Covergirl’s Natureluxe Foundation has been on my radar for a REALLY long time. I found it quite odd that I got it before Christmas & just got around to using it 4 days ago! Before I go into it, I just want to say that I had one of the worst skin reactions I’ve ever had from a makeup product after using this.
It was all good until about 15 minutes after I’d applied it. My face started to feel warm & then it started itching. I was quite annoyed because I was actually running a bit late that day, but thought I’d better just remove it instead of leaving it on & breaking out into a full-on rash.
WELL, after I removed it, my face was BRIGHT red & had puffed up to almost double the size. It looked like my eyes weren’t even open! Luckily after about 2 hours, it went away & I didn’t have any other side effects from it.
The actual application was actually quite pleasant. I really like the squeeze tube packaging. It makes it easy to dispense & a little goes a long way with this foundation. It was a BIT pink toned, but *almost* an ideal color match (can’t really say much about oxidation, obviously) & was really easy to blend. It felt really natural & lightweight and gave a light-medium coverage, but was definitely buildable. I should say, this is definitely a satin finish. NO matte action with this I’m afraid! Good for my dry skin, but maybe not so good for combination/oily skin.
Overall, despite the horrendous reaction-I did like this foundation! I know, I know, but hear me out! If this foundation doesn’t break you out, Covergirl’s Natureluxe Foundation is an excellent option. It didn’t pick up on any of my dry patches & actually gave my skin a really natural look! If you have sensitive skin beware, but otherwise I say dive in feet first with this one!
