Maybelline Fit Me Shine-Free + Balance Review

Hi loves, I wanted to start this week off with a fun bonus post! Today I am doing a review of the Maybelline Fit Me Shine-Free + Balance foundation review. I have been testing this product out for a few weeks and haven’t written a post about it yet because it confused me. I’m not obsessed with this foundation but I still like it, doesn’t make sense right…I’ll explain.

I was excited to try this because it says it’s made for combination skin types (I’m normal to combo skin) and it has a powder core. I will give Maybelline creativity points because I have never seen anything else in the drugstore like this. However, this foundation is not for all of my full coverage 24/7 girls, it is much more of a natural to sheer coverage foundation.


My first impression of this was that I hated it, I thought it didn’t do anything to my skin and was a waste. After using it a few times I started to like it more. You have to apply the foundation to your face in sections and run the foundation over your skin 3-4 times for it to look good. I love using this for an everyday/work look because it evens out my redness, it dries to a powder finish so I don’t have to set my face with powder and it will last me through an 8 hour shift. If you have very dry skin you will probably not like this because the powder finish may leave your skin looking dehydrated. For my normal to oily girls who like a natural finish foundation I would definitely recommend you give this a try.

What’s your latest drugstore find? Let me know in the comments, drink your coffee and have a fabulous Monday.

Alissa ❤
