6 Ways You Can Use Younique’s Mineral Eye Pigments

The younique mineral eye pigments come in many amazing colors and are great for many uses.When you think of Younique’s Mineral Eye Pigments, what initially pops into your mind? Loose eye shadow? Yeah, that’s the same for most people. What if I told you that the mineral eye pigments are much more versatile than only being used as eye shadow? Ah, do I have your attention now?!

There’s nothing that excites me more than finding out a product has more than just one use. Really, I get quite excited about it because it means I get to play around with the product to learn what it can do and it also means that my money is well spent… and I like spending my money wisely.

Younique UK: How Did It Go? One Word. AMAZING.

Image of the United Kingdom flag. Younique launched into the UK in October, 2014.There aren’t many words to describe the excitement that happened this past Wednesday, October 1, 2014 for the Younique UK Launch. You remember when you were a little kid and it was Christmas Eve and you could hardly sleep because you were so excited about Santa coming on Christmas morning? September 30th was just like that, but at 34-years old and for a launch, not presents. I was so excited that I literally couldn’t sleep. I think I finally went to bed around 1am, only to wake up at 1:44am to check the time (to make sure that I didn’t oversleep), and then my alarm went off at 2:30am. [Read more…]

The Younique Convention: A Truly Life-Changing Experience

image of the Younique logo at Gaylord TexanI’ve been home from the Younique convention for two days now and my head is still spinning from it all. I learned so much from the speakers and Derek Maxfield and Melanie Huscroft. The energy was beyond anything I could have even imagined. It was electrifying and something that I was very proud to be a part of. Being at the Younique convention just reaffirmed that the timing was right for my to join Younique and that I’m where I’m supposed to be. I’m thrilled, blessed, and proud to be part of this amazing company that has morals and actually cares about the presenters. Hands-down, joining Younique was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

So let’s start from the beginning of the convention. I was really nervous to go to convention alone without anyone from my team. Sure, [Read more…]

June Goal Accomplished: I Reached Pink In Younique!

I reached the pink level in Younique in June!When I first joined Younique, my sponsor said something along the lines of “be prepared to work just about for free for the first 4-6 months”. Now, not to sound arrogant, but I figured she had to be talking to everyone else because that couldn’t be true for me. I was going to knock my Younique business off its socks right from the get go.

I was going to make a name for myself right away and advance through levels. After all, Younique is the first company that I’ve ever wanted to join and succeed in. Yep, she had to be talking to everyone except [Read more…]

Younique Products Review of the products and Presenter Kit

I finally have time to post my Younique Products review along with all of the photos that I took when I opened my Presenters kit. With our son getting over walking pneumonia, he didn’t go to school today so we had a great mommy-son day playing games, reading books, watching TV, and playing. It was such a fun day!

Anyway, onto my review. Once I made the decision to become a Younique Products presenter I ordered my kit for $99. Considering there is almost $400 worth of products included in the kit (which also happens to be a very nice makeup box), it was a very easy decision. After I placed my order, my husband and I started to talk about the Younique business opportunity and the potential.

As you may have read on his page, my husband has been in the direct sales industry for more than 12 years and spent some time researching the company. He was very impressed and excited for me and provided dozens and dozens of ideas on how I could market the Younique products online and off. The more we talked the more excited I got…  And I’ve never been so excited about any other business before, despite being exposed to quite a lot of them! So I decided to create a detailed post here about my Younique Presenter reviews and all of the overall unboxing experience.

Younique Products Box

And so the waiting game began. I mistakenly had the Younique Presenter kit mailed to our PO Box. It arrived on a Saturday and I didn’t realize that until Sunday. So I had to wait until Monday – and the excitement was building! Finally Monday arrived and I went to the PO Box first thing in the morning and picked up the priority mail box.

Younique Products Box Open

Upon opening the box I noticed that the black box (Presenters Kit) fit perfectly into the priority mail box. Just a side note, but it made me think that the owners of Younique really thought of everything down to the smallest detail ensuring everything fits into a certain sized box. After all, there are a LOT of different box sizes!

Younique Cosmetics Kit

Once I took everything out of the box, I saw the Younique Products Independent Presenters Guide, the kit full of makeup, and another package. At this point, I wasn’t sure what was in the white package.  But I was going to wait on that. The first thing that I wanted to do was open the kit to see all of the products inside.  Admittedly, I wanted to get my hands on the 3D Fiber Lashes. I was ready to see for myself if they (and the products) lived up to all of the buzz out there.

Open Presentors Kit

I opened the kit and got my first glimpse of everything inside. I was excited!  There were a lot of Younique products packed into the kit. Which product to try first… Ah, the 3D Fiber Lashes 🙂  Anyway, here’s a…

Younique Products Review: Items in the Presenters Kit

  • All 15 Shimmer Pigment Testers
  • All 15 Matte Pigment Testers
  • All 6 Concealer Testers
  • All 5 Blusher Testers
  • Very nice 3D Fiber Lashes case and the products
  • Eye Brush Set

In the photo above you can see the purple bag. Inside that was a couple of charms for a charm bracelet. The first was the Exclusive “Race to 10K” charm. This is part of the Race to 10K Younique Presenters in the company and only given out to the first 10K Presenters. And the second is a White Status Charm which everyone will receive because we all begin at the White Status level in the Younique compensation plan.

In addition to everything above, not part of the Younique Products kit (inside) I also received:

  • $10 in Younique Cash to spend on any products
  • Instant Access to the Younique Virtual Party System™ (How we sell products and build our Younique business)
  • $25 USD/$30 CAN in Younique Cash that will be credited to my account on my Birthday every year
  • PayQuicker Younique bank account (Once we earn $50 in commissions, Presenters are provided a Younique debit card where we are paid our commissions.)
  • Younique Presenter’s Guide
  • 10 catalogs

As far as what was in the white package, it was 10 Younique catalogs.  You can download the fall 2013 catalog here. This is a large file and will take a moment or two to download.

Younique Products Makeup Kit

As you can see, when the Presenter kit is closed I looks great. The quality is high and I was truly impressed. If you were to buy a makeup holder at a store like this, it wouldn’t surprise me to see this selling for $60 or $70. Or a LOT more if there was some well-known designer logo on there.

Moonstruck 3D Fiber Lashes Open

Next I opened the box for the Moonstruck 3D fiber lashes mascara. I’ll admit that I was excited to try all of the Younique makeup products, but this was the one that I was going to try first. Instead of providing all the details on there here, I wrote a separate 3D Fiber Lashes review blog post going over everything about this incredible product that I truly fell in love with. (And I’ll admit that I’m one of the picky ones when it comes to mascara – or any makeup in general!) Here’s a photo of my before and after:

Before and After 3D Fiber Lashes

If you’re wondering how easy it is to apply the Younique Mascara, take a moment and watch the video below. The video was created by Melanie Huscroft, who is the Co-founder & VP of Sales and Marketing for Younique Products.

Younique Fiber Lashes Video

Now a review of Younique beauty products wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t talk about the prices of their products. To give you an idea, the Fiber Lashes sell for just $29 and last for two months.  Compare this to other options to have amazing lashes and this is a great deal in my book. As far as the price of the other Younique beauty products, I find that they are very comparable to many other makeups out there. Feel free to browse around my Younique website.

Oh, and as far as the other Younique products, I will be providing detailed reviews on each of those shortly. But I will tell you that I tried the pigment and love it compared to what I’ve been using the past year. So more Younique product reviews to come. (In between mom and wife life!)

Review of 3D Fiber Lashes by Younique

Welcome to my review of the 3D fiber lashes by Younique Products. When I first saw a picture of the 3D fiber lashes online, I wasn’t sure what I was looking at. Was it fake lashes? Was it mascara? I remember looking around online to try to figure it out. I came across many pictures of eyelashes that were super long, so I was convinced the 3D fiber lashes were false eyelashes. After all, I have never seen real natural eyelashes as long as these were.

But after reading a bit of information I realized that the 3D fiber lashes were not false eyelashes; they were real eyelashes! Huh. Now just so you know, mascara is probably my most favorite makeup item in the world. I have great eyelashes (if I do say so!) and love enhancing them with mascara. If I was ever stuck on an island and could have one makeup item, it would be mascara without a doubt!

Yes, The 3D Fiber Lashes Are Real

3d fiber lashes box setYou can imagine my excitement when I found out that the 3D fiber lashes were real and would enhance my eyelashes up to 300 times! I was completely sold at that moment. Literally. I told my husband about the 3D fiber lashes and told him I wanted to not only use the 3D fiber lashes mascara, but I wanted to sell it as well.

To say he was surprised is an understatement. You see, I’ve never been into the whole direct selling industry. I dread getting invited to home parties to learn about the latest and greatest tupperware or lotion. I’m not a salesperson and I don’t want to feel like I’m bothering my friends. There’s never been a company that I’ve heard about and got excited about… let alone want to join. And, my husband has been in this industry for as long as I’ve known him, which is 10 years.

Blown Away By Younique Products & The 3D Fiber Lashes

Enter the company Younique Products. I felt so blown away by just seeing stranger’s results online. I felt a sense of urgency in signing up and could not wait for my kit to arrive. When the kit arrived, I was, again, blown away, but more about that in another post.

I couldn’t wait to try out and review the 3D fiber lashes mascara. I knew what to do and I applied a coat of my regular mascara first. Next, I opened up the transplanting gel and the 3D natural fibers. (I read that it’s easier to have both bottles open since you want to apply before the previous coat dries.) I put the transplanting gel on my right eyelashes and then put the fibers on immediately after. I focused on the ends of my eyelashes and the outer corner. I applied the transplanting gel again to seal the fibers on my lashes.

I looked in the mirror and fell in love. Well as in love with one completed eyelash as a girl can be, ha, ha!

I moved on to my left eye and followed the same steps as I had for my right eye. I did make a slight mistake and applied too many fibers to my left eyelashes, but it was an easy fix once I put the final transplanting gel on. I used my lash comb and the extra fibers came right off. Super easy!

My eyes looked amazing with the 3D fiber lashes. My only errand was going to the grocery store, but I’ll tell you what, I’ve never felt better grocery shopping!

Here’s My Before And After Photo For The Fiber Lashes

Before and After 3D Fiber Lashes

How To Apply Your Fiber Lashes Mascara

This morning, while still in my pajamas, I played around with the 3D fiber lashes mascara. I read that you can use the fibers without putting a coat of your regular mascara on first, so that’s what I tried. I put the transplanting gel on my bare eyelashes, followed by the 3D fiber lashes, and then the transplanting gel again. I actually liked my eyelashes better doing it this way… and I saved myself having to put on a coat of mascara at the beginning!

The best part? Even though your eyelashes will be long and beautiful, it all comes off so easily with soap and water or with a makeup remover towelette. It takes no more time to remove than my regular mascara does.

I am so happy that I found the company Younique and their amazing products. The Younique products are just as fabulous as they claim to be and I know that the 3D fiber lashes are going to make many women just as happy as I am! If you are thinking of trying out the 3D fiber lashes, do it! You won’t be let down, I promise. The whole process takes less than 3 minutes and it’s really easy to do. You can order yours today for only $29. Yes, they are worth it!

If you’re interested in joining me in the Younique business and becoming a Presenter, you can see everything included in the kit in my Younique Products review.  It’s going to take me some time, but I will be trying all of the the products and providing reviews on each one. And yes, I’ll also be doing videos very soon!

Younique Products News: $2.06 Million in Sales in December

The Younique Products business is growing by leaps and bounds. In the next few days I’ll be posting some fun updates including my before and after photos when I put on the Moonstruck 3D Fiber Lashes. 🙂

If you would like to learn more about the Younique Products business or products, click here. Be sure to contact me if you’d like to join my team. We have some VERY exciting things happening that I’ll be sharing with you soon. Below is the newsletter sent from Younique Products Founder, Derek Maxfield sent to all Presenters.

Younique Products Newsletter

Happy Monday Younique Presenters!

Younique Products Derek Maxfield

Younique Products Founder, Derek Maxfield

In all my years of business, a new year has never seemed quite so exciting to me as 2014 does right now! The oft-overused direct sales industry term of “momentum” certainly has application to what we are seeing right now with Younique, and all of you are a part of it! One of the ways direct sales companies know for sure that they have momentum is they grow during the “down” months and they explode during the typically-big months. We certainly saw many teams explode during November and December and now with January upon us I was bracing myself for a little slow-down. I should have known better!

We are less than 6 days into January and we are already pacing well ahead of both November and December. That’s insane! Many companies just wonder how much they will go down, and don’t dream of growth. But we’re not many companies, we’re Younique! As an example, we have already brought 662 new Presenters into the family in January, that’s well over 100 per day! All I can say is, let’s keep this momentum going!

Final Numbers for December:
December New Presenters: 2,138
December Sales: 2.06 million.

Pigment samples in stock starting Wednesday at 12:00 Noon Mountain time! You wouldn’t think such tiny little products would be so time consuming and difficult to manufacture, package, and keep in stock, but as many of you know we are long overdue in getting the pigment sample pouches back available in your back offices. With supplies somewhat limited again (though not quite like last time) we wanted to be sure to give you some notice and give you a heads up on pricing:

  • 15 shimmer pigments (10 of each color; 150 in total): $60 US / $72 CAN (40 cents each)
  • 15 matte pigments (10 of each color; 150 in total): $60 US / $72 CAN (40 cents each)
  • 6 concealers (10 of each color; 60 in total): $30 US / $36 CAN (50 cents each)
  • 5 blushers (10 of each color; 50 in total): $25 US / $30 CAN (50 cents each)

This is higher than they were priced last time but like I said those little buggers are a bit more involved than we had initially thought. This time, however, they come pre-packaged in sets of 10 in little clear baggies and the overall sets of 10s all grouped together in a black Younique-branded bag with zip lock sealer. One of Younique’s goals for this coming year is to make more and more products available in sample size, including some of our liquid products like Glorious Primer, so more to come on this front!

As indicated in the caption above, these samples will be made available for non-commissionable purchase in your back office business supplies section beginning Wednesday at noon mountain time. We will then keep you updated periodically on remaining supply available.

Have a fantastic week everyone!
