New Younique Products Announcement 2015

Well it’s been a long time brewing, but Younique has finally announced the new products and territories for 2015. I do have to say, they did a pretty great job at building the excitement through social media…It has had us all guessing for weeks about what these big announcements would be…Here’s the official video that launched an hour ago!

6 New Younique Products

There were a few things I’d predicted, and a few I had no clue about. For instance, I had no idea there would be SIX NEW PRODUCTS. So very cool!! Here they all are!

6 new Younique Products - Younique By Thea

First off, I have to say I wasn’t too surprised to see that the November perk – the gorgeous Lip Stain was a new product. What did surprise me, however, was the fact there are seven colours available (as a whole set!). I can’t tell you how much I want the set…I’ll get it someday soon!

Summer Glow Time!

I like the idea of the Beachfront Bronzer! I mean who doesn’t want to look a bit more “tan” year round? (…Heck anything beach sounds good to me right now – it’s so baltic here in Glasgow that my Californian fingers are frozen as I try to type this!) But I digress…

Buy Splurge Cream Eye Shadow - Younique by TheaSo The Splurge Cream Eye Shadow sounds pretty good too. I don’t think I’ve ever used creamy eye shadow before – so will look forward to giving it a whirl, and using the new Cream Brush too.

UPDATE: The Splurge Cream Eye Shadow is now among my faves – of all our products! It feels so strange when you put the brush into the wee pot – almost sponge-like. It goes on so smooth and shimmery – I defy you not to love this!

The Shine Eye Makeup Remover seems like the perfect accoutrement to the ever-so-popular 3D Fiber Lash Mascaras, our fabulous Moodstruck Precision Eye Liners and of course the Moodstruck Mineral Pigments too!

There are also the Blending Buds – which will be readily available from March too.

UPDATE So all these products are on sale now.

Younique Mexico & Germany

Incidentally – two, new regions were also announced for later on in 2015 – Mexico (product sales to Mexico begin May 5 followed by full market launch there Q4) and also into Germany (Q3). It’s all very exciting! I’m already trying to recruit Youniques in both those regions now…so if you’re interested, please find out more on how to #jointheAteam here.

If you’re interested in learning more about some of our products, then please check out yesterday’s blog discussing my Top Younique Products.

Younique Collections

We also have six new collections. The Younique bundles are a fantastic value for money and a way to get lots of different products to try plus a super cute bag as well!Kid in a Candy Store - Younique Collection
I recently chose the Kid in the Candy Store collection (pictured) because it contains all of the new Younique products mentioned above! I highly recommend it – especially if you’re interested in the Bronzer, Lip Stain and Cream Eye Shadow (all of which are fab!)

Thea’s Top Younique Products

Welcome to #youniquebythea — am now three months down the line with Younique, and I thought to mark the anniversary, I’d do a post on my favourite Younique products. The following cosmetics are the ones I use on a daily basis.

I start by using the Illuminate Cleansers in the shower (yes really). I’ve not used a cleanser for years. I tried Clinique last year when I was noticing some reddish spots near my mouth, and it did me no good whatsoever (forked out a lot on that makeup at Heathrow – more fool me!) I use the Illuminate Clean which is for normal/dry skin. (You can get Illuminate Clear if you have Oily Skin).

When I get out of the shower, I sit down and begin the process of putting my “face on”. The first step here is putting on the Divine Daily Moitsurizer.. It’s just lovely going on. My skin welcomes the hydration. (I am probably guilty of not drinking enough water…something I need to remedy in 2015!!)

Its new formulation has fewer preservatives and comes in an airless pump. 50 ml.

Divine Daily Moisturizer

I had a video here but either I or someone else deleted. The product is long gone now. Sadly.

Glorious Primer

Buy Glorious Primer Today - The next step alternates between the Glorious Primer and the Uplift Eye Serum.

Generally it’s Glorious, so we will go with that. I can’t say that I ever used a “primer” before – but now that I have – I can’t see ever going back. It seriously goes on like a silk coating on my skin. It just evens out the skin and gets it ready for the next layer. Definitely a fave Younique product of mine!

Info via the Younique site:

Glorious creates a flawless canvas as it evens out the skin’s texture, and primes and prepares the skin for premium application of mineral makeup. The resulting appearance is porcelain-perfect, velvety-soft skin with incredible long-wearing, sweat-resistant coverage of mineral makeup that lasts all day. Ingredients are naturally based, free of parabens, oils, synthetic fragrances, and cheap fillers. Suitable for all skin types.

It truly is a beautiful product.

Uplift Eye Serum

After the Glorious Primer, it’s time for some help reducing my wrinkles around the eyes. The Uplift Eye Serum, not unlike the Glorious, goes on in a silky-smooth fashion. They eye serum is long gone.

Moodstruck Mineral Pigment Powders

Then I start on the eyes – the lids. I use a variety of the Moodstruck Minerals colors on my lids. I have five of the thirty-two.

They are gone now too.

You can mix them with the Refreshed Rose Water (also gone now so use tap water) to make up liquid liners, and shadows, as well. I do that – ever since I received my Rose Water recently!

UPDATE: I did a blog post that highlights all the things you can do to Get More from Your Moodstruck Mineral Pigments (like wear them on eyes, lips, in your hair and on your fingernails!)

Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lash Mascara

fave3dsNaturally, most days I do tend to apply our flag ship product, the best-selling 3D Mascara. Some days I apply it with a base coat of general mascara, and other days, I just apply the transplanting gel, the lashes and then the gel again.

It depends on my mood, my time, and the look I am going after.

Less is more for my normal day time routine. More layers, I mean business!

There are all kinds of great videos and blogs – by way of tutorials for people who aren’t having the best results with these 3D Fiber Lashes. I’ve watched tons to hear how other people are getting the best results and as I say I change up my application process regularly. I highly recommend getting the Lash/Brow Comb. It’s a great tool to make these lashes look even better!

The Moodstruck Precision Liners

Oh boy, I do certainly love Younique’s Moodstruck Eye and Lip Liners. They are incredible. They are versatile and inter-changable. They’re cry-proof, sweat-proof and glide on you friction-free. I’ve never been a huge makeup person before (ask any of my friends) but I’ve always worn eye liner and this is absolutely, categorically the best I have ever used. And it stays on until late at night – when I actually have to remove it!

Here is a great video to demonstrate the liners (and the fabulous sharpener). I tried to buy other sharpeners and to be honest they didn’t work with the Younique liners so I was so glad when I got the set of 15 (eye and lip) Liners which comes with our sharpener. Never have I been so excited to get a eye pencil sharpener before!

Lucrative Lip Gloss

Even more than the 3D lashes, I think, I love the Lucrative Lip Gloss. My fave colours are the Lavish, Lucky and Loveable. Possibly in that order. I recently got the entire Lucrative Lips set of 10 – and to be fair, I have not tried them all on yet (I should do that soon).

3 Reasons to Love this Lucrative Lippy

I think I would have to say that I love the Lucrative Lip Gloss for three, main reasons:

1) they don’t dry my lips out;
2) they are not sticky-icky (so annoying when your hair gets caught in glossy lips isn’t it?) and
3) I love that they have a mirror on the side for those touch-up moments!

 

Naturally, I love all our products, but these are some of my absolute faves. If you’re looking for some quality, naturally-based products then look no further. The Younique goal is to provide “healthy, clean, and pure cosmetics”…Well that’s about all for now. Hopefully now you have a feel for what we’ve got.

3D Fiber Lash Mascaras – Real vs Fake

Younique 3D Lashes

Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lash Mascaras - in Glasgow - Younique by TheaBy now you probably have heard of Younique’s 3D Fiber Lash Mascara…You’ve probably seen them somewhere on your timeline, or over on Instagram, from a friend, or you just Googled them and found this.

Younique currently sells over 20,000 of them daily….An increase from the 15k that was sold before we, here in the UK, hopped on the Fiber Lash bandwagon.

Frankly, since joining Younique, there has been a lot of hoopla amongst my Y-sisters about the fact that there are supposedly “real” Younique Fiber Lash Mascaras for sale on eBay, Amazon, and the like.

Really, if this is true, then it’s a very disappointing affair, on so many levels..It goes against the whole concept of Direct Sales.

Plus, it would be breaching Younique’s Terms & Conditions – so I highly doubt any of my legit Y-sisters are actually doing it.

That said, there may be some are for sale as “unwanted gifts” or something like that…I am not 100% sure.

Avoid Fake Fiber Lash Mascara

Arguably what’s even worse is that the majority of these 3D mascaras being sold are actually impostors (see FAKE 3D Fiber Lash Mascaras on eBay and Amazon).

Recently, I heard some people (one was even a friend!) trying to bypass Younique Presenters, opting for the allure of the cheaper option of eBay in order to save herself some money.

They cost is £23 UK (US $29) – so if they’re much cheaper then that, I’d caution you to beware.

Really, because it may end up being more costly in the long run. (Lord knows what’s even in them??)

If they are, in fact fakes, it’s unlikely they’ll be as good as the Real McCoy from Younique.

If you’re that desperate to save yourself the shipping costs, speak to your local presenter (you can find one on the map on our site) and ask them if you can try a pair – buying direct from him or her.

Back of Real Younique 3D Fiber Lash mascara - watch out for fakes with barcodes too.To keep you right, I have taken a picture a back of one of MY younique 3D mascaras.

Sorry, I don’t have any fake 3D fiber lashes to show you as a comparison, because naturally, I am not going to waste my money buying them! 🙂

Look for the ingredients in English/French on the back – along with directions, warning and barcode.

Though this is not always an indication, I have heard some fakes do have the barcode and instructions too.

With these counterfeit goods, it can be easy to be “caught out”…

I’ve heard some people say the fake’s packaging actually looks better than the real ones! (Again, I’ve not seen any fakes to comment about).

Please note that just because it looks similar and possibly even works in the same way – doesn’t mean that the quality or the ingredients are going to be the same.

In fact they’re not.

Here’s a super-scary tale of counterfeit makeupI’d urge you all to read before you go searching for cheap, 3D, fiber lashes for sale.

The Internet is rife with people who’ve had a bad experience after buying cheap knock-offs on Amazon or eBay and the like.

There are horror stories of trying to get refunds once they’ve discovered they bought a fake mascara.

If you don’t buy from us, you probably won’t get the same “Love it” 14-day guarantee but you should have some protection on the site where you purchased the lashes.

Beware of Expired Makeup

While we’re on the general subject of makeup, and pitfalls, another thing to watch out for, is the life span of your makeup.

The products you’re using on a daily basis have a shorter life span than you may realise. This goes for not only your mascara, but also the rest of your makeup too.

This Allure article recommends that you “switch mascara every two to three months to be safe”.

I know I have been guilty of keeping makeup/mascara long past its “use by” date. Not any more. I actually looked forward to dumping ALL my old makeup once my Younique Presenters kit arrived! It was a great feeling of “out with the old and in with the new”.

This article about possible side effects to old makeup may make you question your own…(thought I am sure you won’t be silly enough to be using your same tube/s of mascara, Younique or otherwise, for 10 years).

How gross is that?
