Younique Eye Pigments

Younique Sassy 2I am loving on Moodstruck Minerals Pigment Powder by Younique.  These pigments are gorgeous and long-lasting. I have several shades that I have been trying, but right now I am in love with Sassy, which is a pinkish color. I never thought pink eye shadow looked good, but I love it!

Younique is a newer company that is selling products that are chemical free. Their eye pigments contain: mica, titanium dioxide, iron oxide, Bismuth Oxychloride Carmine, and Zinc Oxide. Basically all natural occurring minerals. The container that the moodstruck minerals pigment powder comes in reminds me of bare minerals. You shake a little bit of the pigment powder in the cap and brush it on. I am pretty sure this eyeshadow will last me forever! I barely have to use any to get a completely full-coverage look.

The moodstruck minerals comes in a ton of shades from very dark to very bright! At $10 a shade, I don’t think you can go wrong!

If you are interested in learning more about Younique and their products, contact Heather Jadus, she is a consultant with Younique.

I give props to Younique for being natural and having a great product at great prices!! Two paws up!

Moodstruck Glorious Face & Eye Primer

In my quest to undestand primers, I have once again given a primer a try, this time I tried Younique’s Moodstruck Glorious Face & Eye Primer.  This primer is part of Younique’s line of products that are chemical-free.  The primer is very silky and goes on easy, but you all know how I feel about primer. I just don’t think it does anything!

I have been using it for about a week, but haven’t noticed anything.  The primer doesn’t cause any negative issues, but I am convinced the primer is just a gimmick.  So today I put primer on half my face and took a pic right after my makeup was applied. Then after a full 8+ hour day, I took another picture. (its scary, sorry). I wanted to see if there were any differences at all in the side with primer and the side without. I felt this was really the only way to truly find out if this primer is all that it’s cracked up to be.

See the pictures for yourself and you be the judge. I wore the primer on my left side. In my after pictures I definitely notice more of a shine to that side of the face and it definitely feels greasier than the side without primer. But other than that, I don’t notice anything.

Younique 3D Fiber Lashes

After a brief break I am back to bring you awesome reviews on the latest make-up and beauty products. You can expect to hear from me Wednesdays and Fridays! As always, feel free to email me questions or to request my trying out a product.

Lashes are like the stilettos of your face. They top your look off enhancing your features and drawing attention to your eyes. Most of us, me included, are not blessed with long, lush lashes (although so many guys are, shame). So to make our lashes pop we either experiment with hundreds of different mascaras or try fake eyelashes. I LOVE fake eyelashes. You can do so many different looks with them and they just make you feel sultry, but putting them on can be a process. It’s a 50/50 shot whether I am going to get it on or stuck to my face!

Enter, Younique. A newcomer to the makeup market boasting a line of mineral products that don’t contain harsh ingredients. They also carry Younique 3D Fiber Lashes. These fiber lashes are the bomb! Simply apply a light coat of your favorite mascara then Younique’s transplanting gel followed by the fiber lashes. Bam! You have sultry, lush lashes in seconds.

The pic is of my friend using Younique on her left lashes and regular mascara on her right. I apparently have not yet mastered a mascara selfie 🙂 Younique

I love these lashes and think they are great. I don’t use them on a day-to-day basis but for going out I skip the falsies and go straight to these.

Let me know if you have used these and what your thoughts are. I also have some other products from Younique that I will review as well.
