Maybelline Fit Me Set + Smooth Pressed Powder Compact Review, Swatches, Price, Buy Online India

It’s twelve in the night and I’m procrastinating because my bestie is sitting next to me and distracting me from writing. So I finally decided to sing her a lullaby and put her to sleep so that I can write in peace. I’ve been meaning to get around to reviewing this product for a really long time and now finally I’ve buckled up and belted it out. I’ve already reviewed the Maybelline Fit Me Foundations, Concealers and Blushes and today I have the Maybelline Fit Me Compact Powders.

Packaging

The Maybelline Fit Me compact powder comes in a black square packaging with a clear lid. The packaging has the Fit Me Logo printed on it. I think the packaging is pretty basic for the price we’re paying for it. The Maybelline White Super Fresh compacts had a better packaging according to me. The Compact comes with the pan on the top and a mirror and a sponge compartment on the bottom. The lid closes with a click and is very secure to even travel with. The plastic feels a little flimsy and I need to be a little careful every time I use it lest I break it.

Shades

The Maybelline Fit Me comes in five shades in India but wherever I went there were only four shades so I think the fifth shade is not even available anywhere. The shades are called 120 Classic Ivory, 130 Buff Beige, 220 Natural Beige, 230 Natural Buff, 310 Sun Beige.
The international counterpart of the Fit Me powders have 18 shades which makes 5 look like a disappointment in India.

The shades Maybelline Fit Me Powder comes in India are just way too light to be used on Indian Skin tones. As you can see from the swatches, I wouldn’t even find a match for myself even though I’m fair-medium skinned. I would just call these powders white. I’m pretty disappointed with the shades. I’m not even going to try and describe the colors at all as they’re all just varying amounts of white.

Texture

The Maybelline Fit Me Compact is very finely milled and pressed. The pan kicks up a lot of product when swirled with a brush and the texture when applied is very powdery and just sits on the skin. You would need a finishing spray of some sort when you use this powder to get rid of the powdery look from the skin.

The Verdict: :fs: :fs: :fs:

Let us just skip the pros and cons of this product since I don’t think this range of powders has a good match for any Indian skin tone unless of course you are super duper pale. I certainly did not find a match for me in the powders and sadly even though the product does work well for some situations, it being so white just does not make it something I would want to buy for myself.
  • They look quite pigmented!

    I had read rave reviews about the product on other blog but looking at the swatches I don’t think i will get a match :(
