I had the supreme pleasure of getting some fabulous beauty goodies from Marcelle Cosmetics to try out. I am very excited to play with their new lipsticks and liquid eyeliner pens that are in hues so perfect for the upcoming spring season. As you may have noticed, I love me some bright colours (on the eyes AND on the lips) so I thought I’d give myself a little spring flavour to get me geared for the upcoming balmy weather.

new: maybelline fit me foundation

 

A few weeks ago I was working with a fellow makeup artist and she raved about the new Fit Me Foundation by Maybelline. She was wearing it that day and it looked absolutely flawless on her. I knew that I had to at least try it out, and so my story begins…

I picked up a bottle of this foundation at my local Shoppers Drug Mart and was pleased to see that it was on sale for just under $9. (Bonus!) I swatched a few shades on myself until I found my match – 125 Nude Beige. The next day I decided to take it for a test drive and wore it to work. My skin at the moment is normal to dry and the first thing I noticed was how the foundation felt on my face. It had great slip, hydrated me and was so easy to blend. If your skin is more oil-rich, you may not particularly like this formula unless you use a setting powder to help absorb the excess “dew”. The formula is a medium coverage and it has an SPF of 18 which is also great protection and peace of mind when you are wearing it on the go.

At the end of the work day, this foundation was still looking great. I am very impressed at this new formula by Maybelline. Not just for a drugstore brand, but overall, I think it holds its own amongst even high end foundations on the market at the moment.

I would definitely repurchase this.

Here is what it looked like on my skin. Please note that the coverage was nice. It evened out my slightly ruddy skin.
