I started hearing about this mascara a little while ago on Facebook. People I know were posting about it and I really wasn’t sure exactly what was so ‘younique’ about it at all. So when I had an opportunity to try the product, I thought, “why not?”
Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes is a mascara system that utilizes fibers to create length. The idea of using fibers is not totally original as Imju Fiberwig and other companies like L’oreal and MAC have previously released mascaras using “fibers” for lengthening the appearance of lashes. The difference is that Younique has a two-part system. When you order one of their mascaras, you actually get two tubes of product: One is a gel that you apply first so the fibers have something to adhere to. And the second tube contains the actual fibers that you apply similarly to the way you apply mascara.
The mascara is water-resistant which is a big plus for me. Also, interestingly enough, this product is 100% natural. The fibers are actually made of green tea!
I wasn’t sure how the results would be with the Younique mascara since I’m pretty happy with how my lashes look with my regular mascara. I actually have pretty long eyelashes (especially for an Asian girl), and with my trusty Shu Uemura eyelash curler and my favorite waterproof Maybelline mascara, my lashes be-a-poppin’! But, I knew that I had nothing to lose and only more potential lash fabulousness to gain so off I went to test this stuff out.
I tried this daily over a period of four days and each day yielded similar results.
There are four steps in the application technique:
- Apply a thin coat of your normal mascara.
- Apply one coat of the Younique Transplanting Gel.
- Apply the Younique Natural fibers.
- Apply one more coat of the Transplating Gel to seal the fibers.
Is this a lot of steps? Well it depends on the person and the occasion I’d say. Some people will do whatever it takes to have great lashes and if that means 20 steps, then so be it. You know that saying, “There’s nothing like a girl with great lashes!” Okay maybe I just made that up but there is nothing like a girl with great lashes.
Here are the before, during and after pictures of my results with the Younique Mascara……..
1) Lashes curled, No Mascara
2) One coat of Maybelline Colossal WP Mascara
3) With Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes
Here is a close up picture of my lashes:
There you have it folks! The pictures speak for themselves. It’s nice to have an alternative to wearing false lashes or having eyelash extensions. And while I may not do this every day, I love that with a few quick steps, my lashes can go from pretty good, to redonkulous .
