Youngblood's Luminous Creme Blush had an excellent texture and performed well. When layered under a powder blush, it provides longer-lasting color than powder alone. I tested the shade Pink Cashmere, which appears much brighter in the jar than it does when applied. It was a soft, buildable shade that would work well on a variety of skin tones.
This blush is gentler than most conventional products, but rates about a 4 on the EWG skin deep database. This appears to be weighed down by the inclusion of FD&C dyes. I'd love to see this product reformulated to be even gentler and to remove carmine, which is listed as a "may contain" ingredient. Carmine is not a vegan ingredient, but appears to be one of the only items keeping this blush from being animal-free.
If you're in the market for a cream blush and want something safer than conventional cosmetics, Youngblood offers quality performance with their Luminous Creme Blush.
