My Review: 3 out of 5 Stars

I heard of Younique and their Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lash Mascara a while back but never tried it. A friend of mine was recently selling it, and I decided to give it a go!

In case you are not familiar, this mascara requires users to first coat lashes with its transplanting gel. While still wet, you must use the second tube of product that contains fibers to lengthen and thicken your original lashes. Then you must seal in the fibers with the transplanting gel. Repeat if necessary. (I did two coats.)

For me, personally, I could tell a difference in the thickness of my lashes immediately. In regards to length, I could never achieve the beautiful lashes I saw in the many success stories. While this could partially be user error, I think results are definitely varied depending on the lashes of each individual person.

My lashes are fairly short and there’s really not a lot of them! You can see in the pictures that there is a difference, but I believe I can achieve a similar look with products that I currently use. And being a slightly pricey mascara at $29, I was hoping to be a little more pleased with the outcome.

As for the ease of application, it was a more time consuming than tradition mascara, but the instructions were easy to follow.

The overall wear of the mascara was good but not excellent in my opinion. After several hours of wearing, some of the fibers fell on my cheeks and under/in my eyes.

While there are pros and cons to this mascara, I still give it a 3 out of 5 stars!

I think for girls with a little more lashes, you can probably create a very glamorous look with the fiber mascara. I love the idea of using a mascara as opposed to false lashes too because those can be a pain and the glue can tear out lashes if not removed properly.

It was relatively easy to use, and I will continue to play with the mascara to see if I can work on the length of mine. I don’t know that I would use this as an every day mascara, but with the holidays coming up, I look forward to trying again and adding a little something special to my look with the Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Mascara!

Happy Thanksgiving Friends!

I hope you are enjoying time with family and friends and eating lots of good food! This is such a great holiday because it not only brings people together but is a time to reflect on all the things for which we are thankful.

I am very thankful for so many blessings in my life and thankful for each of you that take the time to read and comment on my blog! Palmetto Couture has been a blast to create, and I can’t wait to see where I can take it.

Today I am taking it easy with my parents, doing some online shopping (I love some deals!) and taking a great, big nap!

I will also get a jump-start on writing out my Christmas cards and pulling some Christmas decorations out of the attic if I’m feeling energetic! What will you be doing today?

I hope you are able to enjoy your day and remember to be thankful for everything not only today but everyday. And again, thank you so much for supporting Palmetto Couture!

“That my glory may sing your praise and not be silent. O Lord, my God, I will give thanks to you forever.” Psalms 30: 12

Palmetto Couture is a fashion and lifestyle blog that will focus on what I’m wearing, fashion suggestions, beauty routines, and other parts of my life.

My goal is to show you great looks that are chic, mostly affordable and ultimately, stand the test of time! I love classic pieces because they can be worn season to season, but it is always fun to throw in a trendy item like a fringe bag, or other wild accessory, to jazz up an outfit.
