This foundation promises a lot. Lots of my fellow agents (aka beauty bloggers) have reviewed it and loved it. In short? This foundation is EVERYWHERE and has loads of hype. After hearing so much about it, I decided to finally ask this foundation in for an interview- it said it would be a good ally to me, so let’s see if it lives up to that promise.
Before asking the foundation in for an interview, I had a look at its resume, or as some people like to call it, packaging.
- To erase all your pores and imperfections, while highlighting the things that are best about your face
- To look really natural
- To ‘fit you’ and your face, no matter what, explaining the ‘Fit Me’ name. (Fit me baby one more tiiimmmeee…)
- Cheap yet great quality
After reading this, I was sceptical- could it really do all that? But I was looking for something that could because I need an amazing ally. Here’s how the interview went, full of nothing but truths…
Hatsy: So… what will you do for my skin?
Foundation: I will give coverage and a nice glow to your skin, making it nice and even and with a good matte finish.
Hatsy: I’d like to draw on the ‘matte’ part… Do you realise that this is a slightly ‘anti-matte’ agency? Do you realise that this agency’s main goal is to fight dryness (a common trait with matte products), irritation and matte lipstick?
Foundation: Well, to tell you the truth, I’m not as matte as you would think. When applying me, I’m incredibly dewy and the exact opposite of matte- really easy to apply and very hydrating. After I dry, I will become a little more matte and have a slightly dryer touch- but not as matte as some other agents and my resume have made out. Of course, if you want to have a dewier and smooth look, you can sign up with my sister, Maybelline Fit Me! Foundation Dewy + Smooth.
Hatsy: Interesting. I didn’t know you had a follow-up product.
Foundation: Well, I’ve found that most agencies prefer matte.
Hatsy: What kind of coverage will you give me?
Foundation: My resume says that I will give medium coverage, and I give around that. I will be able to even out most of your imperfections, but that freckle on your right cheek you have been battling for years? I can’t fix that.
Hatsy: I thought as much. Will you look natural, though?
Foundation: I will. I will highlight all your amazing features and cover up all the things you’re not proud of, and feel a bit like a second, natural skin.
Hatsy: Do you think every single reader of my blog will benefit from it?
Foundation: Not to brag, but yes. I think that even dry skinned people can wear this with confidence, but if they have insanely patchy skin, I recommend my cousin candidate, Maybelline Fit Me! Foundation Regular- not matte or dewy, just in the middle. If you work well with that, Then you can move on to Matte + Poreless. If that makes your skin look like a rumpled bit of paper, then you can go back to the regular foundation.
Hatsy: You’re hired!
This is definitely my favourite agent in the agency (my makeup bag) so far, and I am raving about it to all my friends and family. It’s definitely a great candidate for your agency too!
