Review Maybelline Fit Me Pressed Powder

It's taken me a while to do this post because shortly after i got this i found the L'Oreal BB Powder and fell in love, and this one sort of got left in the dust. However i have recently finished that and I'm waiting for it to go on sale again since $26 is a bit expensive for me, so this one is back in rotation along with my Ben Nye loose powder which i will review after it's gotten a bit more use. 

This is a two layer compact with a powder puff and mirror in the bottom section and a circle of powder in the top layer. It's fairly creamy despite being a powder and is very blend able and if you require extra coverage it's not too difficult to build up some more color. I particularity like that it's a matt finish with no sparkle at all despite what looks like some sparkle in the product itself, i suspect that a darker shade would therefore make a nice contouring shade if you felt so inclined. (overall there are 18 shades though i am not sure how many of those made it to Australia as i have seen different shades at different stores). The shade i have is 920 Classic Ivory. There are 9g of product in this compact which is a pretty good deal.

As you may be able to see in the photos it's very densely packed and using a brush on it (kabuki) brings up no extra powder so it looks like it will last quite a while. Overall i do like it, but i like the L'Oreal better as it just seems more natural on my skin where this can sometimes look a bit too powdery and feel a ittle heavy as a result. It's decent enough but not anything special, use it if you don't have a favorite or are looking for something new to try.
