*These Strips were sent to me for my unbiased review*
Although this is my sister that sent this to me to review she sent it to me knowing I would give my honest review either way, even if she is family. I spend a lot of time researching the best make up so that I don’t buy crap and waste my money. As always I can assure you that this is my unbiased and 100% honest review.
I had ordered the Moonstruck 3D Fiber Lashes I guess about a year ago now through a friend that was having an online party. I am a sucker for mascara and I will try anything that says it gives you longer or fuller lashes. Mine are naturally longer just very blond, I love to make my lashes appear fuller and longer without looking fake so I figured let me try this.
The old formula was very messy to say the least. I also was kind of skeptical when the old instructions stated for me to spend almost $30 to then still have to use my own mascara as the base… uh what?
The old instructions were as follows:
- Use your mascara
- Once dry, apply the Transplanting gel
- While still wet apply the fiber lashes
- Seal in by applying the transplanting gel again
Not too many steps but still a pain in neck. I’m not gonna lie, I am getting a little older so my beauty routine consists of more than it used to.. I now need concealer for under my eyes for the bags and dark circles, more and more red spots or acne spots, pore concealer for the lines and more visible pores. Using my already $20 mascara then a gel then the fiber lashes then the gel once dry was just too much. I never ended up using it every day. It got used a couple of times and then stayed in my drawer. It also didn’t help that the case was enormous and hard to keep in my make up bag
All in all my review of the old process, packaging, and formula is as follows:
-Does make lashes appear longer and fuller
-Time consuming, too many steps
-Messy – I would have fibers fall out on my cheeks while I was applying and later once I blinked throughout the day with them falling off
-Large packaging – not easy to transport with other make up
-Price, too pricey for me to justify if I also have to use my own mascara.
Now, for the NEW formula and NEW packaging!
This packaging as you can tell is much smaller, the bottles are slightly longer however now they come in this nice pouch instead of an almost eye glass case, making it much easier to transport. Let’s see how the new formula matches up..
My first impression already is that I am much more excited to try these, I love the bottles, I love the smaller bag to travel. I especially love that there is a window to see the product and how much is left! Why didn’t other companies think of this!!
The instructions for the new formula are slightly less annoying and less steps
- Apply the transplanting gel
- Apply the fiber lashes
- Seal again by applying the transplanting gel
Although this is only one less step, it already makes me feel more at ease, if it works because I don’t have to use my own mascara. This product could essentially replace my mascara. Let’s see how it does put to the test.
This is me without mascara
Again, without mascara
I then applied one coat of the 3D fiber lashes. Transplanting gel, lashes, then gel again. One eye at a time
You can already see the fullness that it gives
Here is two coats- Transplanting gel – lashes – transplanting gel – let dry – process once more
You can see the slight increase in length and fullness
Here’s the close up
I think that the two coat is more for an evening look or a special event, not time worthy to attempt every day… unless of course you have that kind of time then by all means.. lol
Finally, for a glasses wearer there is nothing worse than doing your make up only for you not to be able to see it through the glasses, that is such an annoyance. I am happy to report that the lashes are full and long still through the frames!
Again there was not a huge huge difference in the one to two coats so I am more than certain that with the one coat the lashes would still appear just as long and as full with one coat for us glasses wearers.
Here is a reference of what regular mascara does for my lashes now that you have seen the 3D Fiber lashes
This is an older picture (hence my old watermark) but still the same mascara I wear today
As you can see they appear long but not necessarily full at all
Here is a collage of all of the looks
Overall my review of the new and improved younique Moonstruck 3D Fiber lashes is as follows:
-Less time needed – by this mascara replacing your mascara rather than being an added step
-More cost effective again not having to use your own mascara first
-Could potentially replace your mascara altogether
-Smaller case making easier to transport
-Much less messy, I didn’t have any fibers fall on my cheeks as I did with the old formula (both immediately and later on in the day)
-The windows on the bottle allow you to see how much you are using and know when it’s empty not like most beauty products.
-Pictures prove makes your lashes truly longer and fuller
Honestly I don’t think there are any with the new formula. I was very happy with it
The new formula can be purchased for $29 or if you have an online or in house party you could earn it for free! (See below for Party info)
My sister sells through her website at Lashalotwithmissy.com or you can message her on facebook to be added to her facebook group.

Their improved website makes it easier to track your party points and know how much free product you have earned towards your 3D Fiber Lashes or the long list of other make up and beauty products they sell.

I hope you enjoyed my review of these lashes. I am much more excited to use these every day rather than my mascara especially seeing how it matches up next to one another. Please do check out her site to see the other products that younique has to offer.
