cover girl outlast lipstain

I am seriously in love with these. I have 2 (Plum Pout and Sassy Mauve) and plan to add a couple more soon. These are the new Outlast Lipstains from CoverGirl.

The water-based colorants of Outlast Lipstain give lips a beautiful, lightweight flush of color that won't come off, lasting for hours without the heavy look or feel of an ordinary lipstick. Its pen-like precision applicator makes it easy to define your lips-just draw on color without any hassle!

They look like a marker and go on much like one as well. You need to be quick and precise with the application. They dry quickly and as they claim, they do not come off easily. I made the mistake of trying to apply this one day while in the car with the family and my husband hit a pothole as I was approaching my lower lip. It was not pretty. I also swiped them on my hand to show my sister-in-law the colors and the stripes were still noticeable hours later. You also need to make sure your lips are well hydrated. Since they are water-based, they soak right into your lips, so, if your lips are dry or cracked, it will show....a lot.

Usually, I apply the Lipstain first and then apply a gloss on top for a little added shine. They are super lightweight. If I didn't apply a gloss over the top it would feel like I had nothing on at all. And I like that you can control how much color you put on. I would recommend starting light and then adding more if you need it.

The Outlast Lipstains are around $7.99 and can be found anywhere CoverGirl is sold. I would check the adds for sales. I saw CVS selling them for $4.89 last week. You can also log on to covergirl.com and put in your information and it will tell you the best shades for your skintone and coloring.

Hey, I came across your quote in a recent New York Times article and mentioned it - and linked to your blog - in a post I wrote about eyelash-enhancing Latisse. (Btw I agree with you, I'm not getting that stuff any time soon.)

I'm a fellow Washington blogger (plus journalist by day) and just thought it was cool to see you as a source. How did you happen to be contacted?

I never thought of putting gloss over the listain! Maybe mine would have stayed on better.
