All the fun of falsies without the stress of applying! 3D Fiber Lash Mascara Review

If you are anything like me, you don’t buy anything without doing a little research or asking around to make sure you aren’t wasting your money! I spent A LOT of time researching others reviews of the products and the company before I decided to sell Younique and I want to pass on what I have learned. So I to want to introduce you to some of the products I sell through Younique by doing makeup reviews. Remember that you are always welcome to ask me any questions and we can get a virtual party started for you at any time if you want to reap the hostess benefits!! (3D lashes for FREE in September!! Score!)

Of course I had to start with the best selling Younique product!

Younique’s 3D Fiber Lash Mascara:

 

I already mentioned the how and why of my decision to purchase and sell the product in my Younique business launch. So now let’s actually talk about what I think about these little beauties!

First Impression: Nice case, pretty packaging. Then I opened up the two tubes . “What the heck are these little hairy things?!” was my first thought!

I had read the tutorials and watched some how-to videos but I didn’t really pay attention to the texture of the actual product. These hairy things were in fact the fibers! Go ahead say it, Duh Andrea! So after I recovered from my shock and awe moment I took to applying the mascara. The application is a 3 step process.

Application: So you have your two tubes- The transplanting gel, and the green tea fibers.

The transplanting gel is like a basic thick black mascara. It is used as a base for the fibers to attach to your own eye lashes. I applied a nice thick coat to one eye making sure my lashes weren’t stuck together in any place. Immediately after I then applied a LIGHT coat of the fibers. I cannot stress this enough, a very light coat! About one and a half swoops of the fibers onto your lashes. Anything more will end up making them look clumpy, spidery, and messy. You will have the option to layer for a more dramatic affect later but you want to do this in light coats. The first day I tried the lashes out I only put them on one eye so I could do a comparison between the 3D lashes and my regular mascara. So while I let the 3D dry I applied my regular mascara to the other eye.  After the fibers set I used the transplanting gel again as a way to lock in and clean up the fibers. This is really what makes your look! This will also ensure that the fibers don’t fall onto your cheek during the day (I haven’t had any problem with smudging or flaking of my lashes!).  And Wa-la! Your done! Now this is where I stopped but if you are going for a more dramatic longer looking lash this is where you would repeat the steps!

Review:

  • Step 1: Apply the transplanting gel. Make sure you have a good coat. Make sure your lashes aren’t stuck together
  • Step 2: Apply a light coat of the fibers. Start at the base and swoop to the tips. You can do this one more time if you wish. But lightly, please!!
  • Step 3: Re-apply the transplanting gel to lock in the fibers!

A Sidenote:

Younique actually recommends in their directions that you apply a base coat of mascara to your lashes. I am not sure why they recommend this but I don’t agree with this. I didn’t think I should have to apply a different mascara underneath their product so I tested it out without a base coat of mascara. I don’t see the need for the base coat nor will I ever be putting a base coat on my eyes!

So, it was easy enough. It took me a few applications to get the amount of fibers right. I learned quickly less is more. I like my lashes to look neat and clean and they start to look a little hairy if you apply them thick all at once!

My final opinion: I love them! (as much as one can love in inanimate object!) In comparison it knocks the socks off my old boring drugstore mascara. I once spent over $25 dollars at Ulta for Benefit’s “They’re real” mascara and that didn’t even come close to looking as good as the 3D lashes do! So in my book they are totally worth the money!

“Alright I’m interested, what now?!” Wonderful! You have a few options:

  • Head over to my website and purchase your own set! (And let me know what you think!)
  • Host your own “Virtual party”- what is that? An open event party to all your friends on Facebook! Invite them and they will come! (I feel like that’s a saying or quote someone famous once said!) You Do the inviting, I’ll answer all the questions! And you get all the hostess benefits! (Remember I said free lashes in September!)
  • Become a presenter: The presenters package comes with 1 set of 3D lashes. So if your interested in selling and want to be really adventurous go ahead and by the presenters package (It’s $99 and comes with over $400 dollars worth of makeup for YOU!)

So if your sold! Yayyy! Enjoy your new product! If not, thanks for allowing me to share my new business venture with you and come back for the real fun stuff (Details on our travel adventures!!)

My Younique Business Launch!

So in my quest to be adventurous I have decided to try out a new business venture! Direct sale products have always intrigued me but I have never found anything I’ve liked enough to actually see myself selling to friends and family. How could I recommend a product to someone if I wasn’t totally in love with and exclusively using the product myself?!
Then I came upon Younique. I’m sure you have all heard of the 3D fiber lash mascara hype. I saw the pictures and testimonies all over my Facebook newsfeed. Being someone who LOVES makeup and is always looking to try something new and fun this product really interested me. But I didn’t buy it right away, I watched as a friend of mine posted picture after picture of her gorgeous lashes, then lip gloss, and foundation. All in all she just looked pretty. And I knew she was using the products she was selling exclusively and I knew I wanted to try them.
I reached out to my friend who was selling the product for her input on the company and her opinion on the product. Of course she loved it and had rave reviews of the company! But in true me fashion, I needed to find out for myself. So I discussed this new business idea with Jon, did my typical internet research and product review search and purchased my own set of 3D lashes to try out! They came in the mail along with a couple of samples my friend sent me to try.
I tried them out the next morning while applying my makeup. I was truly skeptical because I was going to have to LOVE them if I was going to sell them. That first morning I only applied the 3D lash to one eye, and I used my regular mascara for the other eye. Wow! What a difference I saw. I ran some errands that day and kept looking in the mirror thinking how silly my lopsided eye’s looked! I spent a few days mulling over this new business venture and mainly trying to convince myself that people wouldn’t think this was just another selling scheme.
How I made the decision:
I’d been using the mascara for about a week. I liked it, I felt pretty, but I wasn’t sold yet. Then one day in a rush to get ready for work I skipped the 3D lashes and applied my regular drugstore mascara. I got to work, looked in the mirror and gasped! Man, I looked bad! Not terrible, but my pretty awake eyes I had become accustomed to with my new lengthy 3D lashes were not there! It was then that I truly realized the difference and the value these two little black tubes of magic had given me! I signed up that night to sell the product.
I don’t want to talk you into something you that will waste your money, you will regret buying, or you will never use. And fortunately with Younique I won’t have to!
What is it?
Younique is an all natural make-up and skin care line. They sell makeup and skin care products at prices similar to MAC, Ulta, Clinique and Mary Kay. I have personally tried all these brands and am comfortable paying the comparable cost Younique has for their products. I love that their products are all natural and safe for sensitive skin.
What do I love about Younique?
  • Their honesty: If you go to Younique’s product website they (as most companies do) have the ingredients for each product listed on the site. But Younique takes it a step further, they give a simple descriptive definition of each ingredient in the product (because who really has the time to look up what all those foreign terms mean?!

 

  • No Autoship: One of the most annoying features of many direct sale companies is the Autoship feature. If I want to buy something, I want to buy it when I want it not because they want to make sure they are going to make another sale off of me. Younique has no Autoship requirement. So you want to try the lashes? Great, But if you don’t need to buy again for 2 months, no problem. Come on back when you run out and we will hook you up! And in the meantime, don’t worry about your credit card being charged or some unnecessary product showing up on your doorstep to frustrate you!
  • It’s a useful product: I don’t know about you but I wear make-up everyday. I don’t leave the house without at least a little bit of foundation, some powder, a line of eye liner and a wisp of mascara. So to buy a product that I actually can say I will use is really appealing to me.
Have you heard of Younique before? Are you interested yet? Do you want to try the 3D lashes for yourself? If you answered yes to any of these questions then stop into my online store or contact me to host your own party and get all of your own host benefits!
I plan to review each product Younique offers so check back frequently to see my honest opinions and thoughts of the Younique product line!
