Maybe She Bought It In Boots..

 Maybelline BB Cream Dark - £7.99
Maybelline FIT Me Powder 355 Coconut - £5.99
Maybelline FIT Me Concealer Cafe - £5.99* (free)
*3for2 at Boots*
 
To be honest I will only use BB cream for times like if I'm with my boy & feel like I cant face being bare faced after my bath in the evening or days when I'm not leaving the house..I'll basically just put this is on, fix my eye brows and then I don't feel so hideous haha. But that's just me. So If you just want something really light, not greasy and that will give you the glow you need to feel human, its definitely one you should try.
The Maybelline FIT Me powder for some reason I'm really excited about. I never find shades to match me so swatching this was a wild card and I was more than impressed with the match, so at this point I knew I was in the offer haha. Although, I got a few FIT me foundation samples a few months ago & didn't like them, they were all too light or dark for me and I found the coverage weird so I'd kind of ruled the range out. I have now been corrected - The powder has a great feel and good medium coverage, the colour match = spot on. Obviously with these things its trial and error and you need to try before you buy, but if you can find a shade to match your skintone you should try this. I really love it, its on par with Mac Studio Pressed Powder!!
Maybelline FIT me Concealer, Again seriously impressed with the colour match. I'm also really loving the packaging for some reason. Basically I used to religiously use MAC Studio Finish Concealer, but their prices are ever increasing so I decided to try to compromise where I could.. Since I don't DO any other lipsticks than MAC and I cant physically live with out my Mineralize Skinfinish...I knew the cut wasn't going to be made there! The concealer had to be dropped. So I've been experimenting & trying out different concealers to find a new favourite, cheaper alternative..could this be the one? Its definitely doing the job for me right now. Have you tried any of the FIT Me range?

  5. I love BB creams but some UK products can look very orange on my pale skin but I have tried many brands from boots and superdrug and they always give a great make-up base or sometimes I will just use instead of make-up :D great post x

  10. I've bought the Fit Me concealer and I have difficulties having it match my skin colour because I am naturally tanned and it's annoying that I can never find the right shade when other girls do. What shade number is cafe? I bought Shade 35 x

  17. I definitely want to try the powder, everyonehas such good things to say about it I was just put off at first because me and the foundation did not get on. aha I do the same thing with bb creams and fixing my eyebrows, I've given up trying to explain to my boyfriend why I need to draw my eyebrows on when I've already got them, he doesn't understand about making them look better.

  19. Great post! I've always wondered wether a concealer is actually necessary, since all my life I've been using foundation only. I might try this one though!

  26. I've tried both the foundation (caramel 350) and the concealer (35), but after a few weeks I started to notice I was getting like a red rash on my cheeks and stopped using it. I loved it up until then though.

    I'm now using Revlon's Nearly Naked foundation and I'm in Loveeee! xx
