Review: CoverGirl NatureLuxe Liquid Silk Foundation and Gloss Balm

As I mentioned in a recent post, I'm a very girly girl, so I'm always happy to try out new makeup and skin care.  Recently, thanks to BzzAgent, I had the opportunity to use two new products from CoverGirl, the NatureLuxe Silk Foundation and Gloss Balm. Here's a bit about these two products, from the CoverGirl website:

NatureLuxe Liquid Silk Foundation-
Redefine natural beauty with our lightweight silk foundation. With a touch of cucumber water and a hint of jojoba and rose hip extracts, our light yet luxurious formula takes heavy weight out of your polished finish.

NatureLuxe Gloss Balm-
Get the sheer color and shine of a gloss with the soft, lightweight feel of SPF 15 balm. Fortified with mango and shea butter, this feel-good formula leaves your lips feeling decadent and delicious.
When my box arrived with these two products, I immediately headed to the bathroom to try them on. And when I opened the foundation and started applying it, I realized that I haven't worn anything but powder foundation for over five years! I never have been a fan of liquid foundation in general, since I've always found it complicated to blend and apply properly, and I don't like the feel of heavy foundation on my face.

Much to my happy surprise, liquid foundation has come a long way since I last gave it a try! Even though I picked out the color of my foundation online, not in person, the color was perfect. The liquid foundation went on light and once I had it applied, I barely could feel it on my face.  The first night that I wore it, I was heading out with my best friend and when I asked her what she thought, she said it looked great and she couldn't tell I was wearing foundation either!  I've since worn the NatureLuxe Liquid Silk Foundation on a number of occasions and have continued to be extremely pleased. It goes on light, covers well and looks really natural. And the foundation has a SPF of 10, which I also love!

I've also liked the NatureLuxe Gloss Balm a lot. It's soft and feels good on my lips, the color is nice and brightens up my smile, and it's not sticky and thick. Another great addition to my makeup kit!

You can find both these products wherever you buy CoverGirl makeup.  I recommend checking them out!

Disclosure: I received these products from CoverGirl and BzzAgent to review for myself. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone.

I like the foundation too! I want to try the lip balm too, but I couldnt justify the price at the time. Kind of expensive.
