My Face Today! Wearing Maybelline Fit Me Foundation & Concealer..

(I took these photos by a window in the late afternoon with no flash. The lighting looks different in some photos because it was a little cloudy out and the sun would come and go.)

and Rocky wouldn't stop biting the curtains and my feet, so I held him for a few pictures.. lol

Update: My thoughts about Maybelline Fit Me still remain the same. I've been wearing it more and more and I love it.. love the consistency and coverage.. but my only compaint is still that it simply fades too quickly and I have to touch up a few times a day..

In other news, lol.. I made a purchase last night on Sephora.com with one of my Christmas gift cards! I'm a little sad I didn't get to order a foundation. I REALLY wanted to try Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation.. but I'm stuck on which color to get.. So Instead I held off and ordered a bronzer, blush, a couple of eye shadows and a lipstick! I can't wait to haul all of the products and show you swatches!

And by the way, did you notice I'm sporting a bold lip again? I think 2011 might entail trying lots of new colors. I love NYX Doll Pink.. I've had it for over a year though and this may be my third time wearing it. I'm going to keep it in my bag and try wearing it more often.. I think the color suits me well.. :)


  1. i like the lip color and i love your jacket - h&m? lol

  2. Thank you!! Yes H&M.. lol. I haven't worn it in months, but I just dug it out of my closet today. :)

  3. The color looks great on you. LOVE YOUR HAIR! LOVE IT! I'm so glad I found your blog, it's so great.


  4. Thanks for the review. Your skin is flawless. As usual i adore your lips.

  5. Looks great on you! I am not surprised about the wear time of the foundation. That has been my experience with Maybelline foundations, so I quit buying them.

  6. I loveeee the lip color!!!! You look sooo beautiful!!!!


  7. the pink is fabulous on you! a lot of people like the fit me foundation, but i can't stand it. it made my face too oily.. hm. anyway, love that jacket you have on!

  8. I love how your lips stand out! Cute color.
    Your pictures look amazing :D

    That foundation works sooo good.. very flawless!

  9. You're right NYX Doll Pink really does suit you. It looks great and I love the fullness of your lips. I wish mine were as full as yours lol.

  10. I'm loving the bold lip. NYX has an amazing selection. Doll Pink looks very pretty on you.


  11. That lipstick looks so great on you, love the colour. And nyx lippies are such good quality for the price they are!

  12. Dolly Pink is such a perfect pink lipgloss!
    This look is gorgeous by the way!

  13. That lipstick suits you well, you look stunning!
    Gorgeous as ever!

  14. omg, i love your lip color. definitely rocking that magenta/bright pink

  15. this pink is gorgeous on you! you definitely suit darker/brighter lips!

  16. the pink lips look gorgeous on you!

  17. you really look gorgeous here <3 love the lipstick

  18. u are so pretty,and i love that lip colour on u

  19. You look gorgeous! I love the makeup! :)

  20. Love your necklace and jacket, and your hair looks gorgeous! & the makeup ofcourse! x

  21. Love the bold lip on you. Looks gorgeous!

  22. I definitely love this whole bold lip thing you're doing. It's not red, but it's close and that's a start!

  23. have you tried Lancome teint miracle foundation? it's looove. (like if Nars SG and Armani LSF had a baby) and they have such a good shade selection for yellow undertones

  24. love the follow up review. finally picked it up and really enjoy it :)

  25. I just bought this at Target the other day. Had a $2 off coupon and the foundation is so cheap already like $5-$6 I think @ Target. So couldn't pass it up! And wow, you were right. Really good foundation! I love it! I think it looks better on me than the Revlon Colorstay! I would love to use Revlon's Colorstay but I can't seem to ever find my correct color match! Anyhow the Maybelline Fit Me is the perfect coverage for me and doesn't look like I have makeup on, so my husband saids ;) I also applied a finishing powder to set it, the Maybelline one for mattifying. Looked so nice!

    You were also right on how long it lasts though, mine started to fade away about 3-4 hours later I believe. My face needed some touch up. Well, you def get your moneys worth! But overall I loved it!

    1. Also, one thing I was a little irritated with was it made my skin oily, like around the nose and cheek area. That would be one of my complaints.
