|Youngblood lipstick in Pink Lust, shimmering in the sun.|
Let's begin with this lip color's formula...infused with essential oils and vitamins, it is designed to keep one's lips hydrated for hours. Its lack of lanolin or fragrance also adds to its inherent value in my book!

On to the color and texture...Pink Lust is indeed pink; it also has complex shimmer that warms the shade to a light-medium pink, lending it marvelous opacity for a color that at first swipe seems quite sheer. The texture itself is remarkably smooth, shimmer and all, and I like the how light it feels once applied. It is more like a veil than a heavy cream lipstick but still yields a pigmented effect that lasts 3-4 hours.

The moisturizing properties stemming from the quality ingredients of this formula are palpable. I have lips that are prone to dryness and I found that this lip color did not make my lips dry at all (which, in my experience, is rather noteworthy for a high shimmer product!). It truly feels like a silky balm that just happens to be a lipstick...genius.
