CoverGirl Outlast Lipstain REVIEW

I was pleased as punch when Lucky Magazine and CoverGirl sent me a free sample to review of their new Outlast Lipstain in Bit of Blossom 410.

Speaking of punch (how is that for a lead in?) remember when you were a kid and after you'd eat a popsicle or drink fruit punch how you would be left with the best stained lips? Who else used to purposefully rub their popsicle on their lips? For the past 15 years that has been my goal in life. To have popsicle lips that without the need for lipstick. Well Outlast Lipstain gives you JUST THAT LOOK.

How it works (from CoverGirl)
"The New lipstain formula delivers precision application and long lasting color without leaving your lips feeling sticky or heavy. Lips should feel bare, but have a beautiful color."

My lips without any color
dis ok

The applicator is something I have never seen before in a lipstick. It looks just like a marker you would of used as a kid (I am sensing a theme!)

It is easy to apply and goes on smoothly. It feels like water.

(How is that for ace product fronting!)
It is non sticky and has a very delicate raspberryish? smell that goes away very quickly. It is non drying, long lasting with minimal almost no transfer! I kissed my hand, my cup and my kitten and didn't leave a mark! It feels like you aren't wearing anything at all. (Who just heard Ned Flanders in their head?) I can definitely see myself buying a few colors. My favorite part is the look of wearing color without the need to constantly reapply or have that dried out feeling so many lipsticks leave you with.

So what do you think?

I have been using the lipstains for a few months. I think I have four of them now. I am a big fan of them, but right now I'm on an Aveda lipstick kick.

When do we start fighting crime and making style mayhem?

Cool, that sounds like something I'd actually use. When I very rarely try lipstick it always feels all icky/waxy, so how you describe this stain sounds perfect.

Megan said...

Oh heeeey, I have that same shade! You're right, it definitely doesn't dry out like other all-day colors.

ebinbaby said...

Looks fantastic! Like naturally beautifully coloured lips (she says trying not to sound too creepy... lol)
Did it dry out your lips like some of the other longlasting lip stuff? Wonder if it's available in Canada...

Erin said...

Oh, I love the marker idea! I ordered something similar from Mark (a subset of Avon, I think)and really liked the marker concept. I'll have to give this one a go!

hillary said...

Erin did you know I have been a Mark rep for 5 years and was an Avon one for 3.

ebinbaby it didn't dry mine out but everyone is a bit different so I can't say for positive. Do have CoverGirl in canada if you do I don't see why you couldn't get this.

La Historiadora de Moda I say immediately!

How did the "fading" go for you while wearing this? I noticed that when I wear it, when it finally starts wearing off, it wears unevenly. Kind of leaving a darker ring of color around my lip line- almost looks like I went crazy with lipliner and forgot to use a lipstick. Maybe the color I have is just a bit darker?

hillary said...

I definitely didn't have a ring didn't notice it being uneven. when it wore off it pretty much wore off all at the same time. Might have to do with my constant drinking and eating though.

Sal said...

Hillary, this review couldn't be more perfectly timed. I was JUST thinking that I need to explore lip stains. My glosses wear off in seconds!

i've been wanting to try it but was daunted by the price. i never wear lipstick because i can't stand either leaving marks all over everything or the super-drying matte lipsticks... i'm definitely going to check it out. i hope they have some darks!

hillary said...

Wicked thrifty. CVS and many other stores have a return policy on cosmetics so if you don't like it you can return it!

Kelly said...

That color is perfect on you!

I have a lip stain and I looove it. Hmmmm now that I think about it, I haven't worn it in a while, which is a shame because as I said, I love it! Except mine is another brand and has a rolly ball, which is annoying. I wish I had a marker.

Chelsea said...

girl I have SO been wanting to try this stuff out! I love the idea of a stain that doesn't get all dry or weird like lipstick and that lasts longer than gloss.

how long did the stain last do you think?? could you wear like chapstick or something on top of it? that's what I think I would do.

hillary said...

chelsea. I don't know. I know that when I took these pictures I had it on for about 3 hours but in that time I ate pizza and french fries. I will consciously think next time to kinda time it.

Emily Kennedy said...

I've tried this stuff, and I wasn't pleased with how my top lip looked lighter than my bottom lip. Maybe that's just me.

Work With What You've Got said...

I think I have this in every color but the coral. I could not be a bigger fan. I love it. I wear lipbalm over it.

Lisa said...

Sounds pretty awesome. I'm not usually into lip stuff (lipstick/gloss) because I eat and drink constantly so it's always coming off. I'll have to give this stuff a try.

Wicked Thrifty- Formerly The Thrifty Stylist said...

you know what, i totally forgot about the return policy. but i did go to a drugstore, and the makeup girl there actually DISSUADED me from purchasing this lipstain. she steered me toward revlon colorstay. and i am fairly pleased with that and its longevity, but it's VERY i-have-lipstick-on and maybe i was looking for something a little more subtle- how did she know??

Barking Dog Shoes said...

I have this product and have grown to like it. I apply cherry chapstick first and then a layer of this CG lip stain. Plan on trying other colors.

hillary said...

Thanks everyone. Not every products works well for everyone unfortunately. I definitely have products I have hated but I prefer to just share the ones I really liked.
