Covergirl: New Natureluxe Collection + Review + Photos

I recently signed up to become a BzzAgent and received my first BzzCampaign kit in the mail a few days ago. (Pic below) I was sent free full-size samples of the Natureluxe Liquid Silk Foundation (350 Oak) and the Natureluxe Gloss Balm (215 Hibiscus). The Covergirl Natureluxe Collection is something I have been wanting to try out for a little while now and I'm glad that becoming a BzzAgent allows me to experience it for free..

Gloss Balm (215 Hibiscus) - w/o Flash
My Opinion (Foundation):
  • Agreed- does provide a silky & smooth application. 
  • Feels lightweight, almost as if I had no foundation on my face.
  • Nice refreshing scent, does not smell of chemicals.
  • Provides light coverage- not enough coverage for me since I have freckles and heavy dark circles. I recommend for light foundation users or first-timers.
My Opinion (Gloss Balm):
  • Agreed- provides a sheer color with just a bit of perfect shine.
  • Balm is non-sticky and very lightweight.
  • Color is beautiful. I thought the color would be a bit more like a lipstick color but I was surprised to find how sheer and light it was and felt.
  • Great light sweet scent, no smell of chemicals.
  • I recommend this balm to anyone. 
  • Another one of my favorite products.

  1. loves the balm!! i want one. i usually use a light lipstick and a clear lipgloss to get the effect of sheer lipgloss but this will put an end to that!!

    also, ive been using FIT for light weight coverage (mostly because i like and have an entire stash from great coupon deals (thanks for those, Aida!!)) but would love to try this lightweight formula.

    Thanks for the info!!! keep it coming! <3

  2. Cathy, you will definitely like the balm and the foundation is worth a try since you don't use foundation on a regular but I would wait until there's a great deal on it because it's pretty costly for a drugstore foundation.

    Thanks for the love girl!!
