    Need to have a lighter shade for pink undertones. Like it but won't be buying again until you perhaps present a lighter shade. Thank you.

    Too dark

    By Alexis

    from Florida

    Comments about CoverGirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation:

    I love the finish this gives me. I have normal to dry skin and i don't get oily in my t-zone and i don't look patchy or dry on the dry areas of my face. However, the lightest shade is much too dark, it's called "ivory" but it is not a true ivory. If there was a lighter shade this would be my perfect foundation.

    Comments about CoverGirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation:

    this is hands down my favorite drug store foundation but the lightest shade is way too dark. even during the summer when I have a little more color. luckily this mixes well with manic panic dream tone.

    Comments about CoverGirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation:

    I have dry sensitive skin so I thought this would be perfect since it says it hydrates but it broke me out. I use other foundations and every time I wear this one I end up with bumps all around my chin and cheeks. Maybe it'll work for for non sensitive skin.

    TOO DARK!!

    By jenni88

    from Orlando

    Comments about CoverGirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation:

    Sadly the lightest shade is too dark for me. I love it and seems very good for dry and mature skin. please make a lighter shade. Adding a lightning product really changes the finish.

        Comments about CoverGirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation:

        Such a good foundation! I have dry skin and also skin that tends to flake, so it is very fair I find a foundation that is hydrating, smooths that out, and gives a good medium coverage! The only problem I had was finding a correct shade, since many are yellow toned (and I am very neutral). Other than that, new fav foundation!

        Favorite foundation!

        By Trisha

        from Texas

        Comments about CoverGirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation:

        This foundation is the one I go for the most when I do my makeup. The finish is so lovely and radiant even for my very oily skin and it holds up so nicely for me without breaking me out! I wore this while walking around in Disney World for a whole day and it lasted without budging an inch like a trooper! Seriously give this a try!

            Hi! Your best match will be COVERGIRL Vitalist Healthy Elixir in 705 Ivory. This shade is a match for Light skin with Neutral undertones. If you're truly fair, you may need to lighten it a bit or you might find a better match in COVERGIRL Outlast Ivory or COVERGIRL Clean Ivory. Thank you for your interest in Vitalist!

            Hi Jessica! I'm not sure which Clinique formula your are switching from, but based on the shade charts I believe that COVERGIRL Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation in Classic Ivory should be a perfect match for your skintone. (It's a light shade with warm undertones.) I hope you love our Vitalist formula!

            Hello! COVERGIRL Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation in Buff Beige is our lightest Medium shade with warm undertones and I think it would be a perfect place to start. If you need to go lighter, then Classic Ivory would also be a good option for your undertones, but slightly more fair. Good luck! Thank you for your interest in Vitalist!

          Does it have flashback?

          • Brand Expert

            A:

            Hi Sun! Although this product was not specifically tested for flashback, it's very unlikely to occur. However, if you apply highlighter or contouring products, there may be a higher potential for flashback as these products tend to have more of the types of pigments that reflect the light and give a ghost-like or streaky appearance during flash photography. I hope this helps!
