Not worth it

Absolutely the worst mascara I have ever used. Instantly makes your lashes clumpy, yet somehow spidery at the same time. Definitely made it look like I had less thick lashes than I do. It takes FOREVER to wash off and the little pieces kept falling in my eyes. For the price I expected better.

My fault. Should have checked my past order. The "Amplified" is a wonderful product. This is so disappointing. Again my mistake. Ordered the wrong version.

Worst tube mascara

I love tube mascara, not only for its staying power but also for how easily it comes off.

But this stuff is just a waste. It basically creates blobs on my thick, long lashes and doesn't really do anything. If I wipe down the brush before applying it, there is no improvement. Honestly, save your money and buy something else.

Eyelashes come off too!

I purchased blinc at the new birchbox store in NYC and i am very disappointed. I thought i was going to be the same as the Trish McEvoy tube mascara that is great, but it's not. It comes off in tubes and takes a lot of your eyelashes with it! I have had it a few weeks and i'll never use it again. If you don't have many eyelashes to spare, avoid this mascara!

not worth the money

This mascara didn't do anything but lightly coat my lashes. It also does that thing where it combines together multiple lashes making then look way thinner and as if you applied drug store make up. Doesn't lengthen or volumize so I try using some of my older maraca brushes but even then it still goes on like goo.

not for me

I know most women like their eyelashes to look long, but this made my eyelashes look like spider legs on my eyes. This product is not for me.

I have sensitive eyes and purchased this product, against better judgement of paying that much for mascara hoping I'd found a great product. Used twice and trashed it!! The first time I took off with make up remover it came out harsh and clumpy, the next time it took a couple eyelashes with it!!

I really was unhappy with this product. Did nothing to lengthen or enhance my lashes, which I want, especially for a pricey mascara. It was awful to remove, even with waterproof remover and I tried watching the video several times on removing the "tubes" and still lost lashes in the process.

Messy Removal

This was not the mascara for me. That being said, I think mascara is one product that is definitely a very personal choice. What works for one, might or might not work for another...

The mascara itself was just "ok". What was interesting to me was the idea of the mascara forming little tubes to help make removal easier? That it was not. I found the removal a little messy because the tubes are removed and stay in more of a solid state than a normal mascara which would remove with remover and absorb into a cotton pad. It didn't work for me.

Do you really want to be rubbing your eyes?
Purchased

As a natural blonde, without makeup, you can barely see my lashes. But once you put on a good mascara you can see they are very long and relatively full. But I really am not a fan of mascara at all because no matter how good a makeup remover I use, nor how careful I am to avoid smearing as I wipe or rinse, it always stains under my eye and makes it look like dark circles.

SIDE NOTE TIP: This might be happening to you too and you don't even know it. If you think you have dark circles, take the three day makeup free challenge. No mascara, but use your favorite eye make-up remover morning and night, as if you had it on. Chances are pretty good that you will see more makeup lifting from that supposedly clean area. The fact is the skin is so thin there, it just soaks up all our fallout and swiped off makeup. But if you do this for three days, morning and night, you will wake up to a brighter and cheery face at the end and no dark circles.

So back to this product and the reason why I was excited. No makeup remover? Just pulls off as clean little "rubber" tubes? Sign me up!

First application. Thin & watery. I've never seen my lashes look so sparse. And you can't do extra coats. I read somewhere else that someone had the same issue the first time she used it, but she kept using it and it eventually thickened up some more (as all mascaras do), but then I had problem number two.

It felt like false lashes. It didn't "irritate" in a toxic sort of way, but it was extremely irritating. I kept blinking and touching and waiting to get used to it, but that moment just did not come. Within a hour I was trying to get it off. Then came problem number three.

This one really is the biggest issue I have with this product (it's actually two problems in one). They say, with just a little water and *pressure* each little tube will come off.

First, yes, they did come off, but then the little bits are everywhere and I am not so sure that rinsing them down the drain is good for the environment. I know it is a miniscule amount, but day after day, for all women, could add up. I am a painter, and the look and feel of these "tubes" seemed nearly exactly like the tiny latex paint flakes I would have to clean up and dispose of carefully (depending on state and city hazardous waste disposal laws and regulations). I might be way over concerned for nothing here, but that was the impression. And I didn't like the idea that it was on my lashes then.

But secondly, let's finally talk about this "pressure" removal technique. How many times have you heard people obsessing over "using your ring finger and just lightly dab" for all concealers and even moist eye creams and serums? And now they are recommending we use pressure. And if you aren't pressing on your eye lid or under eyes, then you are tugging at your lashes.. and yes, some do come out. Not a lot, but again.. over time... does this seem to make sense?

I am guessing that in a short time, or maybe years from now, people will look back and say, "What were we thinking? Isn't that common sense? Bad idea! Be more gentle with your eyes!"

Birch Box Buddies... perhaps you can start carrying a great at home lash tinting kit?? Then we could get all this product offered and it would last longer and be more gentle to boot. Please?
