Sure I could’ve cleaned up the Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics products in this picture before snapping it. But that would defeat the purpose of this beauty review…because this is must-have makeup, which means I really do use them. What you see here is Youngblood’s Hi-Definition Hydrating Mineral Perfecting Powder in Translucent (bottom), Ultimate Concealer in Medium, and Pressed Individual Eye Shadows in Orca (top) and Jewel (the teal color.)
Eye shadows: The highlighter is “Orca” and the contour “Jewel.” (On the lid you would wear more of a nude/natural color.) I have hazel eyes, so Jewel really makes my eyes pop. It also creates more of a smoky eye look, as well. I can say that at first when I saw Jewel I was nervous because I immediately had a flashback to a bad 80′s blue eye shadow experience.Â Thankfully, this teal colored shadow is gorgeous. If Youngblood’s Ultimate Concealer is applied first to your eye area, these shadows won’t crease.Â
Ultimate Concealer: This is a staple in my makeup bag. Due to the shadowing in the picture, it appears darker than it really is. It is creamy, yet seems to dry to a powdery feel on the skin. It also has buildable coverage, so whether you need light coverage under your eyes or heavy coverage on a blemish or redness, this concealer will get the job done. The best part is that it has Jojoba esters, which prevents your skin from drying out in the areas that you use it in. (Which is great especially in the winter!)
Hi-Definition Hydrating Mineral Perfecting Powder: No, this white powder won’t make you look like a clown or appear paler than you are. It simply gives you coverage like nothing I’ve seen before. I have combination skin, so shine is always a problem for me. I also have a bit of redness on each side of my nose and some wrinkles (good grief the wrinkles!) under and around my eyes. This powder not only mattifies the shine for a long stretch of time, it also diffuses imperfections so that I can look like I have perfect skin (even though I don’t…AT ALL!)
Not seen here, but deserves an honorable mention (because I carry it in my purse all of the time) is their Pressed Mineral Rice Powder (I have it in Medium). It has a super silky feel on the skin and mattifies wonderfully. I keep it on me to use for touch-ups when I’m out and about.
Do you use any of the products mentioned above (or any other makeup from Youngblood)? Let’s discuss in the comments!
