Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation Review

Hello Divas!

Okay…….FINALLY! I decided to do a blog post on one of the few drugstore items I recently purchased. If you know me, you know I am a FAN of higher end makeup products. If you have known me awhile, you know I have used MAC Studio Fix foundation in C3 for a VERY long time. Yes, big fan! If you have questions about it, let me know. Anyway, maybe a year ago I was like “Ok…I am tired of spending this much on foundation….I’m going to Fred Meyer to see what I can find…” Found something (cannot even remember what it was), tried it…hated it…. and went back to my FAVE product…MAC of course.

Moving on…. I ran out of my MAC foundation last week and decided to try drugstore. This was a HUGE step divas! The last time I bought drugstore makeup foundations was back in high school. (and that one time I decided to branch out over a year ago…which made me run back to Nordstrom – is that making me sound like snob?! HA!)

::: drum roll ::: Here is the item I am reviewing today:

Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation. $10.99 Fred Meyer (is sold at any major drugstore)

IMG_20131024_221446

Okay… so I am not 110% sure on this one. I am currently using this as my daily foundation (Color 810 Classic Ivory) and it’s been 5 days so far. What I can tell you about this product is….. I have VERY oily skin in my T-zone. Larger pores near my nose get oily most the time too. This foundation has kept me matte for most all the day. I have found that I need to blot throughout the day…but for the most part it’s done a good job. When I look at my skin at the very end of the day before washing my face…even before bed… I find my skin still looks pretty darn good!!

When you first apply, it doesn’t feel tacky like some of the other liquid foundations out there. It sets pretty well without a powder too. But, since I am oily I have to press powder and set! Since I have not purchased my beauty blender I am for now applying this foundation with my fingers (eeeeek! hate admitting that one!) It is very hard to go from using a powder type of foundation to a liquid foundation.

The foundation also dries fairly quickly but gives you time to blend, blend, blend! It also looks nice in the light. I have not tried to photograph it at night yet with flash. It also doesn’t transfer easy!

This foundation claims to have lasting power of a primer, coverage of a concealer and blendability of foundation in one… and I happen to agree. It covers well and has a nice velvety smooth feel as if I had applied primer. (not as silicon”ey” though). Don’t get me wrong, not bashing silicon”ey”.. I LOVE silicon”ey” primers like MAC Prep and Prime…. Okkkk enough about MAC, MAC, MAC! But you know me, ha! It does conceal my under eyes pretty well. I have a purple color in my inner eye corners where it meets my nose and it happens to cover pretty well there. Not totally…but this foundation is BUILDABLE! 🙂 Wahoo! The first layer covers well… I can definitely work with 1 layer (1.5 pumps for me) but I like to apply a small extra layer to my “mid face” just because I have more redness there.

It has SPF 20 too which is **always**good! So, don’t get me wrong. I will do a followup of my thoughts on this product. I am still playing around with other products with it and I will let you know. I think my skin is adjusting to it, that’s why I am not 110% yet.. so I will keep you posted. Don’t you worry your pretty little head off. (PS- I am also setting this foundation with the next product I am reviewing….)

The only real con I have about it is that it smudges off around the bottom of my nostrils.. but that is a given, being that I am oily there. Darn oily skin!!! Ugh!!!

Here is the main reason I love this foundation so far: It does NOT oxidize on my skin and turn orange. All my life I have struggled with foundation oxidizing and turning orange on my skin…this product doesn’t oxidize on me! I LOVE LOVE LOVE that! Here’s a *Did you know fact*: In high school I wore Maybelline Shine Free foundation and it oxidized on my skin. In high school I was told if someone put an orange up to my face….we would match! Kids are so mean, huh!?!? LOL! But unfortunately, it was true! Ha!

Hoping this helps you if you are looking to buy a good foundation from the drugstore. This would be at the top of my list!
