I must admit, I’m a terrible blogger sometimes. For example – I have been sitting on these beautiful products from Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics for months now, and I’m only getting around to writing and featuring them now. Life tends to get the best of me and I find myself consistently playing catch up on many things. But, the plus side to waiting months to write about these gorgeous cosmetics, is that I have had the chance to really try them out, test them out and really figure out how they work for me. Today I share with you a look I created using some of the products from Youngblood Cosmetics as well as swatches of the products I received. This is a brand that you may read about in the blogger realm, but it is not talked about much in the YouTube community. I’m not sure why – the products… they’re gorgeous.
Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics offers a wide range of cosmetic product from eye shadows and blush to bronzer and foundations. They are a high quality brand offering pigmented products that are luxe and gorgeous. Created and founded by Pauline Youngblood, these products were formulated to help conceal and correct imperfect complexions while offering products that would be good for the skin.
After years of working with patients who suffered from traumatized skin from harsh laser treatments, acne, rosacea and cosmetic surgeries, Pauline Youngblood decided it was time to create a line of cosmetics that were not just mineral based, but good for the skin. Youngblood provides the healthiest, highest quality products while empowering women to look and feel their best.
So let’s chit chat about some of the products I’ve been testing out and using and my thoughts on each one. I love when I can try a range of products from a brand and since I has not tried anything from Youngblood Cosmetics before, this was my opportunity to see what they had to offer.
The Pressed Mineral Eye Shadow Quad in Shanghai Nights ($43.00) comes with 4 gorgeously pigmented eye shadows and a Net Wt. of .14 oz / 4g. The four complementary shades come in a sleek and stylish mirrored compact and are perfect for your vanity or on the go. I love that each compact comes ready for a look and includes matte, pearl and shimmery finishes that blend perfectly together. There are 7 different eye shadow quads to choose from so you can easily find one that will be perfect to suit your style.
I tend to gravitate to warm shades vs cooler tones, but I really enjoyed using this palette. The shade range offered you everything from a crease and transition shade to a lid and browbone / highlight shade all in one palette. Each color feels like silk and applies easily. I especially love that they are mineral based, but they are in pressed form which make using these really easy. Used over a primer I can easily get hours of wear out of the shades – I wore them for at least 8 hours over a primer and they lasted and was as vibrant as ever. The compact is well made with a sturdy magnetic closure so this makes for a great palette for travel.
The Youngblood Cosmetics Eye-Mazing Liquid Liner Pen in Noir ($26.00 Net Wt. 0.59 mL/0.02 fl.oz.) is Vegan and a showstopper. This liner has a precision tip and offers great control and beautiful bold color in one swipe. I love a great liquid liner with a tip that will allow me to create a wing easily and this is definitely it. The liner dries quickly and stays put for hours. Even with my watery eyes, I found that I could wear this eye liner all day without smudging. I was quite impressed with its staying power and loved the precision point. But what I love the most is that creating the perfect wing was easy with this liner, it applies nicely and made my job perfection.
If you are looking for a liquid eye liner that is easy to use and control with bold color in one swipe and no streaking, I think you’ll definitely enjoy this one. I love that it’s so long wearing and perfect to create a thick or thin line.
The Intimatte Mineral Matte Lipstick in Vain ($19.00 – Net Wt. 4g. / 0.14oz) is also Vegan. I have a beautiful burgundy shade that is an absolute show stopper. I can’t wait to really get some use out of this color during the Fall and Winter months. This lip color is super-rich and provide high-impact payoff with ultra pigmentation.
This color is bold, so I would love to see how vibrant the more neutral shades are. From what I can see on the site, there are 9 shades available and all in beautiful tones from pinks and nudes to plums, corals and reds. There is a shade for everyone. Vain was absolutely comfortable on the lips. While it is a matte shade, it was very comfortable on my lips and left my lips still feeling hydrated and moisturized. The formulation on this lip color is awesome. Like with most lipsticks, they do come off with drinking or eating – but where time offered quite a few hours on its own and I love that my lips were so soft after removing it.
Youngblood Mineral Radiance in Splendor is probably one of my favorite product sin the bunch I have tried. Retailing for $43.00 (Net Wt. 9.5g / 0.335 oz.) the compact includes Vegan and Gluten Free products and is an absolutely gorgeous product. These products represent a mesh of colors that are reminiscent of a tropical vacation and used together on your face or body or individually will give you a great and wonderful glow.
Each shade in this compact is gorgeous. I love to pick out the colors I want to use and use them separately on my cheeks or as a highlight and when I’m feeling like I want to go bold and shimmery, I swirl my brush over all the shades to create a gorgeous shade. This compact is super pigmented and offers rich color with lots of great staying power. If I apply this over a primer or use on its own – I get great lasting power for hours without needing to touch up. I love blushes with a golden hue and a few of these shades have a gold sheen offering the perfect glow on my cheeks. I can build up the color for a punch of pow or lightly tap my brush into the compact for a soft summer glow.
My entire look (above) was created using the Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics I featured in this look (with exception to my eyebrows). These photos were taken with my phone (as with all of the images on my blog lately) and as you can see – the colors are soft but gorgeous. The lips are bold, but still wearable.
The wing liner in my look was done using the Eye-Mazing Liquid Liner Pen, which I absolutely LOVE. And, I am looking forward to trying out many more cosmetics from Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics. Overall – I think the quality of these products are superb and I love how they feel against the skin. I have naturally sensitive skin, dry and eczema prone so some cosmetics can really dry out my eyelids or cause my skin funky flareups. I love a product line that offers quality ingredients and great products. Yes, the price point on their products are quite high – but considering the quality and “good for your skin” feel you get when using these gorgeous products, I would buy them in a heartbeat.
I can’t wait to order and try more products from Youngblood Cosmetics. I find that I pull for this brand’s products often because I don’t have to think about what to pair with my eye shadows – I have the colors I want and need for a soft summer look without having to overthink the whole situation. If you are a blush and highlight lover like I am – I highly suggest checking out the Youngblood Mineral Radiance Compacts – they come in a few gorgeous colors for you to choose from. And, if you are looking for a great liquid liner – check out the Eye-Mazing Liquid Liner Pen. Heck, check out all of their cosmetics, I know you’ll enjoy them as much as I have.
