Press Sample


The Pantone Colors of 2016 are Rose Quartz, a  pastel rose  and Serenity, a pastel blue. I love these soft pastel hues because you can wear them year round. Right now in Winter they look beautiful paired with winter white clothing. A great way to introduce the Rose Quartz shade into your makeup wardrobe is with these lovely products from Youngblood Cosmetics.

Youngblood Pressed Mineral Eyeshadow Quad in Vintage ($43) is a perfect start for a soft, muted eye. There are four complimentary shades all housed in a sleek black mirrored compact. With a silky, talc-free formula, Youngblood’s Pressed Mineral Eyeshadow Quads contain Rice Starch and Mica for smooth application and long wear and are free from perfumes and chemical dyes.

Vintage contains:

  • Blush – a medium matte pink
  • Merlot – a deep, warm matter purple plum
  • Bordeaux – a deep burgundy with slight shimmer
  • Syrah – a matte, soft dusty pink

Youngblood eyeshadows are creamy, silky smooth and pigmented though this quad is not as pigmented as the Perfect Pair Eyeshadow Duos so you will want to use an eyeshadow primer. Pink eyeshadows can be tricky but these are muted and dusty so they provide a a soft, muted eye rather than a bruised looking one. If you would rather try the Pantone color Serenity, a pastel blue, try the Youngblood Glamour Eyes Eyeshadow Quad.

Youngblood Lipstick in Pink Lust ($19) is a peachy pink frost a la Brigette Bardot. I was convinced I would hate it for two reasons: 1-frosty lipsticks don’t like me and 2- I thought it would be too pale for me. I’m so pleased I was wrong! Pink Lust has more of a metallic quality than frost and it’s very flattering on my pale lips. Youngblood lipsticks are formulated with natural ingredients such as sunflower oil and candellila wax and enriched with vitamin E to keep lips moist and protected. There are 23 vibrant colors available with finishes of sheer, metallic, pearl, cream and matte.

Youngblood Mighty Shiny Lip Gel in Revealed ($25.50) is a sheer sparkly peachy pink with slight gold shimmer. Lip Gels are new in the Youngblood line and are formulated with Momordica Grosvenorii Fruit Extract, Jojoba Seed Oil, Meadowfoam Seed Oil and Sweet Almond Oil for a nourishing, long-lasting, mirror-like finish. They feel marvelous on the lips–seriously I like to put this gloss on even when I’m just lounging around the house because they are so hydrating and long lasting. This formula is slight sticky, but not enough to bother about and that’s why they last so long. There are seven shades available each with a lovely faint vanilla scent in a squeeze tube.
