The Best Mascara?

STOP! Please read...

* Disclaimer - Please don’t prejudge this post before you’ve read it - it’s an honest review and something that I really love and wanted to share here on my blog. I bought this product with my own money just like I would have any other mascara *

Now, I bet you scrolled down to see what I was talking about, didn’t you?! Are you surprised? Are you still reading? Thank you if you are! You’ll be really shocked to see the results and my thoughts on this mascara...


So, as some of you may know, I run my own Younique Business called ‘Beyond you Beauty’ and if some of you haven’t heard, Younique is an American Makeup Brand that use reps to sell their products. I’m not one of these in-your-face kind of sellers though as this is probably only the 2nd or 3rd time I’ve actually put a product on my blog. That’s not because I don’t love them, it’s because I know people are judgemental and skeptical about whether it’s an honest review or I’m just trying to get sales! I can tell you now, I don’t sell anything I don’t like myself. 

Back in July, Younique released a revolutionary new product, the Epic Mascara. Unlike their well-known 3D Fibrelash Mascara, Epic is a one step, ‘regular’ mascara in which it is quick to use and great for everyone! Not everyone likes the fibrelash mascara, I’m not a huge fan of it myself but this is like your average tube of mascara HOWEVER, it is probably one of the best mascaras I have ever tried. Seriously. 

The wand is kind of fluffy however the bristles are separate enough to comb through your lashes and make them super long and thick. It’s completely build able too and doesn’t clump at all. The brush also has a thin, tapered tip so that if you’re like me, you can get the tiny, hard to reach lashes in the corner of your eyes and every lash gets coated! The amount of product that comes out on the brush is perfect and best of all, it doesn’t give you panda eyes!! It’s not claimed to be waterproof however, it is water resistant meaning you don’t have to worry about it running if you get caught in the rain or start crying through a film or chopping onions (I’ve tested the onion chopping!)

To get the most out of this mascara, I find curling my lashes before helps to give them more of a lift however, the below pictures show a before / after of just the mascara, no curling beforehand. 

I have tried so many other mascaras; Urban Decay, Lancome, MAC, Soap and Glory, No7 etc etc and I can probably say that the only other mascara I would use if I ran out of this was Benefit Rollerlash, other than that, I will be repurchasing this over and over. I actually already have a backup incase I run out and have to wait to place another order! 

You can see the effects of the mascara from a quick use, the way it thickens and separates lashes without leaving clumps - it really is my favourite product Younique have ever released. And it’s not too expensive either - just £19 (other high end mascaras are way more expensive and I find this is much better). 

If you’d like to know how you can get your hands on this, take a look at my Facebook page, drop me a message on Twitter or pop over to my website where you can order direct to your door!
