Youngblood, makeup delicato e minerale!
I really like high-end mineral makeup. And the American brand Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics in particular, because products are made with minerals in the purest form and do NOT contain parabens, alcohol, artificial fragrances, mineral oils, talc or petroleum. Warning: Talc can clog pores, dry skin and cause irritation. In place of talc, YB uses rice starch and vitamins.
I've been trying some new products including Creme Powder Foundation, a compact foundation cream in Neutral shade, the number first clear. I like the idea that, depending on how it is modulated, the coverage can be light to medium. I've always put it with a flat brush, quickly, but you can use the sponge of the pack.
It hydrates and colors and, with wheat bran and green algae, helps soothe redness - rosacea even - and to counteract oxidative stress. When you finish it, just buy the refill, without throwing the case :)
Hydrating Lip Tint is a cream in stick with a sun protection, SPF 15+. It's very soft, almost liquid, deeply moisturizes the lips and lasts long. It can be used as a base for lipstick, I put it after the lip pencil, it makes a good impression. The balm contains jojoba oil, argan, sunflower and avocado as well as beeswax.
The liner - I tried it in black - has two characteristics: It goes well and lasts a long time. Ideal for inexperienced hands like mine, it's hard to go wrong then :) Even if waterproof, you can easily clean it.
Mineral Radiance Crème Powder Foundation, 69 euro, Refill 51 euro; Hydrating Lip Tint Spf 15, 27 euro; Eye-Mazing Liquid Liner Pen, 27 euro. In esclusiva da La Gardenia e da Limoni.
