So now that I’ve been using Younique products for just under two months, I wanted to give an update and review on one of my favorite products: The awesomely, amazing 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara. I’ve had some time to play around with the mascara since I wear it just about every single day. Now that I’m basically an expert (insert laugh here), I want to share my favorite ways to wear it.
Let’s set the scene: I’m sitting at my vanity in my room with the blinds open and my makeup mirror light on. I have both the transplanting gel and the fiber lashes bottles open and ready to go. I do change up the little things, depending on my mood and how much time I have. For example, if I’m applying mascara to drop my son off at school, I do not put a layer of regular mascara on first. If I’m going out, I just might curl my lashes and then apply some regular mascara on before. It just depends.
Important July, 2015 Update: Younique has launched a new, dramatically enhanced version of this incredible mascara called, 3D Fiber Lashes+ mascara. There have been so many new enhancements to this product. Please refer to the above blog post for new information about the 3D Fiber Lashes+ mascara by Younique – and see my video with full product demonstration.
If I apply a thin layer of regular mascara on first, it doesn’t matter what the brand is. Seriously. I’ve tried everything from my absolute favorite Benefit They’re Real to cheaper drugstore mascara like L’Oreal. It honestly does not matter what mascara is on my lashes at this point. It’s just like a base for extra volume to be added.
After I apply a thin layer of regular mascara (can’t stress the “thin” enough), I immediately follow up with the transplanting gel. I want the transplanting gel to go on while the other mascara is wet. After I apply a thin layer of transplanting gel, I immediately start applying the fibers to my already wet lashes. Once I’m happy with the fibers, I move on to the next eye so that the fibers can dry and stick to my lashes. This is only step where I want the lashes to be dry.
I apply the same steps above to my other eye: regular mascara, transplanting gel, and then the fibers. Once I’m satisfied, I go back to my first eye and apply the transplanting gel to seal in the fibers. And then I repeat that on the other eye. And that’s all I do to get amazing lashes!
3D Fiber Lashes Mascara Pro!
It’s that easy and takes me just a couple of minutes now that I’m a pro! When I first ordered the 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara, I wasn’t sure if it would be a daily thing I wore or just a nighttime, want a fancier, more dramatic look. After using the product, I just can’t go back to wearing only regular mascara. It’s like when you leave the house without your watch and you feel naked – The 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara is something that I always wear now or I don’t feel totally put together.
When I do want a more dramatic look, I apply the same steps above, plus another coat of the fibers and transplanting gel. I guess that’s the fab thing about this mascara – It’s totally meant to be put on in layers so that you can build up your lashes without them getting clumpy at all. If you do not have long lashes, you might have to put on 2 or 3 coats to achieve the volume and length you long for, and that’s okay.
3D Fiber Lashes Mascara Review: A Few Helpful Tips!
One last helpful hint for you: If you find any clumps, just “brush” them out with a lash comb. It’s a miracle for clumpy lashes! Although if you take my advice and apply thin layers on your lashes, you won’t have a clump problem… And I know that from experience! You should have seen the first time I put on regular mascara, the transplanting gel, and then the fibers. “Whoa” was my first thought and it was not a good thing. I got a little carried away with the application process and put everything on way too thick. I’ve since learned what works for my lashes and thin is the way to go!
So just being shy of two months using Younique’s products, I’m even more in love than before! The 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara is my favorite product, and I know I’m not alone seeing all the other 3D fiber lashes mascara reviews online! I’ve always loved mascara, no question about that, and that’s probably why I jumped on joining the Younique opportunity before even trying the product. I just love how mascara magically opens up your eyes in a way that nothing else can, but the fiber lashes just take it to a whole other level! Just remember, like with all makeup products, you have to make it your own and play around with it to see what works best for your lashes.
