Younique Mascara & Mineral Pigment Powder #Review + #Giveaway {Open to U.S.}


Disclosure: I received free products to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own. This blog complies with FTC advertising guidelines. Kara’s Deals & Steals is not responsible for sponsor prize fulfillment.

I’ve never been what you call a “girly girl” until the past few years. My makeup regime has never been extensive. It typically consists of a little eyeliner, a little mascara, maybe some eyeshadow, lip gloss and foundation for my red splotches {especially during the winter}. However, the fact that I am seven months pregnant and not feeling the prettiest, I’ve been wearing make up slightly more often. Thanks to Wendy, my Younique representative, I recently had the chance to try their new Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara and many different colors of Moodstruck Minerals Pigment Powder. My skin has been awful during this pregnancy. I get random acne and my skin is so dry.


Younique is a cosmetics brand that strives to make women feel good about themselves, to uplift, empower and increase self esteem. They are one of the first direct-sales companies to sell almost exclusively through the use of social media with Younique Virtual Parties. Their products are definitely “You”-nique. You can purchase everything from facial cleansers to primer and brushes. The 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara comes in a cute little case that can be thrown into your purse for touch ups throughout a night out or a day at the office. It comes with two bottles with Transplanting Gel and Natural Fibers to give your lashes a 300% increase in thickness and volume. It is water resistant so allows for long term use, but easily comes off with a cloth and warm water.

One thing I am lacking in my make-up collection is fun eyeshadow colors. I love Younique’s Moodstruck Minerals Pigment Powder. The best part about it is that it’s 100% natural, chemical-free and mineral based, free of talc, oils, preservatives, perfumes, synthetic dyes and parabens. The colors are super vibrant. I received about five different colors to try but these powders are available in around 30 different colors so you are sure to find a few you like. I have trouble with a lot of colors because I am so fair skinned, but I am partial to Glamorous.


So you might be wondering, did I just sit around the house and try on this stuff or what? I planned on spending New Year’s Eve with my two daughters and husband at home, drinking sparkling grape juice and watching the events on television. That doesn’t mean I have to sit around in my pajamas, right? My daughters and I decided to get dolled up to watch the ball drop and it was a preview of what the future will be like {they are 2 and 5 years old}.


After I had a fun little session with them, I decided to try out this 3D mascara and see what is does for my lashes. I already have fairly long lashes but they are lightly colored {yes, I was a blonde before I had kids! Not sure what happened there!} and the length is sometimes masked by that. I applied my regular mascara and put Younique to the test.

Younique Look

I feel like my there is definitely a noticeable different in my lashes after using Younique mascara, especially my bottom lashes {that I’ve never really done anything with before}. It opens up my eyes and makes them look bigger. The mineral powder brings out my hazel color and I feel like I can still look “modest” but I actually got a compliment from my husband {who claims he hates when I wear makeup}. I feel like I can actually see the pregnancy glow in these photos as well. I can’t wait to try some of the other pigments!


Be sure to check out Wendy’s Younique store. I can’t say enough positive things about this company. I want more!! Also check out her Facebook page for special deals and information on Younique news and up and coming products.

    I SO want to try those 3D lashes! I have itty bitty lashes and most mascaras don’t do diddly squat for them. Your’s in the after picture are gorgeous!

  2. Jesselyn A/Jesstinger says:

    I just wanted to say that you look lovely in your “after picture” – but you also look lovely in your “before picture.”

    Not just that – but except maybe for evenings out / special occasions, you REALLY do not need mascara! I know this is a review about mascara / eye make-up – but you just naturally have beautiful long (and frankly very alluring) eyelashes all by themselves. I’d kill to have your lashes (great eyebrows too.) Just thought you should know!

    • Wow thank you!! I haven’t waxed my eyebrows in ages and they’ve always been very thick just like the hair on my head! I appreciate the compliments :)

  3. awww :( I wish this was available worldwide…it would be nice to try this and look sultry :) by the way, you do look really lovely :)

  4. I love powdered mineral eyeshadow.. You have a lot of control over how much color you get. If you want a lot try using a wet brush when putting it on. Makes it POP!

    • jeanna have you tried Younique? if you would like to try it out please contact me also looking for girls that would like to sell this as well!! This company was made for facebook!!
