Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes

Wow. These 3D Moodstruck Fibre Lashes from House of Exquisiteness at Younique are frankly amazing. Check out the before and after results below. There’s no doubt that they make a statement!

Fibre on the brush I’ve never used any fibre lash product so had no idea what to expect. The first stage is to use the transplanting gel as you would do a normal mascara and then quickly, whilst its wet, use the 3D fibres over the top so they stick and then seal the look with a final application of the gel.

I was pretty fascinated with the fibres when I pull the wand out of the tube, it’s nothing like a traditional mascara. It took me a little bit of practice to make sure that the fibres were in the right place (I ended up using a cotton bud) and then I sealed them on.

I found the finishing effect really outstanding. Long and thick lashes. Lashes where there were none before! I could even tell the difference when I popped my glasses on.

The products are packed with vitamins and other extracts ‘known to provide antioxidant benefits’ which you can find out more about on the website.

As with all mascaras (maybe just on me?) I found that by the end of the evening (a full day later) I did notice that there were a few stray fibres underneath my eyes. This could just be because it was the first time I’d used the product.

3D Moodstruck lashes are now at the very top of my favourite beauty products, probably not for every day use but definitely nights out, special occasions and on days when I need to feel extra fierce!

War Paint Makeup bag from Smudge by JillyWhen Jill sent this parcel to our office, I got to thinking about our first meeting and just how different things are now.

It was a couple of years ago, I was delivering digital training across Yorkshire and she was working on the same programme. We connected immediately, two northern chatty lasses having a right banter!

Time rolls forward and she’s been a busy lady designing websites for businesses but also following her passion to launch her own cosmetics and skincare range.

Which is no mean feat.

I was genuinely over the moon to receive the parcel, all beautifully wrapped in brand colour tissue and tied with raffia string. I felt really proud of this gutsy lass.

Hidden within the parcel was a 100ml tube of Natural Tea Tree and Lemon Face Wash, £12 and a fab makeup bag emblazoned with War Paint (true enough most days!) which retails at £10.

The face wash is lush. A really subtle mix of tea tree and lemon, the lemon fragrance wins out for me, handy as I love fruity fragrances. My face felt really clean after using it and it’s especially good for oily skin (mine isn’t so I’d probably use the product every other day).

Jilly is developing a full range of skincare products and hand poured soy candles which are cruelty free, only tested on humans, organic and the ingredients are sourced in the UK.  Next on my list to try; the scrumptious looking lip balm and glosses.
