CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation Review!


 Covergirl has recently jumped on the multi benefit face product band wagon but instead of a BB cream they released a "3 in 1" foundation. The foundation is supposed to wipe out a couple steps in your morning routine. The claim is that it is a foundation, primer, concealer, and sunscreen all in one.
Okay let's talk about the packaging. I like that covergirl improved the packaging this time around. If you have every used any of the Covergirl foundation in the past it came in sort of a triangle shaped bottle with a twist off cap. I loathed that packaging. You had to try and dump out just the right amount on to the back of your hand. I can't tell you how many times I poured to much or knocked the bottle over! This new packaging gives you a pump so you get just the right amount that comes out. I usually have to do about 1.5 pumps on the back of my hand to do my whole face but that is because I also blend it way down on to my neck. The display has your average variety of shades. I picked the lightest one Classic Ivory since I am fair skinned!

As you can see the coverage is pretty heavy. I am going to go back and see if I can grab the next shade darker because this shade is a bit too light and makes me look a little washed out and ghosty. I can make it work with bronzer and blush but sometimes I just don't want to do all that. As far as coverage goes this is a full coverage foundation for me. It really makes you look flawless. It worked well to cover all my blemishes up and even helped with the dark circles under my eyes. I wouldn't use this for everyday in my case because I don't need a full coverage foundation all the time. Since I usually wear a tinted moisturizer or a BB cream this felt a little heavy on my face. It didn't make my face slick or anything like that it just felt like I had foundation all over my face. If you like a full coverage though this is great.
I do like that it has SPF in it. I am a huge sunscreen advocate. I wear sunscreen or products with sunscreen all year round so I like that they threw that in there.
As far as longevity I felt that this lasted a good long while. I have been wearing it everyday for over a week now and I think it does a really good job at staying put. I do recommend setting it with a powder. I work ten hour shifts and it stays put for those. It didn't leave my skin feeling greasy like some of the other Covergirl products do either. Like I said I think this shade is too light because it did make me appear a bit washed out.
 
I think for the $9 price tag this is a great product. I think foundation has come leaps and bounds from Covergirls usual face products. I did find that I was able to cut out a lot of steps with this and I think it is a great product. I even think it may be just as good as my Revlon Colorstay!

  1. i really like the covergirl & olay tone rehab. however, i need something more matte. i really like how this looks and that it's a 3 in one.

    1. The formula is more matte than the olay but it still has built in moisturizer so the skin is still a bit dewy. I set mine with a powder and that does the trick.

  2. I found your blog by googling "covergirl foundation primer". I really appreciate your review of the 3-in-1 product. Would you have a product suggestion for this situation: my skin is often so clean that when the camera flash goes off, my forehead looks shiny in the photo. No powder eliminates this. Any ideas?

  3. Hi! What color are you in revlon colorstay? Im buying online and thought that cover girl in "classic ivory" would be good but from your swatch Im thinking maybe not. Did did you send it back for a darker shade? What did you finally get?
