Covergirl Outlast Stay Luminous Natural Glow Foundation is a new foundation that launched with the Covergirl Summer 2015 Collection which promises all day wear and with a radiant, luminous finish.
I’m not really a lover of luminous foundations. Glow-y anything just doesn’t work out well for me as I have a fuller face and I applying shimmery, glow-y foundation seems to put a spotlight on my rounder face.
But indeed, Covergirl Outlast Stay Luminous Natural Glow Foundation does so tempt…!
Covergirl Outlast Stay Luminous Natural Glow Foundation comes in a 1 oz glass pump bottle that will set you back $9.99 at drugstores. This released in a few shades but I believe it is safe to say that you’ll see it available in more shades and likely it will be a permanent addition to Covergirl’s Collection as we head deeper into Summer. It seems like some stores got preview displays, like Harmons, and that display only had a limited amount of colors but I’m positive they’ll be more.
Covergirl Outlast Stay Luminous Natural Glow Foundation (842 Medium Beige)
I’m not really a liquid foundation lover as I prefer creams myself so I wasn’t too keen on purchasing a liquid foundation but the texture surprised me and it is thicker and creamier than I imagined it would be. It reminded me a bit of Yves Saint Laurent Le Teint Touche Éclat Foundation in texture and just the general idea of the finish as well. It does apply with a soft, hydrating feel but it sets to more of a satin-y matte. But no worries if you have drier skin as I didn’t have an issue with this clinging to my drier areas. It had a very soft, even, seamless finish and didn’t feel like I was wearing anything at all on my face. Coverage is light to medium when built and wears for a good five hours with some fading at hour five. It has no fragrance that I detected. It does not contain SPF.
It doesn’t have any shimmer or glitter and honestly, I didn’t notice much of a glow on my skin but in swatches you can sorta kinda see a bit of golden luminosity in the blended finish on the left hand side of my arm. If you look at the ingredients mica is one of the last items on the list so this is where the “luminous natural glow” comes into play I guess! I tried it in shade 842 which is a medium beige since my skin is a bit darker at the moment. In the bottle it looks like a lighter beige but once I apply it on my skin is has a bit yellow to it which makes my skin look a little tired and dull.
Honestly, the formula isn’t too bad here! It’s just the color doesn’t quite seem right for me and my skin looks a dull and lackluster with it on. I think they went with a bit of yellow to give it a golden kinda glow but it ends up making me look sickly! Not a cool look! Who knows maybe another shade might work better for me!?
You might like this one. I’m just a bit meh on it myself. I like the formula, the wear is pretty good, and the finish very nice and natural! It’s just the color that I wasn’t particularly impressed with. Plus it could prove disappointing if you are expect-y a glow or a luminous finish so do keep that in mind prior to purchasing!
