My mom recently brought home a new type of mascara for me to try and I can’t deny that I was quite intrigued by it. If you haven’t heard of the Younique 3D Fiber Lashes, it’s a two-step process consisting of a Transplanting Gel and Natural Fibers. The first step is to apply the transplanting gel and then immediately follow up with the fibers. And when they say fibers, they mean fibers. The little fluffy specks of black latch on to the wet gel, essentially thickening the lashes and making them appear extra voluminous.
I tried out this product today, and I have to say that I was really fascinated by the results. I have long lashes but they lack volume. This product gave me the look of lots of long lashes. I followed the instructions, layering the fibers on top of the gel as quickly as possible, and then using the gel again to seal the fibers. I did three coats to get the thickness I desired. However, it is very easy for the fibers to look a little crazy, as they tend to go every which way on the lashes. I used a lash comb to straighten them out and prevent the look of clumps.
I have to admit, the whole process took longer than applying normal mascara would take. Although it took me at least five minutes more, I think that it is certainly worth it. I’m willing to sacrifice five minutes of sleep, and that says a lot!
