Natureluxe by Covergirl; My Review

Being the beauty junkie that I am, I signed up for BzzAgent .  I now have the opportunity to review various products.

My first product is Covergirl Natureluxe.  OK, now most of you know that I am a vegan and I'm all about not testing on animals, thus I had some reservations for this promotion.  After All Covergirl is owned by Proctor & Gamble, and even though Proctor & Gamble claim to be making strides to abolish animal testing it is still done.

Proctor and Gamble claims that animal testing is done as a last resort and performed humanely. Now of course I have come across sites on the Internet that beg to differ. That is, however, their claim.  Ellen Degeneres; animal activist, is said to have done research on the company before signing on as a spokesperson.

After speaking with a customer representative at Covergirl, sadly Natureluxe is most likely not vegan

Well, on with my review...

Covergirls Natureluxe boast natural ingredients such as jojoba oil, rosehip extracts, cucumber water, mango and shea butter.  The foundations is very sheer and light.  I never wear straight foundation, but rather I mixed a little foundation with moisturizer and it blended perfectly. The color I received; #330 Chamois, matched perfectly with my skin tone.    I like the sheerness and easy blend-ability of this product.

I also tried the Gloss Balm in cinnamon.  This provides a nice sheer color with and SPF of 10.  I also like to use this on my cheeks, for a blush-like effect.

Here are some interesting facts regarding Covergirl's Natureluxe line:

 3 out of 4 professional make-up artists would recommend the new
COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Collection to their clients
• 8 out of 10 professional make-up artists agree NatureLuxe Silk Foundation
provides flawless coverage and a light, luxurious feel
• 9 out of 10 make-up artists would recommend NatureLuxe Gloss Balm to
clients for a sheer color with a non-sticky, lightweight feel

Did I like the products? yes I did.  Will I buy the products? no I won't.  I personally feel that there are too many viable vegan alternatives out there that are just as good.   I look forward to continuing to present folks to vegan/cruelty free products in the future.


  1. Thanks for doing such a great job of investigating these products. I considered buying a gloss from the line, but I'd rather look for more cruelty-free alternatives. I wish companies would stop green-washing their products. Effective marketing can be done sans the misleading claims.

  2. I hear ya, I don't think BzzAgent appreciated my honest review because they hadn't contacted me since this review.

  3. Well good for you for keeping it honest. :)
