Miss Zoe is back with some fffabulous beauty recommendations—didn't you like her recos on the Transformation Face Cream by Jan Marini and DERMAdoctor Physical Chemistry? This time, she tells us all about her crush on the CoverGirl Outlast Lipstain, and we can't wait to try it out!
"I sometimes wear lipstick at work or out to dinner, but ten minutes later it's worn off and I forget to reapply. I'd heard some good buzz about this new CoverGirl Outlast Lipstain and its variety of colours, and to be honest I'm a sucker for Drew Barrymore endorsed products, so the last time I was at Target with my sis I picked one up.
Boy is the term 'stain' accurate! Having minimal patience, I applied the stain in the parking lot using my sister's sunglasses as a mirror. Her feedback was 'you might want a little chapstick on first before you do that next time'. She was definitely right. The Outlast Lipstain penetrated immediately and I wasn't as precise as I should have been. Oops! Living up to the claims though, it lasted all through lunch and well into the afternoon. It was true to the colour on the tip of the pen, though not that of the tube. The good news being that most drugstores will let you return makeup these days even if it's opened, so if you can't decide, buy two shades and you should be able to get your money back on the one that doesn't work for you.
The next day I did put on lip balm first and then (using a real mirror) applied the stain again. This time it was perfect! All the women at work told me I looked 'polished' and 'fresh', and when I told them this $6 lipstain was the only difference, they were sold. I've worn it almost every day since, and it's bright enough to be fun and trendy, but is still work appropriate."
