My Take: After seeing all those Taylor Swift ads for the new NatureLuxe line, I decided to check it all out. When I saw the gloss balm, I knew it was a product I had to try it. I got it in shade 225 – anemone – a pretty red colour. I wasn’t really sure what to expect as it is called a gloss balm but comes in lipstick form. Upon application, I was extremely impressed. It had a nice smooth balmy texture, which felt moisturizing on my lips. It also had a hint of colour… Nothing too bright or solid which made it stand out too much, but just the right amount to wear to the office or during the day – and a very light glossy sheen. No sticky residue at all, minimum transfer, no funny taste. What else could you ask for? Maybe I should also mention that it has SPF 15, which is important… Your lips need sun care too! I’ve been wearing this all day, every day since I got it.
The Verdict: Definitely a product I will be using again once I run out… I know I’m going to go through the whole tube!
