Chances are you have at least heard of Younique. I personally have no less than five friends that sell it and know even more than use the line on the regular. In all this time I've never tried any of it! It's almost shameful to be a blogger and never get your hands on something so well known. Today I'm excited to share quite a few pieces from the company and feature/talk to you about my favorites (and of course share a look)!!
Moodstruck Addiction Shadow Palette ($49.00 // Younique). Three options are available and I was sent Palette 1 and Palette 2 to try out and you guys... I LOVE THESE SO MUCH! The pigment is incredible and they have beautiful application. Even the matte shades felt creamy. The shades with a pearl finish can be applied wet or dry, but you absolutely don't even need to use them wet - they're that good dry. (Swatches below are done dry with no primer underneath).
Palette 1 // warm with shades of peach and brown
Elated (matte nude), Sincere (metallic beige), Brassy (shimmer golden copper), Chipper (matte milk chocolate), Swanky (shimmery antique gold), Forthright (matte dark chocolate), Zealous (metallic brown)
Palette 2 // cool shades of black and silver
Hopeless (matte cool gray), Romantic (metallic lavender), Honorable (matte cool taupe), Blissful (shimmery golden peach), Cocky (matte deep brown), Perplexed (metallic charcoal gray), Peppy (matte pure black)
Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+ ($29.00 // Younique). I know this is what you're waiting to hear about! This was probably the very first fiber lash mascara system that I'd ever heard of. This mascara is said to give lashes the "ultimate beauty boost" and "increase lash volume up to 400%".
- Start by applying an even coat of the Transplanting Gel to the lashes.
- Immediately apply a layer of Fibers over the Transplanting Gel.
- Seal it by applying the Transplanting Gel over the fibers.
Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+ contain the brands unique Uplift Eye Serum which is a formula infused with the antioxidant Co-Q10, squalene and vitamins C & E to condition lashes. It's formulated to last all day but be easy to remove at night so that your natural lashes stay healthy.
The Fibers are made of Rayon which is ideal for delivering the Uplift Eye Serum's conditioning properties.
The Transplanting Gel is applied with a wand of bristles that provide maximum coverage without clumping.
I love that these tubes have little windows to show when you're running out. I found that this mascara did lengthen without clumping and made my lashes look nice and feathery. Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+ are hypoallergenic and ophthalmologically tested as well as gluten free, fragrance free, dye free, paraben free, latex free, sulfate free, PABA free, BPA free and nano particle free.
Moodstruck Precision Pencil Eyeliner ($15.00 // Younique). 10 shades are available and three are shown below in Perfect (rich black), Passionate (vibrant purple) and Prim (bold bronze). These liners are touted as being "water-proof, smudge-proof and long-wearing". I found that the kohl formula made these easy to apply and appeared more pigmented on the eye than they did when swatched. Prim was also excellent for waterlining with to really open up the eye when you're tired (see mascara pic above).
Stiff Upper Lip Lip Stain($22.00 // Younique). Seven shades are available and the three shown below are Shy (soft pink), Sultry (bold magenta) and Savvy (deep plum). These stains are touted as "tinted, long-lasting color with a smooth matte finish". I loved how nicely these applied and especially how quickly they dried down and set. Make sure you exfoliate before you apply for the smoothest and most even, long-lasting application.
The Moodstruck Precision Pencil Eyeliners and Stiff Upper Lip Lip Stains are all swatched below with no primers:
Refreshed Rose Water ($29.00 // Younique). If you enjoy the lovely scent of roses you'll need this beauty mist in your life. Refreshed Rose Water is filled with antioxidants and vitamins that help refresh your complexion and is even able to be blended with the Younique Moodstruck Minerals Pigment Powder for long-lasting wear. Some of the benefits of this product are as a toner, primer, revitalizer, hair softener, makeup remover, fragrance and setting spray. I found this spray to smell nice, yet not be too overpowering for me. My skin wasn't irritated and I felt/looked glowy after I applied! My favorite way to use this is as a toner and revitalizer. I keep products like this in the fridge for when I'm feeling overheated... especially if you're in a warmer climate. It's a nice, cool mist!
In the look below from Younique I'm wearing: (EYES)Moodstruck Addiction Shadow Palette 1 (Swanky all over the lid, Zealous at the outer V and blended toward the crease, Forthright above the crease blended down into Zealous, Sincere at the inner corners and under the lower lash line and Elated to highlight), Moodstruck Precision Pencil Eyeliner in Perfect (upper lid), Prim (waterline), Passionate (lower lash line) and Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+; (LIPS)Stiff Upper Lip Lip Stain in Sultry.
