Nutra-Lift make-up foundation

The Nutra-Lift company has a new make-up foundation:

The ingredients look good. The description says that it needs to be layered for heavier coverage though. I don’t know if they have trial samples either. They have a moneyback guarantee but by the time you pay for shipping back and forth, it’s an expensive proposition to try it out that way.

  1. I just received the vanilla-beige foundation and it looked like white geisha girl make-up on me. It looked a lot lighter than it did in their brochure. They don’t have any color samples. It’s not worth it for me to waste time and money to ship the stuff back and forth just to test out a color. I took a chance — I lost.

  2. Well, I changed my mind, because they said they would not charge me for shipping out a new one. I had to pay to ship back the old one though regardless. I sent it back too late to get a cash refund. They said I could exchange it for anything, but I decided to take a chance with another color, "Natural Nude", which turned out to be a pretty good match for me. I’ve only worn it once, but so far I like it. It has enough coverage for me — I don’t feel like I need to touch up the spots with concealor after applying it. It’s pretty matte. It stayed on well and I didn’t break out the next day. I’ll report back after using it for a couple of months as to whether I remain clear. It’s mostly natural and organic, but it does contain a chemical preservative, "tetrasodium edta". I think that’s a pretty safe one though. Here’s a blurb about it and the ingredients list copied from http://www.nutralift.com/default.asp?pageid=41717 :

    We have created a natural & organic healing liquid makeup, that is not only high in Anti-oxidants, but is also packed with ingredients that renew collagen, heal skin ailments and help diminish the appearance of pores and wrinkles.

    I still like the Evan’s Garden powder make-up mixed with the foundation cream for oily skin, but this is more convenient to use. I wanted to get this for traveling purposes (and, let’s face it, I’m a bit of a cosmetics freak — trying to keep it under control though).

  3. I started to break out after using the NutraLift makeup for 3-4 days. I got like 3 small to medium sized hard zits — not bad or red, but they looked like they could get worse. I’m going back to Evan’s make-up. It doesn’t cause me any problems whatsoever. The NutraLift make-up probably has some emulsifiers in it. Using Evan’s stuff requires more time (stirring, mixing) but I feel its well worth it.
