My lashes are so straight that I have to curl them both before and after I apply mascara. Unfortunately, this product is just not designed for my routine. The formula is so heavy that once I applied the first coat, any curl immediately fell flat. Once I let it dry, I tried to enhance the curl, but my lashes felt sticky and clumped together.
On a positive note: the process of removing the mascara is amazingly delightful. To get a black mascara off my eyes without significant smudging? Amazing.
I love this mascara. I have really small bottom lashes and with this mascara I get them longer and fuller.
Loved the sample, hated the full-size
I got this in my Birchbox and totally fell in love. I have the worst habit of smudging my mascara because I rub my eyes before my brain kicks in, and this mascara looks rich, deep, and eye-catching no matter how much I might accidentally try to rub it all over my face.
However, the brush that the sample came with allowed me to apply it with no clumps. The brush the full-size came with is one of those newer style brushes with the chunky rubber bristles, and it all but guarantees that you'll have giant rubbery clumps of shiny tube formula instead of eyelashes. I look and feel like I'm wearing false eyelashes. Attempting to fix the clumping is a nightmare too. I have to keep an old mascara in my makeup bag to use the brush for this mascara, because otherwise I just won't use it at all.
blinc mascara in black and now ordering brown!
I had one of the lovely women who work for Birchbox and is basically the one who takes care of me tell me about blinc Mascara as being one of the best and most progressive. Plus it's the one she uses, which says a lot because she can use any she wishes to sample first. I ordered the black and saw what she meant, the mascara forms little tubes around each lash making it impossible to rub off by accident or flake off under my eyes. Now that I have the black I'm ordering the brown to use on my eyebrows. I think it will be the perfect color and way to keep those hairs front and center. So this is a double header. I just wish they had blue and purple so I could really have an array of colors to cover my lashes. I won't use those colors on my eyebrows but bet others might. \(^o^)/
best mascara ever!
I have spent a ridiculous amount of money on mascaras and this one rocks! It glides on smooth and easy and comes off unbelievably easy with a little face wash. It doesn't clump and one tube last a long time. It's more like a gel mascara and I always receive numerous compliments because people think they are my real eyelashes! Blinc did an incredible job with their mascara and the eyeliner pen. My eyelashes are long and gorgeous thanks to Blinc!!
A great mascara!
The first time I used BLINC I was very impressed. It made my lashes look naturally great without also looking as though they were drowning in mascara.
Great mascara that lasted!
I not only loved the color but loved how long lasting it was. I put it on before I went out and didn't have to worry about reapplying it. I've tried similar mascaras and nothing really makes this one stand out but it's a great product.
Truly worry free
Not only does this mascara look great, but - once it sets - nothing can smudge it until you wash it off. The best part is how easy it is to remove - no special makeup removers required, just some warm water!
Love that this mascara does not flake. Goes on smoothly and clump-free. Very lengthening, but not super volumizing on my lashes. It is a little shocking the first time you remove it to see such big pieces of mascara come off.
No raccoon eyes with this product. it lasts really long (if you don't get it wet) so if i stay at my boyfriends and forget to take it off at night, it still looks fresh in the morning. This is the best mascara i've found - it really elongates my lashes and does a good job of keeping them from clumping up.
