Review for: Classic Ivory more...
This product it probably the cheapest foundation i have ever bought! I tend to have really oily skin that gets shiny after maybe 2 hours which i hate. Those oil blotting sheets are literally my best friend. So I’m always looking a for a matte foundation that is good for oily skin and i have heard nothing but good reviews for this product. I like to watch a lot of YouTube videos and was shocked by how many beauty gurus use this product, so i had to give this product a try.Coverage-This foundation is liquid based, which I find for me not the best for oily skin. It is VERY similar to Revlon colorstay foundation. Same consistency. The coverage is buildable to full coverage. You do not need much also which is why it lasts for a long time. 2 months and still not close to being done and I wear makeup almost everyday.

Review for: Classic Ivory more...
This foundation is great for the money and perfect for a daily foundation! I decided to try this out since I've heard so much about it, and I can't really say I'm disappointed. Here's why:

Pros: Coverage is awesome! The medium coverage looks very natural, and it's buildable to make a flawless full and NATURAL coverage look without being cakey. It doesn't melt off my face, and it helps blur pores with and without a primer, which is essential for anyone! The foundation also will not separate on your face. Oh, and their range of colors is awesome! I was able to find one to match my skin tone EXACTLY to where the natural oxidation didn't make me look dark.

Cons: Drugstore foundations aren't always going to be meant to last, and this one falls into that category. My makeup doesn't melt off, but it loses its "fresh" look pretty quickly. It comes off with blotting my face (since my skin still gets oily with using this) more than nicer foundations will. Even though it doesn't separate, it loses the coverage after a while.

Overall, this is great for the price and easy to work with for anyone. I do have to use a few extra products if I need it to look perfect all day, but that's what my prestige foundation is for. Give it a chance!!!

Review for: Mocha more...
I definitely have a love-hate relationship with this foundation. Finding my shade was fairly easy, at Ulta when I did a swatch check, it went well. (I bought this foundation specifically for my prom look) The day of prom however, Minor problems started arise while using this. 1) A little goes a L....O....N....G way. My first time using it, I put too much on my beauty sponge and figured I could just use the blender to “blend” until even coverage.... BEEEEP WRONG! I just looked like someone smothered chocolate syrup all over my face And missed many spots, NOT CUTE. So I washed off and tried again. 2) it was kind of hard to wash off. It left a little film of residue that was kind of tight on my face but it was easy to ignore. I tried again and I came up with an idea to break the foundation up by adding some lotion so it’s more sheer. This was an amazing idea and I was satisfied with the amount of coverage. Ladies, if you want a naturally glam makeup look without looking too cakey , I suggest giving this idea a try. Now beware, because this foundation is supposed to keep you matte, the lotion adds just a tad bit of oil shine, as it did throughout my prom night. The picture I added was towards the end of prom with no blotting session the WHOLE night( and it was getting hot on the dance floor). All in all, this is a pretty decent and affordable foundation. #Irecommendit

Review for: Warm Honey more...
I use Warm Honey (322). I like my foundations to be a shade darker than my actual skin color because my setting powder and concealer evens out my complexion once it is all put on. So this review is based on 2 months of wear. Since it has been 2 months so far, I feel like my review will be fair. I switch between drug store and high end foundations and wanted to give this foundation a try due to the hype it is given as well as it catering to give a matte and poreless finish, which is what I look for in my foundations. I am extremely oily with large pores. 

Shade range-Good enough for a drug store brand. I usually do not have issues finding foundations catering to my skin tone (yellow,medium, tan, olive skin). Since I cant swatch appropriately with drug store makeup, I went with my usual choices of warm honey,tan beige types. 

Coverage-This foundation is liquid based, which I find for me not the best for oily skin. It is VERY similar to Revlon colorstay foundation. Same consistency. The coverage is buildable to full coverage. You do not need much also which is why it lasts for a long time. 2 months and still not close to being done and I wear makeup almost everyday.

Price-I bought this at Target for $8, very inexpensive, so it is worth the buy.

End Review: When I run out of this foundation, I would most likely purchase this again. For me though, this will not be a holy grail product. I do think it is a really good drugstore foundation that can give off high end benefits. For its matte and pore-less statements, if you wear this foundation with primer, setting powder, setting spray, concealer, powder, it will give a matte and pore-less look, but without it is a no. I still become oily and with pores in the end. This is a drugstore dupe for Estee Lauder Doublewear!!!

Review for: 112 Natural Ivory more...
I have a love-hate relationship with this foundation. I like the shade variety, coverage, and matteness but hate the way it looks on my skin.

Shade variety: The shade variety of this product is AMAZING. I always seem to a be shade in between the palest and the next one up, and I always have to mix my foundations or buy expensive luxury beauty foundation that has more variety. I was able to find my shade in this foundation, which is almost a miracle.

Coverage and consistency: The coverage of this foundation is medium to light. It does an okay job of covering up my acne and redness without making my skin look completely flat. I also think it does help minimize pores and most definitely is matte. However, because this is a liquid foundation (and a rather thin one) , I feel like my beauty blender sucks up a lot of the product and I use more than I actually need to.

How it looks on my skin: I have combination skin, with my most oily areas being my T-zone. This foundation makes that area look GREAT, however it emphasizes dryness on other areas of my face, like my cheeks and around my noses and makes my face look rough and patchy. I do understand that this is an issue with most matte foundations, so I don't necessarily hold it against this foundation, it's just something to be aware of! I can fix this issue by using a hydrating primer, so not a completely bad thing.

Overall: Good coverage and I love the shade range. Recommend if you have oily skin, however if you have combination skin with dry areas, might want to avoid or use a hydrating primer.

Review for: Classic Ivory more...
I tried the Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless Foundation in the shade 120 Classic Ivory. I went through a whole bottle of this foundation, and although I liked it, I have not repurchased it again so far.
As a little background, I have oily skin with acne, blackheads/whiteheads, large pores, acne scarring, and a few sun spots/freckles. I usually get very oily by the end of the day, so I am always on the hunt for a foundation that keeps my oil at bay and minimizes my pores while also having great coverage but still looking natural. 
I have a fair/light complexion and a neutral skin tone. I often find many foundations to look too orange on me, but I also think cool toned foundations look too pink/grey on me, so I try to find more neutral shades. The shade Cassic Ivory seemed to blend pretty well into the skin tone on my neck. I applied this product with both a beauty blender sponge and a brush, and I prefer the finish produced with the sponge.
I did not find that this foundation minimized my pores to a large extent, but it did give a nice natural finish with medium to buildable coverage. I would often wear this foundation to work and it did not look so unnatural and cake-facey. However, I would notice that by the end of the day I would still look oily even if I set the foundation with powder and setting spray, and it would start looking cakey on my nose, around my nose, and on my chin by the end of the day. 
All in all, this was a pretty good foundation, but I don't think it does wonders for oily skin like it suggests. I think this would better suit individuals with normal to combination skin very well.

Review for: Natural Tan, Soft Tan more...
The five-stars I am giving this product should not make you think this is up there with high-end products. I'm comparing  cost + amount + volume + longevity + overall performance compared to its competition within its price range and retail channel. It's silly to compare a $7.00 foundation to $100 foundations.

BUT -- I have both, and I still choose Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless once in awhile! I tend to be someone who doesn't wear the same foundation daily. It depends on multiple factors -- like where I'm going, how long I'll be out, how hot/cold it is outside, how much sun will I be getting, how my skin is doing, and whether I need to cover disgusting eruptions on my face, or if it's smooth as a baby's butt. I imagine this is how you choose your foundation too -- but if not, well. this is how I do it.

First, this foundation dries FAST. This is really not the right foundation to dab all over your face and then go back and blend in. No, if you put it on your face, immediately blend it in or it ain't blending, so do a portion at a time.

Second, oily-skin ladies -- well, this is for you. As I have dry skin now, I need to do a lot of prep work to be able to wear this well, but for those of you who have oily skin and need to constantly powder your face -- this should be your holy grail if you can find your shade. I fluctuate between soft and natural tan on this, most often just mixing them up 1:1. 

Lastly, dry skin ladies -- I use about 3-4 moisturizers before I apply this one. I like it, so I continue to use it on occasion, but when I do, I am doing the entire toner + serums + moisturizers + more moisturizers routine, and then also sitting around for 30 minutes to let it absorb before putting this one. It's not the application that's the problem -- in fact, it looks beautiful when applied. It's that 30 minutes later, I feel like I'm getting a facelift without anesthesia as my skin begins to tighten and then dry like a prune. If I wear this amount of moisturizer, I can make it a good 3-5 hours, but this is not the foundation I choose when I'll be at work all day long, or if I have a long night out for this reason.

The coverage is actually quite nice. It's a medium coverage, in my mind, and buildable up to two layers at best. It's not going to cover up everything, but it will even out your skin tone. The one ding is that it doesn't really "fill" your pores as some foundations will do to some degree, and on some occasions, especially if I am using it without a primer, I feel my pores look more emphasized than minimized. I'm not sure what causes that, so I won't ding the foundation specifically for it.

Oh, and for shades -- while I have only tried 2-3 shades of this, be forewarned that the colors seem to default to an undertone of yellow and/or orange (the darker you go). For instance, "Soft Tan" is probably too yellow for any of you who have really pink undertones unless that is what you're looking for. At "Natural Tan," a slight orange hue begins to show, but because the foundation is so matte, it doesn't look bad.

But for the price, for the quantity, for the quality, and for doing what it claims, I can't help but give this 5-stars. I think it's a great offering  to the budget-conscious line, and in many ways, performs like a high end foundation. It doesn't "last" as long as many others, but for most average occasions -- the Fit Me is pretty outstanding -- especially if you have oily skin!

Review for: Buff Beige more...
I bought this foundation because everyone was raving about it on YouTube and was so disappointed. It may be a good foundation for a lot of people, but it really did not work for me. I have combination skin and found that this became dry and patchy on certain areas of my face and caked up around my nose. It made me look like I was wearing an excessive, unnatural amount of makeup.

It was slightly better applied with a damp beauty sponge than a foundation brush. The sponge applied like medium coverage, but I got pretty full coverage from brush application. Both were applied over a Maybelline primer.

It also oxidized a TON so the Buff Beige I bought, which is normally in the range of colors that work for me, ended up about 2 shades too dark after I applied it. If you are going to try this foundation, buy it lighter than you normally do!

This is NOT a good foundation for people with really dry skin.

It gets amazing reviews, so I think for most skin types, and at such an affordable price, it's worth a try, but it wasn't a good fit for me at all. I gave it to a friend and she also found that it darkened significantly after it was applied, but she did like the formula.

Review for: 112 Natural Ivory more...
This is a great product for anyone looking for coverage on a budget. It's perfect for anyone with oily skin, which I know I have an issue with, and has the staying power to last all day. The coverage is build-able which makes it great for anyone who may not know exactly what they are doing in their makeup yet.
I honestly found this product looking for something that would give me coverage to simply balance my skin and as a good entry level foundation, as I am not great with makeup. I found this product on many bloggers "best drugstore foundations" lists and I was not let down. 
I was initially worried to use this product as I have sensitive skin, but it did great things for my skin and I haven't noticed any extra breakouts since I've started using it. I was also concerned because I have a very light colored skin. I normally find myself looking like a ghost, or looking orange, because I have a hard time finding matching shades. This color was the perfect match and blends into the skin wonderfully!
Really I am in love with this foundation now! I'm almost through my first bottle and will be going back for more as this seems to be the best bang for my buck!

Review for: Classic Ivory, Porcelain more...
This product is kind of mixed opinions for me. This bottle has 1FL Oz, like most foundation bottles, so it does have a good amount especially for the price I paid under 10.00 for this product. There is a good range of colors with this foundation so I think just anyone could find there right shade, so that is a plus, but in my opinion this is great if you are in a hurry and just need something lightweight and seamless. I would deff recomend d this if you dont like a more full coverage to me this is light to medium coverage. It does not state that it is full coverage though. It is a very natural matte fondation but it really didnt cover anything and for me was good for an everyday wear but it's not my favorite.i tried to build this foundation.and it did look a lot better after a second application. I have tried with a brush and sponge and have come to find using a brush just moves this product around to much and a sponge would be the best to apply this with. It's for normal to oily skin but in my opinion I have combo skin and I dont think it really matters what skin type you have this just layer nice and sets down great just not enough coverage for me as stated before. If you like more full coverage this wouldnt be for you.
