Review: Covergirl Natureluxe Lip Balm

By Beauteandtheblog
Hello everyone!
Lately, I've been on something of a drugstore lip balm/lip color kick. It's getting cooler around here, and I generally don't like to wear glosses in the winter (the wind blows the hair and it goes right into the lipgloss..yuck). So even though I just did a review of Milani's HD Lip Color, here's another for you!
Today's review is on Covergirl's Natureluxe Lip balm, specifically in the shade Sandstone.

Sandstone is a light bright pink with flakes of glitter.
Lately I've been loving tinted lip balms for winter - moisturizing, but you still get that nice color. These Natureluxe Lip balms aren't my favorite, but they're not terrible either.
I love that it has SPF 15; SPF is still essential even during the winter, so I love it when makeup products include it. It applies really smoothly, and even with the glitter, it feels smooth on the lips. There's a fair amount of pigmentation and it gives a really nice shine.
The problem is, I'm not a huge fan of the glitter. While it does look nice freshly applied, after a couple hours when the actual color and balm fade, all you're left with on your lips is ..flakes of glitter. And it's not flattering at all. If I don't check on it every couple hours, my lips look like they're sugar coated.
With that being said, it's not a huge issue just as long as you touch up, or just use it for quick errands or something. To me lip balms aren't supposed to be extra long wearing anyways.
I believe some of the other shades are just cream shades, so I might pick some of those up. You can buy these at any drugstore for about $7-8. 
Let me know if you've tried any of the colors!
