This foundation is a god send. Previously, I used Revlon Color Stay for combo/oily skin religiously, but always hated that it felt so heavy and left me oily two hours after application. This foundation solves both of those problems!! My skin is super oily with redness and the occasional zit or two. Covergirl Outlast makes my skin look perfect and natural and is almost invisible to others. I love the super convenient pump and the fact that I can apply it with my fingers and be done in two mins. I find with a powder on top (palladio duo wet/dry foundation) it can last all day without shine. However, I can see why individuals with dry, or older skin would stay away. Thank you Covergirl!!!
I absolutely loved this foundation, I get pretty oily in the t-zone area, but with this, my skin was truly matte for hours. The finish looks great, medium coverage. The only reason I didn't give this awesome foundation 5 stars is because I truly believe my skin is breaking out because of it. My skin had been pretty good, a couple of bumps a month maybe, now my skin looks pretty bad. I don't wanna fully give up on it, I'm taking a break to see if this is really whats bothering my skin. If it is, obviously I'll have to get rid of it, but I am truly sad, that this didn't work out because, I loved how matte my skin stayed all day!
I also have been using revlon cs, but it is not as matte as this stuff is. I did just put it on, but it deffinantly amazed me! It's very matte and velvety, cs isn't velvety at all. I have to put powder on afterwards with cs. Although I can see how it may dry ur face up from time to time depending on the weather because it also has alcohol in it, so that would make since. This stuff seems to amaze me so far, and I hope it stays that way!
I've been using this now for a few weeks. I've always used Revlon CS which I love. My problems with this foundation is that it has a very matte finish and I prefer more of a satin finish like the Revlon CS. I also have dry skin so if I don't moisturize well before applying it can leave dry patches. Also, I have fine lines and pores and I've noticed this tends to highlight them more because of the matte finish. I do like that it stays on all day without fading or oxidizing. I've tried this as a concealer and it works great. I also like that the bottle comes with a pump and the price wasn't bad. I would probably say this foundation would be better for oily/normal skin.
I found this applied best when buffed on with my Real Techniques stippling brush. With fingers it was too patchy. Nice medium to full coverage and dries down matte but still looks natural. Sadly shade 805 in Ivory is both too dark and too pink and the next shade up is still too dark for me to get away with. My skintone is somewhere around N10...very neutral pale.
I have been a faithful user of Estee Lauder Double Wear or Revlon Colorstay for years... until both companies changed formulas. I still have half a bottle of the original Double Wear that I have been using and I haven't tried the new formula because it has gotten so many rotten reviews on the EL website and I HATE the new Colorstay! So... I started doing my research for a replacement. I read many reviews on the Cover Girl Outlast 3 in 1 and finally broke down and purchased. I am so glad that I did... It honestly reminds me of the original Double Wear. It goes on beautifully, covers all my imperfections, stays all day from 5:30 in the morning until I wash my face before bed at night. Because it lasts so well, so does everything I put on top of it.. I do not touch up throughout the day. My 43 year old skin loves it!! I have been using this for over a month now and have had no complications or issues. I want to thank Cover Girl for giving me the qualities that I love in a foundation but was sure I would not find again. And...from Cover Girl!!! Whodathunkit!!
I heard so many good things about this product and really thought I would like it, but it didn't deliver like I hoped.
I bought it when it first came out when there was a ton of hype about it and hated it. I gave it another chance after a few friends ranted and raved so I bought again, then realized why I hated it
This is not for dry skinned ladies out there. I always moisturize prior to applying foundation. This foundation applied okay at first, but the bad part was when it began to set. My skin would get super caked from this Some areas, like on my cheeks, the foundation clung onto; other areas, like my nose, were still red, even though I put foundation on it. I spent five minutes buffing away the cakeness off my face, until finally I just buffed off the entire foundation.
If you want a cake on your face, then by all means buy this. Again, this might only work for oily girls
I absolutely LOVE this foundation! It doesn't melt off my face after a long day, or make my skin oily. It keeps me not only matte all day, but it feels like you're not wearing foundation! This is my new holy grail foundation. I wear it every single day.
There are a lot of things that Cover Girl got right with this product, namely the package and the formulation. However, even though the shade range does appear to be pretty good between the blue-pump bottles and the Queen range, the lightest end of the spectrum again gets the least options. Unfortunately, even the lightest shade is about 1/2 to 1 whole shade too dark for me. It is heartbreaking to see it in natural light because it really does offer great coverage, and it lasts very well even on my combo skin. I have successfully lightened it with other products, which is why I can still give it four stars. I just wish Revlon and Cover Girl would get with the program and release shades that are true PPP.
I LOVE THIS FOUNDATION SO MUCH!!! It makes your skin look so smooth and flawless. It makes my look large pores small as well. It has pretty full coverage so its great for covering acne or acne scarring. It is drying so you will need to moisturize well before applying. This has a very matte finish, not dewy or glowy. I have tried almost every foundation on the market, high and low end and this is by far the best foundation I have tried!
