A Younique Journey: Am I ready for this level of awesome makeup?

younique unboxing presenter kitI feel like I’m about to embark on a whole new level of awesome when it comes to makeup, people. So, as I mentioned last week, my friend Sarah recently introduced me to this Younique makeup stuff. After trying it for a couple of weeks, I posted about it and shared my thoughts–the stuff is great.

That, along with the fact that I am in love with the company’s whole philosophy (it happens to fit RIGHT IN with my message–it’s “Uplift. Empower. Motivate.”–don’t you love it?), led me to shell out $99 for a presenter’s kit.

(Which, TBH, is really more like a sweet deal for anyone–the whole marketing thing is done online and there’s no reason to need to share these things with any potential customers).

See, all of the “parties” you do are purely online. The reason for the presenter’s kit? Simple–the company wants you to USE them and talk about them to your friends and relatives via social media. That’s the whole deal–what could be better, right?

I’ve got probably 40 or 50 little pots of colored stuff that has labels like “matte” and “pigment” and “concealer” and something else…along with another set of 3D Fiber Lashes (woot, can’t ever have too many of these, I’m telling you!) and some makeup brushes and a little white charm….and a few other things.

Plus, it came in this super cute leather-looking case with embossed designs. It looks classy and expensive. I always enjoy stuff like this–and it could be used for makeup or for something else. It’s got touch appeal too.

But the intimidation comes in because, while I like to think I’m pretty skilled with basic makeup stuff, all these little pots and jars and mixing and whatnot–this stuff is a whole other level for me. Check out what people do with this stuff–it’s kind of amazing. Can I do it? We shall see!

But you know what? I’m going to give it a shot, and see if a “real” person can effectively use this stuff. I know I’ve managed to do pretty well with the 3D Fiber lashes (well, now that I’ve figured out how to properly use them–a post is coming up on that one later) and the other few things  I’ve tried. But this color stuff? I have no clue.

At this point, I’ll ask you–have you tried Younique products before? Do you like them, and what are your best tips for all these colors and how to use them most effectively? All links and ideas will be appreciated.

As for me, I’ll keep you posted–I’ll review and share my own progress/experiments/successes and failures with this brave new makeup frontier right here at QueenBeeing.com. Stay tuned.

Virtual Beauty Bash: Get Younique With QueenBeeing

younique lashes modeledSo, my friend Sarah brought me a few products from this awesome makeup company called Younique recently, and she did so with the intention of having me both love it and talk about it to my blog readers, among others.

After having tried the products for two weeks, I’m totally hooked. I am especially fond of the “false” eyelashes (called Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes). They’re applied a lot like mascara, but really cause your eyelashes to be considerably fuller and longer. This has something to do with the second coat you apply, which is the “fiber” coat.

I also really like the primer and the mineral makeup/coverup and I’m very excited about the rosewater facial refresher stuff. The BB cream does a great job and the makeup brushes are as good as any I’ve ever used, but better shaped for certain looks, in my opinion.

Those are the only products I’ve tried so far, but Sarah has raved about the eye pigments, so I’m looking at giving those a shot as well, among other products (like the anti-aging ones, shh!).
