Youngblood On-the-Go Beauty Set: Review & Swatches

Youngblood has done a fantastic job with their new On-the-Go Beauty Kit. This lovely set, which retails for $25.50, features five of Youngblood's best-selling products in convenient travel sizes. The kit is housed in a gorgeous faux ostrich-print makeup bag in the lovely and perfectly on-trend shade of oxblood.
According to Youngblood, "Pamper and protect skin – from head to toe – with this six-piece deluxe sample sized set, featuring Youngblood’s best sellers!"

 My set is "Medium."
1) Mineral Primer- "This colorless base helps enhance the performance of makeup throughout the day. The lightweight, silky formula smoothes the appearance of fine line and pores, creating an even surface for foundation. Packed with minerals and vitamins to protect skin from environmental damage." This is a clear gel primer that is silky smooth and comfortable to wear. It leaves skin moisturized, and the perfect canvas for foundation. I really like this primer a great deal.

2) Liquid Mineral Foundation in Sun Kissed- "Say goodbye to dry! Our Deep Sea Hydrating Complex quenches parched skin for a healthy radiance. A special blend of rare Reduced Salt Deep Sea Water, botanicals and more than 20 ocean minerals soothes and revitalizes skin. The pore-free finish wears for hours." I love this formula- it's lightweight with buildable coverage, and it feels scrumptiously moisturizing. I will definitely want the full size product when I finish this sample!

3 Mineral Radiant Moisture Tint Illuminating- "This lightweight moisturizer does triple duty! It leaves skin comfortably hydrated, provides sheer, even-toned coverage and shields skin from environmental damage. The nourishing formula glides on smoothly for a healthy, dewy glow." This luminous formula leaves your skin with an ethereal golden glow.

4) Mineral Radiant Moisture Tint- "This lightweight moisturizer does triple duty! It leaves skin comfortably hydrated, provides sheer, even-toned coverage and shields skin from environmental damage. The nourishing formula glides on smoothly for a healthy, dewy glow." F A B U L O U S!

5) Mineral Illuminating Tint Body- "Enhance a Summer glow all year long with this non-streaking, luminous body tint. The highly moisturizing formula is packed with natural oils and antioxidants to do wonders for dry skin, while the soft bronze tint helps even out skin tone. With the indulgent scent of Shea Butter and Coconut Oils." Just plain gorgeous!

6) Eye Impact Quick Recovery Eye Cream (shown in photo above)- "Tired of looking tired? Give eyes a wake up call with our hydrating, illuminating eye cream. It instantly reduces the signs of fatigue with a combination of powerful ingredients (including antioxidants, peptides and caffeine) for revived, fresher-looking eyes." This was a wonderful surprise! Youngblood understands how to make a very good eye cream-- a feat that is much harder than one would think! This eye cream has neither irritated my eyes, nor has it given me milia. It is really a lovely eye cream.
