I love colored mascara so when I had a chance to try out Youngblood Outrageous Lashes Mineral Lengthening Mascara in new cobalt blue, I jumped. Although one of the “rules” of makeup is that if you have blue eyes, you should avoid blue eye makeup. Well, I beg to differ. Blue eye makeup, especially eyeliner and mascara, enhances my blue eyes IMHO.
Although I’ve been familiar with the name, Youngblood was a new brand for me. It’s a mineral makeup brand, natural, talc-free, and cruelty-free. Take a look at Youngblood’s website to learn more about their product line.
I have a cobalt blue sweater that I love, and I sort of expected the mascara to be bright blue.
Sometimes bright blue mascara can be a little glaring. Fortunately, Youngblood Lengthening Mascara’s cobalt blue is actually a medium blue, almost a navy blue, and it isn’t jarring at all.
The blue lashes effect isn’t in-your-face. In fact, one of my friend’s complicated me yesterday on my “blue eyeliner” because when I applied it to my lower lashes, it provided a nice liner-like look.
Youngblood mascara is billed as a “lengthening” mascara, but I did find that it gave my lashes enough volume as well to be considered “an all-around mascara”.
It has a traditional wand, and it’s easy to apply.
No flaking, no clumping, smudge-proof, long-wearing. Here’s what it looks like on me!
Youngblood Outrageous Lashes Lengthening Mineral Mascara is formulated with L-Arginine, an essential amino acid that moisturizes and strengthens, Panthenol, a B vitamin that keeps lashes flexible and hydrating Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice. The mascara is also free from perfumes and chemical dyes. Youngblood also makes mascara in Blackout (black) and Mink, (rich brown), but I’m not sure if it’s exactly the same formula.
Youngblood Outrageous Lashes Lengthening Mascara is made in the U.S. Youngblood Cosmetics are sold on a variety of online retailers including lovelyskin.com, skintrends.com, among many others. It’s available in the US, Canada, Australia, and other countries worldwide. It is also sold in select salons. I was amazed to discover that a salon less than 10 miles from my home carries Youngblood! Here’s a link to the Youngblood mascara in cobalt that’s new for Holiday 2015.
So do you wear colored mascara? What’s your favorite shade?
