I've used this mascara for about half a year now and I still love it. The packaging is nice, although the metal tube it comes in isn't needed in my opinion. The mascara itself is great. It doesn't smudge, it stays all day, holds up a curl decently and the tubes come off easily with warm water. The only thing I don't like about this mascara is that it doesn't do much for volume, which is something I lack with my short and thin lashes. It also is pretty pricy (30 dollars Canadian at sephora) but overall I do really like it and I will definitely keep buying it in the future.
This is a really unique mascara but it does take a while to get used to. I'll admit, it's not my favourite because I have blonde, thin eyelashes that need a lot of volume. It really helps to play around with different application techniques with this stuff because it all comes down to how you apply it. I do like this after it has dried out a bit, when it's "fresh" it's really wet and can make your lashes spidery. I like to brush this on really lightly and gently "paint" it on as opposed to combing through your lashes like the conventional method. The best thing by far is the staying power and removal. It is truly waterproof, the only time it hasn't worked for me is in the sauna or steam room (duh!). Removal is great, you really do need only water and pressure and the tubes just slip off. This mascara is good if you're overnighting somewhere and don't want to haul around makeup removers and cotton pads.
The only reason I took a point off is because it's not really my preferred look for a mascara. I use it occasionally, say if I'm swimming or want a natural look. If you bought this and don't like it, try to play around with different methods of applying!
I gave this mascara a 4 because for its specific use, its brilliant. On clients who tend to be smudgy and complain about difficult removal this is perfect. Because of the tubing aspect, smudging is a non-issue. and it removes so easily with water. But needs replacing fairly often and you know when its getting old because it gets spidery. unfortunately you don't know this until you've already applied it and the spiders appear without advance notice! I have read some reviews recommending Kanebo over this one so I'll give that a whirl and let you know what happens!
Love this mascara. Have been using it for years and would not want to change from using a tube mascara. Does not run or flake. Easy to remove. For those that want thick layered mascara this product will not make you happy. If you want a natural clean look that stays put 100% of the time you will be thrilled.
I bought my first tube a year ago and I love Kiss Me mascara. I told a friend about it, she thought it was too exspenxive, but I knew it was something she needed to experience. I bought myself another tube and had her try it first. She LOVES IT! (I knew she would). So now I have to go and get another tube for myself. I love the product and I will not use any other mascara. Thank you for no smudging, black circles and clumping. And you also have a new client.
Everything I have tried smudges within minutes...except this! I have super thin lashes so lash extensions are not even a great option. My solution has been to wear Lancome Hypnose as a base on my lashes and then use this as a top coat. Been doing this for years! I have yet to find a better solution.
This is not a review for Blinc Kiss Me mascara. No. I didn't want to pay $24 for it, so I went on-line searching for a dupe and found Kiss I-Envy Mascara. Kiss cosmetics are mostly sold in African-American beauty supply stores - the kinds of places that sell hair extensions and wigs. They also have some makeup gems and this is one of them. To be fair, I have never tried Blinc mascara, but I feel that I have absolutely no need to. Everything good that is said about Blinc in these reviews is also true of I-Envy, but I-Envy is $3.99. I've been using it for over a month now and will NEVER go back to regular mascara. Reviews for I-Envy here are for black, but it is also available in brown. While you're there, check out Kiss' liquid eyeliner too.
Definitely will NOT buy this again!
I was using the Mirenesse tubing mascara and wasn't completely happy, so I decided to try this one.
& it is just crap! I have fine lashes, and I curl my eyelashes with a MAC eyelash curler and then apply the mascara.. the mascara does NOTHING, and doesn't even keep my lashes curled..
The only mascara I can wear (everything else gives me raccoon eyes). Cannot be without.
My first tube mascara and I'll never go back to regular mascara. When I started wearing this something funny happened - my dark circles were lighter. I was never able to completely remove mascara smudges using all the eye makeup remover in the world. It's so obvious now. This mascara stays exactly where it should - in little tubes around my lashes. It's fun to remove, comes off easily with soap & water. I can gently glide the tubes right off my lashes with my fingers. My mother-in-law thought her lashes were coming out...nope, just the tubes! It does take some getting used to because it's a very different look (I am a woman who used to use Diorshow). But I'll never go back, it's so much better being able to completely remove my mascara every night. I might look at other "tube" brands, but I would repurchase this. Mine just says "Blinc" on the tube but the Sephora display called it "Blinc Kiss Me."
