You might be thinking: “Hold the phone…this isn’t a recipe or workout?” You’re right. I don’t post many beauty finds, I’d usually post something like this on my Facebook page. But this post was going to be too long for a status, so I figured I’d post it here instead.

Disclaimer: This is a non-sponsored review. I was given the mascara to try. I received no compensation. I do not sell the product.

I had to post about this, as like many of you, I’ve been added to Facebook groups about some amazing mascara that’s supposed to do a “makeover” on your eyelashes. Its often referred to as 3D mascara. Some of your friends may even be selling it.

Even though I try not to be, I’m always skeptical of products that are sold in what I describe as an “MLM” fashion.  If you haven’t already guessed, the product I’m talking about is the Younique 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara. I was initially intrigued, cause lets be honest…who doesn’t want longer and thicker lashes?

Another feature I learned about the product was that its gluten free, vegan, cruelty free, and does not contain any harsh chemicals. With that in mind, it was the main reason I decided to give it a try.  I also wanted to see if it was worth all the hype, and money.

The before and after pictures I’ve come across were pretty amazing, but I was still skeptical, as I wondered if those results could be achieved at home, and by a person (like myself) having no professional makeup artist experience.

I may not be the best person to review this product, as my natural lashes are pretty good! While they are blonde and I have to wear mascara to even see them, they’re a good length. I do struggle with the thickness of them (they are getting a touch thinner with age).

Here’s me with no mascara. If you squint you can sorta see my lashes ;)

Sometimes simple is delicious. That’s exactly the case with any sort of crisp or crumble. Healthy Blueberry Crisp is one of my favorite things. Pies and crisps are my favorite desserts to make with fresh fruit. But in my house, crisps happen a lot more often than pies, simply because they are quick and easy […]

Black Bean Summer Salad

Sometimes the best things are created from what you have on hand. This was the case when I made this delicious salad. I wanted to make a quick salad for lunch, but didn’t want it to be lettuce based. I always have some canned beans on hand, and I love black beans because they taste […]

Cocoa Banana Muffins

Ripe bananas. Its always a challenge deciding what to do with them. I usually freeze them and use in smoothies, or make a loaf of banana bread. This time, I wanted to do a muffin, but have it taste different than traditional banana bread, and can you really go wrong with adding chocolate? I know, […]
