Not really a fan. People who have this either love it or hate it. Seems like there's no middle ground. I fall into the "hate" category.

1. It's way too much work. When I use this, I have to literally sit there doing JUST my eyelashes for 10-15 minutes. Who wants to bother with this??

2. Irritation. Thank God I didn't have some of the experiences that others have had. I did however, always have irritation while using this. I went SO SLOW when i used this stuff. I made sure I didn't swipe the wand close to my eyes, I started mid-lash and worked my way up. It didn't matter how careful I was, those fibers love to stick to your lash line and get all up in there and under the eyelid. It HURTS. Every single time I've used this mascara, I've spent the night rubbing my eyes, tearing up, blinking, and basically just having a night ruined because of these things getting into my eye crevices.

3. The damn fibers!!! I followed the directions to the T. It didn't matter. That "setting gel" or whatever it was, felt like nothing. It was almost like nothing was even in the tube. I never felt like my lashes were being coated, or sealed. At the end of every application I had those fibers all over my face, inside my eyeballs, on my nose, my cheeks. I literally do not get this mascara at all.

4. End result? Super clumpy. Obscenely clumpy. Clumpy as in: I had to take it off and start over because I looked ridiculous. I even used lash brushes, applied in a "side to side" motion. Clumpy. Clumpy with a hairy face.

5. Price. For a 3-month shelf life, $40 with tax/shipping is ridiculous. I just purchased a mascara that I found at Marshall's for $2.99. (It honestly works better than Younique!) Don't be fooled by the price tag. More expensive does not mean it's a better product. Especially for all of those who have developed serious eye conditions, you're PAYING just to put God knows what in your eyes!

You can put $40 to better use than on this mascara.

It was a good mascara but sometimes it would work and sometimes it wouldn't. To apply I found it easiest to clean your eyelashes with makeup remover first otherwise it would become very clumpy. What was annoying was the constant flaking of the fibers and it was a little hard to apply.

What I liked:
1.My lashes look dramatically longer and thicker with this product. My eyelashes fall out occassionally and grow back (slowly) so I need a mascara that really lengthens.
2. Stays put.

What I didn't like:
1. The price. Too expensive.
2. Too many steps. You have to layer the lash fibers to achieve a dramatic look. Step 1 you have to use the gel as a base for the fibers to stick to, then you "seal" the fibers with a layer of the "transplanting gel" over them. It takes me longer to do my lashes with this product than my whole face. I don't like fussy makeup.
3. The fibers make the mascara look flaky and if you're not careful putting it on, it looks clumpy. If you're after a natural look, this isn't it.
4. Because these are fibers, they do flake off onto our face and under your eye if you do the lower lashes. I stopped using it on the lower lashes and used regualr mascara...yet another step. Also, you have to be gentle pulling the fiber wand out of the tube because the fibers will fly off and float in the air like little fethers.

This might be a good mascara for hitting the town if you want a drmatic look, but not for every least not for me. I prefer a 5 minute face (total).

This is my new holy grain mascara! I was really skeptical about trying this and thought the before/afters had to be fake. Well, let me tell you: the results you get with this are real! You have to be a little careful and light handed in order to apply the fibers evenly and avoid clumping, but if you do this, and comb your lashes gently, you will have the best lashes ever. I haven't tried the new 3D formula but I can't wait because I've heard even better things about it! I highly recommend. If you don't like it the first time you use it, keep practicing with it, because if you're too heavy-handed, you'll clump and it will look weird. I do not work for Younique. :)

RUN FOR THE HILLS! PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF YOUR SKIN AND YOUR HEALTH DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. It caused and extreme reaction to my eyes and I got dermatitis AKA hundreds of bumps all over my eyes that I have had for 6 months and have still not entirely gone away. In the meantime I haven't been allowed to put any products on my face whatsoever including soap. I've been put on 4 different heavy antibiotics and it still hasn't done the job.

I have never had an allergic reaction to makeup and I have used them all from cheap pharmacy products to the high end designer lines. I can not stress enough how sketchy this product is. There is a reason they don't include the ingredients on the box. It is dangerous. Definitely not worth the risk. Even if you don't have a crazy reaction like I did, (which I didn't the first few times I used it, but my body built up an intolerance to it) you know for sure that you are putting fiberglass or some kind of crap on your body/in your eyes.

I don't know how these people can sell this product in good conscience. I am sure they will be sued at some point. I have never written a review before, but I created this account so I could tell my story and hopefully save a few people from a huge mistake.

I have read with interest reviews on this product although I have been unable to read them all but thought I would warn you what this product has done to me and for you to think twice about purchasing it or, I expect, any similar.

I purchased my mascara/s in December 2014 but stopped using it in February 2014 due to the fibres always falling out, etc. I couldn't be done with it and went back to my high street brand.

Shortly after stopping, I was suffering from what I referred to as a 'watery eye'. When this came on it was usually late evening and very painful, causing lack of sleep. It also made me sensitive to light, so much so I had to wear sunglasses the next day at work. One time it would be in my left eye and then the other time,a month/2 weeks, later would be in my right eye. This repeated for the following months.

I did panic the first time and thought my eyeball was going to pop out due to the amount of water which was seeping. After realising that didn't happen, I didn't worry thereafter as the 'watery eye' appeared to last just 24 hours and therefore I didn't think I needed it seen to and put a couple of times down to cat hair getting into my eye or such like. Over time the 'watery eye' was becoming more frequent so I decided to visit my optician. I was advised to immediately go to A&E to the Moorfields Eye Department with a suspected ulcer on my eyeball. I was shocked but obviously did as I was told.

After some tests at the hospital, I was advised that I did not have an ulcer, I had "Recurrent Corneal Erosion Syndrome' (which I had never heard of) and was advised that this is usually caused from trauma to the eye. I questioned whether I really had been clever enough to do this to both eyes?!

For the week after my visit to the hospital, I had to administer antibiotic eye drops 4 times a day and also artificial tears 4 times a day (8 times a day in all) that meant no eye make-up for me that week which was both traumatic and liberating.

I returned to the hospital for a check up a week later, happy with my eye feeling much better but not 100%.

I now need to finish the course of artificial eye drops which will be for the next 2 months, 4 x a day and to add to this, I now, for the next year (!) have to put an eye gel in both eyes every evening which I will need to buy every 28 days.

After reviewing what the hospital advised and having no knowledge of any trauma i.e. poking/bashing myself in BOTH eyes at a similar time, I have come to the realisation that at the exact same time I started getting 'watery eye' was the exact same time I had purchased this product and was in fact struggling with the falling fibres.

I do believe that it was this product which caused all of this. Beware!!

Let me first start off saying I am not a presenter and I typically do not buy from companies like this (Mary Kay, Arbonne, etc). I find them overpriced and tend to find the sales reps/presenters pushy and it makes me uncomfortable. Haha that being said, I tried this product because I am also a sucker for anything that promises long pretty lashes. My lashes are short, grow straight out or down, hold no curl, and are non existent without multiple coats of waterproof mascara and multiple curls with an eyelash curler. My lash routine was high maintenence to the extreme and my lashes were taking a beating. After getting a bald spot in my lashes, I knew I had to find a new product. I ordered this because an old college friend was selling it on Facebook. I went back and forth but after days of seeing pics of her, her family, friends and their fabulous results, I rationalized it was worth helping out a friend, right? At first I wasn't super impressed. I got clumps and fallout throughout the day. I'm the type that likes to research beauty products and will spend countless hours trying to make products work for me. I found after months of playing with it on and off and watching tutorials, I was able to get a routine down to make the most of this product. It truly does make my lashes insanely long and somehow keeps them curled despite not being a waterproof formula.

I prefer using it WITHOUT a base mascara. I curl my lashes, gently apply the gel, kind of rolling the brush through my lashes and then LIGHTLY apply the fibers sweeping up from the middle to tips of the lashes immediately on the first eye only. Then move on the second eye, using same steps. THEN go back to original eye after fibers have dried and apply the second coat of the gel. Depending on where I'm going, I may add a second coat of fibers for extra drama especially on the outer corners. I find doing it this way I get little to no clumping and no fallout throughout the day. This process takes me less time then my old lash routine using multiple mascaras for voluminzing and lengthening. I only use this on my top lashes.

The price is steep and I hate having to pay shipping on top of it, but I have yet to find a mascara that yields results anywhere close to this (I've tried everything from high end to drugstore). If you're not willing to play around and find what works for you, you may not be a fan of this because I sure wasn't at first. It definitley will create spider lashes if not applied correctly. And if you're one of those lucky ladies that already can create pretty lashes using normal mascara, then I wouldn't bother with this. But if you're like me with wimpy lashes and feel like you've used every mascara out there and nothing is giving you the length or look you want, this is worth a shot. It's not the easiest product to work with at first but once you get the hang of it, it's like magic. Really looking forward to trying their new re-vamped version once I run out of what I have.

ETA: If you're ordering this from Amazon, you're getting counterfeit product. This could be the reason for some of the people complaining about burning/stinging their eyes. My mom and sister got it off Amazon and it's definitely not the same product. There's a reason it was so cheap.

This product burnt my eyes really bad. Not only does it sting, but the fibre sticks into and falls in your eye, and the product is way over priced.

I find this mascara to be very over rated. Yes it makes your lashes look thicker and longer but it also makes my lashes stick to each other. I have to use a eye lash separator which is a pain in the ass. It's very expensive and I was told there is only a 3 month shelf life. As if I would buy a 35.00 mascara every 3 months. I also didn't like the fibers. They had trouble sticking to my lashes. I won't buy this again

This stuff is amazing! Let me repeat: AM-A-A-A-ZING! I have short, stubby, sparse lashes with no color. In other words, my eyes look bald, even with permanent eyeliner. To add insult, my eyes are extremely sensitive, and even expensive mascara will often make them burn. Plus, even the waterproof mascaras eventually leave me looking like a raccoon... probably because I like to use moisturizers around my eyes.

So I originally bought this product to help a friend, who was trying to raise money for a specific purpose by having a Younique party. Omigosh, I am so so glad I did!!!

I can only assume that the people who don't like this product or had problems with it either bought a cheaper knock-off or aren't following the directions, which clearly say to start with the gel (mascara) add the fibers, and FINISH WITH THE GEL. If you don't finish up with the gel the fibers are going to fall off onto your face. I can truthfully say that I have never had a fiber fall off, my eyes never get raccoon-ized, and they are never irritated. In fact, I totally forget that I have this product on, and I'm often surprised when I look in the mirror.

It did take some practice, especially to keep the "spiders" from occurring, but eventually I learned how to separate the lashes better and have a smoother look. I still can't do the lower lashes well, mostly because they're practically non-existent and they really did look like spiders or a 60's Twiggy look, so I just use the mascara/gel without the fibers.

Sure, 30 bucks sounds like a lot for mascara, but if it works it's totally worth it.
