I have been very eager to try the Youngblood cosmetics line. The people at Youngblood kindly sent me this set of six deluxe-sized samples of their best-selling products (thank you Crystal). The samples came in a beautiful eggplant faux-leather ostrich skin embossed makeup bag. The On-The-Go Set is a perfect way to introduce you to this mineral line that is chock full of skin healthy ingredients. The line is also cruelty and paraben free.
The On-the-Go Beauty Set (medium) contains:
- Eye Impact Quick Recovery Eye Cream
- Mineral Radiance Moisture Tint
- Mineral Radiance Moisture Tint ILLUMINATING
- Liquid Mineral Foundation
- Mineral illuminating Tint BODY
The Mineral Primer is the silkiest of primers that I have come across. If you could imagine, it’s even silkier than the Smashbox Photo Finish. The super lightweight and stunning formula disappears into the skin while rich minerals and vitamins protects skin from environmental damage. The primer helped to fill my pores, readying my skin for foundation.
Mineral Radiance Moisture Tint (warm)
The Moisture Tint hydrates skin and provides sheer coverage while protecting skin from environmental damage. The tint glides on beautifully providing moisture to the skin and producing a radiant glow. Your skin looks healthy and dewy, naturally. The Warm shade was too deep for my skin tone for this time of year but in the summer it would be perfect on top of a tan.
Mineral Radiance Tint ILLUMINATING (Golden Sun)
The Illuminating moisture tint contains a variety of skin healthy ingredients, including shea butter, coconut oil, and argan oil. The product is a liquid that gives your skin a subtle tint of illuminating warmth. I loved how this luminizer brightened up my complexion giving me a glowing and healthy look. The shimmer was very natural looking and like every other product I have tried in this set the scent was delightful.
Mineral Illuminating Tint BODY
Packed with moisturizers this tint evens out the skin on your body with a shimmering bronzed glow. This is a product I would absolutely use in the summer for radiant and smooth looking legs. I love applying shimmer to the legs, it gives the appearance of toned skin as well as adding length. I could smell the Shea and Coconut Oils more obviously on this product which is so lovely. Once set this product doesn’t budge. I only wish I had a warm vacation planned in the tropics so I could utilize this.
Liquid Mineral Foundation (Sun Kissed)
This Mineral Foundation contains a blend of “rare Reduced Salt Deep Sea Water, botanicals and more than 20 Ocean minerals to soothe and revitalize the skin” I love the ingredients in this foundation. I am pleased than while I am wearing makeup my skin is being taken care of at the same time. There is no doubt that this foundation feels wonderful on the skin. The formula is creamy and it applies beautifully with a foundation brush or a damp sponge. The coverage is light and Sun Kissed happened to be the perfect shade on me. The result was certainly radiant and glowing like everything else in the line. The foundation is virtually undetectable on the skin, its your skin but better. I absolutely love the mineral foundation and for those with drier skin this is perfect. I had some trouble with the sample packaging when the tube cracked and leaked the foundation. I also felt that the foundation didn’t have the longest wear time. Ultimately I loved it!

My overall Impression:
I had a very positive experience sampling Youngblood Cosmetics. I will undoubtedly be making future purchases. I love a natural look no-makeup look that appears luminous and this is ultimately what Youngbloods line of minerals provides. The line is in tune to my needs and want’s and each item I have sampled has been perfectly executed. The list of beneficial ingredients is only the cherry on top that makes the brand exceptional.
