I was given a tube of Young Blood lipstick to try out and review. If you check out my Young Blood cosmetics review from last year you will see that I’m already a fan of the brand based on how well their other products work. Therefore, I was really excited to see if their lipstick is as good as I hope it is.
The company description of the Young Blood lipstick is “Rich, creamy color condition lips with a blend of natural oils and minerals. Lanolin free.”
Two other things that jumped out on the packaging were the words paraben free and cruelty free. This means that there will be one less bad chemical that your body will have to fight off and one less bunny will have to suffer for this lipstick to be developed. It’s a win-win.
Young Blood Lipstick Review
The color that I got to try out is called Tangelo which looks like a bright summery orange color. I have to admit that I wasn’t thrilled to try it out when I first saw it. Orange just isn’t my color. However, try it I did and it was just another reminder that you can’t be judgmental if you haven’t tried something. The color turned out to be more of a shiny coral that a bold orange. How bright the color is dependent on how many layers you apply.
Personally, I prefer the three layers for nighttime and when I want something a little more easy going I mix it with a nude color. It’s sensual, it’s beautiful and it’s fun. It can go from day to night as well making it well worth the $19.00 price tag.
I also noticed that the lipstick is in fact creamy and moisturizing. It applied effortlessly and once it was on, it made my lips feel velvety smooth and soft- almost like a gloss. When I looked at the list of ingredients that they used to make the lipstick, I understood why.
- Castor Seed Oil
- Sunflower Seed Oil
- Jojoba Seed Oil
- Wheat Germ Seed Oil
- Safflower Seed Oil
- Grape Seed Extract
- Honeysuckle Flower Extract
All of these ingredients are highly nourishing which is why they’re used in so many beauty products. If you have dry, cracked lips the Young Blood lipstick should definitely be on your wish list because it will help to soften them out.
As I mentioned before, the Young Blood lipstick feels and looks more like a gloss than a lipstick. It has a lot of shine and feels good on. Unlike a gloss, it doesn’t fade instantly. It actually does lasted for about four to five hours and once it did start to fade it was a slow process. It started to look matte and after a while just disappeared. It survived a cup of coffee but not lunch which is ok by me because most lipsticks don’t even last the coffee for me.
All in all I do like the Young Blood lipstick and would I buy it in the future. Have you tried it out? What do you think of it?
