Review with Before and After Photos: Maybelline Fit Me! Shine Free Foundation Stick

Sometimes I try a new makeup product and I’m really WOWed with how well it works for me. The Maybelline Fit Me! Shine Free Foundation in 130 Buff Beige is one of those products.

maybelline fit me foundation stickThe Maybelline Fit Me! Shine Free Foundation Stick is literally the easiest foundation I’ve ever used. I have fun applying it, usually drawing some cat whiskers on myself for coverage near my nose and cheeks, and swipe once across my forehead, chin, and bridge of my nose. I then blend it in to my skin with my hands. Blending is so effortless. You would think it would have a creamy texture but it really feels like powder going over your skin. It’s wonderful! You can get all levels of coverage with the foundation stick while still achieving that “barely there” makeup look. It doesn’t look heavy or cakey at all. I haven’t tried applying it over concealed areas but considering the smooth texture I don’t think it would be a problem.

I’m seriously in love with Maybelline Fit Me! Shine Free Foundation Stick, bottom line. It’s so easy and perfect for my busy mornings (I seem to have less and less time to get ready every day…) and it’s great for on-the-go. You don’t have to worry about the mess of using a liquid foundation or juggling brushes. This foundation did an amazing job at holding the oil that usually shows up in my T-zone at bay all day. I actually get excited to use this in the morning. I still switch to my liquid foundations for drier days, but this is climbing the ranks of becoming my favorite foundation! I do wish the price was a tad cheaper since I feel like I’m going to wear this stick down quickly.

Available in 12 shades at Walmart, $6.94.

    Hi Miranda,

    Just saw your link on Never say die beauty and thought I’d come over to check out your review on the Fit me stick foundation. I received a sample from Target, but it wasn’t enough to try on my face (only my hand). So glad to read your review .. I may try this out.
