HEARD OF YOUNIQUE?
If you're into beauty and keep up even slightly with the up-and-coming brands, then you've probably heard of Younique. This cool brand was started up by a brother-and-sister team in 2012, so they are fairly new to the scene, but they've done a decent job of getting their name out there and taking a different approach.
Their main goal is to empower and uplift women around the world with their presenter program. The program gives you the option to immediately start selling their products through an e-commerce store, with provided training materials. Form the info on their site, Younique is giving the option to get started for $99 and begin hosting "virtual parties" that allow for you to invite people through social media sharing. If a virtual party isn't your thing, then you can go for the traditional home party :)
What I like about Younique is that they make quality beauty products that you can enjoy and share with other beauty lovers in your life- plus you make some extra cash as well. At this point in time, with all that I have on my plate- I'm not willing to quite dive into the program just yet. I did however, want to see what their products were all about! I've broken this post up into 2 parts and I will be reviewing 5 total products between today and tomorrow- make sure to check them out!
I have super fair skin so this was a risk, but I have to say that the color turned out beautifully for being such a bright red. When it comes to shades that pop, it's usually something that either works well for me or ends up looking "clownish". Since this product is well-pigmented and made with a petroleum-based wax, it goes on smoothly and doesn't look chalky.
Younique's Moodstruck Opulence Lipstick will leave your lips looking and feeling smooth and soft, packed full of good-for-you ingredients like: Mango Seed Butter, Shea Butter, and antioxidants [Tocopheryl Acetate].
Overall, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I ended up loving the color and quality of of this lipstick from Younique! If brighter shades or red isn't your thing, there are 14 other great colors to choose from :)
When it comes to pressed powder blushes, I'm often cautious. These sometimes don't work well for me as they can end up causing me to break out. They are also tougher to blend and don't always look natural- it really depends on the quality, fineness, and pigmentation.
Thankfully, Younique has created a mineral pressed blush that has all of those qualities and comes in an option of 5 shades. This "Sweet" shade is a good color for most skin types and is super flattering. I love the natural look this blush gives me and I love that it doesn't look or feel powdery or dry.
Although the range of shades offered do seem a bit on the bright side, they are perfectly-tinted and blend easily. I can't wait to give the other shades a try :) Powered with soybean oil, this product won't cause you to break out and is great for those with sensitive skin too.
