Product Review: Covergirl NatureLuxe Gloss Balm in Hibiscus

Sunday, July 29, 2012

     Hi lovelies! How's your day? It's raining cats and dogs outside so to those who are staying outside their houses today don't forget to bring your rain gadgets (umbrella, rain boots, rain coat, scarfs, etc) to keep you dry and warm. This cozy weather is perfect for movie marathon while sipping a hot cup of your favorite drink. As for me, the stay-at-home mom that's always at home obviously and bumming around with my son wants to go out and spend some time at the mall. I'm craving for milk tea and yogurt :D I guess will have to get my milk tea fix at 7-11 . 
   
     Before going outside, I just wanna share this review on Covergirl's Gloss Balm from the NatureLuxe collection.The line features a new generation of makeup luxury that are lightweight and do not contain a ton of synthetic ingredients. This lip gloss was included from the Everyday Essentials Loot  that I won from The Beauty Junkee's 3rd Grand Anniversary Giveaway. I actually have two bullets of this gloss and I gave the other one to my sister. The shade is 215 Hibiscus and I think flatters most skin color.

Natureluxe Gloss Balm exchanges select heavier emollients for natural mango, shea and other butters which are lighter, more luxurious feeling alternatives.
 The Gloss Balm is part of CoverGirl Natureluxe, a luxury makeup line that exchanges select heavier synthetics for carefully-chosen natural ingredients, while delivering a polished makeup look and a lightweight feel.
Natureluxe Gloss Balm contains a lightweight blend of mango, shea and other natural butters, used in place of heavier feeling emollients. Mango and shea butters are lighter and more luxurious-feeling than heavier, synthetic emollients. The formulation provides an occlusive barrier that helps protect lips against drying elements like the sun and wind.

What I like:
  • The product contains mango, shea and natural butters so I guess there's a lesser synthetic emollient in the ingredients.
  • Gives moisture to the lips.
  • Has a nice pop of color and glossy finish.
  • The container is sleek.
  • It has SPF 15 so you get a good amount of sun protection for your lips.
  • Has manufacturing and expiry date stamped on the container.
  • Smells good :D
  • Has wide selection of colors.
What I don't like:
  • Wears off easily.
  • Quite pricey for a lip gloss. 
Will I repurchase? Maybe. It's a nice gift for college students or girls who likes subtle color on their lips. This is also a great gift for office girls who likes lip gloss with a hint of color.

Recommendation:
     I give this a 3.75/5 rating. It's a nice lip gloss with a hint of color that you can use everyday. I just wish it contains more amount of product. Since I'm a cheapskate and will only spend my money for budget-friendly cosmetics, I have to pass this one. I'll recommend this to a friend and suggest this as a great gift for those who loves prettifying their lips for casual look.


     What brand of lip gloss do you own? Thanks for sharing guys! Stay safe and have a blessed Sunday everyone :D


Good Times!~

  3. I'm not much of a fan of glossy balms. I am fond of using matte lipsticks and I usually wear a matte balm underneath since the lipsticks tend to make the lips dry. Anyway, thanks for the review, Kath! ♥
