Mist, Set & Glow with Youngblood

Mist, Set & Glow with Youngblood::: press sample :::

I am feeling very unorganized today... I have two posts waiting to go live for your reading pleasure, but I obviously didn't plan very well as I don't have approval to post either of them just yet. Of course one of the two was meant to go up today. But you don't really care about all that, you're here for the products. They're definitely good ones, so I guess everything worked out. Read on for a look at some Youngblood bits to see you misted, set, and perfectly glowy.


Youngblood Minerals in the Mist Relax

Hi, I'm Bailey, and I'm a mist addict. It's true. I love a good facial mist. That's why I was really excited to give the Minerals in the Mist a try. Let's take a moment to appreciate the punny name... That's enough. Available in four different varieties- Relax, Recharge, Refresh, and Restore- the mists offer skin a moisture boost infused with essential oils and vitamins.

I've been using the Relax version, which has a lavender and vanilla scent (the vanilla is very faint) which is soothing on skin and the senses. I love that the mist is multi-use and works well before makeup, after cleansing, after makeup application (for a natural, dewy finish), and throughout the day for a quick refresh. The mist applies with an even, super light mist that doesn't leave you feeling drenched.

Youngblood Pressed Mineral Rice Setting Powder in Light

We've covered mist, and are on to the set with the Pressed Mineral Rice Powder. When it comes to setting powder, I like something light, and more often than not, translucent. This powder is both. the talc-free, rice starch based powder has the silkiest, light-feeling texture that works to set makeup, control shine, and can even be used pre-makeup to smooth and hide pores. I use this most as a setting powder- for my full face or just under the eyes to keep concealer in place. I love that it's super light, never gets cakey, and mattifies, but with a natural finish. Plus, the pressed formula is easy to take on-the-go (with included sponge and mirrored compact) and is much less messy than a loose powder.


And, the glow. Be excited about the glow.The Youngblood Mineral Radiance range features a few different bronzing options, with Splendor being more of a blush and highlight duo. The round pan features four shades that can be used separately or combined for a glowing pop of colour. Two sections contain stain blush shades in a rose and peach, while the other two are highlighting shades in pinky-peach, and a rosy-champagne. The powders all have a sily, easy to blend formula and are free of any shimmer or glitter pieces. I like to swirl my brush over all of the shade as use this as a highlighting blush, as the highlight isn't too intense and gives skin a really pretty glow.

Overall, I'm super pleased with these products from Youngblood. They've come to a brand I've regretted not trying sooner. Have you tried any of these products? Do you have any brand favourites I should try?
