I love eyeshadow duos because they get rid of the guesswork and make it easy to figure out which shadows go well together.
Youngblood Cosmetics is a new brand to me, and when I recently tried their products for the first time, I was really impressed by their eyeshadow duos, particularly the Youngblood Cosmetics Perfect Pair Mineral Eyeshadow Duos in Desire and Charismatic.
Desire has a dark royal blue shimmery eyeshadow and a lighter lavender/gray, while Charismatic has a chocolate brown eyeshadow and a shimmery peachy pink.
I think both are really pretty, but Charismatic speaks to my soul. It’s totally my kind of eyeshadow because the colors are subtle, but also a bit sparkly.
For starters, these shadows are highly pigmented, but still smooth and blendable. The texture reminds me a lot of the Kat Von D eyeshadows. They’re somewhat powdery when swatched, but I don’t experience any messiness or fallout once they’re applied.
I love the look and feel of Charismatic so much that I decided to try two different eyeshadow looks with it. For the first look, I applied the lighter shade all over my lids, and then I lightly buffed the dark brown shade into the outer corners.
Then for my second look, I basically did the reverse. I patted the dark brown eyeshadow all over my lid, then used the pinky color to blend out the edges. I also used a pencil brush to apply the dark brown eyeshadow to my lower lash line…
I love the way these eyeshadows feel and look! I think that Charismatic will definitely be one of my go-to eyeshadows when I’m in a rush to get out of the house. It would also be great for travel, since the compact has a nice mirror.
