I guess technically, I joined Younique on the 22nd of June 2015, but I didn't actually start doing anything until the 1st of July. This was my first party and my first order, so for me, that's when I started.
It all came about in Australia. I was staying with a friend of a friend just outside Sydney at the end of my trip and there were boxes of Younique products all over her house as well as an excessive amount of makeup in the bathroom. I has seen a few posts, briefly on Facebook that another girl (friends of these 2 friends) had put up, but then it disappeared. I'd had a quick look at it and not really thought anything of it at all, but now I was seeing it every day and my curiosity was piqued so I finally asked "What is this?".
At this point, my new friend started spouting her love of Younique and how she would never use another makeup as it was so good for her skin and less expensive that other mineral based makeup. She then went on to tell me about her sponsor (another friend from the UK) and how well she was doing and how Younique changed her life. So I tried it.
The Initial Attraction
The first thing was that I loved the makeup. Of course, the mascara was what my friend had me try first. I've always had quite long eyelashes anyway and had never been particularly picky with my mascara. I didn’t know anything at all about makeup and had just run out of mascara. The reason I didn't have a new one was that I had no clue which one to buy. I had spent several trips to Boots walking up and down the mascara section and leaving with nothing, so I was open to trying it and hoping I liked it. So I put it on and was amazed. I spend a good 3 or 4 minutes just staring at my eyelashes from different angles in mirror! Through the day. I'd stop and look at them in different reflections. I fell in love with it.
So now I was interested. The next day I tried on a full face of makeup; foundation, powder, eye pigments, eye liner, mascara, lip stain.... I don't wear makeup often and I find that when I do, I know it's there. The next day, my face feels oily, even though I took it off before bed. I feel like I need to wash my face again when I get up. Younique did not let me down. I hardly noticed it all day. In fact, I forgot I was wearing makeup at all. At one point in a bathroom I caught sight of myself in the mirror and thought wow, I'm pretty! I also wore it on the plane home. After arriving in London 23 hours later, I didn't feel like I had to scrub my face. Not any more than you generally do after a long haul flight anyway!
The Start Of Something...
I signed up 8 days after getting home. After much deliberating and pacing. I wanted the mascara for myself and I wanted everyone else to try it. I actually can't understand now why anyone would wear anything else. This one is the best and you're crazy if you don't try it out just to stick to the one you know. I guarantee that after trying this, you'll never go back. I love the products and I want everyone to know that there is something this good out there. Anyone who wears makeup will have their life improved by using Younique and it's now my mission to do that. To make everyone's life better with beautiful eyelashes and mineral skin products.
