Love It 3D Mascara Review + Giveaway

Disclaimer: I was sent a sample of Love It Mascara to try for myself. I wouldn't review something I haven't tried.

I'm not a beauty blogger (as evidenced below) so this post is pretty awkward. But I feel like since I don't know anything about makeup outside of refusing to pay more than $8/tube of mascara maybe makes this somewhat legit?

I had the chance to try Love It Mascara, here's the story of the company founders:

Derek Maxfield and Melanie Huscroft, a brother-and-sister team, founded Younique in September 2012 with a mission to uplift, empower, and validate women across the globe. Derek and Melanie firmly believe that all women should feel valued, smart, and empowered through opportunities for personal growth and financial reward! In October, Younique closed with $27.9 million in sales, which is pretty exciting for a two-year-old company. Younique has seen a 5,145% increase in year-over-year growth from 2013 to 2014. That’s just unheard of, even in this industry! We also maintain a 70% retention rate, which is much higher than average.

Love It Mascara  is All natural- Paraben Free, Carcinogen Free, Chemical Free, Organic, Cruelty Free, Gluten Free and Hypoallergenic. And also waterproof (high five sweaty/oily girls like myself!). All this is important to me for a minute because I saw this youtube video:



The cost is $29 and if used everyday it last 2-3 months. At first glance, $29 is way too steep for mascara...especially for this girl who buys the cheapest whatever that says "100x the volume!" on it. 

However! When I put it on it looked JUST like falsies. I spend about $9 for a set of falsies when I wear them (weddings, events, etc), plus have to buy backups for when I accidentally glue them to my eyebrow and have to rip them off in pieces and try with a new pair and hope I can get it right. Granted I am top 5 clumsiest in the world but I'm sure a lot of people struggle with falsies. So if I'm just using it when I want the falsie look I think it's COMPLETELY worth the cost.

Here's the process:

*do one eye at a time

1. Apply regular mascara
2. Apply a layer of gel
3. Apply the fibers
4. Apply another layer of gel
(this looks stressful but it takes less than 30 seconds)

Here's my process (excuse the lack of makeup, I feel like when I look at other mascara tutorials I'm really distracted by the other makeup and eye shadow so this is me trying to keep it simple and the focus on the lashes):

My regular mascara:


Love It 3D Fibers + gel layers:
