I was recently given the opportunity through BzzAgent to review Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation. I love make-up and always have, so I jumped at the opportunity to try something new. The lovely folks at BzzAgent sent me a coupon to redeem vs. sending me the product, so off to my local drugstore I went.
So, the first impressions: I was very impressed with how easily this foundation went on. Sometimes with other brands, I feel like I am having to drag it across my face, and this went on very smooth. Another thing that I was very impressed with is that it went on evenly! It didn't streak because it doesn't dry the second it's out of the bottle, so it gives you a little time to blend for a streak-free finish, and it didn't leave obvious blobs of color on my face.
Can we touch on how awkward selfies are? I realized about ten seconds after I agreed to do the review that a makeup review usually includes faces. So let's make some awkward ones, shall we?

|And what's over there??|
I applied the makeup on one side of my face and left the other bare so I could examine if there was any difference. The top photo is the makeup-less side... and the bottom has the makeup! Pretty big difference eh?
The "3-in-1" makes a big difference. The makeup is primer, foundation AND concealer... so all three steps in one. Which makes a big difference for me. I tend to be a bit lazy when it comes to my face... a dab of foundation and usually I don't want to work on it any farther. So all three steps in one? PLUS SPF 20? PLUS shine free? Sign me up.
My only "con" so-to-say is the price - the price of my bottle was $12.75 (and other BzzAgents saw it for 13.99), and I have to admit I'm a bit cheap when it comes to makeup. But, I realize that purchasing primer, foundation, and concealer separately would be MUCH more than $12-13 dollars, so I will most likely purchase this product again because it'll save me money in the long run. I must say that I'm impressed!
So what about you? Have you found any makeup recently that's really impressed you? Tell me about it!
