Younique What It Is and What It’s Not…

makeupBecoming a Younique presenter and sponsor has been one of the best, but also most challenging, decisions I’ve ever made…

If you’re considering joining Younique, then let me tell you some of my own truths. These may not be everyone’s truths, but I suspect some of these are fairly universal, and not only for Youniques, but other direct sales companies.

Some of what follows will be over lap on my 10 Reasons to Join Younique and some will be newly realised awarenesses.

WHY YOUNIQUE?

Before you join any MLM, Younique or otherwise, you should ask yourself what your “why?” is?
If it’s just about making money fast, then you’ll likely simply end up quitting.

soyouvebeendumped.comFor me personally, I had been searching (for years), for something I could do from home (or anywhere in fact as I write these words, I’m on a flight between the US and the UK). I was specifically trying to find something I could promote through my long-running website, soyouvebeendumped.com (SYBD) and my various social media channels.

I had been looking for just the right product or service that would be relevant to a large portion of my SYBD community.

I had friends and associates who sold Aloe products through Forever Living, and others who did Herbal Life, but though they were “close”, they didn’t feel quite right…so I kept searching.

Last Autumn, before it launched in the UK,  I heard about Younique and that was it. I was sold! Breakups and makeup, to me, seemed to go well together. It was my thinking that women who go through a breakup may want to treat themselves to some products to make themselves feel beautiful, and some of them may even want to start their business running their own company (to take their mind off their breakup). Win/win.

So MY WHY was to find something that would be useful and relevant to women and that would utilise my Social Media skills. It wasn’t just about making a fast buck (or pound or whatever).

CHARACTER BUILDING

Looking for a quick and totally easy way to make some money? Post a few links on your social media channels and sit back and watch the commissions flow in? Then Younique’s not for you. Younique is a real challenge, well for most of us, I believe.

It’s what my dad would call “character building”.

It’s a constant challenge, but it’s the good kind of challenge. It’s one that will test and teach you every day in every way.

You will likely find that people around you won’t get your reasons for joining an MLM. Some may avoid you, some may even unfriend you (a few have me!), you may hear derogatory remarks too. But if you can continue on, regardless of the negativity, you will be stronger for it.

Personal development is a large aspect to any MLM, and Younique is no different. So use it to learn as much about yourself, your motivation and your determination, as possible. Work out early on what your “why” is, as mentioned above, because if you don’t really know it, you probably will just give up.

MOTIVATING

Some people will find the elite status presenters’ stories inspiring. Others will be put off (when not as successful as them) and simply give up.

Personally I challenge myself each month, and try to push myself to do better all the time. I also get motivated by my team. If they start doing better than me, (and they are this week!!), then it forces me to up the ante and do better.

Very rarely does my team beat me in sales (though it has happened) so it forces me to work smart and lead by example. This sisterhood motivates me!

FUN!

Younique is FUNYounique is FUN…this company keeps it FUN – it has to be said. Each month, it would seem there is something new, whether it’s a new product (or sometimes six), kudos, a new territory (Germany goes live this week and Mexico in October) or perhaps some other incentive to grow our business further.

Younique keeps keeps the business fresh, interesting and motivating. If you’re looking for a bit of fun in your life, then this could very well be it!

EMPOWERING

Looking for an opportunity to run your own business, set your own hours and days, working any place you like?

Fancy learning new skills like marketing, promotion, sales, networking, customer service, persistence and all kinds of personal development skills? If you wanted to but always thought you couldn’t do it, then this may be the business that will prove you wrong – but if you fully commit.

If you apply yourself, you’ll learn what hard work, creativity and determination can do for you.

Or you can be like a lot of other people and give up after three or six months stating “it’s too hard” or “there’s no money in it” or “my upline din’t help me” – or any other excuses you can come up with.

We all have the same products, the same sources for information (e.g. Younique itself, Youtube, the Facebook Presenters Only group, and various upline training teams) so it’s no ones fault if you don’t succeed.

ETHICAL

A lot gets said about Younique’s mission which you probably know is to “Uplift, Empower and Validate” – but it goes beyond that to the ingredients being used in the products, the eco-friendlieness of the packaging and the fact that a portion of each sale goes to its foundation which was set up to help abused women.

The Younique Foundation inspires hope in women who were sexually abused as children or adolescents by hosting them at a retreat, where they are uplifted by each other and learn skills that can help them find individual healing. We educate parents and empower them to protect their children from sexual abuse while leading a public dialogue to bring the epidemic of abuse to light.

Find out more over on the Younique website.

In summation, no Younique is not a horrible pyramid scheme or a scam…nor is it a “get rich quick” scheme.

It’s very fun but it’s also bloody hard work to make it a success. It takes tenacity, consistency and positive attitude to do anything with it. If you want to find out more – read through my blogs, phone me or email me. If you’re ready to join Younique by Thea, you can also do that here.

My Week in Younique – 3D Fiber Lashes+ & More

ANOTHER WEEK IN YOUNIQUE UPDATE

Wow it’s been a busy time with Younique so I’ve fallen a bit behind again…

So for today’s update – there are new July Kudos this month that look awesomeBuy new 3D Fiber Lashes+ from Younique by Thea, new members in my company, and of course the big news of the week (month or even year where Younique is concerned…) is that we launched our new 3D Fiber Lashes+.

EPIC NEWS FIRST

It’s been all go the past few weeks so I’ve not had time to do the My Week in Younique updates.Since July 1, 2015 it’s been all about the new mascara. I’ve already blogged quite a bit about the epic news and about how the mascara launched earlier this week. It was a crazy kind of cool and my first real, proper Younique product launch since joining last year.

JULY KUDOS

Get smitten with this Adorably Enamored Trio – this month’s kudos features two exclusive mineral pigments – Adorable and Enamored and our lovely liner/shader brush – while supplies last!
enamouredtrio
£ 25 GBP  / $32 USD / $39 CAD / $42 AUS / $45 NZD / $560 MEX

GREAT TIME TO JOIN

Right now, until we sell one million 3D Fiber Lashes, you can grab yourself a presenters kit with FREE shipping. Also until that million is sold you’re getting TWO sets of the lashes too. One to keep and one to sell or sell both…
So if you want the makeup, but have no interest in selling or recruiting, you don’t have to. Take the makeup and run.
Or become a presenter and just shop through your own link to remain active… To continue to be an active Younique presenter all you need to do is sell $125 every three months. That’s it. That equates to: £80 GBP / $170 AUD / $192 NZD / 1991 MEX / $162 CAD). In Younique we talk about things being done in mascara so that’s approximately five mascaras every ninety days.
The company is getting bigger all the time. Very proud of Kelly and Karen for recruiting Team new mates this month.

ALLO GERMANY

Younique  launches in Germany in just over one week and already we have had lots of interest from German lovelies hoping to get started as soon as we do. I’d especially love for fabulous, bi-lingual makeup lovers to #jointheAteam now.

UNTIL NEXT TIME…

That’s all I have time for but a new blog is on the way, hopefully this week about how running your Younique UK business may or may not effect your benefits if you’re claiming benefits like job seekers allowance etc. Will post as soon as I can!

Younique Now Selling NEW 3D Mascara: Fiber Lashes+

Buy New 3D Fiber Lashes+Yesterday around 8am here in the UK Younique launched its new formula, totally enhanced 3D Fiber Lashes+ mascara and makes history.

Younique’s flagship mascara has been totally revamped from the inside out! I’ve already blogged about the new 3D lashes+ which you can read here, but today’s post is really an update on how the launch of the new 3Ds went yesterday. It was very exciting!

Get Ready, Get Set Go 3D+Buy new 3D Fiber Lash Plus

I was so excited about the lash launch that I couldn’t sleep. Seriously, I was wide awake at 5am. THREE hours before NEW 3D mascara launch.

Surfing around on my laptop while still in bed, I took a glance at the Younique counter shortly before the 3D lashes went live. The figure was around 38,000. Those sales were for Younique presenters only.

Within minutes of launching – the 3D Fiber Lashes+ were flying out the door at a rate of a thousand every minute.

Watching the counter go up like that reminded me of watching the end of an eBay auction with loads of watchers. Ping. Ping. Ping.

A real dopamine hit. A total buzz!

At 8:17 AM - 59,000 mascaras were sold

I kept checking for the first hour or two – whilst simultaneously posting on my various social media channels like Twitter and my Google+ (and another G+ post). It was incredible to witness. I have honestly never seen such Lashtastic buying frenzy!

Smashing Younique Records

After the July 1 record of 23,110 sales in one day, Younique has had a backlog. I’ll be honest with you, we here in the UK have been mighty frustrated for not having received ours. We normally sell over 15,000 (or nearly 20,000 – I’ve heard different quotes) a day. So 23,110 was a good few more.

Sales After a Working Day

Around 5pm – after a whole day of sales here in the UK, the figures looked like this: 131,011.

5pm Counter of Younique Mascara Sales

If you subtract that initial 38,000 sets of mascaras, you see that after nine hours of selling these mascaras we’re now nearly at 100,000 sets.

Four times more than that their July 1st record-selling 3D mascara day!

But as I am watching this counter go crazy, it’s a mixed bag of emotions.

I am excited for the company and hoping for some sales myself but I can only imagine how selling as many as were sold in the last 24 hours will play out.

All I can say is that I pray they have the fulfilment better worked out for these deliveries or we presenters will have a Lash Mutiny on our hands!

I kept checking the counter out all day, and though it surely slowed, it kept going. Up and up. I did one final check this morning just after 8am – so 24 hours later and this is where it was.

130,000 3D Fiber Lashes+ sold in 24 hours.

We are still going to a million. We have some specials on now until we reach that. So if you #jointheAteam you get two sets of lashes and FREE shipping on your presenters kit. (That’s such an awesome deal, I wish I could sign up again).

Since the time I wrote this blog it’s now sitting at 170,932. That’s quite a few sets of lashes. Hope to get a few more of those sales myself. If you’re ready to try them pop on over to my Younique by Thea shop now!

Younique 3D Lashes+ to Break Mascara Sales Record

2 DAYS TO GO FOR ALL-NEW 3D FIBER LASHES+!

Only July 1, 2015 Younique announced its flagship best-seller 3D Fiber Lash mascara has been totally revamped – inside and out.

That day, they went on sale to Younique presenters only, and buy, we did in droves…That day we sold over 23,000 in just one day (23,110).

Now just two days away from the official launch date of these new 3D Fiber Lashes+ (July 15) my Y-sisters and I aim to break a global record of selling a million mascaras in just one day*.

My personal goal is to sell 300 sets in the month of July. Yes, I have a long way to go (290 or so), but you set your sights and you go for it. Right?

Younique to break mascara sales record July 15

“What the Plus”? How Lashes+ Are Better

You may be wondering what the difference is between our original 3D lash formula and the new 3D Lashes+. The answer? Almost everything from the ingredients, to the packaging, to where it is now made (in the USA!)

We’ve swapped the green tea leaves for Rayon, and they’re now enriched with our gorgeous Uplift Eye Serum to help nurture your lashes, and the packaging is now eco-friendly. They used to increase volume of lashes by up to 300% but now it’s closer to 400%.

Read my recent blog that outlines more of the differences between our original 3D fiber mascara and the new 3D Lashes+.

Also here’s a wee “trailer” of the new 3D Fiber Lashes+ for you to see them up close and personal.

Get ready 3D mascara lovers….From July 15, 2015 – you can buy your 3D Fiber Lashes+ here.

More than Mascara…

Shop Younique by TheaAs you may know we sell more than mascara,…we have amazing skin care products, lip glosses, stains and liners and a percentage of every purchase from a Younique presenter helps empower sexually abused women. 

*The downside of being such a successful company is that I predict we’ll achieve it and then the company will be hammered with orders – which may cause some delays. I hope I am wrong. 

 

Younique’s New 3D Fiber Lashes+

On July 15, 2015 – Younique launches its New 3D Fiber Lashes+. The Black status presenters already have them and have been sharing their love of the new 3D mascara’s results. Mine are already on order and with a bit of luck they’ll arrive in time for me to celebrate my birthday! If you’re in the UK you can place an order with me direct today (and save on some shipping fees!) Read on for more info on this newly-enhanced, revolutionary mascara!

What’s New in These 3D Fiber Lashes+?

So you may be wondering, what’s the difference between the original formula, best-selling, flagship Younique product and these new ones? Buy new 3D Fiber Lash Plus

With Fiber Lashes+, Younique’s enhanced everything inside and out. They’ve increased the appearance of greater lash volume from the originals’ 300% to 400% for a start.

The Original 3D Fiber Lashes were made from green tea leaves. The new 3D fibers are now made from Rayon.

Most excitingly for me, the 3D fibers are actually coated with our Uplift Eye Serum. This will add shine to and make the lashes more supple, and it will moisurtise them too. How cool is that?

Other Benefits to New 3D Fiber Lashes+

3D Fiber Lashes+ - Buy from #youniquebythea - July 15, 2015 on!

+ The Lashes+ bristles on the Transplanting Gel wand provide maximum coverage without clumping
+ The tubes now have a convenient display window to show when it’s time to reorder (see pic)
+ Ophthamologist approved
+ Hypoallergenic
+ Gluten free
+ Fragrance free
+ Dye free
+ Paraben free
+ Latex free
+ Sulfate free
+ PABA free
+ BPA free
+ Nano particle free
+ Vegan-friendly
+ Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+ are easily removed with eye makeup remover or our Shine makeup cloths.

All of these enhancements but with no increase in price on our original 3D Fiber Lash Mascaras:

COST: £23 GBP | $29 USD | $35 CAD | $38 AUD | $40 NZD | $505 MXN

For those who want eyelash extensions without all the fuss – these 3D Fiber Lashes+ are just for you!

No 3D Mascara Fakes!

Our 3D mascara is not fake eyelashes, or falsies, but fibers that go on like your normal mascara.

In the past they’ve been so popular that they’ve been counterfeited and can be found for people searching for Younique Mascara Amazon or Ebay – but those found on those sites are not the real Younique 3D Fiber Lashes!! So buyers beware.

I am pleased to report this should hopefully be minimised as our brand new Younique Fiber Lashes+ have two international patents-pending which should help squash the fakes circulating popular shopping sites.

Just say “no” to cheap 3D mascaras on Amazon or eBay etc!

Please, please, please – always buy the real Younique products from an official presenter/sponsor.

New 3D Fiber Lashes+ Are Made in the USA!

One final thing to add about the difference between 3D Fiber Lashes and the new 3D Fiber Lashes+ is that our new revolutionary mascara is “Made in the USA”. (Not China like the original 3D mascara was). It’s eco-friendly packaging as well. You get a cute black travel bag to hold them now! (See pic).

If you haven’t tried our 3D Fiber Lash mascara yet, or you have and loved it, then now is the time to try the new 3D Lashes+ – available from July 15, 2015. Believe your eyes!

If you’re in the UK, you can place your order with me now and I can save you some money on shipping costs. Reach out for more details and ways to pay – etc.

Get Thea to Green!

Please buy any Younique products from me this month and help me Get to Green! Thanks so much, lovely! xoxo

It's a Fabuluash Time to Join Younique

It’s a Fabuluash Time to Join Younique

IJoin Younique + Plus Youf you were to say to me a year ago I’d be running my own makeup business, I may have (rudely) laughed in your face. I’m not, as my family and friends will attest, a girlie girl or glamour puss. In fact, I am a bit of a plain Jane. I didn’t like the idea of direct sales, or know much about makeup, but man was joining Younique one of the best decisions I’ve made…

Coming into my ninth month as a Younique presenter and sponsor, I still love it as much as I did the day I joined. Maybe even more.

Why is it such a FAB time to Join Younique?

Sure, any time is the right time to join Younique, but right now the timing is positively exceptional…You may be asking “why now?”

First of all, they’re offering some nice incentives…If you join right now you’re going to receive:

  • an extra set of 3D lashes – our new 3D Fiber Lashes+ (out July 15 to the public)
  • a limited edition charm (which I totally want to add to my collection**!)
  • FREE shipping too!
  • Now you can get £202 worth of makeup for £69! For US peeps $256 for just $99.

How fantastic is that??

#JointheAteam - Younique By Thea

We Launch in Germany in Less than a Month!

Another reason it may be time to join Younique is that we’re launching in more new markets – first is Germany.

The German market is going to be an excellent one I think. I’ve already had enquiries from women in Germany hoping to #jointheAteam so hopefully that will happen on Aug 1 – or soon after.

We also can’t forget that Mexico is currently slated for October too. So by the end of 2015 that will be us in seven countries! Brilliant!

Epic News – 3D Fiber Lashes+

So I’m just off the Epic Younique webinar hosted by co-founder Melanie Huscroft. They’ve been building this webinar up for the past week or two. When 8pm rolled around, as technology would have it, Younique broke the Net. It was nearly an hour later before it got underway and could hear this revolutionary news.

NEW 3D Fiber Lashes+

Buy new 3D Fiber Lash PlusSo this epic news is that our flagship product – the 3D Fiber Lash mascaras have been enhanced to be 3D Fiber Lashes+.

They’re now coated with the Uplift Eye Serum (how novel is that?) which will enhance your own lashes – by coating them with vitamins and enzymes. Loving that idea.

They’ve also made changes to the transplanting gel, the fiber lashes themselves and the packaging too.

They’ve re-imagined the wand on the3D Fiber Lashes+. The applicator is now cone-shaped to give more of a precise consistent application process.

One thing I love the sound of is that there’s a window on the side to show how much contents will be left. Again how cool is that?

 …Made in the USA

Wouldn’t you know, I recently posted a blog about where Younique products are made – starting with our 3D lashes which are made in China.

The good news today is that now they are 100% “Made in the USA”. I know that will please many people out there. I know it pleases me!

Down with Counterfeit 3D Mascara

Also it pleases me to point out that there are two international patents pending which should squash some of the counterfeit knock offs floating about. (If you’re a regular reader of my blog you’ll have probably read my real vs fake 3D lashes post) The patents basically mean the mascara can not be copied legally. Hooray.

These 3D Fiber Lashes+ are not on sale until July 15. They’ll be the same price which is fantastic news to be sure!

Aiming High in July – Get Thea to Green

Get Thea to Green: Younique status

Well hello, July! I’ll be honest with you, I have not made it as high up the Younique ladder as I’d have hoped by now. Thought I’d hit Blue or even Green status by March, but in reality, it’s been a very slow-to-promote process. I feel like I peaked at Pink.

As it’s July, it’s time to aim high!

It feels almost impossible here on day one of July, but I’m going for Green! What’s that mean?

It means selling $10,000 worth of makeup in one month!

My lovely teams’ sales count toward that figure, and hopefully they will sell well this month…We’re all aiming high in July! It’s scary and exciting!

“Get Thea To Green”

Shop Younique by thea - Get Thea to GreenAs it’s my birthday soon, I thought I’d ask my dear family, friends and maybe some lovely blog readers to do something for me…well, for themselves and me! How can you help me?

Instead of asking for any presents, I just want people to shop through my Younique site (or via me direct if in the UK*)…To treat themselves, or someone special, to some Younique Products – makeup or skin care items.

No order will be too small – even a lip gloss or eye liner, what have you!

Every single sale will help!

FREE Makeup Anyone?

If anyone is interested in buying more than just a one off 3D Fiber Lash Mascara or Splurge Cream Eye Shadow (or whatever), then I can create a personal, unique shipping link in order to earn credit for half-priced or even FREE makeup. (Our y-cash is good for a year and the chart is below! Basically the more you spend the more credit you earn).

Younique Party Links

There has been confusion over this whole “Virtual Party” thing, in my experience. You have a few options. You can share your own personal link on your social media, by instant message or email, however you fancy!

OR you don’t have to share a thing simply shop through it yourself. Either way the more sales through your “party link” – the more likely you are to earn FREE naturally-based makeup (not just half priced makeup)!

Get Shopping

Buy new 3D Fiber Lash PlusSo please do some shopping on Younique by Thea and help ‘Get Thea to Green’ this month. I get a promotion, and you get yourself or someone you love, some new Younique goodies. Win/Win!

If you’re interested – you can find out where Younique products are made in a recent blog.

Epic Younique News Today!

Later tonight we’re on a webinar to learn about some “EPIC” Younique news. I’ll write again tonight (or tomorrow) with what that “game changing” info is all about. I honestly can’t even imagine what is going to be so “revolutionary” – but they are so good at teasing these things out.

All revealed as soon as…
