REVIEW | Fit Me Foundation Review

Everyone has their beauty weaknesses, and I have to admit, foundation is mine. I do not have a holy grail foundation so I'm constantly searching. I quite like Revlon's Colour stay, but I don't love it. On my ever present search for my  foundation, I found Maybelline were sending out samples of their new Fit Me foundation via Facebook, so of course I ordered one. It took ages to come, but what can I expect from a free sample.

I ordered shade 115 Ivory, as I have the skin of the living dead, which I actually haven't seen in store yet. Eventhough this is the lightest shade (of the 12 available shades), it is still not quite light enough for me.

My arm is a little bit darker than my face, so you can imagine how it looked  when used in the correct manner.  I am used to this issue however, never really finding a foundation pale enough to me, so I just added a tiny bit of moisturiser and even less Barry M's Foundation Creme in white (this stuff is very thick and cakey, hence adding moisturiser as well). This made the foundation a lovely colour.

Maybelline say this is a gel foundation. I'm no make-up artist or expert so I do not know the pro's and con's of this, but I have to say I like the formula (before adding my own moisturiser/foundation to it). I applied it with my Real Techniques Stippling Brush. It went on smooth with no streaks and I would say this was probably a medium/build-able coverage.

As I have a sample size, I cannot make a comment about the packaging other than when I've seen it in store, its looked lovely. The sample came in a lovely wee envelope/package so thumbs up for that Maybelline.

This is the foundation mixed with Barry M's white foundation and Soap and Glory's Catch A Wrinkle In Time Moisturiser. 

I do quite like this foundation, but it's not likely I would purchase a full size one, purely because of the colour. If it was a tad lighter I think it would be lovely for me. The formula and coverage are nice, so  for anyone with a bit more colour in their skin, id recommend it!

Anyone got any suggestions for a pale-but-not-white foundation? Love this new Fit Me foundation?

Hope everyone has a lovely New Years! 

Our first Christmas.

This year, me and Liam had our first Christmas alone. Usually we go to one of our families homes but we both had to work, and didn't quite have the pennys for trains/buses/boats to either Yorkshire or Shetland; So a quiet, couple-y one it was!

It was really lovely and I'm very proud of how tasty my cooking was! We will be eating turkey for atleast a week now though. Here's a few photographs from the day (taken on my new lens from my lovely fiancĂ©!)

Although we both missed our families we did have a really lovely day.

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas, surrounded by the ones they love.
