Due to my inability to see my own eyes without my glasses on, I have a guest reviewer today; My cutie pie younger Sister Kate (I'm biased, but would you just look at her?!?)
Kate was kind/gullible enough to offer to review the Younique Fiber lash mascara on my behalf.
The mascara consists of a Transplanting Gel and tube of Natural Fibers to help create the appearance of thickness and volume. It comes in a lovely case and looks pretty swish, HOWEVER, I was sceptical. Because I always am. Because I'm crap at makeup.
Kate threw herself into the challenge with the vigour of someone with youth and ability to try new makeup without their face sliding off. These are Kate's lashes in their natural state. As you can see, they're not exactly short but they're definitely not that dramatic (well actually they are compared to mine but I'm basically a mole person)
And this is the outcome - I mean, WOW. They're just so LONG!
Kate sent me the following instructions
"1. I put my own mascara on - a very light layer and let it dry.
2. Put a layer of the glue stuff on immediately followed by a layer of fibres. I did this step three times.
I think you have to be careful how many layers you put on as after the first time I tried it, about 10 mins it was all under my eyes..." (Reviewing PROS in my family, AMIRIGHT?!?)
On the surface I was really impressed but I wanted to know from Kate how the mascara felt, I mean it's all well and good looking amazing but if you can't blink then it's not ideal. Well Kate LOVES it, she did state that it takes some getting used to putting on but when it comes to a big night out or event this will be taking the place of false lashes all the way.
Just a step by step above to show you how much of a difference Younique makes from what I always thought was already quite a dramatic change with the mascara. It's absolutely amazing, when Kate sent the pictures through I refused to accept she wasn't wearing extensions. Sisters lie you see.
Younique is now available in the UK as well as around a lot of the rest of the world. I'm going to have to enlist Kate in doing my lashes for me when I next go out, I don't want to be the letting the family side down...
