A good friend recently gave me the Younique Moonstruck 3D Fiber Lashes as a Christmas gift. I’ve been wanting to try this product, but in all honesty, I found it a bit gimmick-y after watching YouTube reviews. So, suffice it to say, I was skeptical but excited!
What Are 3D Fiber Lashes?
This system is a dual product system using a transplanting gel that looks similar to any high volume mascara and a small wand of fibers. The fibers are made from green tea and are 100% natural. They do not harm natural lashes and wash off easily with cleanser or eye makeup remover. It comes in the quilted eye-glasses style case (shown above), which is pretty sturdy. Inside, you’ll find both the transplanting gel and the fibers. (shown below).
So, how do these work?
Apply your makeup as you normally would.
First, you apply one coat of regular mascara as if it were any other day. For this, I used my favorite every day mascara, the L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Excess, which I have reviewed here.
Next, apply one coat of the transplanting gel. This feels like any other high volume mascara, and very much like Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. It can be a tad messy, and be forewarned, it stains clothing. However, I feel like you could wear this as a regular mascara. It contains collagen (for plumping), nylon (for thickening), and beeswax (anti-inflammatory). In addition, the transplanting gel also contains carnauba (Brazilian Palm Glue) as its adhesive for the fibers.
Before the transplanting gel dries completely, apply the fibers. They aren’t super noticeable as you put them on, but they may fall onto your cheeks a bit as you apply. Don’t worry, they brush off easily and do not contain pigment that will leave traces on your makeup or your clothing. After you have applied the fibers, follow up with one coat of transplanting gel to seal the fibers onto the natural lashes.
And when you are done, this is your final result – Long Massively Voluminous Lashes!
While this stuff is awesome, I would not wear it every day. It’s a bit dramatic for an every day look, and it does take a few extra minutes of time. If you’re like me — always running late or running out of time in the mornings — this feels like a bit of a faff or hassle. However, for a night out or special occasion, I love it! One thing I was worried about was removal. This is just as simple and easy to remove as any regular mascara, and it doesn’t pull your regular lashes out. Just to give you some extra visuals, here are a few comparison photos.
