I never like to admit it, but I have some super short lashes. Honestly, out of everyone in my family I am the only one with short lashes. All of my siblings have long lashes, my hubby and my all three of my sons have lashes to die for and I was just left out of the gene pool I guess. lol So since I have always had problems with my lashes I have used expensive serums in the past for lash growth – they work, but they are temporary and you need to keep up with them in order to keep your lashes long. I also have a good layering technique I use with my favorite mascaras, which works pretty well too. But, a few weeks ago I was sent Younique’s Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes for review and I have definitely been enjoying it.
The photo above was taken with my cell phone and what my lashes look like at arms length using the 3D Fiber lashes from Younique. Normally it is pretty difficult to see my lashes when I’m using a bold are dark liner and this case my liner is thick and winged out so it can be difficult to see the difference. But as you can see in the photo – my lashes are peaking through the liner.

The photo above is a comparison taken on the same day within a 15 minute time frame. As you can see there really is a big difference with how my lashes look before and after the application. In the before image, I do not have on any makeup (any look of eyeliner on my eyes is actually from my tattooed eyeliner and not actual liner applied), the after image I have applied 2 coats of the Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lash. The Fiber Lash retails for just $29.00 on the website, which is a steal considering a lot of higher end brands offer similar price points.
In the photo above, I am using just one coat of Younique’s Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lash over one of my favorite mascaras – Elizabeth Mott’s It’s So Big Volumizing Mascara. With just one coat of the 3D Fiber Lash – I can already see my lashes very well without having to worry about them getting lost in my makeup look.
In the photo above, I am also using the Younique Fiber Lash (one coat) over my Elizabeth Mott It’s So Big Mascara. I really took the time in this look to make sure that all of my lashes were separated well so that it was not clumped and had a feather-like look. I really loved how it came out.
While it did offer me longer lashes and I didn’t mind the look it gave me – there are some points I definitely want to touch base on… First, it can be a bit tricky to work with this mascara or in applying. The fibers can get everywhere and I like to lean over a mirror or something that can catch the fibers should they fall. I also have super sensitive eyes and the fibers can be a pain when they get into your eyes, which for me is inevitable. Since they are not waterproof – I found that with a little tearing, I can be left with the fibers in my tear ducts and it’s really uncomfortable. If you are someone who doesn’t have sensitive eyes and you have the time to work with applying this mascara, then all in all – this mascara / lash fiber duo is definitely awesome and in my opinion a great buy. If you have sensitive eyes or need a quick look and be out the door, I probably would skip on these a bit. While you do not need short or thin lashes like I have to use this product, (you can have gorgeous long lashes) I know it will just make your lashes “show stopping” regardless of length. There are just a few things you need to consider when using it and if those things don’t necessarily bother you, then I think it’s worth a try. Don’t forget to watch my video review as it has much more information, tips and even a demo of the product – this post is more for photos and comparisons. Review embedded below.
Thank you so much Adriana for giving me the opportunity to try this awesome product. 😉
