I admit I've had eyelash envy lately. My kids were all blessed with my husbands long luscious eyelashes. Like seriously long. Like touch your eyebrows long. I used to love my eyelashes for their natural curl and not ever having to use an eyelash curler but compared to my hubby/kids... they are super short. So short in fact that my eyelash envy has lead me to start using Latisse. I'm loving my longer lashes thanks to Latisse but I am not great about putting it on every night, don't love the cost and my lashes aren't really any thicker. They didn't quite have that is-she-wearing-fake-eyelashes effect I was hoping for.
That leads me to this product: Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes by Younique. I've seen ads/reviews for this and had been really curious so I was excited to give it a shot. The pitch: get the look of fake eyelashes via mascara. My response: Yes... that's exactly I'm looking for! The result: They work... noticeably thicker and even longer lashes. Like fake eyelashes w/less fuss or worry about them falling off! I heart them.
The application is simple and similar to putting on normal mascara. It ia a 4 step process but I think much easier then applying fake eyelashes. Since I usually do two coats of mascara, an extra two coats wasn't that much more work and it's actually fun because you the transformation of your eyelashes:
- apply your normal mascara (they recommend a cheaper mascara)
- apply the moonstruck transplanting gel
- apply the moonstruck natural fibers
- apply the moonstruck transplanting gel again to lock in the fibers (important!!)
My process: I put on my normal mascara (I use Chanel), put on my eyeliner to give it a second to dry then apply the Moonstruck one eye at a time. The change is dramatic. You basically turn your lashes into what I would describe as mini feather boas. The fibers thicken and lengthen your lashes. I took this to a Chloe Oliver trunk show the other day since I had a captive audience of ladies getting dolled up. We had a blast playing make up and dress up. Several of the gals just did one eye and refused to do the second because the difference was so outstanding.
There are so many videos on Youtube for Moonstruck so I'm embedding one of the better demos that I had seen:
