September Product Feature-Lip Kit

Ultra-hydrating retractable lip crayon packed with intense color. Combining convenience and smooth application, these pigment-rich, long wearing lip colors provide a creamy yet definitive matte finish. Enriched with emollients, Vitamin E and a hint of diamonds, each gorgeous shade glides on and stays put for hours. No sharpening required.

“This is the best lip crayon I’ve ever tried (and I’ve tried a LOT of crayons, from indie to high end brands). The color (Hollywood Nights) is a perfect mauve brown, neither too pink nor too muddy. The texture is also creamy and smooth, very light and yet still long lasting. It’s also very well pigmented so doesn’t require a ton of swipes to get color. I can’t praise it enough!

How cute is this little purse in red, pink or purple? FREE when you get a Lip Liner and Color-cray! $33

Youngblood Lips: June Product Feature 2013

Liips-Product-Category-Header

Kelli JuneHi! It’s Kelli, bringing you this month’s Product Feature.

With spring in full bloom, it’s no wonder we’re all feeling inspired to feel fresh and look pretty! Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics’ lip products are a simple way to update your look without having to put a lot of extra effort into your appearance.

6_18My personal favorite is the lipstick color Rosewater, the newest pink hue we carry at the spa. It’s beautiful and a happy medium between sophisticated and young. I’ve noticed a lot of brides leaning toward the softer pink tones, and this one photographs perfectly!

lip-liner-pencil_2The Brow Boss loves to show off perfect brows with the right lip-treatment. Her top choice for the longest-wearing lip color is the Lip Pencils. The technique involves completely filling in the lips and then applying Mineral-based Lipstick or Luminous Creme Blush over the pencil. Her favorite color is Blushing Nude, a nice blend of classic and modern that can be worn for any occasion.

We both love playing around with our Youngblood lip products to customize the color for every age, comfort level, and skin tone. The possibilities are endless.

And with the Double Rewards you get for purchasing our Monthly Product Feature, you are one step closer to adding on an amazing treatment Enhancement to your next appointment while looking stunning! 02.24.2012b580e_lipgloss (1)

Give Me Some Lip!

ybskinTry this DIY Lip Treatment!

But first, do a mini teeth-whitening by swooshing with some hydrogen peroxide in your mouth and brushing with baking soda.

Step 1: Prepare a mixture of some, or all, of the following:

  • Course ground coffee
  • Brown/white sugar
  • Honey
  • Vanilla
  • Maple surup
  • Olive oil
  • Powdered cocoa

Step 2: Use your finger and gently smooth the mixture on your lips in little light circles for a minute or two

Pop it in the fridge to use again, but be sure you use a clean spoon, and not your fingers, to get it out.

I’m not a fan of petroleum based chapsticks and balms, so after your lips are super-smooth I love these: Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics’ Lipstick, Mighty Shiny Lip Gel, Lip Gloss, and Lip Liners and OSEA Eyes and Lips.

See you at the spa!

Youngblood Review: Luminous Creme Blush

Cream Blush ReviewYoungblood has asked me to review their Luminous Creme Blush. Since I’ve professionally and personally been using it since this past summer, I happily said YES!

What’s not to love about this cream-textured blush that combines a shimmering glow with sheer, long-wearing color?  Let me count the ways:

1. Oil-Free

2. Contains healthy, skin-beautifying ingredients:

  • Vitamins C & E – to fight against oxidative stress
  • Allantoin – a moisturizing botanical and anti-irritant
  • Jojoba Esters – an emollient

3. Accentuates bone structure – It illuminates the cheekbone, catching and reflecting light. Most 20-somethings can use it alone, but I like to use it as a base for a powdered blush or bronzer for more color and depth.

4. Seals in lip color – I like my lip treatment to be long-lasting, so I use Lip Liner Pencil with Luminous Creme Blush over it. It stays and stays! I keep a little pot of it in my makeup bag for quick color touch-ups for cheeks and lips.

5. Comes in six luxurious shades – We carry it in Rose Quartz, Tropical Glow and Plum Satin, but it can be ordered in Champagne Life, Taffeta, and Pink Cashmere. .21 oz $26 (price subject to change).

See you at the spa!

Felicia’s Fabulous Finds: Crushed Mineral Eye Shadow

Hi, it’s Felicia again, guest blogger at Star Brows! Are you tired of boring, neutral, everyday makeup? Do your eye shadow options go from beige to brown, and that’s about it? Do you want to spice up your look for work or school without feeling like a clown? And like me, are you concerned about using chemicals on your skin? Well look no further! The ingenious makers of Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics have come up with 100% crushed minerals and highly pigmented eye shadows in a myriad of fun, but classic colors.

I had the pleasure of working with the shade Heather Smoke. It has a lovely satin finish, which makes the color muted enough for daytime, but it can be layered for more intensity or used wet for as much drama as you need.

I love that it isn’t packed with synthetic fillers and chemicals like over-the-counter brands. And ingredients like honeysuckle flower extract and jojoba seed extract make it gentle on the eye area. In fact, when I look at the Youngblood company page, each product listed has a set of attributes. For instance, this formula is fragrance free, water resistant, oil free, vegan (made without animal by-products), and paraben free.

I’d describe Heather Smoke as a rich satiny violet. This color looks great washed over your lids, which helps brighten the eye and makes you look more awake.  I usually use a primer under my shadow, however when I swatched Heather Smoke with a couple of other purples for comparison, it stayed on so well, even after I rubbed off the others. So, Yb Shadow may make me reconsider this step!

Try this look:

Apply it with a small, flat shadow brush across your lids and the inner corner of your eye.

Follow up with a matte brown shade blended into the crease.

Add a hint of white under your brows as a highlight.

Next, apply your choice of black or dark brown liner. (If you really want to mix it up, hunter green looks really flattering with Heather Smoke on hazel and brown eyes.)

Finish the look with some black mascara, a light dusting of blush and bronzer to keep up your fresh glow, and a quick swipe of pink gloss on the lips.

This gives you a fun, fresh look for everyday without going over the top.

Transform this look to evening:

Apply the shadow wet for more drama across the lids and up into the crease

Deepen the outer corners a little more with a matte brown

A nude lip goes really well with this look, and with an extra coat of black mascara, you will be ready for a night out! So there you have it – a fun flattering shade for both day and night that goes on smooth and lasts until you are ready to take it off.

Obsessed with makeup! Felicia

 

Luminous Creme Blush

LUMINOUS CRÈME BLUSH

Recently Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics  sent me their Luminous Creme Blush to review in a new color set to launch this summer. I had been using the new blush in Rose Quartz, a silvery petal-pink which I love, but it’s a little “young”  for the over-40’s.

One of the new colors, Plum Satin, which is a rose-berry with a hint of shimmer, is perfect for that crowd, less shimmery and deeper in pigment. I’ve been using it on everyone I see at the makeup studio!

On the cheeks, I personally wear it over the awesome bronzer, Mineral Illuminating Tint – Body, or under Crushed Mineral Blush in the color Plumberry. I am pretty pale, and I wash out easily, so layering color is great.

And here’s my favorite part: I like it over Youngblood’s  Lip Liner Pencils (which I apply to the entire lip) for super long-lasting color!

Jojoba Esters, the skin-healing and moisture-binding  effects of Allantoin, and their trademark mineral elements make this formulation oh-so-fine!

See you at the spa!
