Although I don’t post a lot on makeup and beauty, that doesn’t mean that I don’t have an arsenal of makeup and beauty products and ones that I can’t live without. With a New Year approaching who doesn't want to try some new beauty products?! New Year, New You (nique)!
I had never tried Younique products prior to my friend Stephanie introducing them to me. Stephanie is a teacher, a momma and she sells Younique on the side and raves about their products. While I don’t wear a lot of makeup, I do love my essentials: mascara, eyeliner, lip liner, lip gloss and bronzer. Stephanie let me choose any products that I was interested in trying out.
I decided to go with the popular and new formula of their 3D+ Mascara, Lucrative Lip Gloss, Precision Liners, Beachfront Bronzer, Glorious Face and Eye Primer. Younique cosmetics development processes utilize scientific research to ensure that their products contain high quality ingredients that enrich and nourish the skin. The result is a beautifully efficacious product that is safely compatible with virtually every skin type.
This mascara is Younique’s claim to fame (I believe), and for good reason. I really love this mascara, the volume and length that the mascara and the fibres provide for your lashes. It is $35 dollars and comparable in price to high end mascaras, I find that this one is way better in providing your lashes with length and volume. Loved this! I will definitely be repurchasing this product!
Lucrative Lip Gloss
I am a lip gloss freak! I have at least 5 lip glosses in each of my purses. One thing that I hate about glosses are the ones that are super sticky and ones that taste yucky. Lucky for you, these Younique lip glosses are sheer with some colour, but also smell great and are not sticky. Win, Win. Oh and there are tonnes of colours to choose from.
I chose two precision liners, one lip and one eye. Both of which I really like. They are made with jojoba oil and synthetic wax for smooth application and long lasting finish. What I really loved it that they’re waterproof, smudge-proof (nothing worse then raccoon eyes) and long-wearing. Similar to the lip glosses, the colour choices are endless.
This is one product I am always nervous to try as a new product because I like what I like. The problem with a lot of bronzers is they tend to make you look orange, not cool. What I really liked about the beachfront bronzer is that one half is matte and the other half is shimmer. The colour payoff is great, not too much, but just enough. Fabulous.
Glorious Face and Eye Primer
Prior to this primer, I have never used one before. I don’t wear foundation so I never really saw the reason to. This primer has changed my mind. It glides on nicely and a little goes a long way. The primer claims to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles and make your make-up last forever. I do agree that it has increased my makeups longevity. What’s neat, It can be used on face, eyelids or even in your hair to smooth frizzies.
I did like all of the Younique products, my two favourites were the mascara and the primer. Here and here are a couple posts where I'm wearing Younique products.
