I’m among the millions of people out there trying out Younique’s Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes. I would be surprised if anyone with a Facebook or Instagram account wouldn’t have heard of this product yet. Is it worth all the hype? Read on to find out.
If you search for 3D Fiber Lashes or Younique on YouTube, you will find every presenter has a tutorial on how to apply the 3D Fiber Lashes mascara, so I don’t have to do it here.
This year, when I shop, I’m looking for products that are sustainable, natural, not tested on animals and have less of an impact on our planet. I’m also searching for a great mascara that fits those parameters. I’m not sure if the 3D Fiber lashes fits in the parameters exactly but they don’t test their products on animals. Here is what Younique says about animal testing (source)
Younique does not test our products on animals. We are in the process of exploring/procuring official certification as a cruelty-free company. However, Younique has not conducted an in-depth cruelty-free review tracing each ingredient back to such ingredient’s original source at this time.
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
Natural Fibers Ingredients: 100% Natural Fibers taken from Green Tea. Net WT .02 OZ/ .5g.
I won’t lie, the 3D Fiber Lashes mascara is expensive. It cost me $35 CND (includes taxes but not shipping)! Ouch, it hurts the wallet. However, I think it does what it’s supposed to. It definitely extended my lashes. In fact, my lashes could almost touch my eyebrows (I do have low eyebrows). It’s water resistant and it washes off easily with soap. There is a bit of a learning curve on the application of the 3D Fiber Lashes.
The application of this product is quite long. They suggest to first put a coat of your favorite mascara (grrr, that’s what I’m in search of). Once dry, you apply the transplanting gel and quickly try to apply the fibers, followed by another coat of the transplanting get to seal the fibers. You can repeat the process until you are satisfied with the length. I only put 1 coat on, although I did try 2 coats.
Since I workout often, and I find that some mascaras don’t fare well when put to the sweat test. Mascara ends up bleeding down eyes a bit. I put the 3D Fibre Lashes to he sweat test and the 3D Fiber Lashes won! It’s stayed looking the same after the work out as it did before. In fact, this mascara stayed on the whole day!
Would I buy the 3D Fibre Lashes mascara again? Probably not based on the price alone. I already have long lashes, so I’m not looking at extending my lashes, just darkening them. Also, I find that there are too many steps in the application.
However, if you are looking at actually giving your lashes a longer look without using false lashes and glue, then perhaps it’s a great alternative for you! If I could find something that would hide my purple circles under my eyes and last all day, I would definitely invest a little money it it.
