Okay, if you are like I was prior to trying out Younique, you have a basic idea of what you think it is like…and it isn’t pretty. I’m in a ton of makeup groups on Facebook and it seems that, for the most part, most of the girls on there have the same idea of Younique (whether they’ve used it or not) – Younique is all about SPIDER LASHES that do not look good. If that’s your viewpoint on Younique right now, prepare yourself…because I’m about to blow your mind.
When I thought about Younique, I thought fiber mascara and nothing else. I didn’t even know that they have a wide range of products, including some pretty beautiful pigments! Even with all my preconceived notions of Younique, I was excited and open to the opportunity to review the actual product and see for myself (thanks to Kim Gaudi whose information is below!).
When I opened the box from Kim, my first thought was, “Well, this doesn’t look too scary.” Then when I saw two different steps for the mascara, I worried that it would be complicated (which caused me to drag my feet at first on trying it out). Let me give you a little teaser though to where this review is heading – It’s not complicated.
I was sent three different eye shadow pigments – Confident Pigment, Irresistible Pigment, and Infatuated Pigment (all in neutral colors that I love!).
She also sent two different blush pigments – Sweet Blusher and Stunning Blusher (seriously, look how gorgeous those colors are!).
If you are like me, you see the colors in the jars and you think, “Those look pretty, but where are some swatches?” I have those for you too! (From LEFT to RIGHT, these are Sweet Blusher, Stunning Blusher, Confident Pigment, Irresistible Pigment, and Infatuated Pigment.)
And now, for the piéce de résistance…the Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes!
Now for those of you who don’t know how the fiber lashes work, you initially put your own favorite mascara on, then put a layer of the Younique gel mascara. Before it dries, you put on the fiber mascara, and seal it with another coat of the gel mascara. This can be repeated for desired results.
Lucky for me, I was blessed with naturally pretty long lashes, here is the BEFORE picture on top and the AFTER picture on bottom. Personally, the biggest different I noticed for me is that my eyelashes appeared to be thicker and I really loved the finished results. You may not be able to tell a big difference in the volume of my lashes in this picture, but it was definitely noticeable in real life! Do you see anything missing from the bottom picture? Maybe the “spider lash” notion that has given Younique a bad rap? I didn’t have that issue AT ALL.
For the finished look, I’m wearing some of my own makeup mixed with Irresistible Pigment in the crease, Infatuated Pigment as my eyeliner, and Sweet Blusher on my cheeks!
I definitely learned throughout this process that you can not trust the preconceived notions about products. Try them for yourself, you may find that you love them! I won’t laugh about Younique mascara anymore, I know that!
