This Fan-Favorite Foundation Now Comes in 16 New Shades

The perfect foundation can make or break your perfect makeup look. A shade that’s even slightly off can end up looking “fake”—trust me, everyone can notice if your face is a different color than your neck (this is why you should put foundation over your neck too)! In a perfect world, everyone would have their perfect foundation, and we would all be walking around with makeup that’s permanently #onfleek. Unfortunately, there’s an infinite number of different skin tones and textures, and only a set number of foundations available to us.

The beauty world is making strides to solve the foundation dilemma. Many people who can’t find their perfect shade opt to mix multiple shades together to create their perfect shade. Unfortunately, for those of you who are like me, and had a difficult time mixing paint in middle school art class, this technique seems complicated, and likely easy to mess up. Others opt for companies to do the work for them, such as Lancôme, which now offers a custom foundation made to match your skin tone. This too, has its drawbacks. At $80 a bottle, this option is unaffordable to many.

For those of you who are still on the hunt for your dream foundation, Maybelline may have the answer! The brand announced via Instagram that they will be expanding their fan-favorite Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation line with 16 new shades, increasing your likelihood of finally getting that perfect color. The new shades are catered to customers who have yellow undertones or are between shades.

Fans were thrilled with the news, excited at the prospect that their match may soon be available at Walmart and other drugstores for as low as $5.49. The oil free foundation claims it “blurs the skin and creates a natural-looking matte finish,” making it a favorite among beauty bloggers, YouTubers, and plain old makeup lovers like you and me. It gives many luxury foundations a run for their money with its beloved formula, impressive shade range and affordable price tag!
