In its ongoing support of national Breast Cancer Awareness month, Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics will donate to the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation a portion of its proceeds from the sales of Crushed Mineral Blush ($22.00 MSRP 0.10 oz) in Dusty Pink, Sherbet and Tulip.
Founded in 1996, Youngblood is the premier brand for the finest mineral cosmetics. Products are made without talc, oil, parabens, artificial fragrances or dyes. The Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation is 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."
Crushed Mineral Blush is highly pigmented to give cheeks and temples, a natural looking flush with buildable coverage. The loose minerals can also be used on eyes and lips. The three shades work on all skin tones: Dusty Pink is a sweet shell pink; Sherbet us a gold-laced pink-peach (and a top seller); and Tulip is a sheer baby doll pink. The specially designed sifter makes dispensing easy and precise.
"Sales of all three shades of Crushed Mineral Blush will help Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation continue its important mission of finding an end to this disease," adds Pauline.
Proceeds of the three shades will be donated beginning October 1, 2012, and are found at ybskin.com; NewBeauty at Fred Segal in Santa Monica, California; Henri Bendel in New York; and at select spas and salons; and by calling (800) 216-6133.

Youngblood Crushed Mineral Blushes are "ideal for contouring and giving that natural hint of color for the cheeks. You can even use Youngblood Blushes as and eye shadow or lip tint. To contour cheeks, jaw line, nose or brow: Choose a darker blush, such as Adobe. Apply with the Youngblood Contour Blush Brush, feather and blend, then choose a lighter color such Dusty Pink or Plumberry and apply to the apple of your cheek with a Youngblood Super Powder Brush. Using a swirling motion, softly blend the blush downward. Touch-dust overall with Youngblood Rice Setting Powder for the softest of looks. To highlight or brighten the eye area: Use Tulip, Dusty Pink or Coral Reef. Apply with Youngblood Eye Shadow Brush wet or dry.

Sherbet is a gold-laced pink peach (shimmer finish) (reviewed here).

Tulip, Sherbet and Dusty Pink sparkle and twinkle in the sunlight without being overly glittery. Instead they offer a gorgeous glow and luminescence that is immensely flattering.
