To keep your skin photo-finish ready all day, finish off the look with Youngblood’s Hi-Definition Hydrating Mineral Perfecting Powder.

Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics

Birchbox Breakdown

Consider this the primer for the girl who doesn’t think she needs one. Even if you like to keep your beauty regimen simple this mineral primer is a worthwhile addition. (Did we mention it’s packed with nutrients and minerals like honeysuckle and malachite?) This colorless primer goes on with a light silky finish and acts as a base to set your foundation so your make-up will have an I-just-applied-this look all day long.

How it Works

Sure, this velvety primer conceals fine lines and minimizes your pores, but it’s also teeming with minerals and nutrient-rich vitamins to protect against environmental damage, meaning your skin will start to look smoother all on its own.

How to Use

After using your daytime moisturizer, apply the tiniest dollop to your fingers (a little goes a long way) and emulsify before applying in a circular motion all over your face.

Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Cyclopentasiloxane, Cyclohexasiloxane, Ethylhexyl Salicylate, Smithsonite Extract, Rhodochrosite Extract, Malachite Extract, Hematite Extract, Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Retinyl Palmitate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Caprylyl Glycol.

Laura Mercier move over....

This is by far the best face primer I have ever used. I threw away my Laura Mercier primer after using this just once. There really is no comparison. My face felt great and looked smooth all day. I don't have to reapply any powder to my face when I use this primer. My look is flawless now. *happy happy joy joy*

I liked it

Out of all the primers I've tried (and there's been many) this is my favorite. It's so silky and feels great on my skin. Just wish it didn't cost as much as it does.

Love/ Hate relationship

I love love love this product. It definitely works and leaves your makeup intact for hours and in the heat and humidity. I wore it to a football tailgate in TX in August. The temp. was 106 degrees that day! My make up stayed on and didn't smear at all. My eye makeup looked amazing. Everyone was asking me how on earth my makeup looked freshly applied while theirs was a smeared hot mess.

The downside ladies is that this product has silicone. Everyday use of this product will clog pores and cause breakouts. I used it consistently for five months and my face started to get raised bumps. I went in for a facial and was told to stop using the primer on an every day basis.

Needless to say I was heartbroken and have stopped using it everyday. Don't get me wrong next social event I will be using it but it's just not something that can be worn everyday.

Good Primer

This is a good primer. It didn't work magic, but it did it's job. I used all of it before going back to my normal primer. It has a nice texture and went on smoothly. Over all a good product.

Loved it!

This is the only primer that works for me! Doesnt make my skin greasy and works so good. I purchased it after my sample was gone and I will continue to do so.

Smooth to help makeup last all day

Love this mineral primer - it is gentle and the texture is amazing - smooths on your skin and definitely gives the perfect foundation to have makeup last.

I like this, especially when I'm breaking out or tired because it fills in any lines or bumpiness to make foundation flawless versus caking up in places.

A bit pricey, but mine has lasted for quite awhile. I don't use everyday (making it last), but definitely one of my favorites.

Perfect!

My skin recently changed from combination to OILY. I had no clue what to do to to keep from looking like a greasy mess at the end of the day. This primer is amazing. It has an incredibly smooth matte finish which I love. The texture of my face is as smooth as a baby's bottom and not greasy at all.

A little goes a long way!

I'm always skeptical of primers and face creams in general due to breakouts. This didn't irritate or clog pores at all. In fact it's light as air. Just a little squirt and I'm good to get made up.

Great Primer

Just like the product description says, I'm a girl who doesn't think she needs a primer. I received a sample of this and was skeptical, but I fell in love with the silkiness of it when applied, and my foundation goes on super smooth. Just ordered the full size bottle!!

Phenomenal Primer

This is by far my favorite primer I've ever used. It leaves your skin feeling silky and smooth without feeling heavy. I also have very sensitive skin and it did not irritate it at all
