Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics Precious Metal Liquid Liners - Swatches and Review

 Today I have a look at some liquid liners from Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics that can really make any eye look pop. There are two shades: 18 Karat and Sterling. These are great because I love to layer them over black liquid liner and make them more the focus of my makeup look. The brush is thin that it makes the liner easy to apply and it doesn't budge once it dries. Find out more and see swatches below!
