Bad Foundation-Wouldn't Recommend

By KD

Pros

  • Lightweight

Cons

  • Difficult To Apply
  • Poor Coverage
  • Too Greasy

Best Uses

  • Light To Medium Coverage

Comments about CoverGirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation:

I didn't like this foundation, the shade range is very weak. Even though it feels extremely lightweight it becomes very cakey once it is set with powder. I wouldn't recommend this foundation for someone who prefers full coverage or has oily skin.

      i don't have an acne problem, well, let me re-phrase that, i didn't until i used this product. it made me break out terribly, haven't been able to wear any foundation since using it, i have been cleaning and toning moisturizing neutrogena acne medicine and that's it. don't use this, i don't know what is in it but it is not good for your skin.

        I bought this in classic ivory which is the lightest color and it's still 2 shades too dark for me.
        Unless you tan, I would not recommend purchasing this without trying it first.
        It seemed like it worked well, but it was too dark to walk outside and properly try.

        Comments about CoverGirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation:

        The only reason why I dont rate this a 5 star is because it does give a very glowly look which I prefer satin matte to a matte finish. But after I set it with my usual powdered everything looked amazing!!! Blended out beautifully and it can build to a decent medium coverage, not full though. I love the feel of my face after I take off the product, it feels softer for some reason and healthy. i love it!!

          I think this foundation is so underrated. It has a beautiful, natural looking finish. The price is unbeatable. The coverage is FLAWLESS! I put this foundation on at 7AM and it stays on until I take it off around 9PM! It doesn't get oily or cake up. It does have a fragrance, but I don't mind it. It goes away after a few minutes. Definitely give this a try!

          Found My Drugstore Fav

          By Jamie

          from New York

          Comments about CoverGirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation:

          I personally love this foundation. It covers well and lasts quite awhile. Still looks fresh after 8 hours of wear. It doesn't cake up and gives you a glow look. Not matte or dry looking. I also don't see how people think this makes them look orange or even oxidizes on them. I don't have have that issue and I'm color light/natural in foundations. Anyway I recommend this foundation. Also use a beauty blender. Gives a better look than a brush.

          • Runny

          Best Uses

          • Light To Medium Coverage

          Comments about CoverGirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation:

          This foundation has adorable packaging and promises a lot of benefits, even with the low price. But when I tried to use this foundation all over, it left me cakey and spotty. Also, the foundation is a little runny, so if you're looking for something you don't have to work with, you might want to be cautious in selecting this. My beuty blender absorbed half of the pump. Also, the shade range! Imma need WAY more colors, hello! And honestly, this foundation wasn't really a "healthy elixir", and I still applied sunscreen on my face after using it. After I used this product, I did seem a little oilier than usual in my T-zone. Also, the oxidization is insane. There's nothing wrong with oxidization, but when I used this foundation exclusively under my eyes, whoa. It turned my udereyes a whole different skin tone. This product just brought out the texture in my skin, and every flake and bump seemed to stand out.

          It does have a nice, matte finish when used with a sturdy setting powder, though. I recommend Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder or E.l.f. HD Sheer Powder to set this foundation. E.l.f. powder does give you crazy flashback, though. I recommend using this product as a low coverage concealer.

              Medium Neutral shade for COVERGIRL Vitalist Healthy Foundation Elixir is Medium Beige. If you want a Medium shade for warm undertones, we recommend Buff Beige or Warm Beige. If you are concerned with oxidation, we recommend going one shade lighter than your natural skin tone. Our Light Neutral shade is Classic Ivory. Hope this helps!
