I’ve never used before receiving this Holiday Glam set to review:
Youngblood Holiday Glam bag contains:
1. Vixen Lipstick (a red)
2. Truly Red Lip Liner Pencil
3. Venetian Sun Loose Blush (a light pink-gold type shade)
Its a little unusual, I guess, to review a lipstick and blush from a Mineral make up company, rather than foundation but it makes a nice change.
What I noticed about the lipstick is that it feels a little bit harder than I usually like – I like my lipsticks to be like Utterly Butterly at room temperature, but I’ve noticed this trait quite a lot in Mineral lipsticks.
In the tube it looks like a nice red – I have tons of nice reds at the moment but it really came to life once it was on the lips:
This is a great red, not overly vampy or too subtle. It also makes my lips look healthy rather than emphasizing my usually dry smackers.
Here is the blush:
On me, its more of a highlighter – its a light pink infused with gold. Its very pretty but as I said, more of a highlighter for girls with warm-dark skin.
Not a bad set for the holidays and a little slice of the brand. I’d like to try some of the base products out at some point to see if it can convert me (I am still a little cynical towards mineral make up – I just hate overly powdery finishes on the skin).
You can buy it for £38 or if you are in the US, for a rather better value $39 .
