Maybelline: Fit ME Pressed Powder- 330 Toffee Caramel | Swatched

As I mentioned in some of my previous posts I am always on the look out for affordable alternatives of the high-end products and another such attempt was made here. In theory the Fit ME range by Maybelline makes great sense but as usual India Market did not get the full shade-range, which was quite disappointing. Out of the one’s available I was able to try the Shade 330 Toffee Caramel.

Maybelline-Fit Me Pressed Powder in shade 330 Toffee Caramel | Price & Product Details

Product Description

It comes in a square plastic packaging. The top compartment holds the powder in a pan and the bottom holds the sponge. The bottom unfortunately does not have perforations so the sponge runs the risk of not drying if used wet. The mirror is fixed below the powder compartment to keep the lid transparent. This way you see the colour of the powder but have to keep on closing the mirror while dipping into the pan.

It doesn’t have any perceptible fragrance which is a definite point in its favor. The product is surprisingly good quality. It is very finely milled and gives good coverage. It spreads very easily and can be built up without looking excessive.

It has a silky- semi matte finish and does a good job of minimizing the appearance of pores, this is perhaps due to the fine milling so it’s equally important to remove it completely at the end of the day. The mattifying effect isn’t stark as some of the other products and gives a healthy looking finish to the skin.

Maybelline-Fit Me Pressed Powder in shade 330 Toffee Caramel | Texture – Finely Milled Powder yet barely any fall out noticed.

The pigmentation is pretty good even when the powder is used by itself. These powders from the Fit Me range have a complimentary liquid foundation shade and are meant to be used with each other. I don’t have this particular foundation but it works equally well over other foundations. It can also be used with a brush for a lighter, more natural finish and to set the concealer. It lasts for 3-4 hours after which I would recommend you re-apply.

I have yet again gone wrong with the shade and 330 Toffee Caramel is considerably dark for me. So after trying to make it work in various ways I have figured out it works best when I use it for subtle contouring & bronzing using a brush. This shade will work best for MAC NC 42 – 44 skin shade range folks.
