Hi beautiful readers,
Today I’m reviewing the Maybelline Fit Me Powder in the Shade 100 ‘Translucent’. After running out of my highly overpriced and highly overrated Laura Mercier Setting Powder, I decided to give the drug store a chance. After all, why does a setting powder need to be $40+?! There are so many affordable options out there, and a simple setting powder doesn’t need to break the bank.
I snagged this for $7CAD on sale at my local drug store. It is normally priced at around $12CAD. I picked up the Translucent shade as I dont like when a powder can change the look of my under eyes. I’m in love with the Maybelline Fit Me concealer, so trying the powder was the obvious next step. I bought this mainly for setting my under eye area.
-Pressed powder = less mess!
-Sets my makeup perfectly
-Helps prevent creasing BETTER than the Laura Mercier powder did
-Can be used for baking- won’t over dry under eyes
-The compact contains a mirror
-No flash back!
-Does lighten makeup slightly if used to bake
-Applicator sponge isn’t very good at all
This product is a solid purchase and at $7 it beat my Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder by a landslide. This powder does NOT give me crepey or over dry under eyes like the Laura Mercier powder did, and if you bake with it, creases are barely there! This powder is great for baking and really does an amazing job of keeping my makeup in place.
I found the applicator sponge to be a bit annoying. It would leave lines on my face from use and it would steal my makeup away. I actually switched it with the Laura Mercier Powder Puff and found that it works amazing with the puff (even better than applying with a brush too). I highly recommend to buy it to use with this powder. It’s about $8 sold seperately. You must try this powder you guys!
