What a steal: CoverGirl’s Outlast Lipstain

I’m a huge fan of lipstains, but unfortunately many otherwise-awesome makeup brands seem to make a hatchet job of creating them. Not so CoverGirl, whose Outlast Lipstain collection is one of the best and biggest on the beauty landscape, with a barely-there feel that I love. Virtually weightless and almost sheer as opposed to cakey like many others, Outlast Lipstains (as seen on Drew Barrymore here) come in an innovative felt-tip pen form for precision application and have a staying power that is second to none. They are water-based colourants that infuse into the top layer of lips rather than coating the outside, so there is no waxy, sticky residue to gradually chew off. The rather clever formula contains conditioners to soften and smooth lips, and they are one of the few lipstains out there that don’t contain alcohol, which can dry out lips like you wouldn’t believe. They are soon to be available in two new shades too - Everbloom Kiss (my pick)& Sassy Mauve – and are ridiculously good value at $19.50. Buy in bulk!
