What They Don’t Tell You Before Selling You $30 Mascara

2014 will likely go down in history as the year women became inordinately obsessed with our eyelashes.

Yes, eyelashes.



If you don't know what I'm talking about, you probably aren't very active on Facebook. Or you don't pay attention to an announcement approximately half of your female friends seem to have posted.



They're all selling this $30 mascara called Younique that promises to change your life, improve your mood, and "uplift, empower, and validate" you. What does it do? This:



It's mascara--just in a four-step process. You put your mascara on, then this gel mascara, then fibers, then more gel mascara. Here's the thing, though...those Younique saleswomen will promise you the moon and the stars to get you to buy their product.



In one situation, a girl who was on a TV show I watched this summer chose to help sell Younique. Over the summer, I heard her say on camera that she uses Latisse, a $100+ per month prescription-based product that makes your lashes grow. Yet now that she's being given free Younique products, they post pictures of her super-long lashes and pass it off as being 100% mascara.



I even mentioned on one of her posts that I heard her say earlier she uses Latisse. Her salesperson chimed in to quickly explain to me that this former TV star wears Younique, not Latisse. The saleswoman also answered questions from others with inaccurate information, as I've seen almost every other host do.

So, here's what you should know before you pay $30 for this great mascara:

  • NO, it doesn't come off easily. In fact, even eye makeup remover doesn't take it off. A combination of cleanser, eye makeup remover, and time finally removes the stuff. If you use it every day, you might end up with a mess.
  • It clumps. You'll need an eyelash separator. Or talent with separating your eyelashes with a safety pin without poking your eye out.
  • It will not lengthen your lashes. It makes them fuller. Period. If you see someone saying it'll give you spider-leg eyes, that person is lying.
  • If it doesn't turn your life into magic, they'll tell you you're using it incorrectly. None of their advice makes any difference, by the way. Most of us know how to put on mascara by now.
That said, here's Younique on me. The stuff is pretty good, I must say, considering even with regular mascara my lashes are pretty much nonexistent. But you can see a little clumping. You can also see I don't have spider-leg eyes! That may be a good thing.



All that said, it's a GREAT product. I love the way it makes my lashes look. I just think you should know before you buy what you're getting...so you can invest in a couple of bottles of eye makeup remover and a few bags of cotton balls! 

What "hostess party" items have you bought? Did you find the hostess exaggerated the claims to get you to buy?

  1. Ironically, I think women look better without mascara. My wife doesn't need it, or any makeup for that matter. Natural is always better.

    2. It's not their makeup, but the fact that they are a model who is likely naturally beautiful, sensual and invests her life in fitness. The same with women and male models. Eye shadow makes a bigger difference than mascara.

    3. This is the most infuriating thing men say. NEWS FLASH! We don't wear it because we think you like it. We wear it because WE like it. But god forbid your wife does something that makes her feel pretty and empowering right? Do me a favour and don't ever tell her she looks better without it because when you say that you make her feel like shit inside.

  5. I hate hostess parties with a burning passion (except one, but I'll keep this place PG. lol). HATE.THEM.

    I always end up buying something because I feel so pressured, but I have never found that the claims are true. Pampered Chef is more expensive than Walmart, but it's about the same quality and usefulness as what I get at Walmart.

    Yes, Party Lite candles melt away under hot water, but so do all other candles. And the scents don't last longer than cheap candles I've bought over the years.

    My cousin held a FB online "party" for this mascara. I just can't spend $30 on a tube of mascara. The $4 I spend on the Maybelline I buy (and rarely wear) makes my heart palpitate.

    Luckily, I have very long lashes naturally. They're pretty blonde, though, so you can't see them well without mascara. The $4 stuff works fine, though.

    1. One "party product" I LOVE is Scentsy. But I've never been to a party. My mom discovered it somehow and told me about it. I randomly found some Nashville woman on their site and I order all of mine from them. I did try the store cubes, but the scent lasts about a day. I don't burn candles anymore--I'm too klutzy to take that risk!

  7. I would love to have longer lashes and have known people to get the fake ones that are attached to their normal eyelashes. I think it's pretty expensive to do that though. This product does seem like a more cost effective way to achieve that spider-leg eyelash look. I think your lashes looked good in that photo! :)

    But it is interesting how the long lashes are all the rage right now!

    1. I can't say enough that this mascara works like nothing else I've tried. My lashes don't look like that anymore any other way. They just exaggerate the claims (I mean, it's not going to change your life really--it's mascara!) and don't warn you that you need a blowtorch to remove it. :-)

    2. hey Stephanie, i use lotion to remove mine:) just a normal jergens lotion. you might try it. it takes mine off easily and i have super sensitive eyes that i cant even get water in.

  9. I can't remember the name of the mascara I tried but it had similar steps (think it was by Too Faced?) but I had a ton of fall out with it! My fav mascara is Tarte's Lights Camera Lashes--simple, one step, nice long lashes. Also Mally's mascara is awesome too. Sadly I get roped into a TON of these beauty things since I adore those YouTube channels. Ugh I just can't quit makeup lol

    2. Beth,
      A common complaint of ladies that didn't put the normal mascara on first before the Younique lashes was that it was hard to remove. Often the determined ladies would tug and scrub hard enough that a lash or two would come out. I think blaming Younique for that is unfair because if you pull hard enough on bare lashes they too come out. With that being said, Younique took these complaints seriously. They've reformulated the mascara, and also added uplift serum to it because it nurtures your lashes. Younique also isn't just about mascara. We've got famous liquid mineral foundation, You know the stuff you see on YouTube that covers even sharpie marker drawn all over ladies faces. I personally prefer the concealer and pressed powder because of the smooth airbrushed effect it gives me. I encourage you to check it out! Www.YouniqueCosmetics.ca

  10. I used to have Mary Kay party's a lot when I was in my teens,and early 20s. I fell for them often and always ended up with less money in my wallet and products that made my skin burn. I tried to sell it too- and I felt my adviser was so full of lies and never explained herself properly. She was rich and could afford the journey to sell but I was poor and couldn't invest as easily- and that's why I can't stand these hostess party companies.I hate any sales person that does it for the money, as opposed to educating people.
    I also deal with this in fitness. As a personal trainer, I care more about educating my client than I do about telling people I can train them for as little as $100 a month. I'd rather post pictures of myself working out, cooking meals, and posting progress shots so that everyone can see me in action, and see that I take my own advice, and that I do believe in results first. I want people to see that it is fun to find an exercise - that it is possible to love running or dancing or yoga or what-ever. It is work- but- it's results are priceless- and I feel that should sell itself, without selling!

  12. I was sucked into buying this as well and what they don't tell you is that not only does it clump but it will flake off as well if you don't use enough of the gel stuff and it makes a horrible mess.

    I have yet to find a makeup remover that actually removes it all and I have even tried the expensive stuff. :( But yet, I am a glutton and still use the crap because whether I want to admit it or not, my lashes DO look better with it on than without. *sigh* it sucks being a woman sometimes.

    1. Yep, mascara stains on your eyelids and cheeks. Been there! It takes tons of that gel coat at the end to keep that from happening, I've found. I'm glad I'm not the only one who hasn't figured out how to get the stuff off. The party hostesses always say, "It comes right off with soap and water." Yeah...after about 30 minutes of scrubbing!!!

    2. Just thought I should let you know that its been remformulated. It shouldn't flake off anymore, and removal is easy. I too got sucked in but I fell in love with Younique's Cosmetics. I guess when they were new they still had a few kinks to figure out. Now that they've established themselves they've got way more than mascara. I'm sure by now you need a new bottle of mascara, and we've got free shipping on all orders over $75 this month. Perfect opportunity to check out our uplift infused easy to remove version of the 3D+ Mascara, and try out our amazing concealer. I'm sure you've seen the photo of the tattoo's covered up flawlessly floating around. That's the Concealer not the liquid touch! So many are claiming it's the Liquid touch to get larger sales. But honesty is my policy, I won't lie to get a few measly dollars. I love the product and The Younique Foundation supports victims of sexual abuse. That's why I choose Younique. Anyways I'm babbling. I just wanted to let you know our Mascara is better now. I want women to feel as beautiful as I do in this stuff! Check it out, www.youniquecosmetics.ca

    I agree with what Alex said.

    Something I've bought from a "oh, well, since you're here now, you might want to buy something, so here's a catalog" hostess was Tastefully Simple spinach herb mix. Actually it's pretty good.

    3. Carmel, my husband, brother and all four of his SONS have the same movie star kind of lashes! I've got a pic somewhere when they had about n inch of snow sitting on my nephew's lashes. It's not fair and that's an understatement. As far as Younique goes, the author apparently didn't follow directions for the mascara. I'm what you call a "kitnapper". I bought the sales kit and never sold. I just wanted good makeup. The mascara, if put on properly, WILL give you amazing long "spider leg" lashes. It can't be applied once and be done. The first time I used the 3D lashes, I was in the phase of "shock and awe". I was amazed at the babydoll lashes I had! I had no problem with removal either. I used baby wipes. I had a very hard time paying $30 for mascara but after my first experience, it was worth it. I know a lot of women, personally, who sell Younique and they not only do it bc they really do love how it makes them feel, but bc it's gluten free AND monies go back to the foundation for sexually abuse women and children. I'm a huge skeptic, but an old highschool friend has been there for abuse as a child. They do some amazing stuff. I am just not a go gettum seller type.

    1. We used to do the "smoky eyes" thing for parties and big events. I couldn't get it to look right. The MAC cosmetics store will do your makeup for free if you make a $50 purchase of makeup. (At least they used to.) So if you're heading out for a party, they can really fix you up.

  18. I haven't regularly worn makeup in over 10 years. These days, I only wear it for an extremely special occasion, like a wedding or big event. When I did regularly wear makeup, I loved eye makeup and wasn't too much into lipstick.

    My most-viewed blog post by a landslide is about my experiences with Arbonne. I had to disable comments on that post because of two people who were leaving long, abusive rants, all because I dared to call Arbonne out as a MLM scheme and say I didn't like the products or their exaggerated claims.

    1. All of those things are Multi-Level Marketing and I'll say it even if it's controversial. I don't care. They call it "referral marketing" these days or whatever, but they make their money by bringing people in to sell beneath them and making a percentage off of what those people sell. Those are really "pyramid schemes" if you want to get down to it. In MLM, the lower you are on the pyramid, the less you make. The guys at the top are the ones making all the money while most of the others are just doing a lot of work in exchange for free or discounted products.

    Replies
    1. She got compliments all summer for her long lashes and said, "It's Latisse." The second she stepped off the reality show, though, Younique handed her some free product (probably acknowledging her beautiful lashes) and she started promoting them. I'm sure she wears Younique along with her supposed "naturally long" lashes, but she's no longer sharing the fact that the mascara isn't 100% to credit for those lashes. The mascara does make your lashes look fuller and stand out more, but they're not going to add a half an inch of length to them. The fibers attach, but they don't attach at the end of each lash.

    1. It's mascara--but it actually has fibers that attach to your eyelashes to make them look fuller. The gel is supposed to hold it all in place. So it's a little more than mascara, which is why it comes with a few more complications, I guess.

  33. I haven't purchased any hostess party items. I haven't been invited to anything. It's probably because I don't shower regularly, but that's another story. I rarely use mascara. It makes my eyes water.

    1. These Younique people are doing all their parties on Facebook, which I guess is why I keep seeing it. I don't think anyone does in-person parties anymore. Everything's done through Facebook now.

      Delete
    2. Younique was actually built around the concept of being a completely online social media DS company years before they opened those big mascara doors. However, nowadays a lot of ladies including myself do home parties and booth events. People like to see, touch, feel, and try things on before they buy. I know I do. So that's why it's so big on the internet and facebook. It was meant to be.

    1. I just saw the 5th or 6th party I've seen since summer. The first time I saw it, I was scared off by the price. The second time, it was my mother-in-law's husband's daughter-in-law (confusing, I know!) and she's family, so I bought from her. I do love it. I just think people should know the full story.

    2. make sure you don't say that around any y-sister or youniquers as i've heard them call themselves. my ex-wife sells younique and before we split up, just the mentioning of anything negative about younique would trigger an argument. God forbid you mentioned pyramid scheme, over priced. Completely drank the cool-aid about the company, so she truly believes that it accomplishes everything they promise.

    3. Maybe that's because you didn't know that our team members really are like sisters to us. We care about each other. We send each cards if someone goes to the hospital, we reward each other and help each other. We have secret santa gift exchanges between ourselves that has absolutely nothing to do with makeup or Younique.

      Now, flying into an argument or getting angry isn't something I would do since I know that someone who isn't walking in my shoes every day doesn't know what goes on with things like that and even if I told them they probably wouldn't care or understand because it's not happening to them and that's completely logical and reasonable. I'm sorry that she was so fanatical about it. I love Younique, but I really dislike the fanatics myself. I like the real women who did it for the right reasons and have respect for everyone else' opinion besides just their own.

    1. They're missing a prime opportunity, Kimba! They could sell expensive makeup remover to go with it if they'd stop telling everyone it comes off with soap and water. Maybe that's what I'm doing wrong--I don't use "soap" to remove my makeup. I use facial cleanser and eye makeup remover!

      Delete
    2. Actually, they sell Shine Wipes that are $20 for 36 cloths and are made specifically for eye make-up and the 3D Mascara. I've worn Younique for 2 years and I sell it now. The Shine Wipes takes it off withing a minute with no harsh scrubbing or rubbing, I use a different cleanser for my face as it doesn't really work well on other makeup but it's perfect for they eyes and that mascara. When they first started I saw all the Mascara hubbub and I have no lashes, but what got me hooked was their Mineral Eyeshadow Pigments and the fact that everything I tried just made my skin better and looked better than expensive department store brands. I was a cosmetologist and I'd always used expensive makeup but for 2 years I've worn Younique and I can tell the difference from the absence of the chemicals in other makeup. They also have a new formula that is better than the previous, but honestly, their skin care products and a lot of their other products are what kept me with them and now selling it. It sells itself and it's really fun for me. I will admit I don't even wear the mascara all the time just because I have very hooded eyes and no matter what I do they just get weighed down by my lids, but I've started using their new Uplift Eye Serum and my lids have raised, and the bags under my eyes have shrunk and I cringe when I look at pictures from a year ago. They do have some pretty awesome stuff. And it's not as expensive as other Brand Names whose mascara destroyed my lashes because of the chemicals and the fact that I had to use every type of mascara remover I could find and still had to scrub the dickens out of them every single time. People may look at me and think, she's just saying that because she sells it, but I know why I'm saying it. It did change my life, but it wasn't the mascara. I wish I'd started selling it two years ago when I started wearing it.

  55. In the 1980's when I was in my twenties I had a reaction to mascara..the skin got all peely around my eyes. Then in the 90's I developed chronic dry eyes. Any fibers that drop on my eyeball scratch and itch. I just use eye liner and go for the optical illusion of thick lases. I believe we women tend to be slaves to trends and fashion and it comes at a cost. I would rather have self worth because of an accomplishment rather than a "doll's eye" look. One would think that the Western woman has it made....not necessarily so.

  57. Hi ladies! Seems like my last post did not go through. If it did sorry for the double post. As everyone knows ( I think ) The 3D fiberlash mascara is a false eye lash alternative. It comes with two wands, the Gel and The fibers. The gel is lengthening, and contains collagen to plump your lashes. The fibers are their to add length, and fullness. Since this is a 3 step process mascara, and because it is a fairly new concept, a lot of people think they are applying it correctly, when really they are not. All it takes is simply following the directions ( you would be suprised how many people dont, and then they wonder why it does not look right) and watch the video on the website showing the application process. The video is less than 2 minutes. We sell 20,000 mascara's Daily. Thats how well our product is loved. We wouldnt take a MAC lipstick and smear it all over our lips and chin, and then claim it doesnt work because of how it looks right? :) Thats just consumer error. Take the time to read the short directions and to watch the short video. If you have a local Younique consultant, if youre still not getting the results you want, have her direct you and help you figure out what it is you are doing incorrectly. Youll be so glad you did because $29 for a natural ingredient based, false eye lash..and eye lash extension alternative mascara which lasts 2-3 months with daily use is nothing. Youre either saving hundreds on lash extensions, about 50-100 in falsies if not more, or getting better results than a typically mascara. Give it another whirl. Its worth it. Follow me on instagram @SuchADollface or email me at suchadollfacexo@gmail.com if you have questions or want to see our other great products :)

  59. I forgot to add, this is how easily the mascara comes off for me. I run very warm water. I run my pointer finger, middle finger, and thumb under the water. I then press my fingers to my eye lashes. And gently massage off the mascara, while continuing to run my fingers back under the very warm water, and then continue this until its rinsed off. Its very quick and easy. I dont use makeup remover or any other method. To get length with the fibers, you bounce the fibers to the tips of the lashes after the fresh coat of gel is applied. This makes the fibers stick to the tips. Then you seal it with the gel so they dont fall off. The product will clump if you apply too much gel or too much fibers. Just as any mascara will clump when too much is applied :) Eye lash separators come in handy just as with any mascara if you have that problem. If ya'll want to try for yourself, the mascara comes with a 14 day money back guarantee and 3 months to exchange. I'm sure you all have a rep somewhere around you. Try it out and if you dont like it on the off chance, send it back. We are all entitled to our own opinion. This is mine. I tried the mascara and became a rep the next week because I love it so much. :)

  61. My makeup savvy mid-20's daughter bought the Younique 3D Fiber mascara. She dismissed her almost immediate eye irritation as spring allergies. Three weeks later she was at the eye doctor being treated for an infection in both eyes from corneal abrasions caused by fibers embedded in her cornea. She had stopped using the mascara two weeks prior, but her eye irritation didn't clear up. A longtime contact lens wearer, she is diligent about removing her eye makeup every single night. Her words, "well they won't get many repeat customers!"

  62. I am a Younique presenter and Everything about this article really concerns me. None of this is true. I wear my mascara everyday and it washes off with warm water. I get multiple compliments on my lashes since I have been wearing the 3d+ Mascara. We do have new Formula and I do notice that this an article from when we had our original first mascara out. But I do hope this article does not give the impression that Younique is all based on lies. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and I respect that, but I did want to let those know who are just learning about Younique that there are Millions of women out there that do LOVE Younique! We have mascara selling with every blink of the eye. I truly wish the author of this article would give it another try. There are "Counterfeit" mascaras out there and this is a huge concern of mine. It is TOXIC and very BAD for you. You can only buy Younique 3D Mascara from an independent Presenter. NOT off Ebay, Amazon, Etsy or any 3rd Party sites. If anyone one has question or concerns please message me. www.LasheswithTasha.com in the Connect with me section. Have a Beautiful day Ladies. !

I agree, and I also would just like to add that when younique states "uplift.empower.validate" thats because everything that is purchased through them a percentage goes towards the younique foundation which helps women survivors of sexual abuse from around the World - hence the statement. They dont mean the mascara will change your life, but it may help change another ladies life

  65. First off, I want everyone to know that Mary Kay's makeup remover takes this stuff off REALLY easy! It takes one or two more wipes than the average mascara, but I've never had a problem getting the stuff off. Wet your pad with the solution and this stuff comes off in just a few wipes. At least for me! I've never found anything cosmetic wise that Mary Kay's makeup remover couldn't take off easily. No, I'm not a Mary Kay lady, I've just been using the remover for 22 years, so it was already in my bathroom when I bought Younique Fiberlash Mascara.

    I'm not a presenter, so I have no reason to give big claims, but I can tell you that when I use Younique (WITHOUT REGULAR mascara first!!!), it makes a DRASTIC difference in how my lashes look. I had the same results you show, until I watched a video with someone demonstrating a special technique. No, it is NOT the way you would normally put on your mascara, so it's not something that you're automatically doing. I had to practice it a couple times, but now I can do it quickly and efficiently. Yes, I get nice volume. I also get incredible length. I have extremely short, sparse, blonde natural lashes. Regular mascara will let you see them, if you actually look for them. Fiberlash makes them twice as full AND twice as long. I get no fallout and no clumps. There is a way to apply this stuff correctly, but unfortunately, the majority of the presenters don't know about it. Go fig.

    Anyway, it won't give you wings to fly to the moon, but it CAN give you super-long, NON-clumpy lashes- IF you use it *correctly*. If you're interested, I can give you the Youtube link to the video I watched to learn it, or upload it to you. It made a HUGE difference!! And, I don't have to buy another mascara to put on first!!

    $29 is A LOT for friggin mascara, so I understand why some women will say "no thank you, it doesn't make that much of a difference for me!" I live on a disability income, so I totally get it! I bought mine with money I got for Christmas last year. I don't regret it. I LOVE my Fiberlash Mascara, because I FINALLY have eyelashes!!!

  66. Hey, everyone, just use joboba oil, baby oil, hemp oil, almond oil, coconut oil to remove ALL AND ANY makeup. i use hemp oil. :) ps there is a reason why beauty gurus never talk about younique. it's makeup sold by women who have no idea how to apply makeup. younique girls are like avon reps. they just want you to by the "best makeup ever". There was this girl trying to sell me some fucking concealer for $29!! the tube is SO tiny (.34 fl oz). I said no thanks i can buy an almost 4 oz of dermablend body creme (i use it as foundation) for about $20-25.

    her response was
    "+Nikki L yeah because we use natural ingredients and you're getting your monies worth.. You can go to Walmart and get a cheap $3 concealer that will clog up your pores and come off within seconds and not conceal anything. But Younique is not for everyone.
    If you tried it, you'd be hooked, though. It's not a rip off at all."

    sorry, but i have been suckered into buying their starter kit last year and i have over 100 eyeshadows that are terrible. they are so chalky and hard to blend out. younique sucks and their reps are rude. end of story.

    1. Wow, I know a lot of people think Younique is a pyramid scheme and that it's all a sham with make-up that is not anywhere as good as the presenters claim, but that's just not the case. For every person who thinks that there are hundreds who love it because it is very good. You are right about one thing. A lot of women got into Younique to sell it and don't really know anything about makeup or even bothered to research Younique hence the "pressure" sales and embellishments.

      However, I started wearing Younique for two years and then decided to sell it because it literally did change the health of my skin and having used MAC and all sorts of other ridiculously expensive makeup before that, was saving money because it's not that expensive. Yes, it is more expensive than drugstore, but not the huge expensive brand names.

      As for the concealer, it is a very small tube and even I was at first skeptical, but I've had mine since it launched and have had yet to buy a new one. That product, our Liquid Touch Foundation that goes on as a liquid and dries to powder have been on back order basically since they came out. They work. They really are healthy. And you feel like you're not wearing anything.

      My first kit was the one you probably got with all the samples of eye pigments. I am a licensed cosmetologist from California and beauty consultant. Those pigments are better than any I've ever used. They are what made me start wearing Younique, not the Mascara. Pigments aren't like regular eyeshadow. Some of us presenters aren't women who have no idea how to apply makeup, push sales, annoy people, and generally give Younique a bad name. I'm one of them. I never push for sales. Yes, I have events all the time running, but all I do is post REAL tutorials of myself applying our products and actually telling people about the products because I did my research a long time ago. Other than that, I play a ton of games and give away samples and have fun. I don't sell the makeup, I share it and then they buy it because they want to. I actually do a lot of home parties because I love to apply makeup and I love sitting ladies down and not letting them see anything until I'm done and get to see the reactions on their face when they look in the mirror and see that the colors I asked them they could never wear looked fabulous on them. I teach my customers how to apply makeup in a flattering way for their skin tones, face shapes, personalities. I don't make million dollars but I'm not trying to. I don't have to work at what I do, just have fun, and get that amazing feeling when another lady looks at herself like she's looking at a beautiful stranger. That makes me happy. I'm sorry that so many people have had to deal with individuals who do not know enough about the company, the products, or even how to use them, but so many people jumped on the bandwagon back when they started that a lot feel like they don't need to. It's wrong, I'll say it flat out. I have an amazing team though, we all work together, we all know everything there is to know about our company and products and as soon as something new comes out to learn we dig in with a passion. It makes me sad to know that so many people scare others away from it so they never try it and never decide for "themselves" whether they like it.

    2. Oh, ya. That presenter's kit I bought two years ago with about 100 sample "pigments" (not shadow) lasted me two years. Until I started selling and doing tutorials and makeovers I hadn't run out of a single pigment or concealer sample. It lasts a long time. Especially when you know what you are doing with it and applying it right. Pigments aren't chalky and you don't apply them with eyeshadow applicators, you're just wasting good makeup and probably looking like caca while you're at it. ;) (that is not a statement directed at you btw, just in general as I've had to explain that to so many women over so many years before I even started wearing theirs, along with having to explain how to apply a lot of other things that women have been applying wrong for most of their lives, like concealer, which actually gets used up faster and doesn't do it's job all that great unless it is applied correctly and when it is, it only takes a safety pin tip size amount of that little bottle to not only cover dark areas under the eye but also highlight your under-eye area down to your cheekbones giving you a glowing wide awake fresh finish. I could go on and on about the products that are so great they are always flying off the shelves faster than we can keep the supply, especially since we went worldwide recently, but I won't.

      I'll talk about something else. I'm an adult and I know Corporate or other presenters may not like it that I do this, but I tell the truth. I love blending buds, but I won't use Younique's. I use a drugstore brand that is easier to clean, cheaper, and works just as well. There are certain products that don't interest me all that much but my customers love them. I just don't use them. If a lady comes to me with questions about a product or tool that I don't specifically use Younique's I will not try to sell it to her. If she wants to buy it fine, but I only talk about and endorse things I have tried, use, and like. Which is most of our products but not any company in the world is perfect and can make every single person happy. We are all too different for that.

      So I guess in closing, all I really wanted to get across was that you used a generalization that isn't true. No generalization ever is. Younique doesn't suck and not every rep is rude and pushy and it's not the end of the story. Younique is only going to keep growing, as a matter of fact, if it weren't for those types of presenters we would already have bypassed where we are now because they give us a bad image and turn people off of it, but Younique is only going to get bigger and better, and honest to God, I hope all our presenter's do as well.

    3. Hmm, I just wondered something. Perhaps beauty guru's never talk about Younique because they would prefer to sell overpriced, harmful products than have to actually care about the people they are serving and really want to help them and not just "look" prettier, but learn things, feel more confident in themselves, save money, and make new great friends while they are at it. :)

  68. Wow...can't say enough except thank you for the reviews...despite the "natural products" that's mostly vegan...my sensitive eyes would still get irritated. Plus $29 for mascara? I get out MAYBE once or twice a month and they are Dr visits. I can't rectify spending that much money to wear twice a month so I don't look as sick as I am. Also...who in their right mind wants to put SOAP on their eyes? Even coconut oil can make your vision pretty blurry. You don't want anything on your eye lashes that can make it hard to get off...does anyone actually realize some of those mascaras that are waterproof are actually made with TAR? No thanks...I use a little eyeliner and eye makeup and a little blush..only because I'm fair skinned and have a very pale look because of diseases. I also wear glasses so not like my eyes will pop out anyway.
    Really appreciate the MLM talk...and you're right!!! Its still all pyramid!! I've been in several of those home based sales and Arbonne as much as I loved the products...I jus5 couldn't make a go of it.. You're only able to make a go of it IF you have a good upliner who's not stuck on herself because she had enough money to buy all she wants while you're getting by on disability.

  73. The company actually sells their prodcuts directly to amazon pretty much screwing all of their presenters. I called amazon to make sure it was infact younique and it was confirmed that amazon only purchases from the manufacture. Oh and you can buy from third party seller on amazon too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=531oKKpBONc

  74. That's interesting as the company doesn't sell directly to anyone. you can only buy from presenter's. ya, there is a lot on amazon and ebey. the mascara's though, if they are under $20 are fake and will melt your eyes out from china. as for the other a ton of girls stop selling and have product they never sold so they sell it on there. they aren't supposed to. no one is supposed to sell younique on any outlet like amazon, ebay, craigslist, etc. lol @confirmed by amazon they ONLY purchase from manufacturer (which they can't)! i have a bridge to sell you too. ;)

  75. I loved this post. You were more honest than most of the other mlm/pyramid, is Younique a scam, posts I have read. I signed up with the company Jan 13th and haven't made a sale yet which is okay. I will be using my blog to get customers and I'm sure you know that growing organic traffic is not an overnight process.

    But I appreciate your honesty. It will help people go in to their purchase with their eyes wide open. I respect your honesty, most definitely!

    1. younique is not a scam I've sold a few items..I joined a month ago and I've made my commissions.. everything has gone accordingly. Do research on how to make sales etc. like when you do videos it either has to be informing or funny or one other thing to catch people's attention. but going live is better. when you make videos you have a 5 minute window when you go live you have 20 minute window.. and what I mean by that is people only pay attention to 5 minutes of a video and pay more attention to a live video. and they also say not to come off Sales pitchy.. be personable post regular statuses about your life and about who you are. people want to know if they can trust you. (: I hope this helps you!

  79. THERES A NEW FORMULA i sell younique and i try to be as honest as possible.. i never found the old formula hard to come off (but i never tried the Original formula so i dont know) but tthe formula before this would dry out in a week. Aftee i realized that i quit pushing our 3D fiberlashes because i wamt customers who are happy and who want to come back. For me the best part about selling anything wether it be at work or with younique are the REGULARS who you get to know and sometimes become good friends. Check me out on Facebook Christina Chiarello

    this new formula creates length after 1 or 2 coats. and its a 3 step process

    Gel
    Fibers
    (apply gel and fibers to other eye to let the fibers dry onto the gel so they dont come off and "clump" when you apply gel again)
    and gel to seal those fibers in place.

    And if you buy and you dont like it ill get you your money back...

    and just because one presenter with younique provided false advertisement doesnt mean we all do ( a lot do actually and im sorry..) i dont.. and i know you dont have any reason to believe me so i understand if people still act as if were all the same..

    anyway good luck to all of you and i hope yall have a wonderful night!

  80. I also sell younique! I had two customers try our mascara and did not like it, but they were able to return them for a full refund with our love it guarantee (: I personally like the mascara, but my favorite product is our cream eye shadows and our liquid concelar/foundation. It makes a HUGE difference with my face in covering up red splotches and blemishes! Send me an email through my website if you have any questions I would love to help anyone out!! (:
