Covergirl had launched the Outlast Longwear lipsticks a few months ago, and I had picked up a few shades from the range. I will start with the review of the shade “Magnetic Mauve”. Read on to find out more about this lipstick.
$9, prices vary from store to store.
No need to choose between moisture or color that lasts as long as you do—now you can have both! Outlast Longwear Lipstick doesn’t flake or crumble. It’s super-powered with moisture, so it stays super fresh and super flexible all day.
My Experience with Covergirl Outlast Longwear Lipstick Magnetic Mauve:
This lipstick comes in a beautiful reflective silver packaging with a transparent cap. The packaging is quite fuss-free and simple and reminded me a little of the Revlon Ultra HD lipstick. The name of the lipstick appears on a sticker on the side of the cap.
The lipstick does not swivel all the way down inside the tube. And there is always the danger of nicking some part of the lipstick while trying to put the cap on. Also, the packaging feels slightly flimsy.
Shade / Pigmentation:
Magnetic Mauve looks quite dark in the bullet but it swatches as a lovely mauve-ish pink. It has a very subtle shimmer in it. The shimmer is not too visible and only adds a slight sheen to the finish. This is a beautiful shade which will suit all skin tones and is apt for office wear too. The lipstick is nicely pigmented and one swipe is enough to cover the lips. I personally like swiping it twice to get a better finish.
Texture / Finish:
The texture of this lipstick feels like a hybrid between crème and gel. It applies smoothly on the lips and there is no tug at all. The formula feels quite soft and comfortable on the lips. The finish looks satiny and almost balm like. But it surely imparts a deeper color to the lips than a lip balm would.
The lipstick does not accentuate any lip lines. But I would recommend exfoliating the lips prior to application to avoid highlighting any dry patches. The lipstick does not feel drying on the lips, but it does not feel overly moisturizing either.
The lasting power of the lipstick is average and it stays put around 4 hours with some snacking / light meals. It does transfer, but not too much.
Pros of Covergirl Outlast Longwear Lipstick Magnetic Mauve:

• Nice satiny finish
• Strong pigmentation
• Does not feel drying on the lips
Cons of Covergirl Outlast Longwear Lipstick Magnetic Mauve:
• Average staying power
