Sneak Peek: Youngblood Fall 2012 - Lipstick in Blushing Nude
If you are new to my blog, then let me introduce myself... Hi, my name is Krystal and I'm addicted to bright and bold lipsticks. I own too many reds, fuchsias, pinks and oranges but I only own a small handful of nude lip colors, and I rarely ever wear them. I always feel like nude lippies make me look tired and slightly unhealthy. Now that you understand my stand-off-ish attitude towards nudes, will you believe that I have been wearing a nude lipstick every day for the past few weeks?! Yes, it's true! "In Love" and "Obsessed" don't even begin to explain my relationship with Youngblood's Lipstick in Blushing Nude, which is coming out this Fall (August to be exact) in their newest collection. When Youngblood asked me if I'd be interested in trying it - I honestly showed hesitation because I dislike nudes so much, but she mentioned that she wears and loves brights as well and she actually likes this nude shade too. So, I took a chance - and now I'm hooked!
Since I don't have any dislikes for this product, I'm just going to proceed with all my likes and loves. I like the black, sleek packaging, the secure closure, the YB logo on top of the cap and the absence of labels and lettering on the outside. Now, when I first opened this lipstick, the color stole my heart immediately. Blushing Nude is like a my-lips-but-better shade for my natural lip color. Youngblood describes it as "a muted pinkish beige with a slight sheen".
Now for my loves! I love the secret luminous effect without glitters or shimmers, I love the smooth texture when applying (tugging is never comfortable), and mostly I LOVE the hydration! It's incredible! When I said earlier that I have been wearing this every day, I really mean every day, all day long and into the night. I have been wearing this without prepping my lips with a chap stick or balm beforehand, and I have not experienced any dryness, chapping or flaking. The only time the lipstick fades is after I eat, in a full day I only need to reapply about three times. On its own, the lipstick lasts four hours or until my next meal.
The Youngblood lipsticks are $19.00 each, a pretty penny, but completely worth it! I know I'm not alone when I complain that I've wasted a lot of money on MAC lipsticks just to hate their texture or have to smother them with glosses so my lips don't crack into pieces. I'd be shocked if this lipstick lasts me through the Winter, I just can't stop wearing it!
