Product Review: Cover Girl NatureLuxe Gloss Balm, A

Ah, drugstore goodies. The situation: I had limited time, a couple bucks and a dream of a sheer lip balm. Enter Cover Girl's NaturalLuxe collection. $12 later I walked out with two shades: Grenache and Anemone.

Grenache is a creamy, pale mauve and Anemone is a vibrant coral with plenty of red undertones.
About NaturalLuxe 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.
  • Luxurious, sheer color with a hint of shine
  • Contains decadent mango and shea butter
  • Soft, lightweight feel
  • SPF 15

My review:

The Good: Yay for SPF, fun shades and affordability. The product keeps your lips soft and supple and the shades are super friendly for just about anyone. This is truly a tinted lip balm with a decent color payoff.

The Bad: Not a surprise, but this is not going to remain on your lips for long. It's a balm, yo, not a 12 hour lipstick.

The Verdict: A all the way. Total drugstore score.
