BeautyYoungblood Thinks Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Guess what? October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and we’re thinking pink!

Since our friends over at Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics are featuring  their pretty pink blushes this month (and donating portions of sales to the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation) we just had to try them.  Both Dusty Pink and Tulip work over a wide range of skin tones, and give off a soft and pretty glow.
