Younique 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara – My Honest Review

by Kristine on September 2, 2014

in Beauty Products, Blog

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.

*See the bottom of the post for the GIVEAWAY!

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 😉

The regular mascara that I use on a daily basis is L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara. I’ve used it for years, and always gone back to it, even after trying the expensive Sephora brands. I’d say the higher end one I like is Dior Show. But its not cheap, at $31 per tube, and I found it would be gone within a month and a half as I typically apply more than one coat.

Here I am with regular mascara only (L’Oreal)

younique_mascara only

So alas, I had the Younique 3D mascara in hand, and I said to myself…let see how this goes, as its in the same price range as the more expensive brands ($35).

Although it seems like there’s a lot of steps to putting on the 3D mascara, it actually goes very quickly. I should also mention, that normally, I normally would apply 2-3 coats of regular mascara, so I feel the time involved to apply the Younique is about the same. If you typically only apply 1 coat of mascara, then using the Younique, you’ll be adding on about 2-3 minutes to your regular makeup routine. I’m a busy mom like many of you are, but I would totally spend the extra 2 minutes if it would make my lashes look 5x better!

Here’s my after pic using the 3D mascara (I put it on the top lashes only)

Here’s a side-by-side shot:

younique side by side

Here’s another AFTER:

younique_final2

I’ll outline the steps I took to achieve the look in my Before & After above.

1) First you apply 1 coat of your regular mascara (any old cheap brand would do, as its just a base)
2) Then you apply 1 coat of the Younique gel (its black and resembles regular mascara)
3) Then you apply 1 coat of the Younique fibers (it looks like pieces of black fluff on a mascara wand)
4) Then you apply another coat of the Younique gel to seal it

If you’d like to see a YouTube video instead of how to apply it, view that here.

Removal

It comes of easily with soap and water, like regular mascara. But its more water-resistant than regular mascara.

These are the steps I followed to get the look above. I have gone on to add another coat of the fibers and gel to get a more dramatic look.

My Thoughts?

I’m happy with it! I even wore it to the waterslides, and it stayed put. I only had my head under the water a couple times for a few seconds though, and didn’t rub my eyes, so I doubt it would hold up the same if you actually went swimming. But it didn’t run down my face and have me looking like a raccoon!

I think it works much better than the mascaras in the higher price range (like the Dior Show I mentioned)

Its a great option if you don’t want to use something more invasive like Latisse, which grows new lashes. But I’ve read there can be side effects with that…and some of them serious.

I should also mention that I wear contacts and it doesn’t bother them at all. Typically when I wear false eyelashes, my eyes are red and burning within a couple of hours. Perhaps the lashes or the glue bother my contacts? So the 3D mascara is a great option to get rid of wearing false lashes. I do recommend though, that you put in your contact lenses after applying the 3D mascara.

I can’t attest to how it would work for gals with short lashes, as for me I found it helped the length a little, but I noticed it made them thicker.  I think if you had short lashes, you’d probably need to do 2 coats of the fibers to help build up the length.

Would I Buy It?

Yes, I would buy it. I’m going to see how long these tubes last me, and if they last a couple months at least, I can justify spending the extra $$.

How to Buy

I believe that you can only buy the Younique from somebody that sells it. My friend Amy gave me the product to try, so I’ll provide her info in case any of you want to purchase. It can ship to anywhere in Canada and the US.  There are other Yonique products in her online store, but I haven’t tried anything else aside from the 3D mascara.

    A hot mess. I WISH I had bought this on Amazon because I wouldn’t have spent as much and could possibly get a refund. The “fibers” end up all over your bathroom. Had to use 2 coats and an eyelash comb and it still looked like a bad application of a normal mascara. Although I’m sure I’ll get better, not worth the price. And as I am fair and a blonde, the black (only color available) looks REALLY fake.

    • Kara Soltez

      It is absolutely awful. Thankfully I didn’t use it long enough to experience some of the awful side effects some of you all are experiencing. I feel just awful for those losing their lashes and even getting infections. I’ve heard the fibers are actually clogging people’s tear ducts. I have a relative who is a presenter and I swear she is brainwashed by this company. I’m not exaggerating when I say she is not the same person she was before selling Younique. Part of her sales pitch is to try to convince women that, without makeup, they are not who they should aspire to be. I have to say, while I do put on makeup to go out of the house and think I look more finished with it on, my makeup has nothing to do with who I am as a person and what’s in my heart. Any company that preys on the insecurities of women to hawk their wares is disgusting in my book Their products are made in China for pennies on the dollar and are awful quality. If I am going to spend this much on makeup, I’m going to buy a prestige brand that is actually worth the money. Nothing about this product line is healthy, vegan, all natural or good for you.

    Hey there, have you ever tried out LimeLight by Alcone’s ONE step fiber lengthening mascara?? It’s only $20 and it lasts at least 3 months!! It is Vegan, Chemical free, leaping bunny certified, and absolutely amazing!! Just curious if it was something you might of checked out or reviewed??

  • Tia

    Thank you for your truthful review! They seemed to good to be real but I am believing it must be real it’s looked great on you! I think my eye color is very close to yours so I look forward to seeing your next reviews their products look AMAZING! – http://www.orpheum.ca/choosing-best-convertible-car-seat/

  • Dianna

    I have heard many cons lately to the Younique fiber lashes. I am being told they don’t stay on – the get in your eyes or the have fallen out on your face by the end of the day. The price is quite expensive as well. I sell Mary Kay and we have a mascara now that Is simple and easy to put on that takes less than 30 seconds and you get the exact same results. I love trying new products and enhance, but it the fiber lashes fall off before the day is out – no thank you.

  • Angel2Blaque .

    I’m sure that Younique has seen these comment. Why haven’t they done something about the eyelash breakage issue?

  • Faith Schneider

    In the case of eyelashes, longer is NOT always better. I’ve seen it on quite a few people now, and I think it looks like spider legs. Eyelashes are not supposed to stick up and clump together, it just doesn’t look good

  • mom2mom2014

    I am a Younique presenter and I can tell you that this mascara is a joke. It is great the first couple of times you use it but it drys out quickly! I have seen presenters tell their customers to do multiple things to help with the dryness, but why? Why would customers spend $31+ to buy defective mascara??? The old formula was awesome (the new formula was introduced in July 2014) and it would last for months! As a Younique presenter, I would not recommend this product and I actually refuse to sell it to any of my customers.

    • Julie smith

      I’m also a presenter . Loved the old formula. I’m now in search of a new mascara bc the new 3d+ is barely lasting me 3 weeks. I think that much money for they time it last is outrageous!

  • MiserableMakingMisery

    Reading poorly written blogs by a variety of people claiming to be authors throws me further into my deep pit of bottomless despair. I kick ass at writing. Putting it out there is too intimidating, in my opinion and circumstance I suppose, primarily because what I write is so personal. Congrats on the lash length and odd occurrence of being born with blonde lashes and brown hair.

  • anna

    Brilliant review Im totally in love with my younique mascara and .will never go back to regular!!! I als love getting paid to play with makeup, Im currently looking for the right person to join my amazing team, if you think this could be you contact me youniqueproducts.com/annalou xxxx

  • Cara

    Good morning! I am a new Younique rep, and I love this review! Would you mind if I copied and pasted it into one of my parties when I talk about it being naturally based? I always think it is nice to hear from another unbiased person versus just the one trying to sell the product! I would never want to use your words without your permission. Thanks!!

  • Lizp

    I bought this mascara from a registered Presenter and my honest opinion is that it is overrated. It certainly makes your lashes longer, but the application is awkward and the fibres are clumpy. I have been using it for over three months as directed by the Presenter, saying “I will get the hang of it” but I still find it time consuming for not spectacular results. I certainly expect more after seeing all the pictures of women’s lashes online. If I use it more than three times of week, my eyes also get incredibly itchy and feels like there are fibres stuck in my eyes. I literally have to use an eye wash to get relief. I would recommend a good eye lash curler and a couple of coats of regular mascara and you will see similar results (without having to pay $40). Just my two cents…

    • sarah

      I am having the same problem! I used it on occasions only !! and after 3 weekends in a row of using it my lashes are falling out really bad! I stopped using it 2 weeks ago but my lashes are still falling out ans very thin 🙁 im really sad because this product it great !! and really makes the lashes thicker and longer !!!

      • Ray Urie

        sorry to hear, Sarah. please send me an e-mail to discuss. maybe I can help.

    • http://PureRomance.com/TenayaPeters Tenaya Peters

      My lashes cane out as well. I think the problem is using your own mascara 1st like it recommends. I tried it one day months ago and my lashes seemed a little thin after removal, I used it directly on my lashes. Last week I used my own mascara 1st with hopes that would be better, I barely have any lashes now!!! I will probably have to purchase something or get a Rx for something that grows lashes 🙁

    Hi – i have had my mascara for 8 weeks and the fibre brush is totally dry. Is this normal. I bought it from a registered seller. Please advise

    • http://www.busybuthealthy.com Kristine Fretwell

      Hey Suz! I don’t sell it so not sure if that’s normal. Yes contact the rep you got it from.

    • jennifer

      Try putting the tube in a glass of warm water for about 10 minutes to loosen up the fibers. Fill your cup about half full, put closed wand in water right side up

  • Kk

    This product is terrible if used daily. It literally made all my lashes thin, and fall out! I contacted the distributor and they said they’ve never had a complaint like this before and offered a refund… Although the refund wasn’t easy to get, so I just stopped using the product and waited for my lashes to return!

    • jennifer

      It actually helped grow my lashes!

    • Gracie Parkinson

      It made my lashes fall out too! 🙁 And I haven’t heard about anybody else with this problem until now!

      • Rashelle

        I have been using mine for about a week. I had naturally long lashes but wanted some extra intensity but now my lash length has decreased by well over half and my lashes are actually falling out! I’m relieved I’m not the only one with this problem 🙁

        • http://www.busybuthealthy.com Kristine Fretwell

          Not sure how this would happen as the ingredients are probably better than most regular mascara’s. Did you change anything else in your routine? Face wash, base mascara, new eyelash curler? I haven’t had any of mine fall out since using it. I’m now on my second set. I mean I get some that fall out which always happened, but nothing any more than normal.

          • Dezi Tuesday Franklin

            My eyelashes have been falling out as well. I’ve used it about 10 times and I’m down to almost nothing but a few stubby lashes and a raw lash line. At first I thought it was all in my head but it’s been very painful the past few days and I haven’t even used it. The last time I used it I removed it at night and the next morning I woke up my eyes were swollen shut and I even got sent home from work because it was so bad and painful. I’m always very gentle with my eye makeup removal and haven’t changed anything except my mascara. I think the product is great but it seems more and more people are having this problem.

          • Mallory Lee Ranson

            Hey! This also has happened to me. Did yours grow back?!?

      • Acutiestill

        Oh my god!!! I always had long full lashes but wore mascara daily AND used a curler because they are naturally blonde. IVe been using younique for like 4 months and I’ve noticed my lashes are coming out and breaking off when I curl them, which never happened before. I’m starting to think its younique. I’m quitting as of yesterday and I purchased elastilash. My wedding is coming and I need lashes!!!

        • Ray Urie

          This is terrible. please send me an e-mail to discuss. maybe I can help.

      • Fierenza

        Mine are falling out as well! I had incredibly long lashes and noticed after using this for a couple of weeks that they are half as thick and every time I look at my face, I have yet another eyelash that has fallen out sitting there. It has to be this product for sure.

        • Ray Urie

          Fierenza, sure sounds like it. Yikes. please send me an e-mail to discuss. maybe I can help.

      • Mallory Lee Ranson

        Hey! I used the mascara two weeks ago and started noticing my lashes were thinning and breaking off. I stopped using it, but my lashes are still super brittle. I am curious if your lashes grew back? I am mortified that mine won’t grow back .. I’ve purchased monats eye wonder, I’m hoping it’ll help!

        • Ray Urie

          Mallory, doesn’t sound normal to me. please send me an e-mail to discuss. maybe I can help.

      • Ray Urie

        I am so sorry, Gracie. please send me an e-mail to discuss. maybe I can help.

    • Becky

      I used it only on occasions when I was going out and it made my eye lashes fall out. I noticed on days when I just wore regular mascara for work it was not going on the same and my lashes were much thinner! I am no longer using Younique and hoping my lashes grow back. I also have not heard many complaints about this and am curious if there are more of us.

      • Katie

        Yes, I’m having the same problem. Middle eyelashes on both of my eyes have literally broken off from using this! I love the product & I’ve found it pretty simple to use once you get the hang of it but it’s not worth my thinning, brittle eyelashes! I also noticed that when I first starting using it, it irritated my eyes A LOT. As long as you don’t apply it all the way down to your water line it shouldn’t cause any irritation.

        • Heather

          I am freaking out because my lashes are thinning and breaking off, too!!! I’m too scared to use it again….

    • Ellie

      I too have noticed since I began using Younique mascara that my eyelashes have decreased in length (they now have a noticeable short, “stubby” appearance)…I wasn’t sure if it was just me so I googled and found this thread. I too loved the length and volume Younique provided, but will discontinue the product since it is not worth losing the natural length of my lashes 🙁

      • charley

        I now have a small bald spot on the top lashes on my right eye. 🙁 I also got a pretty bad eye infection after using this. I think my eyes were just irritated from the fibers. I’ve stopped using it, and my eyes are happier. Hopefully my lashes grow back.

        • Katherine Jacobson

          I used the product 3 times and all 3 times I had a problem with it! My eyes are very irritated,red and swollen.
          The fibers constantly were falling off my lashes and into my eyes.
          I have tried to give it away and nobody wants it! I will never buy it again and NEVER recommend the product !

            Katherine, so sorry. please send me an e-mail to discuss. maybe I can help.

  • Ren Lavoie

    I am a Younique Presenter as well and the one commentator is correct, the 3D mascara is NOT vegan due to beeswax… it is however, the fibers ARE 100% natural green tea and the gel is 87% natural based product. It is also gluten free. The only vegan products we have are BB Flawless Foundation, concealers, blushes and Rose Water.

    • Snowbell

      Is black the only color available? I am a blonde, and I normally use mascara brown or dark brown.

      • http://www.busybuthealthy.com Kristine Fretwell

        I’m pretty sure it just comes in black.

      • Ren Lavoie

        Yes however, if you dip a qtip in one of our brown pigments then brush it on our wet trtransplanting gel, you will get brown lashes. OR you could use any of our 32 pigments feel free to check out our products here. https://www.youniqueproducts.com/RLavoie/products/landing

      • Jess Nicholson

        Yes, comes in black buthe try brushing on one of our pigments in either matte or shimmer to retrieve the colour, you desire.

  • Denyce

    My lashes are not curly at all. Can I use an eyelash curler with this mascara and if so at what point in the process would I use it?

    • http://www.busybuthealthy.com Kristine Fretwell

      Yes you can totally use an eyelash curler. I’d use it before you apply any mascara.

    • Caitlyn

      yes, always use it before mascara. If you use it with mascara on, it can damage and pull out some eyelashes.

    • Ren Lavoie

      Or you can use a low setting of your blow dryer on cool setting after putting it on 🙂

  • Lara

    Wow! I hope everyone that decides to purchase this mascara, after your review, will go to Amy’s Younique site that you posted. As a Younique presenter, I am very sorry that others feel the need to post their links. Younique frowns on this behavior and it is not what we stand for as a company. Here is Amy’s link that the blog author used for you to purchase. Amy deserves any business generated from this review. Uplift. Empower. Validate.

    • Christy

      I like you! I was irritated to see other reps coming in to poach buyers from what are clearly Amy’s leads. I don’t sell the mascara, this is just an observation from someone who came to read about it. 🙂 I appreciate the attitude you have!

  • ellkay

    Okay, here’s MY input 🙂 Initially, I loved this mascara! But after a few uses, it started drying up, causing big clumps of fibers on the brush/wand. I tried to rehydrate by warming the tube in water, and when that didn’t work, I putt a dash of warm water IN the tube, and “stirred well”, but no good results came from it. So this is a GREAT mascara, but it doesn’t last long (quality-wise). Maybe I just got an “old” tube when I bought it, and that’s why it dried up, but I don’t think so, and here’s why. I bought a different brand, and the same thing is happening. So it is MY belief that the fibers in this mascara dries up very quickly, and you get nothing but globs. 🙂 🙁 And for the price, it should last longer than a few uses. I hope others can say that theirs lasted a long time. But by the 2nd one drying up, I think I will go back to regular mascara.

    • Ash

      Mine lasted about 4 months with 4-5 uses a week. Toward the end of the life of the fibres (if you will) I did sit the fiber tube in hot water for 2 minutes prior to using and then placed it back in the water before doing my other eye. I absolutely love this mascara and find it lasts all day. I am on my second purchase of the 3D mascara and its been about 2 months so far and so far so good as far as lasting long.

      • http://www.busybuthealthy.com Kristine Fretwell

        I agree Ash! I’m about 4 months in as well and still on my first tube! Getting towards the end so I know I’ll need another soon. I don’t use it every single day, but probably 4 times a week. I’m going to try that hot water trick too to see how much more I can get out of it!

    • alicia9938

      I personally think it is overpriced and time consuming. If you don’t take the time to separate the clumps, you look like you’re wearing spider legs on your eyes. Plus, even with the most generous gel application, fibers still come off during the day.

      • Ray Urie

        I have a question for you about this product, and the money you spent on it. might be able to help. please message me.

    • Jess Nicholson

      Try a drop of Vaseline eye drops.. works like a charm 😉

  • Mary Hristov

    The best thing I did, was I decided to become a presenter so I could get a discount on my future purchases & the first day wearing it, everyone wanted one. So not only did I save on my makeup, I got it for free & made allot of money without even trying to sell it. It literally sells itself!! I loooooove it!!!! If you want to do what I did, let me know & ill show you.

    You can buy this mascara on Amazon for around $22! 🙂

    • Ren Lavoie

      Thats not the real product it is fake…

  • Kt

    There is bees wax in this product so it’s not vegan…

    I would like to know how long it lasts since some of you have had it for awhile. I bought mine a while back and love it….I have very short eyelashes, and it does make a difference.

  • Karen

    How can I buy this? How much will it cause to ship it?( I’m from the Philippines) Thous this have any side effects?

    • Val Judy Blanco-Uy

      Hi karen… Do add me in FB (name : Val Judy Blanco Uy) I can help you with sending you this amazing product to the philippines

    • Kara Soltez

      I hope you never actually purchased this. If you did you likely have short, stubby and thinning lashes. Terrible, terrible product.

    Great review, would like to try it too.

    Thanks for the review! I’ve never heard of the product before now, and I’d love to try it based on your post!

  • Genevieve

    Kristine! Your lashes look fabuLASH! I am also a Younique rep (in BC) and the 3D mascara is just booming out here! It’s not well known yet in western Canada so thankyou for posting about it to share the lash love! I’m obsessed with the mascara and the whole product line! Best part is, the products aren’t filled with crappy ingredients!!!

    My lashes are super light and pretty sparse. I have been using Latisse for a while it is SO expensive though. I LOVE that you did this review and your own photos I would love to try this also! I wouldn’t mind paying that much considering what I drop on Latisse!

    I’ve seen this product recently and had no idea it was vegan and cruelty free…great to know..I will absolutely do more research because my dainty lashes sure do need the extra umph.

  • Susan

    Wow, sounds really interesting and the picture is amazing. I have no lashes to speak of, even with mascara, you can’t see them.

  • Kimber

    Can’t wait to try it!

  • Jennifer Chorazy

    I’ve been wanting to try this! I have friends raving about this mascara! I, like you, use L’oreal, so in order to switch it would have to be amazing! Your results are fabulous!

  • Amanda C

    Wouldn’t mind trying it 🙂

  • Shanik

    Sorry couldn’t get photo of tips to post! You can youtube application or google it for details

    I also sell this stuff and agree it is amazing! Those of you that have had trouble with it try these tips! Or contact Amy usually it’s something that is not being done correctly ( sealing the fibers ) is huge! Enjoy!

  • Emily

    My lashes need help! I would love to try this

  • BOPPER

    I’ve been wanting to know how this works. I might have to give it a try. Thanks for the review

  • Amy Sessa Horn

    Hi ladies! I am Amy the Independent Presenter with Younique! I am so excited that Kristine tried out the 3D lash mascara and loved it, I knew she would! 😉 I have short thin lashes myself but not anymore! I use this stuff and get amazing results! I had thought about doing falsies but discovered this product which is way cheaper and doesn’t hurt your natural lashes. My website is mentioned above so please feel free to shop around and check out all of our amazing products (there is a ton of other stuff along with the mascara and a lot of specials going on right now!) My facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/YouniquebyAmyHorn Come check me out! I can’t wait to see who gets to try this amazing product out! Please feel free to ask any questions, thank you!!

      Thanks Amy!

  • Deanna Hollman

    My natural lashes are regular, not overly long or full. I have also been getting a lot of fb party invites to try this but haven’t ordered yet. I miss getting extensions, so this would be a nice alternative! Thanks for the review 🙂

  • Laurie Leilani Franklin

    I have been wondering about how this worked—the photos I keep seeing it looks very clumpy, but it looks great on you. Thanks for posting!

    • http://www.busybuthealthy.com Kristine Fretwell

      I think if you went too heavy with it, it might get clumpy. I apply it like I apply regular mascara…sort of do a wiggle and sweep if that makes sense 😉

  • Reg

    Would love to give this a try. Lash extensions are pricey and difficult to take care of. 🙂 Thanks for the great review Kristine.

    • http://www.busybuthealthy.com Kristine Fretwell

      Good point! I totally forgot about lash extension…yes this would be a great alternative to that. I had thought about extensions but I’d be scared I’d lose some of my own lashes in the process. Plus its pricey to keep up.

  • Jessica H.

    I am very interested in trying this product 🙂 I have heard great things about it!!!

  • archarak726

    Big difference between the two, I’d be interested in trying it.

    • http://www.busybuthealthy.com Kristine Fretwell

      Thanks! Yah, I thought so too. And only for a little bit more work in my daily routine.

  • http://www.lifeoftaren.com/ Taren @ Life of Taren

    Definitely want to try this now! My lashes are okay but they could definitley use that wow factor!

    • http://www.busybuthealthy.com Kristine Fretwell

      Totally…right?!

  • Nathalie Villeneuve-Mondoux

    I have naturally long lashes too, but they are thin. I was skeptic about this mascara because of the price and because I go through mascara like crazy. A tube lasts maybe 2 weeks for me. I’m a mascara-holic lol 🙂 I love dark, long clump free lashes, but other fiber mascaras made my lashes look like spider legs and were really clumpy. So at $35 a pop, I wasn’t sure I could justify the price if it’ll only last me 2 weeks and I wasn’t sure if it would be clumpy like others. I’m really curious about Younique’s.

    • http://www.busybuthealthy.com Kristine Fretwell

      I’ll report back as to how long mine lasts too. I learned a great trick on how to get an extra week out of my mascara…add a couple drops of eye drops to the tube. Works great! I’m going to see if that works with this when I get low! (on the gel bottle anyway)

  • Kristy

    Interesting. I’m intrigued….

  • Ellen

    I was disappointed with the product. Found it irritated my eyes and after one a few uses the transplanting gel is drying out. I also found it clumps easily. I would not purchase it again.

    • http://www.busybuthealthy.com Kristine Fretwell

      Oh bummer. You must have very sensitive eyes. I do find I kind of wiggle and sweep and that prevents any clumps that might form.

    • Tiffany

      They look clumpy on everyone I see, and so I am surprised that people like this bad product at all.

    • Ray Urie

      please send me an e-mail to discuss. maybe I can help.

  • Nicki MacKenzie

    I have naturally long lashes as well, but like you, they are virtually invisible they are so blonde! I DO use a few of the higher end mascaras cuz, to be honest, they do enhance better than the cheaper IMOHO, lol. I have tried the Cherry Blossoms 3D mascara, with good results. Curious about this one, tho!

    • http://www.busybuthealthy.com Kristine Fretwell

      I haven’t heard of the Cherry Blossoms one. I will look it up! Probably if you like that one, you’d like this too. I don’t like having blonde lashes either!

  • Laura

    I feel like all the years of mascara and rubbing have taken their toll and I would love to have the look of longer lashes again!!

    • http://www.busybuthealthy.com Kristine Fretwell

      I agree!

  • Vashti

    I have very long lashes, but they’re light and thin. Needless to say, I’m a mascara addict! I’d love to give this a try, look awesome.

    • http://www.busybuthealthy.com Kristine Fretwell

      I’m totally a mascara addict too. I can’t even count how many I’ve tried.

  • Heather

    I have long lashes and rarely wear mascara. I’ve seen a lot of the before and after photos of this product though and am intrigued.

    • http://www.busybuthealthy.com Kristine Fretwell

      I know, me too. I had to see if it lived up to its claims!

  • Dana

    Sounds like my kind of product. I was not blessed with long lashes and am always trying new mascara in my quest for them. Seems like I need to try it.

    • http://www.busybuthealthy.com Kristine Fretwell

      You should totally try it. Not sure if they have a money-back guarantee, but I’ll ask.

  • Missy

    I have long lashes, but like you I think they are getting a bit thinner as I am aging. I’ve been researching the Younique and had heard different opinions on how easy/difficult it is to apply. Your steps made much more sense than what I’ve read. I would love to give it a try!

    • http://www.busybuthealthy.com Kristine Fretwell

      I couldn’t find an easy tutorial online either. It seemed vague. The instructions that came with it were the best.

    • Shauna

      It is really simple. Basically like 3 coats of mascara! Let me know if you have any questions!

  • Amy

    Great review! Have been very curious about this mascara. I have longer lashes naturally. The only mascara I love is Loreal Voluminous!

    • http://www.busybuthealthy.com Kristine Fretwell

      🙂 Gotta love Loreal!

  • Crystal Borg

    My Lashes are pretty long as is, but I wear falsies all the time on weekends so I would LOVE to try this potentially elimating wearing false lashes on the weeekends !!

    • http://www.busybuthealthy.com Kristine Fretwell

      Oh yes, you could totally wear this instead of falsies! Then you don’t have to worry about them falling off! LOL!

  • Kat

    Does it come in brown or only black? I find I’m too pale to wear black mascara without looking scary lol

    • http://www.busybuthealthy.com Kristine Fretwell

      As far as I know, it only comes in black.

  • Jessica @ Dairy Free Betty

    I’ve always wanted to try them but thought it was too expensive for myself unless it’s truly amazing – so I’d LOVE LOVE to win this!!! Thank you for your honest review!!

    • http://www.busybuthealthy.com Kristine Fretwell

      🙂 Glad you enjoyed reading it!
