Younique Makeup Reviews
But one thing may presenters leave out in their Younique reviews is that all Younique makeup is mineral based and are 100% free from chemicals, parabens, talc or starch, preservatives and oil. Can you say that about the makeup you have in your home?
Take a look at the bottles and containers in your drawers and makeup bags. You can even pull up the website of the makeup brand you are currently using. You probably won’t find a list of ingredients and the reason is, they don’t want you to know.
Chances are if you did know what was in the products you were using, you would want to throw them in the garbage and never buy them again. Does your eyeshadow, concealer or blush contain Talc? Do you see anything that ends with the word “paraben”?
Parabens are used as a preservative in many cosmetics.
This is the kinda of stuff most Younique reviews leave out, but if find extremely important to know. So are Paraben’s really bad? Well – you decide for yourself: Parabens can mimic the hormone estrogen, which is known to play a role in the development of breast cancers. Researchers have found parabens in breast tumors and believe there is a relationship between parabens and tumors.
It may just be a causal link between a chemical and cancer but I would think that would be enough to avoid that product.
Anyone wanting to know about Younique makeup certainly doesn’t have to look too far. There are Younique reviews everywhere. Younique reviews may be written or in video format such as a video tutorial on their products. Either way there is not a shortage of information on this new, up and coming company.
Younique Mascara Reviews:
Have you ever see Younique mascara reviews and thought the extension length they give was too good to be true? Well is’t not… And just like other Younique mascara reviews I’m here to let you know you have to get you hands on this stuff.
Younique’s Fiber Mascara is hands down one of their most popular products. It’s popularity is due to the fact that it gives you a look similar to false eyelashes without the fuss and the mess.
So how does Younique mascara give you 3d lashes? Younique mascara comes in a set with two tubes. One tube contains a transplanting gel, which looks and applies much like any regular mascara; and the other tube contains the all natural fibers.
There are many Younique mascara reviews and video tutorials which are helpful in helping you learn how to apply Younique mascara. Basically when you are applying the 3D fiber lash mascara you are going to start with the transplanting gel and apply it all over your lashes just as you would your regular mascara.
Right after that, before your gel dries, you are going to apply the fibers, slowly layering them over the gel. Then you apply another layer of the transplanting gel over the fibers to seal them to your lashes. This last step is very important. If you do not put enough of the transplanting gel on after you apply the fibers, the fiber will fall off of your lashes onto your face.
Now some fiber may fall onto your cheeks during application. This is easily taken care of by just using a fluffy powder brush and just lightly use it to brush away those fibers. Now you might be thinking… ok great but how does that give you 3D lashes?
Well here’s how… the fibers are buildable. What you are going to do is just repeat the application steps until you get the desired length and look. Sounds simple enough, although watching Younique mascara reviews are always helpful. Check out the tutorial above.
Younique Foundation Reviews
Hang on tight, because as our Younique mascara reviews only went over one product, there are four different Younique foundation reviews to cover.
BB Flawless Complexion Enhancer
It is perfect for those days that you do not want to put a full face of makeup but at the same time you do not want to go out bare faced, with nothing on at all. Younique foundation BB Cream works on evening out skin tones and hiding some flaws while hydrating and moisturizing your skin all day.
On the days you choose to wear the BB Cream you would not need to wear a moisturizer on your face as you would if you were wearing any other type of foundation. The finish this BB Cream is going to leave on your skin is a wet, dewy look. Some women like that look and some do not. Those who do will usually choose to apply the BB Cream and be done.
Those who are not necessarily a fan of the wet, dewy look will apply the Touch Mineral Powder Foundation over the top of the BB Cream. Doing this will set the BB Cream as well as give you the matte finish you are looking for. This will also give you more coverage which is something Younique makeup is known for.
Touch Mineral Liquid Foundation
The Touch Mineral Liquid Foundation is the latest Younique foundation. This is exactly what it sounds like… a liquid foundation. It is one of the top sellers in Younique makeup line for good reason.
The application for Younique foundation will be much like the foundation you are currently using, however, there are a few differences. One is the obvious and that is the fact that the Touch Mineral Liquid Foundation is chemical free just as any youniqueproducts are.
Another difference you will see is the amount of the product you use. When using the Touch Mineral Liquid Foundation you will see that you need considerably less than any other brand of liquid foundation you use.
This is such a plus when it comes to the money you are spending. This foundation is going to last longer since you are not needing to use as much with each application. The bottle it comes in comes with a dropper. What most ladies will do is take the dropper and squeeze 5 small drops onto their foundation brush, dot the drops evenly on the face and then go back and blend into their skin using small, soft, circular motions.
The other significant difference you will see is with the Touch Mineral Liquid Foundation is it is a liquid that dries to a powder, matte finish. This Younique foundation gives you great coverage and it smells amazing which is a nice bonus.
Touch Mineral Powder Foundation
The Touch Mineral Powder Foundation is basically a pressed powder however the coverage that this stuff provides is unlike any other pressed powder I have ever used.
It makes complete sense why I have heard this be referred to as photoshop in a compact. This Touch Mineral Powder Foundation is also a great option on those days you are not wanting to spend a bunch of time on your makeup or maybe on those mornings you are simply running late… we have all been there.
Just dabbing on a little concealer under your eyes and dusting some Touch Mineral Powder Foundation will still give you pretty amazing coverage and only takes seconds! Another plus to this powder is that, just like any other Younique product, a little goes a long way.
Touch Mineral Cream Foundation
The last item considered to be a foundation is the Touch Mineral Cream Foundation.
This foundation comes in a compact just as the pressed powder does and is a thick, creamy texture.
All that is necessary for application is to pop the lid open and use a flat foundation brush or the pad that comes with the compact, grab some of the cream and spread it evenly all over your face. Because this Touch Mineral Cream Foundation is thick and creamy, it is definitely going to leave you with a wet, dewy look much like the BB Cream.
Again, if you rather a matte finish, you can follow this up with the pressed powder. The Cream Foundation alone is going to be a full coverage and adding the pressed powder over the top will add a little more coverage as well as give you that matte finish. Check out the video tutorials above to see each of these younique foundation reviews in depth.
Other Younique Makeup Reviews
While we will be adding more Younique reviews over the next several weeks, we decided to add these short Younique reviews on other popular younique products.
Besides the very popular Younique mascara and foundation, here are some of the other products you may want to consider consider.
Younique Rose Water
First of all, this stuff smells amazing… like roses, hence the name Rose Water! It is also going to hydrate your skin as well as eliminate redness and oil.
After cleansing your face you are just going to spritz this a couple of times and let it dry before applying your moisturizer, primer and the rest of your makeup. Who doesn’t want to start off their makeup routine feeling extra clean and refreshed?!
Glorious Face and Eye Primer
The Glorious Face and Eye Primer should be a staple in anyone’s makeup collection. This stuff is unlike any other makeup primer I have ever used. It feels like silk on your skin yet is incredibly light feeling.
It leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth to the touch while filling in your pores, fine lines and wrinkles. Applying a makeup primer is an important step to never leave out if you want your makeup to last all day.
So I don’t know about you but I love concealer. Nothing works better to cover up my dark under eye circles and blemishes.
When it comes to Younique concealer you have two options: The Moodstruck Mineral Concealer, which is a powder that comes in six different shades and The Touch Mineral Skin Perfecting Concealer, which is a cream that comes in 10 different shades.
The Touch Mineral Skin Perfecting Concealer is Younique’s latest concealer and has been compared to the MAC concealers in terms of coverage, even being used to cover tattoos like MAC does… only better given the fact that it is free of all the chemicals MAC makeup contains. When using this product you are going to want to use the tiniest bit. It is pretty incredible how little product is needed in order to cover up those flaws!
Younique Eye Pigments
Moodstruck Minerals Pigment Powders come in 34 colors and add a beautiful, colorful shimmer to your eyelids. Another use I have found for these Younique pigments is to use them as an illuminator.
Using either one of the shades Sexy or Angelic, apply this to your upper cheekbones and down the bridge of your nose making those area really pop.
Younique’s Beachfront Bronzer comes in three different shades: Sunset, Malibu and Hermosa, so kind of a light, medium and dark. The Beachfront Bronzer comes in a compact style packaging and is divided in two sides.
One side is a lighter, shimmery bronzer and the other side is a couple of shades darker with a lot let shimmer to it. This bronzer works great for those who like to add a little color and shimmer all over or for those who like to use it for a nice contour.
Either way, this Younique Bronzer is a great addition to anyone’s makeup collection.
Younique Lip Gloss
Younique’s Lucrative Lip Gloss comes in ten beautiful shades. They even offer a clear gloss for those of you who aren’t really looking to add any color to your lips but just some nourishment and shine.
Younique Lip Gloss looks amazing by itself or over any of their lipstick shades to add some shine. The tubes that this lip gloss even comes with a handy little mirror on one of the sides for your convenience.
Younique’s Moodstruck Opulence Lipstick comes in ten gorgeous shades ranging from light to dark. These are unbelievably soft and creamy and feel amazing on your lips. Throw on some lip liner and apply on the Younique lipstick of your choice and your lips will be set to go.
Younique Lip Stain
Younique’s Stiff Upper Lip Stain is pretty amazing stuff! I know I love lipstick but what I don’t love about it is the fact that it comes off on anything my lips touch and sometimes doesn’t seem to last long, leaving me having to reapply often.
Younique Lip Stain solves those problems. The lip stain it goes on wet and needs to be given a minute or so to dry. Once it is dry if you are liking the color you can leave it or if you’d like it to be darker you can apply another layer.
You want to be careful when applying. Since it is a stain if you get outside of your lips you’re going to have a mess. This comes in seven great shades and once applied will stay on for hours and will not come off when kissing, eating or drinking.
