Younique Moodstruck 3D Fibre Lashes Review

It was my birthday a few weeks ago and one of the gifts I was given was the Younique Moodstruck 3D Fibre Lashes which I'm going to review for you today. This is the first time I have ever used a fibre mascara but I have always been intrigued by the extreme before and after pictures and 'hype' that goes along with these kinds of products. This is a two-part product with one tube of 'transplanting gel' (this is a lot like a traditional mascara) and a tube of 3D fibres, you apply one coat of mascara then immediately apply the fibres before sealing everything with another coat of the mascara.

The packaging of this product is nice, they come in a cardboard box with some instructions inside and the two products are sealed in a pouch allowing you to store the two steps together. When I first opened up the 3D fibres I felt a little nervous, it's a small wand totally covered in tiny fibres which look like they could easily get in the eyes but I decided to give it a go regardless...eeeek! I open up both tubes so I can apply the fibres immediately after the transplanting gel and do one eye at a time so the mascara doesn't have time to dry (this is how I would recommend using the product for best results). The transplanting gel applies like any another mascara although I feel like the formula is quite dry, once that's applied you sweep on the fibres to add thickness and length and seal everything in place with another coat of gel.

 This product does make your lashes look fuller and more dramatic although it does look a bit clumpy, if you don't mind a slightly spidery lash look then I think you would enjoy this mascara. The tiny fibres do sometimes fall down on the face but they can easily be removed with a fluffy make-up brush if you have very sensitive eyes they may get irritated so just be careful. I personally think this mascara does work but I don't think the extra effort of using two products and applying multiple layers is worth the results you get, I prefer using a really good standard mascara like the L'Oreal Lash Paradise (click here to read my first impressions). Overall I think this fibre mascara is overhyped and I won't be repurchasing it in the future although I also don't think it's a terrible product, it does do what it claims and gives a boost to your lashes it just doesn't give an effect that I love.
