On a shoot recently with the one and only Pat McGrath, we made sure to quiz her about her current beauty obsessions. Without any hesitation, she pulled out a clear plastic zip-lock bag stuffed full of Cover Girl's latest product, Outlast Lipstain. 'You've got to see these. They're amazing! Look at the colours!' Pat spent 10 minutes showing us how she can't live without them and telling us she keeps having to order more because models tend to slip them into their bags. The Lipstains last for hours and are water-based so won't dry out your lips. 'Imagine you apply the stain and then add lip-gloss if you're going out. They're such an easy way to wear colour and they're so cheap you can try every shade and you won't break the bank. There's a recession happening, baby,' she said. Pat's personal favourite shades? Plum Pout and Berry Smooch. There's only one downside: Cover Girl is only available in America. So next time you're Stateside, stock up! But how about this for a teaser… We heard on the beauty grapevine that Max Factor is launching a lip product at the end of the year which sounds strangely similar to CG's lipstain! Watch this space.
