The product

Given the fast-paced world we live in, we think we can all wholeheartedly agree that when it comes to everyday products, we’re looking for beauty picks that can help us simplify our routines.

And our makeup routine just got about three steps lighter thanks to this new and innovative 3-in-1 primer, foundation and concealer from COVERGIRL.

COVERGIRL Outlast Extreme Wear 3-in-1 Full Coverage Foundation preps skin just like your favourite go-to primer, while providing a flawless full coverage finish that still looks natural on skin. It combines the skin tone unifying powers of a foundation and the imperfection perfecting powers of a bloody good concealer, for a full face base in a single product.

We’re talking 24 hours of lightweight, cake-free wear and all at an affordable drugstore price – honestly, hold us back before we buy out our local Chemist Warehouse.

Here’s what our panel of Review Crew® testers had to say about this innovative 3-in-1 foundation formula.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the COVERGIRL Outlast Extreme Wear 3-in-1 Full Coverage Foundation.

The full coverage, yet natural finish: Our members really liked that they were able to easily conceal imperfections and perfect their skin tone without their foundation looking cakey or creasing throughout the day.

The handy 3-in-1 formula: Reviewers liked the convenience of having three base products in one easy-to-use product. It meant they could quickly apply the foundation in lieu of a primer, foundation and concealer, with many members saying that the foundation adequately covered dark circles, imperfections and discolouration with little to no effort.

The affordable price point: Considering the fact that the foundation boasted a whopping three products in one, our reviewers were pleasantly surprised that the base product was in fact a drugstore purchase. BRB while we scour the shelves of our local Chemist Warehouse for several bottles of the stuff.

The verdict

“It has a lightweight, silky texture and I used a sponge to apply evenly to my face, starting on my dark circles… It has a moisturising effect and lets my skin breath without feeling heavy. It produces a natural looking finish and... has strong staying power and I love how it conceals my imperfections. My skin looks glowy and not shiny at all. This foundation covers beautifully and is perfect for all day wear. My skin feels hydrated and the foundation does not highlight any wrinkles. I would recommend this foundation for its coverage and long lasting results. It does not irritate my skin and delivers remarkable results.”

“To start with, the packaging is cute – a glass bottle with a handy pump applicator. The shade I chose was a good colour match for my skin.... a little does go a long way with this foundation. You can always apply more if you need it. Although it's thick it applies easily to my skin and dries super quickly. I don’t need powder or anything to set it. Once it's on for a full coverage foundation it feels fairly nice on my skin. Heavier than say a bb cream, but not uncomfortable. The foundation covers all my blemishes and stays put all day long! I’m impressed with its lasting power and how it looks natural for full coverage. It's affordable too!”

“I generally only wear “high end” foundations so this has really been a gem product. At first I thought that it was a little runny compared to some of my other favourite foundations but I was pleasantly surprised. I was in the shade ‘Ivory’ which was an absolutely perfect match! Application was easy and blended like a dream, very impressed with the coverage too. I didn’t find I needed to build up on the foundation but it was definitely buildable for those wanting a fuller look. No noticeable scent and lasted a full work day didn’t feel cakey throughout. Bonus points for no oxidising. I especially loved the finish of this foundation.”
