Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics Spring 2012 Luminous Creme Blush Review and Swatches

5 years ago

I`ve been pretty much living in these blushes ever since receiving them from My Beauty Bunny. Read on to find out why.

Taffeta; Tropical Glow; Rose Quartz; Champagne Life (left to right)
Can you tell I`ve used Champagne Life more often than the others? It`s the first one I tried, because the name is just fantastic. It sounds like what I would`ve captioned a photo from a high school hotel party or written CHAMP LIFE on my knuckles in Sharpie.

Swatches (same order as above)
What Youngblood says: This oil-free cream-textured blush combines a shimmering glow with sheer, long-wearing color. Can be worn as a cheek color or highlighter, or layered with powder blushes for extra color.
What I like: These shades are so bronzey and gorg for springtime. They have just the right amount of shimmer to brighten up my dull winter skin, without making me look like a disco ball. The texture is unlike anything else I`ve ever tried; think a moister (real word?) version of the Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush I was obsessed with in high school. As an added bonus, Youngblood is a cruelty free, paraben free, and vegan company.
What I don`t like: I can picture the creaminess reading as greasiness, especially on oily skin. We`ll have to wait and see how I feel about these on my combination dry-in-winter-oily-in-summer skin in a few weeks once the Florida summer is in full gear.
Overall: I believe these retail for somewhere around $30 for .21 oz (6 g) of product. To put this in perspective, Mac Cremeblend Blushes are .19 oz (5.6 g) and cost $20. So for the amount of product you`re getting, Youngblood Luminous Creme Blush is actually more cost efficient than Mac Cremeblend Blush. Do you need this? If you`re a cream blush girl, absolutely. (What are you waiting for? Go now.) If, however, you prefer powder blush, save your money. There are great powder blush drugstore options, specifically Physician`s Formula and e.l.f.
