things i love: CoverGirl Outlast Lip Stain

the first in an occasional series about things i love. some are products, some are people, some are places.

first up:

CoverGirl Outlast Lip Stain

it's rare that i rave about a makeup product, even rarer so that i rave about one i bought on impulse.

i bought flirty nude, an ideal color for something that's barely there, exactly the look i'm always going for. it doesn't have the same consistency as benefit's benetint, which is a good thing, as i often manage to spill some of it. the smell is quite pleasing, and it doesn't have a chemical taste when you lick your lips.

i do have a debate about the name "outlast," however. while it does stay on a lot longer than a traditional lipstick, it doesn't last all day, like some of the promises claim.

overall, at about $7, it's well worth the cost, and in just a week's time, has become one of the things i love.

  1. Hmmm...maybe it's worth the try for an event that lasts for just a few hours. Lipstick never stays on me for long, and the other "long lasting" lip products I've tried in the past tend to dry out my lips and look pretty ugly after a while. This one sounds more promising...
