Review: Covergirl's NatureLuxe Gloss Balm [Hibiscus and Clay]

I was very excited when I saw that Taylor Swift was the model for Covergirl's newest line of cosmetic products - NatureLuxe. Even the name of the line sounds cool. I picked these up at CVS a couple of weeks back. Check it out ~

What is it?
"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". 16 shades available. - Covergirl website

Retail price: $5.99-$7.49

My thoughts:
I like the sturdy packaging of these gloss balms. The colors are shown through the clear top cover which is easy to pop open and close. It has a light "lipstick smell" over the lightly pleasant berry scent. I love that it is very lightweight and moisturizing like a lip balm, but offers a light shine like a lip gloss [hence the name, gloss balm]. Hibiscus is a rosey pink-mauve color, and Clay is more of an honey apricot color with a hint of frost when applied. The gloss balms go on smoothly and is not sticky. It has a very "natural" look to it and is great for those days when you don't want to wear a lipstick or a shiny gloss. I usually have to reapply every four hours or so to keep the color and moisture. Oh yeah, it also has SPF 15!

Would I recommend it?: Yes, it's great for those days where you just want a light hint of color on your lips. I would also recommend it to people who are not a fan of lipsticks or sticky lip gloss, but is looking for a little color on the lips.

Will you be trying these?
