[Review] New! Maybelline Fit Me Foundation ‘Dewy + Smooth’


The famous Maybelline’s Fit Me Foundation has 2 additional new versions now! Fit Me Foundation was on many beauty bloggers’ favorites lists. However, many people commented that they wished the product was more specific for each skin type. To meet their needs, Maybelline released 2 new versions of Fit Me Foundation: Dewy + Smooth and Matte + Poreless. Since I have dry skin, I purchased the Dewy + Smooth one.

I loved Mac’s Moisture Foundation, so I expected this new Fit Me foundation to give nice dewy glowy look like the Mac one. Let’s see whether it could be a dupe for Mac’s foundation.

Let’s talk about the shade first. For foundations, and for most brands, the lightest shade of the medium shade group matches my skintone. So, I purchased that shade which is 210 Sandy Beige. However, compared to other brands’ medium shades, Fit Me Foundation has a much stronger yellow undertone. Therefore, though it’s technically only a shade darker than what I’m supposed to use, it looks much darker/yellower when applied on my skin. If you are on the borderline between light and medium shades, you will need to be extra careful when picking the shade.


Left side: No foundation, Right side: Fit Me Foundation in Sandy Beige (210)

Texture is very nice. My first impression is that the product is very lightweight and liquidy. It’s really light, it almost feels like a BB cream or a tinted moisturizer. If you don’t like the typical heavy foundation texture, you’ll love this texture.

The coverage wasn’t impressive. To test the coverage, I drew 2 dots, and covered the dot on the right side with fit me foundation. I’d say the coverage is about light – medium. It is buildable, but it doesn’t fully cover up spots. If you have lots of blemishes or spots to cover, you should use a concealer.


Lasting and oil control was a bit disappointing. I was expecting a dewy look like a Mac foundation. However, even though I have extremely dry skin, with my normal skin care routine, my skin looked oily rather than dewy in ONLY an hour after I applied. Even if you have dry skin, you should use less product during your skincare step and use setting powder to control excess oil. Otherwise, your face will look greasy and oily all over.

Overall, it didn’t meet my expectations at all….. 😦 It gives more of an oily look rather than a dewy and smooth look. Also, the coverage was quite disappointing as well. I won’t repurchase this product.

Which drugstore foundation do you recommend for dry skin?

    I have oily/combo skin & have heard good things about the Matte & Poreless version. Especially when used with the matching powder.

    Hello! Thanks for visiting my blog and following me. Great review, by the way! I love reading up on drugstore makeup reviews.

  3. StylEnigma says:

    That’s a good review. I’ve been considering changing foundations. I am on the hunt for a new foundation and MAC Isn’t doing it for me at the moment. Something to consider.

    I liked the fit me , matte & poreless & my skin is generally oily. This foundation fizes all of that ! Maybe you should try that? Sorry the other one didnt work for you ;/ i also like the rimmel matte bb cream & Hardcandy Cc cream 🙂

    I would not recommend any drug store product for dry skin-they all contain chemicals. What I use is organic coconut oil and booda butter by booda Organics. It is very silky to the touch.

    Great review! I have combo skin and I don’t think I’d be interested in this just because if i’m going to wear a foundation, it might as well cover nicely. If not, then I wouldn’t wear any to begin with!

    So glad I looked at your review before purchasing this one. I have the matte one and that works well even though I have pretty dry skin. I always use moisturizer beforehand though c.

    Aww too bad! Thanks for the review. I have had good experiences with Revlon Nearly Naked and L’Oréal True Match liquids, for my dry skin. The color matches aren’t great, though.

      Yea, I agree with you 😦 I prefer Lumi foundation from Loreal and 24 hr colorstay foundation (for nomal – dry skin) from Revlon! Colorstay still doesn’t perfectly match my skintone, but i love how long it lasts.
