I initially wrote out a very long post, full of my critiques of the Dressing Your Truth system's lack of ethnic diversity, and I have decided to not put it up today. It's not that I don't think women of color are on the sidelines, as usual, even in DYT... it's that I don't want people to think that it's not worth looking into anyway. Just go in aware that it is made by white women, for white women, and we are a sidenote. An asterisk. And not all of the guidelines have women of color in mind at all, and simply won't work for us... like Asian and Black women not being able to wear black mascara unless they are Type 4 (no other types gets to)... like what? If your natural hair is black or black-brown, you get to wear black mascara. PERIOD. To me, that's in the same category as matching your brow product to your natural eyebrow color. Which would also be black if you are Asian or Black. So there's my tip, ignore the parts that clearly didn't take your beautiful ethnic features and coloring into consideration. Those rules really only apply to Becky.
Speaking of eyelashes, I am going to show you my eyelashes. In November, I bought Younique's lash serum, so I can compare it to the Etude House lash serum I had been using. I ran out of the Etude House brand, and since I was already buying Younique products, decided I should take theirs for a run and post results. Note: I paid for my products with my own money, though I was given a discount.
A picture is worth a thousand words, so here's November, versus now.
I am wearing the same mascara (Younique Moodstruck Epic Mascara $24) in both. Granted, my "before" photo is after already using a lash serum for months (the Etude House serum). I am sure that if you are new to lash serums, you'll see a more dramatic difference.
I didn't notice a lot of difference in length, though they are a little bit longer, but I noticed that each individual lash hair is now WAAAAAAY THICKER than before! Like they've been busting ass in the gym, doing squats, lifting heavy weights, eating protein shakes, droppin-in-to-the-floor THICK.
FINALLY, a part of me that qualifies as thick!
The Younique Moodstruck Esteem Lash Serum ($42) is hardcore. My lashes aren't longer, but who cares? For some women it may take longer than 2 months for length anyway, and maybe I'm one of those women. Or maybe it's that I've already gotten a lot of length growth from my other lash serum, so there just isn't that much more to grow. All I know is that I have a TON left in my tube still, and will keep on using it.
It's pretty easy to use, and I put it on before bed and then during the day sometimes too (not always though). The price is actually really cheap compared to other high-end lash serums. Obviously Etude House is way cheaper (here's my post of that product review), and if this one is out of your budget, I did get results from Etude House. If you want to thicken up your lashes and GROW NEW HAIRS, the Younique one is great for that.
Verdict: If you're looking for thicker, fuller lashes, or want to regrow some new lashes because yours are sparse or thinning, this is your product!
