Going Pantone pastel with Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics Vintage Eyeshadow Quad and Pink Lust Lipstick


I was pleasantly suprised when I saw how light and pretty the the Pantone colors of th year were for 2016: Rose Quartz (pastel rose) and Serenity (pastel blue). They are beautiful shades that work just as well for winter as they do for summer. Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics sent me a few products that celebrate the Rose Quartz shade and I am totally loving them.

The Youngblood Pressed Mineral Eyeshadow Quad in Vintage ($43) is four shades of rose that make a perfect, classic eye look. The packaging is oh-so-chic and the eyeshadows have a smooth texture that is long-wearing. The Vintage Quad shades are:

  • Blush – a medium matte pink
  • Merlot – a deep, warm purple-plum
  • Bordeaux – a shimmery deep burgundy
  • Syrah – a soft dusty pink

I love pink eyeshadow as long as the pink isn’t too bright or too blue, and these are really perfect for some pop without looking like someone ‘popped’ you in the eye. I always use a primer and with one the eyeshadows last all day. If you are looking for some Serenity to complement your Rose Quartz, you should check out the Glamour Eyes Quad – the Stunning and Charming shades look perfect for a complete Pantone 2016 combo.

For lips, Youngblood sent me their Lipstick in Pink Lust ($19). This is a light metallic pink/peach. It is extremely pretty and wears well. It has a nice slip that is comfortable and the metallic sheen is awesome for adding some depth and the illusion of size to my thin lips. Youngblood lipsticks include ingredients like sunflower oil, candellila wax, and vitamin E so lips are soft and hyrdated. In addition to Pink Lust, there are 22 other shades that come in a range of finishes including sheer, metallic, pearl, cream and matte.

The Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics Vintage Eyeshadow Quad and Pink Lust Lipstick are great options for trying out the rose quartz side of the Pantone 2016 colors of the year – take a look, these pretty products are worth your consideration!  – Lisa

    I am getting more and more obsessed with the Pantone colors this year. I was happy with my Youngblood shadow duos so I can’t wait to try more from them eventually.

    The eye shadow quad is beautiful and the shades are subtle enough to substitute for a nude palette.

    I love the eyeshadow quad but the lipstick is very frosty–I like to put a gloss on top to tone down the frost.

    I like the quad palette too, very wearable shades

    The palette has such pretty shades. I didn’t think I’d love Rose Quartz for eyes, but it’s definitely changing my mind.

    I like that the metallic trend has made it to lipstick! So pretty. I love these types of eyeshadows – and if they’re anything like the Glamour palette, I need this one, too. So pretty.
