In short, there are three simple steps to long, sexy lashes, using Younique’s 3D Mascara:
1)Apply an even coat of Transplanting Gel (mascara) to lashes.
2)Immediately Apply Natural Fibers while Transplanting Gel is wet.
3)Seal the fibers with Transplanting Gel. (Repeat until you’ve reached desired fullness, if you want them even longer.)
Q: Where can I buy/purchase/order the new formula?
A: Online at thelashrebel.com
Q: Where else can I get the fiber mascara?
A: Younique is not available in stores, and is sold entirely by Presenters, online at specific websites, and in person. Items on ebay, Amazon, and the like are not authentic Younique products, and can not be guaranteed by the company.
Q: Did Younique change their formula for their fiber mascara?
A: Yes. In July 2015, there was a limited release of the new formula, with the enhanced version being available to the public in August 2015.
Q: Why were these changes made?
A: The changes were made, to bring safer, better products to our customers. They are now completely paraben free, ophalomogist tested, hypoallergenic, and conditioning. While not every ingredient is “all natural”, sometimes man made ingredients are safer than what nature makes. When the choice came down to nature that could hurt you, or science that would not, science won. In addition, with the product being made in the US, it was easier for Younique to completely control not only the ingredients, but also the work enviroment of the people making it.
Q: What changed, with the new fiber mascara?
A: Honestly, almost everything. In holding to their promise to bring the safest, and best products to our customers, the formula was reformulated in it’s entirety. From removing questionable ingredients, to going through rigorous testing by opthamologists, Younique made sure the new product was something we could all feel better about.
Q: Where is the new 3D mascara made?
A: Entirely in the United States. However, the new formula meets the EU standards of compliance, with are stricter than US standards.
Q: Why does the 3D Fiber Lashes+ come in two tubes?
A: To keep the two companents separate. With two separate tubes, it means you control the gel to fiber ratio. Want even longer, thicker lashes? Add more fibers in the second step. Want lashes that look more natural? Use less fibers, and concentrate on the transplanting gel.
Q: Since I have to apply what comes down to three coats of product, doesn’t it take longer to apply, than my old mascara?
A: There is a learning curve to the product, as there is with anything new. Once tou practice a few times, you get the hang of it, and applying the 3D Lashes is no more time consuming than putting on 2 or more coats of mascara – in addition, length is achieved faster with the fiber lashes, than it is with regular mascara.
Q: What are the new fibers made from?
