According to Maybelline.com: “Our first gel stick foundation with an anti-shine core, fresh gel foundation blends to a natural matte finish, lightweight powders in the anti-shine core instantly dissolve excess oil”
All in all, the Maybelline Fit Me Shine Free Foundation Stick holds up with a few minor things that I would have changed. The product definitely delivers a shine-free finish, feels light weight, and is extremely easy to apply.
Dimethicone is second on the ingredient list for the inner core “anti-shine” portion of the stick, so it definitely is going to go on the skin smoothly and help mattify. Their are also dimethicone cross polymers included further down the line on the list, which suggest there is a good amount but not too much to cause worry. Also the use of this product is for topical purposes, which is the best way to utilize this ingredient. The foundation will create a barrier around the skin making it not the best option for my femmes with acne issues.
I like Maybelline Fit Me Shine-Free as an “on-the-go” foundation. It’s easy to apply and may need to be touched up throughout the day. The stuff instantly mattifies and takes away shine. But if there ever was a foundation that has to be washed off before bed, it is this one, no exceptions!!!!
Maybelline offers good shade selection(12 shades) for the foundation and is quite affordable(under $10 usd). Definitely worth adding to the collection, you could always use more makeup, girlie!!!!
