Review: Cover Girl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation, Medium Beige 842

Drugstore 
Price:  $10
Rating:  ☺☺


I jumped the bandwagon and decided to try out this foundation after hearing rave reviews about it all over Youtube.  

Don't do it.  

With Summer and warm weather to come, you're not going to want to wear something heavy and thick anyway.  If you need fuller coverage, I would suggest Revlon's ColorStay Makeup.  They provide a large range of colors and they have separate lines that cater to oily/combination and normal/dry skin.  

Pros
+Spf 20
+The bottle has a pump dispenser, which is much more sanitary 

Cons  
-The powdery, matte finish combined with the shade itself made my skin look very dull.
-Pink undertone:  You can't really tell if you look at the foundation in the bottle, but once you wear it on your skin, you'll notice a salmon-like/peachy tone.  I have neutral/yellow toned skin, so it made my face  a very strange color.  
-This is the thickest liquid foundation I've come across so far; it makes your skin look very cakey.
-Heavy, paint-like floral scent
-Oxidizes:  Turns darker as the day goes on
-This will severely emphasize any dry patches on your skin
-Dries quickly and doesn't blend well into skin, it sits on top and looks very unnatural
-^With that said, it severely clogged up my pores, so if you have acne prone skin, stay away from this product.

Notes/*Salveagable
.Salvageable as a concealer; use sparingly.  A little goes a long way.  
.One pump of product is far too much for your face; it's highly concentrated and thick.  I would go with half a pump.  
.You can mix a tiny amount with an oil-free moisturizer for a more lightweight look/feel.   I recommend Olay's Complete All Day UV Moisturizer SPF 15.
.You can mix this into a more dewy foundation to balance it out for a matter finish.  

1 pump of product
