Youngblood for Breast Cancer Awareness!

Leave a comment

Proceeds of select shades of Crushed Mineral Blush to be donated
Beginning October 1, 2012

I was honored when Youngblood asked me to share their new blushes for breast cancer awareness with all of you. Of course, I said yes, I’d love to share!!

Youngblood will donate to the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation a portion of its proceeds from sales of Crushed Mineral Blush in Dusty Pink, Sherbet, and Tulip.

All products made by Youngblood are without talc, oil, parabens, artificial fragrances and dyes.

Crushed Mineral Blush is highly pigmented to give cheeks and temples a natural-looking flush with buildable coverage.

I was given Dusty Pink (sweet shell pink) and Tulip (sheer baby doll pink) for review, so let’s get started on my thoughts! (Sherbet is a gold-laced pink-peach – and top-seller! I do not have this one to show you, but it sounds LOVELY.)

I tried on Tulip first, and I have to say that I was blown away because I didn’t think such a soft pink would look good on my skintone. These colors are meant to look good on ALL skintones, by the way, so I was pleased that it didn’t look silly on me. I felt that it gave me a beautiful flush, and knowing that these are for a good cause made me feel all the better!

Dusty Pink is just a tad darker, but you can barely tell the difference on me. I know that both photos look almost identical, but I promise you they are not. I do like this one better, to be honest because Tulip is just a little light for my taste, and I love the pinched cheeks look, and Dusty Pink sure gave me that effect.

And, to show you the difference between the two, I also have swatches of them both. Tulip is the top one, and Dusty Pink is the bottom one! (You may zoom in to see the clear difference!)

Proceeds of Dusty Pink, Sherbet, and Tulip will be donated beginning October 1, 2012, and are found at ybskin.com; NewBeauty at Fred Segal in Santa Monica, California; Henri Bendel in New York; select spas and salons; and by calling (800) 216-6133.

I'm a 30-something year old wife and mother. Most days, I am obsessing over makeup. Seriously, go ahead and ask the hubs. I love, love, love colors and it is something I really enjoy. I am an author (currently writing/on hiatus with my 2nd book) and here's how my love affair with makeup really started: When I was a couple months old, my Mom used to put black kohl on my eyes to ward off evil. I guess you can say I was born with the love for makeup? I really didn't trouble my Mom when it came to wearing makeup to school, and she definitely was really excited when I asked! So, I still remember, I started off with some mascara and eyeliner. I told her and I still remember my words, "I don't think I'll ever wear lipstick - it smells funny!" "Um, boy were you wrong," says my massive lipstick collection. I absolutely love colors, and I firmly believe that colors are for EVERYONE, no matter what age! So, here I am - I can't wait to share ALL my makeup and nail polish and other miscellaneous things with YOU! I've also written a novel - a philosophy, a romance, entertainment - and I'd love to share with you all about it. Check out my page here for further details. Or, you can directly go the Amazon site and support me! :) Paint the town red! Be BOLD! Make a statement! Be YOU! Don't be afraid of colors!
