I love makeup, even though I suck at the application process of it all, and don't have the time to put on a full face without getting up at the crack of DAWN in order to do it. I have to say, I really love to play and experiment with the different looks that I create. I am always looking for things to add to my collection, that can ultimately shortens the time it takes me to apply it all.
I was contacted by the lovely Kate Merle (She is one of the Younique's Presenters. Hi, Kate!) in order to do a review on some Younique products. Many of you have probably already have heard of Younique, this is honestly my first experience with their products and really even hearing about it at all.
When Kate contacted me I set out to find out more about the Younique brand and it's products. She asked me to pick out a few things and give my honest opinion of it. So I picked the 3D Mascara, the Splurge cream eye shadow in "Charming" and the Stiff Upper Lip Stain in "Shy".
To me the easiest things to apply everyday, is a little mascara, a bit of eye shadow, and a lippie and be out the door. Everyday that's my mission. Well, I take that back most days that's my mission, even though most days the mission goes unaccomplished.
Each day I used a different product. Testing it out, finding my likes and dislikes of each one, comparing to my favorite in each category. First up the 3D Mascara, it comes in 2 different tubes.
One tube holds the transplanting gel, and the other holds the fibers. The application of it all is really simple first the gel then the fibers, repeating to build up the length and intensity. This mascara fully replaces my all time favorite, which is the LOreal Volumious Million Lashes, and although it's a two step process it's worth the extra effort.
The Splurge eye shadow cream, has the texture of a mousse, really soft and fluffy. I can use it to accentuate my winged eye liner or put it all over my lid as either color, buffing it out if I want to just add a little sparkle and shine. One thing that I don't like about it, would just be I don't know what to do with it other than simple things like use it as a glitter accent or as a simple lid shade. Right now my usual eye shadows win.
Lastly, came the Stiff Upper Lip Stain. This stain will last for hours without the need to reapply. This now stays in my bag. Although, for a while it's sticky; it won't drink away or kiss away; when its on, it's on and stays put.
I applied a little on my hand to see exactly how long with would stay on. After washing my hands and running through the day it stayed put ALL DAY LONG! Even after taking a shower it was still there (although faintly at this point). This stain is the real deal.
These products are to die for, and worth you at least trying out. I was quite surprised at the end of my tests that 2 out of 3 of them totally replaced my favorites. Check out Kate'sYounique page order a few things, and let her know I sent you over, you won't be sorry!
