I first was introduced to Younique on a Facebook group for direct sales consultants. I repeatedly saw posts for this "all natural" mascara from multiple consultants. Claims ranging from "all natural" and "100% natural" to "Vegan" and "opthamologist recommended" were being thrown out there.
When I saw the claims, I was curious. I asked a consultant for more info and she then offered to send me the "best selling mascara" for my blog at no cost to me.
A few days later, I had my Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes.
And then I saw the ingredients list.... While the list is far more "natural" than some other products, the product is far from all natural and is definitely not vegan, as it contains beeswax.
A couple weeks later, I decided to try my new "mascara" for the first time. First of all, this is a three-part process. And step one is RIDICULOUS, as you need to already have a mascara! You apply "your own regular favorite mascara" and let it dry. You then need to apply the "transplanting gel" and then quickly apply the "natural fibers". After that, you repeat the transplating gel step.
The result? Sticky lashes that were slightly more voluminous, but only because they felt so sticky and coated. For $29, I was very sorely disappointed because there are SO many better products on the market. With the right mascara, there is simply NO need for all of these additional products. I have used far superior $9 drugstore mascaras. The product I was told is a mascara is not a mascara at all, nor does it serve a purpose.
Transplanting Gel Ingredients: Water, Beeswax (Natural Propolis), Carnauba (Brazilian palm glue), Iron Oxide Cl 77499 (Black), Collagen, Acrylates Copolymer, Nylon, Stearic Acid, Propylene Glycol. .23 FL OZ / 7 ml

The Bottom Line
Skip it! Mine was free and even if yours was as well, I cannot recommend this product.
