Love this mascara! Over the years, I have bought so many tubes of this fabulous, Holy-Grail status mascara. Not only do my lashes look defined & dark, they never-ever smudge! Honestly. When applying this tubing mascara, if you do smudge around the lashes etc..., just wet a Q-Tip, press out the water and clean up the area. Easy. Taking off this mascara is easy too. No makeup remover is necessary (use it to remove any shadow/liner, but not needed for mascara). Just run water over your face in the shower or use a damp washcloth and lightly smooth up your lashes with your fingers. Little "spider legs" will fall off and you will be mascara-free. Don't worry; those "spider legs" are not your lashes. Really. I highly rec this tubing mascara. Note: The Amplifying Mascara is for those who like a big, bushy brush. I don't. Since I have both mascara formulas, I use the regular Blinc mascara brush and dip it into the Amplifying formula. But, the regular Blinc formula is the one that I buy over and over and over...
I am allergic to just about every mascara. And I have tried them all. This mascara is the only one that doesn't irritate my eyes. Also I am notorious for having raccoon eyes. I have oily skin and I sweat (and cry) easily. This mascara does not come off until you want it to!!! Just take a warm washcloth and hold it over your lashes for 30 seconds and then gently tug the mascara off ur lashes. Voila! Also I think that my eyelashes are longer now that I am not using drying waterproof mascara that is so hard to remove.
As far as overall effectiveness goes, Blinc mascara is the best that I've found - it vamps up my lashes while still looking natural, and doesn't smudge but comes off easily with warm water. However, the ingredient list isn't great reassuring. I don't need a mascara that contains sunscreen, especially not oxybenzone...moving on...
Not only was this product very thin but it also made my eye lashes clump immediately. To top it off, you couldn't even tell that I was wearing mascara! When I washed my face, the mascara came off immediately and in clumps-- i thought that my eye lashes had fallen out! It was a horrible experience and I have had way better experiences with drug store mascaras that are under $10. I would never recommend this product.
I got a deluxe sample of this in a Sephora mascara box. I love the small wand for using this on my bottom lashes, but as far as tubing mascaras go, I much prefer L'Oreal's Beauty Tubes, much better price AND an included primer to thicken as well as lengthen. Although, nothing beats Blinc for using as a bottom lash mascara, I really couldn't justify the price of such a specific makeup product. That is why I would not buy this again.
I purchased this after being desperate to find a mascara that wouldn't smudge (I've tried them all- every single waterproof formula that I can think of... even the mascaras from Japan and they still smudged!)
Purchased this and although these is no smudging, it did not really go much for my lashes. I may as well just wear no mascara.
The biggest deal breaker for me is is the fact that it holds ZERO curls. I have straight lashes and although none of my water proof mascaras stayed put, they all held my curls (some better than others) but with Blinc, as soon as I apply a coat, my lashes go back to being straight.
It hardly lengthens and volumizes.
It doesn't smudge though which is why I think it deserves at least 3 lippies. If you have already thick, long, curly lashes this would probably work well for you. If you're like me and you need your mascara to
- hold curl
- add decent length and volume
then it won't do much.
I have a system. The only formula that holds my curl on my straight, lame lashes is waterproof. I use YSL faux cils waterproof. But, that still smudges! I have to top it w tubing mascara to be totally smudge free. Tubing mascaras are hard to find and this is the original and best. Perfect lashes that'll last til the next day if I forget to take them off (never happens just speaking hypothetically). If u have raccoon eye, try this! If you have it AND your lashes don't take a curl, try my system.
Love this mascara! Never ever smudges under my eyes as even waterproof mascaras do! Be patient as you remove. No tugging! Just lots of water and gentle pressure:)
Dance party! No smudges, no stains, yet it comes off easily with just water if you gently rub your lashes from the roots outward after wetting your face.
Creates a thickened, darkened but fairly natural lash that does not bleed off onto your skin even in the most humid conditions.
This used to be called Kiss Me, now it's Blinc. They have improved the design of the wand (fuller brush, more bristles) since the last time I bought it two years ago. I think they've also changed the formula so it's less wet.
They took a nearly perfect product and made it perfect. It used to take at least a minute to dry, meaning you had to avoid blinking for quite a long time to not mark up your under-eye area. Even with that problem, it was still my favourite mascara. Now it has a faster dry time, and the more bristly brush means it combs through the lashes better to individualize them, avoiding any clumps or wet patches.
I love this stuff. After my last tube ran out I experimented with other brands for a while, because of the earlier problems mentioned. But nothing else worked any better, so last week I went back to it, and I'm so glad I did.
I love this for a natural-workday-lengthening mascara. This mascara is a wetter formula that dries glossy black (unusual, but really pretty). To get the most out of this make sure to curl your lashes. You do have to work quickly and using a lash comb is a good idea because lashes try to fuse together a bit while this is drying. However, once it's dry, it doesn't budge (not in a dry and crunchy way...a very soft and flexible sort of way). It's actually pretty fun to take off. Rinse your lashes with lukewarm water and very gently rub/massage/pull the tubes from your lashes. Don't force them off, let the warm water do it's job. I have experienced less fall-out and softer lashes since switching to this (and applying olive oil at night). Even though it is expensive, I will absolutely repurchase.
