Mascara -Younique -3D Fiber Lashes Mascara Set


I just looooooooove it when American Younique sellers PM me stupid sales pitches on makeupalley because they saw my NZ account post a negative review for an Urban Decay mascara! It's made even better when they try to guilt trip rape survivors into buying their BS products because they claim to donate to sexual violence charities when in reality it's less than 1% of revenue and the same man is suspiciously behind Younique Products, Younique Foundation, and a second charity called Defend Innocence.

If you're so desperate for sales that you have to resort to PMing complete strangers 13,000km away because you've turned all of your friends and family against you, then take a damn hint and look into how much money you've lost, Abbydabby1995.

Liquid -Younique -Mineral Touch Liquid Foundation

on 4/18/2018 11:43:00 AM


I had been tempted to try this stuff for a LONG time. Everybody's seen the amazing reviews where the girls are putting sharpies all over their face and covering it up. Coverage isn't a huge issue for me. I prefer a medium to full but building is fine. I actually tried this for the colour. I've tried SO MANY foundations in the past and can never get the colour quite right. (Although, this is my own fault. I should have gotten professionally matched, but whatever.)

Originally, the Younique rep matched me with Organza, the second lightest shade but I decide to try the colour Velour after watching several youtube videos and looking at some pictures. I hate looking like a corpse when I use a light foundation and end up having to bronze the shit out of my face. The price of the foundation is pretty steep, so I had pretty high hopes. I also purchased the pricey brush because I figured, go big or go home right?

I received my package in the mail about an hour ago. And score, they accidentally sent me 2 of them. (SHH!) So if it turns out I love this foundation, that's a big plus. I did a bit of priming with some cheap primer, and went for it. I did exactly as I was told, applying some foundation drops to the brush and applied in a circular motion.

THIS COLOUR IS PERFECT. Spot frickin on. It matches great, without leaving me looking deathly pale or orange in any way. It does like it says, goes on liquid, but finishes as a powder. Excellent. I don't have much to do today, but I'll be checking in on the foundation periodically to see how it's looking throughout the day. I did put on quite a bit, as I decided to try going as full coverage as I could. I don't really have any issues with acne, but I've got a few random freckles I like to hide, so we'll see how that goes.

I'm not sure if this would be great on oily skin, as it's quite liquidy to begin with. And if I didn't get 2 of them I'd probably complain about the price. You don't even get a full fluid oz for over $40. Tomorrow I'll probably try applying it with a different method to see how it is without the brush.

I want to like this stuff. And so far I do. But like I said, my biggest issue here was the colour. And Velour is fantastic.

BB Cream -Younique -BB Flawless

on 3/26/2018 8:32:00 PM

This product I love! It has become my favorite BB Cream! Love the coverage, not too heavy, not too thin, just right! Not cakey or pastey, but a perfect matte finish! Does not crack or crease in your lines (wrinkles). I would gift this product, it's that good! Truly a leaves a flawless finish!

Pressed Powders -Younique -Mineral Touch Pressed Powder

on 3/10/2018 9:43:00 AM

Literally one of the worst powders I've ever used. It was very drying and very cakey. Very disappointed in the quality. You could buy any pressed powder from Walmart and it would be better than this pressed powder, that's how bad it was!

Lips -Younique -Moodstruck Stiff Upper Lip Stain

on 3/1/2018 9:38:00 AM

I got a handful of shades from this line to review and have to echo what most reviewers have said. The colors that I received are all bright, garish and unwearable, and they also bleed like crazy while simultaneously drying out my lips. I hate everything about them. And at $26 a piece? I can't even believe that pricing. Any drugstore brand for $3-8 a tube will outperform these.
