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."

As an everyday masacra, this is a bit too expensive, especially when it does not effectively lengthen or volumize my lashes. Instead, I use it as a topcoat over my regular mascara to prevent smudging. so far so good.

I personally, love this mascara. It's not my everyday mascara, since it's quite expensive but for the purposes of crying, sweating, and 15+ hour days... it's brilliant!
Once I mastered the brush, it gave me beautiful, fully defined eyelashes. It does take some practice though.
To the poor ladies who have been ripping out your eyelashes: just use warm water and the gentle pressure of your fingers! Not hard!

I love this mascara!!! I don't know what it is my mascara always manages to flake off or smear everywhere no matter what it was even waterproof. I tried everything but after a while I just accepted that no mascara would work. My hairdresser gave me a sample size of this product ( I know weird) and this stuff changed everything It does not flake off except for a little after 15 hours straight (which is understandable) it lasted through swimming in the river partying wearing face paint removing the face paint and sleeping over at somebody's house. I just can't go back after this I have at least 3 unopened mascaras in my drawer but I'm not touching them I will probably return the others.

I kept avoiding this product because I thought it was a dumb gimmick. But I saw a few reviews on here and finally went and tried it. So glad I did!!
I'm very fair with blonde hair, and black mascaras always look really trashy on me. I need a good brown, which looks like black once it's on, which is not that easy to find. I adore Lancome Definicils, but it does run on me, which sucks, especially in the summer. Their waterproof formula is worse--it runs and gives me gray shadows under my eyes that won't rub off.
I've tried Almay--hate the brushes, love the colors, but the formulas aren't very good.
This weird tube mascara, however, is just what I've been wanting. It doesn't bleed!!!!!!! Amazing. Everything bleeds on me. And it stays on all day. And it comes in Medium and Dark Brown. Hooray!
I would have given it 5 stars, but it's not as lengthening as Lancome Definicils, and it's not volumizing to any great extent. Very natural looking. Won't impress the ladies that like really thick, super long lashes. But, did I mention it doesn't run? Just be sure to put on before your moisturizer of any other products.
And as to those reviewers that said this made their lashes fall out--the "tubes" that form around your own eyelashes are what comes off in the sink, No reason to panic. If you READ THE INSTRUCTIONS, you'll see they explain all this quite clearly.
So, best for literate gals who want a natural look.
P.S. For easy removal, I just discovered a new trick: wet eye area, then with eye closed--gently swish a wet q tip sideways across the base of lashes. Makes tubes come off in seconds. Just rinse away. Much faster than splashing and rubbing. Still loving this product and recommending to other friends living in hot climates where mascara runs for the hills. Great for weddings.

Would you buy again? Hell, no!!! This is to date the worst tubing mascara I've ever tested, and I've tested some. My favourites will remain the Kanebo Sensai ones, which are at least buildable to a certain extent, in comparison to this tame excuse which calls itself mascara. I consider myself quite skillful when it comes to mascara application, but no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get this one to work. So back to Kanebo I go.
Oh, I forgot. It gets plusses for being nice and glossy and black, and for being quite easy to remove, in comparison to Kanebo. So that's my two lipsticks for this one.
