I've got a beauty secret I want to share with you. Think of it as a Christmas gift from me to you. You need a good blue mascara in your makeup arsenal. I'd like to recommend that you add the cruelty free Youngblood Cosmetics Holiday 2015 Mascara in the Cobalt color, (.6 fl oz / $26). Youngblood is a luxury mineral makeup line that uses minerals from the earth, rather than dyes and chemicals that can irritate eyes and skin. You can read about the brand at this link.
I like to grab a cup of coffee or tea before opening presents, so let's have a cup of your favorite beverage together and talk about this mascara!!
Many years ago, I discovered the wonder of dark blue mascara. I'm talking about a fashion forward blue, like the cobalt color of the Youngblood Cosmetics mascara, not a baby blue 70's kind of color. I like to use either a navy or dark cobalt eyeliner to tightline my eyes, no matter what color theme I'm sporting, and/or a cobalt or navy colored mascara on the underneath part of my lashes, close to the lashline, and wiggle it in like a liner. Why?? Because blue in a subtle form around the eye accentuates EVERY eye color. Seriously, try it. You'll see. There is nothing like a deep bright blue to bring out your eye color. And the Youngblood cobalt mascara is the perfect shade.
It's a little difficult to show the color of the mascara because it's on a black wand. But let's try. I've turned up the brightness on the first picture below so that you can see the color better.
I've swatched the mascara for you next to a black so that you can see the difference in color.
There are so many qualities about this mascara that are fantastic. The color is the perfect depth of blue. The formula of the mascara is outstanding!!! It isn't goopy, doesn't flake, smudge or peel and applies like a dream. The brush is perfect for seperating my lashes and the mascara lengthens them to just about the length of a false lash.
I normally only use blue mascara close to the upper lash line. However, I can use the Youngblood Cobalt mascara all over, including my lower lashes. Because it doesn't run or smudge, I can wear it all day without rubbing it all over. I have an eye that's been weepy for the past year and this mascara stays put without wandering into the drizzle that I'm having such trouble with.
The mascara has a great feel on the lashes. It's not heavy and it's just so smooth!! I debated whether to post a picture of it on the eye just because the ones I took are without other makeup so that you can see the mascara and what it does for the lashes....but well, here we go. My lashes are so long with this mascara!!
I'd love for you to try it. I highly recommend it for application, wear, color and formula. The formula includes moisturizing sunflower seed oil and conditioning emollients. It feels great on the lashes. The cobalt mascara is out for the holiday season 2015, so don't let it pass by.
