CoverGirl NatureLuxe Foundation and Gloss Balm Review

I am sure you have seen the new Covergirl commercials featuring Taylor Swift. They have been all over the TV lately. The product she is advertising is their new NatureLuxe line. NatureLuxe is a more natural line made with cucumber water, jojoba and rose hip extracts. They also opted to use bioresin (a renewable, sustainable, sugarcane-derived plastic) for a natural packaging, which I totally support.
I signed up to be a BzzAgent for NatureLuxe line from Covergirl so I could try it out and share what I thought. I received the NatureLuxe silk foundation as well as the NatureLuxe gloss balm.
I like the feel of the foundation a lot. I chose the color flax. It was a pretty close match for me, fairly light but it didn't make me look too pale. It wasn't heavy or greasy feeling. It gave more coverage than a tinted moisturizer, but less than the foundations I usually use. It is a light to medium coverage that felt nice on my skin. I have used it daily for two weeks now and have been quite happy with it. I haven't had any problems develop on my skin.
The one thing I didn't care for about the foundation was the smell. It has a really strong smell that took me a while to get used to. It isn't a bad smell necessarily, but strong. The good thing is that it does fade over time (or maybe you just get used to it), but after the first 30 minutes or so I don't notice it any longer.
I tried the thistle colored gloss balm. I may have chosen a color that was a little pinker than I usually wear, however, I was pleased with it. Keep in mind, however, that I generally wear tinted lip balm so this gloss balm is right up my alley. The thing I really like about the NatureLuxe gloss balm is that is has shine. It is a tinted lip balm and lip gloss in one. I plan to try it in a different shade and I think I will like it even more!
Covergirl NatureLuxe foundation is available in 14 different shades and the gloss is available in 16, so you are sure to find a color you like. The products are available at most drugstores. I have 4 $2.00 off foundation coupons I can mail out if anyone is interested in giving the product a try. Send me an email with your mailing address if you are interested.
