I had the pleasure of sampling Younique Mascara from their consultant, Vanessa O. I got them in the mail on Wednesday evening and just ripped that package open!
The packaging is amazing. The products come in a case that looks like a fancy glasses case. It felt very luxurious. Here’s the description from the official Younique Website:
Our simple three-step process combines Transplanting Gel and Natural Fibers to build incredible thickness and volume to your existing lashes. Watch as your lashes transform into something you have only dreamed of! The 3D Fiber Lashes are water resistant but easily washes off with warm water and facial cleanser at the end of the day. Try it! It will quickly become your favorite makeup must-have!
And the directions, also from their Website:
To prepare your eyelashes for optimal results, first apply one thin coat of your own regular favorite mascara and let it dry. Then, apply Moodstruck Transplanting Gel (containing conditioning collagen) to your lashes.
Immediately following, and while the gel is still wet, apply the Moodstruck Natural Fibers.
Reapply the Transplanting Gel a second time to secure the natural fibers onto your lashes.
For my first attempt, I followed their instructions exactly. I applied one thin coat of Buxom mascara, which is what I’d been using lately. I then waited for it to dry, then put on the gel, and then the fibers.
Me Oh My! Look At Those Lashes!!!
My thoughts: This is actually pretty amazing! I feel like I have on false eyelashes…without the hassle of false eyelashes!!! I used to wear falsies almost every day. Since I stopped, I felt like my eyes were always lacking a little oompf. Like this:
Except…that’s how I felt without falsies on. LOL
Well Younique Mascara is the answer to that little problem!!! I can feel like I’m wearing falsies! HOORAY!!!
Tips: Here are some tips I got from Vanessa O.: You don’t actually have to put on a coat of your own mascara first. I love this tip because nobody wants extra steps in their morning routine!
You want to make sure you get a good coat of the transplanting gel. She technically said, “Take the transplanting gel tube and turn it upside down with the top facing down and rub it in your hands – this warms the gel and assists with getting more on the wand! Pump the wand several times before pulling out and when pulling it out, twist up instead of pulling straight out.”
To remember all that, I just say, “Rub it and pump it, girls!!!” ;) (If that sounded dirty, then…well…I meant it to. LOL.)
I am SO happy with this product! It’s not even that expensive compared to other high-end mascaras sold through places like Sephora or Macy’s. If you’re used to drugstore prices, the $29 price tag might make you stretch a little, but it’s right on par with other high-end mascaras.
So what are your thoughts?
