Review: CoverGirl Outlast Lipstains

So when I saw these, I knew I had to try 'em. There aren't a whole lot of "bargain" lip/cheek stains around and of the high-end stains, the color spectrum is quite limited. Cover Girl's Outlast Lipstains ($8.49) contain water-based colorants to give lips a light-weight flush that won't come off for hours in pen/marker form. I had to go to CVS the other night, so I picked this up in #415 - Teasing Blush. It was one of the lighter colors there (or so I thought.) I eagerly ripped it open and began applying the medium raspberry stain. I was pleased by the fluidity and smoothness of the liquid. It was deeper in color than I had expected and there was a pleasant smell to it, which led me to believe that it would taste good, but, guess what? It doesn't. I was hoping that the lasting power would live up to expectations, but bad news, if you lick your lips, it will be gone in 10 minutes. Thankfully, this stain is non-drying, unlike other contenders in this category. Bottom line: Reviews are mixed. Some love it, some hate it. I'm somewhere inbetween.
Color varitey and price are its high points. Low points are lasting power and taste. YOU BE THE JUDGE!
