July has passed and I wasn’t able to review the rest of the makeup I was using then. But, actually, only the foundation and concealer are left, both of which I still use. They could still be part of my August makeup routine because I ♥ them both! In order of how I put them on, I’ll begin the reviews with foundation then concealer.
Maybelline Fit Me! Matte+Poreless Foundation 130 Buff Beige
This drugstore foundation has very good reviews and has been highly recommended for those with oily combination skin.
I don’t think I have any cons, but only pros on this drugstore foundation.
- Truly matte with medium to heavy coverage
- Eight-hour longevity and sometimes longer before any shininess peers through
- Easy to blend (with fingers)
The bottle doesn’t come with a pump and I’m fine with that; it’s most likely not okay for others because it could get messy or even wasteful. My L’Oreal foundation didn’t come in a pump either and I was able to use it without wasting too much product.
Oh, wait, it does have one con–Not travel-friendly. Though you can just carefully pour into a small tub an enough amount needed for a short trip.
The Maybelline Fit Me! Matte+Poreless Foundation is the best drugstore foundation I have used so far for my oily combination skin. I love it and would highly, highly recommend! Unfortunately, this isn’t available locally, though there are many online sellers who have it. I had to ask for my Mom to buy one during her short trip. She actually couldn’t find it at first because it was out of stock in most stores she went to. So I’m glad she found it in my shade a few days before she had to fly home. 🙂
Maybelline Fit Me! Concealer 25 Medium
My first liquid drugstore concealer and I love it! 😀
- Also yellow-toned, so it matches the foundation.
- Medium to heavy coverage
- Brightens under the eyes
- Doesn’t cake or look dry after hours of wear
- Doesn’t accentuate fine lines under the eyes
- Longevity is almost the same as the foundation or probably longer at about 10 to twelve hours
- Very affordable at PhP299/tube
- Also easy to blend with just fingers
I like to use my fingers to blend concealer. I only use brush when the concealer’s consistency is thin or watery. This one has a slightly thick consistency.
The tube contains 0.23oz of product, but there seems to lesser amount. I might be going through the tube fast even though I don’t put on much. Anyway, for the price, I could just buy more. 😉
Here’s me just right after a shower 😀 with a before and after application.
Left: With NUXE Crème Fraiche 24hr Moisturizing Anti-Fatigue Concentrate Serum and
Biore UV Perfect Bright Milk SPF50
Right: With the Maybelline Fit Me! Matte+Poreless Foundation and Concealer
These are not just part of my current makeup routine, but also my favorite face products. 🙂 I only wish the Matte+Poreless Foundation becomes available in local stores.
