In Detail Maybelline Fit Me Shine Free Stick Foundation Review, Swatches, Demo and My Experience
Maybelline has recently launched a lot of products in the Indian market. I won’t say they are all new since a few of them were already available in the international market. However, it’s just that now they are officially available in Indian market as well.
I’m going to review one such product today- Maybelline Fit Me Foundation Stick. When I saw this on one of the online cosmetic stores, I immediately grabbed it and here is my review for the same.
The product comes in a roll-on black tube with transparent cover. It’s a very nice and sturdy packaging. It can be easily carried around in your handbag without worrying. Especially for ladies like me with dry skin, this will be really helpful as we can do touch-ups on the go now. Considering powder only makes our skin drier.
The foundation has two products in the form of concentric circles. The inner core is the anti-shine powder core while the outer one is the foundation. This makes it different from other foundation sticks available in market.
Now talking about texture, I am flattered. The texture is very similar to Lakmé 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation. It’s very light on skin and makes it feather soft. I really like the way my skin felt after its application. The product blends very easily and effortlessly. I tried half face with a makeup sponge and other half with a stippling brush and both sides blended seamlessly.
Coverage of this foundation is light to medium only. Though I feel this will work great with a concealer or as an everyday foundation. This product is meant for combination skin as well as claims to be shine free. Hence, I tried to use it without setting with a powder. In fact, I am quite happy with the result as it neither made my skin dry nor oily.
At the time of writing this review, I am still wearing the foundation. I wore it at about 1 pm and its 7 pm now, and the product is still on. Though I think ladies with oily skin will need to give it a touch up in between or may not last this long.
I did not have high hopes with this product as I have dry skin type. But I am quite happy with the results, especially now that I can do touch-ups wherever I want.
Also, I am not very sure why Maybelline launches only limited shades for each product in India. The range has a total of eight shades while only five are launched in India. Overall, I will say the product is worth it and a must have for all beauty junkies looking for everyday medium coverage foundation.

Cons of Maybelline Fit Me Shine Free Stick Foundation
1. Only limited number of shades launched in India
2. The product will get over quickly compared to a liquid foundation
3. Coverage is not very great
Will I buy Again?
Absolutely Yes. After a long time I have found a foundation to do justice to my skin without making it too dry or oily. For everyday use, this is a great product.
I would suggest setting it with a powder for oily skinned ladies. Also, if you have spots or blemishes on skin, use a concealer before or after the foundation as this won’t give you much coverage.
