Younique Makeup Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+ has the potential to increase lash volume up to 400 percent (key word “potential”). According to the company website, this figure was derived by averaging results observed in independent laboratory testing (384.5 percent increase after one application; more than 2000 percent after three applications). This was compared against bare lashes. It is not known how many people participated in the study or what percentage of users experienced these results. I certainly didn’t and I don’t know anyone who has except those who sell the product. However, the lashes are highly popular among makeup enthusiasts and a top selling product by the brand.

How is Younique Makeup Moodstruck Mascara different from other mascaras?
How do I like my lashes?
What was my experience using the Younique Makeup Moodstruck Mascara?
Many Younique Presenters (sales people) have recommended the Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+ in lieu of false lashes. After five attempts using the product and applying it using different techniques from product experts, I could not achieve an increase in volume anywhere close to 400 percent. I would describe the length increase as 100 percent (doubled my lash length) and the volume increase was less than 50 percent. When attempting to build more volume and length, the appearance of the lashes became straggly and clumpy.
Many pictures on social media with users of the original 3D product appeared extremely clumpy to me. The new formula was still clumpy if fibers were heavily applied. When applied sparingly and using a buildable method, the product was not as clumpy as the original formula. I did struggle with the fibers falling out during application but this was lessened with a very light application of the fibers. Any excess fibers on the wand may drop onto your skin if you are not cautious. Fibers may also fall out during wear if not thoroughly sealed wit the gel. Achieving a proper application takes time and attention to detail.
I thought the gel product was like a typical mascara and it had a pretty effect on my natural lashes. While it didn’t perform like some of the popular luxury brands on the market I have used, it does achieve additional length and separates lashes. The gel left my lashes looking delicate, intensely black, and shiny. I thought the gel was a good mascara product on it’s own. The length achieved was better than average but I did notice the length shrunk after several hours of wear. When I added the fibers, the delicate and feminine lashes appeared thick and straggly. Numerous applications of the fibers using different techniques continued to produce an unkempt look which is a style that I don’t prefer. I did appreciate the elongated lashes produced by the gel on it’s own and it was very easy to remove. Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+
Younique Makeup Review – Moodstruck Mascara Conclusion
Makeup is highly personal and brands offer a lot of options for that reason. We all begin with a different canvas and create something unique. What works for one person may not work for another. My expectation and taste in lashes may be different than yours. However, if what I describe as my style and expectations are similar to yours, Younique’s Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+ may not be for you. I have not liked the way the product appears in many photos. Yet, the women who posted those photos likely did so because they did like the results. If you decide to try the product, I’d suggest practicing different application techniques.
I would continue to experiment using the gel product alone and combining it with other mascaras. It may help to prevent flaking, extend wear time or performance, and shine when layered with other products. However, I would not continue to utilize the fibers and don’t believe the fibers produce a beautiful and feminine effect on the lashes. In my opinion, both the gel and fibers are formulated with effective ingredients. Younique is a charitable company seeking to make a difference in people’s lives. They offer a wide array of products and I suspect other products within their line would meet my expectations.
