Hey guys! I’m so sorry I haven’t been able to get many posts up recently. There’s been a lot of family issues I’ve been working through and I rushed into the emergency room at 4 am because i was in excruciating pain, shaking uncontrollably, and had a high fever- turns out I have a UTI, so please bear with me! I’m doing what I can. It’s easier to be active on Instagram- so feel free to follow me there for daily makeup posts and mini reviews. 🙂 @stay.beautifful
But today we are here to review the Younique 3D Fiber mascara!! If you have an Instagram or a Facebook, I’m sure you’ve seen this product at least once! There are many Younique presenters out there and so many accounts dedicated to selling Younique products, but mainly this best-seller, and seeing it over and over again can get quite bothersome to many, but it also raises the question in your head- so…does it really work?
So we’re going to be discovering that today! Candace, a Younique presenter, was kind enough to send over a product for me to review and test out. Thank you again, Candace!
In case you haven’t heard of the product or don’t know how it works, the mascara set comes with two tubes- one is the transplanting gel which coats your lashes first, then you apply the Moodstruck Fibers over top of the gel- both the way you would a normal mascara. You can repeat as many times as you want to build the intensity. Younique recommends to use the mascara for a period of 3 months, and by then, you should purchase a replacement. The mascara is sold for $29, and here’s a link to purchase through Candace: Younique 3D Fiber Mascara. The set comes in an adorable packaging that looks like a sunglasses case, and there are little loops to store the tubes for easy traveling! I do like the sturdy packaging because it will ensure the safety of the mascaras.
Take a look:
Here are the tubes with the Younique logo and labels indicating what they’re used for:
So I went in with the transplanting gel first, then applied the fibers which are like tiny little fuzzy hairs that grab onto the gel to extend the look of your lashes, creating a full, eye-opening effect. I have very short lashes as it is, and they point straight down. I used the gel then fibers method for three coats before I couldn’t coat anymore on, it was beginning to look a bit clumpy.
In my honest opinion, I think this a pretty decent mascara! I’m not head over heels and ready to trash all of my old mascaras for it, but I think since my lashes are so short to begin with, there was honestly nothing for the fibers to grab onto. Therefore, the end result was clumpy and my lashes didn’t look as vavavoom as I wanted them to and it’s disappointing because I did see a lot of photos with nice, long lashes and I definitely had my hopes up. I also didn’t like how the fibers fell onto my face and my lower lash line. I also wear contacts, so it got into my eyes and irritated my eyes which was painful.
I’m much more of a falsies girl, I find it extremely easy to pop on false lashes and head out the door instead of applying coat after coat of gel and fibers and gel and fibers and waiting for them to dry and curling my lashes, and wiping away the fibers throughout the whole process. I’d recommend this for somebody who likes nice, natural makeup for school, or for work, and already has medium to long natural lashes to begin with.
After trying false lashes, none of the mascaras I’ve tried since have really wowed me because since false lashes are fake, the curl, intensity, length and volume is already there. I don’t have to try to sit and perfect my lashes and use a lash comb to comb through each lash and clump, I can just pop the lash on and I’m ready to go! In my personal experience and preference, that’s what I enjoy and is the quickest option for me. It may be totally different for you- and you could love this mascara! So don’t write it off completely just because it didn’t work for my lashes.
So all in all, I think this is a good product, and I wouldn’t knock it. It’s just not for my personal style of makeup. I do new makeup looks on a daily basis and I photograph my eyes all the time for Instagram and create looks for Youtube, and nothing beats the look of false lashes when you’re photographing a makeup look or doing a dramatic eye. For someone who just does eyeliner and mascara for a quick 15-minute beauty run, this would be great to amp up those lashes! Thankfully, Younique has a 14-day return policy so if you don’t like it for any reason, they won’t ask questions and will refund you.
I also know that there are some amazing reviews of this mascara from girls that I’ve seen and read. There are some gorgeous results out there! And Younique presenters are able to make money selling products from home, which I think is great! I work from home, so I definitely can attest to the convenience and luxury of that. So just because it didn’t work specifically well on my lashes doesn’t mean it won’t work wonderfully on yours depending on your eyes, lashes, and preference of makeup!
