Horrible

By Jackie

from Hammond

Comments about CoverGirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation:

I was really excited about this because I heard it was similar to the bourgois healthy serum foundation. I got the lightest shade, which was a little darker than I wanted but it applied nicely and evenly so I stuck with it. I wore it all day at college 8AM-5PM and looked at it when I got in the car and was immediately humiliated that I had been looking like this all day and didn't realize it. It literally turned orange, a full two shades darker than when I applied it, and it felt and looked so WET it was literally sliding around on m skin. Parts of my face like my chin and where my hand tends to be when Im resting my head on my hand in class had no makeup on it anymore. This is the worst foundation I've ever worn. My super cheap elf and wet n wild products hold up better.

Liked the coverage and long-lasting wear of this foundation. Unfortunately the color wasn't right, and even though I tried to make it work, I had to return the foundation. Hoping to find the right color with it in the future.

      Comments about CoverGirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation:

      I originally purchased this in buff beige and absolutely loved it, it wore really well throughout the day and made my skin look great. It oxidized a little lighter throughout the day, but since it was a little dark for me, I was totally fine with it changing color for the lighter. I bought a second bottle in classic ivory (I have golden/neutral undertones and this was the next shade lighter), wanting to better match my current winter skin tone. The color when I put it on is definitely closer to my skin tone but this shade actually oxidizes DARKER so throughout the day it turns super golden and by the end of the day (when I'm tired and my makeup isn't looking as amazing), it looks less amazing than the buff beige does. So, overall, this is a great product, especially for the price point, but quality and shade oxidation varies widely across different shades. I would give buff beige 5 stars but I would give classic ivory closer to 4 stars (maybe even 3... the oxidation is INTENSE, I've tried blending with a lighter foundation, wearing a ton of primer... nothing really helps).

        Comments about CoverGirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation:

        So I bought the 710 because my store didn't store doesn't seem to carry the 705. I had heard that this oxidizes so I normally like to buy a shade lighter knowing that I can bronze up if its a hair too light. Since this is a bit too dark in the color I got I mix it with another foundation that is way too light for me. It last all day works great on my dry skin. I will repurchase in 705 from a retailer that carries that shade.

        Comments about CoverGirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation:

        The description of this foundation sounded great -- a moisture rich foundation with skin care elements at an affordable price. Unfortunately, it did not deliver the luminous results that were promised. Instead, it made my skin look dull and rather opaque. The finish is neither matte nor dewy. It did not make my skin feel hydrated. I was left with dull, blah skin. And worst of all, it did not leave a good canvas for other products (blush, highlighter, concealer) and it made it difficult for them to blend well on top.

        If you like that cake...

        By bethyhead

        from canton ga

        Comments about CoverGirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation:

        I hate this foundation. I have tried so hard to love it after all of the hype. I was so excited to use it. First, it oxidized terribly causing the lightest shade (705 ivory) to sit orange on my face. My makeup layers on it terribly. my pores are accentuated and it feels incredibly tight. Possibly even irritated, maybe from the strong scent that lingers hours after application. The spf causes a ghostly flashback. I will not be repurchasing this foundation. I gave it a third wear test today after I literally had to wipe it all off my face yesterday and start over. Where is this supposed luminosity and healthy skinlike glow? THIS was a yearly favorite?? Get out of here!

            Hello! I checked the Too Faced Born This Way shade chart and if your skin is Medium with Neutral undertones, then your skin should be a perfect fit for Nude Beige or Medium Beige in COVERGIRL Vitalist Healthy Elixir. Thank you for your interest in this gorgeous formula!

            Hello! Your best match will be COVERGIRL Vitalist Healthy Elixir in 705 Ivory. This shade is a match for Light skin tones 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. Embrace those fair tones and good luck!

            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!

            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!

            Hi Dania! COVERGIRL Vitalist Healthy Elixir is full coverage and oil-free so it is appropriate for acne-prone skin. However, if your skin is sensitive (as acne-prone skin can be!) we recommend testing on a small area of your face for any reaction before doing a full-blown application. We hope you give this gorgeous formula a try! ULTA's generous return policy can always be utilized in the event that this formula does not work for your skintype. Good luck!
