Doesn't work for me


This foundation just doesn't do it for me. Is it matte? Yes. Does it have good coverage? Yes. But this sinks into pores I didn't even know I had and looks ridic...

  1. love love love


    This is the best affordable foundation

  2. great foundation


    one of the best drugstore foundations out there. glides on the skin so effortlessly and does not cling onto to dry spots.

  3. Not a fan


    It's a great price point and seems to work for a lot of people, but it simply won't grip to my face and transfers incredibly easily onto everything.... my hand if it happens to brush past my face gets covered in a swipe of it, and I use barely any product. It's not for me.

  4. Meh


    Appreciate this is popular and cheaper option, but honestly not a fan. Perhaps it is my oily skin, but I find that this slides around my face and do not like how easily this transfers, even with powder. Prefer pricier options that last the whole day without me worrying about my foundation.

  5. excellent


    use this on special occasions and it is amazing i even get compliments for my makeup will always use this !

  6. Not the best for dry skin.


    Looks cakey on dry skin, but my oily skin friends love this product.

  7. Amazing


    Amazing foundation my favourite drug store foundation

  8. Good light matte foundation


    (Video) Foundation Friday for Over 50s | Maybelline Matte & Poreless

    I have very (very) oily skin. This is my go-to lighter coverage foundation, that I use when I don't want something heavy (my full coverage go-to is Estee Lauder Double Wear). This is light, less coverage, but is buildable. Considering how oily my skin is, this does a good job of keeping the oil down. I team it with a translucent mattifying setting powder.

  9. Pretty good for the price


    This is an OK foundation with a great colour range. I found it a bit heavy and not terribly natural looking.

  10. Not Amazing.


    I would for sure say that this a great foundation for the price, but if you have oily skin you definitely need to set it with powder and use a good primer otherwise by the end of the day this foundation just slides off my face, and is transfers very easily.

  11. wow


    the price for this and the quality is fantastic . i even use it on special events and still get complimented for my makeup. actually one of the best foundations , very very happy

  12. Good not great


    I used this on my forehead as it gets quite oily,, first application I was in love with the finish but after a few days of wear it caused me irritation. Spending a bit more cash on a good foundation is very very worth it!! If you have normal tough skin buy this! but if not avoid it and buy something better formulated

  13. Solid Budget Foundation


    I have combination oily skin, and I find this is one of the better foundations for oil control. I still have oily skin by the end of the day, but it is not as bad as other foundations I have tried. I find this provides a medium-to-full, matte-ish finish that, while it does not have a no-make up finish, does not look cakey. I find I have to mix two colours to get my correct shade, but for the pr...

  14. Great finish


    A really good budget foundation. Only complaint is the colour range. Does not have a paler colour for pink tone skin

  15. Good


    Great for beginners. Cannot go wrong for the prices. Overall great product especially for oily skin

  16. Pretty good foundation


    I keep going back to this foundation. There's so many colours to choose from to get a good match. Have to layer it a bit for a fuller coverage, but it does the job!

  17. Great


    extremely affordable and does a top job

  18. Not compatible


    The first few times I used this it was the best full coverage foundation I'd tried. Once I started a skincare routine I learnt that I dont actually have oily skin but rather dry. Because of this despite the colour being a good match the formula is not suited to dry skin.

  19. Not worth it


    A good cheap option but don't expect it to be super matte. I felt by the end of the day I needed powder. Colour options are good though!

  20. Wow


    This foundation is extremely affordable and does a top job !

  21. Pretty good


    I use the shade 115-120 , I like to mix it . And I love the results and the matte finish .

  22. So good


    Such a great matte foundation, my favourite drug store foundation without a doubt .

  23. Love


    One of the best I love it looks so good on skin covers really well

  24. fantastic coverage


    so affordable i get it usually for 10$ and the coverage is fantastic.

  25. love it!


    I personally love it so much and is one of my go to's. i like the coverage and the matte look it gives my face. maybelline is one of my fav cosmetic brands.

  26. Reliable


    Took me a couple tries to get the right shade with the right undertone, but is a good reliable full coverage foundation.

  27. Great product at good price


    Really good pharmacy foundation. Lasts all day

  28. Okay


    Decent for the price however not enough coverage for me

  29. Perfect all-rounder


    I keep lots of shades of this one in my makeup kit as a makeup artist and it's super versatile and works well on many different skin types! Medium coverage with a pretty natural finish I'd say. Worth the money in my opinion.

  30. A budget-friendly foundation with superior performance


    I’ve tried many matte foundations across low to high price brackets and I always go back to this. Personally, I find that this has the ideal finish for my oily skin – the perfect balance between a matte and natural finish – and offers the perfect shade match. A lot of foundations look pretty bad on me by the end of the day, but this one stays put. I have gone through 5 bottles of these and I still...

  31. Bargain foundation


    This foundation is fantastic for its affordable price. I have combination skin and it sits nicely on my skin without getting too oily by the end of the day. It blends very well too and offers nice medium coverage.

  32. I like, but not love


    (Video) Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless Foundation Review

    I picked this up instead of the dewy version by accident, I still finished the product and it worked well, but is probably just mods suited to oily skin, whereas I have dry skin ;)

  33. I love this foundation for light/medium coverage


    I love this foundation and it's matte finish. If I'm going out I will go for a more full coverage foundation but as an every day foundation it sets so well, blends easily and stays on all day.

  34. Good for the price


    For what you pay it isn’t a bad foundation. In my opinion it wasn’t enough coverage though

  35. Best on a budget


    I’ve repeat purchased this many times as it’s long lasting, good coverage but natural looking

  36. Great value for money


    I switched to this as my everyday foundation recently, attracted by the price point. It's very light feel, but gives a good everyday coverage. Really impressed by how it still looks at the end of the day. I've been using with the matching pressed powder and they sit well together

  37. Impressive!


    I quite like this foundation as it is nice and matte as promised and I have no issues with it despite having dry skin (I believe this is meant to be better suited for oily skin types). Coverage is also really great. The only issue I have is that I can't seem to find a perfect shade match for me personally so I resort to mixing two shades, but otherwise this is definitely a good option if you're in...

  38. Glowing on a Budget!


    This is a lightweight, medium coverage foundation that is perfect for everyday wear. It does not clog pores or leave the skin feeling heavy. It doesn't really sink in fine lines or pores which is amazing.

  39. Love it


    This leaves my skin looking poreless and natural and smooth

  40. All Rounder


    Great, affordable every day foundation. Gets a little shiny after alllll day wear, but still sits well. Great medium coverage, easily buildable without cakiness. Also great shade range.

  41. Not as poreless as I hoped


    The colour range and overall matte finish of this is reasonably nice and the foundation doesn't seem to really oxidise which is nice for the price...but it really sinks into pores. Even pore filling primers couldn't help me to get this to sit quite right unfortunately.

  42. great shade range


    Really nice foundation and lasts all night

  43. Good for the price


    Although I wouldn't say this is my favourite foundation ever, it is one of the better drugstore foundations in my opinion. I find it has a good consistency, not too thick that it would cake but enough to give light-medium coverage. This might be good for those starting out with makeup or just looking for something more affordable.

  44. Reliable


    Really good coverage and finish, lasts a long time too. I don't think my shade is the perfect shade, so I have resorted to mixing.

  45. Average


    It is very mattifying so I would only recommend for oily skin. I think it pretty good for a drug store foundation brand.

  46. Don't understand the hype


    I wasn't impressed by this formula. It was just too matte and flat-looking, and flaked off in patches during the day (yikes!). It also stung my eyes when I got too close when applying. There are far better matte foundations which don't leave you looking like a mannequin.

  47. Doesn't work for me


    This foundation just doesn't do it for me. Is it matte? Yes. Does it have good coverage? Yes. But this sinks into pores I didn't even know I had and looks ridiculously dry and patchy on my skin, no matter what I use to apply it or what I put underneath it. I also don't like that there is no pump. Not a fan, won't repurchase.

  48. WOW!


    Great finish! I have oily skin and I love how this looks.
    Better than some high end foundations!

  49. Easy to blend


    Firstly there is an amazing selection of colours in the fit me range. The foundation is easy to blend with any blending tool. It lasts all day and has a natural matte finish that isn't cakey.

  50. My favourite foundation...EVER!


    I use this day to day and for events. It's easy to apply using many different tools and blends effortlessly into my skin. It's a great base for whatever I choose to layer on top of it. It stays all day with some setting spray and I haven't known it too melt/sweat off! I have different shades for different days and they can also be mixed easily. What I also love is that a little goes a long way and...

  51. Love it!


    I use this foundation everyday and I'm happy with how it looks! It does get a bit drying after while but it is still really nice

  52. Not the best choice of foundation


    I have a dry face and this foundation is not the best choice for dry skins. It's also very thick when you apply to the face and it doesn't give that natural look.

  53. Not sure


    I like the coverage and it is a good colour match for me but it looks very dry on my skin. Even using a hydrated primer underneath doesn't do much.

  54. Great matte finish, not best coverage.


    I find it looks a little bit cakey (after primer) on my skin even though it's only maybe medium coverage at best, for someone with imperfect skin it doesn't cover redness as much as I would expect. I do love that it's oil free and matte but I personally will only be using this foundation for light make up looks, as I prefer full coverage foundation.

  55. Flawless foundation


    So many shades here, it is easy to find your truest match and get flawless, radiant and healthier looking skin, that really does cover those pores. A very light foundations and blends in super well

  56. Not for me


    Not for me personally - I have oilier skin (especially in the heat) and I found that this foundation slips and slides a little. I think it's better when I'm in a colder climate oddly.

    (Video) Maybelline Super Stay Active Wear 30 HOUR Foundation VS FIT ME Foundation! | WEAR TEST & REVIEW 🤔

  57. Good


    This is my go to everyday foundation for summers. I have combination skin and this keeps my T-zone matte for most of the day. I do need to touch up after 6-7 hours but it is pretty incredible for the price.

  58. Long lasting !

    Jes M

    Long lasting foundation but does not suit oily skin. You only need a little product for a full coverage look.

  59. awesome


    little goes a very long way, my favourite foundation really affordable too

  60. Looks really dry and textured


    I'd heard so many rave reviews about this and really wanted to love it but it just didn't work for my normal combo, 32 year old skin. It looks really dry on my skin and shows allll the texture. It also sinks into and creases in every fine line (forehead, smile lines etc). I knew I didn't like it but honestly didn't realize QUITE how bad it was until I changed to a different foundation and was like...

  61. Excellent and affordable


    I found this product to be perfect when looking for non cardiogenic foundation at a fraction of the cost of others. It’s good for everyday use or a base which I love!

  62. good foundation


    This foundation works great for me, and to my surprise, just as good as expensive foundations I've tried in the past.

  63. Pretty good


    I liked the coverage of this product but I felt as though it sunk into my pores and fine lines more than I expected showing texture, however I’m combination with a primer this was reduced

  64. Okay...not amazing but not terrible


    I began using this Foundation a couple of years ago. At the start, I loved it and I hopped between the Matte and the SPF and always landed back on the Matte as it has a slightly nicer finish. However, in recent months, I have noticed the finish is becoming less optimal and it doesn't last throughout the day. Yes - this may be me/my skin/not using primer. But I have never used them in the past (I K...

  65. Pretty good


    This is a classic drugstore foundation and it does its job but I find it a bit too matte, the dewy one is way more natural but if matte is what you like then you'll love this.

  66. Great product


    I have oily skin and this foundation absolutely airbrushes my skin and I use a little bit for a natural look

  67. Good Coverage but oxidises quickly


    This foundation looks very nice when you first apply it on your face. However, it oxidised very quickly so I would recommend you to get a shade lighter than your actual skin tone. Otherwise, it is perfect for oily/combination skin!

  68. Amazing


    I have combination skin and this is absolutely perfect for that. Keeps the oils at bay and it is also a perfect match and normally I struggle with finding a perfect match. Stays on for 12 hours without any issues. Amazing price.

  69. Love it


    Love this for my oily skin! looks great all day.

  70. My fave foundation


    I have normal skin but have found this foundation really suits well on my skin and leaves a lovely satin finish- definitely not fully matte. I only use a small amount to even out my skin tone and find it wears well all day and can be built it for full coverage.

  71. Fits my complexion

    Loz Delosa

    This foundation fits perfectly to your skin tone and colour. It also blends nicely and stays put all day. It’s not heavy on the skin and give a nice natural look.

  72. Great for price point!


    This foundation is a staple in my make up routine. It’s got a great price point and always lasts me so long. The coverage is great and it stays all day!

  73. Go to


    I've been using this foundation for 5+ yrs, it's never let me down. 110 porcelain is a really good light shade as it is neutral - a lot of other foundation light shades are too pink toned for me. It is matte finish but not drying and the price is great, would be great if they just made it with a pump !!

  74. Perfect


    Was recommended to me so I will recommend it to you. Perfect for any skin tone as it comes in many shades

  75. Great


    I have oily skin and this foundation makes it look blurred and poreless. It also looks natural on my skin and is great except for the slight creasing on my eyelid

  76. Great coverage and affordable


    I have been using this foundation for at least the last two years now and love it. Great coverage, perfect for oily skin and super affordable!

  77. Great coverage and affordable


    I have been using this foundation for probably the past two years and absolutely love it. Great coverage, perfect for oily skin and really affordable.

  78. Love love love


    I love this foundation. It's so cheap and the best every day foundation, has a great matte finish and doesn't dry your skin out too much. It sets on the skin and you don't even have to wear powder on top! Have purchased over and over and will continue to purchase to avoid wasting my expensive foundations for every day use.

  79. Not as good as the original


    This foundation is OK, I don't think it is better than the original fit me foundation. I do have oily skin but not a fan of the finish to this.

  80. Best foundation ever.


    Do not hesitate to add it into your bag. This is all you need for a standard foundation: smooth, full coverage and still pretty all day long

  81. Keep going back


    (Video) Review MAYBELLINE FIT ME Matte & Poreless Foundation 190 GOLDEN NATURAL

    I find myself always going back to this classic as it’s so affordable and reliable, a great every day foundation

  82. Holy grail drugstore foundation!


    I mix this foundation with the dewy and smooth one to create the perfect texture for my skin! Dries down to a satin finish and lasts all day even without setting. One of the best foundations I own and is such a great affordable alternative to higher end products

  83. best drugstore foundation


    this is probably the best drugstore foundation I've used. I love this so much. It's affordable. It has a medium to full buildable coverage. I attended to use this daily. It lasts all day long without causing any cakiness.

  84. Great affordable foundation


    This is such a great and affordable foundation. It looks amazing on the skin and feels beautiful. It is work suitable and also party suitable. I love it!

  85. great for the price


    a super affordable good foundation. Not the best I have ever tried but for the price defiantly a good option

  86. Good


    This is my everyday foundation. It's affordable and it applies nicely. I also really like the colour, I self tan and I use the shade 220 and it's perfect. It does settle into my smile lines but that happens to me with every foundation. Only downside is I find I get flashback with this, so for me it's strictly daytime wear only!

  87. Will never use another foundation again!


    I will never use another foundation again! This keeps my skin fresh and leaves a nice matte finish

  88. Great for those getting into make up


    great for those getting into make up. Is cheap and has a range of shades. Nothing super amazing but for the price and shade range it is pretty good.

  89. Best foundation


    This is a great foundation with great coverage. It's smooth and leaves a great matte finish

  90. Great budget foundation


    This foundation is a great budget every day wear liquid foundation. It goes on smooth, has a nice matte finish without being cakey, and comes in a good range of shades.

  91. Great for beginners


    A true medium coverage with the potential to be built up to full. Doesn't look cakey and has decent staying power! A no frills matte foundation for those on a budget!

  92. Okay


    Great budget foundation. I have normal to oily skin and some days find im oily straight away after using this. It still stays on quite well but is very light coverage. Also doesnt come in many shades.

  93. Perfect


    I have long days and am usually wearing this foundation for about 17 hrs on most days and it remains perfect the whole day. I build the coverage whenever i wear this in the morning and it still looks smooth

  94. good first liquid foundation


    Medium coverage and semi-matte. A basic matte foundation for a great price. My complaint would be the lack of a pump, makes dispensing the product very messy.

  95. Love


    Is it wrong I love this product as much as my MAC foundations? Side by side, I honestly cannot tell a difference.
    This product is perfect if you have oily skin and on a budget

  96. Good starting foundation


    I wouldnt say it is the best one but it is good foundation to get started with. It is not very drying but good for oily skin

  97. good natural coverage


    really nice cheap natural coverage foundation. It blends really nicely and lasts all day if set with a good powder. Great range of colours too.

  98. Amazing


    This foundation gives me a very soft and natural finish. My skin looks flawless after using this. I have oily skin. I don't mind patting after a few hours to absorb the oils

  99. Good foundation


    This is pretty good for a drugstore foundation. If your looking for something budget friendly for everyday wear this is a good foundation, it is medium to full coverage and sits nicely on the skin. However, like any foundation it all comes down to your skin and how you prep it.

  100. Great


    I adore Maybelline and this foundation is one of the reasons why. One of my favourite foundations and I usually get it for much cheaper :)
