Before I start with the review, I know this is only a sample, but as it is a very generously sized sample I believe I have had enough use out of it to be able to give it a fair review. I used this foundation for around 4 weeks before reviewing.
Now that's out of the way, this is the new foundation from Maybelline, which is called "fit me!". I believe there's a range of products including this foundation, a powder and a concealer.
I won't mention the packaging as this is only a sample and therefore is not in the same packaging as the full-sized bottle.
Maybelline were offering people the chance to try this foundation for free on their website, but unfortunately they have now run out of samples! Naturally I jumped at the chance to try this as I had heard so many good things about it. I didn't want to purchase the full-sized one just yet as I still have half a bottle of the Benefit foundation left and I hate wasting products, so I thought I'd try a sample and see what I thought before purchasing the full-sized.
In all honesty this is the wrong shade for me, it's slightly too orange. It's not too bad and I have worn it but I think I would be inclined to purchase the shade lighter than this.
There's 12 shades available in this range, and although it's a pretty good range if you are pale-skinned, if you are dark-skinned then unfortunately there's not a lot of choice with this foundation!
I have the shade Classic Ivory but as I mentioned it's slightly too dark so I would probably purchase Ivory.
Maybelline describe this as "flawless, let the real you come through", and their tagline for the range is "don't mask me, fit me" so the focus is on a natural look which enhances your skin rather than covering it up. It's actually very similar to the Hello Flawless Benefit foundation I have been using (review here) in the fact that it's quite runny, and the coverage is sheer at first but it is buildable without looking 'cakey'.
It's very easy to blend into your skin - I tend to blend with my fingers and the buff it into my skin with the Real Techniques Buffing Brush as I find it hard to apply this with a brush alone. It lasts around 6 hours without primer or setting powder, but with both of these it lasts me all day.
Overall I am really impressed with this. I will be purchasing this instead of my Benefit foundation when it runs out as I think it's extremely similar and also a third of the price! I really want to try the powder and concealer now because if the foundation is anything to go by, they will probably be amazing!
Anyone tried this?
