Youngblood Cosmetics review
When I was asked to do a Youngblood Cosmetics review, I literally jumped for joy. You see, I love makeup, and I love doing makeup reviews. If I could, I would underline, draw circles around, and highlight that phrase, because wow, do I love makeup.
Youngblood Cosmetics Review
That said, purchasing makeup for myself is often a struggle, because let’s face it, great cosmetics can be expensive and it’s always hard to know if you’re buying a good product. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to try some Youngblood Cosmetics this month, and from one makeup lovin’ woman to another… these products are amazing!
With so many competitors in the mineral cosmetics scene today, I really didn’t have any expectations before testing Youngblood Cosmetics. I’ve tried several names in mineral cosmetics in the past, and my results have varied from fantastic, to complete failure. The products that I tested for my review include: Natural Mineral Foundation in Warm Beige, Mineral Primer, Lipstick in Cedar and Rosewater, an Ultimate Foundation Brush, Crushed Mineral Blush Rouge, and Guava Lip Gloss.
I started with the Youngblood Cosmetics Mineral Primer, which gave my face a very silky, smooth base for the foundation. I really have found that the makeup goes on more evenly when I wear the primer.
Next was the Youngblood Cosmetics loose foundation, which I actually think was not quite the right shade for me (completely my fault, since I chose the color). What’s amazing though, is while I would probably be better suited for a neutral than a warm, the foundation still blends so beautifully on the skin that it looks great anyway. I also love that I can apply a little, for a nice soft glow, or a lot, for fuller coverage.
As the cosmetics industry continues to explore the benefits of minerals, Youngblood remains the premier choice for healthy, luxe quality mineral cosmetics. All Youngblood products are free of talc and other fillers that can clog or irritate skin. Our formulation is the very finest available, and our quality is instantly noticed the very first time our products are applied. Youngblood’s dedication to quality has earned the company an extremely loyal following. (from ybskin.com)
While I really found the primer, foundation, and blush to be great products, what I’m most impressed with from the Youngblood products that I received are the lipsticks and lip gloss. The lipstick is so creamy and smooth, and there is absolutely no hint of a chemical taste–a pet peeve of mine. The colors are rich and gorgeous, perfectly complimenting your complete Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics look.
Finally, my absolute favorite Youngblood Cosmetics product of the bunch, was the lip gloss.
I’m a big fan of the look of lip gloss, but hate that they are so often sticky or have a bad taste. Youngblood’s gloss gives your lips a splash of flirty, delicious color, but doesn’t leave them feeling sticky at all! In fact, I loved this lip gloss so much, that I asked Youngblood if they would be willing to sponsor a giveaway featuring this product, and they were more than happy to participate! Oh, and by the way, I’m wearing the Guava lip gloss in the picture above. :)
