Maybelline Fit Me Bronzer comes in a two compartmented sleek bronze rectangular case with a see through lid each compartment holding bronzer & an applicator brush respectively. The brush is not the softest I have seen but then it doesn’t go too bad on skin either. A good option for on go touch ups when you want to travel light. And same goes with the packaging also, it’s light & slim which slips easily to a remote corner of your purse. It’s a sleek, simple & very functional packaging.
The bronzer is available in three shades:
Light Bronze, Medium Bronze & Deep bronze.
I picked up Medium Bronze (I got paler during my stay in USA) as it looked quite pigmented in pan (blame it on unavailability of testers!) but it was a whole different story later! The shade comes out as a light wash of gold on my skintone. For the swatches I have layered it some 5-7 times to show up that much, which pretty much says everything… I think it will be more suitable for paler tones but the way it looks in pan can mislead easily.
Formula wise, the bronzer has got a considerably smooth & soft texture without being powdery but not silky soft either. The formula blends in effortlessly. It does contain scattered microscopic golden shimmers which barely make their presence post blending giving a nice satin finish. The point where it loses marks heavily is the pigmentation which is below average in this case. I had to literally dig in my brush… I mean swirl in so intensely to get some colour on my skin. And same goes with the wear power where it barely stays for couple of hours. The only good points I can think of is the nice texture & the ease of blendability! Apart from that I doubt that if the Deep Bronze will show up on my skintone (NC42). The product/ Fit Me range is yet to be released in India & I hope to see some more additions to the shade card here with improved formula or else the product is a total dud for me.
- Sleek, elegant & easy to locate packaging.
- Soft & smooth texture.
- Blends effortlessly.
- Below average pigmentation.
- Poor wear power.
- The shade doesn’t show up in any on my NC42 skintone.
It’s a total dud for me right from formula to the shade range. I think better pigmentation could have worked out the shade range here but unfortunately formula has nothing to offer!
