COVERGIRL recently launched their new Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation and they invited me to participate in the COVERGIRL 5 O’clock Challenge: They asked me to wear this foundation for a full eight hours during a typical day, take before and after pictures and report back on my experience with this product and share if Outlast 3-in-1 Foundation lived up to it's promises. Not one to shy away from a challenge, especially a BEAUTY challenge, I jumped at the chance to put this new multi-purpose foundation to the test! First, I am going to tell you a little bit more about the unique features of this foundation and then I'm going to tell you all about my experience with this product and the final outcome.
What is COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation?
Outlast Stay Fabulous is an affordably priced ($9.99) multi-use makeup product that creates a smooth flawless look that lasts all day because it incorporates a primer, foundation and concealer all in one bottle. The Primer utilizes an advanced technology that holds the foundation in place yet still remains flexible so that it feels lightweight. The Foundation contains tiny particles that modify the skin's surface by diffusing light and creating a soft matte finish. The Concealer contains small visual correctors that instantly conceal imperfections and absorb oil to create a matte finish. It can also be spot applied for added concealment of imperfections.
What makes COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation Unique?
- It is patented full coverage formula that is lightweight, flexible and blendable
- It's 3 products in 1: It sets your look like a primer, corrects imperfections like a concealer and gives your skin that gorgeous matte finish just like a foundation
- It comes in a wide range of flattering colors from light to deep shades as well as a balance of cool, neutral and warm undertones to meet the diverse shades of all women
- It has a broad spectrum SPF 20
The Outcome of My Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation Challenge
PICTURE OF ME IN THE MORNING RIGHT
AFTER APPLYING OUTLAST
I used shade 845 (Warm Beige) on my skin and it was a perfect match for my skin tone. As you can see from this picture, immediately after application my skin looked fresh, vibrant, smooth, even and flawless. All it took was one full pump of this foundation to cover my flaws, redness, freckles and dark circles without looking too 'made up'. I LOVED the lightweight matte texture of this product which was not at all oily and I was really impressed by the level of coverage it provided. I was even more amazed that it almost fully covered my dark circles with one application and I just added a tad more under my eyes and it looked great! This product was super easy to use because all three products are rolled into one, no professional techniques are necessary! In fact, I applied it with my fingertips and just used a sponge to finish it off. And I really liked that my sun protection was also included in the foundation, another step and time saver.
PICTURE OF ME IN THE EVENING AFTER
WEARING OUTLAST FOR 8 HOURS
As you can see by my AFTER photo, this foundation held up very nicely, it continued to cover flaws and kept my skin smooth, even and not at all shiny or oily – LOVE that! There was slight wear of this foundation over time but for the most part it really held up beautifully and I felt that my face and skin looked just as good at the end of the day as it did at the beginning of the day. I was really impressed with how the primer in this product held the foundation in place and it truly made it last throughout the day. In fact, I am happy to say that this foundation did 'outlast' many of its competitor's because it controlled oil, stayed in place and continued to cover well into the evening.
Disclosure: COVERGIRL compensated me to conduct this foundation challenge and write about my experience, but all opinions and luminous skin are my very own.
