COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Luminous Foundation $11.30 | COVERGIRL Outlast Lipstick $9.80
It feels like every day now there’s a invitation to a wedding popping up in the postbox. With your summer weekends filling up with hours of vows, speeches and toasts, it’s vital your face lasts as long as your banter does. Luckily, I’ve found my ‘glow-to’ brand for long-lasting coverage that doesn’t involve taking out a loan thanks to Influenster and their I Do Voxbox.
Outlast Stay Luminous Foundation in the shade 820 (Creamy Natural) is my first liquid foundation from COVERGIRL. At first I thought the shade might be a little too dark, but with a little buffing and making sure to blend down the neck, it’s a fairly accurate match with my sun-kissed face. California weather most certainly agrees with me! Less is more, as about half a pump covers the entire face. The foundation feels silky to the touch and after making sure to cover essential areas, I noticed how moisturising it was. I went a full day from 6am to 6pm and there was some slight deterioration around my t-zone, and my dry patches weren’t clung to like I expected them to be. I’ve taken to using my Dior primer as a combination and my skin glows radiantly, so those moisturising oils get some serious work. Heating it up on the back of your hand makes the application that much more effortless.
Partner the perfect base with Outlast Longer + Moisture Lipstick, that I received in the gorgeous Red Rouge. The first thing I should point out is the glorious smell that comes as soon as you take off the lid, a mix between berries and body scrub. There’s a slight drag on first applying, but it gets easier with each coat. For something that dries matte, there’s no dehydration. This is coming from a girl who’s lips are permanently parched! I sent the day munching, sipping and talking a LOT, and the colour had worn to a pretty stain. I love that this didn’t wear away like a lot of lipsticks do, so I’ll be investing in a nude shade that I can wear daily. My husband loved the shade, and it barely transferred. So that’s a huge plus as a married couple that don’t want to look like they’ve been sucking face for hours on end when all they wanted was a quick ‘peck’.
