Lately I’ve been trying out a bunch of different foundations. I heard a lot of good stuff about the Vitalist Healthy Elixir from Covergirl. So, I was excited to try it out.
Description from Covergirl Website-
Hydrate your skin while keeping it looking flawless with COVERGIRL Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation. Finally a hydrating, vitamin-infused formula for beautiful, buildable coverage that glides on smoothly for a flawless look. This liquid foundation is infused with Vitamins E, B3, B5, SPF 20 plus a special antioxidant and vitamin complex. Give your skin a health and luminous glow. Part of our Vitalist Healthy Elixir family.
It sounds like an amazing foundation. It has a ton of good reviews. A lot of the beauty influencers rave about this foundation. But I should have known when I picked it up that the lightest shade they had at the store, 705 ivory looked like it might be to dark for my pale skin. Which is the lightest shade they carry in this line.
If this foundation actually stayed the same shade as when I applied it, it wouldn’t have been so bad. But after about 10 minutes or so, it oxidized so bad that I looked like an Oompa Loompa.
When first applied.. It was a little dark but I could work with it.
After it sat on my skin for awhile, it turned darker, which wouldn’t have been so bad if they had lighter shades.
The formula is great. Perfect for summer, it gives your skin a healthy glow. This would work out great for medium or dark skin tones.
I’ve tried mixing this with different foundations but it doesn’t work. Maybe when I get a tan, it will look better.
If they decided to come out with the foundation for lighter skin tones, I would definitely try it out again. But for now, it’s a pass for me.
Have you tried out this foundation? What are your thoughts?
