CoverGirl Outlast Lipstain Review

My purchase from drugstore.com arrived and I was very happy to see that my CoverGirl lipstains were in the box safe and sound, along with my Ojon haircare set ( I have yet to try Ojon, but I hear good things).

If you saw the post about my CoverGirl Outlast Lipstains, then you will know what I am talking about. See here: CG Lipstain Post

Here are the real pictures that I took after applying the stains:
CoverGirl Outlast Lipstain
The above photo is of the lipstain called Cinnamon Smile 445. It was a lot darker than I expected. These lipstains are quite pigmented and are not at all sheer. There is a slightly sweet taste to the stain, not one that I would particularly say was yummy, but it wasn’t terrible, either. I didn’t put a gloss over the top because I wanted to see how long the stain would last without it. I kept licking my lips over and over because my lips felt dry, so I ended up eating the stain off. I def. recommend using this with a chapstick or gloss so that you won’t end up chowing down on the stain like I did.

CoverGirl Outlast Lipstain Plum

The above photo is of the “Plum” lipstain.. which turned out really brick red at first. I didn’t really see anything “plum” about it. I expected it to have a little more of a purple tint to it.

Is it worth it? Hmmm.. I have mixed feelings for these. They are not as long-lasting as the discontinued Eyeko cosmetics versions of the lip pens. There is a strange taste to the CoverGirl version and for some reason, I kept licking my lips. I noticed that in the middle of the day, my lipstain had faded, even with a clear gloss over the top, but it faded to a really nice sheer color. I applied the gloss at 8 am and it is now 3 pm, and I already ate, and the stain is still there, although it is not as intense as it was this morning, I was still glad to see something left there. I think the performance of this product will vary from person to person, and I would NOT recommend for people with dry lips as the stain will stick to the dry parts of the lips and look blotchy.

  1. yeah..the lip stain went on really liquid-y, but all got absorbed into my lip? without a lip gloss over the top i think i would have eaten all the stain off, too..
