Maybelline Fit Me Stick Foundation

Maybelline Fit Me Shine-Free + Balance Stick Foundation is a stick foundation that claims to be medium coverage, non-comedogenic and lasts up to 10 hour. This stick foundation originally came in 10 shades but now available in 8 shades only.
It retails for USD 8.99 plus taxes and contains 9 gm of product.

I am normally shade 220 Natural Beige in Maybelline Fit me Dewy + Smooth and Maybelline Super Stay foundation. So I chose the same shade (220 Natural Beige) for this foundation as well. The shade seemed a little too light than its liquid counterpart but the color matched quite nicely once I set with powder.

I applied this foundation with a makeup sponge from Colourpop. The foundation glides smoothly and does not drag the skin. Even if its mention as a shine free stick foundation, the application feels really greasy and has a slip to it. The application was very patchy and the product lifts when I try to press with the sponge.

I tried this product with a flat topped foundation brush from BH cosmetics Rose collection brush set, buffing foundation brush from e.l.f. cosmetics. Still, nothing seems to work to make the application even. I also tried prepping my skin differently to see if the sunscreen or the primer was not working with this formula. But it does not made any difference in the finish or application. It was very oily on the skin so, I tried setting with a powder but the results were totally opposite to what I expected. I tried setting it with Maybelline Loose powder and it clings to every dry patches and really accentuates my texture and pores.

I really wanted this foundation to work since Maybelline Fit me range was such a hit. However, this formula is really difficult to work with. I tried switching up the primer, my makeup tools and setting powder as well but nothing seems to work. It wears horribly throughout the day, my skin looked like a grease ball after an hour wearing this. I would pass on this foundation and not recommend for combination/oily skin at all. Nonetheless, for dry skin people this might work out.
