Review: L.A Girl Mattifying Liquid Foundation & Maybelline New York Fit Me Foundation

by - August 26, 2018

I HAVE BEEN AWAY for soooo long and it was unintentional..... life happened but it's great to be writing again. So I'm going to do something different by reviewing 2 different foundations at a time; L.A. Girl mattifying foundation and maybelline new york fit me foundation.

It has been a challenge for me to find a good foundation because of my super oily skin and most times I end up with either fake products or foundations that are not suitable for my skin type. I initially used a water based foundation which is actually not compatible with nigerian sun and in my desperate need to get another one and without research I bought the L.A Girl tube packaged foundation which the seller swore was matte and would be good on me 😩 Guys, after a month of usage, I did my research and finally got the maybelline fit me and I will be reviewing it too on this post. So leggo!

L.A. Girl Mattifing Foundation

Company Promises
  • 100% Natural Wear
  • Waterproof Oil Control

My Experiences 

First of all I think this is not a real product from LA Girl because during my findings and research I found out that all LA girl foundations are bottle packaged so I might go ahead and say this is a fake product. It didn't give me what I wanted so I have nothing good to say about it But here are few points to note if you still feel you should get it.

  1. Its suitable for people with dry to normal skin.
  2. It stains and rubs off on clothes
  3. Its oily, which is why I recommend people with oily skin to totally avoid it. It gave me a breakout 😔
  4. It does not have a lasting wear, you will need to powder your face after 3hrs.
In conclusion; I didn't like it and wouldn't recommend it to anyone unless you want something really affordable and won't be bothered about the experiences I listed above.
You can get L.A. Girl foundation for 2000 - 2,500 naira depending on your location. 

Maybelline New York Fit Me Foundation

Company Promises 
  • Matte + Poreless
  • For Normal To Oily Skin

My Experiences 
  • Maybelline fit me is a light weight foundation with a medium coverage, I didn't like it the first day I applied it but got the hang of it few days later.
  • It blends in easily and smoothly.
  • It doesn't give a very dry matte finish so I would say its a semi matte foundation.
  • It has a long lasting wear. I powered my face 7 hours later that day.
  • It does not come with a pump 👎 I mean!
  • You would have to be careful with the foundation because it runs fast to avoid making a mess.
In conclusion; I would recommend this foundation for people with normal to combination skin but those with very oily skin will have to use an oil control primer or setting powder and yes! I loved it and would definitely use it again.
You can get the maybelline fit me foundation for 3800 - 4500 naira depending on the area.

I hope you enjoyed both reviews? Have a wonderful week ahead.
