For me, finding my perfect foundation shade in a drugstore brand has been never ending. After all failures, I settled down with MAC Studio Fix, and I am NC 45. I have no clue why do drugstore brands come up with only lighter shades and never consider dusky or darker shades. When I heard that Maybelline is going to launch their Fit Me! range in India, I was so glad as there were more than 20 shades and was certain that there will be a perfect shade for me. Unfortunately, only 6 shades were launched in India 😦 Felt like screaming, “You too, Maybelline?” Luckily, one shade fitted me, and that is “330 Toffee Caramel.” This foundation also has a complementary compact powder shade, which is named as “330 Toffee” (for a detailed review, click HERE).

My Experience with Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation 330 Toffee Caramel
Packaging: This foundation comes in a glass bottle with a black screw cap. Not providing a pump is such a dud. Controlling the foundation flow is quite hard, leading to product wastage and messing up the bottle as well. However, it is justifiable for its price tag. The complete list of ingredients is also present.
Texture: The texture of this foundation is thin, smooth, and creamy. It is meant for normal to oily skin. It blends like a dream. It is so lightweight that you will feel nothing on the face.
Shade: “330 Toffee Caramel” is the darkest shade in this range and the only shade for dusky beauties. I am quite happy but, because you cannot see such a shade in a drugstore brand. It has yellow undertones, which best suits Indian complexion. It fits me perfect.
Performance: This foundation gives a medium coverage but can be built up. It applies very smoothly and evenly. It does not look cakey at all even if layered on, but one layer is more than enough to even out the skin. It gives a silky, satiny finish rather than a matte finish, which I love. This foundation gives the best natural, flawless finish. The staying power is very decent for a medium-coverage foundation. It lasted for 4 hours, and then my T zone had a bit of greasiness. When touched up with powder, it lasted for around 6 hours. With primer underneath, it lasted even longer. It is a great everyday foundation. As it is for normal to oily skin, I am not sure if it will work for dry-skinned people. Overall, it truly Fits Me!

Would I Recommend/Repurchase Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation 330 Toffee Caramel
I will certainly be repurchasing this foundation as it is quite hard to find an affordable drugstore foundation that matches your skin tone, providing a natural look and ideal for daily use. If any shade fits you, go for it as you have the best product in hand.
