To add a touch of radiance to your cheeks, try Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics' Luminous Creme Blush in Plum Satin ($27).

Released as part of Youngblood's new summer collection, Luminous Creme Blush in Plum Satin has a light, oil-free formula. The blush feels creamy in the pan, but once I spread it on my cheeks I noticed an almost mousse-like texture that allows for great blendability. Unlike some other cream blushes, Youngblood Luminous Creme Blush has a comfortable matte finish that doesn't feel greasy.

I was impressed by the great pigmentation of Youngblood Luminous Creme Blush in Plum Satin. While it is important for creme blushes to be somewhat sheer so that you don't overdo it, I get tired of having to apply layer after layer of overly sheer formulas. Not the case with Youngblood Luminous Creme Blush in Plum Satin, which amps the pigmentation up a notch while still being sheer enough for a natural look.

Although Youngblood Luminous Creme Blush in Plum Satin looks like a muted plum color in the pan, it looks like more of a dusty rose shimmer with hints of purple and red when swatched:

I think this color would look great on people with cool undertones, particularly with dark hair. I'm a warm-toned blonde, so Plum Satin is probably not the ideal shade of Luminous Creme Blush for me. Still, I was surprised by how good it looked when applied with a light touch:

In addition to the great texture and appearance of the formula, Youngblood Luminous Creme Blush in Plum Satin contains healthy, all-natural ingredients like Vitamins C and E and Allantoin, an effective anti-irritant. Youngblood Cosmetics are not tested on animals. 

Overall, I'm impressed with Youngblood Luminous Creme Blush in Plum Satin. The pigmentation is fabulous and I love the light, non-greasy finish. The color is not the best for me, but I can imagine some cooler-toned ladies rocking this one. Youngblood Luminous Creme Blush is available in six shades so maybe I'll try Pink Cashmere, a medium tone pink, instead!
