Hi my angels, I did a Maybelline FIT Me Range Haul sometime back and have been loving the products so far. I have become so fond of the Maybelline FIT Me Matte and Poreless foundation that I am almost always reaching for it whenever I put makeup on. It’s giving a close competition to my all time favourite foundation which is the L’oreal true match. I chose a nude blush shade today because I wanted things to be really subtle in these summers. Of course I love playing with colours, but I felt like I really needed to try this particular shade. So let’s move on and go through the Maybelline Fit Me Blush Medium Nude 208 Review, Swatches.

In Detail Maybelline Fit Me Blush Medium Nude 208 Review, Swatches and My Experience
The Maybelline FIT Me blush comes in a beautiful compact see through packaging. Maybelline only launched 3 shades of the FIT Me blushes in India. These the medium shades – Medium Coral, Medium Pink and Medium Nude. I am not sure why do they not launch the complete set of shades in a country where there are women of every skin tone. The blush also comes with a tiny brush applicator. I did take the applicator out and tried, but it seemed too tiny and bristles were not so smooth. Moreover, I have better blush brushes to do the job.
The Fit Me Medium Nude blush is a subtle natural shade with peachy undertones and silvery highlights. This is a perfect blush when you want to go for a natural or nude makeup look. Because it has sufficient highlights, one can skip applying a highlighter separately. This has just the right amount of highlights which makes it suitable for day wear as well. The texture of the blush is extremely finely milled and smooth. Though I find it a tad bit powdery, there is not really any fall out. The colour pay off of the blush is average. Once you blend it properly the shades kind of looks like its loosing its intensity as you can see in the swatches below. You can always build up the intensity if you want but I was expecting a better colour pay off to be honest.
Though I really want to like this blush because of its gorgeous shade and highlights, I do not find myself reaching out for it very often as the staying power of the blush is quite a let down. After applying it, this starts losing its colour intensity within 1-2 hours. After 4-5 hours, its barely noticeable on me. This is when I stay in air conditioned environment through out. I wonder how long is it going to stay in the outside temperate.
Overall I think though this blush has a very light weight and wearable formula. It does not stand upto the mark when it comes to staying power and colour intensity. Also I really wish they had launched all the shades in India specially deep ones. They would have been a complete hit for the common Indian skin tones.
