Covergirl Vitalist Elixir Foundation + Melting Pout Liquid Lipstick Review

*Products featured were sent free for review. All opinions are my own.




Influenster sent me 2 new products by Covergirl. I received their new Elixir foundation in 610/ Classic Ivory and their new Melting Pout liquid lipstick in 105/ Gel-Ful. 



I have avoided drugstore foundations for years, as I always found that they would oxidize and/or be orange in tone. This foundation has blown me away! It doesn't oxidize, the shade 610 (classic ivory) is perfect for my light-medium skin tone that is neutral leaning warm. I have aging, dehydrated and acne prone skin. The Covergirl Vitalist Elixir foundation makes my skin look healthy, hydrated, and gives me a bit of a healthy glow. I get medium coverage using the Real Techniques Beauty Sponge, and heavier coverage with a brush. The coverage is buildable, but I really like the medium coverage that I get with the makeup sponge. 


This product also gets major points for looking natural and NOT clinging to dry patches or accentuating pores. I get a "my skin but better" look. In my opinion, this foundation is as good as high-end ones. And, this one doesn't cause me to breakout! Another bonus is that this foundation has SPF 20! I truly adore this foundation!

Covergirl's Melting Pout Liquid Lipstick has a fabulous formula. It's not your typical liquid lipstick in that it doesn't dry down, however, it is long-lasting. I like to apply a very thin layer, and application is easy with the sponge tip applicator. The colour 105 (Gel-Ful) is a nice coral/nude shade that would suit most skin tones. I find the formula moisturizing which is rare for a long-lasting lip product. It doesn't accentuate the dehydration or lines which is amazing for my aging lips. The formula gives my aging lips a more youthful look, unlike a lot of lip products on the market these days. However, it does stain the lips slightly and I find that the staining effect can accentuate dry patches if you have any. So, I recommend exfoliating the lips for best results. Another tip is to blot your lips for a more matte look.

Images below show me wearing both of these products.


Verdict: I truly love both of these products! The foundation is a perfect match and I'd love to pickup the Melting Pout Lipstick in some other shades! (ie. nudes if you know me!) 💗

Have you tried these new Covergirl products? What are your thoughts?

Ps. I'll be linking up for Monday Makeup Madness!

  5. Great review girl! These products look great on you. That lippie is a great colour as well :) I found that the only drugstore foundation that didnt turn on my skin was the Maybelline Matte one. If I still used conventional makeup, I would pick this one up!
