I’ve enjoyed the bright lip trend – I’ve been wearing hot reds and pinks for months now – but as summer draws near, I’m craving a juicy lip look. I want bright colors, but with a glossier finish.

Youngblood Cosmetics is launching a new lipstick shade that fits the bill, with a formula that’s creamy shiny, and soft on my lips, too. The new shade is called Dragon Fruit, and it launches on June 1st.

I’ve worn Dragon Fruit a lot since The Makeup Show NYC, where I received it, and I’ve been impressed with its wear, too!

Check out my swatches! I might have gone a little crazy with them haha. The first one is with flash, the others are natural light.

This lipstick is not just the perfect shade for my skin tone and for summer, with a creamy formula, it’s paraben and cruelty free. I can wear this for hours without touching up. It also stains your lips a little so by the time I felt it wearing off my lips, I still had color left behind.

It isn’t totally kiss proof – it does come off, something I discovered after repeated kissing during our engagement photos!

Youngblood lipstick retails for $19 through the brand’s website here.

Have you ever heard of Youngblood?! Youngblood is a mineral makeup company started by Pauline Youngblood, who started her career as a medical aesthetcian and designed her makeup line for patients and eventually founded her commercial line 17 years ago.

So what do you think of Dragon Fruit? I think this would work on a lot of different skintones. What about you? Would you rock Dragon Fruit?!

And are you craving juicy lip color now that summer is coming closer?! I’d love to hear your comments!

    I think this is a gorgeous shade. I’ve never tried or heard of this brand before but I’m definitely interested now.
