Can Younique’s Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes increase the thickness and volume of your lashes by 300%?
Read on to find out.
Product: Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes
According to the Younique packaging I received with my set, the Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes set is a eyelash enhancing duo that provides a 300% increase in thickness and volume to your lashes while still looking completely real and natural. It also states that the Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes are water-resistant, yet easily wash off with warm water and facial cleanser.
The wording on Younique’s website is slightly different. It states you can go for up to three times the wow factor with Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes that are water-resistant, yet wash off easily with Shine Eye Makeup Remover Cloths.

Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes Review:
If there is one beauty product I can’t live without it is mascara. Why? Because everyone looks better with longer, thicker lashes. Even if I wear nothing else, which is very rare, I always wear mascara.
Cosmetic companies are constantly coming out with new products to help us make our lashes look longer, thicker, and fuller. The tricky part is developing a lash product that provides us with the lashes of our dreams, but that doesn’t clump and is easy to remove.
Younique’s Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes have gotten a lot of hype so I decided I had to give them a try.
The premise of this lash product is to layer the gel and fibers until you achieve the desired effect. The difficult part, as you can imagine, is preventing clumps. Younique, recommends using a lash comb to separate lashes and eliminate clumps; however, this becomes more challenging as the gel hardens and as you add additional layers. Nearly every time I used the product I ended up with some clumping and lashes stuck together, which does not make for a very natural look.
I was cautious to never put too many fibers on my lashes at one time; however, as the day went on, I noticed the product would start flaking and there would be black bits below my eyes.
The Younique gel is definitely water-proof, which is evident by the difficultly I had removing it from my lashes. Soap and warm water were not effective even if I washed my face twice. Inevitably, there was always gel and fiber bits stuck to my lashes even with intense rubbing, which I don’t recommend. The rubbing required to remove the product caused some of my natural lashes to fall out. And, that is the last thing I wanted!
I also tried using several different kinds of makeup removers to get the Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes off. The Mary Kay brand seemed to work the best, but still was not able to remove all of the product.
As stated above in the description, the current wording on Younique’s website is different from that on my packaging and states: “Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes are water-resistant, yet wash off easily with Shine Eye Makeup Remover Cloths.” Since I did not purchase the Shine Eye Makeup Remover Cloths, I cannot comment on their effectiveness. If any of you have used the makeup remover cloths, please share your experience with Pretty Proof. I’m very curious to know if they work.
All in all, the Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes did create a very dramatic effect. But, because of the difficultly I had in removing the product and how the removal process caused some of my natural eye lashes to fall out, I would not use this daily. I would limit the use of it to special occasions.
