When I heard the much raved about
Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation had finally come to Australia, I pretty much peed in my pants from excitement.
From what I’ve heard/seen, it seemed like a foundation that I would really like so I immediately high-tailed to my nearest Priceline.
This foundation retails for AUD $19.95, which is a pretty reasonable price in my opinion but Covergirl is often on sale anyway. I grabbed mine on sale for $13.95 – score!
One thing I wasn’t impressed with was the limited shade range. There were only about 5-6 shades, the lightest being way too pink for me, so I picked up the lightest yellow-toned shade which is 825 Buff Beige. Besides the light pink-toned one, the other shades looked kind of dark so some people will struggle to find a good match.
825 is a bit too dark for me, but what else is new with my fair complexion.
It comes with a PUMP – YES! You go Glen Coco – I mean Covergirl (Comment if you get that reference!)
I really like how it’s one of those pumps that has a lock mechanism, so when you twist it to the left, it locks so no spillage occurs. Nifty!
The consistency is more on the thicker side but it’s not super thick, so it’s still easy to work with and blend.
I apply this foundation by either buffing it in with my handy-dandy Real Techniques buffing brush, OR by patting it in layers to conceal my problem areas.
THE COVERAGE TEST:
This is the factor which makes or breaks a foundation for me. It must have good coverage, at least medium so I can build it up to achieve flawless coverage.
My cheek is also plagued with many acne scars to give you a good indication of the coverage. 😉
