Lipstain isn’t a new concept, nor are Outlast Lip Stains new to Covergirl, but we recently got our hands on a few shades and we’re converts.
The water-based colorants of Outlast Lip Stain give lips a beautiful,
lightweight flush of color that won’t come off, lasting for hours
without the heavy look or feel of an ordinary lipstick. Its easily applied like a marker (it has a marker tip) that makes it easy to define your lips- just draw on
color without any hassle.
Tip- Stains can be drying, so make sure to moisturize lips beforehand. Apply lip balm before doing the rest of your face, and let it sink in. Blot off prior to applying stain. We alos lipe to press the stain into the lip with a finger to give it a softer, more natural look. Just press and roll with index or ring finger.
Now, on to the review! We tried Lipstain in 402 Scarlet Pucker, 427 Nude Kiss, and 450 Saucy Plum. Here’s what we thought:
Nude Kiss is amazing, and the biggest surprise of the three. The tube is an odd, pumpkin/rust/brown color that we would’ve never even glanced at in the drugstore. THIS IS WHERE I STRESS TO TRY NEW THINGS…you never know. We rolled our eyes at it when we took it out of the package, but it’s become a daily staple. On lips it tints just a smidge, and reads a brown, “belle du jour” type nude. It really adds a bit of “something” to a basic, every day face, Like our own lips…but better.
Scarlet Pucker was a bit bright for us, a true candy apple red, but is great if you’re fearless and want fire engine lips. WARNING: This is a BOLD lip look.
Saucy Plum is THE BEST EVER. The name is deceiving, as is the color of the tube that contains it. It’s a dark, cranberry brown case, another color we wouldn’t have dared try. However, once applied it becomes the most perfect red lip in history. No joke, this shade is holy grail status. More blue based than warm, but completely gorgeous. Our search for the perfect red is OVER!
Outlast Lip Stain comes in 7 other shades, and we cannot wait to try them all!
