You guys, I’m in LOVE! …with mascara, but still. A few months ago my friend, Ashley, began raving about a line of makeup she was selling called Younique. She was obsessed with their Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes mascara, and all I could think was, I own more mascaras than I’ll use in the next ten years. Eventually I caved and let her put it on me and Oh. My. God. Love at first sight!
Above is an unplanned early morning shot the first time I tried the mascara. On the left eye I have on my beloved $30 Lorac mascara. On the right is Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes. What a difference!
Younique 3D Fiber Lashes is made with 100% natural fibers taken from green tea. For all of you eco-friendly gals out there, it is a naturally based, vegan product that is not tested on animals. And, for what it’s worth…it’s gluten free? Not sure how lashes can be gluten intolerant, but if yours are, they’ve got you covered!
The larger tube is a Transplanting Gel that has the same look and feel of regular mascara and is applied first. The second, smaller tube of Natural Fibers reminded me of a wand of black cotton candy. After applying the fibers, a second coat of the Transplanting Gel locks it all in. It was definitely as quick and easy to apply as regular mascara. I can also vouch for the fact that these lashes are water resistant, yet wash off easily with a facial cleanser.
After trying 3D Fiber Lashes, Ashley came over and we tried out Younique’s other products. My favorites were the Moodstruck Precision Pencil Eyeliner in Perfect and the Moodstruck Glorious Face and Eye Primer- both felt like satin and went on super smooth. Next on my wish list: Uplift Eye Serum. There are some amazing before and after photos floating around the web- check them out!
For $29, it is not inexpensive, but it is the exact same price I was spending on my original mascara. Want to experience the magic for yourself? It’s easy-for the next 10 days, you can order Younique products by clicking here. Now go fall in love!
