Maybelline New York Fit Me Set + Smooth Pressed Powder “120 Classic Ivory” Review, Swatch and Price
Hello my lovelies 🙂
Am so very excited that Maybelline finally decided to launch their very popular and much-awaited Fit Me range *my lovely Aditi already gifted me the concealer wayy before from abroad* and I was extremely keen to get my paws on the whole range, especially the pressed powder which everyone compared with the very famous NARS setting powder. I visited my nearest counter and very satisfied with the texture, got my shade in 120 classic ivory. 🙂
What Maybelline Says:

My Take on Maybelline New York Fit Me Set + Smooth Pressed Powder “120 Classic Ivory” :
Maybelline New York Fit Me Set + Smooth Pressed Powder is housed in a square black flip-top compact with 2 separate compartments- 1 for housing a big square mirror and the powder and the other for the nice soft puff. 🙂 Very cute and convenient packaging. 🙂
The texture of the pressed powder is very very finely milled, soft and sheer without any scratchy or powdery feel even when I dabbed it heavily all across my face! Sinks into my skin very naturally leaving behind no white cast- an ideal setting powder I would say!

Being such a sheer powder though, it offers almost no coverage which might not be ideal for people who like to use their compact to hide skin imperfections and we come back to its best purpose, as a perfect setting powder. 🙂 It also does not control oil much *seeing that my t-zone still acquires a shine after a couple of hours even in this dry season* and hence suitable more for normal-dry skinned beauties throughout the year.
My concealer does not budge or smudge and stays pretty much in its place for 4-5 hours at a stretch with Maybelline New York Fit Me Set + Smooth Pressed Powder on top and I am pretty happy with that!
Pros of Maybelline New York Fit Me Set + Smooth Pressed Powder “120 Classic Ivory” :

- The texture is lovely, light and sheer, getting absorbed instantly into skin leaving behind no powdery feel or whitish cast <3
- Does not dry out skin.
- Sets mae up beautifully!
- Ideal for normal-dry skinned ladies 🙂
- Not expensive
Cons of Maybelline New York Fit Me Set + Smooth Pressed Powder “120 Classic Ivory” :

Do I recommend?
I was searching for a drugstore setting powder which would look natural yet do the job perfectly in the dry seasons and yeshh i have stumbled upon this one. 🙂 A lovely texture, beautiful setting capacity and a perfect natural finish makes Maybelline New York Fit Me Set + Smooth Pressed Powder a must-have for us!
Will be back with loads more! Till then, keep smiling and keep buying stuff. 😀 bu-byee

[alert-note]Love the finish. 😀 I prefer such light weight pressed powders to heavy duty compacts. Will keep this in mind once I am done with my Revlon nearly naked pressed powder. Nice review Agni. 🙂 [/alert-note]
