Youngblood Cosmetics: Mermaid Palette
Youngblood Cosmetics is a company that is pretty new to me. I have heard of them (They have been on Hautelook a few times!) But this is my first real introduction to them. I got to meet some of their team at IMATS last June, which was nice! :)
The first product I’m going to be reviewing is the Mermaid palette. It consists of four watery-themed shades. My initial reaction with these is that their color payoff was less than desired- they are all pretty sheer for my taste. The colors themselves are fantastic, my favorite being the top left shade, its a very unique lilac with a green duo chrome. The color is soooo sheer, though, it really bums me out. I only realized how much awesome potential these babies have when I tried swatching them over black, then it was like BAM! Color. Duochrome. Awesomeness.
See?! They all look amazing.
This palette retails for $43. $10.75 a shadow. In my opinion, that’s a little steep considering how much color payoff they have on their own. That being said, I will use this palette, as the colors are just too good to pass up when layered over black.
