ONE little MOMMA: Younique 3D Fiber Mascara Tutorial and Giveaway

Younique 3D Fiber Mascara Tutorial and Giveaway

|

If you have seen my boys, especially in real life, you know what AMAZING eyelashes they have. All of my kids have the longest, thickest, and blackest lashes, and they get compliments on them all the time. However, they did not get them from me. My lashes are almost nonexistent. I always wear mascara and in the last year I have started wearing false lashes frequently. I love the look of thick lashes, so when April offered to send me Younique 3D Fiber Mascara I jumped at the chance. I mean who isn't always on the lookout for a better mascara? 

3D Fiber Mascara is definitely different than any mascara I have tried. It comes in two tubes: one is transplanting gel and the other is natural fibers. You apply the mascara in a three-step process which I describe below and then wash it off with your makeup at the end of the day. I think it takes some scrubbing, but it does wash off. The mascara should last about three months of daily wear. I wasn't sure what to expect because it does cost more than my drugstore tube of mascara, but I am willing to spend extra on the right product, so I wanted to give it a try. 

The first time I used it, the mascara went on okay, but honestly it was pretty clumpy and my lashes didn't look natural. Still, they were longer and more full - I could tell that they were better than my Covergirl Lashblast results, so I was willing to keep trying. I think it took about two weeks to figure it out. Every day I tried different tricks, and each day my lashes were looking better. To help you out, I've made a little video tutorial for applying the mascara with my how-tos using the best tips I've found so far. 

(You will have to excuse the orientation of the video - my husband helped me, and I have a lot to learn about filming video tutorials! I do want to do more of them so bear with me as I figure it out!)




  1. To apply the mascara you first apply the transplanting gel. It is black and goes on similar to normal mascara. I focus applying the gel to the base of my lashes and the outer half of my eye. I do not apply it to my lower lashes. 
  2. After I coat my lashes on the first eye with the gel, I apply the fibers. The fibers look like little fuzzy particles of felt. As you apply them with a wand to your lashes they lengthen and stick to the gel. It is really surprising when you try it for the first time. It usually takes me about two dips in the fiber, and it can clump, so beware. I then let those fibers dry while I apply gel and fiber to the other eye.
  3. After both eyes have a coat of each on them, I follow up with a coat of gel again on each eye. This helps seal in the fibers and harden them to look like mascara. Sometimes I will go back and do a second coat of fibers and gel on any areas that didn't get long enough, but now that I have practiced for a few weeks I don't have to as often. I do like to put a little of my normal mascara on my lower eyelashes to finish the look.
Overall, I still prefer my false lashes for added volume, length, and the end look, but they can be uncomfortable if applied sloppily, and they get expensive. This 3D mascara has been a great day-to-day alternative to false lashes, and I've had a hard time going back to my Covergirl after using it. I won't say its perfect (although rumor has it there is an improved formula on its way), but it does work. I'd recommend it in a heartbeat as long as you follow my tips and tricks and put in the effort to figure it out!

Wanna try it out? You can find out more info from April here or enter to win your own set valued at $29 below. The winner will be chosen April 9th. Good luck!

  7. My favorite right now is the Covergirl Cat Eye but I am looking for a new one that will add more volume and length. I find that I can only find one or the other in a cheaper mascara but this looks awesome! :)

  8. I use this too! Takes a bit of getting used to but I find its better (easier, more comfortable) than falsies for a night out. Apply before other make-up, especially foundation or concealer, as the fibers tend to fall down under your eyes and you don't want to mess up your foundation when you remove them.
    Congrats on your first video, Kilee :)

  14. Whoops didn't read the question. I do not have a favorite mascara- not loyal to any one brand- seem to try a different brand each time to hopefully find that amazing perfect one!

  15. My favorite mascara is Flawless Definition Mascara by BareMinerals. I just got my first tube of it in the mail, and I'm loving it. My lashes look longer and fuller!

  16. Right now my favorite mascara is Jordana it's reasonable and as great as some of the high end ones I've tried!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I use Maybelline Great Lash because it is the best waterproof mascara I have ever used. I have awtery eyes and nothing else really stays all day.

    ReplyDelete
  18. My favorite for now is Marcelle Twist Push-up. Haven't made the step yet to false lashes as I am to clumsy and feel it would be a too long process for me ! So, I am willing to try this product !

    ReplyDelete
  19. I don't use mascara unless I'm going out, but I'd love to have a long lasting mascara that I didn't have to put it on and take it off everyday.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I use Mary Kay ultimate mascara. I have a problem with mascara running and this stays on all day without smearing under my eyes.

  23. I've been wanting to try this! I've been using Loreal's Beauty Tubes, which is more like a plastic than a paint, so it doesn't come off easily! Great video! ( I realized I posted above with my old account/name, oops!)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Great tutorial! I've never found a mascara that I really love, so this would be fun to try. And April 9th is my birthday!:)

  26. I just started to use bombshell by cover girl. Someone recommended it. I like it so far, except when you go to take it off, I think my eyelashes are being damaged. That stuff is bittersweet...

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love, love Tarte's Lights Camera Lashes. About once a year Ulta puts them on sale for $10 so I stock up for the year. Mary Kay also has a fairly decent mascara, Lash Love. And who doesn't love Christian Dior's mascara?

  28. kk, have you ever tried using coconut oil to remove your eye makeup? I started using it to remove my makeup about six months ago and my eyelashes are actually stronger and longer. Just get a nickle sized amount of coconut oil on your finger tips and gently wipe it over your eyes (the coconut oil will melt against your skin). Once you can feel the mascara has come off, gently wipe it all off with a wet cotton pad. I don't have to pull at my eyelashes anymore and it really does work!

  29. I love the video tutorial!!!! I wouldn't change a thing about it. It's so real! Husband's talking to you, baby's crying in the backround.... You're a momma! Btw, your voice sounds so different from what I imagined. But BETTER!!!
    I don't think they have this mascara in Germany yet, but as soon as we have it I'll give it a try.

  37. I seem to not have a favorite mascara or brand, just whatever catches my eye at the store. I do have the 3D mascara...I normally do a single coat of my mascara followed by the gel and fibers...I'll have to try just using the gel and fibers and not my mascara first!

  43. I love the Younique 3D fiber lash mascara! I loved it so much that I started selling it! It would take a little extra effort to remove it at the end of the day, but for those amazing lashes I had, I dealt with taping the extra time to remove it. But then I heard about the Makeup Eraser, and tried it and loved it! It removes ALL makeup, waterproof and all of the 3D Fiber Mascara. It was almost like it "melted" the 3D mascara off! I was amazed and had to sell it! For those of you who haven't heard of the makeup eraser, it's a special, high-quality polyester blend, that only uses water! It's antimicrobial, chemical free, and REUSABLE 1,000x! If anyone is interested, please feel free to email me at knightbrodi@gmail.com or visit my website www.miraculousmakeuperaser.com
