I don’t know how many of you follow my youtube videos (they are posted on this site), but recently I have received comments regarding my review of the Covergirl Outlast lip stain. It did not work for me and some others yet it did work for some. I came to the conclusion that I probably got a bad tube. One of my youtube viewers put that to the test and she too purchased another tube. Viola, her second tube worked like a charm! I was thinking that I didn't really want to get another tube because I would probably pick up another bad one, so I was encouraged to look for other long lasting lip colors. Youtuber xxDolllFacexx recommended a long lasting lip color from Maybelline, which I did purchase (review coming soon) but I put another company to the test first.
Yesterday I purchased the CoverGirl outlast lip color and it is LONG LASTING. I was able to eat, drink sleep all while keeping my lip color intact. All I needed to do was reapply the gloss to keep the look shiny. It cost $9.99 and I would certainly buy this again. The only problem is that the color I purchased(#301) looks atrocious on me as you can see from the pictures, so I will need to find another color pronto.
This is what my lips looks like after applying the Covergirl lip color (the flash of the camera makes my lips look shiny but at this point they actually feel dry).

Then I applied the gloss

Literally HOURS past and I am eating, drinking etc and here is the final result. My lips look a little dull and some of the color is gone but all I had to do was put on a little more gloss and my lips were still looking good.

I didn't have time to do a lip video but I hope to do it with the Maybelline lip product. I know some of you like to see how many coats I
Which product do you turn to when you want long lasting color?
Makeup artists- any tricks of the trade that can make a regular lip color last longer?
Some bloggers are now hosting brief radio shows and I think I want to do I know totally random.

You always want to do everything. That's sooo you.

No lie, this morning on the train I was thinking of a long lasting lip color I could get for the wedding, especially for the first kiss. Lip gloss wouldn't be good, Rob would freak out. And not a color that would rub off after the kiss. LOL, you and your timely posts. Thanks

if you alternate lipsticks with a layer of powder, layer of lipstick, powder will last longer :)

Wait a minute. Many of those long lasting lipsticks had LEAD in them. Lead is what makes them long lasting.

Be careful.

Gigi is right about the lead. I had to do my research in that department. CoverGirl Outlast lip stain lasted for awhile on me. I did a video on that too!
