Youngblood Liquid Mineral Foundation Review

Is your skin looking parched from the cold winter? It needs moisture and protection from the harsh winter winds! Some foundations offer more hydration for dry skin than others. One of our suppliers suggested we try Youngblood Liquid Mineral Foundation with Deep Sea Hydrating Complex.

I always like to sample a product before we start carrying it in the salon. 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 and is suitable for sensitive and irritated skin. Which is great, except for my allergy friends. You really need to read the ingredient list for potential plant allergens.

Our sample foundation color was Golden Tan, not a bad color for me to try out. This foundation comes in a 1 ounce plastic pump bottle and sells for $49.00. (Looks for a better price on Amazon!)

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 worries me that it will not provide enough coverage. It's fragrance is very light and comes from a blend of the essential oils lemon, orange and ylang-ylang. They say it provides sheer to medium coverage with a satin finish.

Application
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 evenly. A dry sponge tends to soak up too much of the product.

The Review
The First Trial: by itself
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. I also wanted to experience the amount of hydration it provided. 

It looked nice. I found it to go evenly but it became slightly blotchy throughout the day. I felt I needed to reapply it midday to smooth it out. Perhaps, my dry skin absorbed some water from it. A primer would probably solve that problem.

The Second Trial: with setting powder
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 provided light to medium coverage. I found the coverage to be sheer but would build up with more layers. The finish has a fresh, dewy look. It feels very moisturizing and creased ever so slightly into the smile lines.

The Third Trial: with primer
This time I tried it with the Youngblood Mineral Foundation Primer. It's a clear gel primer that is applied after your moisturizer and before your foundation to help the foundation go on smoother and stay looking great longer. It is designed to blur out flaws making the pores look smaller and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Did it work? It sure did! The Youngblood Liquid Mineral Foundation looked fresher and smoother all day long with the primer underneath. This magical primer can be used with any foundation. 

The Youngblood CC Perfecting Primer is another fabulous priming product your can use under a foundation or by itself. It has color pigments in it that help even the color tone of your skin. I highly recommend it! There are only two colors, Bare and Tan. Use Bare on light to medium skin tones. Use Tan on medium to tan skin tones.
I recommend this foundation for dry/combination skin types for it's hydration effect. I think it's 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!
