I have been wearing this for about 3 months now in the shade 235, which I think is pretty close to my skin tone. This is a sheer to light coverage pressed powder. For me, in the summer time and when I mostly stay inside an office during the day, I would say it lasts about 4- 5 hours before I have to re-apply. This powder also gives an overall brightening effect (when you look closely, you can see very fine shimmery particles, "mica"-according to the ingredients).
This is a truly amazing powder all tough I never recommend using the little pad to apply make-up that it comes with. Pads carry around bacteria every single day you use them. So trust me it just adds up Yesterdays germs, last weeks germs, today's germs. Acne level at its total high! So use it with a normal brush and even it out And using it with a brush gives it a more natural look. always remember to always CLEAN YOUR BRUSHES!!!
I just recently started to use makeup again. I am a 235 from the fit me line and so far I love it! Its light and last a long time.
I have trouble finding powder light enough, and since they discontinued my shade in their Dream Matte line, I switched to this one. I'm actually the second lightest shade, which seems to be lighter than the "lightest". It doesn't give a lot of coverage but it'll work for now. Also, the puff that comes with it feels sort of rough.
An alright fit for me
My shade is 250 it is a little lighter than my skin and the next shade up is way to dark. The powder is light and i can hardly feel that i have it on.
Good Touch Up Powder.
I bought the shade 210 which is probably a shade lighter than my normal skin tone but it worked well for me since it provides very light coverage, if any. I mainly use this for controlling my shine throughout the day. Though it's not meant to mattify your skin, it does control my shine for a little bit but I do find that I have to retouch it within a few hours. I have switched powders to my Maybelline Dream Matte Powder but I do use this from time to time. I recommend it if you're looking for a good touch up powder but if you're looking coverage, this probably won't do it for you.
The Fit Me powder is perfect for my fair skin. It's impossible to find a VERY fair and give full coverage over my liquid foundation. I would recommend this to everyone! (even if the color is still a tad darker than my skin tone lol)
this stuff is great ! I have dry skin and like to use liquid as much as possible but sometimes in the morning all i want to do is a sweep of pressed powder. I bought this and it is great without drying me out to much. I have honey beige and its a great color and true "fit" for me.
purchased the Fit Me collection, well just the foundation and pressed powder. I did not like the foundation at all; it did not compliment my oily-combination skin very well. Although, the pressed powder works for me. Its not a favorite, maybe not something I would repurchase, but it gets the job done. I tend to use it as a setting powder and whenever I need to make my skin appear more matte. The formula itself is nice. It is not heavy and blends very well. Although, when I use it I use my own powder brush because I found the that the "puff" provided was a bit weak and thin. So overall its a nice product and I've hit pan, but I won't be going back for more.
Blends cleanly not chalky
I chose #130 Buff Beige. The compact is 2.5" x .75" and there is a 1.5" square window that allows you to see the shade and how much product is remaining. The compact is bi-level, open it to reveal the powder on the top level and lift at the hinge to reveal the powder poof and full size mirror. I like the fact the puff is in a separate part - it keeps my oil off of the powder plus I do not have to keep track of that thin piece of plastic you get with other compacts.
The puff is terry-like. It is very soft and grabs a good amount of powder. It can be cleaned or replaced. (Replacements sold separately.)
It is so silky and smooth, I love to apply it. It does not look chalky, I can use it on my bare skin or on top of foundation. It blends in cleanly.
At $7 it's a great price - I would buy it again.
