Youngblood Lipstick in Dragon Fruit from the Summer 2013 Collection – swatches & review

As part of their Summer 2013 Collection, Youngblood has released a new lipstick shade, Dragon Fruit. The collection also includes a new Mighty Shiny Lip Gel as well as a completely new product called Maxim-Eyes, a natural eyelash restorative serum.

yb-summer-2013-dragon-fruit-1Dragon Fruit is moisture-rich and intensly hydrating. It contains moisturizing botanicals, including Sunflower oil and Candelilla Wax as well as Vitamin E to help condition lips. The slick formula glides on with ease providing a sheer wash of color and layers well for more intensity. Those with lips prone to dryness will adore this formula.

The shade Dragon Fruit is a bright pink with a high-shine finish. The wear time is excellent, especially considering the lipstick is a hydrating formula. The lipstick has no detectable scent. Dragon Fruit appears to contain some warmer tones on my arm and leans more of a cooler bright-pink on my lips. The images of me wearing the lipstick is a more accurate read. As compared to another moisturizing lipstick in my collection, the Dior Addict Extreme, Dragon Fruit is a slicker formula with more color intensity. I also find the Youngblood formula more moisturizing than the Dior.

Dragon Fruit is a gorgeous shade for summer. As much as I love the shade I am even more in love with the formula. This bright-pink also looks perfect paired underneath the new Mighty Shine Lip Gel in New Flaunt (review soon).

  19. Taylor, this is such a gorgeous color! Definitely very summery. Can’t wait to try this out. We’re a little bit behind here for some reason, but hopefully mine will arrive soon. It really suits you btw 🙂 x

    Looks stunning on you, never heard of young blood before. Will check them out 🙂

  21. Denise B. says:

    I wish Dragon Fruit were the glorious, vibrant shade of pink on me that it is on you. I’m pale/cool toned, and the lipstick is a deeper red. The lipstick arrived on a warm day, and I opened the tube to find the lipstick cracked in half. I like the formula, but wish that it were less susceptible to breakage. This was my first experience with YoungBlood and am uncertain if I would try another product in the line.
