Cover Girl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 foundation review

Hey there my beauties!!!! its been a LONG time! yea i know! ive been wanting to film but i lost my cord to my camera and i was just too lazy to get another one but I  finally did! so YAY!.. ok anyway.. on to the review..



SO i decided to jump on the bandwagon and try out this new foundation. If you dont feel like reading about it... just watch my video:


















Now for those who would like to read.. im just going to go over what I said in the video. This foundation claims to have the staying power of a primer, coverage of a concealer and blendability of a foundation.


I used color 842 "medium beige" and in MAC im NC30/ NC35 and i think its the perfect match

Staying power of primer:

Stays pretty well.. Ive worn it for about 10 hrs and at the end of the day you cant see any redness or blemishes AND has a nice silicone finish. Almost feels like powder at the end.

Coverage of a concealer:

this is great! it applies nicely as a concealer and u literally only need a tiny tiny amount.. less than peas size to cover anything on your face.. i usually use it as an under eye concealer and it covers my bags flawlessly! AND doesnt crease!

Blendability of a foundation:

This foundation blends so incredibly well whether you use a paddle brush, stippling brush beauty blender, even your hands! looks natural no matter what!!!  Covers all  the redness with one pump which is amaze!


This is light to medium coverage, one pump is enough in my opinion to cover everything and make your face look flawless. 2 pumps is definitely full coverage.

It claims that its shine free. Once applied, it does go on matte and feels like a powder finish... however, if you have oily skin, i still recommend setting it with a powder.

I
 definitely recommend this foundation. Im picky with foundations because I break out easily and this hasnt broken me out at all! i will definitely be buying it again when im out! aprice range is good about $10 (depending on where you get it). recommended for the beauty on a budget because you dont have to buy a primer and concealer! :)

now here are some more pictures of me wearing the product so you can see how it looks :)

I hope you ladies have a wonderful day!

Dating and not wearing makeup.... when do YOU stop?

Hey dolls! Its been SOOOOO long since I've posted a blog! I know I know!! Bad Norma!! BAD! *lowers head in shame* ok.. i DO want to start posting more, because I think blogging is amazing! And I think its a perfect way to get to know others who share the same interest..( hello captain obvious) but I also think its a great way to talk to people about certain topics you might not want to talk to others about.. so PLEASE!!! give me topics to talk about! tweet me and let me  now!!! twitter.com/nonoSTARbetch whether it be about makeup, fashion trends, fitness, sex, love, dating.. ANYTHING! feel free to ask anonymously even if youd like! ok.. so anyway! on to my topic...... :)


SO, Dating and makeup.... theres something ive been noticing lately... how i wear less and less makeup when I spend the night with my new guy. weve only been dating for like 6 months but still... thats a little long for me nowadays.. haha. (overall ive known him for 14 years... since 7th grade.. YIKES!) 


Anywho, just like any typical girl, I would wear makeup on our first dates and so fourth i mean c',mon  my skin isnt in the best shape.. ESPECIALLY MY EYEBROWS!!! [they dont grow anymore cause i overplucked in middle school :( ] I tend to just keep my makeup simple on a daily basis, just foundation, mascara , eyliner and my brows... nothng too dramz. Then it got to the "slepover" point... i mean wed go out to dinner or hang out and whatever so id have no choice but to sleep with my makeup off.. [i mean i COULD have took it off but heaven forbid he see the way i look when i wake up right? ew!]   then when Id just go over frmmy house id wear mascara sometimes and a tiny bit of my powder foundaton [i hate my skin] ... and my brows of course.. nothing too drastic... then as i got more comfortable no mascara and [eeep] NO FOUNDATION! [whoa!!!]...  yup... he assures my i dont need the makeup, but you know how boys are just trying to be nice n shiet.


I really will go NOWHERE with out doing my brows.. like theyre super thin and i hate it.. so when i spent the night, id fill em with PENCIL so when i wake up, they still would be semi drawn in... now im like .. EH... i just draw em in with a lil bit of powder.. and thats BARELY.. just where im really bald, ill fill it in a tiny bit... but when i wake up theyre totally gone. this was recently like.. month 5. We are going camping in 2 weeks and im not taking makeup because that would be silly.. so hes going to be forced to see me with NOTHING like aaallll day! [ :( ]   ugh... im sure after that , ill stop drawing them completely when i spend the night.. . but ugh.. im dreading it just thinking bout it!!!!




so my question to you ladies, is how long do u wait til you are completely bare faced in front of your guy??? and how much makeup do u usually wear while dating???  id love to hear your thoughts!! and please feel free to ask questions for a new topic :)




AND make sure to follow me on instagram! i just got one!!! :) my name on there is: normiepoo 


have a good day loves! and ill see you guys soon! :)
