Outlast Passes Thanksgiving Test!

My HG Lipcolor?

My HG Lipcolor?

You know a longwear lipcolor is for real if it lasts through Thanksgiving Day dinner. Cover Girl’s Outlast held up superbly and I ate a lot, let me tell you!

I succumbed to the advertising of Cover Girl’s Outlast Lipcolor a couple of weeks back and was pretty impressed after my first couple of wearings. You know I’ve publicly stated that I am a fan of L’Oreal’s Infallible Lipstick and Lipcolor.

After the first application, I had moved Outlast ahead of the Infallible Lip Color and Lipstick. At first I thought I was overreacting because it was new, so I put on the Infallible again to make sure I wasn’t making a hasty decision. I wasn’t.

Outlast does NOT move. I put it on, let it set for a minute, then applied the topcoat. I put a Kleenex to my lips and not even a crumb of color came off. I can’t say the same for the L’Oreal, even though not much product transferred from my lips. But it was more than none!

I also ate with both products on. After I finished eating, I noticed that the L’Oreal lipcolor started to crumble a little on my lips, which was a little annoying. I tried to blot, in order to get some of those crumblies off my lips, but that didn’t work. The color still looked pretty good, but I press my lips together a lot and the crumbled pieces of color did not feel good.

After eating Thanksgiving dinner — with the Outlast on — there was no significant crumbling. I blotted my lips and a teeny tiny bit of product came off. I reapplied the topcoat and it looked exactly like when I had just applied the product hours earlier. I was impressed! And now it’s after midnight and my lips still look good! Cover Girl did the damn thing with Outlast. I have 2 colors, and will be purchasing more!

My only gripe with Outlast, and it’s really small, is that there are 2 separate tubes. The packaging of the Infallible products is the best in the business. I wish Cover Girl could find something different. But, it doesn’t really matter. I don’t have to take the original color with me to repply. After the initial application, all I need is the topcoat!

Stock up on L'Oreal Lip Products this week!

I thought I’d mention this because I saw it in the Sunday circular and will probably be picking up a couple of items myself.

I’ve previously mentioned that I’m a fan of L’Oreal’s Never Fail Lipstick. I also like the Never Fail Lip Color, Infallible Lip Gloss annnnddd the HiP Jelly Balms. Wow, it seems that L’Oreal owns me when it comes to lip products!

BOGO means I can get 2 for the price of one. And at CVS, if you don’t like a product, you can take it back and receive a refund no questions asked. That’s a good thing when dealing with lip color. You can’t always tell what you’re going to get just from looking at the packaging or test product.

And another thing! Why aren’t there tester products anymore? Do any drug stores still have those? CVS sure doesn’t and that’s my spot for cosmetics!

I think I’m gonna grab a couple of Infallible Lip Gloss tubes. I really like those. I want a “red” and a “berry” ish shade. I wish I could wear the lighter pink shades, but I am a woman of color and you know how that goes. I don’t want to look all crazy with pale pink lips that obvs don’t match my skin tone!
