Maybelline Fit Me foundation - review & wear test

July 05, 2017


Today I have a long awaited review on Maybelline Fit Me foundation. I know you waited for what now seems like forever, but here on BW blog we do it right - I was testing it out for a few months and now I can tell you if I like it or not, what exactly I do or don't like and some other things I wouldn't be able to know if I only used it once or twice. You know what I mean - you just can't use a product once and write a review. This is the "first impression" then, not a review.

But, this won't only be a review, but also a "wear test". I will wear it for hours, tell you how does it wear and take photos to show you. So lets get started...
________________________________________________________________________________

Danas ti napokon pišem dugo očekivanu recenziju Maybelline Fit Me tekućeg pudera. Znam da si dugo čekala recenziju, ali ovdje na BW blogu mi to radimo kako treba - isprobavala sam ga nekoliko mjeseci i sad ti točno mogu reći da li mi se sviđa ili ne, što mi se sviđa, a što ne i slične stvari koje ne bih mogla znati da sam ga koristila jednom ili dva puta. Znaš na što mislim, ne možeš proizvod probati jednom i napisati recenziju. To su onda "prvi dojmovi", a ne recenzija.

No, ovo neće biti samo recenzija, već i "wear test" kroz koji ću testirati i slikati kako se puder ponaša i kako izgleda nakon višesatnog nošenja. Pa krenimo...

Maybelline says that this foundation is for combination to oily skin, that mattifies and refiner pores, matches skin tone and texture and has a natural, seamless finish. Maybe you will wonder why did I buy it if I have dry to combination skin. Well, now that is summer, if I spend some time outside, my forehead and my nose gets a bit oily, so I wanted to test it out.

It claims it it oil free and gives you natural matte finish. But, this is a silicone based foundation, so it can clog your pores, even though it says "non - comedogenic. Keep that in mind. You can also read the ingredients here...
________________________________________________________________________________

Maybelline kaže da je ovaj puder za mješovitu do masnu kožu, matira i čini pore manje vidljivima, prilagođava se tenu i teksturi kože te ima prirodan finiš. Možda ćeš se zapitati zašto sam ga uzela kada imam suhu do mješovitu kožu. Kad je ljeto, čelo i nos mi se znaju zamastiti ako provodim duže vrijeme vani, pa sam ga željela isprobati.

Kažu da ne sadrži ulja i da pruža prirodan mat finiš. Ipak, ovo je puder koji sadrži bazi silikon, što znači da je potencijalno komedogen, iako posebno naglašavaju da nije, pa imaj to na umu. Također, možeš pročitati i sastav ovdje...

I like this tube packaging, the opening is small enough to push just the right amount of the product out, but it is very liquidy. As soon as you swatch it on your hand, you can see it is very thin, spreads out weirdly on the skin and separates. But, when you smudge it a bit, it is not that noticable.

And yes, the shade seems too light for me, but my hands are much darker than my face and chest now (I usually don't tan my face like... ever).
________________________________________________________________________________

Volim ova pakiranja kao tubice, otvor je dovoljno malen da ne izleti hrpa proizvoda odjednom, ali je jako tekući. Već pri samom swatchanju na ruci možeš vidjeti da je rijedak, nekako se čudno razvlači po koži i razdvaja. Ipak, kada ga razmažeš, nije toliko primetno. 

I da, nijansa se čini presvijetla za mene jer su mi ruke tamnije od lica (lice ne sunčam skoro pa nikada).

Now when we talked about that technical stuff, lets get on to applying it and the wear test.

First of all, this is what my skin looks like without any makeup. I took close ups too and didn't photoshop anything, so you can see exactly in what condition it is. You can click on the photo and then zoom some more if you want to see all of my pores :).

That morning, washed my face with L'oreal Men Expert Black Charcoal wash and applied Kiehl's Ultra facial cream (I don't skip cleansing and moisturizing my skin in the morning and in the evening).
________________________________________________________________________________

Sad kad smo riješili ovaj tehnički dio, idemo na nanošenje i wear test. 

Najprije, ovako moja koža izgleda bez trunke šminke. Slikala sam se izdaleka i izbliza, fotke nisam fotošpirala, tako da realno vidiš kakvo je stanje. Možeš kliknuti na sliku i onda dodatno zumirati ako te zanima svaka moja pora :).

Lice sam to jutro očistila L'oreal Men Expert Black Charcoal wash i nanijela Kiehl's Ultra facial cream (čišćenje i hidratiziranje lica ujutro, kao ni navečer, ne preskačem).

As far as the application goes, I will apply the foundation as I apply every other foundation - first I go in with the brush (I used Morphe M439 - short dense brush that gives you fuller coverage), and then I go over with damp beauty sponge in tapping motion, to help blend everything even more and to soak up extra product if there is any (Real Techniques mini sponge).
________________________________________________________________________________

Što se tiče samog nanošenja, puder ću nanijeti kao što nanosim i svaki drugi - prvo kistom (koristila sam Morphe M439 - gusto zbijeni kist koji pruža dobro prekrivanje), te na kraju tapkam lice vlažnom beauty spužvicom kako bih sve blendala i pokupila eventualni višak pudera s kože (Real Techniques mini spužvica).

As I like to test out the claims that the product is matte, but also the long wearing claims, on the left side of my face I will use mattifying primer - Catrice Prime and Fine Smoothing refiner primer. I like it and I've been using it for a long time, it does mattify the skin and prolongs the wear time.

On the right side of my face I will use illuminating primer - Catrice Beautifying primer. It is a good primer, but I don't use it with matte foundations because the illuminating properties can't be seen underneath the matte foundation. But, I will make an exception here because I'm curious to see how the foundation will preform over different types of primers.
________________________________________________________________________________

Nadalje, kako volim testirati i ove tvrdnje da je proizvod mat, ali i dugotrajnost, na svojoj lijevoj strani lica ću koristiti matirajući primer i to Catrice Prime and Fine Smoothing refiner primer. Ovaj primer volim i koristim ga već dugo, matira mi lice i produljuje trajanje šminke.

Na svojoj desnoj strani lica ću pak koristiti iluminirajući primer - Catrice Beautifying primer. Primer je dobar, ali ga ne koristim uz matirajuće pudere jer se ta "iluminacija" kože kroz njih ne može vidjeti. Ipak, ovdje radim iznimku jer me zanima kako će se puder ponašati preko različitih primera.

I applied the foundation around 3:30pm and it looked like this (I am wearing the foundation only):
________________________________________________________________________________

Puder sam nanijela oko 15:30 sati te je izgledao ovako (nosim samo puder):

As you can see, it didn't cover up most of the imperfection, which means it doesn't have full coverage as they say. I would say it is sheer to medium coverage, if you build it up. But, here is where the problems begin. It grabs on te dry patches I didn't even knew I had. It doesn't apply evenly, which you can see in the area around the nose. Just like I said while swatching it on the hand - it sits on the skin in a weird way (even though I pushed it into the skin with a sponge).

Now for the different primers, on the side that I had mattifying primer on, pores do look more filled in, but that is what the primer did, not the foundation.
________________________________________________________________________________

Kao što možeš vidjeti, nije pokrio sve nedostatke, odnosno nije većinu njih, što znači da nema srednje do potpuno prekrivanje kako kažu, već bih rekla da je slabo do srednje ako ga nadogradiš. Ali tu počinju problemi... Hvata se za suhe dijelove koje uopće nisam znala da imam. Ne nanosi se ravnomjerno, što se može vidjeti na području oko nosa. Baš onako kako sam rekla na swatchu na ruci - čudno se razvlači po koži i kao da stoji na površini, makar ga ja utapkavala spužvicom.

Što se tiče različitih primera, na strani na kojem nosim matirajući primer, pore su manje vidljive, ali to je do primera, ne do pudera.

I finished my makeup at 4:15pm. I used the products that are my favorites and that I know how they perform. So we are only testing the foundation and combining it with well known product that won't mess up with the foundation wear during the day.

At the end, it actually looked decent. The foundation sinked into the skin a bit and fused with all the other products. Only the dry patches on my chin still look bad.
________________________________________________________________________________

Oko 16:15 sati sam završila s nanošenjem ostatka šminke. Koristila sam sve proizvode za koje znam kako se ponašaju i koji su mi favoriti. Tako da testiramo puder s već poznatim proizvodima koji neće utjecati na njegovo ponašanje tijekom dana.

Na kraju je to čak izgledao dobro, puder se lagano upio u kožu i stopio se sa svim ostalim proizvodima. Jedino suha područja na bradi za koja se uhvatio izgledaju loše.

Let's get on the chaos that this foundation caused after 3 hours of wear. I took off the lipstick because I ate in the meantime.

I looked in the mirror around 7:45pm and looked like this (you can see how happy I am):
________________________________________________________________________________

No idemo sad na kaos koji je ovaj puder izazvao nakon tri sata nošenja. Ruž sam skinula jer sam u međuvremenu jela.

Oko 19:45 sati sam se pogledala u ogledalo i izgledala sam ovako (vidi mi se na licu koliko sam zadovoljna):

Not only do I look like someone poured oil all over my face, the foundation ate the blush, the bronzer, maybe even the highlighter - I can't tell because I am shiny all over. It grabbed on the skin around my nose... It dissapeared from the chin and the nose, it just left the oily residue. And it is not that pretty dewy kind of look, this is a disaster.

There is no difference in primers either, both sides are shiny the same way.

And let me be clear, my skin never gets this oily, I didn't go outside, stayed in the house, that day wasn't so hot and humid either. I didn't work out, do squats or run... But I do look like I took a swim in pure vegetable oil.

I have never, ever tried a foundation that made my skin this oil in just 3 hours! 3 hours! On my combination dry skin. I can't even imagine what it would do to my oily skin girls out there.
________________________________________________________________________________

Ne samo da izgledam kao da me netko zalio uljem, gotovo pa je pojeo rumenilo, bronzer, možda čak i highlighter - ne mogu reći sa sigurnošću jer se sjajim po cijelom licu. Nakupio se na području oko nosa... Na bradi i na nosu ga niti nema, ostao je samo masni trag. Ovo nije onaj lijepi dewy look, ovo je užas. 

Nema razlike između primera, obje se jednako sjaje.

Da napomenem, koža mi se nikada ovako ne masti, nisam izlazila iz kuće, a taj dan nije bilo niti pretjerano vruće i sparno. Nikakva fizička aktivnost, vježbanje, trčanje... Ali izgledam kao da sam plivala u ulju.

Nikada, ali baš nikada nisam isprobala puder od kojega sam se ovako zamastila i to u samo tri sata! Tri sata! Na mojoj mješovito suhoj koži. Kakav je tek na osobama s masnom kožom?

I won't even tell you how much does it cost or where you can buy it - just don't. 

It claimed to do so many things and it was completly opposite from all of that. And I wanted to love it, I kept giving it a chance for months, I listened all the hype from out and foreing infuencers and bloggers... But no. Just no.
________________________________________________________________________________

Neću ti ni govoriti koliko košta ili gdje ga kupiti jer - nemoj. 

Sve što je tvrdio je ostalo ne ispunjeno. A željela sam ga voljeti, davala sam mu šansu mjescima, slušala sav taj hype svih naših i stranih infuencera i blogera... Ali ne, ovo se ne isplati.

  1. Svaka cast na ovoj recenziji, cekam ju od kada si najavila na Instagramu. U potpunosti se slazem sa svime napisanim. Ja imam masnu kozu i ovaj puder mi je takoder ocajan. Cudno se nanosi, brise sa lica, jako brzo zasjaji, pore jos vise naglasi a za suhe dijelove (koje nisam ni znala da imam jer bas pazim na hidrataciju ) jos vise naglasi. Uglavnom meni je grozan i necu ni ovu tubicu potrositi a kamoli tek ponoviti kupnju. Stvarno jedan od najlosijih matirajucih pudera koji sam probala a probala sam ih stvarno puno.

    1. Ništa, samo iskreno. Vidim da imaš iste probleme s njim kao i ja... baš mi je žao jer je obećavao puno, pogotovo jer su svi pričali o njemu. :(

  2. Takoder. Sve potpisujem. U istom cjenovnom rangu, a cak i jeftinijem ima puno boljih pudera koji cak i rade taj posao kojim se ovi hvale. Ni najmanje zadovoljna, stoji pun u torbici.

    1. Baš to! I ja ću proslijediti nekome tko ga želi isprobati, ali sve mi se čini da većini ne odgovara :(

  3. Super recenzija! :)Nazalost,kod mene je ista stvar, jako sam se veselila tom puderu,nakon mjeseci slusanja o njemu na yt, da bi se na kraju totalno razocarala! Prekrivanje je doslovno smijesno,nakon par sati izgledam kao da sam se kupala u ulju, a o patchy flekama po licu da ne govorim :/ jedino mi je logicno da je drugacija formula za americko trziste,jer ovo je grozno..

    1. Isti slučaj kao i kod mene :( vjerujem da čak i je druga formula, čini se da cure koje ga kupe vani imaju dobra iskustva.

  4. Bravo, stvarno si se potrudila oko recenzije! Ni meni nije odgovarao iako sam mu dala više šansi. Nije se nikako stapao sa kožom, užasno mi je naglašavao suhe djelove...ma sve isto kao i tebi. Baš šteta :( Čudno mi je kako su neki toliko oduševljeni njime, još mi se nije desilo s nijednim puderom da mi je tako loš.

    1. Hvala ti! Dosada sam mislila da smo rijetki mi kojima se nije svidio, ali poslije ove recenzije mi se sve više cura javlja sa istim dojmovima.. baš šteta, toliko je nahvaljen :(

  5. Odlična recenzija! Neki dan sam ga skoro kupila samo jer je bio na akciji, ali mi je drago da ipak nisam. :D
