When I came across this new Maybelline Fit Me Shine Free Foundation stick I was instantly sucked in. I figured I would give it a try, hoping it could compare and maybe for a Make UP Forever Mat Velvet Plus dupe AND especially for the drug store price (around $7 at Wal-Mart). 

It stick comes in 12 oil-free shades. The Maybelline website claims:
Our first gel stick foundation with an anti-shine core
Fresh gel foundation blends to a flawless matte finish
Lightweight powders in the anti-shine core instantly dissolve excess oil

I wore this for the second time today. I wanted to give it a real shot. I wore it once to work and once for just a easy day running errands. 

It does apply with a nice matte, non sticky finish. I loved the finish. Did remind of the Mat Velvet +. I got "shiny" but NOT oily around the 3 hour mark. I *DID* set this with a powder, but as I have previously state, I have super oily skin. I ended up having to blot oil away and re apply powder around the 5-6 hour mark, which for me is quite normal. The Mat Velvet Plus however keeps me matte for about 7-8 hours before having to blot. 

The foundation doesnt have any weird smells and does apply like a dream. The gel core is smooth and does seem to work. The coverage is not amazing, more sheer to medium. You can apply a second layer for more coverage in certain spots. 

For my trouble spots, I apply light concealer first and then again after the foundation if needed. 

I also found that it didn't break down or get muddy and my blush is still visible.

I would recommend this for those like me that are oily and maybe don't want to wear their "higher end" foundation day to day.

Does anyone know if this is really oil free?
