As I have mentioned in previous posts, I have some issues with skin imperfections as a result of teen acne (left some scaring) and lack of sleep (under-eye darkness) for 13 years since I had my first child.
About a week ago I received COVERGIRL® Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation to review. For more than 5 years, every bottle of foundation that I’ve had cost at least $30 and was purchased at a specialty store and I’ll be honest; I assumed that foundation that cost at least $30 must be better than makeup that costs less than $10. Since using this foundation everyday for 5 days straight, I have to retract my assumption. I am very pleased with this foundation.
I love COVERGIRL’s Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation! I chose it over my other foundations for my vacation that I’m on this week which says a lot.
My Experience with COVERGIRL® Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation
How is the coverage?
The coverage of this foundation is medium to full. This foundation has proven to last through even my most active days. I feel that this foundation provided very good and even coverage. I always apply a primer before foundation but because this foundation says it is a “Primer, concealer, and foundation in one”, I tried it without using a primer. I have been very impressed with how smooth this foundation applies to my skin.
I am very happy with the coverage this foundation provides for the dark circles under my eyes. I usually use a concealer under my eyes or an eye brightening stick but I haven’t been since using this foundation.
How long does it last?
I usually apply foundation around 10am and leave it on until about 9pm. I have found that this foundation lasts all day (from 9am-10pm) and what I really appreciate is that I don’t feel like I have to use a setting power or touch-up during the day. I have been in a couple of situations when I broke a bit of a sweat and didn’t notice a decline or ‘melting’ of the foundation during or after those times.
Will it match your skin color?
Like I mentioned earlier, my skin has a yellow-ish tone to it which makes it difficult to color-match perfectly. While in the bottle, this foundation looked a little pink for my skin, but once I applied it, that’s when I really got excited because it matches my skin color perfectly! I recommend that you purchase a shade that looks one shade lighter than your skin color as based on what I’ve seen with my skin, it darkens a tad once it has oxidized.
