I had my friend Savannah Miller contact me about trying Younique mascara. I had been contacted several times from people I didn't know but when someone I actually knew told me about it I decided that it would be a great thing to review and that I was a pretty good candidate for it because my lashes are thin and short. (If you're looking for a rep she's a good one to talk to about it.) So what better way to see the power it has than trying it on someone who hasn't got really good lashes to begin with. I'll provide the link to purchase this at the end of the review but I'll give you the details now. I got the Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lash Mascara which is what they're noted for. It was $30 and comes with a case and the two formulas that you have to use. I have no issue with the cost, because if you're a lover of makeup especially if you shop at Dept. stores or Sephora, you're gonna see $30 mascara every where you turn. So I ordered it on a Friday and it got to me the next Friday.
In the set you get the Transplanting Gel and the Fibers. You need to do one eye at a time and if you want you can use your own mascara first. Which I do recommend doing. I used Kat Von Immortal Lash because it really separates my lashes and its a drier formula. So using your mascara after it's dried, apply the Transplanting Gel while the Gel is still wet apply the Fibers. This is where your gonna notice the difference and don't freak out if it starts looking a little wonky. You seal it with the Transplanting Gel again and I don't skimp on this part, I really coat it good because this helps the fibers position themselves a little more natural looking and not going left or right. You can layer the product if you want, gel to fiber and back to gel. I only did two layers though. I watched Makeup By Tiffany D demo on how she used hers to really see what the best way would be and I used her tip which was taking a clean disposable mascara wand and really combing out the lashes after each layer was sealed. I did that and it did help and I recommend you to do the same. It doesn't take away the fibers it just helps straighten them and separate the clumps you may have.
This is what it looked like when it was all said and done. I added a little bit of liner to cover up some mascara smudges, but for someone like me who literally has very thin very short lashes it's a good product to have. As far as lengthening it definitely does do that. Far better than any other that you're going to try at Sephora or the drugstore. My only issues where that I accidentally got some fibers in my eye (that was my fault completely), and it's time consuming doing it the way I did it. Not like really really time consuming but just more effort than what you would put into regular mascara and more time consuming than lashes are for me. It's a good product though and I don't mind spending time to make something look really good or better and more natural. That doesn't bother me.
Here's the final picture the first one is my regular mascara, the second is one layer of the Younique the third is the 2nd layer of the Younique mascara and the fourth is just the finished look with a little bit of liner added to it. It looks kinda clumped together in these but really it's not it's just that my lashes are very thin and kinda sparse so the product doesn't have a lot to hold on to. Like I said this is really different and it does lengthen. It lengthens more than it thickens I think, so for people who already have nice lashes I don't know if I would get this one because the fibers can get really long which you could easily take it off but I think a nice voluminizing and thickening mascara works better for those individuals who have really long lashes already. For you ladies that are like me and have short lashes or if your lashes have become less than what they were through age this is a good product to try. My mom tried it and it really made a difference on her lashes. I don't feel like these pictures actually do it justice for how it looks in person but it was the best I could do so as time goes on I'll try to take better pictures of the results when I use this. I still really like false lashes just for the "even" and "perfect" look they give but for days when I'm not gonna wear lashes and am just low key I'll definitely reach for this because it does make a difference.
