Today I'm breaking away from the nail end of beauty blogging to introduce a new product and a new brand to you. My friend Tanya introduced me to this new line of cosmetics called Younique - the retail side of things is a bit similar to Avon or Mary Kay, in that you have an independent representative who basically runs his/her own business with this cosmetic line. I went poking around at the products available, and one immediately struck me: the 3D Fiber Lashes. What in the world, right? Let me show you.
This product comes in a nice quilted faux leather case, of similar size to a reading glasses case.
Inside are two tubes of product - one with the Transplanting Gel and one with 3D Fibers.
The Transplanting Gel wand is essentially a mascara wand, and the gel itself is black. The primary ingredient is collagen.
The smaller tube contains the 3D fibers, which are of similar consistency to flocking powder, but the fibers are longer and maybe a bit softer. These fibers are make from the green tea plant.
To apply, you begin with one coat of regular mascara. When dry, you apply a coat of the Transplanting Gel, followed immediately by swiping the fibers on, and sealed with another coat of the gel. You can repeat for even denser, fuller lashes. I apologize in advance for the weird focus on these photos - for some reason my camera only wanted to focus on one eye and not the other, but you can still see the progression pretty well.

As you can see, the product clearly does work. It's not without a bit of mess, however, namely fallout of the fibers, so it may take a few applications before you feel like you've really mastered the art of applying them. However, it's definitely easier than applying falsies, with less mess and much easier removal, so these would be a great option if you hate falsies as much as I do.
I made a first impressions video the first time I ever applied this products, so check it out if you're interested.
For more information about Younique 3D Lashes and the complete cosmetic line, you can see Tanya's Younique page.
Hope you're all having a fantastic day! I'll be back tomorrow with more nail art.
