Youngblood Summer 2012: Luminous Creme Blush and Mighty Shiny Lip Gel review and swatches

Youngblood Cosmetics has some great new colors and products for summer that make their debut June 1st.  Here’s a sneak peek at a few items that will become available – Marcia will have more colors and swatches in a few days.

Speaking of marvelous Marcia, she absolutely raves about the Luminous Creme Blush ($27), read her review HERE.  There are two new colors in the summer collection, Plum Satin and Pink Cashmere.  I tried the Plum Satin.

Youngblood Plum Satin Blush

This is SUCH a beautiful color!!  It’s a sort of berry/rose/pink, with teensy shimmers that translate into ‘glow-from-within’.  I typically use my fingers to apply, or else my Sonia Kashuk flat top blush brush.

The formula is oil-free, and it also has Allantain which is a moisturizer and an anti-irritant, as well as Jojoba Esters, which makes the blush nicely emollient.

The texture is creamy but not sticky, and it imparts a gorgeous, natural looking luminosity.  I love it!

 A brand new product that will also be introduced on June 1st is the Mighty Shine Lip Gel ($25.50).  The lip gels are free of petroleum, fragrance, and mineral oil, and are also cruelty-free.

Youngblood Mighty Shine Lip Gels - all the new colors

There are seven shades available:  Confessed, watermelon red; Exposed, sheer grape; Revealed, peach-pink with gold shimmer; Stripped, clear with iridescent shimmer; Bared, sheer peach; Displayed, sheer orange-red with gold shimmer; and Unveiled, sheer shimmery pink.  I tried Confessed and Stripped.

Confessed and Stripped (wow what a combination of names!!)

 Confessed is on top, Stripped is on the bottom.  I adore the texture of these – it’s a thick gel that imparts huge shine, but it isn’t sticky!  The feel is very emollient, which I like.  I hate for my lips to feel dry, and this formula keeps them feeling very ‘glossed’, plus it lasts far longer than I had even hoped.

lip gel applicator – pretty cool!

 I really love the applicator.  You squeeze the tube and the gel comes out the tip,which is a lot more sanitary than a pot of gloss.  The formula is full of great ingredients that are terrific for your lips:  Momordica Grosvenorii Fruit Extract to fight free radicals, Jojoba Seed Oil which is an emollient source of Vitamin E, Meadowfoam Seed Oil as a conditioning agent, and Sweet Almond Oil which has Vitamin D and softens skin.

Confessed swatch

Confessed is an extremely wearable watermelon-red.  It’s quite sheer, but it still imparts some color.  There isn’t any shimmer in this, but it’s so super shiny who needs shimmer??  It looks great by itself, and is also a fantastic choice for over a lip liner.

Stripped swatch

 Stripped is clear with iridescent shimmers.  It’s so beautiful, pictures just don’t do this justice.  If you have pigmented lips (which I don’t) this is great on its own.  And it’s also the perfect complement to any lip liner or matte lipstick.

Youngblood summer colors FOD

I am very impressed with both the cream blush and the lip gels (pictured above I am wearing the Plum Satin Blush and Confessed Mighty Shine Lip Gel).  The products are fabulous, and the colors I tried are wonderful.  I think I NEED Revealed Mighty Shine Lip Gel (peach-pink with gold shimmer) and  Displayed Mighty Shine Lip Gel (sheer orange-red with gold shimmer), so I will definitely be doing some shopping on June 1st.  – Lisa
