Review of Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes

Many women will agree that they were not blessed with amazing lashes. Thus begins the quest for finding a mascara that can give you the length, fullness and gorgeous lashes. There are a ton of mascara’s on the market, however, I have found that finding a great one that combines both length, fullness and does not smudge is not an easy task. My clients ask me all the time if there is an alternative to wear false eyelashes so I know I am not alone in my search.

I recently have been hearing the name Younique from many and hearing about there Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes. The three step process uses the Transplanting Gel and Natural Fibers, to help create the appearance of thickness and volume to your existing lashes. I was fortunate to be given a set of the Moodstruck to test out on my lashes. The pair of wands are packaged in a gorgeous case which makes it easy to keep the two products together in your makeup bag, as one can not be used without the other. First you apply the Transplanting Gel which is dark in color and will remind you of a mascara, in texture. Apply the gel to the top of the lashes and then underneath so as to keep your lashes curled. Next apply the natural fibers to the lashes, which must be done immediately after the gel so that the fibers will stick. Once both eyes have the two steps applied to them it is time for the third and final step, which is actually going over the lashes with the Transplanting Gel. By doing the third step it will set the fibers into place and maintain the gorgeous length and volume. It may take one or two times of applying to get the technique in application down, while it is easy, it is different than using regular mascara.

So, is it worth it? YES! The difference that the 3D Fiber Lashes make to your own lashes is very easy to see, it really does everything. It will give you the look of false eyelashes without the glue and hassle. It is very noticeable without having to use a mirror to see it and if you were taking photographs, your eyes will pop. The 3D Fiber Lashes do come off with makeup remover and are in fact water resistant so you can wear them out in the humidity or cry and they will not smudge.

The set is $29 USD and will last you three months, which is about the time that you should replace mascara in your makeup bag as to keep your products clean and bacteria free. The bottles are generous in size and product so I am sure that it will last and keep giving you those amazing lashes that you have always wanted but were not born with.

Review: Too Faced Jingle All the Way Makeup Set

Whether you are thinking of a holiday gift or a little something special for yourself this Too Faced Makeup Set could be a great option for you.  I personally was immediately drawn in by the packaging and cleverness.  A compact that holds products perfect for a purse and enough that you have a touch-up kit to take on the go.    The compact contains: 11 eyeshadows, a blush, a bronze and a Limited Edition iPhone 5 case designed by interior Mary McDonald (and Bravo TV Star).

First the compact and iPhone case, completely sturdy and good looking in person.  The other thing that I liked was you can flip the makeup around and clip it in backwards so that it stays protected in a purse or makeup bag.

The makeup of course is great quality and the palette contains eye shadows that will work for any skin tone as well as take a day look to an evening look.  For me the shade of the bronzer is a shade that if I use lightly could double as a powder for a quick on the go touch up.

Overall for $25 it is a great gift for a glamour girl and fun to have!  Keep in mind this is a Holliday Limited Edition gift, so it is out now until it sells out.

OCC Fragmented Alice Lip Tar

ImageObsessive Compulsive Cosmetics is a brand that I found several years ago and since then they have blown up and create some amazing products and shades.  The cruelty-free vegan line has rich pigments, incredible staying power and can create both beauty and editorial looks.

There award winning lip tar has become a huge hit, Lip Tar is a hybrid of a lipstick and a lip gloss, the pigment is so saturated that a little goes a long way.  I promise this is one where you really want to apply with a light hand. 

To my surprise I was very interested when I learned that OCC was releasing a new color Lip Tar and it would make its debut at San Diego Comic Con.  Luckily San Diego is my home town so I sent my brother on the mission to acquire the Tar before it hit the shelves.  Why did I go nuts for this?? 

“Fragmented Alice” Lip Tar is a take On Alice in Wonderland.  Symbolist painter Gail Potocki, helped create the color, Inspired by Potocki’s uniquely macabre take on the Alice in Wonderland mythology.  The color is a metallic green, hints of gold and something that is fresh and new.  OCC describes the color as “acid-green, gold laced metallic”.  Packaged with an applicator for $14 USD.

Keeping true with the formula of Lip Tar it is glossy and has a shimmery effect.  Yes the color is definitely green and does have a gold sheen in it.  If you are not sure that you are ready to rock such a strong color, it looks very cool on top of a neutral pink shade and gives your lips a reason for a second glance.  However, if you are not inspired by the color then look into all of the Lip Tar shades and pick a fun one that you would love.

OCC will be conjuring up a limited edition collection full of curious colors inspired by the world of ‘Fragmented Alice’.
