Maybelline New York has launched a bunch of new products this season but the one I was most excited about was the Fit Me! Shine-Free Foundation Stick. It has an anti-shine core and a creamy formula that turns into powder once applied.
This sounded amazing to me since I have combination/oily skin and am always looking for something to keep my shine away. I want some coverage but nothing too thick or heavy feeling. This stick delivers all of my requests and is super easy to use.
The small size allows me to swipe in in a few key areas – forehead, each cheek, nose, and chin – and then blend with my fingers or a brush. The different coloured core blends with the foundation colour so don’t worry about that in the tube. I’ve never used a stick foundation before but this one was a great first experience.
Typically I apply BB Cream all over and then concealer on a few problem patches, however with the Fit Me! Shine-Free Foundation Stick I only need one product for everything. It does keep my shine down, although in this sweltering weather there probably isn’t anything out there that can prevent shine completely on my skin.
The Fit Me! Stick was a fantastic introduction to stick foundation and the anti-shine core really works. I’ve felt (and looked) much less oily in the last few weeks of wearing this foundation. I’m really happy with the result and recommend those of you with oily skin to check this product out!
