I recently received some make up products from a brand I'd never tried before Youngblood Mineral Cosemetics, Youngblood is an award winning premium luxury mineral cosmetics brand from California which is available from Beauty Expert one of my favourite places to buy beauty products online. Youngblood products are paraben, talc, oil, fragrance and cruelty free and their packaging is made from recyclable materials, I really liked the packing it is sleek and classy and not fussy at all it looks simple and elegant. I'd never tried mineral make up before so was really excited to try the products from Youngblood, the first product I tried was the Pressed Mineral Eyeshadow Quad In Timeless.
The quad is made up of four rich shadows in a sleek compact complete with a nice sized mirror which is big enough when applying make up, there is a lovely mix of shades that all work well when worn both together or alone. I love neutral shades and as soon as I opened the palette I knew the shades were definite "Zoe shades" they all looked beautiful and I couldn't wait to try them and I have used all four shades in many different ways since I've had the palette.
✿ Doe - Doe is a lovely pale cream shade with a slight peach undertone and one that is a perfect shade for both all over the lid or as a inner corner/brow bone highlight, unfortunately pale shades never swatch well but you can hopefully still see the shade on the photographs above.
✿ Coco - Coco is an ideal transitional shade and again beautiful, I have used it has both a transitional shade and also worn it alone all over the lid and blended up towards my crease and then blended under my lower lash line with a little of the Doe in my inner corners it's a simple but lovely look.
✿ Haze - I think Haze might be my favourite shade of the palette it is a gorgeous taupe shade and one I use to deepen the crease or I use it wet along my upper lash line and feathered through my upper lashes. Haze also looks beautiful worn alone and blended out up towards the crease it has a lovely satin finish to it and isn't too shimmery but has a bit of something if mattes aren't your thing.
✿ Desert - Desert is an amazing shimmery shade and one that makes my eyes look incredibly blue, again it looks beautiful worn alone or with other shades too, I like to wear Desert either alone and blended up to my crease and then blended under my lower lash line or all over my lid with Haze to deepen the crease and Doe to brighten the inner corners of my eyes.
All the shades are absolutely stunning and I love them all, it's hard to choose a favourite but I do think if I had to choose it would be Haze or maybe Desert, but all the shades are beautiful, I find that I never normally love all the shades in a palette or quad and there's always one shade I don't use/like but that really isn't the case with the Youngblood quad as I love all the shades and use them all. The quality of the shadows is fantastic they apply beautifully and blend brilliantly too, they are extremely pigmented and feel so soft and silky, they have fantastic wear time and after wearing the shadows for over 12 hours my make up still looked the same as it did when I'd applied it, the shadows don't crease which for me is amazing because everything creases on me and I need to use an eye primer with everything but I wanted to test the shadows properly so I have tried them with and without primer and they didn't crease without primer which is unheard of for me.
Timeless is a stunning quad with a beautiful mix of neutral shades that compliment each other fantastically and can all be worn alone or together and used wet or dry, I would highly recommend the quad, I love the packaging and I love the product it really is a stunning quad and the shadows are incredible quality, if like me neutrals are your thing, you will absolutely love it.
You can find the Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics Pressed Mineral Eyeshadow Quad on the Beauty Expert website for £33.00.
