Country Prints + The Vanity: Younique Giveaway.

I’m baaaaaaaaaaack!

Vacation was a blast. The takeaway: how I live in a city without a brick and mortar Zara + a Topshop is a straight up miracle. Seriously. Bless Chicago and it’s Magnificent Mile.

On the blog today is a super easy, definitely breezy dress from Target with a pair of chunky-soled ankle boots. Labor Day may mark the unofficial end of summer, but the weather’s still warm here in Kansas City.

The Vanity: Younique Giveaway.

younique moonstruck 3D fiber lashesI’m a mascara girl. Armed with a solid tube of mascara that lengthens + separates makes me feel like I can conquer the world. Or at least like I don’t look half-asleep. (Same thing, right?)

My esthetician gave me a Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes kit to try. I had heard a little about the product before, and knew of a friend who tried ’em with awesome results, so I was game. Younique’s fiber lashes are a 2-step system and a 3-step process. Each kit comes with 2 tubes:

  • A tube of the transplanting gel
  • A tube of the natural fibers (made from green tea)

On clean lashes, you follow this process:

  1. Apply the transplanting gel as you would mascara, root to tip of your top and bottom lashes.
  2. Apply the natural fibers from mid-lash to tip, slowly wiggling the wand to build the lashes up and out.
  3. Seal with a coat of the transplanting gel.

I dig this stuff; it’s a great way to build up your lashes without falsies (which I find super tricky to apply and uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time). A few application tips I’ve picked up along the way:

  • Apply before concealer + foundation. Fibers can flake onto your undereye area during application, and you don’t want to ruin your flawless face trying to wipe them off. So apply lashes first, then use a makeup wipe to clean up any fiber flakes, and finally apply foundation and concealer. Boom!
  • Go slow + light-handed. Moving too quickly with a heavy hand deposits a ton of fibers on your lashes, which gets real clumpy real fast.
  • Use the fibers sparingly on your bottom lashes. Overloading on the bottom = spider eyes. Just a little touch of the fibers here, if any.
  • Don’t forget your usual. Swipe on a coat of your normal mascara after you apply the final layer of transplanting gel to give your lashes a bit more volume.

Now I’m offering you the chance to win your own set of 3D Moodstruck Lashes with a $30 giveaway to Younqiue. The brand offers a wide range of makeup and beauty products, from super saturated pigments to BB cream. The winner of the giveaway will get to choose her own product, up to $30 retail.

PS- can’t wait for the giveaway and want to buy your own set of 3D lashes? They retail for $29 (which I routinely pay for Diorshow) and you can pick them up right here.

  1. I have heard that the 3d fibers mascara is wonderful and just got some. In fact I haven’t even opened them yet. So since I have the mascara I think I would want to try the mineral concealer.

  2. You’ll definitely have to share photos from your vacay! The weather is HOT as heck here in NYC which is odd to have Pumpkin Spice Lattes available at Starbucks when it’s humid. Makes no sense lol
