Introducing Younique

So today I want to try something I've not done before; a brand focus. I have been using Younique products since January and thought it about time to share the love on the blog. 

Younique products are all cruelty-free, naturally based and free from parabens or any harsh chemicals.

There are a selection vegan friendly and gluten free products so something for everyone and the quality is fantastic! 

Younique's mission is to uplift, empower, validate and ultimately build self-esteem in women around around the world through high quality products that encourage both inner and outer beauty and spiritual enlightenment while also providing opportunities for personal growth and financial reward. 

My top three products without a doubt are the precision pencils, touch cream foundation and fibre lash mascara. Here's why:

Precision Pencils. There are fifteen colours all together; 5 lip liners and 10 eye liners. The pigmentation is amazing, they are unbelievably creamy and so go on like a dream and they are completely smudge proof. Need I say any more? I have 8 in total and rave about them to anyone that will listen. The sharpener (purchased separately) also sharpens them to a round tip rather than a point which is much gentler on the skin. 

Touch Mineral Cream Foundation. This foundation is a delight. I use the shade Organza which is the second lightest colour and it's a great match for my skin. The most amazing thing about it though is the coverage - it's fantastic but doesn't look cakey at all. The packaging comes with a sponge separated from the product with a clear plastic lid which I enjoy and there is also a decent sized mirror. Perfect for throwing in your handbag! While it does come with a sponge and Younique do make a foundation brush I find this applies better with a buffing brush from Real Techniques or Bare Minerals. 

3D Fibre Lash Mascara. I'll admit I was dubious before I tried this - will it work? will I hate it? Will it be messy?  Clumpy?  Fibres all down my face? Irritate my eyes? The answer to all of these questions (except 'will it work?) was of course, no! The transplanting gel and green tea fibres are so easy to use and actually do look great. I personally think some people can go a bit OTT with it but I find it the perfect replacement for falsies and the ingredients nourish my lashes - fab.

And so that was a brief introduction to Younique!
