Be Beautiful, Be Younique, Be You: Younique by Keisha Hilliard #Review + #Giveaway

Thank you to Keisha Hilliard for providing me with product, free of charge, in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions shared are my own.

Some days, I don't feel like myself. I am worn out, sleep deprived, and stressed. I'm a work at home mom, and although it would be really easy to fall into the trap of living in yoga pants and rocking messy hair, I try my best to dress and ready myself for the day as if I have places to go and people to see. Most of my days are spent with Baby S, and working at odd hours, not to mention school pick up and the general day to day home responsibilities. I need my makeup routine to be quick and easy to manage. I also need my beauty products to work for me, as I don't have time to fix or reapply through out the day.

Presented by MBP Spotlight Sponsor, Keisha Hilliard

I connected with Keisha Hilliard a few weeks ago, through my cousin. Keisha is an Independent Distributor for Younique. Keisha is a busy wife and mom, and loves to help women look and feel their best by using Younique products.


I'm a busy mommy of three, two boys and my dice roll for the girl. I had to have a girl because I am a lover of all things girlie! Accessories, shoe, best girlfriends, and MAKE UP! My greatest make up search has been a mascara to give my short, bone straight lashes life and I found it. I couldn't wait to share the excitement every woman who has been searching for the glamorous look of falsies without the sticky hassle! Then I discovered all the other gems Younique has to offer in pigments and other product. Bonus- the Mother Nature-animal lover is enraptured with the fact that it's all natural and cruelty free.

Younique's cosmetics development processes utilize scientific research to ensure that our products contain high quality ingredients that enrich and nourish the skin. The result is a beautifully efficacious product that is safely compatible with virtually every skin type.
Younique begins by looking to Mother Nature for the inspiration behind our cosmetics. Our in-house scientific team then formulates a product that honors that inspiration while delivering cutting-edge cosmetics. Our goal is to provide healthy, clean, and pure cosmetics.

Keisha sent me a fabulous package of goodies from Younique!

After chatting a bit with Keisha about my skin type, and some of my problem areas, she recommended some wonderful products for me to try out. I have been wanting to try out Younique's products for quite some time, so this was very exciting for me. 

We used this handy chart to determine the best color match for my skin tone.

My Younique products were nicely packaged, and arrived wrapped up in purple tissue paper. I felt like I was opening up a special present!


My product lineup from Younique- Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes, Moodstruck Precision Pencil, and Mineral Touch Skin Perfecting Concealer.

Keisha helped me select the products she thought I would really love. My eyes are sort of starting to be a problem area for me. I have been getting so little sleep lately, that I really felt that I needed to start using a good concealer again. I was really eager to try the Mineral Touch Concealer, because dark circles run in my family, and the older I get, the more noticeable they become.

I used just a tiny dab of the concealer under each eye, taking care to blend it well. It really matches my skin tone well, and looks completely natural. I immediately noticed that my eyes looked brighter and less tired looking after applying the concealer. I followed up with my mineral foundation, and that was it. It took less than a minute for me to apply this makeup. It's an extra step in my daily routine, but I love the results.

Keisha also sent me the wonderful Moodstruck Precision Pencil. Eyeliner is one of those things that I don't like to leave home without having put on my face. We selected a brown shade for me, as I usually tend to go with browns, and sometimes with a hint of purple, since my eyes are green. I don't have the best luck with application. A lot of times the pencils I use are so thin and so sharp, that I feel like I am having to put a lot of pressure on my eyelid to apply the pencil. The Moodstruck Pencil is fabulous! It glides on so smoothly, and with ease! I lined my eyes in a matter of a few seconds, and loved the results! What's more is that the eyeliner didn't budge or smudge all day! It's waterproof and smudge-proof, which is awesome, because my eyes tend to water due to allergies.

There are lots of great colors to choose from, and I definitely want to add some others to my make up counter!

Perhaps the most exciting product for me, is the 3D Fiber Lash Kit. I have heard a lot about fiber lashes, but have never mustered up the guts to try them out. This is a beautiful kit, which offers a hypoallergenic formula, and can increase the average lash volume by up to 400%! I won't lie, I was skeptical, but still excited to try the product out.

Using the 3D Fiber Lashes was so easy! I was concerned that it would add a lot of time to my beauty routine, but I was surprised to find that it did not. This product made my lashes look so long and full! My self-esteem has been sort of low since having Baby S, with added baby weight and my hair falling out. These awesome products from Younique truly made me look and feel 100x better!

To achieve the ultimate lashes-
Three simple steps to long, sexy lashes:
Apply an even coat of Transplanting Gel to lashes.
Immediately apply 3D Fibers while Transplanting Gel is wet.
Seal the fibers with Transplanting Gel.
Repeat until you've reached desired fullness.


Increase your average lash volume by up to 400%!*

Listen up, fiber lash lovers. We have improved our wildly popular 3D Fiber lash enhancer to make it better than before.

Introducing, Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+!

With a new brush and a fresh look, our proprietary, hypoallergenic formula brings life to tired lashes. Its two international patents pending leaves little wonder about why women are talking about which lash enhancer they use.

*Averaged results observed in independent laboratory testing—384.5% increase after one application; greater than 2,000% after three applications when compared against bare lashes.
