Most Helpful Positive Review Suprisingly lovely
I forgot to put on powder before work but fortunetly I work at a department store so I quickly grabbed Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless in Translucent. I've seen it around for a while but haven't bought it. I'm ghostly pale, being brit/irish will do that, and majority of products in America are far too dark for my skin. I love my pale skin and would love to embrace it so finding products is really a challenge. So I opted for the translucent, it's supposed to be without colour. But it goes on white. Which is perfect for me. It also makes my pores appear minimal to none. Which is lovely because I'm always worried that I've a strawberry nose. It keeps me matte for a good 4-5 hours. So if I need it again, then that's not a problem either. It's compact and comes with a compartment for a mirror and sponge. Plus the sponge it came with was perfect. Majority of the time you get this poorly made one that doesn't blend well into your skin. I'm a little disappointed that it doesn't live up to the claim it has about being 12 hours long. But hey, it does everything else for me so i'm not bothered.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not for me
The one redeeming factor about this powder is the Porcelain color is a perfect match for fair skin that has yellow undertones. Other than that, I tried this powder a few times with the matching foundation, and hated it every time. Now, my skin tends to be drier during winter and this stuff is supposed to be for normal to oily skin. So it could be that it just wasn't the right formula for my skin type. But either way, the coverage was not good, both foundation and powder clung to every little dry spot no matter how moisturized my skin was, and my face was far from matte and poreless. I do not recommend this product to anyone who has even the slightest bit of dryness to their skin, nor to someone who likes good coverage.

I love using this product over a stick or cream foundation when I am wearing heavy makeup or on it's own when I want a more natural look. It conceals acne well without piling up or drying out my skin even more.

Need basic cover, need some basic colors, need a cheep compact. This is for you! Make sure you have a good primer or base like elf pore putty (cheep) or tarts base tape (expensive) before putting it on. If you don't have any prime it does wear off by end of day and does not do
Coverage. Works well if you prime!!!
Solid for light coverage
Sarah from Chattanooga, TN
I quit wearing liquid foundation every day since COVID and have been wearing this as my daily base for work instead. It allows me to feel barefaced and avoid makeup zits from breathing into a mask while still covering over my pores. I have some acne scars and redness that this doesn't really quite cover, and before it wears down a bit I sometimes look a little like a ghost, but for just a slight blurring effect that still feels weightless I really like this.

Use as a bronzer
Karlths from Miami, FL
I've been using shade 332 for the longest and it's my favourite bronzer.
My favorite pressed powder!
Tee A from Maryland
I absolutely adore this pressed powder! Of course for me personally, it pairs very very well not only with the fit me foundation but the superstay foundation as well. Ulta is the only place that I can always find my correct shade in this powder.
A very good powder
Sofboi from Sanborn, NY
I like this powder. Doesn't leave any residue and sets my foundation really nicely. Wears nicely really well too. Pretty good shade range and VERY good price. I will continue using this product and will definitely repurchase.
Crissy from USA
One of the first powders I ever purchased and I still use to this day. You can really pack on the product which is really great for the days where I'm out and oily. It's small so fits great in your bag.

i'm 310/312 in this fit me range and i use 355 as a bronzer. such an affordable powder for a diffused matte coverage when your foundation is too greasy or not the coverage you want it to be.
Prettylolo12 from Los Angeles
I have always used this powder. This will be my 3rd purchase. But unfortunately this wasn't my color.

I LOVE this powder
Nat the Cap from Rowland Heights, CA
I use an ulta demi matte foundation and then apply the Maybelline powder while its still a bit tacky. I love the coverage because it doesn't leave behind any powder residue. Additionally, it doesn't move when I apply bronzer, blush, or highlight. It is truly matte and poreless.
Love This Stuff
Addie from Frisco
My go to powder- I put this on over my foundation and if there's something my liquid won't cover, this will top it off and fill in missing spots!
Perfect match for my MAC foundation
S M from Maryland
I love MAC products, but I was on my way to an event and needed a quick pressed powder for touch ups that wasn't too pricey. The Coconut one is perfect for me. Goes on silky and matches my MAC NW43 Studio Sculpt Foundation perfectly!
Unbeatable at the drugstore!!!
Courtney from San Diego
I've tried both drugstore and high end powders, and I really feel like this product cannot be beat at its price point. I have combo oily skin in my t-zone, and I love the blurring effect that this has on my skin! A little definitely goes a long way, but I don't feel like it oxidizes my foundation at all and the effect on my skin is nice. Maybelline does excellent powders I generally think, and I also really like the fit me loose powder.
Ellie from Seminole, Fl
This is the only powder I've used and I really like it. It goes on nicely and doesn't look thick.
