Covergirl Outlast Lipstain: Sharpies for the Lips!

I first read about this from Gloss Queen, who raved about Covergirl’s latest lip colour range – The Outlast Lipstain. It’s the lipstick effect; I knew I had to have it.

The water-based colourants of Outlast Lipstain give lips a beautiful, lightweight flush of colour 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 colour without any hassle!

The lipstain I have is in Sassy Mauve.

The Outlast Lipstain reminded me of a marker pen. Everytime I applied the lipstain on my lips, it’s as though I’m running a pink Sharpie over my lips πŸ˜› Β The firm marker-like tip gives it precise application. It contains water-based dyes, so it does not have that waxy and sticky residue.

As it is a lipstain, it does not kiss off. Five to ten minutes upon application, I tried rubbing it off with a tissue, and it wouldn’t budge. It will not give you that shine lipgloss or lipsticks give you, but if you’re tired of having to re-apply your lip colour every few hours, this would save you the time. I’d just top it off with clear gloss.

So, how does this compare to Benefit’s Benetint?

It’s pretty darn similar, if you ask me. They’re equally long-lasting as a lipstain. The Covergirl lipstain tastes fruity, whereas the Benetint is rosy. I’ve not tried using the Covergirl lipstain as a cheek stain though. When I do, I’ll let you know how that goes. In terms of lip stains, I prefer the Covergirl as it has a range of shades to choose from, when you only get one shade with Benetint.

The lipstains are available in Cinnamon Smile, Flirty Nude, Berry Smooch, Sassy Mauve, Wild Berry Wink, Teasing Blush, Plum Pout, Coy Coral, Bit of Blossom and Everbloom Kiss.

Covergirl Outlast Lipstain lippies retail at AU$17.95 and is available at Priceline.

What I like about it: Inexpensive and long-lasting lip stain.

What I do not like about it: It might give young children the wrong impression of using a “marker pen” on the lips πŸ˜›

    owh my!
    i’ve seen this a long time (when it just got out)
    therefore no reviews yet and i was afraid of getting it.
    since it’s such a hassle when it’s not readily available in malaysia
    i guess i’ll go for sheer colours any tips?

  3. GlossQueen

    Yay! I’m glad you love it too! I’m planning on getting a few more next time they’re on sale.
