Young Blood Liquid Mineral Foundation in Shell and Foundation Brush Review

I love using cruelty free, paraben free and vegan mineral makeup products because they are sooo good for the environment and also our skin. I can not emphasize how much I love mineral makeup, however, I do find them to be messy, especially if you have wooden vanity, the mineral pigments can really create a mess. So I wanted to try the liquid mineral foundation from Young Blood Cosmetics and I am so happy to share it with you guys. The shade I ordered is Shell and I also have and amazing foundation brush from Young Blood for a perfect streak free application. If you are MAC's NC 20-25, you don't wanna miss this review :)



LIQUID MINERAL FOUNDATION IN SHELL

This liquid foundation has hydrating deep sea minerals that helps keep dryness away. Its a great foundation for dry skin types but I also noticed that its not at all oily or greasy on skin. Its quite transfer resistant too, which is a huge plus for me, since I wear scarves around my neck all the time.
The shade Shell, is a shade lighter for me. Its described as a fair shade with warm undertones. I feel it is more suited to NC 20-25 skin tones, than my NC 30-35 skin tone.
It sets really well on skin with a medium to full coverage and has a  great lasting power without a primer. For me it lasted about 7-8 hours, which is fantastic! I really love this foundation and I may get it again in my correct shade, because it works great on my skin type and since its mineral makeup, its cruelty free and vegan which is a huge plus!

This foundation is for $49 for 30ml and can be purchased from Young Blood Mineral Cosmetic's Website



SWATCH


LIQUID FOUNDATION BRUSH
This is hands down the best foundation brush, I have ever used! Its thick, its wide and it has dense and soft bristles that result in streak free application every time!!
I can't rave enough about this cruelty free brush as it has made my foundation routine soo easy!!

UPDATE: I have used this for two years now and this brush stayed true to its form. It did not shed a single bristle and even after several washes, its still looks great and works perfectly. I would 100% recommend this to everyone.

This brush is for $45 which is high for personal use, but this will be one of your best makeup purchases. You can buy this from YB's website






Overall, I love these products from Young Blood Mineral Cosmetics and I would recommend these to a friend. Young Blood has always impressed me with their high quality mineral cosmetics. Its really a brand to consider if you like to use cruelty free and paraben free makeup.
