Beauty Find - Maybelline Fit Me! Matte + Poreless Foundation

If you have oily/combination skin and are looking for a reasonably priced foundation 
Maybelline Fit Me! Matte + Poreless Foundation may be just what you need.  

The newest in Maybelline's Fit Me!  line of makeup, this foundation does an excellent job of giving a smooth, naturally matte finish with medium-to-full coverage for an instantly pulled together look.

This is a thin, liquid foundation (in a glass bottle, FYI) that is smooth and lightweight to the touch.  It's also incredibly concentrated, so I used about a dime-sized amount for my face for med-full coverage.  What we so surprising what that as soon as I brushed and blended Maybelline Fit Me! Matte + Poreless it set immediately and with such a lightweight feel, that it was almost like I had nothing on. 

The finish was terrific.  It gave me a matte look, but not extremely flat, so it still looked natural (I would say this is a demi-matte finish).  As for the Poreless effect, I it did give a nice blurring/coverage effect on my nose area, which is where the pores are most apparent.

The color, Coconut, (shown, above), was a good match for me, although like few other Maybelline complexion products, it appeared at first on my skin to be way too orange.  However, seconds after blending it out, it matched my skin very well.  (However, they could certainly expand the line with a few further darker shades.)  

I got very good results using a foundation brush, as well as my favorite, BECCA The One Perfecting Brush.  If you prefer using a makeup sponge, I also found it worked well with the Beauty Blender.  This is buildable to a full coverage, and with a few layers, most average skin imperfections and discolorations really do get covered up completely.  I only had to use a touch of foundation under my eyes after applying the foundation.

The coverage was very good throughout the day, and I had to only blot minimally along my t-zone about 1x in the afternoon.  I like that there was oil control, but it didn't make my drier areas look or feel dry or flaky.  This is why for this price, it's such a dream Foundation for for combination skin.  I had no foundation smudging, fading or transfer for the entire day.

If you want your skin to look pulled together with minimal shine and a natural look, Maybelline Fit Me! Matte + Poreless Foundation is a fantastic option at a great price.
