In a recent interview with Teen Vogue, Gold-Medal Olympian and Dancing with the Stars Winner Shawn Johnson was quoted as saying:
“ Cover Girl Outlast Lipstain! It almost looks like a marker, and I love it because it’s not a lipgloss so it’s not sticky and it really stays on. I don’t have a favorite color because I always have, like, five different ones in my bag!”
I got a chance to try out these totally fun new lip products, and so can you (just keep reading)!
As Shawn said, each tube of CoverGirl’s Outlast Lipstain basically looks like a slightly slimmer magic marker. They’re really easy to use because basically all you need to do is color in your lips. It’s such a basic design I’m sort of surprised nobody thought of it before!
Sorry for the sideways picture- it’s a comparison of the lipstain and a Sharpie. It would be really neat if Covergirl found a way to make sort of “click sticks” like the newer Sharpies, although I guess gunk might get into them if you left them in your purse…
Anyway, these are really fun to use. Plus, you don’t need to do the whole lipliner before your lipstick thing because these stay put really well. However, if you want a glossier finish, the Lipstains DO work really well as a substitute for traditional lipliner, or as a longer lasting lipstick sub under lipgloss. Basically, they’re perfect on their own but play well with other products, too! When worn alone, they actually feel like your lips are going commando, and look really natural. Nobody but you will know you’re wearing product (unless you go for a screaming shade of red or something)!
The three I tried were Everbloom Kiss, Flirty Nude, and Sassy Mauve (one of my two personalized CoverGirl picks). The latter is my favorite, no surprise, but each of the colors was gorgeous. I think it would be adorable if CoverGirl made some sort of gift set where the glosses were sold in marker type boxes! I was a little bit tempted to grab some paper and just draw a picture with all the pretty shades of pink…
