This is the only mascara I have found that works for me. I have dry itchy sensitive eyes and I always end up rubbing them. That coupled with my oily skin, I always end up with raccoon eyes even with water proof mascara. Not only that, but since the skin under my eyes is already dark, it makes it look worse and I have to use a ton of make up remover to get rid of the residue, so I had given up on mascara until I tried Kiss Me. It makes my lashes darker and longer, it keeps the curl and I am smudge free all day and night. When it's time to take it off, I lather with some soap, a few splashes of water and voila no more mascara. I love it.

Still on the hunt for my perfect mascara. This product looks amazing on my thick-lashed friend, so I tried it. My eyelashes are pretty straight, fairly long, but not thick; this product killed all the eyelash curling I did prior to application,made me look like I had about 7 eyelashes total, but provided good color payoff and lenghtening. I tried recurling them, but it just looked silly. While I was very intrigued by the tubing effect, after I took off the mascara, I swear my eyelashes were thinner! Like they had been stripped of whatever meager thickness they had, haha. The search continues...

I loved this mascara at first -- it doesn't budge and the little tubes it forms on your lashes are awesome. However, I bought it in the summer (I think it was July) and by November, it started to dry up in the tube. At $24, I hoped it would last me longer than that. It's not a bad mascara (and I've tried so many), it's worth a try, but it's not quite perfect and I'm not sure I'd repurchase... it's a little too pricey.

I originally got this as a sample with a Sephora purchase. Had I not gotten the sample I probably wouldn't have tried it on my own. I'm glad I did because I feel in love with it. I don't use it as a daily mascara because it doesn't add as much thickness as I prefer, but I use it anytime I'm worried about smears or smudges. Mainly when I need a mascara to last all day or know I'll be in a lot of humidity. For example I always use this when I attend concerts and will be in the mosh pit. Overall I love this mascara.

Say goodbye to raccoon eyes! =) I was introduced to this product by a friend, and I now view mascara in a whole new way! Don't expect a whole lot of volume or length from this - it's suited for those who are looking for a very natural finish. The BEST thing about this mascara is that it does NOT budge! I was so impressed when I accidentally rubbed my eye and didn't have any smudging or flaking! Expecting to cry? At least you'll know your mascara won't be running! The secret to taking this stuff off is warm water and a wash cloth. They come off in stringy clumps, rather than a runny, black mess. Strange at first, but you get used to it. This stuff is serious ammunition for your lashes. Highly recommended!

idk what happened! i tried this mascara a few years ago and LOVED it so i finally took the plunge and bought it last week. it arrived today and i was really excited to try my new things so i ran into the bathroom and washed my face to play.
this mascara is not at all how i remember! i remember it making my lashes really thick and long and pretty. not at all the result i got today. idk if they've changed the formula or what. my lashes are the same. today they just look like my regular eyelashes but blacker. what?
so i am sending this back ($24 is a lot of money to spend on mascara that doesn't even make a difference) but i'm excited to wash it off tonight because i do love pulling off the little tubes.

Great for those who want long, clean lashes. No volume though. Very gentle, like the color a lot. But the brush is outdated. I much prefer a volumizing formula and not this.
I also have minis of this in blue and green and the colors are very bright. Not anything I would wear out. I have the brown too and the color is very light and warm.

There is some confusion over the branding of this. I have only used BLINC Kiss Me and this is what my review is based on.
I love this mascara. I got a sample tube at a beauty supply store. It was very small and lasted four applications. I probably could have squeezed another one out of it, but I was anxious to get a full size tube. It cost me a little over $19 Canadian at a beauty supply store. I have sensitive eyes, and am vegan. I need something without animal ingredients, that is totally waterproof and smudgeproof. I had been using GOSH's Looong Lash Mascara, and while it was "good enough" it wasn't the best. It smudged and flaked a little after about 5 hours of wear. THIS mascara doesn't smudge, doesn't flake, doesn't smear, doesn't irritate my eyes, and I can rub them without fear of screwing up my mascara. When applied correctly, it makes my lashes look much longer, and adds enough thickness for me. I love how black this is. A lot of black mascaras are a warm, light black. Not this one! It is a true, glossy, dark black. I'm not a huge fan of the brush, but if I use a lash comb before it dries, I can get rid of any clumps that may have appeared. This is definitely the best mascara I've ever used. I think it even beats out Maybelline Full n Soft, which I used for over a decade before going vegan nearly three years ago. It's super easy to remove, and I love looking at the little tubes in my fingers at night. I use warm water on a washcloth, or toilet paper, and then GENTLY pull the tubes off. I then use jojoba oil for the rest of my waterproof makeup. Love this stuff. I will re-assess the marks for packaging and overall rating after a month or so, but for now, a 5 overall and a 2 for packaging. I'm really excited to try the blue mascara, and will definitely re-purchase this when it's gone.
To the gals who had trouble with lasting time and application; it helped me immensely to read all the tips and tricks BEFORE applying. The first time I put it on, it was extremely clumpy and flaked shortly after applying. It's nothing like the regular coating mascaras; there is a small learning curve to this. Give it another shot. If you read the tips and put them to use, once you get it right, I'm more than confidant you're going to love it.
UPDATE. It's now been a month of using the full sized tube. I still love this and will definitely re-purchase. I wish I'd found this years ago.
UPDATE. July 2009. Someone I love deeply died and I've cried more in the last two weeks than in my whole life combined. This mascara stayed on through it all, except for a few tubes on my cheeks after a two hour hysterical sob-fest in LA heat. Amazing.
UPDATE. January 2011. I took my packaging rating down to a 2 (from a 3 before) because the last TWO tubes have snapped when I closed them. I'm not putting extra strength into my closing-mascara-efforts, so I don't think it's me. Not impressed. I will repurchase, but if it happens again, I'll have to look for another mascara.
UPDATE: May 2011. The last two tubes I've gotten aren't as long wearing as the others I've used. I am now looking for another mascara, as this is no longer working for me. It doesn't flake, but if I rub my eyes it will loosen the tubes and they'll break off onto my face. Not impressed. :( I took my overall rating to a 4 because it's still better than other mascaras I've used.
UPDATE: July 2011. I'm an idiot. I realized that I had been layering this over a non waterproof mascara and that's why it was tubing off on me. I started using this over a waterproof Revlon and it's working great again. I have not broken the tube either, though now that I mention it, I'm likely to. Either way, I'm still really liking this mascara and I take back my earlier comments about it starting to suck.

I've been swearing by this for years. Stays on all day, no smudging / flaking. Great for travel / camping - just wet your fingers & "roll" it off your eye lashes. It does make my lashes a bit stiff after long days wearing it, but at least it stays on my lashes all day. It even stayed on through a whole work day & delivering a funeral eulogy with lots of tears. But if you're crying or face gets wet - don't rub your eyes as that will start the removal process. Just pat your eyes dry & it should stay on. But it never runs. It will just come off it little tubes / chunks.
Only downfall is the price. L'Oreal has a new beauty tubes product that promises similar results, so I will test that one out next in hopes of saving $20.

This over priced mascara lengthens but doesn't not give any volume. My lashes just looks darker. It comes right out when you wash it with warm water and it does come out in tubes! It was pretty interesting at first when I was removing the mascara, but then I couldn't tell if it was mascara coming off or my own lashes.

I have major problems with raccoon eyes with mascara. Doesn't matter what brand, waterproof or not, it will smudge. This is what is great about this product. I can wear it all day, and I do not have to worry about checking a mirror all day to make sure there's no dark spot under my eyes. It is very easy to remove, I think even better than regular mascara. This does not add much volume or thickness, but I can sacrifice until they perfect it more....which I am sure they will. I heard that they are already coming out with one for lenthening. Anyway, this product is a must for anyone who has to constantly worry about raccoon eyes. I read alot of complaints about the application, but I had no problems.

I am not thoroughly impressed with this mascara; probably, solely based on the fact that i found it to give me spidery lashes and my lashes didn't look any different. I will say that it'll be great for those who already have thick lashes because it does hold the curl of your lashes, lengthens your lashes and doesn't flake or smudge. I also find it expensive at $30 Cdn (before taxes) given that it doesn't give me 'prominent' lashes (mind you, i'm asian with thin and straight lashes so I want something that will 'bring out' my lashes). The only thing I like about it is it's lengthening and curling effects, that's it. No repurchase for me.

So far, so good! I've been searching for my HG mascara. I have major problems with raccoon eyes, even with WP mascara. For awhile, I even stopped wearing mascara at all. This one seems to be staying on without ending up as dark circles. But it is still early in the day... This is not volumizing but lengthening. I tried it last night as a test case--comes off with makeup remover, but not just soap and water. That isn't a problem for me because I always use makeup remover for my eye makeup anyway. It is nice to be able to wear some mascara again, though!

I like the fact that it doesn't flake and removing my makeup is easy too! It is expensive tho.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Olive Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
This mascara is perfect for those with Asian or just flat and uncurlable lashes. It doesn't matter to me how many coats I put on since I always apply more than 3. I never found it clumpy. It comes off quite easily with a few splashes of warm water on your face.
One problem I can think of besides of the price I paid, which was $30 cdn, is that it doesn't really lengthen as the tube said. However, it does it's job, which is not smudge or run on me.

After 20 years of wearing mascara, I have found my HG. It does not smear, does not smudge, is rain proof, humidity proof, sweat proof.
The 'volumizing' is pretty much non existant when it's worn without a primer, so I wear it alone for subtler lashes or over the primer that came in the double tube with my loreal mascara. When I do that my lashes are long and thick. People regularly ask me if I'm wearing Dior Show (which smears on me in like 20 seconds.) I swear, I've led tutorials on this stuff at Sephora, because the sales girls refuse to believe it isn't DiorShow.
I've tried the one they make with the built in primer, and it's got nothing going on my loreal/kiss me combo.
To remove, soak it with warm water, and sort of gently rub your eyes. Slips right off. Totally wierd, and awful looking in your sink, but for all day lashes, I do not care.
I have been wearing this for 2 years now, and the only thing that could possibly make me stop would be if they dc-ed it. I'll pay $24 and count myself lucky to have found it.

This mascara takes practice, plain and simple. You will probably hate it the first time you try it.
You need to apply multiple coats while its wet, or you're going to get crazy Kiss of the Spider Woman eyes. It helps to first brush through your lashes with a clean lash comb.
Getting the mascara off isn't a simple swipe of cleaner on a cotton pad. It takes some time to get it off gently so you don't rip out lashes. This isn't the mascara to wear if you're going to come home late and crash.
If you are willing to put in the extra time it takes to apply and remove this properly, you will like the results. This separates and defines like no other mascara I've tried.

This is one of my 'go-to' mascaras. I have major problems with even waterproof mascaras smearing. This one never does. It flakes off instead of smearing. It provides smooth, even coverage. I actually find that it really plumps my lashes--so much so that I mainly use this for evening or nightime use. I find that my other 'go-to' mascara, Lorac Publicity Stunt, has a more natural look and even longer staying power (they claim up to 3 days) for everyday use. I will definitely keep buying Kiss Me.

I absolutely LOVE this mascara. I've tried many many different kinds of mascara, waterproof or not, but I'll always end up with panda eyes by the end of the day. With this one it stays put no matter what. I know it's bad :) but I've fallen asleep with it on before and in the morning it still looks perfectly fine. I like that it lengthens my lashes a lot and thickens it a little bit. The only thing is that it doesn't give me as much volume as I like, but since it stays on I'll live with that. It did take me a couple of tries to get the application right though. I will definitely buy this product again.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
No matter what I do, no matter what brand I try, water-proof or not, mascara smudges on me. This is the only one that doesn't, plus, it is easy to remove, therefore, it is my HG mascara. Now, it doesn't have amazing lengthening or thickening power, but none of the mascaras that do will stay on my lashes, so I'll stick with this.
