Reviewing Younique Moodstruck Epic Mascara

Moodstruck Epic mascara review.
What is a mature woman who has never worn full make-up on a regular basis doing reviewing make-up? I have found a mascara that I'm super excited about, that's why. I splurged on Younique's Moodstruck Epic Mascara and like it so much that it will be my daily "eyes".  If you like to have good lashes, I think you'll like this mascara too.

I LOVE this stuff. I rarely wear make-up with the exception of mascara. Mascara is a necessity. I try really hard to never leave the house without mascara. I even wear mascara when camping at The Shack.

My eyelashes are puny and nearly invisible. But I hate spending money, so I nearly always buy the cheap stuff in the health and beauty aisle at Target or Walmart. Occasionally, I have purchased more expensive brands - but they flaked, smeared, or ran. So I stuck with the popular but cheap brand.

Last week I splurged and bought Moodstruck Epic Mascara and WOW!  My lashes suddenly looked like those ladies at work who have really good lashes. I thought they all went to the salon to have such great lashes but with Moodstruck Epic my lashes are now pretty great too. My lashes were suddenly long and thick; with individual lashes visible. My lashes were visible! 

What I like about this mascara is:

  • The brush actually brushes my lashes. I can feel it "combing" them. Not just passing across them.
  • It coats the lashes separately. 
  • The mascara hasn't smudged or ran all over my face yet. 
  • It takes no more time or work to apply than my cheap mascara
  • The difference in quality was noticeable immediately
  • It is very thick, but not clumpy.
  • It is more expensive (I don't like spending extra money) but I realized that I was spending money on mascara that really wasn't doing much at all - in the long run, this brand may not be much more expensive after all.

Here is my attempt to show you the vast difference in my lashes with no mascara, my box store mascara, and my amazing lashes with the Moodstruck Epic mascara.

If you are only looking for information about the mascara, you can skip straight to shop for the mascara here. The rest of my review will be a brief bit about the company and my wonderful presenter, Liz. 

note: I hate photo comparisons that are "staged" or use different lighting to make the product look better.  I did my best to use the same angle, distance, and lighting to give a real comparison. But as a person who doesn't take selfies, this was the closest I could get. And yes, I really did apply the mascara on the left. The way I normally do. And the way that I had mistakenly thought helped my eyes look better. 


More About Younique


I want to tell you a bit about the company and about Liz. I am a supporter of women and their home businesses. I'm on a tight budget so I can't always support these businesses as much as I would like. But in this instance, the company, my presenter, and the product make it worth the extra couple of bucks.

Younique is a direct sales beauty product company. Their statement on their About Us page is:
Younique's mission is to uplift, empower, validate, and ultimately build self-esteem in women around the world through high-quality products that encourage both inner and outer beauty and spiritual enlightenment while also providing opportunities for personal growth and financial reward 
Women become presenters and show the items they use and love. If  you are my age, you can think Tupperware parties - except with Younique the home parties happen only if you want it to. Most of the sales are "virtual parties" or individual orders (like mine).

Also, unlike home parties from days gone by, customers are able to order online just like they order any other product that is offered online. No commitment to having a party, no high-pressure sales, no having to clean up and plan to have guests (unless you want to - but I don't have the desire to "entertain").  


Meet Liz - My Younique Presenter


Liz is one of the kindest women I know. She also happens to be my grandson's other grandmother so I have gotten to know her a bit over the past few years. I have seen her putting on her face in the mornings and it's clear that she loves her make-up. And watching her, it was easy to see why. Her make-up always looked so good.

Then she very recently started her own business with Younique. Liz (and other Younique) presenters give online demonstrations and tutorials. The very best part of this is being able to watch women of my same age using make-up. I am excited about Liz's new  business adventure and wish her the best of luck.

  1. Dawn Rae, I have the same short, stubby, too-light lashes problem. This mascara sounds like the perfect solution as I've never had much luck with others. Nice that someone you know features the product you find works best for you. Nice that you can support a fellow 'grandmother' too in her home-based business. :)

  2. I've never tried Younique makeup before, but I do know when it comes to makeup, brand matters. I use the mascara I can pick-up at the grocery store too. Perhaps, it is time to consider an upgrade too. I also like the idea of supporting another online entrepreneur.

  3. You make me wish that I did wear mascara. The last time I did was for my son's wedding back in November 2017. I swim everyday now and don't wear anything on my skin or eyes because it would just wash off or make a mess when I am done. I'm lucky that my lashes are dark enough to get by. I do wish your friend all the best with her business and I'm glad she has a product that works well for you!

  4. Thanks for the Younique mascara review. I wondered if it lived up to the hype. Mascara is the only makeup I really hate to skip too. Will have to try this! Those results speak for themselves.

  5. Thanks for this review! I've been looking for a decent mascara. I prefer ones with combs but they're so hard to find, and most clump! I'll add this to my fave product list for sure. Excellent review too.

  6. Nothing makes eyelashes and eyebrows look more invisible than turning gray, like mine are now. I'd love to have them show again. I haven't used any mascara because I'm afraid it will rub off on my glasses. I'm most concerned about my eyebrows, which may as well not even be there. Maybe I should check out Younique.
