I recently got the chance to try out products from the makeup company Younique. Over the last few years I have noticed the huge amount of followers Younique has gained and how people rave over there products daily. I was so excited when I got offered a chance to try a few of their products out and couldn’t wait for them to arrive!
Younique is a company based on making women feel beautiful inside and out! Founded in 2012 by a brother- sister team who have worked very hard to build their reputation of making ladies feel valued and empowered. The home based sales they value have helped women support other women in a younique way. Along with the great sales aspect, Younique products are made from high quality ingredients. All products are made in the most scientific way with the most natural ingredients . They have used science and technology to ensure a perfect makeup for every skin type.
What I Recived:
Claims: ‘This smooth foundation goes on liquid and dries to a soft, powdery finish while optical diffusers blur imperfections and minimize wrinkles and pores. No touch-ups necessary’
Directions: Shake before; Dot foundation on the forehead above each eye, on the cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, and the chin. Press in and smooth with finger, then blend in with Foundation Brush.
Foundation is one thing I am extremely picky about. I have tried hundreds and maybe only have a handful I would recommend or use myself. I was pleasantly surprised when I first tried the Mineral Touch Foundation! I shook well and applied with the liquid foundation brush that I also received. It had a great texture and an even better colour. It has the best fragrance, it’s so fresh and honestly one of my favourite part about this foundation! A huge thing for me when it comes to foundations is colour, I often find foundations to be orange or the complete wrong colour for someone as pale as myself. Scarlet is the perfect shade with no orange tones and it even has a great finish. It’s not dry, it has a fair coverage, and I can even build it up without looking like a cake face. The dry to a powder finish is what I loved! I didn’t feel I needed to add any powder. It also had a great wear time and lasted me most of the day!
Claims: ” Its recessed area lets you adjust your liquid foundation coverage for a seamless application “
Directions: Place liquid in recessed area and, using, short, quick strokes, brush over face for seamless, controlled foundation application.
I am a brush lover and this one will be added to the top 10 of my collection. It’s super soft and blends foundation perfectly. I love the little hole in the middle. I placed a little dollop of foundation and blended away to a perfect streak free finish! For the price it is very comparable to other makeup companies around. The fibres are super soft and I would definitely recommend!
Claims: ” A long-wearing cream shadow fit for a queen. With this elite eye shadow and its velvety opulence, you’ll turn heads wherever life takes you “
Directions: Sweep and blend cream shadow across eyelids using Cream Shadow Brush.

I either love creme shadow or hate them; some crease, some have a weird texture, or have a short wear time. For me they have to be perfect or I’ll never use them. The Younique cream shadow I actually liked! It had a great silk texture and did not crease. The shade I have is a very light sparkly shade so I can’t say if a darker shade will be the same and not crease. For wear time it lasted all day! No crease, and never came off, or faded like some creme shadows tend to do. It’s a great colour and I found I could even use it for a light highlight on the cheeks! Multipurpose is always great!
Overall, I was pleasantly surprised with all the products I tried out! The packaging is simple but beautiful and you get great value with every product. When trying out a new brand you never know what you’ll get, but I can say with Younique you are getting what they promise, no disappointments.
