Younique 3D Fiber Lashes Review + Giveaway


So I have to tell you about Younique. I think everyone knows the brand. It's everywhere! I have to admit, I'm no longer into the "makeup" scene anymore. I used to be a big makeup fanatic. But as the years went on, I hated the feeling of foundation and powder on my face. I started to only gear myself toward the love of eye makeup. So now, that is what I use. I don't leave the house usually without my brow powder, eyeshadow, eyeliner, and of course, my mascara.

Most of the makeup I had used over the years was full of chemicals. Like all the popular brands out there. But as time went on, we changed our lifestyle and I also started to change my makeup. Going for organic eyeshadow, brow powder and eyeliners...but never got to give up my mascara. I have always said if there was one thing I would take on a deserted island, it would be my mascara haha.

And so now, Younique came along into my life, thanks to my best friend {& sorority sister} in the entire world, Rory. She introduced me to Younique's mascara and product line. I have to say, I was very drawn to this mascara. After seeing countless photos and posts about how it transforms your lashes, I wanted to try it for myself.

The 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara comes in a beautiful padded case. It's very sturdy and protects the contents inside great. You also get an information paper on how to apply the mascara. And then the most important part. You get one tube of the transplanting gel and one tube of the natural fibers.

 




Younique has a lot of great qualities. It is paraben free, carcinogen free, chemical free, organic, cruelty free, gluten free, & hypoallergenic. What more could you ask for in a makeup? Those are some great reasons to start with. But does it really work? I put it to the test.

This is my {very tired, my toddlers don't sleep} eyes without anything on them. No eyeshadow, no mascara {and I sadly forgot to do my brows..excuse the mess}:


Now this is with my everyday mascara {They're Real}:


And now with Younique 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara {one coat}:

 

It seems to be a noticeable difference. How it works is that you can first curl your eyelashes for 10 seconds each eye with an eyelash curler. I have to admit, I have never in my life used one before. I went out and purchased one just for this product because I heard it worked better for more noticeable results.

The next step is optional. Some people do this step and others don't. I haven't tried myself what my outcome was without the mascara on first but I was told it works very well either way. But if you choose to, just apply a light layer of your own everyday mascara. Let that dry. Then take the transplanting gel and apply that to your eyelashes like you would mascara. Make sure you are applying a nice solid coat. Quickly take the fibers wand and brush them onto the wet gel. Apply them to the tips of your lashes. If you apply them too far toward your eye, the fibers start to fall off. So to avoid that, just stick with the tips and you should have no problems. You will start to notice your lashes looking longer. Apply the transplanting gel once more to secure the fibers. Repeat as many times as desired. You must do each eye separately in order to make sure the gel doesn't dry too quickly.


Would I buy this product an use it daily? The answer is yes! I would totally buy this and use it daily. Like I said above, I have to get more used to it but overall, I really do like it. I love the dark, thick eyelash look. I always strive for that when I  wear eye makeup. This makes it so you don't even need to wear much. However, it would probably look amazing with a dark smoky eye. I need to try that out next. Perfect for a date night. Get your sexy on with Younique!

Are you as excited as I am about these? Like these are my real lashes. No extensions, no fake lashes... just mine using the 3D Fiber Lashes. Now, I know the average price of mascara runs around $15 a tube. I pay about $22 for mine at Ulta. And I do not get any results as awesome as these. So the great news is that Younique doesn't cost much more and gives you great results. Not to mention that it's so much more natural for your eyes than the chemicals in other mascaras. I know we talked about this above. 
So for only $29 you get everything you need to have amazing lashes.

If you can't wait, check out the website and order yours today. Also if you aren't sure or have any other questions, Rory will be very happy to help and answer any questions or concerns you may have. Like I said she is my best friend... she is awesome...you will love her :)

"My Favorite Quote"


Happy almost-Monday everyone! Welcome back. I'm joining in again for another week with Miss Monica from I Heart Grade 3 and her Weekly Summer Link Up. And this week's prompt is one I am going to love talking about. Why? Because it's "My Favorite Quote"

No joke, if you know me, you know this has been my favorite quote {and life message} since I first heard it back in good ol' 1999. I was a senior in high school that year and my all time favorite tv show was Popular. Yes, I loved that show. I still love that show. Bought the season on dvd and watched them millions of times in my mid 20's. And now it's on YouTube which is pretty cool.

Cancel My Subscription, I'm Over Your Issues!

The scene is infamous. The outcast Sam McPherson, gets a confidence boost. Shows up to her {about to be} step sister's, the ever popular Brooke McQueen, party to tell her off! I love it. 

Yes, if you know me, you know I put this as my favorite quote on everything. It is so right too. For years, I put up with so much crap and so many mean and hurtful people. People who only want to use you or people who fake friendships. That is why when I first heard this in season 1, episode 2...I have never forgotten. It really says what I should have said to those people a long time ago.

Now, I don't want to play the "mean girls" game anymore. So if you tick me off, you can cancel my subscription.... cause I'm done! I've been learning to let those type of people go a lot easier once I say this to myself. So thank you WB for airing this show to boost my confidence level a bit.

Now, doesn't that just feel better to drag away the negative people and the ones who bring you down? Not to mention, it is pretty clever! I find it comical.

Watch the clip below to see it in action :)


So what is your favorite quote? Is it from a movie, a book...the man who mows his lawn in his underware living next door? Leave a comment below!
