A Real Talk Review from a Cynic: Younique 3D Fiber Lash Mascara.


I cant believe it.....

I saw all these post both loving and bashing this lash system, and yes this a "system," that I had mixed feelings about the whole thing. As a matter of fact I had been contacted a few times before and I always sweetly declined. (as nice as possible, obvi!! I aint about burning no bridges yall) I think the problem with the brand is also why its soooo popular, is its maj-A in your face social media presence.

The pure skeptic in me was.. well, skeptical. The before and afters looked to good to be true, but oh no, its the real deal my friends. I LOVE IT!!! omg. ITs really good. I just cant stop talking about it. 

So this sweetheart named Brandi reached out to me and asked if i'd like to try this for review. She really believed in the products and I decided to give it a try. She has just started uploading short videos to her Facebook, and is honestly so sweet. She's also on Instagram, and has a Younique store front. When I had questions or problems she was so helpful. 

So lets talk about this mascara. It comes in a re-useable case thats looks a lot like a eyeglasses case. Inside there are 2 tubes... oh yes you read that right yall, 2 TUBES! The long one is a transforming gel and the shorter one is the fibers.

Transforming Gel
So you can apply a coat of your mascara first, but I usually dont. So first you apply the gel, then the fibers, then the gel again. Afterwards it is very important that you comb your lashes out. I had experienced some of the fibers falling down, I asked Brandi about this and she helped out with some tips. First of all only do one eye at a time, and make sure that you coat the fibers with the gel again. 


Out of the days I wore this, 90% of the time i didnt experience and smudging. Which leads me to believe that when it does smudge thats do to me not coating the fibers.

Ive seen some of the memes that make this mascara look craZy. You can achieve this look, if you want by applying more and more coats. Embrace your inner Drag Queen, 80's Housewife, or Tammy Fae yall. You do you. BUT all that being said, I prefer just one coat. The one coat gives me long extended lashes that are fun and flirty without the use of false lashes. I DONT DO FALSIES yall. I have a bad history with false lashes and glue. I love this so I can get that look without the falsies. 

My favorite use of this mascara system is in place of falsies. I love doing full on eye looks, and those looks look better with your big girl lashes on. My second favorite look with this is a minimal makeup, lips and lashes type day.

1. NO Glue!!
2. (after you get the hang of it) Ease of Use
3. Portable
4. Big lashes
5. Tammy Fae Lashes
6. Easy Removal
7. Limited to No Smudging
8. No Repeatedly Purchasing Fake Lashes.

1. Really should have come with a lash comb
2. Tammy Fae Lashes.
3. Lashes Touch My Eyeglasses.

I hope this review helps, considering it comes from someone who automatically hates errthang. lol
