CoverGirl NatureLuxe Gloss Balm

Happy Friday! :D

I mentioned on my post before this that my original post from Wednesday was deleted along with your lovely comments! I hope Blogger can restore it, but for now, I posted it again, you can check out my previous post if you want to see it. :)

Anyways, I've been wanting to get a colored lip balm for the longest time, but I never got around to it and I also didn't know which brand was best. I've had a good experience with my CoverGirl products, so I decided to try

CoverGirl NatureLuxe Gloss Balm.

Get the sheer color and shine of a gloss with the soft and lightweight feel of SPF 15 balm. Fortified with mango and shea butter, this feel-good formula leaves your lips feeling decadent and delicious.
- Luxurious, sheer color with a hint of shine
- Contains decadent mango and shea butter
- Soft, lightweight feel
- SPF 15

How to apply:
- Lightly pucker your lips and apply gloss generously, working from the inside out. Be sure not to apply outside your lip line.
- Place a folded tissue between pressed lips to remove excess and prevent sticking.

I know it's pretty common sense how to put on lip balm, but I just thought I'd add that on here. :)
I usually put my regular lip balm on before this gloss balm - that way, it glides on easier. And I've also noticed that it makes the color pop out more.

I've read reviews where people were disappointed because it came on clear. I didn't have that problem - there was color for me (probably because I put my regular lip balm first) and the tint also lasted for about three hours.

Here is a swatch:

That's two swipes. It really is very sheer, but there is color - it's not plain and colorless.
If you're looking for a balm that will give you lipstick-like color, then this isn't it. But if you just want a balm that will give you tint, this is a good product.

I am happy with this product, and I definitely want to buy another one when I'm finished with mine. I want to try other colors. :)

Another thing I love about this - it smells great! And if I need to moisturize my lips in class, I can easily reach in to my bag and put this on. No need to open a lid, and dip my finger in to get balm (don't get me wrong though, I love my Rosebud Strawberry Salve!).

My lips get moisturized and I get some color, without worrying if I went over my lip line! :)

At Ulta, these are $6.99... but again, they are probably cheaper at your favorite drugstore.
For the price, I think it's worth giving it a try just to see if you'll like it or not. Even if you end up not liking it that much, it won't be a waste because you will get use out of it. Even if the color may not be enough for you, it really is a good lip balm.

And there are soooooo many colors to choose from!

Mine is Anemone (225).
They also have them in Tulip (205), Thistle (210), Hibiscus (215), Peony (220), Coral (230), Grenache (235), Muscat (240), Pinot (245), Cabernet (250), Marble (255), Clay (260), Sandstone (265), Spice (270), Cinnamon (275), and Clove (280).

16 colors! :D
*You can check out www.covergirl.com to see the actual colors.*

Just another thought, I'm guessing that the darker the color you pick, the more color you're gonna get. 
Makes sense, right? :)

Have you tried CoverGirl NatureLuxe Gloss Balm? Do you like it? Thoughts?
Is it something you might want to try?

Have a lovely weekend, everyone! :D

  15. After reading this review, this is definitely a product I would contemplate trying - I love lip gloss!! :)

  16. I guess the packaging is just very misleading because of the very bright red shade it implies. I always put on lip balm under my lipstick though, definitely :)
