Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lash Mascara Before & After

I always loved my long, dark eyelashes. Mascara always seemed to clump and look spidery on me depending on the brand and I never really committed to one. This was sort of a last step in my makeup routine (which was also lacking and a main reason why I signed up as a presenter to try Younique).

I also thought it was totally unnecessary and ridiculous to buy a product such as this, but after seeing results, I am totally sold on it! Younique's Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lash Mascara is super easy to apply and the results can range from a subtle lash boost to a Vegas-style pair of eyes. You know what I'm talking about!

The top photo below is the before and the bottom photo below are the results from ONE application. You can repeat as much as you want to keep building them out longer and fuller, but this one application looked great. 

Even though this is what I would consider a high-end price at $29 for the set (one tube with fibers and one tube with the transplanting gel), I would say it's well worth the cost and eliminates the need for false lashes. Ultimately, I decided to treat myself and invest in my makeup for a more dramatic look.

Younique Business Opportunity

It's been pretty crazy around my household as I prepare to return to work tomrrow after four months of maternity leave. I hardly had any time to think about much else other than caring for my daughter. And that includes any makeup. I maybe went out a handful of times in the last few months and applied my usual makeup. I realized it was time to reorder and I was about to order my same old jar of Bare Minerals.

Instead, I texted my friend and coworker who sells Younique. She had joined several months ago and I was interested in their mascara. After chatting with her, I decided to order the Touch Mineral Pressed Powder Foundation in Scarlet. It is about the same size as my Bare Minerals and although it is $6 more, I know I am supporting not only Younique, but also my friend's business, too.

After receiving it in the mail, I knew it was a great product. I liked the coverage it offered and that I didn't need to "buff" with a brush as I had with Bare Minerals. A week later, I saw her post about her "pool-proof" mascara and I knew I had to bite. She had also been posting about her lip stain, too, which was a really pretty color on her. I went back to the Younique site and went to look at how much they each were. The mascara was $29, however, the results are absolutely stunning! And then there was the lip stain, which sells for $22. Now, I'm a minimalist that like s to choose quality in combination with price.

After buying about four tubes of Burt's Bees as my only product I apply on my lips for $5 a pop, it's basically the same price. But my coworker's lips looked just as good up to eight hours later. Uh, what?! My Burt's Bees only lasted ten minutes if I was lucky. It was time to grow up and buy a product for my grown up lips. Just as I was about to place my order, I decided to join my friend's team and purchase the Presenter's Kit for $99, which includes a lip stain, mascara, three tubs of eyeshadow, three eye brushes, and moisturizer, plus much more. I thought, "Why not, for just a little more?"

I'll get a 20% off discount on the products and can even build up a team of others interested in purchasing or selling the products, as well. I really didn't have anything to lose, so I'm excited to see where this goes. Younique is a young company, founded in 2012, and now has over 200,000 presenters with a mission to uplift, empower, and validate women across the globe. I can buy into that way of thinking!
