Sneak Peek: Youngblood 2012 Summer Collection

So excited to share a sneak peek of Youngblood’s 2012 Summer Collection! Available June 1, 2012.

Luminous Creme Blush ($27)

“The cream -textured blush combines a shimmering glow with sheer, long-wearing color. It can be worn as a cheek color or highlighter, or layered with powder blushes for extra color. Oil free formula contains: Vitamins C and E (nourishing) , allantoin (moisturizing botanical), and jojoba esters (emollient).”

I like these 2 blushes A LOT. It’s great for everyday wear because they’re shimmer free. Same great creme formula and color payoff. Plus, they’re fragrance and cruelty free! Perfection.

Luminous Creme Blush ($27) :  Summer 2012 Collection. Plum Satin (rose berry shade with a hint of shimmer) and Pink Cashmere (a lively, matte carnation pink).
TOP ROW: Summer 2012 Collection. BOTTOM ROW: Spring 2012 Collection.

BOTTOM ROW: Spring 2012 Collection.  Champagne Life (bubbly taupe with shimmer), Tropical Glow (peachy pink with gold shimmer), and Rose Quartz (silvery petal pink).

Mighty Shiny Lip Gel ($25.50)

“High shine, sheer color and a light vanilla scent are a triple treat for lips with Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics’ new Mighty Shiny Lip Gel! The naturally nourishing formula provides a long-lasting, glistening effect while remaining petroleum-, fragrance-, mineral oil-, and cruelty -free!”

Here’s why I love these lip gels:
1. Not sticky, but long lasting.
2. Fragrance free- YB states that there’s a light vanilla scent… but I can’t smell it.
3. Sheer color and a lot of shine.
4. Moisturizing without all the yucky ingredients (listed above)
5. Cruelty Free (hooray)
6. Love the minimal packaging. Not a lot of waste, and I love the fact that I can clean/wipe the soft rubber applicator tip whenever needed.

Mighty Shiny Lip Gel ($25)

Applicator tip. Nice because you can wipe it clean without wasting any product!

4 of the lip gels have shimmer (Revealed, Stripped, Unveiled, and Displayed)  and the other 3 are shimmer free (Confessed, Exposed, and Bared). My personal favorite is Bared.

Mighty Shiny Lip Gel Swatches: Revealed (peach-pink with gold shimmer), Confessed (watermelon-red), Stripped (clear with iridescent shimmer), Exposed (sheer grape), Unveiled (shimmery bright pink), Bared (soft peach), Displayed (orange-red with gold shimmer).

Youngblood is available at, NewBeauty at Fred Segal (Santa Monica, CA), Henri Bendel (New York), and select spas and salons. I hope you’re able to check out these awesome products. Be sure to check out the lip gels! I heart them.

Until next time, stay pretty… inside and out.

    I love the blushes swatch. I am not really a fan of the glosses as it’s not that pigmented.
