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+
So 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?
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!
Well I am back with another update. I’d let the weekly updates lapse a little but striving to get them back onto a more regular basis. Last time was a month update (oops).
In my last blog post I talked a little about our expansion into Mexico – following a webinar that I was on the line for this week.
Younique Has “Epic” News
So it appears we have some majorly big news coming this week – July 1st. I have no idea what it is. I can’t even come up any with any possible theories of what it might be. I’m completely stumped…
What could be “Game-changing. Revolutionary. Ground-breaking”? I do love how good Younique is when teasing their news. They always seem to be hatching some interesting plans.
I hope it lives up to the hype! The email says we’ll not be disappointed and that Younique co-founder Melanie Huscroft will spare no details on the webinar in four days. Can’t wait to see what she’s got to reveal! I will let you know after the webinar.
Younique launches in Mexico October 1, 2015. From that webinar, it sounds like a very exciting country to expand to – given their mobile proliferation and love of makeup there! Would love some lovely Mexicans to #jointheAteam! Maybe I should use this launch an excuse to head south of the border next time I am in California? A little sunbathing, recruiting excursion?
While we’re we are on the subject of Younique expansion into other markets, just a wee reminder, we are no longer launching in Germany in July – but rather August 1. I can’t wait as I have had interest from Germany for women to join Younique but they now have to wait one more month!
Get Thea to Green
Last month I had a cracker amount of sales. Best of the year to date. This month, June, has been a bit too quiet for my liking – to be honest.
I did sell out of the 3D mascaras, as I say, but there were few sales placed on my Younique by Thea website. I am determined to promote higher in July. Green if possible. So I plan to implement my Get Thea to Green campaign. It’s my birthday, you see, in July, and I’ve decided to say to family/friends “don’t buy anything for me – but shop for yourself or someone special” through my website.
This goes for anyone looking to buy 3D fiber lash mascaras, lip stains, eye shadows or other Younique products!
Buy in July! Win/win. They get wonderful naturally-based makeup and products, and I hopefully sell 10,000 USD (Over #£6,300) in order to promote. That said #theAteam needs to sell too (and qualify) in order for me to progress up to Green. Frankly it’s a lofty goal but I am going for it!
Pay for Younique with Paypal!
This morning I woke up to news that makes me so happy. As I am someone who runs their Younique business from both the US and the UK – I use different credit cards to purchase products. For some reason, I’ve had issues using my Californian card and details. I had to resort to sending a friend in Ohio money via Paypal so she could use her card. It was very frustrating, so much so, I actually complained and asked support to pass on my suggestion to the top man Derek, and allow PayPal payments (dated May 18)!
Anyway, around a month later, the news arrives, that we now can! Am not saying it was due to my suggestions – but regardless, I am over the moon! I look forward to trying it later to buy some new 3D Fiber Lashes because I am sold out, again!
I’ve been building websites (some of them ecommerce) for TWENTY YEARS now, so I felt confident in my suggestion to him. I’d like to give some other pointers but that’s perhaps best saved for another day and time 😉
My Upline Says “Goodbye” to Younique
On a not too terribly surprising note, my upline has decided to leave Younique. She, like many started out full of fire, shooting for Black and then it slowly petered out. She’s got other things to focus on, a book, and some other MLM type things (I think?) but like several of my own team – she’s decided it’s not for her. This business is not for everyone. I totally get it.
We in the UK are just about eight months down the line, and I still love Younique, the products and the business, and am still 100% committed – but like everything in life, it’s all “subject to change”.
I’ve seen the pictures (screenshots from a top presenter) but can’t wait to order them myself so I can see them up close!
Plus there are a bunch of new bundles that look utterly awesome! Check out the new names: Kid in a Candy Store, Pucker Up, About Face, Show Stopper, All Eyes on You and Radiant Beauty! They all look great, but I’m probably going to grab the Kid in a Candy Store for the new products, and because I lost my gorgeous lip stain (it may have been left in California last month, oops). Still doesn’t it look great! The new bags look darling!
Last October we printed an incorrect price in the catalog for the Moodstruck Minerals Pigment Powders Set of 4. Since it was our mistake, we chose to honor that lower price until the March catalog was printed with the corrected price ($45 USD, $54 CAD, $58 AUD, £35 GBP, $62 NZD). We want to remind you that there is about one week remaining for this lower price, as the correct price will go into effect March 1, 2015.
Definitely picking up a set of these this week before the price goes up! I am having trouble deciding though as per my post on Google+. There are 32 eye shadows and I only have five so I really need to work out what I should get next. Open to suggestions if you have any! Post there or here in the comments!
New Enquiries Via My Site
I’ve had some enquiries through the blog to join #theateam – which makes me beyond-pleased! Good to know someone is reading these words and has reached out as a result!
One however reached out, stated she was signing up with someone else and asked loads of questions to me (which I answered). So basically I did all the recruitment for someone else’s benefit! Oh well…I’ve written a blog to answer some 5 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS of Younique) Part one – as a response to that. More FAQs will follow.
So what am I looking for? Well it’s my intention to find some fabulous, makeup-loving, ambitious sellers who want to run their own business, play with makeup, and have a second pay check each month. Heck, better still if they want to make a career out of it (like me)! 🙂
Looking for people in North America, the UK, Australia and New Zealand. So please pass it on!
Another enquiry last week came from someone already selling the Fake 3D Fiber Lashes though. I cringed as so many un-suspecting women were registering their interest to snap them up – knowing full well they’re likely to be dodgy.
Really this just break my heart – people flogging counterfeit products, especially when those of us are trying to make a living out of selling the real deal.
Ladies, it may look the same, come in the same style case, even contain the same branding and bar code, but it’s not Real 3D Fiber Lash mascara unless you get it directly from Younique, OK? (Here’s a recent post about smelly transplanting gel – PS: if yours smells, it’s fake!)
If you’re after some cheap 3D lashes, please just beware of who you buy from, you don’t know what you’re putting on/near your eyes, OK? I tend to have some on hand and can send in the UK for reduced shipping. I’d rather you bought the real thing from me (or anyone at Younique) than be duped by a low cost knock off!
So please reach out. Plus, not only that, you’ll only be entitled to a money-back guarantee if you buy from source!
My newest recruit Sammie, based in Lanarkshire in Scotland, has already qualified as White and is earning the most on my team this month, second only to me! She’s fired up and running a few businesses simultaneously. This girl’s going places! She’s a rock star. I am delighted to have her aboard! The next teamie – also in Lanarkshire to be rocking it is Karen. Karen’s like my very own 3D Whisperer! She’s so good she doesn’t even know it! That’s how we often are I guess…never knowing our true worth. I will just have to keep reminding her.
Time to Shop Younique!
As for me, I need to go and do some shopping for myself! That’s in a way the downside of running your own Younique business, you end up being your best customer if you’re not careful. I genuinely want all the products but for now I’ll start with the above mentioned Moodstruck Pigments set and also I’m gonna have to break down and buy the Love it Bundle all for that cute Pink Glam Bag!
Another week has come and gone – and here we are, in February, now. That means I’ve done three, full months as an Independent Younique Presenter & Sponsor – here in Scotland. Of course a third of that time was in California too.
It’s been an amazing journey so far. Definitely highs and lows – just like life as a whole.
Younique’s Big Reveal
The other day we had our big reveal of — six new products and two new territories.
I blogged about the reveal within an hour or so of it taking place – so you can read the full blog hereif you’d like, but essentially the new products are:
Incidentally, I’d never even used a Lip Stain before November, but now I have, and I certainly was a convert.
Not only that, but I was expecting one colour, but it turns out we’re having seven new colours. Incredible. I want them all!
What I Love About Younique
I didn’t know what to expect when I joined Younique. I had not even tried the products yet, I’d only watched some videos and read some articles and reviews. I am completely new to this whole Direct Sales thing, and never saw myself as much of a “sales person” but, I think what I love is that it’s fun, the products tend to sell themselves, and I can make money while I sleep.
I seriously dig that!
Also the flexibility with Younique is incredible! You can work as little or as much as you want. It’s up to you. You can focus your efforts on Blogging (like me), Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Linkedin, Youtube, or Google+. – or take it offline and promote Younique products through your book club, office, church or on the school run!
Do whatever works for you!
One of my team mates up north is doing it “old school” via catalogs. That works too. What other business has this much flexibility?
Plus I love getting these emails – morning noon or night!
and even more so the ones that come three hours after this one…
to say I’ve been paid! How cool is that – no waiting to get your money!! I’m looking forward to filling up my gas tank tomorrow using my commissions from Younique!
In Other News This Week…
Have sold a few more 3D Fiber Lash Mascaras (both in person and through my website). Two have been reserved and that means I have just a handful left. It will soon be time to put through another bulk order as I do sell to people here in the UK for £23 direct off of me and if they’re elsewhere in the UK I’ll send them for £25 (which usually arrives the next day). I won’t always be able to do that but I’ll do it for the next month or so if you need some 3D lashes fast – get in touch soon!
Speaking of them…I have also had more comments on my biggest blog here to date – which talks about Real Fiber Lashes vs the Fake 3D Mascaras. My advice is buy through a Younique presenter to know you’re getting the real deal.
