Younique 3D Fiber Lash Mascara - Product Review

Yay, a post about girl stuff!  Although one could argue that an entire blog about breast cancer contains nothing but posts about girl stuff, I think my friend Charles would disagree.

I am still in the midst of writing up my graduation experience - I want to share that with you properly. In the meantime, I created a video which is posted on my YouTube channel about an amazing product. Long time readers know that I don't clutter my blog with product reviews unless I truly love the product and it actually works. This is both.

Upon watching it, it looked a bit uneven in the video, and that's because it's hard to make a video and put on makeup!  But a lash comb evened it out and I didn't want to redo it - I think it shows how very long my lashes appeared. (Try to switch to the HD version if you have that capability.) I also forgot to mention the product is 100% natural, there isn't lead in it like other fiber products.) I've put on three coats before, and it's just amazing, they look like false lashes or extensions. Perfect also for hooded eyes, which I obviously have - we need our lashes or it appears we don't have eyes at all.

In case you were wondering, I took it off easily with a makeup remover towelette, and Emily told me coconut oil also works. That nap I mentioned?   I did take it with the mascara on, and it didn't leave marks on my pillowcase!  I have not tried it in a situation where my eyes water but I'm hopeful it will stay put since it did when I slept.  I will let you know.

Disclosure:  I did not get paid for this review - I only received the review product.  All proceeds from any sale go to Emily (who sent me the product). She was kind enough to offer to give it to me,  but I said no. She found me because her mother had breast cancer and also ended up with skimpy lashes, a common problem, and this product helped her mom - anybody who wants to help their mom deserves to make a bit of money!  So Emily sent me the mascara to try, no strings attached,  and I liked it enough to do a video and embed it here.  It is $29.00, which might sound a lot if you are used to buying drugstore mascara, but it is inline with the cost of a high-end mascara. I use Blinc which costs $25.00, and this works much, much better.  You do get your money's worth if you can afford it.  It's a lot cheaper than Latisse.

If you mention you came from my blog, she will send you samples from other products, I think to the first five people but she seemed flexible.

I highly recommend you try Younique Products sold by Emily 

Here is a direct link to buy the mascara alone.

I'm eyeing that rosewater for myself.

If anybody has a product they have heard about for cancer patients and want me to review it for them, let me know.  If I can buy it myself, I will, no need to send me anything.   If you are a vendor and have something you want me to try, email me.  Be forewarned: very few will end up on this blog as I am not turning it into an advertising vehicle.  It will be for YouTube and Facebook.

Next up will be my graduation story.

I am very tempted to end the blog with that story of triumph and should be the last post, don't you think?  But not to fear, I'll keep writing.


  1. No, it should not be the last post. You still have to graduate him from college, and that should be good for lots and lots words. No slackin', Ann.

    And yes, I will definitely order the lashes. They are nothing short of amazing.

  2. They really are! I love mine. I flutter my lashes like a teenager. :)

  3. I can't wait to try these! Thanks for the videos, they are fun and helpful. Mine grew back thin and blah . I look forward to reading about the graduation day too!

  4. Video was great! Thanks for sharing. What is the name of the eyelash curler used in the video and where did you purchase?

    1. It's a Sephora brand, purchased at Sephora. Works great and doesn't pinch. I was actually looking for the heated comb one but they were out - now I'm glad they were as I like this one better.

  5. I just got my mascara and love it! Thank you for the tip.

    1. I'm so glad you liked it the way I did It's good to hear, thanks for sharing!

  6. Just placed my order. Can't wait. My lashes are pathetic after chemo.

  7. The USPS conspired to deliver my package two days late, but it finally arrived yesterday. I tried out one eye last night right before bed just to see how the process works. Today I applied to both eyes, top and bottom. I didn't bother to apply mascara first, because I was hoping for a natural look for daytime, and that's exactly what I got. I imagine that with the mascara, my eyelashes will seem to be a mile long.

    I'm in love.

    Emily can count on regular reorders from me because, having used it just once, I cannot live without Younique 3D Lashes. Amazing, just amazing.

    Thanks, Ann, for the tip.
