Behold, the highly covetted, and much hyped foundation: Covergirl 3-in-1 Outlast Stay Fabulous Foundation
Foundation comparisons (L to R): Covergirl Outlast Stay fabulous foundation (Golden Tan), MAC Matchmaster Foundation (5.0), Mac Prolongwear Foundation (NC 40)
So that is what the foundation looked like on initial application. If you watched my review on it, then you would know what I think about this foundation however I'll do a recap for those who havent:
PROs:+ cheap cheap cheap! At $20 RRP, this is a steal! Compared to the much dearer price of $39 for the Revlon, this literally craps all over revlon for the great quality at such a low price point!
+ Matte (currently a plus for me as my skin has been horrendous - however I feel like its almost a rarity to come across a nice oil-controlling matte foundation at the drugstore!)
+ Amazing blendibility. It's a much much thinner consistency than the revlon colorstay so I feel like for beginners, this will work to your advantage as it would make it easier to blend out and therefore reduce cake-yness!
+ Pump. nuff said.
+ Good colour selection (available overseas...)
+ Decent longevity. I believe the selling point of this is as a "longwearing" foundation formulation (hence outlast, stay fabulous) and it does do a decent job at staying in place and not disappearing. Mind you in the video I did say I noticed some oilyness happening, but when I actually touched my face i couldnt actually feel any oil! So whether that was just my highlighter, I dont know! But I think the longevity is good as a drugstore longwear formulation, however it certainly does not exceed other higher end brands.
CONs:- Poor colour selection (in Australia...)
- Can be overly drying for normal/dry skin girls!
- I've heard it oxidises (nothing too drastic that I've noticed though)
- Ridiculously hyped up - but it's not like I can blame that on the foundation right?
Literally I'm racking my brains out trying to find cons for this foundation and I cant find any! It's really quite a
Foundation after 8 hours (as if you didnt already have enough pics of my face right? LOL)
I swear to you, it looks sooo oily here but barely any oil transferred! It was crazy weird!
So thats it, no more pictures I swear!! haha. Hope you guys enjoyed that, and if you havent seen the video yet please do check it out. I show you how I put the foundation on and my first impressions!
