Went on good over the blur primer and set well with the fit me loose setting powder but 3hrs later started to shine and oil up eventually looking like I had nothing on, basically my face but very oily. I didn’t bother trying to pat or touch up bc it will only keep piling up at that point. I couldn’t afford to get the setting spray but maybe that would have helped some. I will say I don’t itch which is usually what happens within an hour, I’ve tried many expensive makeups and I got even oilier results. I love how the shade I used in the stick and powder did fit me very well.
I bought both toffee and coconut. They both appear lighter in person than it does on the website. When I opened the box, I thought I got the wrong product. I put both on and they make me look ashy. They don't seem warm to me at all. Fortunately, I can adjust my webcam and make my skin look warmer.
I DO like how the foundation feels on my skin. It feels very light as if I have on no foundation at all. It even goes on really smooth. Therefore, the product does get 3 stars. However, I WILL be getting my money back and/ or swapping these two for another. I'm really on the hunt for foundations that offer light coverage, have yellow undertones, and offers a range of products for dark skin.
I have used this stick foundation every since Max Factor went bye bye. It gives great coverage but the only problem with it is the tube that holds it. There is still half of the product left in it that can't be used unless you dig it out with something, then it becomes a mess. Maybelline needs to invent a new tube that lets you use ALL of what you paid for with ease. That's my only complaint.
tone matches, but forehead shines like a lightbulb
3 out of 5 stars

I have a love/hate with the Fit Me line. I love their powders (esp set and smooth), but their liquid foundations and I just can’t seem to get along. I was hoping the stick foundation would be a happy medium, so I bought it for my post-summer shade. It applies ok (with a mostly dry sponge), but does nothing for my oily skin. My forehead shines like a brand new light bulb after a few hours. Gonna try it with the Maybelline Loose Powder, but not holding my breath.

This is a really good foundation stick. I really like the texture of the foundation stick. It definitely helps with my oily areas on my face. I only use it for those spots. It's very affordable and easy to apply.
Please don't ever stop making the stick form of the FitMe foundations! I love the liquid foundation and wear it mostly in the cooler seasons. I cannot live without the stick foundation in the hotter summer months. Every time I wear this foundation I always get compliments on my skin. It is super easy to apply and blend in with your fingers, giving your skin a beautiful, natural looking coverage that is buildable. I don't understand other reviews that say it leaves them looking cakey. The product itself blends smoothly into the skin. It's a gorgeous product that will leave your skin looking flawless. I wear a lot of high-end designer makeup, but this is my Holy Grail product.
I bought this a while ago because it looked like it addressed my skin issues. Just my luck it made some worse. First, I love the application and the smooth creaminess. The shade is lovely however I will say that if I apply this to heavily to my face it looks like a wet mask. My biggest issue is that the Fit Me balance and shine free for combination skin goes on nicely, I put moisturizer on and when it’s mostly absorbed I put a line of the stick about 2 inches long and blend with a damp foundation sponge until covers 2/3-3/4 of my face. If I use more than that and the Fit Me looks streaky and some of it settles in my fine and not so fine lines and pores and any blemishes. Lucky me. In any case the Fit Me stick also stains everything; wash clothes, clothes, and my pillow case if I don’t completely remove ALL my makeup. Since the tube I have is different from the one on the website I’m hoping that all the things I love are still be in the formulation and the the things I don’t have love for are gone.
