Youngblood Cosmetics | Swatches and First Impressions

About Youngblood:
Founded by paramedical aesthetician Pauline Youngblood, Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics is now a complete line, offering dozens of products in a comprehensive palette of shades with realistic skin tones and beautiful, natural finishes. Youngblood creates top-quality products that are innovative in both formulation and packaging.

I recently received a package from Youngblood Cosmetics; a little something for the lips, eyes, cheeks, and face. I'll be doing a review of each product soon but to hold you over, here are a few swatches and my first impressions.

--Lipstick in Tangelo: Totally crazy about this lipstick; the color is gorgeous and the feel of the product is perfection. Not too heavy and very moisturizing.
--Lipgloss in Rhapsody: Loving this formula; not overly sticky but wears incredibly well. Though the plumping is faint for me, I do like how my lips didn't become irritated.

--Pressed Mineral Eyeshadow Quad in Mermaid: Nicely pigmented and very blendable; I do wish that there were more variation in this quad's blues. A deep blue or navy would have made me fall in love with it.

--Luminous Creme Blush in Rose Quartz: Absolutely lovely; Gives that highly-sought-after glow to the skin. It is a creme blush so I'm certain I'll have to layer a powder over it.

--Mineral Radiance Creme Powder Foundation in Tawnee: I was very pleasantly surprised with this foundation. The coverage is fabulous yet it looks natural. I'm curious to see how this wears on my oily skin.

Have you tried Youngblood Cosmetics? What do you think of the products I showed here?

I think Pink Peasrl from the quad is really beautiful. The other products are nice too but that eyeshadow really stands out for me becausde of the pretty shimmer.
