This foundation is FANTASTIC for sensitive oily skin! It is full-coverage and extremely light and flawless on the skin. The range of colors for lighter skin tones is perfect! Being extremely pale, they are one of the only drugstore foundation lines that carry a Porcelain shade that complements people with pink, blue, or yellow undertones. The foundation also works well when using makeup sponges, beauty-blenders, and even foundation brushes. Although the bottle size is on the smaller side, a little goes a long way! I only have to use a pea sized amount on my Real Techniques beauty sponge to cover my entire face and still get full coverage! Not to mention, this foundation is extremely affordable! I cannot say enough good things about this foundation! 5/5! ...read more

This is a very good foundation. I use the formula for combo/oily skin and it is EXTREMELY full coverage and long lasting on my oily skin. I set it with Rimmel Stay Matte powder and the combination of the two can last an entire school day with little to no blotting throughout the day. This foundation can get cakey fast however, so blending and thin layers are key. I apply this with a concealer brush in spots around my face and then blend it in with a dense flat top brush. It also will cling to dry patches and pronounce them, so make sure your skin is moisturized and exfoliated before using this. This foundation photographs very well, and there is no white cast. You absolutely must use a very good makeup remover to ensure your skin does not break out from this foundation (I have sensitive skin, and if I do not thoroughly cleanse my face after using this, it will break out), as it is a little difficult to remove, but that is because it is so long wearing! The finish is matte and I use the shade Sand Beige, which is a perfect shade match for me. I have a gripe about the packaging however, as a glass bottle is heavy and takes up a lot of space in my makeup bag and it is not very travel friendly. The cap of my bottle has also broken, so I am always scared of bringing it in my bag with me in case of spillage. Overall, this is the best full coverage foundation for oily skin that you will find at the drugstore.

I just bought this today looking for a new foundation and I am in love! This product is just amazing and a must have! I have an oily combination type skin and this product got rid of all of the shininess on my face without over drying it and left it with a matte finish! I also have a lot of reddish tones in my face and this really evened out my skin leaving a natural look which I love! I also love that this product does not have parabens in it and does not clog up my pores. This is not full coverage but I love it because it is very light and not cakey but lasts all day. I put this product to the test and wore through my martial arts class just to see if it would last and it did! Even after I was sweating and I was impressed! I just wish this product had a hand pump to it instead but that is okay. I will definitely be buying this product again and is definitely worth the 5 bucks! ...read more

This has grown to become one of my favorite foundations. I bought it on a whim and don't regret it. I have extremely dehydrated skin that becomes very oily during the day. While this didn't keep me super matte all day (nothing I have tried does) it stays well on my skin with a primer and at the end of the day my skin is slightly dewy looking. The shade 'wheat' matches my skin perfectly. ...read more

Flawless Fit!

I have a mixed ethnic background, which can make finding a foundation that is both quality and affordable, difficult. A couple days at the lake and my Samoan genes go from light to medium, meaning a complete foundation change as far as shade is concerned. This can happen a few times a year, and has really broken my bank in the past, foundation wise. I haven't bothered buying any foundation this summer, because of how drastically my tan took hold this time around. I didn't think I would find anything that would match me the way I needed it to, but lo and behold, the beautiful Fit Me Foundation VoxBox came calling!

This foundation is FANTASTIC. The best foundation I think I've ever used. I've paid upwards of nearly $50 before on foundations, but this one takes the cake. When applying my foundation (#222 True Beige), I could barely tell where my skin started and the foundation ended. The only changes that happened were the slight redness I have in my cheeks and a little splinter of discoloration near my mouth that looks a tiny bit like spider veins. I have pretty good skin, I consider myself lucky, but those two things leave me feeling a little insecure sometimes. This foundation completely changed that. It's a flawlessly smooth finish with a match that I've never found for my skin before. It's lightweight, not like other cake-y mess foundations that you can run into. Most of the day I forgot I was even wearing it. I recommend this foundation to anyone, who like me, has to buy several different shades throughout the year just to keep up, but really, this is a foundation ANYONE can use and find flawless too! It's affordable, easy to find and such a blessing! THANK YOU Influenster and Maybelline for giving this girl a reason to buy foundation again! ...read more
