Maybelline FIT Me! Shine Free Foundation Sticks

Shades 110, 220

It looks like Foundation Sticks are making a comeback and that is such a good thing. It's been so hard to find them for a few years , especially since Max Factor took their amazing Pan Stick overseas. Yes, Tom Ford makes one and it's divine, but it's also $ 78.  New to the scene awhile back was one from Flower Beauty and now we have Maybelline's FIT Me ! Shine Free Stick Foundation .

Part of the FIT Me ! line  these new gel based, oil free  sticks like much of FIT Me ! , are  lighter coverage. Not sheer but light to light/medium  and coverage is buildable .  They have a powder soft finish but aren't dry at all and while matte , it's more of a dewy matte.  In fact they feel creamy on and then set.  As with most sticks these are easy to blend .

The center of each stick has the Anti Shine Core which contains absorbent powder and silica for shine control .   I have pretty oily skin this  time of year so I could really test that anti shine . Overall they did a solid job. I had less  oil breakthrough  on the T- Zone and that area stayed looking good  for hours. That's good for me.

One of the best things about a foundation stick is the  ease of touch ups and that's where I will find the most use for them. It's so easy to carry these in a bag , or grab and dab on when you're about to run out the door but need a little refresh.  The size makes for portability without weight or bulk. Each stick measures just over 3 " long.

FIT Me ! Shine Free Foundation Sticks will be available in July for $ 8.99

There are 12 shades.

If Maybelline was cruelty-free, I'd definitely be checking out this line. Stick foundations are such a handy tool for highlighting and contouring, yet they can be so hard to find nowadays
