Covergirl Outlast All-Day Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation review

Happy Thursday!  I haven’t posted in awhile as lots of personal stuff going on. I’ve had to scale back my weekly visits to Ulta, (which is killing me), but I did visit last week and got some great stuff.

Full disclosure, I’m not a big fan of full coverage foundation.  I have good skin for my age, and only spot conceal and use loose powder.  I was in Ulta and had a ton of coupons, along with their buy one get one 50% off sale going on, so it was time to try some new things.  CoverGirl Outlast All-Day Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation in Classic Ivory.  I rarely use liquid foundation, and am a lover of powder foundation when I use it. I have mature skin and a few spots that need covering. This product was $10.99 at Ulta, but I paid $5.50 with coupons and store specials. It’s one ounce and has an SPF of 20.

Here’s Ulta’s description- The Cover Girl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 foundation longwear that keeps you all day flawless. Longwear designed to stay fabulous all day because it has concealer and primer built in. Smooth, even coverage. SPF 20.

I’m always skeptical of 3 in 1 products.  Rarely do they do as advertised. I was happily wrong on this foundation. The claim of a primer, concealer and foundation was spot on.  I didn’t have to use concealer under my eyes, and barely had to use concealer elsewhere.  I have dark circles, and this foundation totally covered them.  The coverage last all day. I wish the SPF was higher, like a 30, as I use a moisturizer with a 30 SPF daily.  This has great coverage but is not too thick.  I have good skin, so I don’t have a lot I need to cover up. Plus the price can’t be beat. I will be buying this again. The picture I have was at lunchtime, no need to touch up.

I’m 58 and don’t have too many wrinkles.  It was great not having to use concealer under my eyes, as it always seems to settle in the many lines I have. Typical car photo, and it’s April here in Southeastern Wisconsin and I’m still wearing a winter coat! Oh, and my selfie skills suck! I heard on the radio that if you were born after 1980, you are likely to take 25,000 selfies in your lifetime. Yikes! Do people really want to see you that much? Of course my teenage son is constantly on Snapchat.

Color Correcting Concealers — My Ageless Elegance

Great post about which color correcting, and which colors are the best for your skin tone.

I started wearing makeup decades ago. I only recall concealer coming in various skin tone shades to cover dark circles and other flaws. Today, there are concealers in multiple colors, each with a specific job. Let’s take the time to gain some understanding about color correcting concealers and how they work. Very few of us have […]

Best Beauty products of 2016-at least for me anyway! LOL!

Happy New Year early!  I’ll be glad that 2016 is coming to an end.  It’s been a rough year here in the United States.  That being said, I did discover some great beauty products.

Here are my top ten picks for 2016.  Some products have been out for awhile, but I just discovered them. I’ve been using these products all year, and I must say I really like them all. So here goes.

Hope for Everywhere Concealer  I started using this in July. It’s a great under eye concealer by Philosophy.  It’s a bit pricey at $26 USD, but I got another tube on Ebay for $7.50.

Caption Nail Stamping OMG!  I’ve been having so much fun nail stamping.  I bought two kits at Ulta, but I see they don’t carry them anymore. I’ve used 4 of the 24 designs and get compliments all the time.

Julep Maven Beauty Box Subscription Where can you get great nail polish for free??? I signed up for a three month subscription and got a box of 12 full size bottles of Julep nail polish for free. You can pick what comes in your box, and I have to say the nail polish is fabulous. You can skip months as well.

POREfessional Face Primer by Benefit I’m so glad I watched the how to video for this on the Ulta website. It virtually makes pores disappear.  I also use it under my eyes to help cover up wrinkles. A little goes a long way.

Clinique Chubby Stick Lip Balm This stuff is awesome!  I bought this before we went on a tropical vacation.  I usually have eight or so lip colors in my purse at any given time. Since we were traveling for 10 days to two different countries, I wanted to streamline my make up. This lip balm is the perfect color and stays on really well. Plus you don’t need a mirror to apply it. The color Bountiful Blush would work on any skin tone.

Maybelline Super Stay Foundation This is a great powder foundation. While it doesn’t have an SPF, it covers well and smooths out your skin tone. It comes with a sponge applicator, and is great for travel.

Easy to carry, includes mirror

Super Nail Swiss Silk Nail Wraps These babies are a lifesaver. If you break a nail, just glue these wraps on and you are good to go. I have used them on nails that I have broken below the skin line.  They work great while your own nails grow out.

No Lift Nails Cuticle Oil This is some amazing stuff.  I’ve been using this daily for the past six months. I use a drop on each nail before I go to bed. It smells amazing and makes my nails really strong. I still have half a bottle left and it only cost $7 at Sally Beauty Supply.

Cuticle Oil 7-10-16

Smells so good!

Garnier SkinActive Micellar Water This is one of my favorite products of 2016. I use to use make up removing wipes, but they never seem to be wet enough for me. This cleanser is so gentle, and it takes off eye make up as well.  It leaves your skin soft with no residue. I’ve been using this for a year , and I love it.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water 1-8-16

Smashbox Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer I got a deluxe sample of this in my December Ipsy bag.  This turns any cream lipstick into a matte lip color.  I haven’t really jumped on the matte lip color bandwagon, but this product also has another great benefit.  You can use this around your lips to keep lip color from feathering. I’ve been using this daily and it works great. I have some lines around my mouth, and this makes them disappear. A super product.

Hope for Everywhere Concealer by Philosphy-Review

Happy Saturday!  I purchased Philosophy Hope for Everywhere Concealer back in July at Ulta. I recently had a 20% off my entire purchase at Ulta, so I picked some up.  I paid $19.86.  The color I have is 4.5, which isn’t on the website, but was available in the store. I paid $26 back in July, and usually don’t spend this much on concealer.  It works well and stays on all day.  I have dark circles and this covers them well. My under eye lines do seem to be decreased with this concealer.

I looked on Ebay for giggles and found this concealer for a whopping $7.50.  Same exact concealer as I bought at Ulta for way less.  I purchase the majority of my perfume on Ebay for super cheap too. Winner winner chicken dinner!

Almay Wake Up Concealer-Review

I’m always on the hunt for the perfect under eye concealer.   I think I may have found it. I was shopping at my favorite store Ulta, and had a $4 off coupon for any Almay product.  I bought the light shade; it matches perfectly with my pasty white skin. I don’t have issues with puffiness, just dark circles.  A little goes a long way, and it has a built in brush that I like.  I think I paid a few a dollars for it. It’s very natural looking and lightens up my under eye just right. It’s very creamy and easy to blend. I had a Ulta store coupon for $3.50 that I used also.

Almay Wake up Concealer May 2015A definite winner!
