Got this the other day, and was pretty impressed. Covers really well, and stays most of the day. I like this brand, although cheaper, it doesn't seem that way.
Ok so I just recently bought this product and have used it enough to be able to tell that it's absolutely amazing!
I cannot say enough good things about it!
It lasts for the absolute longest time still looking fresh on the face and Im obsessed with the way it looks on the skin!
Although it says it has primer built in today I used it with smashbox photo finish primer and the combination is flawless
It dries practically matte but in a very natural looking way if you are someone with oily skin this is very very helpful.
I did not need to powder or blot the whole day today or any of the other days I have worn it !
the packaging is great too ! Two thumbs up for the pump!!
If you are on the fence about trying it go for it I'm sure you'll love it !
I barely got this foundation yesterday, and I really like it! It goes on nice and blends well. I forgot and applied primer before putting on the foundation, but I will attempt it without any tomorrow. It does not make my face look cakey, maybe because I didn't set it with a powder. Hopefully it does not break me out as I've read.
I think this foundation would be good for someone with oily skin. I have combination skin and like most people, my t-zone area will get oily throughout the day. This foundation was really good at keeping that under control. However, for the rest of my face, mostly around my lower cheeks next to my mouth, I started to get big patches of dry skin after using this foundation everyday for about a month.
A good point is this foundation did NOT crease what so ever in my fine lines under my eyes. Which was amazing...I haven't found another foundation that doesn't do that.
I think I'm going to try using this foundation again during the summer months and see how it goes.
For reference, I'm NC 25-30, and tried using the honey beige because it looked the most yellow. It was dark, but i think it would work well once I get a tan during the summer.
It's orange, makes me break out (Just like the colorstay) I'm oily and it doesn't control it at all.. The price is not that bad and the packaging is awesome but that's all. I'm very disapointed. (Sorry if my english is bad, I speak french)
I'm a big Colorstay fan. I haven't found any drugstore foundation better. Until I found this one. It blends perfectly, gives a good coverage, stay in out and does not break me out! Love it!
I really like this foundation! I used it yesterday because i went to a party! I applied this foundation in tha morning it was 10:00am it stayed all day till 12:00am (next Day) so far iam loveing it '
Wonderful foundation, it is VERY matte, so it is great for combination to oily skin. Try and stick with just one thin layer (which is all you need as it has great coverage) because it is very matte, and matte foundations can look cakey after you put on more then one layer.
When I used this foundation it lasted all day. Bronzers and blush stick to this foundation very well. Over all great product.
One thing I should mention is purchase a color that is 2 shades lighter as it does oxidize and becomes 2 shades darker.
Well well well. Covergirl's new Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 foundations plus sunscreen SPF 20. Well. I sure had high expectations. I researched this through and through. I picked up 845 Warm Beige and I'm nc30-35. I read everywhere this oxides 1-2 shades darker and I thought this was a good match. (if it were to oxidize 2 shades darker) First time I tried it, didnt oxidate and it sat on my skin (applied with fingers) and I looked sickly. Then I tried it with a flat foundation brush and I liked it a lot better. And this time it actually oxidized. I liked it alot at school with the artificial lighting but then BAM. I walk outside and I look at myself in the car mirror or my phone and I looked pink and cakey. Ugh! I love the packaging a lot, with the pump! Amazing! And it twists to "lock" and "unlock". Super duper handy. The finish is matte only if you set it with pressed powder. Without it I look like an oily nasty mess. I rate it a 2/5 because it does last all day without touch ups even on really hot South Florida days but the pink undertones and cakeyness prevents me from buying this again
I will finish the bottle though because at night you won't be able to tell the pink undertones. Also this has an spf of 20 so it doesnt photograph well.
Bottle line: Too cakey, PINK UNDERTONES -.-, conceals well but not as well as an actual concealer.
I prefer Colorstay for Oily/Combo. My Def. HG!
Update: The foundation got even darker. The color now for my Warm Beige is like nc37-40. I'm upset. This is darker than what I am in the summer. ALSO i've been getting breakouts and whiteheads and my face is a mess and I suspected this foundation. Thumbs DOWN.
This foundation covers quite nicely and feels as though I don't have any on. I think that its lasting power is really nice and its finish is really nice as well. I have oily skin and it did not make me crazy oily throughout the day. Unfortunately, this foundation caused me to break out! So sad! :( Really liked this foundation but I guess my skin was too sensitive. On to the next one...
