UPDATE* See actual swatches of one of the new shades – Mocha 360 below

I have wanted to try this Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation for so long because it is raved about by many people including some women of color who were able to find a shade from the very limited selection of shades for darker skin.

But for me, the darkest shade which was coconut (355) was too light for me to use. I actually recently gave in when I found one remaining on a recent trip to Wal-Mart (this shade is always sold out) and decided to buy it to use in combination with one of my foundations that ended up being too dark.

Below is Coconut (355). Too light for me clearly.

Well, I shouldn’t have bothered getting it because new darker¬† shades including a shade darker than the coconut above were added to the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation.

Maybelline actually added 8 shades in total (Creamy Beige 122, True Beige 222, Natural Tan 320, Golden Caramel 332, Classic Tan 335, Spicy Brown 338, Cappuccino 340 and Mocha 360 which is the first image shown above) .

Some of the images for the other new darker shades of this Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation include;

Not only is there a darker shade than Coconut but there is some variety in the darker shades and not just one or two to choose from so I guess I will have to stop side eyeing Maybelline (still side-eyeing Maybelline based on my update below).

*UPDATE* The new foundations are definitely not as dark as the photos online which I realized after I purchased Mocha (360).¬† This shade is not much darker than Coconut. I think Mocha will work best for those who loved this foundation and although they used Coconut, it wasn’t exactly the right shade so Mocha may be a better shade for them.

Coconut is just too light for me and I can’t use it on its own. I bought it to use with foundations that I have that are a little too dark for my skin. While I can make Mocha work for me especially if I don’t use too much, it is just not dark enough for me and I don’t want to be one of those walking around with foundation that is too light for them. See my photos below of the comparison between coconut and mocha..
