The presses eye shadows from Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics come in three finishes: matte, shimmer and satin. Czar, the one you see here, is of the last group and has a beautiful silk-like sheen. This shade, described by Youngblood as "satiny cinnamon" is a coppery bronze thing, quite warm and with just a tinge of red to keep it interesting, but not weird. Czar has a summery look, it pairs well with Youngblood's matte Alabaster, as well as with various neutrals from other brands, and looks lovely with a green or khaki eyeliner.
The texture of this shadow is as smooth as they come, luxurious and blendable. The pigment is intense, and since it can also be used with a damp brush, Czar can give a striking metallic effect.
Bottom Line: pretty.
