Comments about CoverGirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation:

Ive heard so many people talk so highly about this foundation so I decided to give it a shot and order it. I really feel covergirl could've come up with some better shades though. I have ordered two different shades so far.. I'm definitely disappointed with the shades. I first ordered the third color in, creamy natural. (Normally I'm the second to third color of any foundation) but it was SO dark and so yellow toned. I had to mix in a lighter shade just to try and make it work. Plus having to blend all the way down my neck so it wouldn't look ridiculous. After about a week or so I said forget it and ordered classic ivory- second shade in- I will say it's a little lighter but still really yellow toned for my skin. I also purchased a white mixer as well, so I will try adding that in to see if it helps any. I would say this is a high medium coverage. I do have redness around my nose and cheeks and one layer really seemed to cover it up. I applied this with a damp L'Oréal sponge and worked great.

      Comments about CoverGirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation:

      This foundation has a beautiful finish if you don't have dry patches, or blemishes. I have very dry skin with some small hormonal acne around my chin area. I wanted to try this foundation out because of all the great reviews I saw on you tube. Anyway, I am in my 50's, and wanted something with a natural finish with good coverage. This goes on very light, and feels good on the skin. The problem I have is it seems to cling to any and every dry patch and blemish. Also does not cover any redness. You will need to exfoliate really well and cover up any redness or blemishes. On the plus side it didn't settle into any fine lines or wrinkles. It looked absolutely beautiful on the areas that were not dry or red. I bought mine somewhere else at the time Ulta was out of stock. I got the color 725 buff beige, which was the perfect color match for my skin. ( medium neutral). I will try it again once my face clears up. Don't know how well it would be for oily skin. I would recommend trying this if you like a natural look.

      Comments about CoverGirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation:

      This is honestly a great foundation that I believe you can make full coverage. I spot conceal underneath and can get it up to full coverage. It blends out VERY well with a beauty blender and look so flawless on the skin. I have pretty normal skin with acne scars (no active acne) and it truly makes my skin look amazing and plump! The one issue that I have with this foundation is honestly a deal breaker though. This foundation literally slides off of my face if I sweat, cry, or get any kind of liquid on my face. One morning as I was finishing my makeup, I spilled water on myself as I was drinking (lol), and I had a big streak down my chin. Also I have cried in this makeup and when I looked in the mirror I had streaks down my face. And yes I set this with a translucent powder. I also don't have this issue with some of my holy grail foundations like Tarte Rainforest of the Sea and the Wet and Wild Photofocus foundation. I would never wear this foundation on an important day where I was going to be taking pictures or have an event going on, because I don't want to risk it coming off if I cry or something. It's truly sad because I thought I found a cheap alternative to my Tarte foundation. I will continue to wear on relax days where I don't have much going on, but I am sad about it. Overall, GREAT foundation, but isn't even the slight bit waterproof.

      I love the coverage and the way it blends it last all day the only problem I have is the strong scent and color range. Im not usually ivory and I had to get ivory.

      Comments about CoverGirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation:

      I think I have found my number one foundation and its definitely this one. I'm always on the hunt for a good every day foundation and this one is perfect. It stays on all day, doesn't emphasize lines, or dry patches, and when it starts to look oily, my face still looks put together. It gives great coverage without looking cakey and it also looks quite natural.

        I was unsure about this foundation at first, but after a few uses, im in love!!! I have oily skin and after I set this, it stays matte all day. I have also noticed a difference in the appearance of my skin. It is smoother, less red, and seems plump. I will definitely purchase this again.

          This foundation is great. The smell is amazing. It looks natural on my face, doesn't settle in lines and amazingly doesn't cake up on my nose (most foundations do). I wouldn't call this full coverage, but I am betting you could build it up. I don't care for full coverage, so I love how it looks. I am fair skinned, red hair, blue eyes. I tan somewhat good considering my fairness, I bought the 3rd color, 720 (creamy natural), during the winter I will need to drop to classic ivory. I apply with a damp L'Oréal foundation sponge, then lightly set areas where I have fine lines. I finish with NYX matte spray.

          woooooow

          Comments about CoverGirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation:

          I'm shocked by this foundation!! my favorite foundations are Nars sheer glow, Georgio Armani luminous silk & Dior Forever.. and this healthy elixir is looking gooood!! I'm usually not a drug store fan, but everyone was showing this so much love that I went & picked one up. everyone said it oxidized so I went a shade lighter than I normally would go. i wouldn't say it oxidized, I think it's just much darker than your normal shade. so, since I went a shade lighter mine worked out great. the coverage is there and omg is the finish so beautiful! It's skin like, healthy look. I definitely think ill be wearing this most of the summer. highly recommend trying it out. I'm a light-med with pink undertones & I night creamy natural (I think is the name) & its a perfect match!
