Younique Review + Giveaway + …YOUTUBE?!

Eeeek! There’s a LOT of exciting stuff going on in today’s post!!

Younique

Okay, so surely you’ve at least heard about the brand Younique at some point …they’re the company that may have single handedly introduced fiber mascara to the world, in turn, creating a following of die-hard fans! If you’re like me, that may be all you’ve ever heard.

Recently, Shannon [Lazy Gal Glam], a Younique presenter, [and someone that I actually grew up with!] came across my blog + sent me an e-mail explaining that she sells these products! She told me a little bit about their stuff, and asked if I’d be interested in trying anything. I was definitely intrigued, but admitted that I didn’t really know much about the brand + was completely unaware that they sold anything other than mascara!

Once she shared some more information about the line, I was + eager to try out the goods!

A few days later, Shannon so generously sent me a box full of products + I could not wait to play with them! 🙂

younique products I tested + photographed everything, but once I sat down to write my reviews, I realized that the post was going to be prettyyy long. So instead, I figured it would be the perfect opportunity to film my first official YouTube video!

Check it out + let me know your honest feedback!!  🙂 Warning: I was a little nervous!!

A few other things worth mentioning:
  • Younique makeup uses cruelty-free, hypo-allergenic products that are free of harmful chemicals!
  • There’s a 30 day love it or money return policy, and a 60-90 day exchange or replacement policy.
  • It’s easy to become a presenter + sell the products yourself! If you’re interested in getting into this business, you could join Shannon’s team for $99. You’d receive a box with a full size mascara, self tanning lotion, 1 cream shadow, 1 eyeshadow palette, 2 eyeshadow brushes, 1 package of shine makeup removing wipes & samples of almost everything. You’d never have to pay that again & you’d receive at least a 20% discount forever with no obligation to actually work it as a business! Click here to learn more!

Okay, back to the makeup! Here are all of the products I discussed in the video. –>

3Dfiber lash mascara

Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes – definitely a fan; they’re perfect for a special event or occasion!

moodstruck

Moodstruck Precision Liquid Liner – I love the design + usually have decent luck with thin liquid liner markers, but I had trouble applying this product. It seemed to run dry very quickly for me. It wasn’t my favorite, but I’m going to give it a couple more tries! 🙂

beachfron bronzer

Beachfront Brozer [Malibu] – OBSESSED! It’s a really deep shade with a hint of shimmer. My new Summer bronzer!

touch

Mineral Touch Skin Perfecting Concealer [Velour] – I was incredibly impressed with the coverage this provided! It applies so creamy + smooth. A tiny bit goes a really long way!

Lipgloss2

Lucrative Lipgloss [Loveable] – This is one of my favorite shades of gloss. I’m not sure there’s a better color for Summer!

you

I have to say, aside from the liner mishap, I really am pretty darn impressed with this stuff!

    I’ve always been a lash obsessed gal so I’m definitely intrigued by their fiber lash mascara. My only concern is I have sensitive and also wear contacts does this stuff start to flake into your eyes after a while?

      I don’t have contacts, but I’ve heard positive reviews from people do! Personally, I didn’t notice any flaking once applied…it can definitely be a little messy WHILE applying, but afterwards, it was fine for the rest of the day!! 🙂 Thanks for reading, girlie!! XO

    By far my favorite post! I love all the pics you have to show off the products. I’ve heard of Younique but never tried it. How does it compare to other brands? Is the bronzer build able without looking too fake? Thanks doll!

      You’re so sweet, thank you! The quality of the products really was impressive. I was not expecting them to be as great as they were. A little bit of bronzer goes a long way. I really load it on in the AM lol…so I think it’s definitely buildable. It’s got wonderful coverage and all day wear! 🙂 Thanks for reading! XOXO

        I really have no complaints about the concealer — I haven’t noticed any caking + it lasts very well all day! The lip color has not dried out my lips, although I’ve been applying it over a lipstick…but it’s not sticky in the least – which I love!!

        Hahaha! I feel like there’s a lot of competition in the Younique/It Works/Jamberry world lol. I wish there was something I was really passionate about that I could sell on my own! Who knows, maybe one dayyy! 🙂

      Yay!!! The bronzer is amazing! I am so in love with it! I wanted to give one away, but I figured everyone has different skin tones/shade preferences. 😦 But I definitely recommend it! Thank you so much for reading, I really appreciate it!! XOXO 🙂

        You are welcome! I noticed that you make a lot of the same facial expressions I did when I made mine. lol Made me feel better. 🙂 Yours looked cute though lol. I didn’t even leave mine up. I made it, showed it to my fitness group that I was coaching, and down it went haha. Great job being brave! Loved your little side kick too 😉

    We loved your video! We’ve been wanting to do one too for our doggie subscription box reviews, but like you were, we are too nervous, LOL. I’ve been out of the makeup game for so long it seems! I’d love to try the fiber mascara. Being Asian, I have short straight lashes and it drives me crazy!

    I’m the same way as you, I put my face makeup on before my eyes. I use MAC’s liquid liner to draw on my eyeliner and wing and then go over it with an actual eyeliner gel. MAC’s defiantly goes on over foundation and eyeliner, it just doesn’t have the staying power, hence the reason I go over it with a gel. 🙂

    Good luck on your YouTube venture and hope to see more videos!

      I would LOVE to see you two on video!! If you muster up the courage, I think you’d be amazing!! I’m taking note on your mac liquid liner suggestion – I have yet to come across one that works really well for me. Thank you so much for reading/watching + supporting, it means so much! 🙂 XOXOX

      Thank you! That means so much to me, it’s definitely a little intimidating, but now that the first one is out of the way, I think the rest will be a little easier! 🙂 Honestly, that bronzer is incredible. It’s been my go-to everyday since I received it. I wanted to give away the bronzer/concealer, but everyones skin tones are so different, I felt like the gloss/mascara combo would be better suited for anyone who entered. Thank you so much for reading/watching/supporting/commenting – I appreciate it so much! XOXOX

    I’m so excited you started to incorporate videos to go with your blog! You definitely didn’t seem nervous at all, though. I really liked watching it. I hear about Younique products all the time and constantly get invited to join (kind of like all the ItWorks representatives). I’ve usually just ignore them, so I’m really glad to see your honest opinions!

      Thank you so much, I’m glad you liked it! Video is a completely different ball game, but it’s kind of fun. I’m really happy to hear such positive feedback. And I totallllllly hear you on the Younique/ItWorks…my personal favorite is Jamberry lolol. But I honestly + truly was pretty impressed with Younique! The mascara is great, but I think it’s comparable to other fiber lash products I’ve tried, but the bronzer + concealer are phenomenal. The lipgloss wears very well +makes for a perfect summer color. 🙂

    I’ve never tried any of the products, but I know several people who sell it and love it. These pics are so good and you look stunning (as always!). I’m so excited you started a YouTube. I am YouTube junkie and I’m always looking for new people to watch. I can’t wait to watch the video later.

    I really want to try the concealer! I’ve had such a big problem trying to find one that gives me a lot of coverage because my skin can get really red and blotchy!

      This concealer is really incredible! It’s very creamy + super high coverage. You honestly only need to use the tiniest dab. I’ve been using it almost every day – very very happy with the product!
