This Is The Best Maybelline Foundation For Oily Skin

If you have oily skin you may find yourself choosing between two beauty possibilities: do you leave your skin bare or take your chances on a foundation formula that can make you break out?

Far too many foundations, and particularly liquid foundations, contain ingredients like mineral oil that can clog pores and open the floodgates for pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads — and when you already have an oily complexion, you’re even more susceptible to these skin issues. At the same time, you want your skin to look flawless and a bit of concealer, a layer or two of foundation, and powder to set your look are key cosmetics that enhance your skin’s natural glow and minimize the appearance of large pores and blemishes.

It’s completely possible to keep foundation in your cosmetics bag if you have oily skin, as long as you’re relying on quality ingredients that will mattify your skin and prevent breakouts. And if there’s a better foundation for oily skin than Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation, we have yet to find it. Here are the best things about this incredible liquid foundation, which is ideal for normal to oily skin.

1) It’s Easier Than Ever To Find Your Shade

With 16 new shades just released this year, Maybelline continues to expand its selection of foundation colors so that everyone, regardless of skin tone, can find the perfect match. But even if you see a hue that looks right in the bottle, that doesn’t always mean it will blend right in with your skin. Maybelline’s online tool provides a quick quiz that asks you questions about your undertone and skin condition in the morning and at the end of the day to hook you up with your ideal formula and shade.

2) Its Formula Contains Micro Powders That Control Shine

One of the ingredients in Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation is micro powders that blur out imperfections and pores, making them seem a lot smaller. These powders also work to make your skin matte and control excess shine. Ingredients include dimethicone, titanium dioxide, and silica.

3) It’s One Makeup Option That Suits Most Budgets

Let’s face it: makeup can get pretty expensive — and the price only seems to go way up when you’re shopping for a product that addresses a specific concern, like oily skin. This foundation clocks in at around $8, which makes it affordable for most budgets.

4) It Has Buildable Coverage

Some foundations are heavy and a little goes a long way. But if you prefer a lightweight formula that requires layering to create more coverage, Fit Me is the perfect option. It can be built up to full coverage, according to reviewers, but it’s also silky enough to provide a minimal amount of makeup, which is great if you live in a hot climate.

5) Fit Me Is Dermatologist Approved

When it comes to testing, Maybelline Fit Me has been put through the ringer. It’s an allergy-free brand that is non-comedogenic (meaning it won’t clog pores) and dermatologist approved.
