There has been many years where I have dreamed of having long lashes.
I have spent my time wasting half hour each day using glue and false lashes which have left my own lashes ( or more of lack of them) being ripped out by the glue that has been slathered among them.
My children were all blessed with gorgeous long lashes and I fear that I merely was drawn the short straw (literally) .
The other week a lovely presenter from Younique approached me , asking if I would like to give the new 3D Fibre Lashes a try .
Having heard so many great things from beauty bloggers, family and friends , I was merely excited initially but also weary too , especially after hearing that some were having some rather irritating issues with the product.
The only way to know was to give them a try myself and wow I am so pleased I did, you will see why when you see the results yourself.
First of all , Younique 3D fibre lash results looked almost too good to be true in my opinion and this is why I was excited to see what actually happened when I applied them to my very short lashes.
Like I said before, my lashes are so short that I actually never thought there would be much length added by the product .
Here is a little about the product before I show you my thoughts and results.
Where to buy -
I would love for you to purchase from the Younique Presenter who I received my product from . Please do not buy from Amazon, Ebay or anywhere that is not incorporated with Younique themselves as they do not allow their product to be sold on those and such sites alike.
If you do , you are more than likely purchasing a fake which can be dangerous and harmful to your eyes.
Cost - £23

My thoughts on Younique 3D Fibre Lashes-
My first impressions were of the case that came with the product.
Wow, I absolutely love a product that has its own case and this is gorgeous.
It reminds me of a leather casing for sunglasses, solid and flip open style in sleek shadowed black .
You also get a full instruction sheet which tells you how to use the product .
Before using the product , I was informed to use my own mascara before applying the transplanting gel .
The mascara that I chose is Smashbox Extreme as it is the only mascara that adds volume to my eyes , unfortunately only a tiny bit of length which is where the 3D fibre mascara needs to help me along.
Using the Transplanting gel , I applied it to my lashes concentrating on the ends rather than the whole area just as I would my mascara.
Over the past couple of weeks, I have overheard people talking and complaining about the fibres getting into their eyes and irritating them.
This has then led to them not achieving the full benefit of the Younique 3D Fibre lashes and to me is such a shame , just give it another try but try it my way.
My advice is that you stay clear from applying the product to the beds of the lashes .
Your looking to add length not volume or depth , using this product on the ends, will not only give you a much more natural length to your lashes but also a more natural look .
Make sure you apply the fibres while the transplanting gel is still sticky .
Here are the results -
Are you as amazed with the results as I was?
Honestly, I had no idea that this product was actually going to work and listening to others experiences with this , I was a little superficial .
This result was surprisingly surprising to me , it really was .
I am rarely overly excited about products, this is the first product in a while that I have actually had pleasure in using and that has actually given me instant and transforming results.
For me, finally having a fluttering lash that looks natural and not glued on is something of an achievement.
The transplanting gel I am pleased to see has not been clased as a mascara, instead they named it correctly as the product does not add anything in respect of a mascara for your eyes , essential to the whole product , this is what helps keep the fibres on the lashes and also seals it to stay on afterwards.
The fibres are very fine and light so when applied, your eyes do not feel heavy like they would with a false lash strip , nor do they look out of place and unnatural .
The fibres are meant to be a temporary measure (just like false lashes used for a day) but unlike mascara gives extra effect and lengthier lashes which are easy to remove by washing with your everyday eye makeup remover just as normal .
You can build up the dramatic look by applying more fibres whilst in between applications applying the transplanting gel to ensure the product builds up and stays put.
I did not apply the product to my bottom lashes as for me , I personally do not like that look on myself.
There are a few products from Younique that are quite appealing and I would love to give them a try such as Their Precision Eyeliners and their Glorious face and eye primer .
I actually thought this product would just be another craze, another hype, another fake love to better the brand , but in fact , I am actually very impressed and the product has wowed me more than I thought it would.
The wands are just perfect for handling, the case itself is perfect for carrying everywhere with you , even for taking away on holiday and weekend stays .
For me my first impression and experience with Younique is a top score , there has nothing that has put a downer on this product for me, even the price is worth paying .
So what are your thoughts now that you have seen the results of my first attempt at the Younique 3D Fibre Lashes, will you be giving them a try?
