Hello gorgeous ladies,
I am a lipstick lover and I can’t really resist lip products on those makeup aisles that shout out me to take them home! I was in search of a liquid lipstick that actually stays on the lips and feels comfortable at the same time. So, when I saw this baby sitting on the Covergirl aisle, I quickly googled IMBB to find a review, and I was surprised that this has not been covered on IMBB yet. So, I decided to pick some up and review them myself 😛 Let’s get into the review of the Covergirl Outlast All Day Lip Colour in 517 Red Hot.
America’s #1 long-wear lip color!* Our advanced formula, with resilient, brilliant coverage, color, and shine, gives you up to 16 hours of color that stays true, in just 2 easy, breezy steps. Outlast’s long-lasting lip color has a moisturizing topcoat that helps lock in shine – no feathering, no bleeding.
CAD 9.99 (approximately INR 515).
My Experience with Covergirl 517 Red Hot Outlast All Day Lip Color:
Breaking the ice, I would say that Covergirl Outlast All-Day Lip Colour is a great product if you are looking for a long-lasting liquid lipstick that lasts on the lips all day. It has insane coverage, super colour payoff, huge colour selection, amazing staying power, and travel-friendly packaging! What else does one need from a liquid lipstick? Since this product comes with a matte lip colour and top coat, it can either be worn matte or glossy as you like! The lip colour duo comes in a box packaging with two products in it, the liquid lipstick and the top coat.
All-Day Colour Coat: The liquid lipstick which is the All-Day Colour Coat, looks and feels exactly like a lip gloss while applying, but after application, it dries to a complete matte finish! Covergirl suggests that for a smooth and even application, the lips should not be pressed/rubbed together until at least one minute and let the lip colour dry down and set completely. Once dry, the color is completely smudge proof, budge proof, waterproof, and all the other proofs that you can think of!! I swatched it on the back of my hands in the store and after it dried, I tried to rub it off, and after struggling for a while, the veins on the back of my hand started to hurt, so I stopped my efforts in rubbing away the lip colour; the colour was just as I had applied it! I was flabbergasted!!
Moisturising top coat: The second step of this lip kit is the moisturising top coat. Although the top coat is an optional step, I believe it is essential if you want to hydrate your lips and add a glossy shine. This top coat comes in a lipstick bullet but is clear like a non-tinted lip balm. It adds a fair amount of moisture and glossiness to the lips without depositing oodles of shimmer. If used on its own, on bare lips, it will give exactly the same feel and finish as a clear lip balm/gloss.
The colour that I am reviewing today is called “Red Hot.” How could I not get this one! This is a gorgeous bright red colour with neutral undertones. Since the packaging of the lip colour is clear, the shade of this lipstick is visible through the tube. I prefer wearing this colour with the top coat as it provides a beautiful shine and gives a more youthful look to the lips.
All in all, I would say, that if you are looking for a super long lasting and non-transferable lip color that does not need any touch ups until you want to take it off, this lipstick range from Covergirl is for you.
