Every Wednesday evening I take some time to review a product, place or experience in hopes I'll inspire someone to try something new.
I’ve never been quiet about how I feel about Covergirl cosmetics. I mean don’t get me wrong for the price I suppose you can’t expect magic! So my mind set with Covergirl is “you get what you pay for” but lately they’ve actually been impressing me.
I received this foundation and lipstick for free and complimentary to sample and review but all the opinions are my own.
Covergirl Vitalist Elixir Foundation
Retails for $13.97
- 14 shades available
- SPF 20
- All day hydration
- Oil free
I was really impressed with the coverage of this foundation (previous Covergirl foundations I’ve used are so thin they feel like water) but this one is fairly thick and goes on smooth! An ultimate test for me as well is how it holds up throughout the day (I have a terrible habit of touching my face) but even with my terrible habits it was holding up well!
The only critique I have towards it is that the foundation has a bit of a sticky/ oily feel to it once it’s on.. May have been my fault as there’s moisturizer in the foundation and out of habit I still applied my daily moisturizer… I may have just doubled up.
*UPDATE* Using makeup without applying moisturizer first. Much much better.
Melting Pout Liquid Lipstick
Retails for $5.99
- 12 shades available
- "soft touch" applicator
I’ll start off by saying I LOVE the applicator brush, it’s so nifty!
I received a nude shade, which gives off a very natural look. Great for someone who doesn’t like bold colors (I like bold). Sadly however it doesn’t really hold up, I would have applied it around 8AM and by 9:30AM it had worn off, I hadn’t eaten or drank anything after applying it so it’s really not a lasting lipstick. This I would not purchase again.
