Today's review is on a new product hitting UK shores, it's the Younique 3D fiber lashes* - currently $29 each, but launching soon in the UK.
Here's what they have to say about it "Our simple three-step process combines Transplanting Gel and Natural Fibers to help create the appearance of incredible thickness and volume to your existing lashes. Watch as your lashes transform into something you have only dreamed of! The 3D Fiber Lashes are water resistant but easily washes off with warm water and facial cleanser at the end of the day."
They say to put a coat of your favourite mascara on first, you really need this for the fibre's to stick to. For this I used the Max Factor Clump Defy mascara, which I must admit is drying out a little now. I did also try this with a newer mascara and the fibres did actually stick even better. I followed up with a coat of the fibre before the first coat of mascara dried and it stuck nicely.
Once I'd done that with both eyes, I coated them with the 'transplanting gel' which set it all in place and secured the fibres in place. Now, because I'm a bit of a numpty, I wore dramatic liquid eyeliner, so the lashes don't show up that well in the pictures (note to self: leave the eyeliner alone when reviewing mascara!), but in the last pic you can really see the length that the mascara gives which really shows it off.
I really do love the packaging this comes in too, it's like a little glasses case with the mascaras fitted in place inside. The actual mascara packaging feels great quality too. I was really impressed with the finished look, my lashes looked more voluminous and longer, without looking false (which is a big deal to me). This definitely gives me better lashes than just wearing mascara by itself, there was a tiny bit of fallout after wearing it for about 6 hours, but it didn't leave any blackness or black streaks on my cheeks, they brushed away really easily.
All in all I'm really impressed with this, I'm looking forward to seeing how much they'll be selling it for here in the UK :) If you want to get informed when they're going to launch here, you can sign up here.
