I love a foundation that gives you a flawless finish while still allowing skin to show through. Earlier this Summer, COVERGIRL® launched their Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation ($9.99) and I love it.
It’s a lightweight, full coverage formula infused w/vitamins and SPF 20 to create a healthy glow; skin looks luminous with a natural finish. It comes with a pump dispenser, so you can build up coverage without wasting product. My favorite way to apply it is first with a brush, and then smooth out any lines with a beauty sponge. I get the coverage I like but it doesn’t look like I’m wearing a mask, which is a plus.
I’ve read reviews that it oxidized on some people but it hasn’t happened for me at all. My shade (golden tan 757) was almost perfect + I get at least 6 hrs of wear before my natural oils start to break through (I have oily/combination skin), even on days when I’m working outside in the heat doing photoshoots. When I do all of my steps (use a mattifying primer and set with loose powder) I can get a full day’s wear with minor touch-ups. I purchased this the last week in June and just bought my second bottle, so suffice it to say I like it, lol. I’m interested to see how it will wear into the cooler months.
