Allow me to preface everything in this post by first saying, I am NOT a beauty blogger, nor do I deem myself a beauty expert. However, I am a consumer that has been purchasing makeup for the last 30 years. That makes me an expert on ME and on what I like!
So, when I was approached by Emily Guffey, a Younique Presenter to review the Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes, I jumped on the opportunity. I'm a product junkie and I love being put on to a new product that I've never heard of or probably wouldn't purchase based on the lack of familiarity.
So I graciously accepted this beautifully packaged mascara. It's like NOTHING I've ever used before. And the entire process of using it is an experience. Let me explain how you apply it:
First, you apply a thin coat of your own regular mascara as a base. Any kind will do. I'm a fan of L'Oreal mascaras, so those are what I use.
Then you apply a coat of the Moodstruck Transplanting gel. And IMMEDIATELY following while WET, apply the Moodstruck Natural Fibers.
The part about immediately and wet are extremely important. Let's just say that the first time I tried this product that I failed to do that part. It was like I was brushing tiny little feathery hairs into my eyes. I knew I had to have done something very wrong. So, after a few more tries and probably around a week later, I feel like I pretty much know how to properly apply it. You have to do one eye at a time, have all applicators ready and move through it reasonably fast. I really like the end results when applied properly. I think after you actually get the hang of the application process, you can apply it quickly. Because it really is all about technique.
A problem that I initially had was when I was applying the fibers too dry was the falling or flaking of the fibers onto my under eye area. But again, this all has to do with perfecting your own technique. Now, would I recommend this product? Not to the regular woman. But I HIGHLY recommend this to the lady who LOVES makeup and is always in search of the latest and greatest new product!

It's funny you should mention this mascara. On Friday a guy I know gave me his wife's card as his wife is a Younique Mascara consultant. I was intrigued by the idea and after your review I will most certainly give it a try. Thanks for the review.ReplyDelete
I had never heard of it until recently. Or, maybe I've just been overlooking it. But I'm glad I had the opportunity to try it!Delete
I saw this mascara and was curious about, but since my eyes are sensitive I have to stick with mascara's for sensitive eyes. Did you see a big difference in your lashes after applying it. Is it for sensitive eyes.ReplyDelete
I did notice a significant difference. I don't know how sensitive your eyes are to recommend if this would be a good product for you. I have occasionally itchy, watery allergy eyes. And sometimes mascaras do irritate. But it's never been really an affliction. I've been using this product for a week and once I learned how to properly apply, I haven't had any problems -- thus far.Delete
I shall take this as your recommendation for L'Oreal mascaras as I am sadly in need of a new one. Thanks!ReplyDelete
Any of the Voluminous ones are my go to's!Delete
