YoungBlood Luminous Creme Blush
Happy belated Fourth of July!!! I hope you had a great one. One that was restful, but full of fire. :)
At the Blogger Preview Event for The Makeup Show, I received some products of YoungBlood Cosmetics.
YoungBlood Luminous Creme Blush in Taffeta
Where to purchase: studios that sell YoungBlood and online at ybskin.com
Price: $27 for 0.21 oz/ 6 g
Made in USA
Description on the back: This oil-free cream-textured blush combines a shimmering glow with sheer, long-wearing color. Can be worn as a cheek color or highlighter, or layered with powder blushes for extra color.
My initial thought was how cute! I actually liked the packaging. It's very classic, simple, sturdy, and very well made. The container is plastic, but it's thick enough to keep the cream moisturized. I've seen thin plastic containers where the cream product will eventually dry out. I don't see that happening with this product. That's a big plus for me! :) Another thing I do to keep my cream products moisturized, I actually store them upside. The moisture at the bottom of the product will be at the top. With gravity, the moisture will fall down keeping the top moisturized. If that made sense *sigh*. :X
Not only do I like the packaging and the color, the product is amazing! I have to say it's one of the best cream blush I have ever used. Since I have dry skin, the positive is that a lot of cream blushes last a long time on me. The negative is that it's hard to apply cream blushes on me. As soon as I dab a spot on me, the color is glued there. It takes a lot of rubbing and forcing it to move. This blush is so different in many ways, but in a good way! For one thing when you dip your finger into the product, you can tell it's a lot more creamier than other cream blushes I have used and trust me I have a lot of cream blushes. It's nothing I am proud of. I love my makeup collection, but I feel like I have way too much for someone who isn't an artist. :X Some other cream blushes would be dry and you have to swirl for it to get creamier. This blush is effortless. You don't need to do anything for it to get creamier. I also noticed it's as creamy as the first day I opened the packaged.
Like I said, it takes a lot of work to apply cream blushes on my dry skin. This is easy to apply and I don't see splotches. It's quick and I don't have to force my skin to move in ways it's not meant to be. One thing I love about this cream blush is that it's a product that doesn't require much effort!
When it comes to lasting a long time, I can't say it's better than other cream blushes. All blushes last a long time on me.
