Younique 3D Fiber Mascara *

As you may of heard there has been a huge hype about Younique 3D Fiber Mascara! 
The American company who are literally a day away from launching in the UK (November 1st 2014) have taken social media by a storm! 
You may have seen the "before and after" photos on social media as women post pictures of their eyelashes with their "everyday routine" compared to wonderfully long lashes achieved by the Younique 3D Fiber Mascara so when I was contacted back in September to review it for my my blog of course, how could I not say yes?
I was always skeptical when I saw such photos but honestly, I am impressed! 

"Our best selling product, 3D Fiber Lashes dramatically enhances and magnifies the appearance of your own lashes."

So. First off: the packaging. I have to be honest and say that it does look like I should put my specs or sunnies in it. However the hard shelled carrying case includes the two tubes - the Transplanting Gel, which sounds horrifying and the Natural Fibers. The case is a great idea and does beat that crappy plastic packaging that drug store mascaras come in.
So. After reading the instructions thoroughly for once here is a sum of what is to be done.
1) Apply a thin coat of your current favourite mascara. I used Clinique - High Impact Mascara. This is one of my current favourites but not the top as I find that using defining mascara as opposed to volumizing/plumping mascara works best.
2) Once your mascara has dried, apply a coat of the Moodstruck Transplanting Gel. I was actually expecting a clear gel so when I pulled out the wand -to my delight- it was a black gel.
3) While the Transplanting Gel is still wet take the Natural Fibres and apply to lashes. This for me is the most horrifying part. A wand full of fluff near my eye just disturbs me deeply!

4) Finally apply another layer of Transplanting Gel to lock in the fibers so they don't end up falling onto your cheeks.

Another tip that I was told was that "after applying the first coat of gel and fibers, give your lashes a quick blast with a hair dryer from the bottom - blowing them upwards. This will do several things – a) curl your lashes, b) point all the fibers in the same direction and c) will blow off any excess fibers".
The directions say that you can repeat the last two steps as many times as you want to achieve the results you desire, however I had applied two coats and even found the first coat enough! 
Left: Two coats of normal mascara  |  Right: One coat of 3D Fiber Mascara

And what do you know, applying...fuzz directly to my eye was not as horrifying as I thought it was going to be.

I am extremely happy with the results though it does take a little bit longer to apply than regular mascara but also takes less time than applying falsies AND (I think) the outcome is better! I find that they are noticeably bigger and 'fuller'. 
I LOVE this product and would recommend that you try it for yourself!

  1. I was pleasantly surprised with this mascara as well. The only problem is that it can get slightly clumpy if you don't apply extremely carefully. :] // itsCarmen.com ☼ ☯

    1. Carmen, try the hairdryer trick if you haven't already - it made such a difference for me!
