Younique by Ginger Black
I have been wanting to try the fabulous mascara from Younique ever since I found out about them. Due to my tight budget, it hasn't been an option. So when presenter Ginger Black asked me to do a review for her, I was ecstatic! How could I say no to that?
In addition to the Moodstruck Mascara, Ginger also sent me the Mineral Touch Pressed Powder in Scarlet, and one of their Moodstruck Mineral Pigments, in Sassy. The cool part is that I received everything right before my birthday. In fact, I got the powder, and the Sassy the day before. So, that just made it extra special.
The pictures I took for the review sadly, did not turn out right. It's not the best camera, and photography is not my best skill. It all worked out though, thanks to Ginger, and my friend and one of my former models Paula, I was able to get some pictures to use for the review.
I started out with the powder, and silly me, I used a bit too much the first time. I'm already pale enough as it is, and I pretty much looked like a ghost. I was impressed with the coverage though. Lately, I've been having some break outs, and it was as if I had no acne at all. The next time, I used less, and it gave my skin a very nice glow. I've used other powders and foundations in the past, and was not comfortable with them at all. They always leave my skin feeling either oily, or dry. I don't like that "caked on" feeling makeup gives. This powder doesn't feel that way to me. It's very light, and I don't feel like my face is going to melt off. The color is Scarlet, and it's a good one for fair skin. Just make sure you don't do what I did the first time. You don't need much!
Then came my favorite part! The mascara! Holy smokes!!! All I can say is it is THE best mascara I have ever used! My lashes have never looked better! I don't think I can ever go back to what I was using before. I was warned about that.
At first, I was a little skeptical. I've seen some girls go a little overboard with it, and yet I've also seen it look natural and glamorous. I was so blown away with the results. I really wish the pictures would have turned out, so that I could show them to you. I'm really not someone who likes to boast, but I have to say they looked fabulous! Not only did my lashes look fabulous, I felt fabulous! I haven't had the opportunity to wear them while out with friends yet, but I can't wait to show them off!
Since my pictures didn't turn out, Paula was kind enough to allow me to use hers!
Here she is looking fabulous as always! Thank you so much for helping
me out with this, Paula!
To a lot of people, it might seem expensive. I never would have imagined spending $30 on a mascara, but now that I have tried it for myself, I can honestly say it is worth it! Plus, it is so easy to apply. Only 3 simple steps.
Step 1: apply the gel. Step 2: apply the fibers. Step 3: seal the deal and
apply another coat of the gel.
Believe me when I tell you, you will be amazed!
Now I am really looking forward to trying the new 3D mascara, and I'm hoping to get to try out one of the lip stains as well. If you haven't tried the mascara yet, you really aught to consider. You might also want to check out some of the other products they offer. For more information, or to make a purchase, please stop by Ginger's website. If you do decide to try it, I'd love to hear from you. I'd love to know what you think.
If you have already tried it, I'd love to get your thoughts. What did you like about it? What didn't you like about it? What is your favorite product from Younique?
