Review: Youngblood Holiday Glam Set

I’ve never used Youngblood make up before receiving this Holiday Glam set to review:

Youngblood Holiday Glam bag contains:

1. Vixen Lipstick (a red)

2. Truly Red Lip Liner Pencil

3. Venetian Sun Loose Blush (a light pink-gold type shade)

Its a little unusual, I guess, to review a lipstick and blush from a Mineral make up company, rather than foundation but it makes a nice change.

What I noticed about the lipstick is that it feels a little bit harder than I usually like – I like my lipsticks to be like Utterly Butterly at room temperature, but I’ve noticed this trait quite a lot in Mineral lipsticks.

In the tube it looks like a nice red – I have tons of nice reds at the moment but it really came to life once it was on the lips:

This is a great red, not overly vampy or too subtle. It also makes my lips look healthy rather than emphasizing my usually dry smackers.

Here is the blush:

On me, its more of a highlighter – its a light pink infused with gold. Its very pretty but as I said, more of a highlighter for girls with warm-dark skin.

Not a bad set for the holidays and a little slice of the brand. I’d like to try some of the base products out at some point to see if it can convert me (I am still a little cynical towards mineral make up – I just hate overly powdery finishes on the skin).

You can buy it here for £38 or if you are in the US, for a rather better value $39 here.

    I really think you should try Julie Hewett’s Rouge Noir lipstick; it’s similar in color to Vixen and I think you’d like it. I can try to have a review up in the next few days, if it’ll help.

      Do you know Lucky, I have only ever tried one Julie Hewett palette. Its was soooo expensive because of the mark up, but show me! show me

    Oooo…Which palette was it? Was it an eyeshadow palette or one of the combo-palettes, replete with creme blush, creme liner and the like?

    I’ve really only tried the eyeshadows and lipsticks so far; my assessment for both products is relatively good (providing you manage to find a flattering shade), but as JHLA seems to have changed the formulation of many of its products without so much as a whisper on its website, I’ve now decided to reserve my judgment until I’ve received a response from the company itself. The one good thing about Youngblood is that the product ingredients are listed right on the website. :-/
