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?
