CoverGirl NatureLuxe Mousse Mascara Review and Swatches

After my favorite NatureLuxe Liquid Silk Foundation, CoverGirl another member to its NatureLuxe line, NatureLuxe Mousse Mascara.

CoverGirl NatureLuxe Mousse Mascara

Boasting a mousse formula that is 20% lighter than the most expensive mascara, the NatureLuxe Mousse Mascara is made with a touch of beeswax, carnuba wax and tapioca polymers to give your lashes volume and lift. There are 4 shades to choose from, including Very Black, Black, Black Brown and Brown.

Just like Rimmel Glam’Eyes Mascara, the brush is made out of rubber and is long and slender. It reaches both my top and bottom lashes easily and the tiny bristles also do a good job separating them.

The formula itself applies really wet and takes a good minute or two to dry off completely. But once it sets, it stays on really well without smearing or flaking. It also makes my lashes look longer and more defined just like CoverGirl LashBlast Length Mascara, but with more volume and oomph.

Another thing I liked is how well it can hold a curl. The mascara does feel very lightweight and as long as I give my Asian lashes a clamp with my favorite Shiseido curler before I apply this, they will stay curled ALL day.

Bottom line, I think CoverGirl NatureLuxe Mousse Mascara is great as an everyday mascara that will give you the my-lashes-but-better look. If you like more drama like I do though, try my favorite Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara instead.

Overall Rating:

CoverGirl NatureLuxe Mousse Mascara is available at drugstores nationwide for $8.99.
