Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation!

Hey Everyone!

This post is all about the new Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation. This product claims to be a primer, concealer, and foundation all in one. Though it is moderately long lasting, and does offer a nice medium coverage, I definitely would not consider this to be in any way a primer or concealer. Though that would be a miracle product…

I would not consider this product to have any primer-like qualities because primers offer both long lasting wear AND a smooth base. Like I said above, this foundation lasts a good amount of time, but not long enough to merit the label of “primer” and it in no way offers a smooth base. If anything it settles into pores and lines bit.

Also, I would not consider this product to have concealer qualities because while it can be buildable, when applied to concentrated problem areas, as you would a “concealer”, it leaves an unnatural finish and does stay in place.

So basically, this 3-in-1 foundation, is just a foundation. You will still need a primer and concealer of your own if you want the flawless face it advertises. You can buy this product for about $8 dollars at drugstores.

Overall, I would give this product 2 out of 5 stars.

NYC Smooch Proof Lip Stain Review and Swatches

Hello! This post is about the NYC Smootch Proof 16H Lip Stains. These are my absolute favorite lip stains currently on the market! They literally last all day unless you lick your lips frequently, which if thats the case, they will only fade to a less intense saturation of color (I know this to be true because when I am riding horses I tend to lip my lips quite often for some reason). While I would not say this is a moisturizing product, they do not dry out even the most severely chapped lips. I have tried the Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain + Balms and the Covergirl Outlast Lipstains and they do not last nearly as long and dry out my lips terribly. They also tend to bleed out ; while the NYC Lip Stains do not. (PICTURES AND SWATCHES BELOW)

They have a standard lip stain applicator, which resembles a Crayola Marker, and a slight sweet lemon scent. The colors of the actual stain itself tend to always be a couple shades darker than the tube color. That is to be expected with stains because deeper colors are much easier to make stay than lighter shades. Although the color selection is decent to good, I wish they would expand the line considerably; just because I like them so much! Lastly, they last an average amount of time for a lip stain, which is anywhere from a few weeks to up to three months before drying out. Fortunately they are at a price point to where it is not a great expense to replace them after its lifespan has ended. You can get them at :
