.:Review–Younique:.

** I was provided with products to review, but the opinions are my own.

Have you heard about Younique’s Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes? I feel like they are all over the internet all of the sudden – rave reviews and parties – and was thrilled when Jana asked me if I would be interested in trying it, along with two of the Moodstruck Minerals Pigment Powder.

I have to admit; I’ve always been a little skeptical of products like these. I wasn’t sure if I would really be able to tell a difference in the way my lashes looked. Here are what my lashes looked like with regular mascara on.

As you can see, I’ve got fairly decent lashes already. But then I tried the 3D lashes and this was the result.

Definitely a difference!

Now here’s a side by side comparison of my eyes with the Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes on the left and regular mascara on the right.

You can see how the 3D Fiber Lashes make my eye appear more open. I wouldn’t have thought it would be that big of a difference!

The Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes not only work well, but they are incredibly simple to apply. You can choose whether you start with a coat of your regular mascara or not. After that, you apply the Transplanting Gel, then brush on the fibers, finishing with another coat of the Transplanting Gel. I found it easiest to do one eye at a time, because you want to be sure to apply the fibers while the Transplanting Gel is still wet. Simple, right?

The fibers are natural, and I was happy with how well they appeared throughout the day, and also how easily they washed off at the end of the day.

I also really loved using the mineral pigments. The colors I got were Corrupted, Feisty, and a small sample of Dignified. These pigments go on so easily, and they really make an impact. I received so many compliments on my choice of eye color, and I have to say that the biggest fans were my three girls!

Here is a little bit of info about the pigments:

Moodstruck Minerals Pigment Powder are 100% natural, chemical-free, mineral-based pigment powders, free of talc, oils, preservatives, perfumes, synthetic dyes, and parabens. They can be used wet or dry, used as eye shadows or eye liners. The color will stay all day and blend beautifully, they are also able to be layered to achieve a beautiful color.

My eyes have always been my husband’s favorite feature on me, and I think he is going to be loving my new look!
