Younique Epic Waterproof Mascara + 3D Fibers = WOW

image of epic waterproof mascara and fibers from youniqueCan 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 [Read more…]

Younique’s Prestige Program: Never Run Out of Mascara Again!

Raise your hand if you’ve ever put on your makeup, then reached for your mascara tube, only to find it to be dried out and yucky.  What about the second you’ve swiped your mascara wand on your lashes only to see that the *WOW* factor isn’t very wow because you literally had to scrape the sides of the mascara tube with the wand?  Yep, both have happened to me too many times to count and each time I’m left to wonder why I don’t have a brand new mascara waiting for me stashed with my other makeup.

Ahhh, you know what I’m talking about with a brand new mascara! The way it makes your lashes stand out because of [Read more…]

Review of the Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+ Mascara by Younique

image of 3D Fiber Lashes+ mascaraBack in 2014, Younique was known for amazing 3D Fiber Lash mascara. Let’s face it; that’s the whole reason I signed up to be a Younique presenter in the first place.  The mascara was so fantastic and made my lashes incredible!  In the middle of 2015, changes were made to the mascara and, to be honest, while many still loved the new 3D Fiber Lashes+, there were many that had issues with it.  Fast-forward to January 2nd though, and guess what?

Birchbox Time: My October Fanfare Birchbox Review!

Image of the October 2014 birchbox set.It’s that time again to review my latest Birchbox. The October Fanfare Birchbox! It’s seriously just like Christmas when I get this fun little box delivered to my door every month. It’s the best and I love that I get introduced to products I probably wouldn’t know about otherwise.

That being said, this box isn’t my favorite by a long shot. I’m big into scents and some of the scents in this box are just too strong for me. And I was given mascara, which is pointless because I sell Younique and there’s no other mascara in the world that would make me change from my beloved 3d fiber lash mascara (To learn more about Younique, click here.). So yeah, this box isn’t my favorite, but maybe you might find something you want to try, so onto my reviews. [Read more…]

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!

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!
