Most ladies want long, beautiful eyelashes. Younique's Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes claims to give you a 300% increase in volume and thickness, according to the company's website. Is this a deal or dud product?

Like many busy women, Fayetteville residents Cayleigh Herlein and Krystle Smith are always on the go with their two-year-old boys, but they still want their eyelashes to look as long and beautiful as possible. They discovered the fiber lash mascara and are now presenters for Younique.

Smith is a breast cancer survivor and like many who battle cancer with chemo, the medicine took its toll on her hair, including her eyelashes.

"I lost my lashes, my eyebrows, and everything else," Smith said. "I don't have on anything right now and look how short my lashes are, and this mascara made me look like I had lashes again. It was kind of like getting something back that I never thought I'd have again. "

The women said it only takes a few minutes to apply the mascara. It's a three-step process combining transplanting gel and natural fibers.

It is relatively easy to put on, but how much does it cost?

"The mascara does sound expensive at $29," Herlein said. "It really does, but when you compare it to other high-end mascaras, you don't get the same results. If you go with the eyelash extensions, you're going to pay anywhere from $75 to $200 and they only last you four weeks. This mascara lasts eight to 12 weeks."

Although the mascara is water resistant, it is simple to remove. Herlein said you can use regular eye makeup remover.

From a breast cancer survivor and busy mom, this product is a deal and will have you batting your eyes with confidence.
