Youngblood Spring 2013 Bouquet Collection and makeup look


With all the Spring collections coming out this year one after another, it is really hard to keep up with all of them.
I already noticed some Summer ones appearing in my feed :O

The most recent launch I was lucky to try out is The Bouquet Collection by Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics. 
Unfortunately, I couldn't make it to the London event (I live in Scotland), but I had a chance to play with the products at home and created a colourful Spring look with them.

On my eyes I used the Incredible Wear Gel Liner* (link £16.00) in shade Lagoon. It is a beautiful teal shade and it is very easy to apply. I am not a fan of gel liners, but this one is very creamy and long lasting. I applied it in the morning and it didn't smudge, until I removed it at night. I am very impressed with the formula and I quite like the change from a black winged line. I added a little bit of mascara to define my lashes and kept the eye makeup simple, without any eyeshadow.

On my lips, I am wearing the Youngblood Lipstick* (link  £14.00) in shade Debalicious. It is a baby pink shade, but it is very wearable. The consistency is really creamy and applies like a dream. I reviewed a coral lipstick from Youngblood previously and it is still one of my favourite shades. You can read the full review here.  Debalicious stayed put for 3 hours before it started fading and it left a subtle tinge of pink on my lips. 
Youngblood lipsticks are paraben and cruelty free and you can choose from 25 beautiful shades. 

On my face, I used Liz Earle Signature Foundation and Loose Powder and on my cheeks I am wearing Tarte blusher in shade Dollface. 
To set my makeup, I sprayed my face with the "Relax" Mineral Mist* (£20). It smells really nice, with notes of lavender and vanilla. I personally love it, but I wouldn't recommend it for those who don't like strong scents. I always ask my husband for his opinion, because he has a sensitive nose.
I am addicted to face mists, so I use it all the time - as a toner, to refresh and balance my skin or  to add a boost of hydration when my skin needs it. 

You can buy Youngblood products online (here) and from Selfridges instore and online.
