|Sorry about the orangey hue, it seems my camera thought the foundation was orange too!|
|Maybelline Fit Me Foundation 115 Ivory || Blended left, unblended right|
Maybelline decided to confuse us all with their shade matching choices when it came to finding one that kind of matched me.
Of course my first step was choosing the fair category.

As you can see once blended, compared to my skin tone it's pretty oompa loompa-ish. The foundation itself when I did apply it to my face wasn't anything special. It blended ok, didn't really highlight any dry patches but there was something big it was lacking, although I can't put my finger on it. I'm glad I got the chance to test this though as it's not something I will be purchasing.
The good thing about the foundation is it's quite light, didn't break me out at all and the coverage is quite buildable if required (unless like me, it makes you look even more like an oompa loompa). The odd days I've left the foundation on for longer, it's probably lasted around 6 hours on my dry/normal skin. I've seen that they also do a powder and concealer which I may well try out at some point.
This will be my last post before Christmas now so I hope you all have a great Christmas! (or holiday season if you don't celebrate it) :) I will be spending it split between my family and my Boyfriend's and cannot wait now! I'm more excited than normal for some reason but mainly because of the time off work and the food, drink and family festivities.
