Today, I’m sharing with you the drugstore ‘your skin but better’ combination that I’ve been loving.
I love wearing a lightweight base like a BB/CC creme or a tinted moisturizer; especially now as we finally have summer like weather here in Toronto. My issue is that sometimes, I want a little bit more coverage than the lightweight base provides. Until recently, I’ve been using a liquid concealer like the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer to provide additional coverage, which worked ok but never wowed me.
Enter the Maybelline Fit Me Shine-Free Foundation, which I picked up during Shoppers Drug Mart’s huge sale on Maybelline products. It was a complete spur of the moment purchase (mainly because it was only $6.99), I honestly expected to hate it and pass it on to a friend. Instead, it’s become a key piece in my makeup collection.
I have been using the Fit Me Stick alongside my favourite ‘your skin but better’ base, the Garnier Ultra-Lift Transformer, which I have raved about repeatedly on the blog (review here). It’s just been the perfect combination for the ‘your skin but better’, without being to heavy. I use the stick where I want a little bit of additional coverage, especially on my cheeks where I have some redness.
The Fit Me Stick feels like a stick foundation and a primer mixed together. It applies so smoothly to the face, and blends beautifully. While I wouldn’t use it as an all over foundation, it’s perfect for the spots where you need a little bit of extra coverage. Basically, instead I use it as a stick concealer, and it works like a charm.
So there you have my go-to combination that I’ve been loving it.
Have you tried the Maybelline Fit Me Stick?
