Can we please just take a minute to look at my lashes & admire the beauty, y’all!!
Truth bomb right here. Almost 5-years ago I joined Younique for the mascara and adult interaction. Like I just told someone today – I never dreamed that it would turn into anything more than my love for mascara. I was longing for a great product and some adult time. For real. It’s history now, but I only signed up to be a Younique presenter because I figure that for $70 more, I could get a ton of makeup… and who wouldn’t that appeal to?!
When my Younique Presenter Kit first arrived, I could not wait to try out the 3D Fiber Lash mascara. I mean, it was the product at the time and I had seen some crazy (read: amazing) long lashes on Facebook. I had very high hopes & the second that gel wand hit my lashes, I was in love. Then I added the fibers and it was a strong love that developed. That first selfie I took of only my mascara covered lashes still stands out to me, but mostly because of how funny it is to just see eyeballs and lashes, lol.
Younique’s original 3D Fiber Lash Mascara was how my business was built. Whether it was me blogging about it, posting on my Fab Fit Beauty business page, or carrying around a “I have 3D mascara in here” bag, it was successful and very obvious that women wanted the same thing as me: Beautiful lashes.
It was such a wonderful ride until the formula changed a couple of years ago. I just couldn’t get my lashes to have the same length and volume as before. That WOW factor was clearly absent and I think a lot of my customers and friends felt the same way. Don’t get me wrong; it was still a great product, but there was something different about it and the results I got from using it.
You can imagine how excited I was when Younique released their Epic mascara. It’s a one-step mascara and the results I saw were fantastic! I tried it out and have been obsessed with it ever since. It’s wonderful and great and all the other awesome adjectives I can think of. It’s what I use every day and I’ve been so happy with it…
Yep, that’s right. I totally cheated on it and have that crazy long lash, lots of volume, lashes touching my brows kind of thing happening right now. And holy hell, the love story presses on because I have found the WOW factor again. Seriously, y’all, just look at my picture! It’s even better than my (albeit terrible) eye selfie almost 5-years ago.
Naturally, I had to create the same kind of photo because why not. It’s fun & really shows off my lashes. I like to think it’s just a tad better than it was before, but that’s to be decided, lol.
So, what did I cheat on my Epic mascara with?
Introducing Younique Epic Waterproof Mascara & Fibers
This is the combo that takes me back almost five years ago. This is the combo that gives my lashes the highly desired long length. This is the combo that gives me more volume. This is the combo that is similar to the product that is behind the reason I joined Younique. This is the combo that will give me that little bit of added confidence just like the original did. This is the combo that is pure and utter magic to your eyelashes. Not even joking.
You need this combo.
Let me be honest with you because I am sure that there is someone out there that I lost when I mentioned the word “waterproof”. Yeah, I know. Me too, girl, me too. I’ve never liked waterproof mascara in the past. It always felt so different than regular mascara, but more importantly, it was nearly impossible to remove. Well… consider my old opinions about waterproof dead and buried.
Younique’s Epic Waterproof mascara is different. It comes off with a makeup remover wipe, just like the regular Epic mascara. I don’t feel like I have to tear off my lashes just to remove it (which is kind of how I felt with trying waterproof mascaras in the past). It’s so fabulous!
How to get crazy length & volume with Younique mascara
If you have ever used the 3D Fiber Lash mascara or the 3D Fiber Lashes+ mascara, you’ll do the exact same thing. If you’re a newbie to our awesome mascara, here’s how you do it:
- Have both the Epic waterproof mascara & the fiber tubes open in one hand.
- Pick an eye and apply the Epic waterproof mascara to those lashes.
- Immediately apply the fiber wand to the lashes while Epic is still wet.
- Go to your other eye and repeat the above steps.
- Return to your original eye and put on another coat of the Epic waterproof mascara to seal and hold the fibers on your lashes.
- Put another coat of the Epic waterproof mascara on your other eye.
- Voila! Enjoy your beautiful lashes!!
Helpful Tips: If you find that the fibers come out of the tube in excess, simply roll the fiber part of the wand on your hand so that they stay close to the wand instead of flaking on your face.
If you want to conserve your Epic waterproof mascara, use the transplanting gel (comes with the 3D fibers) to seal the fibers on the last step.
Remember, this is buildable, so if you are going for dramatic, go ahead and repeat the steps above a time or two more until you get your desired look.
To remove: Simply use a Shine cloth or your favorite makeup remover wipe.
