October is national Breast Cancer Awareness month, and from October 11- 31, 2012, Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics will donate a portion of the proceeds from sales of one of their products, the Crushed Mineral Blush, to the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation.
The three shades available are Dusty Pink, Sherbet and Tulip. They are each $22.00 USD for 0.10 oz.
Youngblood Cosmetics products are, of course, cruelty free, and they are made without talc, oil, parabens, artificial fragrances, or dyes.
How did Youngblood Cosmetics choose The Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation?
“It’s an organization that works to eradicate breast cancer, and improve the quality of women’s health through innovative research, education and advocacy. Dr. Susan Love and her team stand for many of the same principles our company upholds, including not testing on animals,” says President
and CEO, Pauline Youngblood, who is a breast cancer survivor herself. “We admire their vision and are proud to support them in their goals.”
There is a sifter to dispense the Crushed Mineral Blush:
Swatches of Sherbet and Tulip. Click to enlarge.
Sherbet is a gold-laced pink-peach. Shimmer. Youngblood reports this is one of their top sellers.
Tulip is a sheer baby doll pink. Satin
Dusty Pink, I did not receive, but it is described as, “a sweet shell pink.” Satin
Ingredients: Mica (CI 77019), Zinc Stearate, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Starch, Kaolin, Dimethicone. May Contain: Bismuth Oxychloride (CI 77163), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Ultramarines (CI 77007), Manganese Violet (CI 77742), Carmine (CI 75470), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891).
My thoughts: I love that a portion of the sales will be donated to breast cancer research!
The Blush colors can not only be used on your cheeks and temples, but it is safe to also be used on your eyes and lips! For the lips, Youngblood advises mixing or blending into a lip gloss or lip balm.
You can build coverage very easily with the Crushed Mineral Blush.
Youngblood designed the shades to work on all skin tones.
The mineral blush is housed in a sifter, so there’s no mess.
Cons: Nothing. If you don’t want a shimmer (Sherbet) then choose a Satin: Dusty Pink and Tulip.
