I was approached by a seller of a beauty line called Younique. Whether she knew I was a mascara connoisseur or not, I am not sure, but I couldn't have been more excited when she told me about the product she wanted to send me to review.
I'll be the first to admit that I am terrible at putting on make up. I am pretty knowledgeable about make up, the various brands and products and how you're supposed to apply the products. Unfortunately, I cannot seem to translate that to my own face. Seriously, I just learned how to apply bottom eyeliner about a year ago. This is probably why I've always been in love with mascara (and lipstick) because you really can't screw it up. (Unless you give yourself spider lashes, which is another story for another day.)
I also think long, luscious lashes are very beautiful on women and makes lots of other make up unnecessary. For that reason, I've tried almost all of the mascara brands Sephora, Ulta, Macy's + Target has to offer. *Dior's formula is far too wet, stay away!* Some brands are great for length and make your lashes look longer, while other brands are great at adding fullness. It's very rare that a product does both...or so I thought.
Younique 3D Fiber Lash Mascara offers you the best of both worlds. There's hardly reason for false lashes when using this product and it's dual brush technique. Two brushes and three steps are all it takes to get you the perfect lashes you've always dreamed of...and I know you've been dreaming of them.
Inside of the case. A soft velveteen material lines the case, with two leather straps holding the precious cargo: the mother of all mascaras. Two tubes, the transplanting gel and the natural fibers.
Step 1: I always start with Dior's Diorshow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum on bare lashes before I put any mascara on. It's Dior's only lash primer and creates a base for your lashes while working to enhance growth and strength. You'll immediately notice extra length upon application. I even put some on at night after I shower for a little conditioning.
Step 2: Apply the Transplanting Gel to your lashes. Of course, if you're not using a lash primer, this is step 1. The gel adds length to the lashes while separating them.
Step 3: Apply the Natural Fibers immediately after the Transplanting Gel. I suggest doing one eye at a time because the gel needs to be wet enough for the fibers to grab on. The fibers add length and thickness to your lashes. After you apply the fibers reapply the transplanting gel to lock in and seal the fibers.
