Maybelline's Fit Me Now In Philippines + Meet 10 Make IT Happen Girls

Thursday, June 8, 2017 Philippines


The Fit Me Collection by Maybelline New York were considered must-haves from other countries and users gave amazing feed backs for years now and ever since then, most of us Filipinas had been wishing that it would be brought here in our home land. The only Fit Me product that we have in the Philippines that recently became available is their Fit Me Concealer (which is a famous NARS dupe). 

Last June 7 2017 at Sara Black Photography Studio in Makati, our prayers had been answered when I got an invitation as part of the Maybelline Squad. You know why? It is because the most awaited and highly-anticipated products from Maybelline New York just brought the rest of Maybelline Fit Me Collection franchise here in the Philippines with a BANG!

Watch my short video coverage of the event here: 

Along with the franchise came the Fit Me Liquid Foundation, Fit Me Foundation Stick and Fit Me Pressed Powder. Of course, they still included the Fit Me Concealer during the launch. It is hard to find the perfect fit when it comes to foundations and powders because we all have different skin tones and finding the best match is nearly impossible with the limited range of shades available in the Philippines. Fret no more because Maybelline Fit Me offers a wide range of shades that we all could try and test to find the perfect match! 

"Most of the time, Filipinas are offered only about four foundation shades to choose from, which makes it a real challenge to find their perfect shade. As Fit Me comes in 10 shades to choose from, Filipinas can finally easily find their FIT. What is even more exciting is that the Fit Me line that we're bringing in here offers a Matte + Poreless finish, which is suitable for the Filipina skin.", said by Ms. Bianca Sing, Maybelline's Junior Product Manager of Maybellne. 

To test and check what shades of the Maybelline Fit Me Line I should use, I had a make over done by make-up artist, Ms. Ana.

Behind the scene.

Compared to my previous flat, ashy and pale makeup look, my make over made me look fresh, flawless and poreless with the use of the new Fit Me line products. 

Just to share, I am a MAC NC15 to NC20 user and I have a warm undertone with combination skin type. As assessed by the Ms. Ana, the make-up artist, I should use Fit Me Liquid Foundation in 125, Fit Me Foundation Stick and Fit Me Powder in 130 and the Fit Me Concealer in shade 20. (Check out my before and after photos below.)

During the launch, I took the opportunity to swatch all the shades available and offered by Maybelline so I could share it to you my readers. Let us start with the Fit Me Concealer. 

Say goodbye to dark circles, pimples, and dark spots in an instant with Fit Me Concealer that gives you that natural coverage for zero flaws and blemishes. It is available in four shades.

Next, the Fit Me Pressed Powder is a mattifying powder that fits the skin tone and texture, perfect for touch-ups and offers a poreless looking finish with shine control. Amazingly, the pressed powders are available in 8 shades!

The Fit Me Foundation Stick, the very first foundation stick by Maybelline New York, is an oil absorbing stick that is creamy and can blend into a natural matte looking finish skin. It has an exclusive anti-shine powder core that instantly dissolves excess oil. There are 8 shades you can choose from the Fit Me Foundation Stick. 

Last, my favorite Fit Me Liquid Foundation! This liquid foundation can fit any skin tone and texture, leaving a natural and seamless finish. It is the best seller from the Fit Me Line abroad and definitely a must-have. The shades brought in the Philippines are not complete but it offers 10 shades that is already a wide range of colors that you could choose from. 

With all the four types of products from the Maybelline Fit Me collection, you do not need to settle for anything less than perfect. You can now shout into the world, "Don't judge me. Don't hide me. Don't change me. FIT ME!!!". The products are now available in Lazada and will be available in counters this July 2017!

During the event, I am so honored to have a photo taken by Ms. Sara Black herself. She is a member of the 10 inspiring Filipinas that I am excited to share. 

On this day, Maybelline New York also introduced the new beauty trend, the "make it happen" attitude and the "maker" mindset. As of today, more and more young Filipinas are empowered than ever. They now know how to express themselves specially on what they want and what their opinion is. It also entails their choice in beauty and fashion. Sometimes the only problem is that they lack the confidence. 

Maybelline knew on how to help them move forward and boost their confidence by giving a dose of inspiration. Apart from believing in the transformative power of beauty and using the energy of Maybelline to Make Dreams Happen, Maybelline knows that being a venue to share the stories of young successful women is what every Filipina needs to carve out a name for themselves and make IT happen. So on this day, Maybelline takes it a notch higher as they bring forth its "Make It Happen" movement as it partner with 10 young Filipina "Makers" by giving them a venue to share their inspirational stories. 

The Marketing Director of Maybelline Philippines, Ms. Cary Co, shared that "Maybelline has always believed in the power of beauty to make things happen. We want our message on empowerment and possibilities to be a part of every young Filipina's narrative.".

She also added, "Our partnership with these 10 girls signals our commitments to bring forth what we truly mean by "Make IT happen". We hope that by giving these girls a venue to share their stories, we are able to inspire other girls to make their own stories of success happen.".
