We all know about Maybelline Fit Me range that is one the recent launches in India. Shade range was disappointing, however since I love to burn a hole in my pocket, I picked the entire range. Maybelline Fit Me Foundation was launched in Matte & Poreless variant which wasn’t a perfect formula for me. Though the Maybelline Fit Me Set + Smooth Pressed Powder is formulated for Normal To Dry Skin so I picked it.
Packaging – Simple square case which resembles a box. It has product in one compartment and Powder puff in second compartment, that has a mirror as well.
Shade – As the shade range is pretty limited (only 4 shades) I picked the darkest one – Sun Beige 310, which is still way too light.
Texture & Formula – Maybelline Fit Me Set + Smooth Pressed Powder has a light texture which is finely milled. I am quite impressed with the finish which doesn’t look powdery or cakey. Only and biggest downside is the shimmer particles, yes silver shimmers in pressed powder. When I applied it for the first time, I thought my brush has blush residue on it. But upon looking closely in the pan, I could see silver shimmers, which wasn’t visible when I swatched it in the store or I wouldn’t have picked it at all.
If you are fine with shimmer in setting powder, then give this one a try.
Coverage – Powder offers light coverage, which makes it a good makeup setting powder. You can also use it to set under eye concealer , because it shimmer particles will reflect light and brighten up the area. That’s what I am using it for.
The formula is meant for normal to dry skin hence it doesn’t highlight dry patches or turn cakey on the face. I generally go very light handed when it comes to powder application in any case. I would have appreciated more darker shades though.
Maybelline Fit Me Set + Smooth Pressed Powder (Rs 475) available online
Maybelline Fit Me Set + Smooth Pressed Powder is finely milled formula, which doesn’t look powdery and blends into the skin. It offers light coverage and is perfect for setting makeup. Though I dislike the presence of shimmer in the powder, its absolutely unnecessary in my opinion.
