Covergirl 3 in 1 Outlast Stay Fabulous Foundation Review

Covergirl 3 in 1 Outlast Stay Fabulous Foundation in #810, Classic Ivory

The color that fit my skintone best is #810, Classic Ivory
Mackenzie’s Notes:
I was browsing YouTube the other day and stumbled upon Judy’s lovely channel Itsjudytime, where she reviewed (and raved) about the new 3 in 1 Outlast Stay Fabulous Foundation from Covergirl. Needless to say, it peaked my interest.  I have been wearing Garnier’s BB cream daily and sometimes Laura Mercier’s Oil free Foundation, but I haven’t really given drugstore foundations a chance since my skin used to be very sensitive and acne prone.  But due to the rave reviews, affordable price ($12.99 for 1 fl oz.) and availability in my local Rite Aid store (and most other drugstores), I decided to see how it really is for myself.  The color I am showing you is number 810 in Classic Ivory, and the entire collection consists of 14 shades, a pretty wide range. While displays might not included all the shades, they are available on Covergirl’s website and darker shades are also available, under the Queen Collection All Day Flawless (same formula).
Claims:  All-in-one foundation with a long-lasting formula that fuses primer, concealer and foundation in one easy step! The 3-in-1 formula provides a flawless look that lasts all day long, shine free.
I’m a Covergirl fan so I’m glad they came out with a wonderful foundation (oops spoiler) to add to their line.

Covergirl 3 in 1 Outlast Stay Fabulous Foundation: So excited about the SPF 20

Pros: The formula of this foundation is awesome and is perfect for girls with normal/combo skin or oily skin. It doesn’t stick to my dry patches, so if you are excited about this foundation and you have dry skin, I would encourage you to do so.  In my opinion, all the claims hold true, since it has medium/heavy coverage, it blends wonderfully and is absorbed evenly for lovely coverage. For heavier coverage, I recommend to apply one layer first and then stipple more on the areas that need additional foundation. Despite the coverage it offers, this feels so extremely light on the skin! It literally just feels like my skin, not cakey, greasy, sticky, etc I kept touching my face and couldn’t believe how comfortable it was (better than my Laura Mercier Oil free foundation). The fact that it has SPF 20 is wonderful and the packaging is so hygienic and easy to use, due to the lockable pump. It really did keep my face shine free all day (10 hrs+) and does not settle into fine lines either. It dries to a semi matte finish (not flat) very quickly; you have time to blend it well, but it sets fast enough to continue the rest of your makeup.  My bronzer and blush blended great on top of this foundation. No scent, and it has not broken me out. Also, the price point of the Covergirl 3 in 1 Outlast Stay Fabulous Foundation can’t be beat for how awesome it is, and the variety of shades available is a plus!

Cons: Despite the wonderful formula, I am still unsure about the color - it applies well but it oxidizes after an hour or so, making it slightly too dark for my skin.

Grade: 5/5

The foundation is medium thickness, and that amount covered my entire face, medium coverage. Blended out on the right
My skin is semi matte and the rest of my makeup applied wonderfully! The bronzer didn’t apply patchy and blended out well

    This looks awesome on your skin! So natural and it has a really nice finish! I’ve been wanting a new foundation because I have a ton, but my real favorite is one by Chanel. It’s almost out and I do not have the money to repurchase it right now! Haha :) Maybe I’ll pick this one up!!

    I have been seeing this pop up a lot lately. I think it looks great on you! I’m curious about trying. However, the last couple foundations I have tried have broke me out! I recently tried the Revlon Nearly Naked and I’m not at all into that. Have you?

      Thank you, I think it’s definitely worth a try, especially for when you want a flawless look. I haven’t broken out with this yet, but my skin hasn’t been so sensitive lately so I can’t guarantee you won’t, as it is a pretty heavy coverage foundation. But I was looking for something like that, and that’s why I didn’t try the revlon naked. It’s a bummer that one didn’t work out, but you should try this and let me know how you like it, I’m curious! This covergirl one is better than my Laura mercier foundations though ill say that for sure!
