If you want the perfect pair, turn to Youngblood Cosmetics mineral eyeshadows

One of my favorite parts of the holidays are the amazing new collections and gift sets that become available. As an eyeshadow fanatic it’s a little like heaven on earth. Some eyeshadows that were released for winter 2015 (and beyond) are the YOUNGBLOOD PERFECT PAIR MINERAL EYESHADOW DUOS. There are 4 duos in total and I am the happy recipient of 3 of them.

These are the most silky soft shadows that I’ve used lately. The texture of these is extraordinary, they pick up on my brushes like a dream and apply so smoothly. Youngblood tells us that the ingredient that creates this silkiness is Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride with its antioxidant properties and skin naturing benefits. Who doesn’t want products on our faces, especially our tender eye area, that will condition and smooth our skin. That’s also why they use Lauroyl Lysine and Stevioside.

VIRTUE totally surprised me when I wore it. I was sure that the darker side (Passionate) would be too red on my eyes but it’s such a unique metallic cranberry that it’s stunning on. Pure is the matte white side. I can’t think of another matte white in my collection so it’s nice to have this shade now.

GRACEFUL also surprised me since I wouldn’t have thought to put together a cobalt blue with a coral. Azure, the cobalt shade, is a matte shade that isn’t as dark once on as it appears in the pan. Apricot is a beautiful satin light coral. Lately I’ve been loving this family for a bright lower lid look. Apricot stands out with Azure but it’s also terrific with the many neutrals and browns in your collection.

DESIRE is my favorite of the trio. I am crazy about this duo, especially the purple. Iris, is a satin that can be built up to a beautiful depth or kept soft. It’s a blue based purple which is the way I want my purples to be. Pink Rose is the softest pink with maybe a tiny touch of lavender. It looks chalky on my swatch but that’s only because I had to put so much on to have the swatch show. Once on my eyes Pink Rose is just a touch pink and complements Iris perfectly.

Just as beautiful is the CHARISMATIC DUO which consists of a matte milk chocolate and a metallic rose gold.

Don’t miss out on some of the silkiest shadows that are cruelty-free, talc free, and paraben free. You’ll love every minute of wearing them. — Marcia

    Those are the pretty swatches I’ve seen of the Youngblood duos. Half of Graceful and Desire look like the new Pantone shades. And Virtue is really gorgeous – that cranberry shade is fabulous
