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?

    Hi, I’m in Oregon USA. I just realized that my $90 worth of younique fiber 3D lashes I bought on eBay are FAKE!! I compared them to pictures on other websites and the back and barcodes looked the same to me. I guess I was looking at other fakes even tho they said they were genuine. I buy bulk on eBay or stores locally and resell them on eBay and other sites. I just got suspended from eBay for selling FAKE Younique 3D lashes! I had NO IDEA THEY WERE FAKE!! I looked at the account of the seller I bought them from and she is STILL SELLING FAKE LASHES!!! Her eBay ID is JUSTBEHAPPY2014 I don’t know if they are all caps or lower case but…. PLEASE check out her auctions and tell me if they are fake! She doesn’t have many auctions, just at the start of every month. Maybe she bought a whole bunch from the Younique website as a consumer and is reselling them? The auctions do start at 99cents. I feel like such a fool! I got them 23 days ago so Its too late to get a refund 🙁

      Hello, I am so sorry to hear about this eBay purchase. I love a bargain as much as the next gal but not when it comes to cosmetics!! It’s just not worth it.
      There will be no one buying at cost and selling on eBay. Not the real ones anyway…

      Next week – on July 15th – you can buy the brand new Younique 3D Fiber Lashes+ – which will not have counterfeits (at least for a while) so hopefully that will squash these counterfeit buyers/sellers. There are 2 international patents pending on them to protect against these illegal 3D makeup sellers!!

      For now as much of a pisser that it is, I’d write that ninety bucks off as a costly lesson, but don’t be too hard on yourself. Thousands of people very day do it. I had a friend do it too (in the UK). She’d never even heard of these lashes until me and then went and bought fakes off the Internet. (Cheers for that lady).

      Anyway…FYI – for $99 you could have got over $200 worth of real Younique makeup in a presenters kit that contains 2 sets of the brand new lashes that aren’t on sale to the public until next week! May be worth signing up just so you can sell the new real 3D Lashes+ and make money at it and get FREE makeup in the process. 🙂

      Anyway no hard sell there, honest (LOL)…but if you can take any pictures of the ones you have (packaging esp and contents inside) – we can post on here!!

      PS: I’d report her to eBay…And maybe post on the community there. The problem is that people only go on there AFTER they find this out. I wish I could do more to raise awareness BEFORE unsuspecting people get duped by them! I’ve now written like three blogs directly about them – warning people and educating them (it’s not worth the cut price because you don’t know what you’re getting in them).

      PPS: I’m from California myself – so, howdy neighbor! xo

    I stupidly brought mine from eBay, I used on Saturday and I have just walked through the door from the emergencie eye unit, my eyes are golf balls, red, very sore and the swelling is getting worse as the hours pass. It’s burning and on top of my eye, to me I wouldn’t have told the difference.. And it’s not my eyes sensitive to the product beacuse I used these for two years now.. Won’t be buying of eBay ever again x

      Oh hon, that terrible. I really am so sorry to hear that you had such a bad reaction to the eBay 3D lashes. It’s totally awful that the fake mascaras (and other cosmetics) even can exist, and can potentially contain such harmful chemicals. You’re right they look amazingly similar to the real McCoys! You take care of your peepers! x
