I figured it was high time for my first foundation review on Hoots of a Night Al, so I decided to start with one of my tried and true favorites. The Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation is a great, affordable, medium coverage foundation. With 14 shades to choose from, it will fit a range of skin tones. Another perk is that it can be found at most drugstores as well as Walmart and Target for around $10 or less.
As always, I typically apply my foundation with a MAC 187 duo fibre face brush. I have had this brush for years, and it really blends my foundation evenly. However, I have also applied this foundation with my fingers, and the results are still great.
As you can see in the photo below, one layer of the Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 foundation covers almost all of my redness and helps with my under eye circles. The “3-in-1” claim implies that this foundation combines primer, concealer, and foundation in one step. I am happy to say it can be layered to achieve fuller coverage for trouble spots. Of course if you have more severe skin issues, a concealer will always aid in covering up those areas.
On my combination skin, the foundation lasts for around 10-12 hours without a primer, so I think their claims are pretty fair! With a primer, it lasts even longer, of course.
Another perk of this foundation is that it has SPF 20 included, so you’re helping to protect your skin all day. This product is unscented, which is nice. It has a relatively matte finish, and you can add a finishing powder to help your look stay fresh all day.
Covergirl’s Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation is one of my go-to drugstore foundations for the price and quality. If you’re looking for a reasonably priced product for everyday wear, I would give it a try!
