Youngblood Luminous Creme Blush in Pink Cashmere – swatches & review

Powder blushes? Meh, not happening, at least not for now with the incredible heat and humidity we have been experiencing. The idea of a powder product being applied to dampened (sweaty) skin doesn’t seem like the wise thing to do, athough it does sounds like the right recipe for concocting some sort of paste

So, in come the cream blush variety. In the market for a new one, with the Chanel Le Blush Creme in mind, I just so happened upon a Youngblood display at a local boutique. It was a serendipitous moment as the Luminous Creme Blushes was a product I have been wanting to try for a very long time. Upon sampling Pink Cashmere, I purchased it instantly, it was exactly what I was in search of.

The Youngblood Luminous Crème Blush is a creamy textured blush with a sheer finish. The oil-free formula can be used as a blush, highlighter, or layered for ‘extra-vibrancy’. The blush is packaged in a clear plastic pot with a black twist-off lid, similar to the Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge. Youngblood suggests to apply using your fingertips. This technique works perfectly to apply the formula which spreads with ease.

The shade Pink Cashmere is a coral-pink and has a satin finish. The blush is highly pigmented and will brighten your complexion with the tiniest amount of product. The texture is just the right amount of creamy to make application incredibly easy, while it sets to a powder-finish. It is actually quite similar to the new Chanel cream blushes, but slighty more creamy and a bit easier to blend. The product blends beautifully into the skin mimicking its texture, while delivering a flattering amount of natural looking radiance. The blush lasted incredibly well throughout the day and through all of the sweat and ick. Youngblood Creme Blush is exactly what I have been looking for!

    You make such a convincing case of everything, Taylor! Gorgeous! I just got a Dior cream blush. I’ve been really liking cream formulas this summer, too – more than last summer! Too hot!

    Oh Taylor, I really don’t need another coral/coral pink, but the second I laid my eyes on this one I knew I need it! I have been using mainly cream blushes as well, including LMdB Coral Nymph, Dior Bikini, and Dior Capri. I don’t know why I associate cream blushes with summer because they really should be good all year round!

  8. Haha yeah powder blushes aren’t happening for me right now either. Of course the last thing I need is another pink cream blush BUT… what can I say? This is just gorgeous

  12. Oh, I was just looking at the Youngblood range the other day but we don’t get this cream blush yet. I LOVE cream blushes and this colour looks gorgeous on you 🙂

  13. Gorgeous! I love cream blushes, but I find they slip off my cheeks during the warmer months.

  14. Tiffany says:

    Ooo, this blush looks lovely on you! I’m definitely a fan of cream blushes, especially in the past year or so. I love the new Chanel formula, Illamasqua’s formula, and the Stila Convertible Colors to name a few!

  15. Hi there! Love this, but what really stood out to me is the gorgeous colour on your lips…what is it? Must have it!
