Fit Me!

Me wearing Maybelline Fit Me line

Health and fitness is my beat but ya’ know one of the bonuses of losing weight and feeling good is also presenting my best face at all times. Please don’t get me wrong, I’ve always been one to make sure my “face” was put together, even at my heaviest I believed that my face should look good. Although I don’t always talk about it, I wear make-up daily and part of being healthy and feeling good is looking good. So, I’ll be sharing more of my beauty tips with you this year!

I’m going to start with foundation. When you wear the right foundation you help protect your skin from the elements, you provide a nice palate for the rest of the make-up you choose to wear and you enhance your natural beauty by evening out your skin tone. I generally spend the most money on my foundation because I have sensitive skin and don’t want to skimp when it comes to putting that first layer on.

I generally will spend between $35-45 on my foundation it lasts so I justify the cost but I’d love to have less expensive options that will complement my adult acne prone skin without causing breakouts. I’m happy to say that the new Maybelline Fit Me! line actually is fitting the bill! At only $6.99 for the foundation I admit I was skeptical. But I’ve been wearing the foundation for a couple of weeks, with no unusual breakouts and I’ve been complemented on my makeup more times than I can count!

Here is a video of me applying the foundation, it is available in 18 different shades in 100, 200, 300 range. I am in the 300 range and wear 350 Caramel. I like the line because once I found my shade I was guided to the concealer, powder, and blushes that paired with my shade.  It is so lightweight and gives my skin a flawless finish!

I really love the Fit Me! line by Maybelline and it is currently available at Walmart. I recently saw a commercial for it so I’m assuming it will be available at other retailers soon. My one constructive criticism about the line is that they need to expand it! For African-American women with darker skin tones there are currently no colors available. I really hope that the line is successful and expands so that more African American women can use it.

Disclosure: I am a Walmart mom and am given the opportunity to try different beauty products and write about my experience. I am compensated for my time (travel to store, making video, writing post, etc.) but as usual, all of my opinions are 100% my own.

You look fab! I'm so glad you did the tutorial, cause I don't know how to apply foundation. I've always just put on moisturizer with spf 30 and translucent powder, lipgloss and mascara.
