After coating my lashes with a few thick strokes of  Younique Moodstruck 3D fiber lashes, I stunned myself. Seriously. My lashes were va-va-voom gorgeous! That girl in the mirror went from pea-sized sleepy-eyes to caffeine-crazy baby-blues. A. Total. Babe.

I’ve always wanted to test out a pair of false lashes, but didn’t want to fall in love with a beauty regime I couldn’t maintain. Time and money are scarce during these mothering days. Most of my purchases fall under two categories: price and quality. Can I afford it and will it seep toxins into my body. With that in mind, check out my review below:


  • Contains natural ingredients.
  • Hypoallergenic. 
  • Mimics eyelash extensions without having to commit to eyelash extensions. 
  • Produces dramatic, thick, voluminous and long lashes.
  • Need help trouble shooting? A Younique presenter is available to help with every and any question. Seriously, this was a major perk for me. I was able to ask my presenter (Zabrina), tons of questions and she was very knowledgeable. And if she didn’t know? She investigated my quandry and got back to me pronto.
  • Love It Guarantee – Younique wants you to love their products as much as they do. If not, they’ve got you covered.
  • Made in the USA.


  • Time consuming to apply for a rushed Mama on the go (however, false eyelashes would take much longer!).
  • Somewhat clumpy, but I am working on applying the fibres more evenly.
  • Costly compared to my toxin-laden drugstore mascara (again, not as much as eyelash extensions).
  • Some reviews mentioned this mascara flaked. I generally only wear mascara for 4-5 hours at a time and I didn’t experience this, but I could see how this might happen. Especially if multiple coats are applied.

Price Point 

  • I would consider this mascara splurge item. It’s absolutely awesome, but when I compare it to my $6 drugstore mascara, that’s hard to beat. However, my drugstore mascara is paraban-laden and definitely does not give me va-va-voom lashes!
  • The mascara should last about three months of daily wear – $35.00 (CDN) = $0.39 per day

EWG Rating (Environmental Working Group

  • Low hazard score –  “2”

Natural Ingredients

  • Younique lists all ingredients. They use some synthetics ingredients, which I’m not the biggest fan of, but not detrimental by any means. I don’t think an all natural, clean as mud mascara could produce the same results.
  • Gluten free, pure minerals, paraben free, talc/starch free, preservative free.
  • Find the entire ingredient list here.


  • Step 1: Curl your eyelashes with an eyelash curler.
  • Step 2: Apply mascara to one eye at a time. Coat an even layer of transplanting gel to lashes of one eye.
  • Step 3: Immediately apply natural fibres while the transplanting gel is still wet.
  • Step 4: Apply the sealing coat of transplanting gel.
  • Step 5: Repeat the process with the other eye.
  • Step 6: Reapply as many alternating layers, until desired look is achieved. 
  • Tips:
    • Take your time. For someone who isn’t the best with beauty products, I had to be tedious.
    • Apply the fibres mid-eyelash. I found my eyes felt irritated and itchy if I applied the fibres too close to my eyelid.


  • If you use makeup remover, a breeze to be sure. I shower every night before bed, so I just washed my face in the shower and it came off easily.

Where to buy 

  • Order from a Younique presenter through their online portal. Done and Done. I love online shopping.
