Younique - Terrible smell Mineral Touch Foundation

3.4
Details
I ordered my first product-the foundation mentioned above. I did so because I like the rep. Oh my the SMELL-I wore it two days and the stale perfume smell was too much-made me sick. I contacted my rep who told me to contact the company (she was great). I did so and there was no problem. They sent me a replacement which just arrived. The smell is not as strong but is still there. I am not going to wear it. I do see on the ingredients list that they use perfume. I don't know why - seems to me there is no need for it. I don't see that anyone has ever complained about the smell. I'm going to call the company now and I fully expect a refund.

My consultant is great she goes out of her way to make you feel loved and appreciated. She also drops my items off at my home. The mineral foundation is amazing it is light and turns into a powder. I also like the fact that there are very few chemicals in their make-up...and Younique has a retreat for women who have been sexully abused!

Younique - Mineral touch, too greasy, irritated skin

Update by user May 17, 2017

Younique issued me an refund for all of my products! I received an 80% refund because I returned them after 14 days. Very happy that hey accepted my return because it was very close to 30 days that I had the products.

Original review posted by user May 11, 2017

I bought a set with the Liquid Touch Mineral foundation, Mineral concealer, primer, and foundation brush. The presenter also suggested I get the concealer brush because it really helps to apply the concealer (it does not). I also bought the social media famous 3D Fiber...

You seem very upset, however I have few questions for you. Did you out on too much at one time so you would have caking problems?

And for your eye fiber, did you follow the directions stated, apply gel to lash, let dry, then apply fiber and apply gel again?

Instead of bashing the company products and your presenter, simply call customer service, I'm sure they are happy to help. And if you didn't like the products, why ddd you wait so long to return them?

My fault in that I waited until the foundation I was using ran out so it was past the 14 days all I could get was product credit. I agree the ingrediants are horrible the first ingrediant in the foundation is dimethicone! That is so bad for your skin.

Absolutely the worst foundation I have ever put on my face.So thin it just falls into every line and pore (even with their expensive primer), coverage is sheer/medium at best even with double and triple the "5 drops". Anything that touched my face got makeup on it....

I am in my mid 40's and have been wearing makeup since my mid teens. I know how to apply makeup.

NO I did not get a refund because of waiting for the primer and concealer to come it passed the 14 days (took almost 3 weeks to come!) so all they would do is give me product credit. I simply amazes me that ALWAYS presenters say "you must be applying it wrong". Seriously? If it were truly a good high end product you would not have to use younique primer and use their special brush (which is expensive and its *** as it sheds like crazy!) or some magic technique!

The foundation is a watery mess thats overpriced and you do not even get a full ounce in the bottle like every other foundation on the market.

The reviews are terrible on every site and the few good ones come from presenters. I only wish I had bothered to read reviews before wasting my money.

Younique Touch Foundation Review

I used the same younique touch mineral foundation, initially first application thought wow this is a great product, used very little to cover entire face, felt okay that night, used following morning and didn't go on as well and skin felt a little irritated. Used 3rd day and skin started to be red and blotchy and felt sore as I applied it, I then smelt the product and def a perfume scent. That night in bed skin felt sore and I knew it was the younique touch mineral foundation as all my other products I have used for many years. So I have stopped using it. My skin has since returned to normal, surprised how it has such good reviews as only used it for 3 days and such a bad reaction! The lip stain is rubbish also as does not stay on as all the presenters say it does, it comes off pretty much instantly, so the presenters are lying by saying it stays on all day!

Youniques claim of "natural" makeup is more bull to *** people into a purchase. The foundations number one ingredient is dimethicone, which is horrible for your skin, breakouts, allergic reactions, premature aging.

Their concealers number one ingrediant is petroleum jelly!! Ugh

Seriously I own a ton of lipstains even cheaper brands none of them I have to exfoliate first are you kidding me..Bet that's just one more thing at 20$ you have to buy..I will never purchase from them if you want to buy makeup for their prices go to Sephora they give free samples with every purchase and they have people that actually know how to apply makeup

I use the primer under the foundation and always keep my lips moisturised and exfoliated. The lip stain won't work right if you don't exfoliate.

I've not experienced any dry skin due to the products either.

I don't work for Younique, I just love the products and have one of the eye pallettes, the fibre lash, lip splash and 2 lip stains and a few other bits. I'm 40 so have to watch what I put on my skin and I have no complaints with these products but everyone is different so our skin must react differently to products too.

Just curious if you removed the product at night?

Also, did you exfoliate your lip before applying the stain?

Younique - Pricey but lasts a long time and works wonderfully!

I am truly confused about the complaints on here. NO, I do not sell it. I had used Cover Girl sensitive skin foundation since I was in high school and just switched to Younique liquid mineral foundation about a month ago. It IS expensive, IT does NOT come with a lot, however. It lasts so long!! You only need literally a few drops of the foundation for everyday wear (to cover your whole face). I truly believe that it is excellent quality, I tried several samples of foundation before I decided to go with this brand. I think most of these complaints are from people that are stuck in their ways and can't accept that they may need to try different techniques. I changed the way I put my make up on after 20 years and yes, there was a learning curve but I absolutely love this product. I can't say much about the others because I have not tired them but, the foundation is all that it says!
