CoverGirl NatureLuxe Liquid Silk Foundation Review and Swatches

With a blend of cucumber water, natural jojoba and rosehips extract, CoverGirl NatureLuxe Silk Foundation promises to deliver a polished look for all skin types.

The foundation comes with a very nice fresh scent, just like cucumbers. There are 14 light-to-dark shades available, most of which are on the pinkish/neutral side. I have the lightest shade, 305 Alabaster, which is very similar to MAC NW15/NW20.

Unlike your regular foundation, the NatureLuxe resembles more of a tinted moisturizer. It feels very hydrating and has a creamier texture like my favorite Skin Food BB Creams. It also goes on very lightweight and applies smoothly on my combination skin without highlighting flakes or creating shine.

Although the color I got is at least a shade or two lighter than my skin tone, the foundation blends in surprisingly well without making me look like a ghost. It also does a good job evening out my skin but on certain areas that require extra coverage (like under the eyes), I will still need a concealer on top.

As for the finish, it is indeed very silky. I also love that it is neither dewy nor matte and looks really natural, like I am not wearing anything at all.

Overall, the NatureLuxe Silk Foundation is a good product for everyday use, especially if you are looking for a natural look. Would definitely love to see more shades for yellow and olive skin tones.

  1. yess NW15 is my shade, so this sounds like it would be a good match. Thanks for the review :) I’ve been wondering about this ever since I saw the promo pics w/ Taylor Swift.

    • It doesn’t say non-comedogenic on the tube but I personally don’t have a problem with it clogging my pores.

    • Yes but I wouldn’t recommend it since the foundation is already on the sheer side and using a sponge/puff will only soak up the product even more.
