The Youngblood Fall 2013 Collection: Going for Glamour, to be officially released on August 1st, is no exception to the fall makeup rule...rich taupe, lush blue and beguiling burgundy tones beckon the wearer to embrace a cooler time of year, one marked by crisp air and colorful leaves.
Kindly scroll on for product images, swatches, pictures of the products on my face AND a video review!!

The first item in the collection is the Pressed Mineral Eyeshadow Quad in Glamour-Eyes. Retailing for $43, the four shades present varying degrees of brown and blue in the most delightfully unexpected way. Enticing is a cashmere taupe, Alluring is a warm chocolate taupe, Stunning is a creamy denim blue and Charming is a lush ice blue.

The next item is the Pressed Mineral Blush in Temptress, a deep cranberry with gold flecks. Retailing for $25, this blush is extremely pigmented! In my look below, I applied it first and then followed up with foundation over it to create a flushed, lit from within look (also explained in the video). Bold blush lovers should put Temptress at the top of their buy list!

The final element of the Going for Glamour collection is lipgloss in the shade, Siren, a deep burgundy with shimmer. Retailing for $23, this gloss provides a moisturizing sheen that can be blotted for a stained look or built up for unstoppable ruby-tinged lips.

Below are images of the collection on my face...even though the colors are quite dramatic, they can be sheered out for a very wearable, everyday look!
Bottom Line: The Youngblood Fall 2013 Collection is simply gorgeous...it can be applied sheerly for an everyday look or built up to maximum strength for intense glamour. I am always pleased with the Youngblood line and this collection is no exception. Highly recommended!
