How I get Luscious Lashes
It’s no secret that I’m lash obsessed. When I was in college, my roommates and I would take turns applying those individual lashes by Ardell for our Thursday nights out. I got pretty good at it and they would all ask me to help put theirs on for them. We would wear them non stop! Literally until the glue disintegrated or until we couldn’t take it anymore and we pulled them off. Ew. Then we’d start all over again. Not the healthiest way to do it, but definitely effective.
When I was pregnant with my son my husband told me about a magical elixir called Latisse. It GREW lashes! Some women were reporting that their lashes were growing so long they had to trim them! I couldn’t wait to try it. But I couldn’t be pregnant or nursing, so it did take a bit of time. Eventually, I got my prescription and paid the pricey fee for the magic stuff. Then I had to wait 16 LONG weeks to see my results. But my oh my, the results were absolutely worth the wait!

Last year my mom was at the hair salon and bought me some new fangled mascara. She said the lady at the salon put it on several women and the results were amazing! I had to see what this was all about. The mascara I’m talking about is called Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes. It has two tubes. One is the transplanting gel and one is the 3D Fibers. The eye on your right my naked eye and the eye on the left is with Younique. At first I was a little intimidated, but the results definitely made the effort worth the extra effort. I mean, BAM!

As always, I have a few thoughts on this situation. First, Younique takes more time than normal to apply. You have to put on a coat of regular mascara, let that dry, then the transplanting gel, then the fibers, then the gel. In the above pic I have about three coats of the fibers, meaning I did the gel, fibers, gel three times. That’s more than my usual routine. But I think it’s great for a night out, and a little much for every day. Second, you really have to play around with it before you figure out what’s right for you. Lastly, you can’t just walk into Sephora and pick it up. You can only get it from a rep. I highly recommend Carly Kendrick. She’s very fast and very professional. You can contact Carly through her Facebook page: Lash Boss Lady. However, I still use and love the stuff! I get asked about my lashes all the time. And my response is always, “You too can have these lashes!”.
At my Momtourage MNO tonight I’m going away Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes from Carly, the Lash Boss Lady. Woohoo! If you can’t make the MNO tonight, you can learn more about this mascara by checking out Carly’s Facebook page: Lash Boss Lady.
