Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics

Birchbox Breakdown

When it comes to shine, there’s a thin line between a dewy, radiant complexion and looking like you moonlight as an auto-mechanic. To stay on this side of an oil spill, we rely on Youngblood’s Anti-Shine Mattifier. The balm-like formula keeps oil in check all day long while upping your makeup’s staying power. The translucent hue seamlessly blends in with all skin tones and leaves behind a satiny finish.

How it Works

The long-lasting, dense formula soaks up excess surface oil and imparts a flattering, soft-focus finish. Don’t be afraid of the balm’s nigella and pumpkin seed oils—rather than adding shine, they soothe, calm, and repair your complexion.

How to Use

Before applying makeup, use the spongy applicator to gently press the formula onto your eyelids, the sides of your nose, your chin, and any other oil-prone spots.

Glyceryl Myristate, Modified Corn Starch, Ozokerite, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Nigella Sativa Seed Oil, Cucurbita Pepo (Pumpkin) Seed Oil, Phospholipids, Octyldodecanol, Silica, Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Lonicera Japonia (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Caprylyl Glycol.

Youngblood Anti-Shine Mattifier

This product can be used for any skin type, Youngblood Anti-Shine Mattifier Oil Control will leave skin with a long-lasting mattifying effect. The best part is you want have to worry that your pores will clog because this amazing product won't clog pores. I love it because it will leave skin clear and healthy all day long. With the ingredients it contains it is great to use at any time because skin will be left soothed and moisturized. I will be purchasing this product in twos now.

Not for my skin
Sampled

I have oily skin so I was pleased to get this primer, but it didn't do anything to control the shine on my face at all. I used it both above and below foundation, also mid-day and never saw a noticeable difference.

Doesn't Do Much
Purchased

I didn't really get the mattifying finish that was advertised. I DID happen to get annoying little flecks of this product sitting on the tip of my skin. More annoying than it was worth.

I received a sample of the anti-shine mattifier. It's in a cute compact and does the job your looking for. It comes with a little sponge so you don't have to use your fingers to apply.

primer?

I received this in my very first birchbox and was really excited since it was a deluxe sample but I was a little let down since it tended to make me oily and shiny by the end of the day even though it was a mattifying product....go figure!

Youngblood anti-shine mattifier

I love to use this in the summer when my skin is the oiliest. Works perfectly all day long and helps keep my foundation in place without melting.

Ok - not amazing
Purchased

This was subpar for me. When I put the product on the sponge and applied it to my skin, often times little balls from the formula would form instead of it applying nicely and evenly onto my skin. Didn't work for me personally

Decent but didn't blow my mind..

The feel of the product on your skin is nice but the mattifying qualities didn't last long. Would try again if the samples in my birchbox were a little larger but I have tried better products with the same purpose.

Good Product

I've been using this on my t-zone instead of primer or powder and it appears to do a good job of controlling shine. I especially like the fact it comes in a disc rather than tube.
