For the past few months I’ve been using my 17 Stay matter powder and I’ve been happy with it. It’s repurchased several times and had no desire to change anything until I spotted the new Maybelline Fit Me range when I recently ran out of the staple product. I wasn’t sure about colour so I chose the palest available on the stand, 120. I would usually apply this with a large duo fibre powder brush and I don’t have any issue with colour when I do this but if I use the powder puff provided it is a touch too dark.
I’ve heard others talk about issues with colour matching across this new range so I’ll be interested to see if I can find a good match in the liquid foundation. Because of the colour issue it’s not fantastic for on the go touch ups but if I was just looking for a setting powder it does the job and does provide more coverage than others I’ve used. My main problem is oil control and I feel that the 17 version has the edge here.
I love the Fit Me packaging and overall product but it’s not going to be a repurchase for me. I need a powder targeted at mattifying and this is great for setting my foundation but it’s not long before I need to touch up my t-zone so it’s not ideal for oily/combination.
