CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Polish Swatch - Midnight Magic and Timeless Rubies




I got around to do some swatches today. I wished my nails were a bit longer but that will do for now. I purchased these two polishes at K-Mart. I don't recall seeing these shades in other stores.





Midnight Magic is a shimmery metallic foil with an interesting mix of colors. It's dark grey with blue and green shimmers. At certain angles, I noticed some purple duochrome. I was able to get opaque coverage in just two coats. The formula wasn't too thin or thick. Application wasn't too bad. It's not as smooth as I would like but it wasn't too difficult to work with. I really dislike the chunky scared cap. A smaller and round cap is fits better in my hand and is easier to handle.

Midnight Magic reminded me of Zoya Feifei so I decided to swatch them side by side to see how they compare. Midnight Magic has a bit more of a purple duochrome. Though both make a pretty good dupe, Midnight Magic has a more textured look. Feifei looks very smooth. I like Midnight Magic for the duo-chrome but prefer the formula and smoothness of Feifei better.








Timeless Rubies is another interesting shade. Formula is the same as Midnight Magic and I was able to get opacity in two coats. This one also has some duochrome magic to it. It's a reddish burgundy color with some pink and bronze shimmers.

Overall, I'm quite happy with these two CoverGirl nail polishes. The formula isn't the best but it was doable and the colors are interesting enough to make them stand out from the rest of the shades they have available.








What do you think of these colors? Are they something you'd wear?

  1. Ohhh pretty! The Timeless Rubies kind of remind me of Sally Hansen Shine Luster in Lava (which I love!)

    1. Lava is much prettier I think. It has a stronger duochrome and feels smoother.

  2. Timeless Rubies looks gorgeous. I definitely have to get some CoverGirl polishes to try out but I keep forgetting to buy them whenever I am at CVS or Walgreens. LOL Hopefully I remember next time.

  4. I have Zoya FeiFei, so I wouldn't need Midnight Magic. Timeless Rubies is really pretty.

    1. I got them during a BOGO sale and there was no other colors that I liked so I got stuck with those two :D

  6. Those are both very pretty! I haven't seen them before so I wonder if they are only in certain stores?

  7. Holy crow! Love these! I don't have any CG polish (okay maybe one from their long dc'ed line) but once these hit Canada, I will be on the hunt xD
    Thanks for sharing~
