Aqua / Water / Eau Cyclohexasiloxane Nylon-12 Isododecane Alcohol Denat. Cyclopentasiloxane Peg-10 Dimethicone Cetyl Peg/Ppg-10/1 Dimethicone Peg-20 Polyglyceryl-4 Isostearate Disteardimonium Hectorite Phenoxyethanol Magnesium Sulfate Disodium Stearoyl Glutamate Hdi/Trimethylol Hexyllactone Crosspolymer Titanium Dioxide Methylparaben Acrylates Copolymer Tocopherol Butylparaben Aluminum Hydroxide Alumina Silica Glycerin.
This foundation comes in a sleek rectangular shaped glass bottle with a black colored screw cap which has FIT Me written on it. The packaging is similar to the Lakme perfecting liquid foundation but this one is more sleek if compared to that. The shade number and name is written on the top of the cap. There is no pump provided i.e. the only drawback I found in packaging. I have to take the foundation on back of my hand and then if I need more, I have to pour some again on my hand which is a bit messy and sometimes lead to wastage of product too.
How I Feel About Maybelline Fit Me Foundation 230 Natural Buff :
Oily Combination Skin In Summer : I first moisturize my skin with Neutrogena oil free moisturiser , then apply some sunscreen which is obviously matte or oil free or both, then definitely prime if I need so and then pour some foundation at the back of my hand and apply in dots all over my face and neck and then just blend with the help of a foundation brush or fingers or a damp sponge. It works beautifully with any method. It does not cling to my smile lines and doesn`t leave any dry patches. Then I top it with some matte compact by using a large fluffy brush coz It would be heavy otherwise with the powder puff. It stays 5-6 hours with no touch ups required and then a touch up and I can go for 2 hours more.
Dry Skin In Winter : I first moisturise with my lakme peach milk moisturiser, then put the lakme sunscren and then I skip primer coz in winters, It stays whole day like 8-10 hours easily with no compact no primer underneath.
Texture : The texture is liquid which requires the bottle to be shaked up really well before use. It blends out so beautifully with any method like fingers, brush or even sponge. I like using real techniques expert face brush these days coz they provide great coverage without looking caked up. It provides a natural matte finish and the shade just FITs Me as If Its my skin just like second skin.
Coverage : The coverage is pretty nice. It covers pores, acne marks, scars etc and provides medium coverage. It can be build up easily to get the full coverage if one needs so. As it is a matte foundation, but it gives such a natural finish and it is a must have foundation for the oily skin girls out there.

All in all, this is a great foundation for oily skinned people in summers especially as it gives a natural matte finish without looking made up and almost every skin tone can find their fit in the new shades introduced. The texture is liquid and easily blendable, also the coverage is buildable too. Just a pump dispenser is not there, I can ignore it just because of the finish, texture, coverage and staying power.
