favorite and I will be be using it more every day.


I decided to test this foundation a little further. I took this picture with my iPhone, hence why the quality of the picture looks different. I took this picture 3 1/2 hours after I had first applied it with my full make up on and my face was not greasy. Within 2-3 hours I already have to dab my face with a blotting sheet because my skin gets super oily. I LOVE that, 3 1/2 hours later, it still looked and felt matte. That's a big plus in my book. 




Now let's talk about the mascara...

It comes in 3 different shades: blackest black, brown black, and very black. I chose very black because I personally like dark black lashes. I like that the brush was long and curvy and that really helped me pick up all the lashes in one scoop.
In just a few applications my lashes went va va voom.


  







I must say it surely tripled my lashes and they appered thick and full of volume. The only downside is taking it off. It is made with a waterproof formula so it's not as easy to take off as regular mascara. I would wear this one more for a night out versus an everyday one. 

Maybelline, you guys did good with these two products! They were inexpensive and did it's job. I'm one happy girl.
