Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics is launching their Fall 2012 color line on August 1st, and I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to try their new Moulin Rouge palette to review for you guys.
Youngblood is drawing inspiration from nude looks on the runways for their fall 2012 collection, which includes this palette, an Incredible Wear Gel Liner in Sienna, Lip Liner Pencil in Au Naturel, and Lipstick in Blushing Nude.
This quad features Can-Can, a shimmery caramel, Revue, a pearl vanilla, Cabarets, a dark chocolate, and Red Light, a matte red-orange. My favorite colors are definitely Revue and Cabarets, because they are the most suitable to my skin tone.
As you can see, Revue is the most shimmery shade. Can-Can has a little sheen, while, to me, both Cabarets and Red Light are matte. Cabarets is said to have a light red shimmer, but I couldn’t detect it. They are all very pigmented, but Red Light has the least pigmentation.
The palette is a nice black plastic with a magnetic closure, which I like. It’s a very simple package.
As soon as I got this palette, I wanted to take off my current eyeshadow and redo it with the colors. So, here’s what I came up with. I put Revue on my lid, Can-Can on my outer half, Cabarets in the crease, and Red Light as a liner both on my top and bottom lash lines. I topped it off with Kat Von D lipstick in Adora lipstick with Youngblood’s Mighty Shiny Lip Gel in Displayed, which I reviewed here.
I found the shadows easy to work with overall. I’m just not too sure that it is very flattering on my eyes, since I typically prefer cooler shades- so Revue and Cabarets are my favorite shadows. But, I think the look turned out nice. If I had to make one comment on the palette, I’d probably say that I wish Revue showed up more shimmery on my eyes, it looks a lot different than it does in my swatch earlier in this post.
Youngblood’s Fall line, including this palette, will be available as of August 1st, 2012. This palette retails for $43.00.
