Did You Buy a Fake Fiber Lash Mascara?

Did You Buy a Fake Fiber Lash Mascara?Did You Buy a Fake Fiber Lash Mascara?

Have you just bought some cheap, 3D Fiber Lashes of eBay or Amazon assuming they were real Younique mascaras? Well bad news, they are almost definitely fakes no matter how real they seem.

Several months back, I blogged about the difference between Real vs Fake Younique 3D Fiber Lashes. If you’re unsure whether yours is a fake, then read that article.

The post regularly has comments from bargain hunters looking to score a cheap deal on these popular 3D fiber mascaras…only to find out they ended up buying 3D lash knock-offs.

Has that happened to you? I really want to hear from those of you who got caught out by these impostors. Maybe we can do our bit to clamp down on the fraudsters.

If it happened to you, please know that you’re not the other only one. Every day, just about, I am hearing from pissed-off-purchases of these counterfeit mascaras from all over the world.

Name & Shame the Counterfeit Makeup Sellers

Counterfeit makeup is big business around the world. But what you get for cheap may cost you in the long run – given that in some instances 200 times the safe limit of chemicals can be found in them!

What’s really scary, is how many people are buying these Younique fakes – because they don’t know any better. Then they receive them and they look so “real” that it can be hard to spot the difference!

Real and Fake 3D Fiber Lash Mascara - Beware Cheap skates!

Please Note

  • Some fakes have bar codes and some do not. (So that’s NOT necessarily the way to tell if they are fake)
  • The boxes and logo/branding are slightly different.
  • The address details are different on the real vs fake (LLC vs Products).
  • The transplanting gel stinks on the fakes. If yours has any sort of stench, it is definitely fake!

The one on the left is my picture of a set of 3D Fiber Lash mascaras that I bought via my own Younique by Thea website…(Sadly, I cut off the 4-digit number below the barcode. I’ll have to take another when my next bulk order comes in).

The one on the right was sent by a lovely visitor called “Bel” just yesterday. She sent that and some other images of her bulk purchase from a seller on eBay in Australia.

The seller claims to have gotten them from a “YouNique distributor based in Singapore” – which, of course, there is no such thing!!

Once again – you will not find REAL Younique 3D Fiber Lash Mascara anywhere on eBay, Amazon, Craiglist or Gumtree or anything of that sort. Our genuine, best-selling, Younique product, sold by actual Younique presenters, can only be sold on our own, individual Younique websites. We are prohibited from using any of those sites our terms and conditions.

The only way I could see any real ones on there is if a person sold theirs as an “unwanted gift” but really how could tell you until you bought it. Please don’t take that risk.

Wherever you are in the world though, you can buy 3D Fiber Lashes here.

I’d like to hear from you in the comments below. Have you purchased some 3D mascara that you thought was from Younique only to find it’s not the real mccoy? Where did you buy them and who from? Did you try to get your money back? Did you succeed? Do you have any pictures you can send of the fakes?

What would you like to do now?

10 Reasons to Join Younique

Is it Time to Join Younique?

If you’re here it’s likely because you’ve been searching for information about joining Younique. Maybe you’re looking to find a sponsor, to work out if “Younique is a scam” or “a horrible pyramid scheme” or too good to be true? Or perhaps you stumbled across this when looking for how to get your hand on some 3D Fiber Lashes?

Well I have lots serious articles about what it’s like to be a Younique presenter, answering lots of questions in my Younique FAQs – but today I simply thought I’d share with you my 10 reasons why you should join Younique or at least to consider joining…

1) FUN

Younique is FUN
Let’s face it, of all the things you can be doing, or selling in this world, makeup is a totally FUN offering! So if you like makeup, and are looking for a sociable business that is FUN, then this is the one. You get to try, buy, and apply makeup to your heart’s content. You can party online or off. It’s totally up to you! The most important thing is to have FUN with it! I do…

 2) FAB

Younique is FAB

Younique sells fabulous, naturally-based makeup and skincare products. If you are all about your natural, mineral-based, paraben-free, makeup that doesn’t contain harmful chemicals and is hypo-allergenic, then you’ll feel great selling these products every day. Many of the products are even 100% natural, some are even vegan, and all of which are cruelty-free.

If you care what you wear, then wear this!

3) FLEXIBLE

Younique is Flexi
Want a Flexi-time business? Work as little or as much as you want and wherever you want. If you want to run it full time, you can, or if you just want to give it an hour or two of week, that’s ok too. Work at home, in an office, a coffee shop or when waiting to pick up your kids at school. Work on a computer, a tablet or your smart phone. Work at the beach or by the pool if you want (I’ve done it, and I love that!) Younique is a totally flexible business. Do your thing – your way, it’s all ok!

4) FAST

Younique is FAST
Are you ready to go? When you are ready to join Younique, it takes just minutes to sign up. As a Younique presenter, you can start selling within minutes. You, your family, your friends, associates, even strangers, can start shopping immediately through your own Younique web site.

Perhaps even more excitingly, you get paid your commissions (20-30%) just three hours after every sale! Now that is FAST!

5) FREE

Free goodies with Younique

With Younique, you get your own FREE website that has no annual fees. It’s also the place you sell immediately, but also you can earn FREE makeup for yourself through your own party links! How cool is that?

Other ways to get FREE goodies? You can earn a lot of it by hitting “Fast Start”. If that weren’t enough, you’ll also earn FREE Y-cash on you Birthday each year too ($25.00 USD | $30.00 CAD | $33.00 AUD | $35.00 NZD | £20.00 GPB).

So that’s cause of celebration alright! Who doesn’t love FREE stuff?

6) FREEDOM

Freedom to run a Younique Biz your way
Like I said in number 3, in your Younique business, you have the freedom to run it how and where you want.

You have freedom to choose what works best for you to be your most authentic self. If you want to host in home parties, you can. If you want to do it “old-school catalog” way, you can do it that way too. If you want to become a Youtube vlogger or normal blogger, then go for it. If you want to attend events, you can. If Instagram is your channel of choice, you can choose to only market there. Or perhaps you’re a queen pinner then take your business and pin-it to Pinterest. You may be a party girl and host tea parties or lashes and lattes lunch breaks. Younique offers you much freedom to run things your way, each day!

PS: You do not have to have a Facebook business page or host parties on FB, I’ve never done either and I do pretty good with Younique. Do what suits YOU…not your upline.

7) FASHION

Younique is in Fashion
From the latest trends like 3D Fiber Lashes, or mineral pigment powders and creamy eye shadows to luxurious lip stains – you’ll always be on trend and in fashion with Younique makeup. They’re constantly adding new products to our lines. See how your Younique sisters are shining their Younique light with various looks created by presenters. Yep, this is most-definitely not your grandma’s makeup company!

8) FACEBOOK

Younique FacebookTo be honest, I’m not sure whether it’s a good thing or a bad thing, but you need to have a Facebook account to be a Younique presenter. For many of you who are already posting on Facebook, this is great news!!

You can actually use it to promote your business and make yourself some money while “playing” on there all day anyway. Get paid to play as they say! Promote items via your Facebook business page, or through an event. Or share your Younique life through your profile (Note: FB does have Ts&Cs to prevent you using your profile as a business though – so be careful, be creative!)

For those of you who may not like FB, you don’t actually have to use it for marketing. You can simply use it to log into your account and do your promoting how, when and where you like (I refer you to numbers 3 and 6 above!)

9) FAMILY

Younique Family
If you have a family yourself, then this business will afford you the ability to spend more time with them. You can help support them by earning extra money each month.

For those of us who don’t have a family (well mine is thousands of miles away), you can become a part of a Younique Family. Your team will become a sort of “family” to you, should you wish to connect to your Y-sisters. I have found it to be a supportive sisterhood and hopefully you will too!

10) FRIENDS

Younique Friends
Similarly to number 9, my tenth reason to join Younique is all about friends. If you have lots already, you can spend more time having fun with them. You can get together with them and have play with your presenters kit filled with products.

Some of them will love it and join your team (my first half-dozen recruits were my friends and my best seller has been a long-time friend). Some friends will be your most supportive customers. Theses are good friends.

You also will likely find you make new friends. I am making friends with many of my upline and downlines alike. Young and old alike – we friends are celebrating a similar mission as business owners, and are encouraging each other along our journeys. Also we help each other on days when we feel like chucking it in, and I’ll be honest with you, those days do happen. They don’t happen for me but when they do it’s good to have a supportive network to see you through!

CONVINCED TO JOIN YOUNIQUE?

Ready to become a Younique Presenter - #jointheAteamIf you’re ready to #jointheAteam now, then please do so. I would love to Sponsor your Younique business today.

If you are still unsure and have more questions, then feel free to reach out to me in the comments area below, or email me younique (at) theanewcomb.co.uk – at no obligation. I’ll see if I can help you any more.

There is also a wee blog of 5FAQs about Joining Younique which may help if you still have some questions. Or read the follow up More FAQs article…

Finally, you can also follow along with my weekly series called My Week in Younique where I tell you about my own experience as a Younique presenter and sponsor. A recent blog talks about my Younique journey (and its challenges) six months in and this is one of my more detailed (and best, if I do say so myself) – My Year in Younique. All of these blogs are done as transparently as possible. This is not a “get rich quick” business, and “Younique is not for everyone”, but it’s fabulous and fun if you’re determined to put in the work like I am! If you are I’d love to hear from you now!

My Week in Younique – April Starts

Welcome back to another, short instalment of My Week In Younique. Again there is not a ton to report, but I aim to keep those of you who are interested in joining Younique informed about my journey as a Presenter and Sponsor. I am now entering the sixth month of my Y-business.

Younique Enquiries

So, where to start,…I’ve had a few more enquiries this week as to the merits of joining Younique – which is fantastic. Love those! I’d much prefer that than having to go here, there, and everywhere – trying to extol the virtues of this fabulous opportunity. It’s better, in my experience, that people are searching and find me as a sponsor (or to shop for mineral based makeup off of me) because if they have, then they’re, arguably, more keen to try out Younique or to sign up as a presenter themselves.

I’m working on a blog about the reasons to join Younique but I suspect it will take me another week to write unless the creative starts to flow. There are a lot of solid reasons to #jointheateam at Younique – but as fabulous as it is, it’s not an easy busy. Ready to become a Younique Presenter - #jointheAteamIf you’re someone swayed but slow periods of sales or negativity seen on the web – you’ll be put off by it. Early on, I decided not to be put off my Younique path and I choose to brush off other people’s negative experiences and keep positive on my own. I seriously love it. Still.

Yes, I’d hoped to be higher up the rainbow ladder by now (Blue or even Green), but I am still 100% committed to making it up and I need others around me who share that goal in order to make it happen. This is very much a team business. And on that note…

First Sales for April,…Finally!

Just checked my Younique Products site to see how my company is doing. I try to do every day so I can congratulate the team. Well, I just noticed that newcomer Kelly, the English Lass, has knocked it out of the ball park for April sales already! While I had a small order go through last week, Kelly is the first of my team to score some sales and no only that she’s just sold about eight times my order!

Go Kelly - Off to a flying start in April

Thea Newcomb | Yellow Younique Presenter in the 1st month.That’s bittersweet for me. I will really need to pull out all the stops to compete with that!! She’s fast on her way to hitting Yellow status and Fast Start too. What I love most about her is her determination. She’s looking to take this business further than just a wee sideline. She’s in the process of setting up her own blog and some social media channels too.

Well done Kelly!!

Brainstorming About Germany

So, my (good) ex was staying with me for the Easter weekend, and we spent a lot of time talking about my Younique business. My ex, as it happens, has an incredible strategic business brain, an MBA and works for an airline – so he’s the perfect person to bounce ideas off of – even if it’s a subject matter he knows nothing about. He’s an ideas man and that’s always fun to be around.

Looking to sponsor Younique Presenters in Germany
Coincidentally, it was an added bonus that he calls Germany “home” now, and Younique is set to launch in Germany later this year (July)! So I have enlisted him to help me find some makeup-loving residents of Germany to #jointheateam! He’s just flown back to Berlin today and is now on the case! Meanwhile I have some other ideas of how to track down some beautiful bilingual gals from Germany and Mexico.

Watch this space…

That’s all I have time for it’s 23:59, and I should be sleeping! See you next time!
