Youngblood Liquid Mineral Foundation Review

Our favorite foundation, that we use at the salon for makeup applications, has been discontinued. It was called Transforming Foundation and now we are on the hunt for another one that we love before we run out of what we have. One of our suppliers suggested Youngblood Liquid Mineral Foundation. So, I gave it a go!

I completely agree with the philosophy of Youngblood cosmetics. These are mineral cosmetics that contain no talc, parabens or artificial fragrance and they are not tested on animals. The Liquid Mineral Foundation is also vegan and gluten free. This foundation contains a lot of flower and plant extracts. Which is great, except for my allergy friends. You really need to read the ingredient list for potential allergens.

The foundation color we tried was Golden Tan, Not a bad color for me. It comes in a 1 ounce plastic pump bottle for $49.00.

I found the foundation to be a light, somewhat thin liquid. You can see it starts to move down the palm of my hand when I tilt it. It has a very light fresh fragrance to it which comes from a blend of the essential oils lemon, orange and ylang-ylang. It provides sheer to medium coverage with a satin finish.

The best way to apply this foundation is with a foundation brush or your fingers. A damp sponge makes the foundation too watery and it doesn't go on right. A dry sponge sucks up too much of the product.

The Review
I applied the Youngblood Liquid Mineral Foundation with a brush and my fingers over a moisturizer. I did not use a primer and I didn't set it with powder so I could see how it did on it's own. It looked nice. I found it to go evenly but it became a little blotchy throughout the day. I felt I needed to reapply it midday to smooth it out. Perhaps, my skin absorbed some water from it. A primer would probably solve that problem. The second day, I tried it with setting powder (still no primer). The powder did make it hold up better. I felt the slight itch from the foundation after application that disappeared quickly.

This foundation provides light to medium coverage. The coverage is sheer and will build up with more layers. The finish has a fresh, dewy look. It feel very moisturizing and creased ever so slightly into the smile lines.

I think this is a great, light feeling foundation for everyday use. In fact, one of our salon owners has been using it and she is getting tons of complements on how great her skin looks! I'm still on the fence about the coverage and sheen it has for bridal photographic makeup, though.
