Maybelline Fit Me Pressed Powder Review

I was looking for a pressed powder compact and wanted to try a drugstore brand to see if I could find somthing that I like and maybe save a little money, especially these days.  Lately, there seems to be a lot of new products out there so I thought it would be a perfect time.  I decided on the new Fit Me! pressed powder makeup from Maybelline after seeing quite a few commercials.

There are quite a few colors to choose from so that you can find a great color for your complexion.  That was one of the main reasons I switched to department store makeup years ago - because it is just so hard to find a nice color that makes you look natural and not made up.  Nobody likes that line that you see between your face and your neck showing everyone that you are wearing the wrong color of makeup. But, we all know how expensive pressed powder can be at the department store and I was looking forward to finding something that I can switch to and maybe save some money.

I applied the pressed powder with my makeup brush instead of the powder puff because that's how I like to apply my powder.  The pressed powder goes on really nice and smooth and gives a descent amount of coverage.  I always like my pressed powder to give me just enough coverage to look natural and even out my skin tone since I don't wear foundation.  This powder does just that.  It isn't shimmery, but I noticed a nice dewiness that I didn't expect.  So when I am in a hurry or when I don't want to wear too much makeup - like when I go to work, I can even skip my bronzer and it still looks great.  

I have to say that I am pleasantly surprised with the Fit Me pressed powder.  I wasn't expecting to like it so much.  Plus, at around $8 or so (depending where you shop) you can't go wrong.  This is a great compact for a drugstore brand and if you go through pressed powder like I do, you won't spend a small fortune buying it.
