The first bottle of foundation I ever purchased was by CoverGirl in the 6th grade. Throughout the years, I purchased a couple more bottles of CoverGirl “Clean Liquid Makeup”. Since then, I have found other brands of foundation that I really love and haven’t gone back to CoverGirl, till now. A couple weeks ago I ended up stumbling upon the display for the new CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous foundation…
I went over to the Neutrogena aisle and picked up a bottle of the Shine Control makeup in “Nude” since that is what is in my current foundation rotation. I used the bottle as a color guide to pick out a good shade in the CoverGirl foundation and ended up purchasing “Nude Beige”.
When I got home I stuffed my Neutrogena foundation in a drawer to save till summer since I don’t have to worry about a ton of shine in the winter. I was very excited to give this new product a try!
So far I’m loving it! The pump bottle is great, I love how clean and easy the dispense and application is because of it. The product itself has a slight paint smell but I barely notice it when applying. The shade appears a bit light on my skin right off the bat but dries to a perfect match. I apply foundation with my fingers since I prefer the way my skin warms the product and seems to blend it more evenly onto my face. I would say the coverage is medium and it ends up drying to a beautiful airbrushed finish. I still have been using concealer under my eyes but will have to wait for a zit or two to pop up to see how this foundation covers since it’s said to be a concealer too. This makeup has SPF 20 in it which is a major plus! As for staying power, it seriously lasts all day! I just looked at my face in the mirror and my skin still looks great! I applied this foundation 14 hours ago! No touch ups needed! I haven’t noticed any settling into fine lines or blotchiness at all either.
All in all I really enjoy this foundation and so far have nothing negative to say about it. Being a drugstore product it’s very affordable which makes me all the more willing to purchase it again.
Yay CoverGirl! You did a great job with this product!
