Mystere lipstick from Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics looks downright menacing in the tube. A metallic finish for a ruby red worthy of a witch's shoes can be quite a statement. Those of us with frosty makeup nightmares are also likely to look at Mystere suspiciously. But the lipstick was part of a gift bag, and I'm here to try stuff you don't have to, so I got a lipstick brush and hoped for the best.
I already have a couple of lipsticks from Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics and I love them very much. The formula is pliable, comfortable and leaves my lips feeling good and never parched. Mystere is no different, and as you can see, it can actually be applied almost sheer. It's a dramatic color, of course, and has a high shimmer content, but no actual glittery particles. Mystere is a pretty and fun evening lipstick color, and long lasting enough to make it a good choice when one doesn't want the color all over the champagne glass.
Bottom Line: deserves some love.
Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics lipstick ($19) is available from Henri Bendel, Fred Segal, and ybskin.com. I received the product as a gift during a press event.
