Falsies in a tube?! Younique’s Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+

Chances are, if you wear mascara, you’re looking to enhance the something about your lashes.  Maybe you want more volume?  Perhaps you want more length? And, if you’re anything like me, you love the way false lashes check-off both of these wants, but hate the process and time it takes to apply them.  But what if you could apply your mascara and falsies, all at the same time?  Younique’s Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+ ($35.00 Cdn) allow you to do just that. In fact, they can increase your average lash volume by up to 400%!  This product comes with 2 tools of the trade: the first is a Transplanting Gel, and the second is a tube of Natural Fibers.  Simply apply a coat of the Transplanting Gel, followed by the Natural Fibers, and finish with one last coat of Transplanting Gel.  You can keep repeating the process as desired.  The result?  Kardashian-worthy lashes that will leave you saying, “I promise, they’re real!”.

You may have heard (or seen the incredible results on social media) of Younique’s previous Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes, and are wondering, “what’s changed?”.  The answer is an enhanced formula, a new brush, and a chic update in packaging, all making this mascara more impressive than ever before.  As someone with sensitive skin and eyes, I also like that this product is hypoallergenic. So, after giving it a try, what do I think of this highly-coveted mascara?  Keep reading to find out!

In sum, this product is impressive (even my boyfriend looked at my lashes and said, “Whoa!”).  It’s quick and easy to apply, lasts all day, and washes off easily at night.  There was some minor fallout of the fibers when applying, but I simply wiped them away with a fluffy brush.  I had no irritation or discomfort, and I like that you can apply additional coats for more drama: 1 coat of fibers for work, or 2 for a night on the town.  And, if you’re someone who already wears false lashes frequently, this product is a more affordable (and simpler!) way to get the look falsies provide.  I highly recommend giving this product a try.  Younique is so confident you’ll love their product, they even have a “Love It Guarantee”: if you’re unhappy with your purchase, you can obtain a full refund within 14 days, an 80% refund within 15-30 days (or a credit/exchange), and a credit or exchange up to 31-90 days from delivery!  Ready to purchase?

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie Featuring Vegan Pure All In One


Vegan Pure 3
Being a vegetarian, my favourite food during Thanksgiving isn’t the Turkey (or even the Tofurky for that matter), it’s the pumpkin pie!  Using Vegan Pure All In One, you can have this yummy pumpkin pie protein smoothie for breakfast, lunch (or hey, even dinner) and have it be good for you.  What better way to use up those Thanksgiving-baking leftovers?!

Before I get to the recipe (and my review of it), let me tell you a little bit about the benefits of Vegan Pure All In One.  While you can use it as part of a pre or post workout shake, my personal preference is to use it to make a healthy breakfast smoothie.  Being a vegetarian who doesn’t always get the nutrients she should from what she eats, and also someone who tends to skip breakfast in general, I love that this product is a quick, simple way to start your day right.  If you’re in a crunch for time, simply mix a scoop of it with water, and you’re good to go!

One serving has:

  • 16g of complete vegan-derived protein (equivalent to 3 eggs)
  • 1.5g of Omega 3 Oil (equivalent to 2.3 servings of salmon)
  • 2 cups of fruits and greens (equivalent to 2 servings of kale)
  • 1 billion probiotics (equivalent to 1 cup of yogurt)
  • Over 4g‘s of fibre (equivalent to 1 apple)
  • 50% of the daily recommended intake of vitamins and minerals

Vegan Pure All In One is 100% vegan, non-GMO, dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, and contains no artificial flavours or sweeteners.  It is available in both Chocolate and Vanilla flavours, with 9 servings per container.  Did I also mention it’s only $19.97 at Wal-Mart!?

The Recipe:

Vegan Pure 1

Now, let’s get to our yummy pumpkin pie smoothie!  The recipe I used is from SkinnyMom.com, with a couple of slight modifications.

For this recipe (makes 1 large serving), you’ll need:Vegan Pure 2

  •  ½ cup 100% Pure Pumpkin
  • ½ banana, sliced
  • ½ cup vanilla almond milk (I used skim milk instead)
  • 5-8 ice cubes
  • 1 scoop Vegan Pure All In One Vanilla
  • ½ tbsp honey
  • ½ tsp pumpkin pie spice (I added some cinnamon as well, once blended)
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract

Simply blend all the ingredients together until smooth, and voila! It can be Thanksgiving any time of the year (or day).

My Review:

Vegan Pure 4This smoothie has a smooth and creamy texture, and tastes true to a pumpkin pie with a slight hint of banana.  The Vegan Pure All In One powder blended easily with the rest of the ingredients, without altering the taste in any way.  I’ve also tried this protein powder mixed with some strawberries and peaches and it was just as yummy.  You’ll notice a slight green hue when mixing it in with lighter coloured ingredients.  I like that it tastes great on it’s own simply mixed with water, but doesn’t overpower when mixed into a recipe such as this pumpkin pie one.  Overall,  I highly recommend Vegan Pure All In One.  It’s affordable, good for you, and good for the environment.
