Review: Covergirl Vitalist Elixir Foundation and Melting Pout Liquid Lipstick

Every Wednesday evening I take some time to review a product, place or experience in hopes I'll inspire someone to try something new.

Review: Covergirl Vitalist Elixir Foundation and Melting Pout Liquid Lipstick

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.

- 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.

Review: Covergirl Total Tease Mascara and Katy Kat Eye Eyeliner

I received another VoxBox from Influenster! It's a great way to try out new products and talk about new trends and opportunities!

Review:

Total Tease Mascara

Katy Kat Eye Liner

Just so you all know...I received these product(s) complimentary to test and review for, free however the opinions are my own. 


Total Tease Mascara

I will admit I was planning on being very critical due to past "not so great" experiences with CoverGirl. (I think they are the cheapest makeup going) But I have to admit I enjoyed the total tease mascara! The options on the brush were fun to play with and they made my eyelashes look nice and big. This is probably the best experience I've ever had with CoverGirl. Don't get me wrong, if you're just starting out with makeup CoverGirl is great to get your feet wet, but you'll never look in the mirror and feel satisfied with the results.

Five Stars was given on the Influenster website... after it finally accepted my review.... Took 3 tries. I think it mainly had to do with my copying and pasting the information from HERE and there was suspicion over if I was posting original content... Annoying... But anyways I digress.

Katy Kat Eyeliner

This eyeliner was.. Eh, what you'd expect from CoverGirl... I prefer a dark black liner and this one being a pencil was not overly bold and a light black/ almost grey color. The sparkles are nice though. I wouldn't buy it myself, but someone who is perfecting the smokey eye look would enjoy this product I think, especially with the added sparkle to it.

To summarize- I can get behind the mascara. Eyeliner is a dud. Below is me wearing both the mascara and eyeliner.
