Friday Favorite

I LOVE wearing color on my lips.
I HATE when lipstick is constantly getting on my teeth, drinks, and who knows what else!!
I feel like I am always on the hunt for the best solution to my lipstick troubles.

Needless to say, I was excited when I saw a commercial for Cover Girls new Outlast Lipstain. I jumped at the chance to grab some the next time I was at my local grocery store.

It looks and feels like you are coloring your lips with a marker. The intensity varies depending on how many coats you layer. There are 10 different shades. I have tried two of them- Teasing Blush and Plum Pout. I really love both of them. It is long-lasting, easy to apply and only $8!!

My few cons are:
The color doesn't last ALL day, but it lasts for quite a while. It does fade faster when you are drinking or eating.

It is a very MATTE finish- which some people like. But I found it helpful to layer a light gloss over my lips, adding some moisture and shine.

Also, be careful when choosing your shade. I found that the actual shade of lipstain wasn't very true to the tube color. They can be a bit intense.

Overall Review- I am sure there are some better lipstains out there- but for being a drug store product that is only $8.00, I feel like it's worth the 8 Bucks. I love having color on my lips without having to worry about it getting on my teeth.

Has anyone else tried this or any other lipstains?
I would love your opinion...


  1. I have never tried a lipstain, but I love it on you. Maybe I will get some next time Im at the store, a new lipstick is always fun to get!

  2. After I tried it in New York I went and bought it. I love it. Great recommendation!

  3. I like the color, but it is too drying for my lips. I like a tinted lip balm and out of like the 100 that I have tried I LOVE one by Fresh called sugar rose. It has spf 15 and is so moisturizing with a great long last color. You can get it at Sephora.

  4. ooooh.... thanks for the pointer Jackie! I can't wait to try this one.
