Covergirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation Review


Hey everyone,

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?

Cover girl Colorlicious Lip Lava


  
Hey, I hope everyone is having a wonderful Sunday. It’s pretty chilly here but the sun is shining.

In a recent haul I posted, I purchased the Covergirl Colorlicious Lip Lava. When I saw this at Rite Aide I thought it was shiny and pretty. I love anything shiny..lol So, I had to buy it..right?

From the Covergirl website

Bolder than a balm, glassier than a gloss, more lustrous than a lipstick. The hybrid formula of new Colorlicious Lip Lava combines highly pigmented shades with iridescent pearls for saturated lip color with the high shine of lacquer. Now you can get a lip look overflowing with color, shine, shimmer and glimmer with just one product.

Pros-

  • It’s lasts a long time on the lips
  • The color is gorgeous 
  • Very smooth formula, glides on effortlessly 
  • Brush applicator makes for easy application 

Cons- 

  • A little sticky but I think that’s what makes it stay on your lips for a longer time.
  • It’s transferable.. Not the best for kissing, unless the other person wants shimmering lips.
  • If you don’t like shimmering, shiny lip this isn’t for you.

Final Thoughts-

I absolutely love this lipgloss. It’s true to its claims. For only $7.99, you really can’t go wrong with this lipgloss. I will definitely be looking for other colors in this line. 

Thanks for reading my post. If you have tried the lipgloss, tell me you thought on it.
