Review: Blinc Mascara

Assalamu wa Alaykum/ Hi,

Today I'm reviewing the Blinc Water resistant Mascara. I've never heard of Blinc before I got the Lash Stash to go box. So, I was curious about this mascara. I'll tell you now, it's my least favorite out of the entire box.

It doesn't have a specific name as far as I noticed. On the Blinc website it's under 'Mascara.' It retails for $26.

So let's look at the claims of the product.

Claims:
If you're looking for a no-hassle, no-smudge mascara that you can take throughout your day with no re-application, blinc mascara is your answer. Instead of painting your lashes like conventional mascaras, blinc mascara forms tiny no-smudge, water-resistant "tubes" around your lashes. Once applied, these mascara 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 or out to dinner, your lashes will look as good in the evening as they did when you first applied blinc in the morning. blinc mascara will add volume and length to give you a radiant natural look that lasts all day. Only when you are ready for removal, the tubes will effortlessly slide off your lashes into your hand without the use of a harsh makeup remover.
blinc is better than water proof mascaras. All it takes is the combination of warm water and gentle pressure, from your fingertips, a washcloth or water pressure (i.e. shower) and the tubes will slide off your lashes effortlessly. Upon removal you will actually see the tiny mascara tubes in your hand!
Great for sensitive eyes, mascara from blinc has been clinically tested to be non-irritating making it ideal for contact lens wearers and active people in search of a mascara whose look, hold and ease of removal is without compromise.


The wand of this mascara is a classic spiral bristle wand.  

Pros:
This mascara is really black.
It separates lashes very well.
Water  resistant.

This mascara does come off easily when you rub eye your eye gently with water. It doesn't come off like normal mascaras, however. It comes off in "tendrils" or "tubes" like Blinc likes to call them. They don't look like tubes to me.

Cons:
This mascara is very wet and takes a while to dry.
This mascara doesn't provide volume or length.



In the pictures above you can see the mascara on my eyelid. It transferred from my lashes when I blinked. The mascara hadn't dried yet. However, it didn't smudge once it did dry. It lasted until I took off later that night.

Bottom Line: Like I said before this mascara is my least favorite. It's nice to have a water resistant mascara in the Lash Stash to go box. However, I probably wouldn't go out an purchase it. All it's really good for is darkening and separating your lashes. So, if you want a natural look that's water resistant. You should give this a try.

Until Next Time,

Aleema :)
