The real makeup MVP of the pandemic? Liquid lipsticks.
I was obsessed with these since before we had to wear masks, but with all the mouth covering going on, if you are bothering to even wear a lipstick, then a liquid one is the best way to go.
Now since so many brands have their own formulas it can be kinda tough to pick out the right one for you. I’ve tried a lot of them out there and when it comes to drugstore, Covergirl has a great one.
The Outlast Moisturizing Lip Color with Topcoat (C$9.97) is a long-lasting lip colour that is a two-step system. There is the colour itself, which dries down to a matte texture, and then there is the moisturizing balm, which locks in colour and adds shine and moisture.
These have been out for a while now but Covergirl actually just released a collection of nudes to choose from that I’m all for. The New Neutrals collection is comprised of seven nude shades from light to dark that are sure to be flattering on just about any skin tone. I received two of them which are right up my alley, Porcelain (peach nude with shimmer) and Dusty Blush (a rose nude), and both are so great for summer (especially with a little tan).
The lip colour part is applied via a doe-foot applicator, letting you control where you are applying the product. For this collection I would say it’s a buildable coverage, which I like since I prefer a lighter nude as opposed to a darker one. These do dry down matte and truthfully can be a little dry on the lips in general, so that’s why it’s handy to keep the moisturizing balm handy for some quick bursts of hydration.
As for longevity, these really do last a long time once applied. I do find that the balm can minimize the wear time a little bit, but overall you’ll get a lot of hours after just one application (even after eating and drinking).
When I compare these to other liquid lipsticks out there, especially the Maybelline ones, I would recommend these. I love the Maybelline formula as well, but I do find those especially hard to remove at the end of the day and I love how these Covergirl ones come with the balm (which is also an amazing lip hydrator in general).
Have you tried the Covergirl Outlast Moisturizing Lip Color with Topcoat?
