What Are Some New Younique Products for 2019?

What Are Some of the New Younique Products for 2019?

As the a new year will soon be upon us, I thought we’d take a look to see what some of the New Younique products for 2019 might be. Now admittedly I don’t have a crystal ball, or an inside scoop on what’s happening at HQ, but I do have some ideas of what may be on the horizon when it comes to new Younique products for 2019. Some of these products are not brand, brand, new, as in they exist in some form already so bear with me on that score.

1. YOUNIQUE™ Fragrance Rollerballs

First up let’s talk about these cute YOUNIQUE™ Fragrance Rollerballs. Darling or what? I like the first three fragrances a lot. I had yet to buy With All That I am Me but decided to buy the Rollerball version today – along with the December Kudos which I discuss at the end of this post (there’s even a wee video!!)

Perfume is a very personal thing, so I was not sure if I’d like them all when they launched, but honestly I do, all three. One is kept in my car, one in the living room (where I put on my makeup!) and one in my swim bag. Look forward to trying the new Rollerball when it arrives next week, as it will be perfect to carry around with me daily in my purse or backpack. (Yes, I still travel with a backpack most days, I’m a trainer after all!) It’s also the right size for travel on planes which is handy!

Possibly Holographic Stick - One of the new Younique Products for 2019

2. MOODSTRUCK® Holographic Highlighter Stick and MOODSTRUCK® Holographic Lip Gloss

You can see the Holographic products above – one is a Highlighter Stick and the other a classy little Lip Gloss. Don’t know much about these products of yet to be honest with you but I do look forward to trying them out at some point…

Younique Nail Polish and You-Ology Makeup Remover

3. YOU·OLOGY Liquid Makeup Remover

This liquid makeup solution is designed to dissolve makeup in minutes. All you have to do is shake the bottle, apply the liquid to cotton pad, rub it on, and then rinse with warm water. Then my friends, you’re good to go,…to bed. Ha! Look forward to trying this one too actually.

Sounds pretty good to me!

Other Potential New Younique Products for 2019 – I’ve Not Covered

Other ones I was going to discuss were – the Younique Nail Polish (pictured above left) which looks great. I nearly bought it but at the last minute didn’t. Also the Liquid Eye Shadows, (we’d already had one in Beachfront) but now I see there are others. No idea when the new shades arrived. Must have missed that memo! I also was going to discuss the  MOODSTRUCK® Lip Exfoliator in Peppermint, but we’ve already had the original for a while.

Not sure if Peppermint will be a year round thing or just around the holidays. Do you know?

Summary of New Younique Products for 2019

As it stands, here at the beginning of December, I do see some of these products mentioned are now available on the site. Some are not. Some may come and some may have been one-offs.

One thing about Younique, which I really like, is that you never really know what’s coming next.

Are there any products you wish Younique would do but hasn’t already done yet? If so, let me know in the comments below.

Finally – Younique’s December 2018 Customer Kudos

Celebrate the holidays, or any days/nights this year, in glittery starlight with a bundle to remember. Elegant and glamorous, this Younique bundle lets you save on more exquisite skin, twinkly eyes and luminous lips, and includes a buildable, exclusive glitter eyeliner in White Gold.

I just bought one of these bundles today, and imagine I might just get another before the year is out! I wanted to order the Touch Liquid Mineral Foundation and Glorious Primer and for the same price as those two I got two more products!

4 Years with Younique – My Youniqueversary

My 4 Years with Younique4 Years with Younique – I’m Still Here

It is hard to believe it’s my Younique anniversary again and it’s now 4 years with  Younique. Where does the time go? What has happened in that time? What level have I gotten to? Why have I been 4 years with Younique and haven’t given up when so many people have? What’s been my experience with recruiting Younique presenters? What are my fave products? This is just another post about my experience of Younique – after four years of being a presenter.

The First Year with Younique

In the first year I was all excited. I was creating blog posts. I was sharing pictures all over social media. I was getting sales from family, friends and strangers. I was moving up the ladder. I was enthusiastic. It’s how almost all new business owners act…especially in direct sales. That excitement is bleeding out of your pores but it’s often short lived and reality sets in as you realise running a business, MLM or otherwise is hard graft. You have to ascertain what works and what doesn’t.

In a business like Younique the marketing for me, as chosen from day one, was online marketing and not hosting parties. Other people would be successful at those online parties but I know from the start that was now my bag. Nor was having in home parties. My way was social media, all the way.

Month 1: I hit Fast Start and Tiered up to Yellow

I joined Younique on Oct 25, 2014 – a week before its UK launch. My aim was to hit “Fast Start” and tier up to Yellow Status so I could get that pay bump from 20% to 25%!

I reached Yellow by the last day of November, month one as a Younique presenter and a week later managed to say Hello “Fast Start”. 

My Mascara Business

Buy 3D FIber Lashes+ Mascara from Younique by TheaBack in the day, for the first year especially, I traveled around with the Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara in my bag. I bought in bulk (10 at a time) and always had one ready to sell, and did often!

That year it really was about the Fiber Mascara. For the next year too. Not long after there was the launch of the 3D Fiber Lashes+.

For some reason though my own mascara sales started to dwindle down. The people who were buying every few months were not doing so any more. That coincided with more similar brands and my own marketing efforts tailing off.

Younique Sponsorships Over the Years

I don’t actively attempt to sponsor new Younique recruits, yet I still manage to recruit a few every feew months. Recruits join my Younique team, mostly through my blogging efforts here (my main business blog) and through a very successful post from my early days with Younique – which is over on Linkedin.

The Youniques that I tend to sponsor seem to want to do their own thing, and need or want little, if any support. I am always happy to give any advice, tips and support, but most just seem to want to do their own thing.

My first recruit was a guy and an owner of a hair salon here in Paisley. Then a friend and business coach joined, another friend and so on…Eventually it became people I don’t know. To date, I have now sponsored nearly forty Younique presenters!

Though it sounds great to claim, many don’t last past the first three to six months, which is super disappointing.

Only one has lasted throughout nearly my entire time with the company. Lovely Lucy Wilkinson who joined in June of 2015 and has been a rock star ever since both in terms of selling and recruiting.

Highlights of My 4 Years With Younique

Pink then Blue Status - Younique by Thea

In addition to my early feats of Yellow and Fast Start, I hit Pink November 29, 2015 (a year and a bit after joining Younique) and seemingly a day later tiered up to Blue Status…? That doesn’t make sense to me, but I guess it doesn’t matter at this point. I’ve been stuck at blue ever since.

Another milestone I was so excited to reach was 10,000 PRS. That means I have sold over ten thousand dollars worth or products. Sadly I didn’t earn $10,000 but it was still an exciting moment in March of 2016.

A Younique Summary

Looking back over my 4 years with Younique, the peaks and valleys have been many. It’s been challenging and fun in equal measure. It’s been frustrating and satisfying. I’ve learned a lot about myself, about business and about others.

Historically my best month with Younique seems to be November which makes me wonder if I should make a bit of extra effort and see if I can capitalise on some Black Friday and Holiday sales. It’s worth a shot.

The collections are always worth a push.

Younique is Not For Everyone but It Is for Me

“Younique is not for Everyone” is a sentence I’ve said dozens of times over the four years here.

These days I mostly just run my Younique business for me. I buy my own products, at a discount and to get free credits for future purchases.

I do little to promote or recruit. I still periodically share products on some social media channels, but my focus is elsewhere (on tshirts and merch now).

But you know what? That, to me, is one of the best things of running an MLM (or Direct Sales) business, is that, with the right one, you can pick it up and put it down as it suits you. Work it when you can and don’t when you can’t.

Of course the more you work it the more likely you will see some rewards.

Being Younique is not easy, as I’ve said through the years on this blog. If my own experience is one to go by, more people quit than persevere with it.

So if you’re considering joining Younique – please bear that in mind. It’s not a way to get a quick buck (or pound or euro or whatever currency in your market).  It takes effort, grit and the right mindset. Can you make money it? Sure. Will you? Maybe. Maybe not.

Reach Out to Me With Questions

As I mentioned I don’t actively recruit but I am still happy to sponsor and help anyone who needs it.

Top Scots – 5 of My Fave Scottish Phrases

Top Scots – 5 of My Fave Scottish Phrases

Top Scots - Five of My Fave Scottish Phrases5 of My Fave Scottish Phrases

In the spirit of transparency, I’m a Californian by birth and honorary Scot by choice. I’ve officially lived longer in Scotland than I have in America (and no I’ve not lost my accent). In any event, I feel I am perfectly within my rights to share some of my best Scottish words and Phrases – in no particular order.

Understand that I am defining them from my own perspective or interpretation, and they may not be the textbook definition. Please share your top Scots words or phrases in the comments below and any constructive feedback on my definitions.

Five Fave Top Scots Sayings As Follows:

      1. “Whatever’s for ye won’t go by ye”. 
        This one is actually my number one Scottish saying of all time. It essentially means if something is meant to be or happen, it will. If it’s not for you, it will not happen. Que sera sera. It’s words to live by. It’s written and said in a number of ways, sometimes you will hear it as “whit’s for ye’ll no go past ye”.
        Whatever's for ye won't go by ye
        Also seen as”Whit’s fur ye’ll no go by ye! (or even “past ye”). As it’s said a number of different ways I’ve made this design a lot. Well, I did say I loved it most!
      2. “Away ye go” – Away You Go.
        Sometimes it’s said in its entirety “away ye go ya mug ye”. This is a fantastic Scottish phrase to say to the person to stop talking nonsense, rubbish, or even crazy. To me it literally means go away and stop being so silly.I also love the similarly sounding slang “Awa’ and bile yer heid”…Which translates as “Away and boil your head”. Sounds terrible but it just means you’re a bit cheesed off at listening to someone talk utter nonsense.Away Ye Go - Scottish for stop talking rubbish
      3. “Yer a long time deid”You’re a long time dead.
        Some sound advice here from the Scots. As a Scottish proverb it translates as: “Be happy while you’re living, for you’re a long time dead”. It’s a sort of ode to the Latin phrase carpe diem.
        yer a long time deid - you're gonna have to make the most of life
      4. Gonnae No’ Dae That Going to not do that.
        Gonnae no do that sort of means “please stop doing that”,  you’re bugging me.To me this is a rather funny way to stay just stop it. The Scots saying rose to prominence courtesy of Chewin the Fat – as you can see from this somewhat disgusting clip uttering the phrase:

    5.“Geein’ it Laldy” (Also Giein’ it Laldy) – Giving it Gusto
    I would translate this as belting something out like a song. So a band could be geein’ it laldy or maybe someone singing some karaoke in the pub. I used it in a tweet the other day about a concert on in Bellahouston Park.

    Geein it Laldy - Funny Scottish Phrases

A Few Final Scottish Phrases

The hardest thing about doing these designs for my online shops is the variations in spelling and phrases. I already mentioned the different ways of saying “whatever’s for ye’ll no by ye” but there are many. I had a discussion on my Facebook profile a few months back about “Away the Messages” and “Gaun the messages”. It carried on to about a hundred comments. Some people saying it without the word “the” in it and some people writing “for” as “fur” or “fir”. It can all be terribly confusing to be honest. So I often try to make a few different versions to cover my bases.

Share Your Scottish PhrasesShare Your Top Scottish Phrases

I have been reading, researching, writing, creating all kinds of Scottish phrases and words content…Even after living here for a few decades I learn new phrases all the time. I never tire of hearing some of these Scots phrases though I would rarely if ever use them myself. I can’t pull it off with a Californian accent.

What’s your Top Scottish phrase (or phrases) to use or that you’ve heard? Please feel free to share with me in the comments below. I’d love to hear yours.

New Product Shades & Younique Kudos – March 2018

Younique Product Shades - younique by thea

New Younique Product Shades & Kudos March 2018

I have been very remiss with Younique blogging, and so it’s high time I wrote an update about the New Younique Product Shades and this month’s Kudos too. I don’t seem to have much time to focus on the Younique business so it’s taken a bit of a backseat to life. There were the holidays, downsizing my father’s place, being sick and my new t-shirt business too. That all meant that my Younique biz slid. That’s one of the beauties of running a direct sales business is the flexibility to work it as and when you can. Now if you want to be successful and focus on it as your main business you need to do that with consistency. But if you have a full time job already, like makeup and just want some discounts and a bit of extra money then joining Younique (or something like it) might be just the ticket for you.

MOODSTRUCK® Pressed Shadow 8 Palette A custom palette filled with eight MOODSTRUCK® pressed shadows.

MOODSTRUCK® Pressed Shadow Palettes

Oh how I do love these MOODSTRUCK® pressed shadow palettes! “Your mood, your palette, your way”! So true. I like that you can try to pick your shades that you will actually use. Half of the palettes I have (I have all five of the Younique Moodstruck Addiction Shadow Palettes) are either not used at all or nearly empty! So with these news palettes you get to choose your own and there are many to choose from!

You can actually choose eight eye shadow colours here…or get the Quad palette (4 shades) here.

I absolutely adore some of these shades. I couldn’t rock either of the blue ones, I don’t think (though my eyes are sort of the bottom left one), but most of the other new Younique Product shades I could get away with…

Younique by Thea

Younique March 2018 Kudos

Triple Sizzle £56 (30% OFF RETAIL) Three seriously steamy products for your eyes and lips. With endless colour combinations to choose from, this bundle is about to deliver triple-digit heat. I adore the shadows as I said, and the Epic Mascara is pretty awesome too. If I buy it, that will mean my Splash Lipstick can be given as a gift. Not a big fan of the Splashes. Love all the other lip products though the stains, the glosses and the sticks…Splashes just are too bold for me. Anyway – to each their own. I have plenty of friends who are bold! Check out the March Customer Kudos here.

New Younique 2017 Products – Aug/Sept

Get ready for the New Younique 2017 Products – released in August and September. There are quite a few to talk about today some of the August ones.

There is, of course, the new Moodstruck Epic Mascara! I got mine, and I am digging it I have to say. Check out this Epic video from Younique’s Instagram!

What Else Does Younique 2017 Have In Store?

MOODSTRUCK ESTEEM LASH SERUM - Shop Younique by Thea todayThere is also a new Moostruck Esteem Lash Serum which I only just used for the first time yesterday so I don’t have enough data to tell you about it. I can say it’s a small wand like applicator with a little white tip and of course it’s a serum…

This Esteem Serum is said to increase “lash volume by up to 39% and longer-looking lashes by up to 29% after four weeks of twice daily application”. You can find more information about this product on my Younique website where you can download the Esteem Lash Serum Fact Sheet. (As of today it’s on back order. Sorry).

Moodstruck Pressed Shadow Quad Palette
New Moodstruck Press Powder Quad Palette or Single

These new Moodstruck Press Powders are cute as can be (if a wee bit pricey). You can buy them one at a time in Single Press) or buy the Quad Palette (meaning you get four shadows in the Palette). Definitely be cashing in some Y-cash for some of these…or maybe a 1/2 price voucher (think I have 14 at present count).

Love the fact that you can, according to the Younique website “customize your palette with the colors you love.”

Sometimes you get a Palette and you only use a few colours in them…in this case you can get the ones you love. How great is that?

UPDATED 2018: Darceys Candles – Special Offer Lady Darcey Meets Mr Darcey

UPDATE – NOT DOING DARCEYS CANDLES ANY MORE

Mr Darcey Ltd Edition Candle from Darceys With Lady Darcey too

Special Offer – Lady Darcey Meets Mr Darcey

Hello all! Just wanted to quickly tell you about the latest special offer with Darceys Candles. You can pick up a large, gorgeous candle with two glorious scents – Mr Darcey and Lady Darcey – at a special price £15.00.

Large Darceys Candles are usually £17.50 so you’re getting a deal on a limited edition candle. This candle will only be available for a week (possibly two if it’s extended) but it is a special edition.

The Mr Darcey Scent

This limited edition Mr Darcey scent is as you’d expect – both masculine and strong!

The large Mr Darcey candle features black pepper, mandarin, cardamom, clove, leather and finished with sandalwood.

Sound sexy doesn’t it?

Lady Darcey

Hey guess what? It’s not only the sexy Mr Darcey in this doubler candle. The second scent you’ll find is Lady Darcey  -which begins with top notes of green leafy ferns and sweet florals; followed by jasmine and white floral lily; sitting on a floral musk base note.

Doesn’t that sound simply heavenly and just a little romantic?

Oh my!

Who wouldn’t want a bit of romance, like this, in their life?

(Sadly Mr Darcey himself is not included…)

About Darceys Candles

Major News – Cards, Cosmetics, Candles but No Coffee!

Major News - Cards, Cosmetics, Candles

Major News – Cards, Cosmetics, Candles but No Coffee!

Time for some pretty major news, in a few areas, not just for me, but for others as well…

First of all, I think we should start off with the most major news and that is that Phoenix Trading is effectively no more. It wasn’t a business I particularly “worked” as such, but I did like their products as did ALL of my customers.

The people I feel most empathy for were the ones who focused all their energy only on Phoenix. They will be effected the most. The good news is that there are already plans a foot to re-launch a new business, but I have decided to effectively bow out.

Besides, I can still get any cards I’d like via my upline Janet who I suspect will be a part of the new company.

In the mean time, you can pick up some deals in the “Closing Down Sale” over on my Phoenix Shop.

Additionally, ALL MY CARDS here in Glasgow are £1.00 in a flash sale sort of vein. I probably have about 100 cards here from all occasions so let me know if you want in on the bargain cards! 🙂

New Younique Products

Grab the new Younique lash trip now!

I am so pleased to say that Younique has brought out a new mascara…It’s normal one called Epic which I hear is just that. Have just ordered one for myself so I will let you know in a future blog just how epic it is. 🙂 In addition to the new Moodstruck Epic Mascara there is also a new lash serum too. You can get those two items, plus the flagship 3D Fiber Lashes Plus–  together in a bundle called the Moodstruck Ultimate Lash Trio. When you get that bundle you save some money which is always a bonus.

Speaking of Bundles. The August 2017 Customer Kudos is called The Younique Foundation Bundle and is for a really good cause – the Younique Foundation.  What comes in the Foundation Bundle?

Note: All proceeds from this very special bundle will be donated to The Younique Foundation, an organization that inspires hope in women who were sexually abused as children or adolescents by providing healing services through retreats, survivor communities, and online resources.

Coffee No More

There is also news on the Neart Coffee front. For those who don’t know, I was going to launch my own brand of coffee which was called Neart. It was going to be “roasted and posted directly to you from the Scottish Highlands”… but now that coffee brand is now firmly parked in the “long term car park of ideas”.

It really just never quite felt right and I had to let it go to make way for something else to come in.

There really were just so many issues with logistics.

I am still convinced the idea is good and am proud of what I achieved but it was just not quite there. There may be something to say about that later on down the road, and there may not.

So what it did end up making way for was Candles…

Darceys Candles

For those who are like me, and basically love smelly things, such as candles, wax melts, diffusers, scented beads et al, then you’ll dig this.

I recently joined Darceys Candles.

Darceys is an Ayrshire-based company that makes handmade soy candles and wax melts in particular. The idea, like many other direct sales companies is to have people host parties (both real and virtual), but regular readers to my blog will know I don’t go in for that sort of thing.

I know they work for some people but not so much for me.

I do have some brochures – which I need to get circulating – and I’ll blog about them from time to time, but that’ll be the extent of my efforts for Darceys Candles.

That said a week ago I posted the special offer of the week on my FB profile and three people nabbed it…so I may end up working Darceys more yet, we’ll see. They’re top selling product is called Monkey Farts…which smells a whole lot better than it sounds. Seriously,…

Oh, and speaking of which, please note that we can only order products once a week, because they are all handmade…So if you’re in or near Glasgow, and would like to order some Darceys, then please let me know and I’ll throw your order in with one of my own bundles.

You can phone me on 0141 416 1492, email me here, or leave a comment.

Ralph Says

Finally one last bit of news if you can call it that is that I have created a new brand all about my father (and best friend) Ralph. It’s called Ralph Says Things (his own hashtag is #Ralphsays),…

There is a Ralph Says blog, a Ralph Says Facebook page and a Ralph Says Twitter profile and of course a Ralph Says Instagram too.
