Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics

Birchbox Breakdown

This dual-ended eye pencil is the Houdini of the makeup world: It performs a vanishing act on tired, dark eyelids and stray brow hairs alike. Infused with light-reflecting minerals, the magical pencil contains a matte, pinky-nude eye shadow and shimmery champagne highlighter.

How it Works

The two-sided pencil is designed to revive tired-looking eyes and works on all skin tones. It’s non-irritating and made with top-notch ingredients like macadamia nut and mango seed oils, while microcrystalline wax ensures a smooth, tug-free application.

How to Use

Use the matte shade as a standalone shadow or neutral base. Apply the shimmery highlighter to the inner corners of your eyes and on your brow bone. Watch dark lids disappear and your eyes come to life.

The BEST
Purchased

I am loving this product. The shimmery side is great for the inner corners of the eyes and I even use it from the outer corners to my temples and blend in to lift the my eyes a little. The matte side is great for creating an arch above the eyebrows to lift them as well.

Effective product, brightens as promised

I ordered this without very high expectations, but after using it for a few days I really do love it. It lasts all day and I am able to line my waterline without smearing, smudging or fading.

Just ok

I bought this to use on the inside corners of my eyes to brighten them. I guess because I'm so fair complected, the pencil was actually about the same shade as my skin so it didn't have the lightening effect I was looking for. I did try to use it as a concealer for my undereye circle but it didn't do well. To cover a small blemish, it worked perfectly.

tired eyes? This is your answer

I love this pencil. I use it on my inner lower lids and upper inner lid to open up the eye. It makes your eyes go from drab to fab in a few strokes of the pencil. You can also define the brow like, inner edges, play up eye shadow and even use on your face to high light certain areas.

Doesn't glide on. Chunky on my lids

I don't use this. I like the color for my skin, but it doesn't glide on easily and it looks chunky. It's hard to blend with my fingers so it's just messed up my look in the past. Not a fan.

How convenient! Love the duo!

It's a highlighter and eye color in one! You can't get better than that! At least for me, who is minimalist. When I use this it is the best thing for me. It is easy and fast. You apply the shimmer to the lids really quick just around the base of the eye, and it is a gorgeous champagne color, then I apply the highlighter matte color to the inner part of the eye to look brighter and to the arch of my eye brow to highlight my eye brows, and it looks great! There are probably endless ways you can use this. But that is how I do. It is so simple. It sharpens really easily. The duo function of this pencil is what draws me in.

Youngblood Eye-lluminating Duo Pencil

Youngblood never seems to disappoint me; this is no exception. I absolutely love that this has two different ends. It blends easily, as a little shimmer where you want it, super convenient to toss in your purse for quick afternoon touch ups. This has become a staple in my makeup routine.

Brightest eyes of all

I adore this pencil. I use the matte end to highlight my water rim and it instantly brightens my eyes up. Shimmer end works wonderfully as an eye shadow or highlighter. Pulls triple duty!

Cover my dark circles

I am so glad to have such a nice pencil that does the job of covering my dark circles. And this one is perfect because you can get just the right color by blending the two ends. They are just the right texture, not too hard but also not too soft and messy. I keep two of these one in my travel kit and one in my make up drawer, that way I'm ready without having to go digging to find my stick for travel.

Works Wonders

We had our annual company meeting followed by a late night out with the girls. The next morning I swiped this on my eyes and got so many compliments even though i felt like I was dying! Must have!
