My Queens! It’s been awhile since I brought you a review. My apologies loves. Don’t be too upset with me. Why? Because I’m working on a new venture which will have me bringing you more raves, reviews and fabulous make up looks. Can you say excited?! Anyway, ya’ll already know all about my make up struggle when it comes to foundations and concealers. The brown girls get no love. So when I come across a product that fits THIS brown queens chocolate complexion AND it works great…well you know I’m going to bring all that amazingness here!
Today I’m raving all about Maybelline Fit Me Foundation Stick in 355 Coconut. The darkest of the shades, this foundation is everything to me! Here’s what the good folks at Maybelline say:
It’s one-step perfection.
The first of its kind – lightweight gel stick foundation with an anti-shine powder core:
- Powder core instantly dissolves excess oil.
- For flawless, shine-free skin and tailor-made natural matte coverage.
- Easy to apply and great on-the go.
- Available in 12 oil-free shades.

It took me forever to find my shade, I almost gave up but I’m so glad I didn’t :D. I love this stuff. For oh so many reasons. Where shall I begin? First, I have interesting skin. It’s oily in some places, dry in others. I would never use a foundation that isn’t designed to work well for oily skin. Otherwise by the end of the day I end up looking crazy. Matte foundations make me a bit nervous because of some random dry patches, but as long as I use a good moisturizer I’m fine. So. That being said I was extremely excited for a matte foundation that had a powder core to dissolve oil. HELLO MY LOVE. And I was also extremely excited for a foundation that was so easy to apply and take along with me. I’m lazy queens. No for real. So any extra step I can exclude is a win for me. I find it lasts a full work day for me and I really don’t get oily throughout the day with this. It blends seamlessly and gives a matte finish I love.
I’ve been using this as my daily foundation for awhile now. I find that the coverage is medium at best for me. I’ve heard some people say it’s buildable but I wouldn’t know. I use a flat top powder brush to apply (that I spritz very lightly with MAC Fix+. It helps blend for me). I love the fact that it’s so lightweight. Perfect for everyday wear at the gig. Or early Saturday morning football games when your son doesn’t get that you’re taking a pic for the blog ;).
So have you tried this foundation? What do you think?
Peace, Love, & Blessings
