Markers For Your Face: Cover Girl Outlast Lipstain


I go through phases of using lip stains. I'll have months where I want to use a lip stain every day, and then I'll decide I want a lighter lip and forget that I even own lip stains. I'm starting to get back into a lip stain cycle, and it's largely been sparked by Cover Girl's new Outlast Lipstain.

This super affordable lip stain (seriously, it's about 1/4 the price of my previous favorite Benetint) comes in a huge array of colors. It looks just like a marker and is just as easy to use. The stain is very forgiving and easy to just draw on to your mouth. I do "smack" my lips together afterwards to help evenly distribute the color and I'm set. The color lasts for 6-8 hours and is amazing under a translucent lip gloss.

I started out with a Flirty Nude sample that was mailed to me. I've bought Teasing Blush and Everbloom Kiss since then. I use 1 layer of the colors when I use them (better with my pale complexion), but you could very easily darken the intensity with just another layer.

I'm hoping that Cover Girl realizes what a winner this product is and keeps it around for a long, long time. It's my new holy grail lip stain!

I love these lip stains!! The only thing is that they only last a couple of months until they dry up :(

I actually really didn't like these lip stains because it felt like they dried up and didn't work almost immediately. Another lower-price version that I really liked is the Sephora brand lip stain. If you apply it with a light hand, it has a very natural color - like you just ate a popcicle!

anon- Since they're stains they're actually meant to dry up pretty much immediately. For more color just layer!
