Say goodbye to short, sparse lashes and hello to thick, full volume – according to Younique 3D Fiber Lash Mascara. The lash enhancing beauty product is a top seller for Younique, a relatively young makeup brand known for its quality and purity. Younique is free from toxic chemicals, parabens, and other harmful ingredients. They offer gluten-free gloss and vegan blush, but the 3D Fiber Lash Mascara is by far the company’s star product.
“This is an absolute, must-have beauty product,” says Brittany Garcia, independent sales representative for Younique. “You get the look of falsies and extensions without the hassle of glue and lash strips, or outrageously high prices.”
So how does it work? For $29 you’ll receive two separate tubes: one is the “transplanting gel” that holds the fibers in place. The other contains the actual fibers, made from a green tea fiber formula (don’t worry, the mascara is black). To the novice user, the application process can seem overwhelming, but Garcia assures there’s nothing to worry about.
“If you can apply regular mascara, you can apply your 3D Fiber Lashes,” she says.
Here’s how it works:
Step 1 (optional): Apply a coat of your favorite mascara for additional volume.
Step 2: Apply the transplanting gel, making sure to heavily coat the lashes.
Step 3: After applying the transplanting gel, quickly apply the fibers while the gel is still wet. Garcia advises against starting at the lash line when applying the fibers. Instead, start mid-way and work your way up. “This will prevent the fibers from getting into your eye.”
Step 4: Apply a final coat of transplanting gel to lock the fibers in place. For longer lashes, repeat steps one through three, concentrating on the tips of the lashes.
Once your 3D Fiber Lashes are in place, they are there for the long haul. Garcia says the mascara is water resistant and “will last through your hardest workouts and sauna sessions.” To remove, just rinse with warm water and a small amount of your regular facial cleanser. Although, with 300 percent fuller lashes, you might not want to take it off.
