I don’t review a lot of products on this blog, and I certainly don’t review beauty products regularly, but today that’s what you’re getting. So if you’re one of my male readers feel free to move on to the next blog post of the day now
A few weeks before we moved my friend Jen was over for a late night editing session and she asked me if I had ever heard of 3D Mascara. She proceeded to fill me in on this weird sounding stuff where you put green tea fibers on your eyelashes. Say what?
Anyways, fast forward a couple months and someone invited me to an online party with Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes. It’s an all-natural two step mascara product. I realized this was the same stuff Jen was talking about and as people started posting before and after pictures, I was intrigued.
See I love the idea of a “dramatic eye.” When I realized that usually that involved fake eye lashes I even went out and bought some to try it. Um, yeah, I am ALL FINGERS when it comes to putting on fake eyelashes. Ain’t nobody got time for that!!
But obviously the 3D Lashes are more expensive ($30) than my cheap Maybelline stuff ($8). So I wanted to know it was going to live up to the hype. I watched a bunch or YouTube reviews (including this slightly loud and annoying one) which convince me to give it a try. After all there is a “You Love It Guarantee” w/ a full refund.
The first time I applied the 3D Lashes I made the mistake of trying to get the fibers on the entire length of my lashes. I felt like I had scooped the pocket lint out of my son’s jeans and rubbed it on my eyes. I went back and watched an application video and realized it was better to apply the natural fibers to the last half of the top lashes. That made ALL the difference.
The effect is dramatic, that’s for sure (see my before and afters below). But still, I’m a cheapskate. So I thought I’ll wear it once in a while. Well truth be told once I used the 3D Lashes a few times I was hooked. When I just put on my regular mascara I felt like I wasn’t wearing any at all.
If you’re interested in checking it out, I’m hosting a virtual Younique party through my friend Erica Shubin and you can check it out here. The lashes are hypo-allergenic, water resistant and wash off with soap and water. (Plus don’t forget the 14-day money back guarantee.)

And here’s a close up for ya!
