Hi there friends, today I want to share with you Moonstruck 3D Fiber Lashes! I was so excited when I came across, quite by accident, someone talking about Fiber Lashes online. Until then I had never heard of fiber lashes. I read through the comments just to test the waters and see what others were saying and as I continued then to read the comments, I was fortunate enough to find someone looking for a blog review of another brand of fiber lashes! I figured that I was just that blogger that she was looking for, and took a chance looking her up and then writing her an email. And the rest, as they say, is history!

(added May 31)- At the end of this post there will be a special freebie with order, continue reading to learn more.

Now, I may have never heard of Fiber Lashes before, but that doesn’t mean that I haven’t stumbled upon them from time to time, unknowingly. As a matter of fact about a month ago my husband took me to our favorite burger place and the lady behind the counter had the most lovely long lashes! The length of these lashes were unreal! I spoke up, I couldn’t help myself, “wow, did you have lash extensions done?” “No,” she replied. “Wow, your lashes, you are so lucky” I said. Yet staring at her lashes (with a skeptical eye and that of a Cosmetologist) not only were her lashes longer than long, but some of the “lashes” looked slightly off, so I was sure she’d done something. But I wasn’t sure what she’d done to get such a beautiful look. I really have to tell you that, at first glance, the lashes were very impressive indeed and I at first thought she had extensions or some marvelously naturally scattered lengths of, a never seen before, false strip lashes on.

I really respect that she has a filter for such things, and didn’t tell me what her magic trick was for those glorious lashes. I, on the other hand, lack that filter and, now that I have figured out her trick, I am not afraid of telling anyone that I am using fiber lashes! Guess that’s why blogging reviews works so well for me, I love to share! lol

after and before from youinque fiberlash product pgSo once again we are in Lash Territory, lets go over a few tid bits that I mentioned in a recent post:

My Mother used to brag to people about how long my lashes were. However my eyes have always been hooded (dare I say it seems to get worse with age?). No matter how long my lashes are, I never felt happy with their length as the hooded eyelids hid them a lot.

In the past I tried false eye lashes, the strip lashes and the little groups of individual lashes that are supposed to stay on for weeks. The strip lashes, being applied to my oily eyelids (right next to my lashes) never stayed on well… and the little groups of eyelashes that come with a special adhesive that is to sort of glue the little groups right onto the eyelashes were both hard to put on and when they were on, these hooded eye lids of mine got so irritated from the adhesive scraping at the lids, that I took those puppies off as soon as I could with my eye cream.

Others could have problems with the Lash lengthening options above:

From the lashes being made of certain materials that can harbor bacteria especially any of the non natural lashes like the poly-nylon blend lashes (from something I read a while back) there are spaces within the fibers that hold in moisture and can grow harmful bacteria. The glues too can cause allergic reactions, some are not ment for on the skin, true enough, but consider the hooded eyelids out there that do touch, even the cured glues… allergies can run from rashes to loss of eyelashes.

Speaking of loss of eyelashes, there is a strain on the natural lashes that you have when your own lashes get to their optimal length, add on even the tiniest amount of glue and some extensions and you do run the risk of starting to lose your own lashes as well…did you know that it takes about 7 to 8 weeks for your lashes to grow back. And if you do have extensions, it is also extremely expensive to keep up monthly.

Along came my email from Christen, a Younique Presenter (see her page), and sure enough she was still interested in having a review of this product! Yay… I waited just a little while for the mail to arrive and found that they took no time at all to arrive. I was so excited that had to open the envelope right away, after admiring the cute hardcover case and looking inside the case at my newest product to test, I read the documentation that came with it.

Moonstruck 3D Fiber Lashes, I learned, that the fibers are made from 100% Natural Green Tea Fibers! Pretty Cool!

I decided to do a test and use regular mascara on one eye and the Moonstruck 3D Fiber lashes on the other eye… I decided that I would walk around like a freak for the day with just one set of eyelashes with the product on it.

Mariah eyes closeup 3d fiber lashesI experienced rain that day and walked around with it on that one eye, I also did sweat that day (oh wait we women don’t sweat we glow!) and still no sign of the 3d lashes coming off or the dark mascara like coating coming off giving me raccoon eyes. And my regular mascara was causing a bit of a bad look though by the end of that hot, then rainy day… I had mascara above and below that eye while the 3D Fiber Lashes still remained looking gorgeous and fresh.

How simple are the 3D Fiber Lashes to put on?

Very simple, it’s like putting on mascara, just a quick 4 coats in all:

Moonstruck 3D Lashes see those wonderful natural fibers1st Apply your regular mascara

2nd Apply the Transplanting Gel on the lashes

3rd Apply the fibers onto the lashes, doing this before the Transplanting Gel has a chance to dry.

(this is where I recommend that you use  your lash brush, on these Fiber Lashes)

4th Apply the Transplanting Gel to the lashes to seal the fibers onto your lashes.

5th, sigh as you look in the mirror and realize how lovely your lashes look, long and up to 300 times thicker and longer lashes.

Feel free to use your lash comb at any point in this application if you wish… it’s all good. Just remember if you are going to curl, curl those peepers before step 1 and that’s it! 🙂

Now you can go out, flutter your eyelashes and enjoy, with no worries at all, all day and all evening long.

__________

When it comes to removing the fiber lashes, I used just my facial cleanser, but I’ve found that I prefer to take them off first with soap and water then follow up with my cream facial cleanser as I use it on my whole face. *When working cleanser (or anything into the eye area remember to use light touches and your “facial fingers” (the middle finger and the finger next to your pinky).

After removing my fiber lashes, from Younique, I have found that my lashes feel softer than soft. The ingredients in the Moonstruck 3D Fiber Lashes seem to have helped the condition of my eyelashes as well, time will tell as I use it over time.

The fibers scared me one day when I went to put them on and some of the fibers fell into the sink, I wasn’t sure what sort of fuzzy insect it was, then I realized what I was seeing. I picked them up and felt them, they feel like silk! Again these are made of 100% Green Tea Fibers, who would have thought they would be so delicate, fine and soft? And even with the transplanting gel sealing the tops of these lashes, I didn’t feel that stiffness that I feel with mascara.

I do admit that I need a better, wider toothed lash brush (if they exist). The typical lash brushes never get between my lashes, just like this head of hair of mine (I’ve been told it’s so much that it should be on at least 2 people) my lashes grow thick (though they are super fine). Your results, will most likely be different than mine, but me? I am just as pleased at having my lashes super-thick and extended out. Hey and I can tell you that my husband seems to love them, and the things that I can say now with my eyes in these fiber lashes are magnified… “flutter flutter”. Lol

mariah in full makeup with 3d fiber lashes
Hubby captured a picture of me with my Fiber Lashes on and full makeup… he said he’d take me out to dinner. Awe shucks, it never happened, but I did go around and show my neighbors the look! They seem to all want this 3D Fiber Lashes for themselves now. 🙂

Easy Peesy! I love these fiber lashes so much that I want the whole world to know about them. I even want to do a show and tell for my beautiful Asian Dentist, who pays to have her lashes done (and once said to me said “OMG, you have Asian Eyes,”)… who knows, perhaps she would love the Moonstruck 3D Fiber Lashes too. And I just know that anyone would feel great about saving a ton of money!

Don’t be fooled folks by product names, I’ve seen a few big companies say “Fiber” in their mascaras, this is NOT (I repeat) NOT the same! These cheap brands I’ve seen are one step mascara. They are not what you would expect and the fibers, if they are in there would be all mashed up together and only serve the purpose to thicken lashes and coat them with mascara. This is a two step process, and when you find some with two step processes (As I’ve seen since discovering these wonderful fiber lashes) these from Younique are the only ones that I’ve seen the fibers to be all natural. And the only ones that I’ve seen out there that look like they may work are almost double this price, yet I didn’t see them freely sharing their ingredients… I would almost bet that they are not natural fiber for those fiber lashes either!

I wish to thank Christen for allowing me the honor and great experience with the Moonstuck 3D Fiber Lashes, as you know I am so very in LOVE with them, they are a great addition to my beauty arsenal! I would love it, if someday Younique would make these in a brown or better yet an Auburn so it would go more with an every day look for folks like me (Gingers) or those with lighter colored hair… but I must admit, I’ve been using this for my every day look and I am loving it, even bare faced! 🙂

Now is you chance to try Younique’s Moonstruck 3D Fiber Lashes for yourself or give it to a loved one please, just give it to that person as a “Happy Happy” (my Father’s saying, basically meaning “a gift just because”) because they’d never forgive you for holding out on giving them this great prize!

Avoiding Sun Exposure – Sunny Sleevez Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Avoiding Sun Exposure is at utmost importance for all of us.

UV Rays and your skinI just that I cringe at sunbathers and those that go to those nasty sunbeds to get that golden glow. I was one of you once, really I was… and I have to say that correcting what you’ve done to yourself can be difficult and sometimes not only can the damage done be irreversible but it can be life threatening as well.

With the risk of skin cancer we all should be very cautious with the sun. Long gone SHOULD be the days of sunbathing to get that golden sun-kissed glow. The natural appearance of the paler skin should be the desired look! I must say that, to me, this look is a sign of someone who cares for themselves and their skin… maybe it’s because I am a Former Cosmetologist and know the effects of the sun on the skin, but I really do believe that if you love yourself, you should love the skin that you are in!

As some of you know I suffer from Lupus SLE and as a result of this Autoimmune Arthritic illness, I need to be cautious with the sun. Cloudy days, rainy days, snowy days, I am stuck wearing sunscreen on all exposed areas… yes even indoors now, as the new CFL bulbs expose you to UV rays now and soon those of us that are sensitive will be in sunscreen forever as the government bans the incandescent bulbs.

To top it off I am a pale skinned person, living in an area that is over a mile high, and 20 minutes of sun exposure can create quite a burn and/or make me feel very sick. What is a person to do?

Lets, face it, I feel trapped in the sticky goop of sunscreen a lot and I don’t like applying and paying constantly for this heavy feeling permanent coating on my skin all day and all night long. I wear this goop on my skin from when I wake up to just before going to bed at night. And I admit I get lazy at applying it at times, either not bothering to apply it to my skin at all or not carefully catching the ears, back of my neck or just inside the hems of sleeves.

Along came my invite to test out the Sunny Sleevez.

sunny sleevez plus pkg hangtagPLEASE NOTE: There is a Memorial Weekend Sale going on at Sunny Sleevez through Monday May 26th, 2014 Use the Code SUMMER and get 20% off your order!

Before I received my Sunny Sleevez, I was impressed that Sunny Sleevez have a UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) of 50+ which blocks 99% of the suns rays, that is so very much better than a white cotton t-shirt that only have a UPF of 10 to 15! And Celebrities have reportedly been enjoying their own Sunny Sleevez, for instance they are a favorite of Anne Hathaway, Natalie Portman & Colin Firth!

The sleeves come in sizes from petite to large and they come with hand cover or no hand cover, I chose the hand cover in a size medium. I also chose the pink sleevez with the purple ribbon on them. They are so pretty!

sunny sleevez on armI have to say that I used these beautiful sleeves first while outside picking up “doggie presents” (dog poop) and the sleeves where such an enormous break from sunscreen on my arms. I went without sunscreen on my arms and only applied sunscreen to feet, ankles, fingers and my face. The rest of me was covered and I was surprised that I felt cool in the hot sun here while wearing them.

When I was done cleaning up after the dogs, I felt it was time to clean them for the first time… the instructions on washing & drying them are quite simple. Wash in the machine with cold water and line dry. The air drying time on the sleeves took less time than I expected and that was nice to know since they dried well overnight, which let me put them on right away the next morning.

sunny sleeves closeup handcoverSunny sleeves do come in many designs and colors, mine are a beautiful pink with a purple ribbon on it, which is the ribbon for Lupus SLE as well as Fibromyalgia (which I have both), so this design was the obvious choice for me.

The sleeves fit very nicely, they felt a little snug at first, but I quickly adjusted to them, they didn’t slip down and in seconds I didn’t even feel like I was wearing them. Occasionally I would look at these bright pink sleeves with the purple ribbon on them and I found myself smiling, hey I may have illnesses but the illnesses don’t have me! 🙂

And I cannot forget to mention the convenience of using you Sunny Sleevez, compared to sunscreen,  I don’t have to wait 20 minutes for the sun protection to occur, I just put them on and go. Also, and I don’t have to keep re-applying the product to my skin. The Sunny Sleevez are just an easy on and off and this will help to bring down my bill for sunscreen.

In Conclusion:

I love my Sunny Sleeves and recommend them for everyone, you know that I often say “use your sunscreen” to you all in many of my beauty related posts… well don’t forget that the aging from the sun will happen to your arms and hands too. The quickest way to tell someones age is to look at those hands & arms folks and taking good care of your skin would hinder that age check.  Check out Sunny Sleevez and when you buy yourself a pair, you too will want another pair, so you are never without while you wash one, you will have another to wear!

What would I change with Sunny Sleevez? Only one thing, I would ask that they make some a wee bit shorter for shorties like me that have short arms but heavy arms.

Looking around their site, I know that I also must invest, someday in their shrugs and I wish, oh I wish they had cute sun-hats for Adult Women, their baby sun hat is so adorable!!! I want one, smaller flower and bigger brim… lets make it look Victorian, shall we? Lol And I may be back soon as I can to order their Butterfly Tattoo Sleeve in white, I love that style too!

OH and a wishlist! They have a wishlist and I am putting almost everything they have on my wishlist there… if any of you are feeling generous, take a look and send me something off the list, would you please? Hey and I could review those products too! lol Can you blame a girl for asking?

I recommend that you check out their site and be sure to put items on your wishlist and let people know that you have a wishlist there when they are buying you gifts! And what a great gift any of these items would be for your friends and family, not only a stylish gift but a gift that really does show you care! 🙂

I have to thank the people at Sunny Sleevez for freeing up my arms from sticky goopy heavy feeling sunscreen and letting me see how in love one could be with their Sunny Sleevez. Thank you too for being so wonderfully patient with me as life took a toll on me and my blogging for a time. Thank you so much for understanding, you’re Awesome Sunny Sleevez! 🙂

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
