Usually launch of new lipsticks make me all happy & excited. But when I saw Maybelline Fit Me Shine-Free Foundation online , I knew I have to have this. It was part of Maybelline Fall 2013 , but it is permanent and now easily available all over Pakistan.
Maybelline Fit Me Shine Free Stick Foundation The first of its kind – lightweight gel stick foundation with an anti-shine powder core. Our first gel stick foundation with an anti-shine core Fresh gel foundation blends to a natural matte finish Lightweight powders in the anti-shine core instantly dissolve excess oil. It’s one-step perfection.
Maybelline Fit Me Shine-Free Foundation comes in 12 Oil free shades and i have one in Natural Beige #220. It is a pretty nice match for my NC35 skintone, and since it is sheer,It will suit anyone between NC30-35. The packaging is its main selling point, Its chic and very eye catching. It comes in a chubby swivel up tube,with the gel foundation stick and an anti-shine serum core (the center).The glide texture glides effortlessly like cream and blends to a natural matte powder finish.It is very lightweight and blends easily. The coverage is definitely sheer, It cover up the pigmentation or any redness slightly but not completely. You can build up the coverage but it can accentuate dry patches. It doesn't look cakey at all, The finish is more of semi matte instead of full on matte like Rimmel stay mattemousse liquid foundation.I personally prefer medium-full coverage foundations, so i wasn't so wow'ed by it. But if you prefer sheer coverage and want a foundation which stays matte /oil free for 4-5 hours. you'll love it. I am combination skin and i felt by the end of day my face was bit shiny and i needed to dust some powder. But i love how comfortable it feels on the skin. In winters my skin become little more on the dry side, so i am hoping that this will work better in hot summer days.

Overall: I loved how effortlessly Maybelline Fit Me Shine Free Stick Foundation applies but personally I prefer medium-full coverage foundations, so i wasn't so wow'ed by it. But if you prefer sheer coverage and semi matte foundation.,then probably you'll love it. I am combination skin and i felt by the end of day my face was bit shiny. If you are looking for a a full coverage , matte foundation try Rimmel stay matte liquid mousse foundation, Which i personally love .
