Presenting Covergirl’s Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation
Covergirl boasts “this foundation is healthy looking skin in a bottle which may be true. It is infused with Vitamins E, B3, B5 plus SPF 20 for correction, protection and perfection all in one. This full-coverage foundation makes skin glow with a healthy look, from the inside out.” That’s a lot in a foundation.
Lets get right into it. It’s available in 14 shades and the cost is between $10 – $15 depending on the drugstore you visit. The packaging is good and the pump is always a plus with a head that locks which makes it good for travelling.
With all that’s added in, this foundation has a lot to live up to. Let’s see if it does.
How does it apply and wear?
This foundation is thick and creamy, and applies with a very dewy look but dries out just a tad bit so its best for dry to normal skin. If you like the dewy look, this foundation is definitely for you. Now my oily skin girls, this may have you looking a bit greasy if you are wearing it during the day when out and about. You will have to blot your face periodically. If you like a matte look this is definitely not for you. Once you set the powder it looks nice and glowy.
Application is smooth and easy and seems to apply even better with a beauty blender.
Covergirl claims this foundation is full coverage but …. ummmm it is not. It gives medium coverage which is good because it gives a “healthy looking” skin like they did say, so you do not have a cake face. If you do want you can build it up for more coverage. The Healthy Elixir is comparable maybe to Revlon ColorStay based on the texture. The cost is reasonable so wont hurt to add to your collection or give a try. You just may love it based on your skin type.
And that is the best description of Covergirl’s Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation in its totality.
Covergirl you did good this time. Despite it having a slight sweet scent to it (constant sent on your face) all day:
- It blends well
- Wears well and stays in place
- Gives a healthy glowing look to the skin &
- It’s Moisturizing, Hydrating & protecting
For being all of that and still wearing well for extended periods of time and coming from a drugstore brand, I have to give it 2 thumbs up.
You Simply Extravagant Covergirl. I see you.
