Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes: Makeup Review

With Product

Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes
Makeup Review

Love it. I love this product! But let's go back in time for a second...

A few weeks ago, an independent Younique consultant contacted me to ask if I would be interested in reviewing Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber lashes. Of course, one of the main themes of my blog is being thrifty and buying secondhand or vintage. Naturally, I never buy used makeup! But I AM always looking for a deal. Rarely am I willing to shuck out the extra bucks unless I feel a product is WORTH it. When it comes to cosmetics, there are things I will and I won't pay extra for. 

This product IS worth it!

At $29 dollars, it won't break the bank, but definitely exceeds the price of drugstore mascara. And it won't replace your regular mascara, as it is meant to be added on to an existing product. However, the results are totally dramatic and instant, and I fell in love with the first use! Read about my experience, application tips, and how to order below! Look for another Younique product review coming soon from Thrift Trick. =)


Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes arrived in a snazzy little case, complete with a set of instructions. The internet is exploding with tips and tutorial videos, like this one from Younique, so it isn't hard to find information on how to enhance your experience with the product.

Here's how I did it: I applied all of my makeup, as normal. Here's what my eyes look like with NO mascara.

No mascara

I applied my normal brand of mascara. My absolute favorite (and what I used here) is L'Oreal Voluminous in Carbon Black. I made sure to apply carefully so that my lashes were as seperated as possible ahead of time. One coat, and I wiggled my application brush back and forth as I applied upwards to ensure good coverage. I let it dry--thoroughly!

I used the Transplanting Gel and Natural Fibers on one eye at a time, ONLY to my upper lashes. My personal preference was that it looked like a little too much when I applied to top and bottom lashes, and though I didn't experience much flaking or any eye irritation, I DID notice that applying the fibers to my bottom lashes increased this problem and looked less natural. When I applied the gel, I made sure the application was quick and not too thick. Afterwards, I carefully applied the Natural Fibers using brisk, upward movements to create length that didn't clump or gather too much in between individual lashes.


I used a cotton swab, rather than an eyelash comb, to remove the extra fibers. I found this to be more effective and less damaging to the fibers than an eyelash comb, though some people prefer to comb lashes afterward. I found that combing through reduced some of the dramatic look that I actually liked, but using a cotton swab instead removed excess fly-a-way fibers very well. I also used a cotton swab, slightly dampened, along the inner rim of my upper and lower lashes to ensure no fibers were trapped. (Expect a few fibers to fall while you apply this product). Throughout the day, I did not experience an excess of falling fibers, though there were a few. Nothing that would prevent me from using the product, and nothing that fell into my eyes or irritated them.

-- If you are looking for a dramatic yet natural lash with little less clumping, apply this product to only your upper lashes, as I did.

--Apply to only one eye at a time, so that you have proper time to carefully (and quickly) apply the Natural Fibers. 

--Use a cotton swab, rather than an eyelash comb, to remove excess fibers and clumping. (I found the comb downplayed my results a bit).

--Make sure your initial application of mascara is as seperated and dry as possible before beginning applicaton.
