I am a mascara freak. I used to have super great lashes but after I had my daughter they seriously all fell out. It is so frustrating going from great lashes to nubs. My daughter seemingly stole them though because her lashes are super long. Basically, one of my most favorite mascaras ever was an asian fiber mascara but it is so hard to get my hands on that I gave up on it. It was also pretty hard to remove. I have been hearing so much buzz about the Younique 3D Fiber Mascara lately so I have been dying to give it a try. Presentation is everything to me and when I saw the case (YES, CASE!!!) that this arrived in I was even more excited. I mean, this mascara is housed in a case that is nicer than the ones that hold my sunglasses! This mascara is a two step process so inside the case are two tubes of product. One is the Transplanting Gel and the other is the Natural Fibers. The fibers are short little hair-like things that attach onto the end of your lashes. So, the way this instructs you to apply Youniqe 3D Fiber mascara is simple. You apply 1 coat of your regular mascara (for this post I used Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam) and then you apply one coat of the Transplanting Gel and before it dries apply the Natural Fibers. Seal those fibers into place with another coat of the Transplanting Gel. It is a lot of different little steps and was interesting to get through the first go round. I am used to applying multiple coats of mascara but not while using 3 different tubes. The next few times I used it I already knew what to expect so I wasn’t all thumbs. As you can see in the photos below there is a drastic difference. In the first picture I have applied all the steps on the left and did NOTHING to the right. Same for the 2nd picture, I am only looking up so that you can get a better view of the awesomeness. The final picture above gives a really good look at the actual fibers. You can see that they sort of piled up onto themselves and actually created something that is almost identical to a natural lash look, but LONG. AND if you look closely you can see where my real lashes stop, which is about 3/4 of the way up. My daughter, who is 1, started reaching for my lashes. I guess they were waving hello at her! LOL I asked my husband if he thought my lashes looked longer and he was like “wow, yeah” and I then asked him if he noticed before I pointed it out and he said no… but he is a man. He doesn’t notice things like that.
So the results I achieved here was using 1 coat of regular mascara and one application of the Younique 3D Fiber mascara. You probably don’t need me to tell you this but it is AMAZING. Just look at the photos if you want the proof. I gave you all a sneak peek on Instagram/Facebook/Twitter and a few of you asked about the removal process. I know why you asked… every time I have purchased a nicer fiber lash mascara (and I have tried several) it is so hard to remove you basically pull all your lashes out. This one is super easy. I actually removed it all COMPLETELY with a Neutrogena Makeup Remover Wipe.
I should mention that I actually HATED the Too Faced Better Than False Lashes mascara. It was so sticky and gross. With this, I applied my mascara, the gel, the fibers and then the gel again. It really was only one more step than I do on a regular basis. I typically put on 3 coats of mascara and I got better results than I would have with mascara alone.
PROS: It really works. My lashes look way longer. Easy to use.
CONS: The fiber application process got a little messy. There are so many of those fibers on the brush that when I ran it onto my lashes some fell off onto my cheek. Once those tiny fibers were dropped it was hard to get them off. I would recommend covering your cheek with a tissue during application and also not apply foundation and such until after the mascara application.
