Younique Review

younique review

Younique is a personal care multi level marketing which focuses on selling beauty products to people who need it.Read again,PEOPLE WHO NEED THEM!

I have reviewed many beauty focused mlm companies before this one.

They were Beautycounter,oriflame, Farmasi,Color Street,Bellame and Monat global.

So,what’s different with younique?

Younique was founded in 2012 and in no time it became famous in the USA.

And after 8 years it is giving tough competition to mlms like Farmasi,who is my favourite and top mlm company after reviewing these 5 mlm companies.

Main focus of younique is to empower women as you can see from this short video,explaining it..

Looks very existing?But wait,it is a sales video,and this is not a sales article(;

Is Younique A Pyramid Scheme?

Straight forward and short answer is no.

Younique is not a pyramid scheme,it is completely legit mlm company focusing on providing you an opportunity to make money through younique.

Why most people who are former mlms distributors claims younique a pyramid scheme,because of it’s pyramid scheme features.

Because you can also make money by recruiting others into this company.But younique is not a pyramid scheme,but it is an outright pyramid scheme.

I will tell you why it’s an outright pyramid scheme,but first let’s talk about why it’s not a pyramid scheme.

So,what is a pyramid scheme?

Pyramid scheme is a money making opportunity from which you can make money by recruiting others into this company.

Yes,and it is the only way to make money from that specific country.If you do not recruit,you lose.

I mean you will never make a dime,if you fail to trap someone in that company.

While on the other hand,in a multi level marketing company,you are selling physical products to others,which at the same time provides value to your customers.

Business is all about giving transition is somebody’s life.

And in mlms,recruiting is just an option.It is totally up to you,whether to focus heavily on recruiting or selling.

So,the main takeaway from this section is that there is a huge difference in pyramid schemes and multi level marketing companies.

In multi level marketing companies you are selling physical products + recruiting,while in pyramid schemes you are just RECRUITING and helping companies make more money.

Failure Ratio Is high

I talk over and over again about this thing on my website,which is the success rate in mlms.

But I do know why people oversee this stuff.I want you to read these lines carefully and give it importance.

So,many stats showed that 73 to 99% of people that join multi level marketing companies end up losing their hard earned money.

No different in younique.

I cannot tell you the exact stats,because they have not made any income disclosure till date.Maybe deliberately..who knows?

But one thing I am sure about is that this mlm company has a very high failure ratio,based on the reviews I read on BBB,consumer affairs and different platforms like this one.

You may be thinking why the failure ratio is high in multi level marketing companies?

Well,answer is simple.People that joins mlms are completely new and they do not know marketing.

Even they do not have an existing audience to sell their products,as a result of this they end up reaching out to their friends and family members.

For this they end up reaching in NFZ stands for NO FRIENDS ZONE.

To be honest with you,I like my relatives more than money and do not like to sell them anything.

How Younique Works?

Younique offers everyday people to sell their products and make a living from home.

By giving this opportunity to us they save their money on advertising.Instead it is totally up to their distributors to do their advertising.

By doing their advertising you are also going to make some money.

So,it is a win win for both of you.

Younique Product Line

younique compensation plan

Younique owners claim that this mlm got the best quality products in the market.And each and every item in younique is compatible with the market.

I have reviewed many mlm companies and all of them claim this.Nothing new!

They have products in the following makeup categories..

  • Eyes- eyeliners and mascaras of different price ranges and quality.
  • Lips – lipstick of each and every shade.
  • Face – Foundation bronzer and blusher

There are hundreds and thousands of products in this mlm company.Which is actually good in my opinion.More products,more options you got while selling to your potential customer.

I will not go in detail of these products,if you want to go in detail,you can go here.

Younique Flagship Products

younique 4d mascara

I like younique because they have their flagship products.This represents mlm company is a good and credible way to other.I do not know why,but customer psychology shows this over and over again.

I reviewed many beauty mlms,but only 2 of them have their flagship product,which is younique and other one is Monat global.

Younique’s flagship product is 3D/4D Mascara.

younique products

The price of this mascara is $29 one time fee.People This is a very hefty price in my opinion.We will talk about it in detail later..but first thing first.

The main thing is to look for what other people are talking about this multi level marketing company?

Younique have very mixed review.Some people are saying that these are crappy products and do not worth the price and money.

Some are saying that they have the best products and mascara in the world and it helped them improve their skin.

But what is the truth?

I can not give you my final verdict about these products,because who knows the one?s praising their company can be their distributors?By giving these positive reviews,they may be trying to make some extra cash?

To be honest with you,if you want to know the quality of their products,simply buy them personally.Because reviews can not help you make this decision.

Here is a 30 second video on it..

How To Make Money Selling Younique?

Like any other mlm company,there are two traditional ways for you to make money from younique.

OPTION 1 :Sell younique products to others and make recurring commissions on it.

OPTION 2:Recruit people under you and whenever they make sales you are going to make bonuses/commissions.

It is an important point to note that they are not paying you commissions just to recruit people under you.

But you are going to make money when someone makes sales and in your downline already.

What this means is that,bigger your downline,more commission you are going to make.

Cost To Join Younique

Younique cost to join is one time $99.With this they are giving you their flagship products to try yourself.

It is not bad when some other mlms makes it mandatory to buy their products also before they start pushing them.Yes,it?s a good step by younique,but this cost do not ends here.

You have to sell people younique products worth $125,if you do not succeed in this.Buy them yourself.

Yes,you read it right.

In 99.99% times people fail to maintain 124 PV in their first month,that is the reason they buy them yourself.

So,the total cost to join younique for the first year is?

One time fee $99 + $125 multiply by 12

One year cost for younique = $599.

Almost $600 for the first year.And when you know that you are not going to make $100 in your first year?

This business model is designed to grab our money.

Younique Compensation Plan

I don’t know why but most mlm companies out there make their compensation plan hard to understand.

And after everyday people join them,after making money from them they do not know where the sales or commission came from.

Younique is no different with these mlm companies.But I make it simple for you,rather then using PV/GV/DPG words,here is a simple word breakdown..

younique compensation

There are five ways for you to make money from mlm companies?

1 – Retail commission = Make 20 to 30% retail commission.If you do not know what retail commission is,it is when you make commission while selling physical products to others.

2 – Circle royalties – Make 3 to 6% from your downline.This means whenever your downline makes sales,you will make 3 to 6% on that specific sale.

3 – First level sales – 5 to 10% sales on your downline?s wholesale sales.

4 – Car bonus – If you make sales worth $3500,car bonus is waiting for you BOSS!

But how many people maintain this PSV?None..

5 – 3 to 5% commissions when your downline makes commission.

Here are the screenshots.If you want to know it better,then here are the two main things which you need to know..

1 – Sell their products directly to people

2 – Make a big downline and make $$$ on their sales.FUN?

You noticed one thing during this review?4 out of 5 ways to make money through younique is to recruit people under you.That is why it is an outright pyramid scheme,because it?s focused on recruiting heavily.

Is Younique A Scam?

No,younique is not a scam.It is legit mlm company which gives everyday people make money through selling their products.

Younique has many cons and pros.Here is the detailed session on the things which I liked and things which I disliked..

Things I Liked In Younique

First let’s talk about things which I liked in younique’


Every other day a new mlm launching.What’s funny is that they do not last for more than 3 or 5 years.Not with younique,this company achieved many milestones after launching in 2012.

It’s a very good thing to know,Younique is a very successful mlm company.It is not going anywhere for a couple of years for sure.

Key point is that you spent two years building a business and after this came to know that company went bankrupt?

It will hurt surely.

Positive Reviews

Younique has many positive product reviews.Yes,younique got many positive reviews on consumer affairs,but I said earlier most of the time these reviews are from their distributors.

Here are the screenshots of these reviews.


Things I Disliked In Younique

There are many things which I disliked in are the main ones..

Expensive Products

While reviewing any mlm out there,the first thing I notice is their products price range.Whether they are compatible to market or not.

Sad thing is that younique is not compatible with the mascara market.In fact it?s prices are 2x – 3x more than other companies.

And that is the only reason why people find it hard to get sales.Why does someone buy your shit when they can easily buy it from brands like Amazon with higher quality too?

younique mlm scam

It will cost you $29 where the average price in Amazon of these mascaras are 6 – 12 bucks only.

That’s not acceptable from people who have a mind,most of the complaints were against their price.Here is the screenshot of one..

Hidden Monthly Costs

You may be thinking that $99 one time fee is too much affordable,let’s try this mlm.But wait,I have something interesting for you.

You know that most people that join mlm companies do not make sales worth of $1 in their first year?Yes,that’s an amazing fact.

You are younique biggest customer and the most revenue this mlm is generating is by their distributors.

They have structured this mlm in a way that you have left with no option just for paying them $125 after every 3 months.

Yes it’s company requirement that you have to maintain $125 sales in the first three months.

Most mlms like me become too busy with life and kids and their husband that they can not fulfil this requirement and end up buying this themselves.

I am calling myself BUSY not ‘Mom’.

Is Younique A Pyramid Scheme In Disguise

Out of 5 ways,4 ways to make money from younique is by recruiting others into the same company.

That means that this mlm is focusing heavily on recruiting people.This is why I’m saying it is a pyramid scheme..

Low Income Potential

There can be two things why they are hiding income disclosure from all of us and these are as follows?

1 – Their distributors are not making enough money in younique.

2 – They want to hide how little money their distributors are making.

Reasons can be both of them,but the main thing is that their distributors are not making enough money to feed their families through this mlm company.

Google Downline Trend

Final nail in the coffin was found on google trend.As you cans see,it is looking that this mlm?s google trend is approaching deadline with every passing day.

This graph showing us that younique is always to its end and in one or maybe two years will be gone like all other mlm companies.

I compared it to farmasi which is also a mlm company.

Should You Join Younique?

Why join mlms when there are better business models out there?

Sorry,not fond of mlms,been there done that!

Mlms are destined for failure,the only person who is making money in younique is the owner of the company.

And to be very honest with you,I do not like to sell anything to my friends and family members.

Been there done that.

I like to mention a quote which I really like about Jack Ma,

‘Your relatives will be the least ones that are going to trust,they always doubt you and think that you are overselling them.’

Here is a better business model.

Lead generation for small business owners.

Let’s say that you generated a lead for a doctor and he closed that and made $1000 on that customer.

He will be more then happy to pay you $100 on that single lead.

Now imagine if you can generate 100 leads for that specific doctor every day?

That’s $30k/month for you,most of our students are making $100k/month.

And hundreds and thousands of them are making $10,$20k,$50k/month.

Simple,proven,repeatable and long term business model.
