CoverGirl's New NatureLuxe Foundation and Gloss Balm

Images from

The latest BzzCampaign I signed up for was the CoverGirl NatureLuxe campaign! BzzAgent sent me the products to try out and give my honest opinion to friends and family. So that is what I'm going to do! (: This new line of products from CoverGirl is really clever. I love how they are showing that they use natural items in their products so it is actually good for you!

Liquid Silk Foundation:
I would rate this product 3 out of 5 stars on my terms.

1 star: for doing what it is intende in covering my blemishes and evening out my skin tone
1 star: for the creaminess and ease of application. Went on really smooth!
1 star: for using jojoba, cucumber extract, and other natural ingredients! Woohoo!
Minus 1 star: for being too heavy for my oily skin
Minus 1 star: for being the wrong color - technically MY fault but yeah.

Gloss Balm:
I would rate this product 5 out of 5 stars!

1 star: for being glossy with being sticky!
1 star: for being available in 16 shades!
1 star: for having SPF 15 in it. I love that about lip products, it is great for the Spring and Summer!
1 star: for being sheer but giving just enough tinge of color to make your lips look luscious!
1 star: for being super moisturizing and smelling good!

Definitely check out the gloss balm if anything, it is a must have for any purse (:

The Home Stretch!

Just a few more weeks and it will be summer break once again! It makes me wonder how I survived high school, which didn't get out until near the end of June! This coming break is going to be EXTRA exciting though because the first week I'm done with school is my 21st birthday!!! I've definitely been waiting for this day to come for a long time. It seems there is always some kind of age limit for everything up until you are 21. I'm going to have a fun birthday week that is for certain.

With the last few weeks of classes comes 50 tons of stress as well though! I'm going to think of ways to try and beat the stress and I'll make a new blog post or video about them soon. (:

For now, leave your best stress-busting tips below and I might mention you in my next blog or video!
