3D Mascara: Yes, It Works! (Long, Dark, Standout Lashes)

There’s not a whole lot to say on this because the photos are far more powerful than any words can be… See below. But it is worth mentioning that I am a known lash coveter. I’ve used Latisse (it works, but slowly); I’ve experimented with expensive lash extensions; and I’ve tried just about every mascara promising “your longest lashes ever.” I’m not easy to impress.

So, when my co-worker Rosemary started selling Younique Products and it’s 3D mascara, I asked her if I could try it (always the sceptic). I knew my Arkansas Bride readers would love to know if this “magic” mascara really worked, as it could be an amazing way to get the false lash look for bridals and the wedding day, without having to actually glue on fakies (and without worrying about one falling off!).

Rosemary agreed and so here is my official beauty review in pictures!

To use the 3D Mascara, you apply one coat regular mascara.

JUST MASCARA.

This is the mascara I used.

Then, using the 3D Mascara, you apply one coat of the gel to one eye, followed quickly by a light dusting of the fibers onto the same eye. Then, apply another layer of the gel to that eye to set the fibers. Repeat the same steps for eye #2.

3D MASCARA (1 Coat).

Apply a second (or third) coat of gel and fibers, if desired. Basically you just play with it until you get it down and find the right length and VAVAVOOM for your eyes.

This is the 3D mascara: gel and fiber tubes. IMG_5167

Today’s Post from Mrs. & the Misc.

I was going to write a wonderfully insightful post today…    but I’m a new mom.

I was going to pump for my daughter three times today at the office…    but I’m a new working mom.

I was going to dry my hair this morning…     but I’m a new mom.

I was going to finish editing all these stories today…    but I’m a new working mom.

I was never gonna be like this when I had kids…      but I’m a new mom.

And I get it now.

The end.

Update a mirror for $.99

I’ve had this old wrought iron mirror since college, it was a gift and to tell the truth it was never my favorite piece, so lately it has been sitting in the back of a closet, but a fresh coat of $.99 spray paint gave it a shabby chic update.

Before.
