- Product Review: Younique 3D Fiber Lash Mascara -
When it comes to eyelashes and mascara, at the risk of sounding braggy, I count myself blessed to have fairly long lashes and to have found a mascara I love. So, when I’ve seen the craze about fiber lashes I never jumped at the chance to try.
But, when Melissa Martin contacted me about trying Younique’s Moonstruck 3D Fiber Lash Mascara (www.theselashesarereal.com), I decided to see what it was all about. I reasoned that if it can actually make my lashes look longer, then it should definitely help others with shorter lengths. So, I tried the product and couldn’t be more pleased with the result!
The mascara is all-natural, hypoallergenic, chemical free, and cruelty free which is great! Melissa suggested watching a YouTube video to see how it was applied before trying myself. So, I searched for “how to” videos and got the gist (surprisingly there were so many to choose from). You can see my lashes above with one coat of my waterproof Mary Kay mascara (I recommend it to anyone) followed by a picture using the Younique 3D Fiber Lash Mascara. It wouldn’t do any good to show you my lashes with no mascara as they are so blonde you can barely see them. :)
What I loved the most is I can still use my waterproof mascara first followed by the transplanting gel and fibers. My eyes water so easily that I was concerned about the fiber mascara coming off which I know now isn’t a problem. You can see what each brush looks like above. The transplant gel is the wand that looks like a regular mascara brush and the fibers (actual small fibers on the wand) are the straighter wand.
Ok, so how does the two product system work? After reading the instructions and watching a YouTube video, I’ll walk you through the process. I started with one coat on each eye of my Mary Kay waterproof mascara. Next I took the transplanting gel and coated my lashes with the transplanting gel. Using the fiber wand, I then applied the fibers to my lashes focusing on the ends to add length. You can see the fibers holding onto the lashes and actually increasing the length as you apply. One tip from Melissa was to close my eye to really get the ends. For the final step, I applied the transplanting gel after the fibers to seal them on.
Voila! Surprising to me, my lashes were fuller and longer, as you can see. I really thought I’d try it once to show you all and then probably only use it for special occasions if it worked… but I definitely plan on using this product weekly! Probably not everyday as I’m sure my clients for my 9-5 would wonder why I all of a sudden have went more glam everyday in the office, but for someone who isn’t happy with your everyday lashes the fiber lash mascara can change your daily look.
I love the added fullness of my lashes with Younique and once I tried it the first time, I learned it’s a fairly quick process. I even went to the gym later in the day after the above picture and was pleased that the fibers didn’t come off. When I wiped my face during my workout I only saw one small fiber on the towel, probably a result of me missing it with the gel.
The pros include all of the points above like how full and long my lashes became and the simplicity of putting on the mascara, however, I’ll list the few cons I noticed for fairness sake. I want to note that even with these cons, I will definitely still use the fiber lash mascara. But the cons will help anyone buying the product to know what to expect. When applying the lashes, like I pointed out, you are putting fibers on your lashes. The first time I applied them I did have a stray fiber or two fall on my skin, but not the second time I applied the product. I also had a small fiber get in my eye at one point, but practice applying kept that from happening again. And, the fibers are soft so there wasn’t any major eye irritation. The second gel application should keep them all in place. Using the 3D Fiber Lash mascara does add an additional 2 minutes or so to your eye routine. That’s a conservative number because once I got the process down it went really quickly. And, the only other con I can come up with (which may not really be a negative) is that you can’t purchase the Younique product at the beauty counter or at a store. Purchasing the product directly from a Younique team member may actually be preferred for many of you. No worrying about parking and taking the time to run into a store, and ordering online sends it straight to your door.
Would I recommend Younique 3D Fiber Lash Mascara to others? Absolutely! Whether you want something to add length and volume on a daily basis or just for Special Occasions, the mascara is light and easy and doesn’t weigh down your eyelids like false lashes or require a salon visit like lash extensions. The process is easy and the results are evident. And, at $29 you can save versus lash extensions.
