IMG_1444I’ve always been a fan of drugstore makeup just that all the ones (foundations) I’ve tried just never worked well for me in Nigeria, from revlon to L’Oréal they all just melted off in the scorching sun (who can relate😞).

So I stuck with high-end (Lancôme, MAC, Black up) and my pocket paid the price.

Since I moved to where its much colder, I decided to try drugstore again.
I opted for the Maybelline Fit me foundations and concealers . I bought them from superdrug and they cost £6.99 and £5.99 respectively.

My review
Foundation: (Approx ₦3,600) I got the shade 350 caramel and 356 warm coconut. My actual shade is somewhere in between so I mix both.IMG_1447IMG_1445

Texture & Finish : The foundation is light weight and Matte.

Coverage: It claims it’s medium-full coverage but I found it’s no where near FULL coverage (to me), certainly buildable but I like straight to the point coverage or maybe I’m just used to the Marykay/Blackopal/MAC kind of thick coverage. 

Verdict: Fair price, a bit too cool toned for me, buildable and light weight which is nice. I rate it 6 out of 10.

The concealers: £5.99 each (approx ₦3,100)IMG_1446

Texture and finish:  Rich, covers very well, and doesn’t crease. I got them in the shade 45,50,55.

Verdict: Fair price, wand applicator is great, applies smoothly, wide colour range and excellent quality. I rate it a 9/10.
Would I recommend? Absolutely. ……
