Review of CoverGirl New Natureluxe Silk Foundation

CoverGirl Natureluxe Foundation: Lots of Coverage Without the Cakiness

It seems like Taylor Swift, the spokeswoman for CoverGirl's new Natureluxe line, has been everywhere these days. And her skin does look pretty amazing in those ads, no? While Taylor is a young 21-year-old, and she has the help of makeup artists and special lighting to give her flawless looking skin, I couldn't help but wonder just how great that new Natureluxe Silk Foundation ($12) really is. To see what I thought, just keep reading.

Of the 14 colors available, I tried Alabaster, the lightest shade. At first I thought it might be a little too light for my skin tone, but it ended up being a pretty decent — but not exact — match. I probably could have used a slightly darker, warmer shade, but the Alabaster was neither ashy or mask-like. This foundation definitely has a strong cucumber smell when you first put it on (it's formulated with cucumber water, rose hip, and jojoba extracts), but the scent fades away after a while.

A cross between a tinted moisturizer and a thick and creamy consistency, Natureluxe blends in smoothly, taking a minute or two to set into the skin. But once it settles, you'll get medium-to-full coverage with a semimatte finish. Also, after a full day of wear, I also had minimal caking and fading. And that's exactly the reason I like this reasonably-priced foundation so much; it allows your skin to still shine through without that flatness that many fuller-coverage foundations provide.

I've never heard anyone call these full-coverage! All the reviews I've read have said medium or light-to-medium coverage. Maybe I'll try these out afterall; but it's going to be a pain to figure out what shade to get :/

Good way of putting it, Marbegirl. It is kind of like a powerful tinted moisturizer.

Well what Swift look like in her ads is irrelevant. Whether the product works or not she's going to be airbrushed like everyone else. However I can attest to the fact that this is an excellent foundation,, it like a medium coverage tinted moisturizer, which sounds like an oxymoron.

She's not wearing 50 pounds of paint on her face! I met her in person and she was naturally beautiful - you can tell that's her real skin shining through. Not to mention she's the sweetest girl ever. You may not like her music/style/makeup choices, but there's no denying that she's a beautiful and sweet girl!
