Review | Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation

Hi everyone, today's post is going to be a review on Covergirl's Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation in Golden Tan. This foundation has been raved by almost all of of the youtube gurus confirming the longevity of this product. This totally got my interest because I'm always on the hunt for long lasting foundation especially if it's drugstore. Found my color match by looking up gurus that have similar skintones to me and decided to go with Golden Tan. Upon discovering my color I searched my local drugstores for it. It was difficult because living in Hawaii we receive new products fairly late and I discovered that less than half of the drugstores carried the Outlast foundation and the drugstores that do were completely out of Golden Tan. I was consistently checking every week for three weeks and I gave up and decided to purchase it online. I purchased it through Drugstore ($8) and just received it a couple of days.

The foundation is encased in a glass tube with a plastic pump and cover. One pump of foundation was enough to cover my whole face. It applied well, creamy consistency. Golden Tan is a little light for me but do-able. It has a satin finish, very natural looking. Although it states a primer, foundation and concealer is in the product, the product didn't cover my dark under eye circles well.  I applied it at 9am and lasted for 5-6 hours before I could see my oil breaking through the foundation. By 5pm the oil on my face won the battle. No powdering was done to test the longevity of the foundation.

Although the foundation didn't last the 12 hours that it promised I'm still happy with my purchase. I know that not many foundations can battle it out with my skin type so having this foundation last more than 5 hours is good. It doesn't perform better than my Estee Lauder Double Wear and Double Wear Light but its redeeming quality is the price tag. I will be purchasing this foundation in the future and recommend it.
