Stop painting your lashes... Tube them! Blinc mascara *a review*

Hey lovelies,

I am here today with a mascara review. A few months ago, I won a contest on Glymm's facebook page for a mystery box (see post HERE), included in my box was the Blinc mascara.
This mascara wasn't love at first sight, but I decided to give it another try and give you guys a full review on my thoughts.


I receive this mascara in the shade black which is prefect because I only use black mascaras.
I was really happy when I first saw this in my mystery box because I was in desperate need of a new mascara.
I gave it a try, didn't like it a single bit and tossed it aside.
Last month I ran out completely and decided to give it one last chance, FAIL!

Here is some info taken from Blinc's website:
"Formerly known as Kiss Me, blinc is the original mascara invented to form tiny water-resistant "tubes" around your lashes rather than painting them like conventional mascaras. Once applied, these beauty tubes bind to your lashes and cannot run, smudge, clump, or flake, even if you cry or rub your eyes. Whether your daily activities take you from the office, to your sweaty workout and then out to dinner, your lashes will look as good in the evening as they did when you first applied blinc in the morning."

It is true, blinc mascara is not going anywhere... It will stay where it is not matter what you do.
Blinc claim that this mascara can be easily removed without the help of harsh eye makeup remover. 
It was such a pain to remove.. They claim that the mascara "tubes" will slide right off.. 
When came time to remove the mascara I tried to gently "slide" them off but it didn't work that way.  This mascara was super glued to my lashes and removing it cost me few lashes.... NOT GOOD.

The first thing I noticed about this mascara was how runny it is, it truly is like no other mascara. 
It does give a bit of volume but nothing major plus it gathers a bunch of lashes together making it appear as if you lost a bunch of lashes during some kind of rough battle. 
Messy to use and takes a long time to dry completely.
I didn't like the Wand either, it didn't distribute the product evenly.

Blinc mascara retails for $25 (USD) and let me tell you that the 1$ mascara from elf works miracles compare to this fellow.  
The only pros I could come up with is the fact that it is waterproof and smudge-free.
Cons, well I rather not list them...  The list is too long.... sigh*

 Will I repurchase? NEVER
Do I recommend? NO!

Well that is all for now,
Thanks for stopping by,
Kisses and fireworks,


  1. I got a sample of this in my birchbox and hated it! Didn't do anything for me and I thought it was a pain to remove too!

  2. This is the worst "expensive" mascara I have ever tried. :(
