When it comes to makeup, lashes are my everything! I’ve used fake lashes and extensions. I’ve tried high end mascaras, drugstore brands and everything in between. One brand didn’t do everything I wanted it to so my holy grail mascara regimen involves two. On any given day I layer a coat of Benefit’s “They’re Real” with Maybelline Volum’ Express “Falsies.” I swear by these two products especially when used together. However, that doesn’t mean I’m opposed to trying new things.
Cue Younique’s “Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes.” I’d never even heard of Younique before but I was asked if I wanted to review their new mascara and figured what the heck. Their website describes the product as nothing short of a miracle…
“Packaged in two separate bottles, the Transplanting Gel and Natural Fibers are used together to enhance and magnify your OWN lashes. Watch your lashes transform into something you only dreamed of! A 300% increase in thickness and volume to your lashes while still looking completely real and natural. Potentially “mood-altering” 3D Fiber lashes will quickly become your favorite makeup accessory! Water resistant, yet easily washes off with warm water and facial cleanser.”
I was impressed by the packaging but did this stuff really work? I mean, a 300% increase?! It seems to good to be true.
The directions say to apply one layer of transplanting gel followed by a coat of natural fibers. Below you’ll see a series of progression photos:
1 – Au Natural Lashes
2 – One coat of Younique’s Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lash
3 – Because I love my lashes super thick, I decided to add a second coat.
4 – The directions say you can use your own mascara first then layer Younique’s Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lash. In this photo I did just that. (Please forgive my smudged eye liner.)
Holy lashes! Do I think this increased my lashes 300%? Ehhhh. Do I think it’s worth a try? Absolutely! I like this mascara because it’s like wearing false lashes without having to worry about them falling off in the middle of a date or night out. Both the gel and fibers are $29 and comes in the nice carrying case.
Younique is a company similar to Stella & Dot where anyone can become a consultant and sell their products to friends and family. I’d like to thank Justine for sending me the Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes and two color pigments in the colors Flirty (purple) and Sexy (gold). I used a touch of each color in the photos above in conjunction with some shadows I already own.
