It’s finally March! Which means it is almost time for me to say goodbye to my beloved matte look and go back to my first true love, dewy foundations. Being a Florida girl through and through a dewy skin like finish my favorite because it fits the weather and doesn’t have me looking too made up in the warm months. Luckily, Maybelline sent me a new foundation to try out just in time for the summer, the Fit Me Dewy Smooth finish.
I want to get this out of the way first, I am not a fan of the shade I received. I got soft honey, and it’s just on the pale side. It’s not awful I just know that by the time April hits this will not be my shade, which is why I try to consider that when i buy foundations. It’s almost too light even without a tan. But, that’s honestly just a flaw of using picture to shade match rather than being able to swatch.
This product came with a primer, and I love it. It has a gel like consistency but its not too thick and it feels great on the skin I would actually like to try it with some of my other foundations.
Application & Finish
This applies better with a sponge than with a brush, it kind of looks streaky with a brush. I used a Real Techniques sponge and the finish looked gorgeous. It isn’t as dewy as I usually wear but it looks like skin.
It lasted okay, I am not the best at judging this because I’m not the type to need my makeup to stay in place from morning to night.
I am not in total love, but for $7.99 its worth a try. The shade probably has me a little biased to the rest of the product anyway. It looks great on, the finish is gorgeous, and it’s affordable which is a win for me. However, I honestly think the primer is a must try.
Have you tried this product? If not what’s your favorite drug store foundation?
