Mascara 101


Eyes are a big deal to me -- it's what you look at each other with, it's how you communicate with one another, it's how you show somebody what you are truly thinking, and above all else -- it's the one thing on your face that can go from dead to alive in a matter of a few mascara swipes. While I was in Florida with my lady loves it was brought to my attention that none of them knew what 3D Fiber Lash Mascara was. Knowing that these women who I consider to be wise and frequent consumers of the latest make-up trends hadn't a clue about it, I started to wonder if you all were in the dark too. The dark is a very scary space to be so today I want you to pull you out of there. You're welcome. 

Here's my lash secret. I put on a coat of regular mascara [which is always Maybelline Classic Volume Express], allow that to dry, and then do a few swipes of the Younique Transplanting Gel. From there I take the fiber lash wand and do a quick coating of the lashes, and waaaaaaaaaa-la, done. 


Here's the progression from regular mascara to my fiber lash mascara. 


As you can see the fiber lashes both thicken and elongate my normal mascara laden lashes. Similar to a bra it provides the extra "oomph" your lashes sometimes need. If you need a view from the backside of how it thickens, take a look ;) 

the left side has the fiber mascara while the right side does not 

And that completes my lesson on how to get the best eyelashes you have ever had. The moral of the story is this: buy Younique 3D Fiber Lashes, use them in front of all your friends, delight in all of the initial shock that they will have, and then buy them each a tube for Christmas. If you are going to look beautiful 24/7, they should too. 


Now if only I could remember to put on lip gloss every day.....

Speaking of lip gloss -- if you go and "like" my dealer's [sounds legit] Facebook page, you will be entered into a drawing to win your own lip gloss. 

Cheers to having the best looking set of eyes on the planet. Go flaunt em' ladies.

  1. I have seen the Younique mascara everywhere! A ton of my friends use/sell it. I like my current mascara, but your lashes look great!

  2. I just found this amazing, almost miracle-like mascara a couple of weeks ago and I am hooked! This stuff is amazing! Pretty sure I won't be able to go back to just regular old mascara ever again. :)

  3. If you're a mascara girl you have to try YSL's Babydoll mascara if you haven't already. It's pricey (about $30) for sure but I'm embarrassingly cheap and still bought it after all the reviews I read. I can't rationalize buying a sweater full price but I rationalize a tube of mascara haha. But now I won't use another mascara 'cause it's sooo good. I love Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara too. This is why I can't afford the cookie(s) I want at Starbucks...

    2. Hi Taylor! Jessica here, Erin's 'dealer.' The key is light layers. It is super user-friendly and of all the women I have sold this mascara to, none have come back to tell me that it was clumpy for them. I don't like clumpy mascara either! Also, removal is SUPER easy. Just like regular mascara, face wash or makeup remover takes it off easily. It's water resistant to rain, tears, and sweat, but comes right off in the shower! Hope this helps! And if you 'Like' my Facebook page, I am beginning to upload application and removal videos so you can see first hand! Have a fabulous day!
      xoxo, Jessica

    1. Hey Krisztina! Now's your chance! ha! But seriously, the great thing about Younique is that they have a 'Love It' Guarantee where if you are not in love with your lashes or any other product they offer, you can return it within 14 days and receive a FULL refund! No risks! Let me know if you have any questions. -Jessica

  8. I've seen Younique on other people and it looked amazing. Of course when I tried it, it was an epic fail. It looks like you've got the application down to a science though!

    1. Hey girl! May I ask what your application process was? Did you use a base mascara or start right off with the transplanting gel? Both ways are fine and acceptable, just make sure the base mascara is considered a lengthening mascara, not thickening. If just using the gel, apply fibers lightly, then gel again to seal them in. Let me know if you have any questions!

  9. I just had a Younique party! I love my 3D lashes and now it's hard to put on make up without doing this too, even if I"m in a hurry, I can't leave home without it now...

  10. This stuff is AMAZING! I recently wore it at my wedding, and I had absolutely no mascara "smears" whatsoever! It was so nice not having the feeling of wearing fake lashes but definitely looking like I had super long lashes! It's easy to put on, no clumping (like she said, light layers) and it made me feel so pretty :) I wear it every day now :)
