I have been asked about this gorgeous lipstick many times and everybody seems to love the look of it, including me :) I adore this shade and the formula is amazing! It is the most hydrating lipstick I have ever tried and it is full of natural oils an vitamins to keep your lips nourished.
I adore the shade I received- it is called Tangelo and it is a sheer coral orange shade. It looks very flattering against tanned skin, but I also had a look at some pictures of this shade on pale skin and it looks incredible! I usually prepare my lips with a scrub and lip balm before applying lipsticks, but this one feels like a lip balm so doesn't need any preparation :) It glides on beautifully and feels incredibly hydrating and you can actually see the moisture in the formula. (see swatches) Amazing!
If you are scared of bright orange shades, you can dab it on with your finger or apply it on top of a lip balm for a lovely coral tint. I love coral lips, so I just apply it straight from the tube and go for full coverage to get the bold/statement lip colour I love :)
It stays put for 3-4 hours and it fades evenly, leaving a nice looking coral tint fro hours after application. 
Green light for all cruelty free bloggers- this lipstick is cruelty free, paraben free and lanolin free!
I am in love with this shade and I have a couple of other Youngblood products on my wish list after getting some recommendations from lovely ladies on Twitter.
