Youngblood Pressed Mineral Eyeshadow Quad - Starlet
Youngblood Pressed Mineral Eyeshadow Quad in Starlet since late last winter. I wanted to take my time in reviewing it because if you're like me, a bit tight with the money, I want to be sure that all four shades can be used on their own, all together and that they are grade A quality. I'm so pleased to say that the Youngblood Pressed Mineral Eyeshadows are amazing! They are rich in pigmentation, buttery in texture, extremely easy to blend out and into each other, they don't crease on my moderately oily lids (tested with/without a primer), and because of how little product you need to use - you get a lot of product for your money. I can't even begin to tally how many times I have used this palette, and it still looks brand new, barely any dips in the eyeshadow pans so far.
I love the quality of the palette, it is black and sleek - a classic look, and the closure is magnetic. The strong magnetic closure is not too strong where you're struggling to open it and not too light where it'll open on its own in your cosmetic bag. There's a full size mirror inside, normally I don't use these, but the large size is actually really handy for when I'm doing my lower lash line makeup application. The back shows the eyeshadow names, this takes some getting used to, for some odd reason I always get the eyeshadow names mixed up.
As I mentioned earlier, the eyeshadow quality is fantastic! I love mineral eyeshadows, and having them pressed but still hold that amazing pigmentation is simply a luxury I enjoy. The quad is described as "icy accents and dramatic darks".
Moonstone: a frosty white (very similar to MAC Crystal Avalanche)
Storm: a matte charcoal with a slight brown hue
Black Opal: a rich satiny pitch black
Platinum: a shimmery cool toned silver
I also used this quad in a recent FOTD and tutorial which you can see here: http://www.beautybykrystal.com/2012/05/fotd-mac-hey-sailor-preview-event-51512.html
