In winter months, my skin, cuticles and lips dry out faster than a normal person would think possible. So I'm game to try anything that helps keep my bits hydrated. If it looks good, then it's a double score I can't pass up.
I recently tried CoverGirl's NatureLuxe Gloss Balm in Grenache and Sandstone. These lippies are filled with mango and shea butter and even have an SPF of 15. They feel hydrating and smooth like a balm, but also have a slightly shiny texture. What more could you ask for?
The two colors I tried don't pack a powerful color punch, but look natural, make my lips feel moist (there has to be a better word) and really pretty. Plus, the color lasted longer than I had expected. Some lip balms "over-hydrate" the lips, making them flake; opening the the door for chapped, more dried out puckers. (Am I the only one this happens too? It also happens to my cuticles.) This balm is moisturizing in just the right way - leaving my lips feeling soft and comfortable.
It's available in 16 hydrating colors and if you aren't sure which color is right for you, their website can take the guess work out with the ColorMatch tool. Although honestly, all of the colors are sheer and seem very wearable, so it would be hard to go wrong.
I think it's perfect for a quick way to keep your lips feeling lush on the go. This isn't going to do it for a night on the town, but for running errands or even going to the gym this is just right. Have you tried this? Let me know in the comments!
