Covergirl's New Natureluxe Products

I am not a heavy makeup user. Generally, I use it to conceal flaws or for special occasions. I confess that I started using one brand of cosmetic products (not Covergirl) as a teen and never really switched to anything else. I didn't use much makeup, liked what I had used in the past, and saw no reason to switch. That being said, I recently enjoyed two products from Covergirl's natureluxe cosmetics line that have given me a reason to switch from the old brand.

Thanks to the lovely people over at BzzAgent, I was able to receive a sample of Covergirl natureluxe liquid silk foundation, number 310. This particular foundation was SPF 10 and I liked that. I live in Florida and am fair skinned, so I can use all the help I can get to protect my skin from the sun. As for application and coverage, I found it pretty standard, but enjoyable to use. I am pleased to say that it actually smelled nice. Certain other products by other companies have a smell that is not necessarily offensive, not nice either.

I was really impressed by the natureluxe lip gloss balm, number 215, that I received. When I first looked at it, I thought it was lipstick. I wear lipstick like once a year, so I was kinda disappointed, but decided to try it anyway. I was pleasantly surprised and took another look at the container. Indeed, it wasn't lipstick. It was “gloss balm.” The product produces the appearance of lip gloss, but feels like a lip balm. The product kept my lips moist for hours and had a spf 15 rating. The color faded much quicker than the moisture, but I still enjoyed the product. I actually prefer to just have my natural lip color anyway.

Covergirl has given me a reason to switch from my old brand. Although I received this product as a sample, I would be willing to pay money for it.
