Younique is currently facing an ongoing class action lawsuit in California Federal Court regarding their main product, the Moodstruck 3D Mascara. The product was marketed as "all natural," and containing "green tea." When in reality it contained crushed nylon.
Sales of this product represented a SUBSTANTIAL portion of the company's gross revenue prior to merging with COTY (NYSE) - where the Founders of the Younique made $600M in cash, and $400M in stock options. It is pretty clear Younique was aware of this problem for more than 1 year prior to changing its formula.
In the Moodstruck 3d Fiber Lash class action lawsuit, Younique has been ordered to provide all customer names, addresses, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses in California, Florida and Ohio to be notified of the Class Action.
The Judge's authorized notice says:
"If you purchased Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes between October 2012 and July 2015 Your Rights May be Affected By A Class Action Lawsuit.
A class action lawsuit involving purchasers of Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes in California, Ohio, and Florida is currently pending in federal court in Santa Ana, California. The main claim in the case is that Younique told consumers the fiber lashes in the mascara were made of 100% Natural Green Tea Fibers, but in reality the fibers were ground-up nylon. Younique denies any wrongdoing. The Court has not decided who is right."
Younique has filed an emergency appeal to fight this Order.
