Youngblood Minty Shiny Lip Gel Review:
I was really excited to test drive the new Minty Shiny Lip Gel from Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics. The two shades I have are Unveiled and Confessed. They look similar in color, except Unveiled has shimmer in it and Confessed is slightly more red in tone. They both look brighter/more intense in color in the tube than they actually look on your lips. As you can see in the swatch photos, they appear lighter in color over the white background than on my hand. The more pigmented your lips are, the brighter/more intense the color will appear.

I like the fact that these glosses are sheer because they provide the perfect pop of color to go with almost any look. Out of the two shades I have, I've used Unveiled more but I like they both shades equally. The shade Bared looks like a gorgeous nude, and is the next shade I'd want to try.

The thing I love about these the most is how shiny they are. My lips are super glossy every time I wear these, unless I apply a thin layer (like shown on my lips in the photo of me wearing the shade Unveiled, where I applied a thinner layer). They're non-sticky and will last an average amount of time for a gloss.

Probably the only negative I could say is the price; at $25.50 per tube I feel like you don't get a lot of product. I'm already 3/4 the way done with the shade Unveiled and I rarely go through lip gloss like that. Catch them on a sale or with a coupon if the price bothers you. Other than that, these glosses - or should I say Lip Gels - are fantastic! They're shiny, moisturizing, non-sticky and pretty on the lips. I'd recommend!
