Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation

I bought this foundation simple because I wanted to be fabulous! I mean who wouldn’t so I had to give it a shot. First off for reference I have normal to dry skin.

A few things I really love about this foundation: I love the packaging. The foundation comes in a glass bottle with a blue pump. I love when foundations come with a pump. Its so much easier to use and helps from wasting too much product and contaminating the rest of the product as well. I also love the feel of this foundation on my skin. It glides on easily and doesn’t feel overly heavy.

The color I have is 857 Golden Tan and it is definitely too dark. It doesn’t help that the product also seemed to oxidize on me slightly although not too much. As for the coverage I would definitely say it is a medium coverage. I was expecting a lot more coverage since the product claims to be a three in one of primer, concealer and foundation. I definitely have to use a concealer after applying foundation like I normally would to cover up any imperfections I have. As for the primer claim, I am not sure about that but I guess I just have to go with it. The product does last quite a long time, I would say about 7-8 hrs for me and dries to a matte finish. I am not the biggest fan of foundations with a matte finish especially since my skin tends to be on the drier side, but that is easily fixed. I tried mixing a little of my MAC Strob Liquid to the foundation and that was enough to remedy that little gripe.

Overall I did like the foundation but wish that it had a little bit more initial coverage to back up the concealer claim, but the product is build-able so if I have time I can get it to where I want it.  I will definitely keep this in my foundation rotation, but I will probably go purchase a shade or two down to mix with it to get my perfect color until I start getting darker during the summer.

Have any of you ever tried this foundation? What did you think of it?
