CoverGirl products were buy one get one half off at Wags, so I took my coupon for $5 off any two CG Natureluxe foundations and stacked it with the sale along with my two $4 register rewards. I literally paid next to nothing for these! Was especially curious about these because cutie-patootie Taylor Swift is the spokesmodel for this brand.
left: #340 Maple, right #350 OakI have found it easier to buy two different shades when products are on sale and custom mix my own shade than try to match myself. lol. These come in a squeeze bottle with a twist off cap and are infused with jojoba, rose hips and cucumber extract. I don't really pick up a scent from it when I used it- it just smells clean. Not bothersome to me.
Anyways, I wore this foundation yesterday for the first time and I have mixed feelings. The foundation itself is very creamy and consistent. I used my Elf stipple brush to apply this instead of a sponge. This foundation only offered me medium coverage. I could still see some acne marks and scars so I went back in with my concealer and touched up those areas. Also did a light dusting with my translucent powder from Rimmel to set everything.
Here I am, wearing CoverGirl NatureLuxe foundation in #350, Oak. Originally thought that this might be too dark but I have gotten some sun and the shade now works for me.
So what did I not like? How it actually felt on my face- slick, tacky to the touch, and greasy. A couple of hours into the wear, I noticed oil accentuation around my t-zone. I applied another light dusting of the translucent powder to counter this and blotted with 2 oil sheets. But, much to my dismay, I noticed another greasy t-zone while shopping later that day. I hate that. :/
I find that most liquid foundations don't do anything for me and I am very sad that these were a miss as well. These would probably work better for someone who is looking for fair to medium coverage and doesn't have problematic skin, i.e. scars, acne and/or oiliness. Not for me.
