Like many of you I have seen Younique mascaras everywhere. I always wanted to try them.
Someone I know went to an event and received Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes in her welcome bag.
She decided to give the mascara for me to try!
Younique was founded in 2012 by a brother and sister team and together they built a successful brand.
Younique has provided women around the world with an opportunity to become part of a global team that promotes and sells the products with a multi-level compensation and royalty plan. The company is entering new markets and currently focusing on Mexico and Germany.
What makes Younique different?
Instead of applying a single mascara product, Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes is a kit that contains a tube with fiber material and a tube with a gel that the fibers adhere to. The products are offered in a convenient pouch for storage or travel.
The Transplant gel is initially applied to the lashes like typical mascara. While it is wet, the fibers are applied using a mascara type wand to add length and volume. The gel is reapplied as a final step to seal the fibers. The process can be repeated until you reach the desired length and volume.
The fibers contain vitamins C and E to condition the natural lashes. The fibers also contain anti-oxidants, and softening agents. Fibers are applied to the lashes to build volume and length and are primarily made of rayon. Rayon is derived from plant cellulose and is environmentally friendly and biodegradable. The fibers are safe to apply around the eye area, hypoallergenic, and should not cause irritation. The gel is formulated with iron oxide to product a rich black color and is also hypoallergenic.
Overall, the product was designed to improve the condition of natural lashes while it’s worn. It is designed to last all day and easily be removed.
Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes can be used in lieu of false lashes.
I personally want lashes that are noticeable from a distance with both length and volume.
I noticed a significant difference in the length of my lashes but I would like more volume.
After several attempts using the product and using different techniques from applying the fibers with my favorite mascara instead of the transplant gel to applying several coats of the product., there was a definite length increase but not much for and the volume.
When attempting to build more volume and length, the appearance of the lashes became straggly and clumpy.
I did struggle with the fibers falling out during application but this was lessened with a very light dabbing application. Excess fibers on the wand constantly fell onto my skin. Fibers may also fall out during wear if not thoroughly sealed with the gel. Achieving a proper application takes time and attention to detail.
I thought the gel product was like typical mascara and it had a pretty effect on my lashes, achieving length and separating lashes. The gel left my lashes looking delicate, intensely black, and shiny. I thought the gel was a good mascara product on its own.
The length achieved was better than average but I did notice the length of the lashes shrunk after several hours of wear.
I also found throughout the day the mascara fibers would fall off my lashes, leaving me with sparse looking lashes.
What works for one person may not work for another. We all begin with a different canvas and create something unique.
My expectation and taste in mascaras may be different than yours.
However, if what I describe as my style and expectations are similar to yours, Younique’s Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes may not be for you.
Both the gel and fibers are formulated with effective ingredients and I did like the length and deep color this gave my lashes but I found applying several applications was time consuming and I personally would have liked a bit more volume.
I would probably save this mascara for special occasions instead of using it as my daily mascara.
