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 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!
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 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.
This whole blog is filled with Younique journey. Though I don’t have as much time or inclination to really work Younique as a business – three and a half years on I still love being a Younique presenter which must be saying something. It’s not for everyone, to be sure, but it still is for me!

Yay for Younique December Kudos
Have you purchased the December Kudos from Younique? I have. Last weekend. And oh my I am eagerly awaiting its arrival, but for some reason the DHL site is not showing up. It should have been here by today but maybe tomorrow and honestly, I can’t wait!
Younique Sales & Sponsoring
I have finally had a surge in Younique sales, thank goodness. It had grown rather quiet there but it’s sure picked up this month. Have had orders placed on my website from Australia and Germany too. I’ve had some recent orders locally for friends as well. So delighted that business has picked up again. On the downside the numbers on my team have been dwindling….my own recruits and also those who were sponsored by my recruits.
I’ve always said Younique is not for everyone but it always is a bummer when you lose your recruits for whatever reason. It’s a real drag when the ones who have such a natural gift leave your team. Also a bummer when recruits go to other Direct Sales companies without a word…but of course that is their prerogative, and I wish all my former Youniques the best. I am just sorry to see them go.
To end on happy note, I have had some lapsed Younique recruits resurrect their accounts and that pleases me beyond belief.
Not been getting much time to update this blog of late but I’m still here and I am still Younique. Want to know more about it? Feel free to reach out to me on the details found on my site. Want to join my team?
You have a Younique Christmas, lovelies.

This month is an exciting time for cosmetic lovers who have been eagerly awaiting the launch of the 17 New Younique products!
Now not all of them are out so far, some will be coming over the next few weeks and months.
September Kudos, Catalog and Country
As it’s now September 2016, Younique is launching a brand new catalog and customer Kudos.
These product launches, new brochures and Kudos do keep things interesting for us Younique presenters.
Almost two years in on my Younique journey now and I still love it as much as I did.
But enough about me, let’s talk about these new products and their benefits.
Royalty Instant Lifting Serum
Younique Royalty Instantly Lifting Serum has has a facelift of its own. New packaging and they’ve rebranded it as an all over face and neck item, no longer just the eyes. This little beauty is our most expensive product but a little goes a very long way.
Benefits:. Uplifting Serum it reduces the appearance of wrinkles. It’s among the most versatile of the Younique products – you can put on your face, neck, heels or finger nails (cuticles). It’s a bit of a Wonder.
PS If you’re buying this month, as part of the September Kudos, you can earn Free Ycash credit which lasts for a year.
Also there is a new detoxing face mask which looks amazing. That’s one that truly interests me Have not used one for a while but will use this one. My Younique Royalty Detoxifying Mask will be here tomorrow, and I can’t wait to give it a whirl. I’ll write about it soon.
Rejuvenate and reveal the natural beauty of your skin!
Made from bamboo charcoal, this mask absorbs toxins and impurities while reintroducing oxygen to your skin with a foaming, tingling sensation.
The gentle exfoliating properties remove dead skin cells, and tree oils and vitamins help nourish and condition skin.
Since day one a fave line of Younique products has been the eye and lip liners so was pleased to see the launch of many more shades.
Benefits: Water proof, Good for outlining and all over lips coverage too.
New catalog – the new Younique catalogue can be found here: UK | US |
Here is the schedule of product releases.
As I say I can’t wait for my box to arrive tomorrow – featuring the Mask, the Serum, the new Happy Splurge Cream Eye Shadow and the Night Cream too! More about all that soon!
Last night I uploaded a short video to Facebook and to Youtube (see below) about this month’s customer kudos from Younique. The bundle is called Defend Innocence and is in support of protecting children from sexual abuse. This is a cause that is dear to me and so I happily do support it.
You can support the Defend Innocence cause by visiting the DI site and taking action or you can do so by buying this month’s bundle from my Younique by Thea shop. (Please attach your order to the latest party).
Whether you want to support the Defend Innocence cause or simply want some lovely new products that aren’t even released yet (plus that FREE bracelet) – you can grab it for this month only (while supplies last).
New Younique Products – Sept 2016
So very delighted that we are bringing out a bunch of new products next month. As there are quite a few I thought I’d break them down and just cover a few today and more soon.
It’s always so exciting when Younique has new kudos, new products, new collections, and new catalogues too. It makes being a Younique presenter (and sponsor) so very interesting!
Instant Lifting Serum
Notice the appearance of firmer skin with the creamy Younique Royalty Instant Lifting Serum. Vitamins A and C help nourish the skin, while vitamin B3 helps protect against external stressor.
A special formula includes bamboo charcoal to help soak up environmental impurities and help oxygenate the skin. You’ll feel it start to foam and bubble as soon as it hits your moistened skin!
Time Correcting Night Cream
One I’m most excited about is this one…(Maybe it’s my age that makes it so but anyway!)
Get some overnight nourishment with this velvety cream. It helps improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles Smooth on a more youthful appearance with the Younique Royalty Time Correcting Night Cream. A vitamin A derivative helps improve skin’s hydration while whey protein helps improve the appearance of skin’s firmness.
Well good news, I think…Seems we’re finally getting the Touch Liquid Mineral Foundation back in stock at last starting today! (You can see how well it worked in this quick shot of my mascot – my 80-something-year old dad (aka Younique dad)!)
So for those of you who’ve been searching and searching for the popular foundation that went Viral all those months ago, then this post is just for you. Soon you’ll find ALL shades of the Touch Foundation back in stock. A few shades are in stock as of today (4th April). To see which ones are available to buy right now, check out the latest image from corporate:
If you want more than just the Touch Foundation, you can actually order it in the Stroke of Beauty Collection! It’s a pricey collection, yes, but boy has it it got some of our absolute best products in there!!!
Other than that, there’s not too much else to report right now.
Some of the members in the company are totally rocking their business – some are doing some daily challenges.
My company is now five levels deep – which is super exciting…but really that’s about all that’s been exciting for me.
I’ve not had much time to concentrate on Younique as my “real job” is getting in the way. I’ve been traveling all over Scotland to deliver training to businesses (and some students too – at 4 Scottish Universities!) – so life is truly getting in the way of the makeup. But that’s the beauty of running your own Younique business – you can work it around your own life and schedule.
Browse for Brows
Before I go, here’s something that may interest you…Well, if you like to spend energy on your brows at all! This month’s customer kudos will be just for you! It’s a cute brow collection. I am not that fussed with the whole brow thing, to be honest with you, but even I would enjoy some of the goodies in this kit! The brush, the pigment the tweezers in particular!
Hope this post about the foundation back in stock soon will be music to your makeup-loving ears. I know it’s been a challenging wait – not just for you our lovely customers but also for my fellow Younique presenters. I’ve even had a few sort of give up on Younique – which was understandable.
I do hope that from now on we’ll not go out of stock. We’ll see…
Hello March 1st, today is a perfect day to join Younique. Why now? Well because today Younique launch their new products, new collections, new catalogs, new kudos and unveil a new territory too. Spain.
Need I say more?
Yes? Well, ok then…read on!
Recently I wrote a post about the various new Younique products 2016. It’s exciting every time they announce them, and even more when we actually launch them. I’ve been hitting “refresh” all morning to see the new goodies.
Finally an hour or so later than billed, the new products are now LIVE on the website and I myself will be picking up a collection of the new products today. All the new Younique collections are here.
So here are a few direct links to jump straight to some of the New Younique Products out today
Lip Bon Bons – Buy one or the completeset of all 5Vanilla Milkshake (nude/white), Red Velvet Cake (Reddish burgundy), Cherry Cobbler (Not Available for a few weeks – Darker Red), Chocolate Truffle (Lighter Red) and Raspberry Cheesecake (Pinky Purple)
Is your fave on the list? Many of mine are, but many are not. I could live without the brow products but I know people who swear by them. I guess it’s a case of to-each-their-own eh?
It’s high time I updated this list of Thea’s Faves because we’ve launched more since then. To be fair I did cover many of my personal choices in at Christmas in my 12 Days of Younique(Day 12 had a recap of the others).
Please note: If you’ve been trying to log in today to shop, it’s frankly been sketchy, at best. The Younique site has been falling over backwards with the amount of traffic that’s been hitting it today. It’s never happened like this in any of the previous product launches, since I started, but hopefully by night time here in the UK it will be working smoothing and we can all place our orders. I for one can’t wait!
Happy Valentine’s Day, lovelies. Well, by the time you read this it may have come and gone for another year, as a guess, but wanted to say it just the same. For this My Week in Younique update, we’ll talk a bit about what’s been happening since the last update – like the new team mate Tabitha, how my new “Welcome Back Kit” arrived (and so I did a video for its unboxing), the February kudos and info on the next Younique incentive trip and a few links to blog posts about joining younique, sponsors, and frequently asked questions that you may not have seen this past week or so, too!
My Welcome Back Kit
Last month, Younique offered a sweet little incentive to welcome back lapsed presenters and they called it the Welcome Back Kit. I must admit I was a bit envious when I saw it – mostly for the bag but a few other things in it too…So imagine my joy when I learned that we were going to be able to buy it ourselves from February 1. Buy, I did. I couldn’t resist, and I even made a little video unboxing it, or rather just after I unboxed it.
Speaking of Welcomes…
Welcome to Tabitha – she is the newest recruit – and she hails from Wisconsin.
To be honest with you I’d have hoped for something a bit more, ahem, romantic for February Kudos (last year was great) but this year it’s merely “Free shipping” over a certain amount. Basically if you buy some lashes and just about anything else you get Free shipping so from that standpoint it’s pretty decent…but like I say I’d have hoped they’d have thought a bit more out of the box for the Valentine Kudos…Maybe a pink lip stick or stain with a liner. Something….
I think something a bit more cute and creative would have helped me reach my goal of 10,000 PRS which I am inching my way toward (and had hoped I’d reach this month). But hey ho, we got FREE SHIPPING. Better luck with March’s Kudos….or hopefully some new products.
I’ve heard there will be new Younique Products for March 2016 but have yet to see an official update on that. I await that news with baited breath. It’s always so very exciting when we launch new products, collections, kudos all at once! If it does happen in March – I will receive that new 10k charm – mark my words.
So anyway it’s a great time to join Younique. If you’re looking for a Younique sponsor then this, one of my latest posts,“How to Find a Younique Sponsor” may be helpful to you. That’s of course if you’re not interested in joining my team right now…or even if you are it’s some “food for thought”. I also just blogged another Younique FAQs post so if you have some questions before joining then why not have a look at them?
Younique has announced another incentive trip – this time to Mexico. I am not a huge fan of the idea of cruises to be honest with you (would rather a resort trip) but I have to say I kind of like the idea of this one so I am gonna go for it.
If I can earn it maybe I’ll take Younique Dadalong. Don’t old folks love cruises?
That’s about all for another update of My Week in Younique. If there’s anything I can do to help you…please feel free to reach out. Details are up in the header here.
Do you fancy picking up a FREE brand new Liquid Eye Liner? You can’t even buy these babies yet, but you can get one if you buy a set of 3 Splurge Cream Eye Shadows in this month’s December Kudos.
Frankly this special offer is so good that I picked it up twice myself already (one for the US and one for the UK!!)
Besides as it’s so close to Christmas, I reckoned that I could give the Splurges away as gifts for family and friends. Well it makes perfect sense since Elegant (pictured top left) is just about my fave Younique product.
These Splurge Cream Eye Shadows are amazing and there are colours to suit all shades of peepers! I recommend the Elegant which is a shimmery beige and will look good on any eye lids! As my friend Heather says “It’s idiot proof – you just can’t put this stuff on wrong.” And you know what? She’s right! It is…But I also recommend Dainty.
Shop My December Kudos Party
You can pick up this amazing December Kudos here right now. Or if you’re getting a few of them, then I can create a party link just for you so you can potentially earn half-priced or even FREE makeup!
Welcome back to another instalment of My Week in Younique where this week I talk about my team’s achievements, how to get the 3D Fiber Lashes+ just in time for the holidays, the December Kudos (which is awesome by the way!) and my biggest news of all is that Black Friday made me BLUE status (Finally)!!!
Big High Five to Helen
Once again, my sole Aussie recruit, Helen, has kicked-ass. I’ve just noticed that two presenters signed up on my mother’s birthday and Helen was one. That has to be a great omen! Helen (pictured here with wee Amy) smashed sales in November, hitting Yellow status and outselling more than the next top selling presenter by more than double.
For that reason I’d really like to help her build her team up and reach the Fast Start promotion.
So for the next few enquiries I get here, I’ll have them sign up under Helen. They’ll still be a part of my team (entitled to any FREE Blogging or Social Media coaching) but they’ll signed up under Helen as their sponsor! Win/win as this gal’s going places!!
The trick I’m learning with Younique is to help your recruits build their teams. We are nothing without our teams. So it’s not just about having Younique recruits, it’s about formulating a team.
Personally speaking I’ve had lots of recruits in the first year, over 20, but 50% of whom haven’t done a thing…
Also worth mentioning is our next team presenter to promote up to Yellow since Helen was Louise. Well done girl!!
Also a big shout out to my fellow Cali Gals – Tina and Teri who are inching their way toward the Yellow promotion too! They may even make it this month collecting their pay-bump, up to 25%, just in time for Christmas.
More New Younique Product News: Buy the December Kudos!
So one of the most exciting things to happen this week is the announcement of the new December Kudos. Not only is it my fave product the Splurge Cream Eye Shadows but if you buy a set of three (and as luck would have it there are three new colours this month) – you get a FREE, brand new product – the Moodstruck Precision Liquid Eye Liner…How amazing is that? Of course I had to buy mine last night as I always aspire to have every Younique product in stock. (Any excuse right?)
3D Fiber Lashes+: One Set Left!
I currently am down to my last set of 3D Fiber Lashes in stock. Sold one this afternoon to a woman in Glasgow who phoned up last night needing a set for a present for her sister-in-law. We met, she paid me her £23 and received her 3D lashes and a FREE greeting card too.
Though I say I am down to my last set, there are five more sets (plus one from the Black Friday deal) that have been dispatched so do hope they arrive tomorrow or Saturday.
If you’re anywhere in the UK, for the next week, I can save you some money on shipping and you’ll receive them quicker but after next weekend I’ll be off for the holidays so act fast! To be fair if you needed some 3D lashes plus over the festive period I’m sure I’ll still sort you out. So yes, the choice is up to you whether you wish to buy direct from me (to save time and money) or order them online 24/7.
Younique Black Friday Made Me Blue
Finally, as many will know, I have been a Younique presenter since the company launched in the UK on November 1, 2014. I had not tried the products, just took a chance on the £69 kit start up cost and hoped for the best.
Well, as a social media trainer, Younique was a good fit for me. I already was on every channel there is (just about) and I know the basics of SEO as well.
So off I went and quickly qualified as White status, then Yellow, hit the “Fast Start” bonus and Pink…where I stalled for a year.
Younique is a fun of course, but often a very frustrating business. It’s definitely not for anyone who is just hoping to make a fast buck (or pound or euro). If I was only in it for the money I’d have quit nine months ago. It’s also not for anyone who is easily put off by other people’s negativity (family, friends, Younique haters etc). If you’re someone who isn’t of strong mind you’ll probably give up.
But thankfully this week – thirteen months of tenacity paid off and I finally reached Blue Status with Younique! I’ve had a lot of people asking me what that actually means. Well for one it means I’m halfway up the Younique ladder (or so). Four more levels to go – Green, Orange, Purple and Black.
It also means I’ll make 4% on my company sales (the downline below me). Looking forward to that first Blue payment soon!
I will be honest with you – I was delighted to reach blue at 11:57pm Sunday night. It happened as I was on my weekly training call with my team – e.g. Kelly. She got to witness first hand as I almost started to cry with excitement, relief and a few other emotions. Though I have to be honest you, I’m proud of hitting Blue with its 4000 sales but right around now Green is looking impossible. Do hope it doesn’t take another thirteen months, like it did to reach blue status, to promote to the next level – GREEN!!
Only time will tell…
Younique by Thea – Gift Vouchers!
Don’t forget I’m now selling Younique by Thea Gift Vouchers in the UK. You buy them – and the recipient shops through me directly and I send them to the desired address! Easy peasy! Perfect for anyone who needs a last minute gift idea for the makeup lover in their life!
My Week in Younique this week covers a bit about Convention. New Products. New Shipments. New top sales people too…
Well there’s always something exciting going on with Younique. This past week was Younique Convention in Chicago (which was covered in the Chicago Tribune), and though I was stateside at the time, it was for a high school reunion, so the dates were too much to work out. So I had to follow updates and announcements on “Social” – like the other non-attendees.
What was announced recently were a bunch of new products that look terribly exciting – coming in September!
I am personally very excited by the Touch Mineral Liquid Foundation as I tend to really like liquid foundations. The Moodstruck Precision Brow Gel and Brow Liner is also looking pretty interesting.
The Moodstruck Addiction Shadow Palette looks like it has some beautiful eye shadow shades in there, and don’t get me started on the lipsticks! We have a lot to choose from!
What’s great is that when Younique tends to launch new products, it often has a collection to get them all in it – so that should be announced this week (along with other new sets too).
Speaking of new products and lipsticks – my first ever Younique lipstick just arrived. It’s the “Exclusive Opulence Lipstick in Stuck Up”. It looks a bit browner or blander than I’d normally wear – but sometimes pictures don’t tell the whole story. I actually like it on! (Always keep an open mind).
Really excited to have now received my Younique necklace (as pictured) I’d had it sent to California some months back. You could get the necklace by buying any collection. Since I only wanted the necklace, I shared the products with my friend Kim in Ohio, and kept the necklace for myself!
Just noticed today that Kelly has now taken over as top sales person on #theateam. Also rising in the ranks is newcomer Lucy. Just need three or four more of these ladies and I’d be able to promote up the ladder too!
For every Lucy or Kelly though, there are about eight to ten who either do it just for a wee bit of fun, or part time, or who drop off completely. As I say often, this doesn’t tend to be an easy business.
For some it’s harder than others. I have no trouble getting sales through my site – but it doesn’t tend to be enough to promote me to Green or even Blue! Slowly slowly though. I’m in Younique for the long haul because it’s fun and I enjoy it. Just need to find recruits who feel the same way. That’s the key. You can’t get anywhere in Younique without your team! Want to #jointheAteam? I’d welcome you!
That is it for another ‘My Week in Younique’ where I try to give a bit of insight as to what it’s really like to be a Younique Presenter and Sponsor. Of course everyone’s experience is different but I’m just hear to share mine with you. That’s one thing I love about Younique is that we’re all carving our own path! Is it time for you to carve yours?
